Arsenal v Everton Game ThreadBy: travis | August 15th, 2009
Hello, and a happy Saturday to you all. It’s finally here, finally upon us. The 2009/10 English Premier League, and it’s another chance at trophies, new optimism to go along with the typical doom and gloom predictions Arsenal and Arsene Wenger attract on what seems like a yearly basis.
But enough of that. After a short summer offseason, it’s a return to the pitch against Everton. Starting lineups, if you haven’t seen them yet, straight from the BBC:
Everton: Howard, Hibbert, Yobo, Lescott, Baines, Osman, Neville, Cahill, Pienaar, Fellaini, Jo. Subs: Nash, Saha, Vaughan, Gosling, Rodwell, Duffy, Baxter.
Arsenal: Almunia, Sagna, Gallas, Vermaelen, Clichy, Fabregas, Song Billong, Denilson, Bendtner, van Persie, Arshavin. Subs: Mannone, Eduardo, Ramsey, Silvestre, Eboue, Gibbs, Merida.
Quick notes: no Senderos, so perhaps he will actually get sold ot Everton, no Wilshere (bollocks), and thankfull no Silvestre at the back. Not a very menacing bench aside from Eduardo.
As usual, all thoughts before, during and the after the game go below—including streams. Enjoy this one.
Come on Arsenal.
