    Have a feeling Theo will be going straight back to the bench :mad:

    Having a tough time figuring out what line up we'll see. I think there could be a few things up in the air based on certain player's current form.

    I'd love a front three of Alexis, Giroud, Theo. But can't see Wenger dropping Ramsey, and he doesn't seem to want to play Ramsey next to Coq in the middle.

    I have a sneaky but probably wrong suspicion that Giroud may start on the bench and Theo start at CF. Yes, its only one game he's played there, but Giroud isn't in good form at the moment and Theo seems like he's now actually back to himself. Like I said, probably wrong though.

    Wenger is going to pick his fav players and those who he feel that deserve to win the FA Cup. His pick won't be based on form. The only thing Wenger can't do and justify is picking Debuchy and Gibbs in his team even if he really want's too.

    Bellerin - Mertesacker - Koscielny - Monreal
    Coquelin - Cazorla
    Ramsey - Özil - Sanchez

    This is the team that have been playing most lately and even if this team have not show any promises attacking wise bar few odd games this is the team Wenger want's to see win the cup.

    Going to be very hard game.

    ^ You're probably right.

    We all know what team is going to play. No surprises.

    At least the bench strength is there, can't see Villa holding out with the power packed squad we have.

    Villa lost to Burnley didn't they? They are in a bad spell right now, we need to jump on them early and crush their spirit.

    A big plus for us is the fact that Ron Vlaar will play. Vlaar has been comical in recent weeks and I'd say he's Villa's weakest link atm. I'm desperate for Theo to start this game, Emirates is a big pitch but Wembley is even bigger, genuine width would help us immensely.

    Villa aren't short of pace either, they have Benteke, Agbonlahor, N'Zogbia and Sinclair who are all quick. Hope we see our best players in their best positions.

    This is not what Wenger will do, but I'd go with a Wenger-ish line-up of:
    Bel BFG KOS Nacho
    Le Coq Ramsey (Cazorla)
    Walcott Özil Alexis

    2 most difficult players to leave out are Cazorla and JW. Tempting to leave Giroud out and play Theo up top with JW on the wing. Then the only problem is Ramsey or Cazorla? Tough call...they both bring so much, but I think Ramsey has some goals coming as he's been so close and he's fearless. Got to like that in a player.

    The team that should start:

    Bellerin Mertesacker Koscielny Monreal
    Ramsey Coquelin
    Walcott Özil Alexis
    The team that will start:

    Bellerin Mertsacker Koscielny Monreal
    Cazorla Coquelin
    Ramsey Özil Alexis

    So it begins...

    I have every confidence. :rolleyes:

    Actually i do, because I just don't see Villa as the kind of team that can play an effective counter attacking game for 90 in the style of Swansea, or park the bus for 90 in the style of Sunderland.

    Really, it's on us to set the pace and the tone. If we do that, we win. :)

    I have My 71 replica shirt ready and ironed to go, as does my son.

    Let's go...

    Think Woj's times up and expect Wenger to be ruthless. Would expect Woj to have started vs WBA if he was in for the final. Not sure if Wenger will be brave with the attacking 6. Either way I feel Theo and Santi could offer more coming off the bench compared to the full 90.
