    Starting 11

    I agree about Rosicky, he could be even more influential than Cesc if played in his Czech role, I really believe he is THAT good.

    Could be in the top 10 players in the world if he achieves his true potential (which is where Wenger usually shines above ALL others).

    Odd that he's played on the wing.

    • Notice that you've all discounted Hleb. If the guy became more ruthless in the final third, and knew when to release the ball, he could be an automatic first choice. He does strike fear into the heart of opponents when he decides to run at them, but all too often last year he failed to deliver that killer final ball.
      Regarding Rosicky - this has to be the season for him to sign, or else we can expect him to ship out next Summer. I certainly had high expections of him last season - particularly after his World Cup display (albeit against the USA), but, a few Liverpool games apart, he never quite delivered........

      I would still favour Gilberto ahead of Diaby - although the latter will get his chance at the outset of the campaign (with Gilberto rested after his Copa America efforts).

      I'd agree that the arrival of Eduardo has probably edged Adebeyor our of the starting line up, but with so many games to play over the course of the season, I think he'ill still get his 30-35 games during the upcoming campaign.
