Remember this?

It was only three days ago, and yet today's Champions League game will have a very different tone. Arsenal's midfield is currently in tatters. Walcott, Nasri, and Rosicky are out. Cesc and Denilson are questionable. Also, Sagna may not play today.

If all of the questionable folks don't play, I think the starting lineup will be:

Arshavin - RVP - Bendtner

Song - Diaby - Ramsey

Clichy - Gallas - Vermaelen - Eboue

That midfield looks pretty rough. I'd prefer to start Eduardo up top and push Arshavin back to midfield for Ramsey, but I don't think the boss will do it.

Today we need the goalscorers up front to show up. Alex Song also needs to have a big day and put the midfield on his shoulders.

Come on you gunners.
