A theoretical framework is derived for the description of the localised structures which have recently been observed in a system of two coupled broad-area VCSEL in a long cavity self imaging configuration. The model succeeds in reproducing, at least qualitatively, the experimental observations: the numerous types of monochromatic cavity solitons, the left or right handed vortices as well as their striking spectral characteristics.
