should have smashed those fcukers.
Lacazette can take a seat tbh, he doesn't offer anything we don't already have.
People keep claiming Auba is wasted on the left on the basis that he scored when moved central...
Well I think the problem was we had 3 DM's behind them... and even in spite that he got a lot of balls and put in dangerous crosses.
Until we have Ceballos behind the trios i wont jump to conclusions.
I wanna see Matteo - Xhaka/torreia
Then youll see the space Ceballos creates and joins the attack can make Auba thrive even from the left
Lacas hold up play is way better than aubas in the center.
put Nelson as a sub instead of Mikhi who wasted a good 4-5 build ups and chances and i honestly think we wouldve won this game...
And he also left the day after... i dont get it why we subbed him.... surely the transfer didnt materialized withing a day. so we knew he'll leave... why not give Nelson a chance to shine? in the NLD, one of our own? it still pisses me off... everyone saw Mikhi was **** since the first game of the season where he started... So yes Nelson didnt have the best of times either but no one would question a decision to put him on the pitch instead of mikhi especially when the next day he leaves...
On another day the 3 points would've been in the bag mate. Arsenal dominated the game, especially the 2nd half, and they got damm lucky, just like they did against City. They've not impressed me, which is why I'm going for a 3rd place finish for Arsenal, and 4th place (at best) for them.
Even at our peak powers under Wenger or as far back as I can remember the NLD is capable of any result. Right at the end either team could have nicked it TBH, real “jumpers for goalposts” end to end stuff.
As far back as I remember, I always wanted to be a gangster.
I stopped at "Xhaka".
Shouldn't be happening if we are structured right . This team actually needs a 10 , we have two so .. hopefully we start playing them
Except losing..... we didn't lost to them for 9 years .
While I agree. Xhaka has better distribution and in general a better player than Torreria against lower opposition that sits back... he has better distribution and can make things tick.
His performance drops exponentially when its a good pressing team where he doesnt have time on the ball to establish himself...
And regardless he should never tackle cause he cant do it.
I too prefer Willock to him but lets face it, with Emerys comments he is probably one of the first names on the team sheet when fit...
I absolutely love Laca, but a true LW and RW (Pepe) flanking Auba, with Ceb or Özil behind would be best imo. Auba will score from anywhere across the front line, but it would be nice to have a team with players in their strongest positions.
Problem is with Auba spearheading it means we need a proper set of players behind and around him who can handle the creating and progressing the ball forwards, otherwise he's just isolated.
Trouble is I don't think Emery is the man for that kind of setup.
I'm guessing you knew I'd eventually see this. Bastard.
I was defending you Raz had a shocker there, while you've been getting roasted for an innocuous comment about outscoring teams.
They called him out for it on match of the day. Seems like the media might be about to end their Sp**s love-in.
When was the last time he helped break down a team that sits back? He's just there passing the ball side to side or back to the defenders.
So funny watching Kane trying to justify his obvious attempt to manufacture a penalty lol.
I know it’s been 3 days but I’m still fuming. We really should’ve won this match. 2 points dropped. Ugh.
serious question - which midfielder would you have dropped for Özil. and does anyone think that would have helped us to win?
It didn't have to be Özil in there. It just needed one of Willock, Ceballos, or Özil to link up with the attacking line, not leave Laca isolated having to drop back, and allow Laca to be more of an out and out CF. At least one of Xhaka and Torreira should not have been given the start.
I didn't understand why Emery left Willock on bench after 75 minutes when Xhaka was exhausted and very close to a yellow card. But later I read Willock has some minor injury.
Ceballos was surprisingly/quite/very bad against Liverpool, so I understand him coming from the bench. Özil could not start yet for sure, and has no match sharpness at all.
