    It's listed as FSC for the US, you're right.

    Hopefully we go in to this with the same mindset as we did against Bradford. Intentionally lose these meaningless tournament games so we can finally go all in to the Cl and Prem!

    With this version of the Arsenal, it's always a crap shoot.

    Lukasz Fabianski & Vito Mannone:
    “We have Fabianski injured and Mannone sick, but apart from that, everyone is alright. At this stage of the season, we have the whole squad available.​
    Abou Diaby & Andre Santos:
    “We have Diaby coming back into full training, Santos coming back into full training. They are not completely match fit, but they are back. Overall the situation is very satisfying.”​
    Emmanuel Frimpong:
    “Frimpong is back with us. He is unfortunately sick today.”​
    Will the squad be rotated after a busy Christmas period?
    “We play at Swansea; it’s a difficult tie, but of course we want to come out on top. The FA Cup is something special because it is exciting, it is watched all over the world.
    “I just play the team that I think has the best chance of winning the game, without considering any rotational desire, unless I think one or two players need a breather.”​

    Read as- Diaby has a contract until 2015 and we have to pretend there's any likelihood he'll be fit to play regularly one day.

    That quote literally made me sick to my stomach. We all hope that Diaby pulls an RVP (minus the Man U transfer) and overcomes his injuries to become the world class player we know he can be, but Diaby's situation just seems far worse. And Santos.... just... don't Arsene.

    Me too. Really, how upset will we be if we field a some fringe players? We have a lot of guys who could use a day off.

    I've been getting my ass handed to me in FIFA Ultimate Team, so now I don't give a damn about this game. :mad: I hate how much a video game can sway my mood.

    Ramsey decided to take another touch instead of shooting from 8 yards out. :mad:
