    I think that one depends on who can score more goals. If King and Hulse are on form there will be a lot.

    The ref was a chippendale dancer for barcelona. I swear.
    It's too late now, but i can't help lamenting that we were this close, and we lost it. but it wasn't us. It was that chippendale dancer...
    Ronaldhino played badly. Henry was at his best, but a little off beat. he was too tired. lehmann did do wrong. BUT A FUCKING RED CARD WASN'T DESERVED!

    i swear, if it weren't for the ref, arsenal would have fucking won with a score of 3-2.
    EDIT: Arsenal with owen. yess...

    I don't really care about what happened in the champions league anymore, Arsenal are the best in Europe, we dominated Barca until the sending off, we are the best we just don't have the trophy to go with that title.

    I think next year could be our year though, we have to win it sooner or later.

    it would be the same thing as asking why didnt he sign Rosicky earlier or anybody else for that matter....as for Owen...Owen and Henry upront looks kind of small and un-physical if oyu know what i mean...

    Owen, Henry and Adebayor up front. Fabregas, Rosicky, and Gilberto in midfield. I would definitely try that.

    i would try a 352 instead....like Gilberto and Fabregas in the defending mid, then Cole on the left of midfield and Ljunberg on the right with Rosicky supporting Henry and Owen...that would work...

    I'd never play 3-5-2 if I was a manager, you need 4 defenders otherwise attackers can break through the defence much more easily if they get through midfield.

    I'd have Owen and Henry up front with Rosicky on the left wing, Gilberto and Fabregas in the centre and Hleb/Ljunberg on the right. Adebeyor has alot to learn before he can be a regular in the attack, even though he looked majorly impressive when he played for Monaco. However he seems to me to be more of a playmaker or a second striker so maybe 4-3-3 isn't out of the quiestion however you need either Ljunberg or Hleb on one of the wings, Fabregas doesn't play at his best on the right, only the centre. Give him a few more years and he'll be world class.

    a back three would work with campbell or toure playing as center then senderos playing on the slightly wider bit and with Gilberto and Fabregas screening the defence i dont see why it would be too shaky...

    Having a taller, stronger striker doesn't really matter with Arsenal anyway because they don't tend to play high passes as much as most other teams. It's just that I prefer a target man-type player with someone faster playing off him.
