Team Predictions: SC Neusiedl 1919 v Arsenal

Arsenal play their second game of pre-season in Austria against third division side SC Neusiedl 1919 later this evening.

After comfortably disposing of Barnet last weekend, the Gunners continued their good pre-season with a 3-0 victory over Sturm Graz last Wednesday. France midfielder Samir Nasri scored twice to take his tally to three thus far.

Manager Arsene Wenger will give a run out to the likes of Abou Diaby and Carlos Vela who recently returned from the World Cup. Bacary Sagna, Gael Clichy, Alex Song and Emmanuel Eboue are also expected to be involved, while Manuel Almunia will also play.

    I think he’ll start with a strong team to get a good idea of where we are at before the emirates cup.

    I think he’ll start with,


    Looking to make less changes than previous at half time;


    With, JET coming on soon after.

  10. Ricky says:

    Cheers fella.

  13. Afc kings says:

    Harris I can name the austrians goalie. He goes by the name of Joseph fritzel.

  14. Ali says:

    im getting very impatient with our transfer policy this summer.We have let go gallas,silvestre,senderos,campbell and eduardo and only signed a free transfer and an unproven defender.Wish wenger would sign a gk a couple of cbs.

  15. WillyG says:

    I was really hoping that we would sign a Gk before this weekend.I`m sure we will sign at least 1 more defender coz Campbell seems ready to sign for Newcastle…Again it seems like another frustrating summer.Now too make matters worse Almunia will start in goal very shortly.

  16. Danzinio says:

    The starting lineup was

    Its currently 2-0 to the boys at half time! Djourou came off after 30mins Vermaelen replaced him!

  17. American Gooner says:

    frimpong, wilshire, nasri, and JET were all excellent in the first half. frimpong broke up everything, sometimes several times in a row. wilshire has just class oozing everywhere, making great runs and providing balls – same with nasri, never lost it. JET started slow but finished well and looked bright.

    walcott did not look good aside from the goal. neither did gibbs in my opinion, especially on defense – lost his man continually. kos was okay but our back line was again suspect on corners – not sure whose fault that was. nordveidt was not particularly good. arshavin looked a bit disinterested and not sharp at all.

    excited to see the second half.

  18. Ricky says:

    @American Gooner:

    Agreed.. I know its only pre-season but i really dont know what to make of kos….

  19. Ole says:

    Does anyone know anything about Aaron Ramsey, I know he will be out for a long time, but earlier it was sais early autumn. But I read somewere about the end of the comming season? Anyone….

  20. American Gooner says:

    wouldnt expect ramsey this season.

    interesting how wenger played frimpong all match in that spot – thought he was excellent, as said before. the reason i am so impressed with him is that we have droves of creative players who attack and cant defend (too many to list). we only have one player (song) who is capable of sitting in that hole and breaking up play. frimpong, if he can continue his current play and is rewarded a spot on the side, would be an excellent player to spell for song – if not now, then in the future.

  21. John says:

    Ramsey shud be back by october according to ray parlour he played golf with Ramsey. Says he’s bulked up slot been in the gym slot.
    Koscielny was excellent today won everything in the air and is calm in possession looks a really good defender who will get better

  22. arseneman says:

    im happy with our current squad, we dont need another keeper. we may need another cb, but not if we have to break the bank. we are progressing in the right way, if we finish in the top 4 again i’ll be a very happy man. look at what city is spending to try to complete with us, its laughable.

  23. Angry fan says:

    @ arseneman. Are u serious? Are u happy with our squad? Our goalkeeper? U need help. Go book yourself in chief. I don’t think any normal gooner will agree with u. It’s laughable that we have signed no goalkeeper yet. We have the only and if we don’t spend it we will finish out side the top4 then all the top players will leave. I’m sure u will be one of the 1st calling for wengers head. When all I will be doing is siting back and saying I told u so.

  24. American Gooner says:


    john that is good to hear thanks for sharing. however, you and i know that there is no way he will be back to his old self by october. he may have bulked up, but he will still be short of game fitness, speed, and probably not fully recovered. no need to rush him as he is one for the future. hope you are right though.

  25. john says:

    Ray parlour was on talksport.

    I couldnt believe it when him and the arsenal chef were playing golf with aaron ramsey.

    Ray parlour said hes looking in really good shape.

    The arsenal chef was on talksport intresting to hear what he said.

    I am big big aaron ramsey fan i think he can be even better than fabregas in time.

    Hes a great lad as well.
