This summer has been a season of ups and downs for Gunner fans.
The ups? Arsenal's solid additions in German striker Lukas Podolski and French forward Olivier Giroud.
The downs? Watching Arsenal's Wojciech Szczesny lose the starting goalkeeping job for Poland during the Euro 2012, monitoring the recovery of their team's injury-riddled defense and biting their nails as they watch Arsenal star Robin Van Persie teeter on the edge of transferring over to Manchester United.
While injuries, acquisitions and potential farewells are an inevitable part of soccer, these incidents prompt roster changes, and roster changes prompt a frenzy of fans buzzing around Premier League forums.
As the Premier League draws near and player moves come to a halt, starting lineup formations can really start to be foreseen.
In this slideshow is a starting lineup for Arsenal that all Gunner fans can agree on.
