its such a shame we going to have so many key players missing especailly as they are all attacking players.
should be a quiet day for the arsenal defence with no modric, lennon & defoe to deal with.
at least people will stop going on about lennon not willing to play when hurt, hes proved he was injured as hes missing at least 2 games.
if the inevitable happens & we lose then the 2 home games against sunderland & wigan will be massive.
there will be a lot of pressure on us considering we have lost 2 league games in a row.
If our squad isn't good enough to beat them, then that shows how far we've come (or not). Surely after shelling out umpteen tens of millions on players, the odd injury should be covered.
Obviously, every team would want to field their stongest team for every game. But it don't work that way.
I think we still have a team that can win - it just comes down to confidence. If we try to run and hide, then I personally think we'll get completely stuffed - but if we play like a top four team - ie expecting* to win every game, then I think we can pull it off - even with Daffy, Modric and Lennon out.

I dont think the goons will relish a fired up Bentley turning out for us again...look what happened last time round.
It would be easy to start bemoaning our injuries ahead of this game but as already been said...we ought to have a squad big enough to take this in our stride. Ok the odds are beginning to stack up against us this week but as I said earlier....this result will not define our season which ever way it goes. You can bet your ar5e a lot of gooners will be breathing a bit easier now that our most potent attackers are all going to be missing....but cest la vie....lets see if any of our fringe players fancy being a hero for once.
