Tuesday, December 27, 2011

TV Coverage: Fox Soccer Plus / foxsoccer.tv (both for subscribers)
Form: Arsenal WLWLW, 5th place | Wolves LWLLD, 17th place
Arsenal vs. Wolves. Sometimes I wish it was Arsenal vs. actual wolves. Or any team vs. actual wolves. And then Fulham could just be eleven cottages, and Stoke could be eleven clay pots...
Anyway, here are the lineups:
Arsenal (4-3-3): Szczesny; Djourou, Koscielny, Mertesacker, Vermaelen; Song, Arteta, Rosicky; Benayoun, Gervinho, van Persie.
Subs: Almunia, Miquel, Coquelin, Ramsey, Arshavin, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Chamakh.
Theo Walcott is sick, and thus not available today. Johan Djourou must have stolen his life essence, because somehow he's recovered from a groin injury well enough to start.
Wolves (4-5-1): Hennessey, Zubar, Berra, Johnson, Ward; Forde, Henry, Milijas, Jarvis, Hunt; Fletcher.
Wolves aren't allowed any subs, because I say so.
Just kidding: Subs: Elokobi, Stearman, Ebanks-Blake, Hammill, Doyle, De Vries, Guedioura.
