Play Fantasy Arsene Wenger - should Theo Walcott start on Sunday?

By Avenell Dave

So Walrus Boy Allardyce with his neanderthal brand of football comes to the Emirates again on Sunday lunchtime and anything other than a win will be a wasted opportunity for Arsenal.

If we maintain the level of performance we saw against Olympiakos, Potato Head Robinson is no George Clooney and will expect a busy afternoon.

The biggest worry of course is injuries - an Allardyce side is rarely pretty or fair and we'll have to step up and play them off the park if we're going to make it a nice easy afternoon.

This is the last game before another turgid international break - why oh why can't they sort out the calendar so all these qualifiers come together and we can enjoy an uninterrupted domestic season?

Theo Walcott is back in contention and so is Nick Schumacher, I mean Bendtner, and I'd be inclined to start the Dane to threaten the Rovers defence in the air.

I suspect Abou Diaby will start again, but we can only hope he gets a rest - while I can't see Theo getting any more than a cameo and it's a shame Eduardo is out again.

Anyhow, here's the Addict XI - let us know your thoughts.
