    Here's a trick or two mate . . just a shame he doesn't do it more often. ;)

    Walcott should be running behind the defence more often. That is his trick.

    Özil and Sanchez needs to attempt more through balls.

    It is a good stat, but we are still lacking in creating chances lately.

    It may very well be because we have faced some very strong defensive teams in Boro, Sp**s and United(under Mourinho) so it might go upwards again now.

    That is not a strawman. Wtf?

    Just name the names mate! It can't be that hard?

    I said there's loads of players at mid table teams who are technically better than Theo.

    Now you're asking me to pick players at mid-table teams that I would pick over Theo?

    That's a strawman.

    You said "there's loads of players at mid-table sides that are better than the likes of Coq, Ramsey and Theo."

    I asked you to name a few of them because I was interested in knowing what players you where thinking about.

    You even quoted this^ post so stop pretending that you don't know what I mean. You also went to the effort of typing out what I said because you know I corrected my original post and so couldn't quote it.

    So now the question is why are you arguing for the sake of arguing?
     
  11. hydrofluoric acid

    hydrofluoric acid Dishonest To His Federation

    I didn't even know you changed. And even if then mate, the question still stand. I'm still interested in knowing what players you think are better than them at mid table clubs(now add technically to it)? Are there any names you can name?

    Another question? Why are you in such a defence? I was just trying to have a conversation. I too think Coquelin, Ramsey and Walcott are lacking technically.

    You know I was just joking with the angry smiles? Didn't mean to scare you mate. I was just making joke when people wanted Wenger to sign players in the summer where he didn't but no one could come up with names of players that were available.

    Alright mate, just for you.

    Everton: I'm sure you can pick one for yourself
    Bournemouth: Wilson
    Southampton: Tadic/Redmond
    Watford: Pereyra
    Stoke: Any of their front 3
    Westham: you can pick one here too
    Leicester: Mahrez
    Crystal Palace: Zaha/Cabaye/Townsend
    Swansea: Siggurdson
    etc etc

    Ramsey is a special case because his technique is inconsistent but I'd argue that most of the players I've named match or better him technically. You can debate that if you want lad.

    What you can't debate (although you will) is that all of those players are better than Theo technically. It's not hard, he can barely dribble.:lol:

    I was never going to debate anything. I just wanted to know the names, I really did! :p I'm not a fan of the fraud Coquelin. And I don't think Walcott and Ramsey have good technique either.

    What player would you sign of those bunch you named if we had no other opinion?

    Payet, Wilson, Mahrez, Shaqiri, Lanzini and probably a few others I've forgotten.

    I don't know if it shows the weakness of our squad or the strength of their premier league but these guys could actually play in our first XI. Payet would be unreal on our left wing.

    I would take Payet.

    Always thought Bojan is intelligent enough to play for us but not sure he would the star quality we really need to compliment Özil and Sanchez in the attack!

    Stars are nice but I think we need more footballers first and foremost. Players with the technical ability to actually play in our first team and help us cut through defences. It's why Iwobi's been so important for us despite not really producing.

    We know what Wenger was capable of with a technically able team that wasn't as good as the one we currently have. I don't mind carrying Theo (when on form) but our form immediately falls off a cliff when we start carrying multiple technically inept players.

    I think putting coquelin and elneny together can only happen if we try to defend a lead. Also if Wenger must play Özil and Ramsey together, should make Özil on the left And Ramsey as AM, this way, as least both can make some contribution. Putting a player in a position that he is not familiar with is just a absurd....

    I'm a winning person and I think not winning the league in over a decade especially when we've had the best team in the league for at least 3 of those years is frustrating.

    I like Wenger a lot because of his pragmatism, intelligence and general outlook on football but there has to come a time when we recognise he makes the same costly mistakes season after season. He's a top manager and a legend of our club but the game passes almost everyone by.

    Try not to be so arrogant in your justification pal - trying to make me and anybody who wants a change after this season out to be some kind of blathering, screamy buffoon is wrong. Although I agree there are some in our fan base.
