SC Neusiedl v Arsenal, Match Day Live

As usual, it’s as live as we can get it, without actually streaming the content – you may pick up a stream or two if someone (ahem) decides to comment on it below. Today’s game is our second televised game of our Austrian tour and the final game before the weekend’s Emirates Cup. We do take on Dagenham and Redbridge tomorrow, but that’s mostly for the kids / reserves. When I say mostly… I mean entirely…

SC Neusiedl v Arsenal

So the team line up is as follows:

Almunia

Nordtveit – Djourou – Koscielny – Gibbs

Wilshere – Rosicky – Frimpong

Walcott – JET – Arshavin

    I take it we are trying not to score… Arshavin, Wilshere and Walcott all could have scored…

    Walcott makes it 1-0 after a great run from JET and good linking play from everyone!

  • devday

    Johan Djourou OFF and Thomas Vermaelen ON – Some sort of injury…

  • Pete

    2-0 JET scores

  • wills

    Lovely strike from JET

  • devday

    Arsenal score again – Jay Emmanuel-Thomas with a good finish… 2-0

  • RVP

    just tuned in as veramelen came on was djourous injury serious?

    jet just scored and i think he has a serious chance of playing many games this season. i dunno if hel make the 25 man squad for the first 5months of the prem

  • Tom G

    thanks guys on way home from work appreciating the updates..

  • devday

    If Djourou is actually injured, we’ll start with Koscielny and Vermaelen at the heart – back up? Nordtveit & Song? Need more centre backs. At least one more!

  • devday

    Frimpong is doing well – he didn’t react quick enough on the last attack, but I think he realised that.

  • devday

    JET is a monster of a player. He is absolutely huge. He needs to play this season!

  • Tom G

    hope he does well @ Emirates cup. and that Djourou isn’t serious.. we need him.

  • devday

    HT: SC Neusiedl 0 – 2 Arsenal – (Walcott 28, Emmanuel-Thomas 30)

  • Pete

    Dev, you going to the Emirates Cup mate?

  • devday

    Second Hald under way – Chamakh’s hair looks exactly the same every time I see him – exact same spikes every time…

  • devday

    Chamakh fouled – penalty given…

  • Pete

    Penalty to Arsenal, Chamakh taken down in area.

  • devday

    @ Pete:
    Not this year – my cousin is getting married over that weekend up north!

  • Pete

    Moroccan takes pen and scores. 3-0

  • devday

    3-0, Chamakh scores from the penalty spot…

  • Pete

    4-0 Vela

  • devday

    You’ve got to love the way Carlos Vela seems to finish – nice right footed lobby type thing-a-majig… .Arsenal 4-0 up…..

  • Pete

    Penalty to SC Neusiedl

  • Pete

    Manone SAVES :D

  • devday

    I turn away from my machine for 2 mins and we concede a penalty – Mannone saves though…

  • devday

    JET back on for Wilshere

  • Flamez

    no its Jet and whilshire bk on

  • Flamez

    nasri and Kos off

  • devday

    Oops… sorry guys! It’s all so confusing!

  • devday

    Frimpong impressive

  • Kodjo

    does anyone know the extent of djourou’s injury? doesnt look good….could force arsene’s hand into the transfer market…

  • devday

    @ Kodjo:
    Not sure yet – trying to find out…

  • Kodjo

    @ Dev

    Thanks mate!!!

  • Flamez

    lol yeah im struggling too, but 11 goals and 0 conceeded in 3 pre-season games is gd from any aspect, especially considering the lack of world cup players, shows the strength in depth is there with just a cb and maybe a gk too add, i say maybe coz id give thte number 1 2 mannone and 2 to shez and f**k the other 2 off

  • devday

    FT: SC Neusiedl 0 – 4 Arsenal (Walcott 28, Emmanuel-Thomas 30, Chamakh 51 (pen), Vela 65) – Good run out…

  • http://worldofarsenal Josiah

    need to know if djourou is okay, sol campbell going to newcastle is good, means wenger has to make a signing or two.

  • vj

    yeah after that possible injury scare id like 2 CBs if sol leaves wenegr will definitely sign ine, a new GK and monnone and schez as back ups as Flamez said, the other two can just leave

  • Gunnersaurus

    I hope our successful pre-season and the fact that we haven’t conceded one goal doesn’t delude Arsene into neglecting our defensive frailties. Even though Mannone has done okay for us (notably against Fulham last season), we still need an experienced and commanding GK that gives our defence confidence.
