    Well i understand that we had to switch to a back 5 when we had so many injuries including defenders and also Lucas.

    But Holding and Sokratis are back as well as Torreira. If you have those two in defense with a Torreira and Xhaka as protection it's pretty decent. In this 4-3-3 no need to drop Ceballos.

    I don't get what people love about this guy, probably the most useless/pointless player on our team.

    The whole team is pointless and it's all about finding which pieces could potentially work for next season. If Arteta doesn't like Pepe and Torreira, that's fine, but I'd like to listen for alternatives before we bin them. Right now, these alternatives aren't proving him right and the team is still diabolical in both attacking and defending.
    IMO, he is by far our best midfielder when he plays just in front of the defence, but we've seen some really bad games where he played different roles and most of the fans remember only those games.

    Wonder if Arteta rates/ would use him

    He has some obvious flaws but as a classic DM could he be of use?

    Our recent managers haven't.

    I personally suspect its due to his passing. There is definitely a place for him on our team I just question his ceiling.

    Those reports every now and then about him crying about Italy hasn't endeared me towards him as well.

    You have to question his character also, he's always diving and I swear I've seen him cry on the pitch more times than any other Arsenal player and he's been here like what 2 years?

    you definitely didn't imagine it :lol:

    Twice off the top of my head, once when Xhaka got booed off against Palace and again when he got subbed against Chelsea under Emery.

    Doesnt work in a midfield two, has too much ground to cover. Wouldn't mind AMN to come in at half time.

    He's like verrati and terms of height, everything else is fairly useless. Would be happy to get rid of this guy for £20m if possible.

    I like Torreira, I think he can work very well in the right setting as a ball-winning midfielder sitting behind two well-rounded midfielders, but at this moment with Arteta as our manager, we ain't it. He'd do wonders in Italy, should explore that market to find a partner. Napoli, for example. He's young and established enough to sell on a profit.

    I thought he made a difference last night with his relentless pressing.

    Still really like him. Sellable though.

    One of my favorite players but if we are going to play football like that, he should look for a better club than Arsenal and make a career elsewhere.
    Too bad he didn't join us in some different times

    A better club for him than Arsenal would be Genoa or SPAL.

    We could always bring back Bielik if you don't like Torreira

    Was this his first start since returning from injury?

    Don’t know what people are seeing, this clogger was a foul away from a red card yesterday.

    The PL is too fast, too tough and too high a level for this boy.
