Paul: Last night + Arsenal shouldn’t rush Vermaelen back for Chelski

Posted on October 26, 2011 by Nitesh

Last Night and Should we start TV5 on Saturday??

After last night’s victory which saw us progress into the quarter finals of the Carling Cup (not bad for a crisis club), I was quite impressed with a couple of performances. Firstly Arshavin, who I thought had an excellent game and now he seems to be getting back to the form of old which is brilliant and as I have criticised him in the past I am really pleased to see his form returning. Also, I would like to mention Park who we have not seen a lot of. But if last night was anything to go by we will be seeing a lot more of him in the future. I thought he was the MOTM—- his movement was great all night and his link up play was good indeed and he took his goal really well.

Now onto my question; TV5 is finally back playing. I know he came off last night but I don’t think it is anything too serious, and I was wondering whether we should start with him on Saturday? Ordinarily, I would say yes because he is our No.1 centre back and if he is fit and healthy he should play. However, we must take into account that he is just returning from injury and he is not 100% match fit. We don’t want to rush him back in case he breaks down again. Nothing could be worse for us at the moment than if he were to get injured again and couldn’t play for another two months. We don’t need to take the risk right now. Also the partnership of Kos and Mertesacker is really beginning to gel and do we want to disrupt them at the present time. Added to the question– which one will you drop for TV5 to return? It would be a difficult choice as both are doing a good job.

I know playing Chelski is a big game and we should always try to play our best team. But on the flip side we still have a long way to go in the season and I would rather we didn’t take the risk. Maybe just having him on the bench as an option would be a better way to go at the moment. I know that a lot of people won’t agree with me but that is just my opinion. I honestly think we can go into that game and get a result because we are now starting to play with much more confidence. So here’s to another 3 points on Saturday.

    No Drogba. Yay. I’d prefer two quick CB’s for this one because Chelsea has small nimble players now with Torres, Sturridge, Ramieres and Mata.

    I would risk TV along side Kos for this one, they had a good combination against Udenaise.

    RB is gonna be a headache for Wenger with Mata and Cole bombing down the left and Lampard favouring that side to cut back on his right to shoot. Be nice to see a mid that really gets back and stuck in on the right to help out that make shift RB.

    I thought Park looked more dynamic and more of a goal threat than Chamakh so for me that was the big plus of last night. I hope he is on the bench on saturday. If I had to choose to drop a CB to make way for TV5 then I think on current form it would be Mertesacker. I know I have criticized Koscielny in the past but he has played a couple of good games so deserves to keep his place.

    should play TV and Mert in the center with Kos at RB… seems the best solution to our defensive problems… why give up Mert just to have Djourou fill in at right back?

    Arsenal is the most discussed team on all networks in the world! Why? Because they are just great! And, if there are disloyal “fans”, just go! We need true honest supporters, not goodweather fakes. Arsenal will be better than ever just after the cohesion of the new players, than that full Arsenal of bullets will fly into the goal posts!
