Lets imagine everybody was fit (even Rosicky) what would be our best starting 11 and what formation would YOU play?

We now seem to have some fantastic attacking options at the club, Ive just tried to pick an 11 (see below) and it really is not as easy as you think.

Were is Arshavin going to play? I think Wenger will start to play a 4-3-3 at Arsenal like so…

——————– Almunia

Please pick your starting 11 in this thread Link

    Nasri would just miss out for Rosicky – I think a lot of people have forgotton how good Rosicky is when fit(!)

  18. Matt says:

    I love it, nearly every single Arsenal fan has complained about no defensive midfielder all year, in all but one dream team there is no DM! So stop complaining that Wenger does it too. My team

    Fabianski (more potential than Manuel)

    Sagna Gallas Djourou Clichy

    Ashvarin Song Fabregas Nasri

    RVP Walcott

    Song does a job in front of that back four – with the other 5 ahead of him scoring goals he’ll look better! Imagine the defence splitting balls a fit RVP and Ashvarin can play for Walcotts pace!!

    Bench: Almunia, Toure, Denilson, Rosicky, Adebayor, Eduardo, Wilshere

    I also think it is time to blood Wilshere more often. I think despite everyone’s moaning we’ll finish top 4, win a cup, and have the likes of Traore, Wilshere, Gibbs, Ramsey, Vela all ready to step it up next season. Hopefully Eboue being consigned to the reserves

  19. Rash says:

    I will go for :

    —————-van persie————–dudu—————–

    Stability at the back and attack upfront. Arshavin/Rosicky.

  20. Scott says:

    Sagna Gallas Djourou Clichy
    Walcott Nasri Cesc Rosicky Arshavin

    Eduardo, Vela, Toure, Denilson, Diaby, Fabianski on bench.

  21. kenny says:

    almunia (4-5-1)

    sagna toure gallas clichy

    walcott nasri fabregas arshavin vela

    plenty of width with 2 genuine wingers right and left footed the attacking movement and creativity of the middle 3 and adebayors work rate and aerial threat…i reckon the midfield will score a lot more than they currently do and the wingers too!!

  27. jack says:

    Vals team is closest , probably a fully fit rosicky would just edge out nasri

    as for the rest, half of you dont even have a defensive mid

    how can some of you be putting arshavin in the team instead of nasri? he hasn’t played a minute of football in an Arsenal shirt. Yes, ideally Arshavin is going to turn into a fantastic player but it’s an unknown at the moment

    Rosicky has been out for so long peeps have forgotten how good he is. The toughie is Arshavin or Eduardo… bloody hell thats hard. The point is not to have a first 11 I suppose… in a team like this Traore, Diaby, Vela, Song, even maybe Ade would look really good!

    i would c the team goes this way:

    Sagna – K. Toure – Gallas – Clichy
    Fab the king – Nasri
    Wallcot Dudu

    If we r lucky to sign normal CDM so nasri can move to Dudu spot & with Rosicky can sub him or Fab when needed
    Ade will sub RVP
    I think arsenal r better playing 4-5-1 with 3 half attacking half srikers & 1 pure striker i would like us to get hutelaar instead of Ade

  41. stephen says:

    how can so many leave out fabregas, and how can anyone include sick note rosicky, arshavin has not played a game yet and adebayer has not has his heart in it for months and has one eye on a move in the close season.

  46. pez says:


    sagna gallas clichy

    theo fabragas nasri

    rosicky arshavin

    eduardo van persie


    It is indeed very tough, one thing i am sure of is Walcott will has to play, he was getting very excited until he injured himself, his speed is needed.

    Sagna Gallas Djourou Clichy

    Walcott the BEST Song Rosicky

    Van Persie Eduardo

    There is nothing better than this, maybe Arshavin for Walcott but Walcott is the only English player we have at the moment who is close to the First eleven. He will be great if given the chance not like Eboue.

