Manuel ALMUNIA (GK)
Nacer BARAZITE
Nicklas BENDTNER
Gael CLICHY

James DUNNE
Rui FONTE
Gavin HOYTE
Justin HOYTE

Defence: Vito MANNONE. Armand TRAORE. Havard NORDTVEIT. Gavin HOYTE. Paul RODGERS. Midfield: Nacer BARAZITE. Mark RANDALL. DENILSON. Jack WILSHERE. Forwards: Carlos VELA. Theo WALCOTT Expect to see a few more familiar faces during the match, but I am particularly keen to see what Barazite does this year. Wilshere looks bright talent too.

Looking forward to hopefully seeing Ramsey, Vela, Simpson, Randall and Nordtveit. They can all feature in the first team in the coming season (not just in Carling cup). I would love also to see Wilshire get a run with some of the first-teamers in this game.

you should hammer them, dont do what villa did and stand off them though.

I doubt we will hammer them, the team should be too experimental to play we any real cohesion, but we should have the quality to win by 2 goals.

I think we'll see most of the players over the ninety. I'm looking forward to see Vela, Wilshire and Barazite. I'm going with a Barnet season ticket holder, so it should be fun!
