What is up Gooner Nation! It is Friday and I for one am happy! Even though it was a short week here as Monday was Thanksgiving in Canada. Work has been busy to say the least. I was also going to do a preview podcast but because of scheduling it was just not possible. So I figured I’ll write a brief preview here.
With the team news coming out yesterday, I guess it is safe to say that the lineup probably will not change from our last Premier league match. The usual suspects will be starting, the likes of Sanchez, Ozil, Cech, Theo etc will probably be the first names on the sheet. So here is my predicted lineup.
Even though Le Coq, is back and fit I feel AW will be resting him or most certainly on the bench for this match. Coming off an injury AW might not want to risk it. As we have seen so far this season he is in no rush to bring back players. Giroud and Ramsey are both unavailable as stated in his presser yesterday so no real guess as to who will line up upfront. The deadly trio of Iwobi, Sanchez and Theo will trouble Swansea’s defense. Ozil at least from what AW’s presser, is fit and will be doing a final check but should start.
Right on, Swansea on the other hand have had a terrible start to the season with just a draw under their belt. Not only that they have lost their manager in Francesco Guidolin. The newly appointed American manager Bob Bradley (TFC’s Michael Bradley’s Daddy) will be in charge. Will be a difficult task for Bradley as this is his first game in charge. Not only that but wondering how much time has he had with the team in order to make preparations? Lukasz Fabianski makes his return to Arsenal and will hope to be on his “A” game against his old club. Typically the Swans are an aerial threat whereas Arsenal suck ass, other than that; Swansea’s defending on the counter attack is shit and that is where we will shine. Our attack on the counter has been deadly, just ask Chelsea HA.
Overall I think this game should be pretty straight forward for the boys. But you can never right off Swansea as they have been a thorn in our side for a while now. Just remembering Michu tearing us a new one. Can you believe that, Fu#king Michu, where the hell is he now?!?! Cue the Jeopardy music…….Ok back. He is playing for Spanish second division team Real Oviedo, his first club. Let’s hope these Swansea demons are long gone and we can see this through and onto the next one!
Which of course is Champions League football against. Ludogorets Razgard, sounds likes a small town where Thor would go. That game will be on Wednesday and if all goes according to plan and the football gods that be line it all up, than that would be another straight forward 3 points and we be sitting pretty in that as well. One could only hope. Ladies and Gentlemen that is it for me. As always we will talk to you guys on the next Full90Gooner Podcast until then, enjoy the weekend and FOOTBALL IS BACK BITCHES!
