Why the Carling Cup is waiting for Arsenal

September 18, 2012

In the past the club have used the youngsters in a blooding experiment,  but with the current composition of the squad and the Next Gen Competition, Arsenal have got to be firm favourites to life the Carling Cup this season.


Well our decent youngsters have all come through to claim 1st team/just behind 1st team spots:

Chezney, Gibbs, Frimpong, Coquelin, Wilshere, OX

The second rate youngsters and the 1st teamers who could not cut it have been shipped out:

Lansbury, Bendter etc

Now with the really good up and coming youngsters competing regularly in the Next Gen series, coupled with an immensely deep 1st team squad with maybe 7 or 8 top midfielders competing for just 3 midfield starting spots, our Carling cup side this year could be a midfield of Jack, Coq, and Rambo.

Andre Santos looks a certain starter, and you can definitely see Jack being deployed back into competitive football with the 3 games before Christmas (should we win through each round of course)

With Per, TV and Kos fighting it out and one man missing out a lot of games, this man being Kos right now, he now also looks a certain starter for the Carling cup.

Up front, you could say Giroud could get his chance to boost his confidence, with maybe Chamakh backing him up.

You do have real emerging young guns like Gnabry who will stake a claim, subject to Next Gen fixtures.

Exciting times ahead, the fabled lack of strength in depth is just that…. a fable.

    Some good points but not sure who’ll be RB if Sagna’s not back and the thought of Djourou against any quality opposition sends a shudder through my bowels. Possible team:

    Fabianski or Mannone; Coquelin, Djourou (urgh!),Kos, Santos; Frimp, Jack, Rambo; Walcott, Giroud, Fatty (Arshavin). Subs to include Yennaris & Gnabry
