Realistic starting XI for Arsenal next season?


Next Season’s XI?

Arsenal have shown a consistency and class this season but have once again illustrated that they still aren’t able to beat the very top teams in Europe and at home.

They failed in Europe against Bayern Munich and it looked like men against boys for a lot of the time in the big games in The Premier League. In particular, Liverpool and Chelsea seemed more powerful than Arsenal in the league games they played. More steely when it came to the crunch.

With The Emirates build now water under the bridge Arsenal are surely in apposition to spend big and Arsene Wenger must fancy breaking with tradition and really enjoying himself in the transfer market this summer.

It’s time to start spending a bit more freely – especially if he really wants to bring some serious silverware back to the club.

And we actually think that they will splurge this summer. We expect to see at least a couple of really good strikers is coming into the summer. Loic Remy would be a great addition and reports continue to smoulder about Karim Benzema joining the club. Those two would sort out the striking department no end.

Apart from the Arsenal could really do with a top quality defensive midfielder and perhaps another right back if, as expected, Sagna leaves the club.

Arsene Wenger might also have a punt on a new goalkeeper as Flappyhandski looks like another possible departure.

So this is how we think after might line up for the first game next season – fitness permitting of course. No starting place for Ozil, Giroud, Arteta or Oxlade-Chamberlain in what is beginning to resemble an exceedingly strong squad. Let’s have your thoughts Arsenal fans.

Arsenal – Casillas, Milner, Mertesacker, Koscielny, Gibbs, Bender, Wilshere, Ramsey, Cazorla, Walcott, Benzema

    What a poor and UNREALISTIC team.
    Would Wenger drop our most expensive signing?
    Would Wenger play a Right Midfielder as a Right Back, a place which he has had strong cover from Sagna, Lauren and Dixon over his career?
    Would he drop Szczesney after his best ever season, and only one goal away from Golden Gloves?

    Here is a more realistic team:
    Aurier – Mertesacker – Koscielny – Gibbs
    Bender – Ramsey
    Walcott – Ozil – Cazorla

    I also think he’ll get a new winger because Walcott has had bad luck with injuries.

      For a winger due to Walcott having no luck with injuries,…we have Serge Gnabry!

    WOW! What an unrealistic team. I think this will be Arsenal team next season inshallah
    Aurier Mert Kos Gibbs
    Ramsey Schniderlin/Bender
    Walcott Ozil Cazorla

    Same back four and same holding midfielders
    Cazorla Fabregas Ozil
    I don’t think think Arsenal sip sign both Fabregas and Benzema but if they do then Great
