I was sat at home last night wallowing in self pity over the looming prospect of losing our captain and best player for what feels like the millionth season running. Well maybe it isn’t exactly like that but it is certainly how it feels sometimes!
I decided that the best thing to do would be to play a little game with myself, no nothing like that ;). I decided to try and field the best XI I could dream up based on players that Arsenal have either sold or released in recent years.
The only rules I obeyed were that it had to be a 4-3-3 as that is what we are currently playing and all players have to currently have footballer as their job description.
Below is my attempt, I would be interested to see what others amongst you come up with
Not too shabby really, whilst it might not be a team that would win you the Champions League it would have a good go at competing!
