Frimpong & Wilshere start against Legia Warsaw

Arsene Wenger has opted for Jack Wilshere and Emmanuel Frimpong in midfield for the Gunners final pre-season friendly against Legia Warsaw.

The duo have impressed throughout pre-season, most notably in the Emirates Cup where particularly Wilshere drew plaudits from many watching Arsenal supporters.

On the goalkeeping front, Lukasz Fabianski is handed a start against his former club while Marouane Chamakh is supported by Theo Walcott and Tomas Rosicky up top.

Fabianski
Sagna – Koscielny – Vermaelen – Clichy
Wilshere – Frimpong – Nasri
Walcott – Chamakh – Rosicky

Subs: Szczesny, Gibbs, Nordtveit, Eboue, Lansbury, Emmanuel-Thomas, Vela.

Im just praying there’s no injuries to be honest., that’s the most important thing. Then decent performances from certain individuals and a win to lead us into the season on an unbeaten run.

This looks likely like the team that might play against Liverpool.

Hold on, where’s Denilson? I thought he was penciled in for this game?

Good line up although I think Rosicky and Nasri will keep switching.

I do not understand how Wenger doesnt Cringe like i do wen Fabianski gets on the ball? Surely Wenger cannot be blind to see that our defence will cost us again this coming season

That is the reason why Fabianski can’t and shouldn’t be our number one.

Gr8 gaol by Chamakh. Both him and Nas combined together. They have been our only two players to have turned up today. Walcott has been a Ghost in this game!!!

Wilshere and Frimpong are really not ready. They are giving the ball away too easily and not closing down. good goal arsenal, we can come back!!

Kevin

Chamakh!! Great header.

We need a top class goalkeeper, the keepers we have now are a joke. We need a no nonsense, clear the ball, player and ref if need be central defender and we need an enforcer in the centre of the midfield. Relying on Song all season is not going to work.

I now no longer care about constricting the younger players, we need better players and if the young ones can’t match that standard, let them go.

This is a shocking performance.

Someones needs to put Fabianski out of his misery now. He will never be a top goal keeper. NEVER!!

WHAT A JOKE OF A DEFENCE ND GOALKEEPER WE HAVE- IF WENGER CANT SEE THE PROBLEMS AT THE BACK THEN WE MIGHT NOT EVEN FINISH IN THE TOP 4- I HOPE THEY SCORE ANOTHA 3 N D 2ND HALF MAYBE WENGER MITE GET THE MESSAGE!

AND I HAVE TO SAY BUT FOR ME SAGNA IS THE BEST RITE BACK IN THE WORLD

I have to touch on that subject and say Sagna’s decision making in the final 3rd has improved. His final balls and pass seems to have come back. I hope he can keep it up all season

LAST YEAR WE KNEW THE DEFENCE WAS WEAK AT CORNERS ND FREE KICKS- SO WHAT DOES WENGER DO- SPEND THE SUMMER WATCHN THE WC ND DOIN NOTHING ABOUT IT- HOW MANY TIMES DO OUR KEEPERS HAV TO FLAP AT A CORNER BEFORE WENGER GETS RID OF THEM? NO EXCUSE ABOUT INJURIES OR REFS THS YEAR THE BLAME MUST FALL ON ONE MAN ONLY

@arseneman: That is not rocket science. Overhyped english youngsters. Prospects is what they are. Grown men and a tight tactical midfield show their weaknesses. Rosicky is also being overrun b/c Wilshere isn’t thinking quickly enough.

They’ll get their in the end. Cesc is light years ahead of Wilshere. Denilson would be better in this match.

f**k me its GROUNDHOG DAY!!! This game is bringing back all those awful memories of last season. NOTHING has changed! Well if Wenger doesn’t buy a new goalkeeper after this showing he never will!. I was actually looking foward to the start of the season but if this lot can make us look this poor what will an average Liverpool side do to us!! We have some serious problems defensively! Get the cheque book out and buy some quality defenders/goalkeeper quick or our season will be over before its even begun.

ok, keeper was clueless for the 2nd game, but the defence was to blame for the 1st and 3rd goals.

The second goal was him living up to his nickname flapianski and the first and third was shocking defending due to inabilty to close the player down for the first goal and for the third goal inabilty to clear the ball away.
