He's not resting him it's called rotation with two good goalkeepers look what Barcelona do with Ter Stergen and Bravo and previously Real used to with Casillas and Navas.

Cech is our BPL GK
Ospina is our CL and COC GK
As for the FA CUP who knows

Besides that COYG.



It's always tough to rotate, but gotta keep other players fresh...................and happy.

If you have BT Internet it comes free and it's also free with a Virgin box unfortunately I don't have either, I'm stuck with sky for now.

Cech isnt being rested, Ospina is being played.


Either way I'd like Cech to be played. Ospina can play in FA cup and Capital one cup. This is the champions League ffs, we got complacent in Zagreb "playing" our bench and it cost us. You can't keep everyone happy.

That's the point so Cech will get Fa cup and Ospina gets CL? that's not right it should be the other way around you can keep Ospina happy with that i'm pretty sure.

We could have Neuer in goal for this competition tbh but the fact is our squad ain't good enough to win it.

Ospina didn't cost us though.

the front 3 i was asking for before the season started: alexis -- walcott -- chamberlain :arse fan:
even though chamberlain let me down with his cameo vs leicester, still buzzing to see them work together.
too bad i have to endure gibbs at the same time.

Ozil in between Sanchez, Ox and Walcott. Sit on my face!


Wenger has been ruthless today not only dropped his son Ramsey but Mertesacker on his birthday.

Nice team!

Surprised to see Coquelin in there but lets hope he's fully fit.

Like this team, would have had Monreal for Gibbs, but I'm guessing Gibbs gets the cup games

Hopefully, Cech starts R16 onwards and against Bayern

Cech reportedly has a slight calf problem.

Front 3 should get chances unless Santi and Ozil get bossed and pressured too much. If they sit back just a bit, we should be able to pick them apart.
