Team News: Arsenal vs Fulham

Arsenal return to league action this afternoon after an very good/dissaspointing (delete as applicable) draw away in the Champions League midweek.

It`s not been a great time for Gooners recently, following a fairly promising start to the season the boys have been very lacklustre of late, and as November is traditional our worst month it`s imperitive the register 3 points against Fulham today.

Jack Wilshere is rested with Coquelin taking his place whilst Theo Walcott gets a much deserved start in the league.

Szczesny makes the bench after a lengthy injury layoff.

Let`s see how the rest of the team lines up.

Arsenal: Mannone, Sagna, Koscielny, Mertesacker, Vermaelen, Coquelin, Arteta, Cazorla, Walcott, Podolski, Giroud.

Substitutes: Szczesny, Jenkinson, Santos, Ramsey, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Arshavin, Chamakh.

Another 2 goal lead given away. Just not good enough.

You'd feel something just isn't right about the team in that half. Lets hope we bring improvements in the 2nd.

we have changed enough players for the past 7-8 years with no results on the pitch, only profits. can we change those at the top for once? if arsenal never pay top wages even to a 40 goal-a-year player, those at the top certainly don't deserve to earn the highest wages in epl either

We've started doing that thing again... Where players run past the ball to get back into position instead of just going directly for the ball. At the beginning of the season it looked like we'd stopped doing that, and we were putting in the most tackles every match. Attacking-wise we looked a lot better than we have recently though.

Well .... another week, another uninspiring performance. We were better going forward but just so sloppy in possession. Terrible terrible stuff.

When we were going directly for the ball we were winning a lot of tackles, and looked so defensively solid, but now players are running past it to get back into position again, teams can once again just walk it through. Except at the end, we were really winning every loose ball at the end, unlucky not to nick it.

There goes our best defensive record. Meant nothing, anyway, if we are not winning games.

its quite sad to see this demise, you just dont have that X-Factor anymore nor that fear-factor for opposing teams.... Fool'em were well comfy in controlling possession in the last 20mins which just should not happen against a top club at home pushing for a leading goal.... so little intensity to overwhelm an average side with no pace upfront, you shudda pushed right up to the halfway line knowing you can compress the game in thieir half safely with neither Berbatov nor Ruiz (both central) having the pace to counter well.... stale stale mindset again..

Wenger has to rally his troops or consider a change in priorities, one way or the other. They don't even respond to his rallying cry to improve defensively, today. What's up with that? When the manager says he wants improvements in any department, you would expect the players to respond because he must have had some relevant drills to make that happen. This was a poor performance by our back 4 at times; totally lacking in confidence. Not a bad penalty by Arteta but I guess the Fulham keeper obviously knows how he plays them and guessed right. But, we should be winning this by some margin.
