Arsenal vs Shrewsbury : Carling Cup Preview, AOC & Miyaichi Set For Debuts

If there were any perfect game for the club to use as a springboard to better performances, this is it right here. Nothing less than a 3-0 scoreline or 3 goals difference is expected. This is not a league game so hopefully the league form is not carried into the game.

Not the best of mornings for me, it rained all night and it still is meaning I’m stuck at home till it stops and then to make it worse, my favorite rapper’s(J.Cole) album leaked a week before its original date(damn! Cole World) but I trust Arsenal to make that all right against the boys from league two.

Team News
AW confirmed yesterday that there’s going to be first starts for summer signings AOC, Ryo Miyaichi and Park Chu Yung, but its not going to be a weak squad as the likes of Koscielny, Mertesacker , Chamakh, Gibbs are in it.

If anything, I’m excited to finally watch AOC play, he’s our biggest signing this summer in terms of fees and he’s been in electric form for the England U21’s bagging 6 assists in 2 games, fancy he could grab a couple again tonight.

Shrewsbury should be a walkover but don’t expect them to come to the Emirates and fold, as they are a good footballing side who move the ball well and make use of their fast & exciting wingers. Also, striker Marvin Morgan has already scored 7 league goals this season so expecting him to be looking for more.

Possible Line Up : Fabianski-Gibbs-Djourou-Miquel-Jenkinson-Coquelin-Frimpong-Benayoun-AOC-Park-Ryo-

Let us no what you think the scoreline would be. See you in the comments.

  1. Short, brief and concise….its up to the team from here onward. I expect a good game today though. My prediction would be 3-1.

  2. I expect d young gunners to prove their mettles in d competition…….i hope our season starts from here,Up gunners.

  3. This here is what we have been waiting for, the moral building match, me for 1 expects nothing less than a 5-0 clean sheet victory at least (take note of the clean sheet, because before that lucky 1-0 victory over Swansea clean sheets aint our thing).
    P.S: Who is the Alcoleholic responsible for this blog Ehn? Damn, Cole World!

  4. A brace for Park, in the right goal!

  5. A game where we can shine hopefully. Cole World

  6. good post… straight to the point. A huge win will do us a world of good. 4 nil to the Arsenal.

  7. I have fun with, cause I discovered just what I was taking a look for. You have ended my 4 day lengthy hunt! God Bless you man. Have a great day. Bye
