It's that time of year folks when the legendary Arsenal league cup team take the floor although this year may be slightly different as we have *gasp* squad depth this season, squad depth so depthy that our record signing is poised to Start (Arshavin).

The impressive start to the season has us all in a good mood so all tickets have been sold to this one, which is another slap in the face of the journos who want to make an issue of us "only getting 45k" vs Shrewsbury.

I'm excited to see who is selected from the ressies and U-21s, talent like Hector Bellerin, Martin Angha, Kris Olsson and the two who are expected to make waves around the first team before too long.....Serge Gnabry and Thomas Eisfeld.

If you remember, Eisfeld had the unfortunate luck to be signed in the January transfer window last season, a transfer window where 99.9% of Arsenal fans were desperate to see the squad padded out as we chased down 4th place so when the deal was announced, the poor kid ended up trending on Twitter.

Eisfeld caught my eye in the pre-season, we've heard before that he's a talented kid with a slight injury proneness but the Asia tour showed many people that he possesses a Ljungberg like quality of arriving in the right place at the right time.

My team tonight
