This is well said. It made me think of something for yesterday's game. It almost seems like Wenger picks his teamsheet of players first then jams them into a formation. I still just don't understand why he would play Özil on the wing today unless Walcott really isn't match fit. I think its clear we do best, especially when starting Giroud at CF, when we have two players on the wings who are comfortable playing wide (Alexis, Ox, Walcott, Welbeck). This playmaker on the wing usually just hurts us more than it helps. Also like others said in match thread, Wenger doesn't want to drop Ramsey even though clearly Rosicky is in better form and offers more at the moment especially in the NLD. I think its another example of Wenger placing his player-centric philosophy first and tactics second. I think he got the right idea for tactics today. Playing like we did away at City was correct. He just didn't select the best XI to implement those tactics optimally because he picked the players first then jammed them into a formation. Also a few individual factors had a big impact as well. I think Ospina was shaken up physically after his semi-injury and he was a little slow as a result. Kos had a poor mental game. His timing was just off today. He seemed to just be a step behind the game mentally the whole time. Ospina a step physically behind and Kos a step mentally behind is a particularly bad combo for us.
