By this time in the year I think we pretty much all know what we're doing, so there's not really much of a reason to get too fancy with this. Arsenal are playing Stoke. This is where we discuss the game. In doing so, please act like real humans rather than horrible animals. That way we can all enjoy ourselves, and nobody has to get hurt.
As soon as someone can, there will be lineups posted for both teams. Until then feel free to discuss literature.
Walcott is dropped due to illness. Vermaelen, Arteta, and Bendtner on the bench.
