Arsenal v. Celtic: Team News

Arsenal v. Celtic: Team News

Good evening. Apologies for the lack of a preview. Yesterday I had to drive 8 and 1/2 hours with all my stuff to move into my new apartment at the university. Moving such a long distance is a hassle.

Here is the Arsenal lineup for the first match against Celtic and its the same team we put out against Everton.

Almunia, Sagna, Gallas, Vermaelen, Clichy, Song, Denilson, Fabregas, Bendtner, Arshavin, van Persie

Bench: Mannone, Diaby, Eduardo, Ramsey, Silvestre, Eboue, Gibbs

Cheers everyone. Enjoy the match.

Verm is giving a great impression again. Gallas is jealous and giving his best again. What a deflection (a deliberate one for me)! :D :D

The Verminator was brilliant in that half. He single-handedly stopped 3 great opportunities for Celtic. It's nice to have a CB with such a fighting spirit who still has good technique with the ball. Alex Song has done very well too, breaking up play, covering for Gael and keeping us ticking when Cesc gets forward. It's a tough ask for a guy not blessed with too much pace to cover the huge pitch tonight. Arsh still doesn't look that happy in his new position, but has still shown some nice touches.

It's a day for fluke goals today obviously, what with Bent scoring against Chelski and Hleb scoring for Stuttgart! haha

To much pace in this game for us to pass properly, hopefuly the Celtic players will get tierd in the second half and things slow down a bit. I also am very impressed with our Belgian, he's been brilliant and Song has played well but we need to see more from AA and RvP they have been very quiet.

Verminator has really been so good. As usual Arsene knows. I now like the way Song fills in for Gallas automatically when Gallas goes forward. Am beginning to gain more confident with our quality especially after the few games we have played. But then it is just the beginning of the season. Can you just imagine I had no butterflies during the Celtic corners unlike last year. Theteam has really mtured. But then it is just the beginnig.

Can only rely on text reports (at work, no audio/video feed of the game) - I take it the Gallas goal wasn't a "sublimely veiled deft touch administered by a lethal poacher who should have made a career as a striker" as one site billed it as then ?