    Sub: Bentner, Vela, Arshavin, Vela, Nasri, Senderos and maybe Toure

  48. elz gooner says:

    y dont i see eboue in anyones starting line ups LMFAO.
    the only players that i think can be 100% assured of their places are Sagna Clichy Almunia (for now) Gallas (on current form) Fabregas and RVP. would love to see Djourou given a prolonged run and go on to be an arsenal legend. if we need stability then Song should be there and finally Vela or Arshavin cannot be guaranteed a place as havent played enough. tough one between rosicky and nasri although nasri will go on to be better. finally i would prefer dudu over adebayor

  54. Jack Staniforth says:

    It`s the kind of question I`d prefer to answer after the summer transfers have been completed and it`s very unlikely we`ll ever get everyone A1 fit at the same time, however, here goes.

    For me…. Fabiansky – Sagna – Toure – Gallas/Djourou – Clichy/Gibbs

    Walcott – Fabregas(c) – Arshavin – Nasri/Rosicky

    Eduardo/Vela – van Persie (vc)

    How`s that look Arsene?

  55. realistic gooner! says:

    so many of you arsenal fans know !nothing! about football, absolutly nothing. people who have fab and nasri, or fab and rosicky in cetral midfield are idiots. you are clearly the fans who have been crying out for a DMC but dont play one in your teams. toure cant play there, he would be a headless chicken, do you honestly beilieve it was never tried in training? of course it has, and wouldnt have worked. almuni has been the second best keeper this season in the prem. name me one mistake you can remember? go on! djouroghghg over kolo toure! also adebayor in a class team last year got 30 goals. how many goals has he scored with no creative players? not many, having a full strength squad ade will score 30 goals again.

    anyways my team:


    sagna djuoghgjth gallas clichy



    walcott RVP Nasri

    ——walcott—- RVP——- Nasri——


  57. ??? says:

    Wow someone with brains (thanks matt). I do think its actually impossible to pick best team and formation as we going off who we think are better players not necessarily picking player who play good together.
    arshavin–van persie–rosicky//////////////walcott——–nasri———-vela
    I feel this could be best as we have adequate cover for back four, have creative flair and is equipt for fast breaks. denilson and fabregas though are not natural defenders can both defend well and both together can do job of one DM. both are great passers of the ball, though i’d tell denilson will drop alil deeper than fabregas. ill play rosicky ahead of nasri/vela because he can do what they do going forward but is a better defender which i feel will give clichy more confidence to go forward. arshavin will be allowed to let lose as sagna is very much a sound defender but denilson can slide over if need be. van peris plays b/c of link up play and ade gets nod because when on form he is our best all round complete striker n that he has power, pace, is good in air, can hold up ball, and can score

  58. Fabregas' Dad says:






    No RVP, controversial, I know. RVP’s a really great player but he slows down a lot of our attacks and this team would be all about incisive and quick movement. Eduardo’s our best finisher and makes the best runs and Arshavin is an amazing player in the hole behind the striker.

    Possibly the most important reason I’ve left RVP out is because if we play him we’re probably gonna have to play Adebayor. I don’t think Wenger’s ever played Eduardo and RVP together so I assume he has a reason for his reluctance to do this. He doesn’t play well with Bendtner ‘cos the both play deep, although playing him up front with Walcott could be a potentially interesting combination.

    Walcott wouldn’t fit the system for me because his footballing brain is nowhere near the level of say Rosicky or Arshavin, though he would be a great substitute if required.

    Denilson’s necessary for defensive cover, a midfield of Rosicky, Nasri, Arshavin and Fabregas would be too attack minded, and saying they would need to defend less because they would keep possession isn’t really a good excuse because Wenger’s tried this type of midfield before and the system hasn’t worked in the past without Gilberto as a holding midfielder. Ideally we could get a really good defensive midfielder because I don’t think Denilson will start playing really well for another season or so.

    The back five pretty much selects itself. Toure hasn’t been good enough since last January (though he’s decent defensive cover) so Djourou’s a better option. Sagna, Gallas and Almunia are shoe-ins but Clichy hasn’t played well this season and no one has actually claimed the slot next to Gallas for himself.

    Tough one this, anyway here goes

  60. jazbo says:

    Sorry missed out Diaby

  61. Jack Staniforth says:

    All getting a bit technical for me. Maybe we just list the players we would like to see play together and let Mr. Wenger sort out their positions. I must confess living at the other end of the world hardly makes me an expert so I`ll leave that to the residents of Seven Sisters Road where I grew up. Forgive my ignorance but who the hell is djuoghgjth, more over how do you pronounce it? I thought all the Aboriginee`s were in Australia.
