Over the past few years, Arsenal Fc have been heavily criticised for its sale of its key players, season after season. From Patrick Veira in 2005 to Alex Song in 2012. Most of these players have gone on to establish themselves in their new clubs and have as well won silverwares (Arsenal’s last being the FA cup penalty victory against the Red Devils in 2005)

Well, we have gathered a team of ex gunners who are still featuring for their clubs and in this post, we are trying to measure their width and find out if the current Arsenal’s first team can overcome them in a football match.

The Line Up For Ex Gunners Will Be;

Almunia… GK (Watford)

Ashley Cole…. LB ( Chelsea Fc)

Kolo Toure…… CB ( Manchester City)

Williams Gallas….CB (Tottenham Hotspur)

Emmanuel Eboue…. RB (Galatasary)

Lass Diarra….. DMF (Real Madrid)

Alex Song…… CMF (Barcaleona)

Francesc Fabregas…. CMF (Barcaleona)

Samir Nasri… AMF (Manchester city)

Van Persie… FWD (Manchester United)

Emmanuel Adebayor.. FWD (Tottenham Hotspur)

in a 4-1-2-1-2 formation with Emmanuel Adebayor and Robin Van Persie leading the attack

with Gael Clichy ( Manchester City)

       Eduardo Da Silva (Shaktar Donestk)

       Matheiu Flamini ( AC Milan)

       Matthew Upson ( Tottenham Hotspur)

       Theiry Henry ( NY Redbulls)

all making the bench


The current Arsenal Squad will be as it is

Wojcieh Szczensy….. GK

Keiran Gibbs….. LB

Vermaelen thomas  . CB

Laurent Koscielny… CB

Bacary Sagna…. RB

Abou Diaby….. DMF

Mikel Arteta…. AMF

Santi Carzola….. AMF

Lukas Podolski…. FWD

Oliver Giroud….. FWD

Oxlade Chamberlain…. FWD

in a 4-3-3 formation, with Oliver Giroud leading the attack

with Andreas Santos


       Andrey Arsharvin

       Mertasacker Per

       Thomas Rosiscky

       Aaron Ramsey

        Lukas Fabianski

in the bench…….


I will say a scoreline of 3 – 1 in favor of the ex gunners, they have a ruthless midfield and a deadly attack unlike the present team…

Maybe the current team have an edge with their centre backs but with Ashley Cole and William Gallas, the ex also do possess depth in their back four…
