Bolton Wanderers vs Arsenal: Team line-ups, half-time thoughts and match chat
Written by Chris on April 24, 2011 16:00
With Manchester United and Chelsea both winning their Saturday games, it is vital for us to do the same if we are to keep our title dreams alive.
We usually struggle at the Reebok but after their heavy defeat against Stoke City in the F.A. Cup, let’s hope the Wanderers will not be as sharp and determined as they usually are although they might as well want to get back on winning terms to get closer to their fans, very upset after the 0-5 humiliation.
With Abou Diaby and Nicklas Bendtner ruled out of the game, we should more or less start with the same starting eleven that featured against Tottenham Hotspur in mid-week with Robin van Persie our only striker up front supported by Theo Walcott and Samir Nasri on the wings.
Come on lads, show us the fighting spirit needed to keep on fighting until the end, show us you care and show us that you will indeed not give up until the very last second of this season’s campaign!
And, until you wait for kick-off, check out what Arsene Wenger had to say on his side losing leads and hence dropping points this season and also Emmanuel Eboue’s point of view on the last-minute conceded penalty against Liverpool last week.
As always, please do join the discussion in our chat room which will also be active after the full time whistle. You will be glad to know that from this season, to provide a better chat experience to our readers, users can be banned if they post offensive comments.
