Sorry

Mis- count .

Jiminez is up to two votes .

Even with his stupid hair cut to make himself more noticable.

It's desperate....

Green

Ilunga----Gabbidon--Upson-----Spector

Collison-----Kovac---Parker-------Behrami

----------Cole---------Hines----------------

4-4-2, pack the midfield out with ball winners and hope for a lucky long ball, Cole causes confusion, Hines finishes it off.

Ilunga at right back and Spector at left back is pretty desperate I would say :lol:

8 teams selected so far

Diamanti stuck on 2 , Jiminez up to 3 .

Sky are having a re-run of "My left foot" this week to act as a prompt to remind the masses of Diamantis capabilities .

dyer - spector - upson - illunga

behrami - parker - collison - diamanti

first goal for us within 20 mins: 2 : 2

first goal for arsenal within 10 mins: hm, maybe not more than 4 from arsenal if they are tired.



i got sth wrong and put behrami on the right. this is the correct version:

------------------green---------------------

dyer(faubert if dyer is not fit for 90 mins) - spector - upson - illunga

collison(jimenez) - parker - diamanti(noble) - behrami

------------ cole - hines(junior - if dyer is fit for 90mins) --------------


i would bring on faubert for dyer and jimenez for colliison who might not be able to go over 90 mins with 100 %. if hines makes some runs you can also replace him with junior to have a quick man on the field also in the late game.
diamanti usually is gone after 60-70 mins so noble gets his chance too.

but here is what zola will do:

------------green--------------
faubert (gabbidon) - upson - tomkins - da costa
------------ parker(kovac after parker gets sent off) -----------
--- diamanti ---- behrami ---
cole(franco in 90+4)

---------------------------Green--------------
Collison--------Upson--------Tomkins-------Illunga
------Behrami------Parker------Noble------
-----------Hines--Cole----Diamental--------

And before you say playing Collison there is anything - he can play anywhere because he is God.

Failing that stick Collison where Noble is and put Gabbidon in there...

I think Zola will probably play -

---------------------Green------
Faubert--Tomkins---Upson---Illunga
Behrami-----Parker-----Noble-----Collison

we get thumped if we played with 2 wingers in this one.
Play the diamond Parker, Collison, Behrami and Noble at the top of it please with Hines up front. I'd even be tempted to go with Nouble or Franco from the start, really rough them up, there defence isn't the toughest.
Keep it tight and narrow and we may just sneak something, we need some type of continuity to the side, i don't think we've picked the same team more then twice.

------------------------Green---------------

Specs-------Upson----Tomkins---Ilunga


-----------------------Kovac------------------


Noble-------------Parker--------------Stanislas


----------------------Jiminez-----------------------

------------------------Cole--------------------------


Subs:
Kurucz, Faubert, Da Costa, Collison, Diamanti, Hines, Franco

Kovac to screen the back 4 (i.e. man-mark Fabregas)
Spector to overlap Noble (or pass long from deep)
Stanislas to give some width for once.

Tactical substitution (1) Collison to replace Stanislas if a miracle happens and we're leading at the break
(2) Hines to replace Jiminez with 15 minutes left, with a brief to stay on the halfway line for clearances and just
run at their defence

2-1 West Ham - after a relentless attack on our goal.

Pretty much the line up I would pick

Whilst i do feel we need to give Cole more support, this is one game where we need to pack the midfield, imo. I'd probably have slightly different personell (I think I'd start with Behrami for Noble, and Collison for Stanislas), but agree with the formation. I'd would like to see Stanislas given a chance to run at them, even if it's from the bench. I agree with Spector at RB

This is the team Zola will pick - (injuries aside)

---------------------------Green-----------------------------
Faubert--------Upson--------Tomkins-------Illunga
--------Behrami---Parker----Noble--Collison------
------------------------Diamanti----------------------------
------------------------------Cole----------------------------

I think what is really hurting us at the moment are the silly defensive mistakes, we are putting ourselves under so much pressure because of sloppy goals conceeded. I hope more than anything we are working on this this week.

I'd be tempted for an ultra detensive 4-5-1 formation & put in Kovac for Diamanti (to practically man mark Fabregas) & look to nick it 1-0.

---------------------------Green-----------------------------
Faubert--------Upson--------Tomkins-------Illunga
----------------------Kovac---Parker---------------------
--------Behrami---------Noble----------Collison------
------------------------------Cole----------------------------

Heart, head, toes, fingers, legs etc all say a comfortable Arsenal win. But you never know :crest:

Leaving aside the teams prefaced with "I think Zola will pick"

We have 13 team selections so far

Diamanti is in 3 of them

Jiminez is in 5 ( Personally I find this worrying having watched the reserves last night - but it's all about opinions)

Only other real point of interest is I think 4 different right back selections so far .Wonder if Wengers figured out where to attack on Sunday .

And Arshavin looks top drawer .

Always admire a man who knows his own mind and the courage to stick to his guns .

Our first selection with both Jiminez and Diamanti in the same side .

Jon-it's Arsenal next week .

Why the **** do we not play the diamond any more? We played some great stuff last year with that....even Di Michele looked good...

---------------------Green---------------------
Specs----Tomkins-----Upson-----Illunga
--------------------Parker---------------------
---------Behrami----------Collison---------
---------------------Jimi------------------------
---------------Cole----Hines-----------------

As for Diamante, lets amputate his left foot and give it to someone else....Mark Noble maybe...?
