First poll – Will Celtic crush Arsenal’s CL hopes in the qualifiers?
No, Arsenal’s superior quality will shine through in the end. 83%
Yes, they have nothing to lose and play better against English opposition. 17%
I think the results of this poll is expected and that most Gooners are confident of doing well against Celtic. They are already without their most influential player last season in Shunsuke Nakamura and surely we have too much in our tank to get into the main Champions League draw.
Second poll – Who would be your choice to fill the starting midfield alongside Cesc and Song?
Abou Diaby 25%
Aaron Ramsey 25%
Samir Nasri 25%
I must say I am quite surprised that no one voted for Jack Wilshere given the hype that was heaped on him in pre-season. This is pleasing to know as it means Gooners also agree that we shouldn’t burden him and thus stop his development. Denilson has got to be the natural choice for now as he played the most last season and has a really strong engine. Ramsey has certainly played his way into contention in pre-season and Nasri and Diaby are both highly regarded by Wenger.
