Captain for the day.

Arsenal vs. Stoke City
Emirates Stadium, London
Kickoff: 830 AM EDT
TV: Fox Soccer Plus, (with subscription)
SBN Stoke...perspective?: mainly anger.

Arsenal. Stoke. You all know the drill.

Arsenal fielding a bit of a shock lineup today: (4-3-3): Szczesny, Djourou, Koscielny, Mertesacker, Andre Santos, Song (c), Arteta, Ramsey, Walcott, Gervinho, Chamakh.

Subs: Fabianski, Frimpong, Rosicky, Benayoun, Park, Van Persie.

Two things: 1) clearly, Wenger felt it was time to rest RvP. I tend to agree, but I worry. 2) Song as captain!

This oughta be interesting.
