Well for better or worse Wenger isn't going to send a team out there to park the bus too often and I wouldn't have expected him to have done that against Milan.
I don't have a problem with his selection outside of putting Gibbs in the starting lineup after being out for almost 4 months with injury. But starting him on the bench would have meant start Djourou in the center and he had been out for almost a month with an injury also. So my guess is they felt Gibbs had a better chance of lasting 90 minutes than Djourou.
The Gunners just got thoroughly thrashed and I don't think given who was available any second guessing would have changed that much if at all, IMO anyway.
