    I guess its always difficult if the opposition is well organised. Take the FA Cup semi final where City couldn't break us down. Hopefully Willian will help, also Saka we've seen has an eye for a killer pass. I dont mind the odd draw against teams like Burnley, what I dont want to see again is us losing games to teams like Burnley!

    Yup if you saw the look on Klopps face at the end of the game. He was fuming. They finally won a PL title after 30 years , will be very hard for them to reach peak intensity for a few months.

    Not sure what you mean, yes they dominated possession, esp when the onus was on them, we were the more profligate shading them on the best chances because our youth are needing to get their eye in, we should have out scored them in the 90 and in better style, their goal was chaotic with a touch of fortune, the last few minutes they were on the ropes. It did not feel like a grind to me, any hoo even if it was a grind, half the matches pool played last season they had to grind, pool can and do play ugly too!

    They had twice the number of our shots too, and the action zone was mostly on our half.

    To break down weaker teams you need variety. Need to get more goals from dead-balls, they're always going to give away free-kicks and corners defending deep. Above all, press high-up and force mistakes. However disciplined a team you cannot legislate for individual errors, they will happen in every game.

    Don't be afraid to shoot from distance but make sure there are players going in for spills. Crowd the penalty area, deflections can be lethal and the more of a melee the likelier you will get a penalty through a trip or a handball.

    To go back : VARIETY!!!! Don't simply play the ball around the outside of the penalty area waiting for a chance. That was the worst part of Wengerball. Make it happen!

    Coming from a gooner as well... He’s right though, because the normal response from them on any other occasion would obviously be to fill balloons with their piss and sh1t and hurl them at our players. They probably didn’t stop off on the way home and stomp some rough sleepers to death in frustration either. So classy ffs.
