Arsenal v Coventry Preview

September 25, 2012

The young guns along with the first teamers  who are not getting the requisite playing time take to the pitch in the newly named Capital One Cup tonight, and it should give us a huge insight into the next generation along with the strength in depth the first team have.  The game is not going to be broadcast anywhere live, so no streams will be available, which is fine by me as I’m through to the latter stages of an online poker tournament kicking off at the same time. 

If you are interested in a players rewards card click here  From the photos on the Arsenal site it appears Emi Martinez will keep goal with Yennaris and Santos full backs and Miquel and JD in the middle of defence.  The front 6 will be Coquelin, Ox, Arshavin, Gnabry, Giroud and Theo.  This is a shot in the dark really, but I would imagine that side is at least 75% correct.  Has a cracking balance to it.

Gnabry is the raved up young gun this season, so will be interested to see more of him, but I’m told by a friend who is a real avid and seasoned pro at watching our reserves/youths that the man who is the real next star coming through will be our Argentine between the sticks, Emi Martinez.  Apparently Argentina are ready to fast track him already into the national side.

Coventry will not provide much resistance, they are hopeless, and in dire form having been relegated from the Championship last season they have carried on where they left off last season.

In reality, Giroud will absolutely never get a better chance to score at least one goal… he should really look for a brace at the minimum as the defence he plays against will be pathetic.

All in all, a lowly cup when compared to the UCL, but a far more fascinating set of games than the opening group stages of the latter named European competition.

    i think that Walcott may be sold, but just now Arsenal.com has a link saying Gnabry is a winger and that he could be playing for the first team this year…….so that is a now another player in Walcotts position and he isn’t signing a contract and is demanding that he plays as a striker (i reckon this is not true i reckon it is about money but this is another thing he is complaining about) and gnabry is a better player than Walcott in general not just in the wing position.

    Please keeping pressure on Giroud to score can never n ever solve his goal problem but company it.
    Complacency can kill one’s dream. With just a round of play the so called English champions are out of the league one cup.
    On the hand, European champions fielded a good squad n took their chances. Arsenal must just do same. Just to win no matter who scores. Gunner 4 life. Stay blessed.

    I think this season will be good for AFC because if look into the team you find we have large squad never happened in history of Wenger,so I expect winning

  6. Wenger still the greatest manager in the premiereship in my opinion. Just to be able to have remained competitive with the fincancial giants like Chelsea, ManUtd is a testiment to how great he is.
