    Spot on. Both are pathetic on the ball, Laca has a nice flick here and there but the second he comes deeper to the midfield he looks like a donkey.

    Seems like too much to make it all work. I’d prefer 2 wide players and a striker with 4 at the back and 3 in midfield. It’s how all the best teams play and the most effective. 3 at the back is a struggle formation.

    But i liked your post because a lot of the guys on this forum get emotional when i disagree with them. Finally someone who can debate like a man.

    Can Dortmund pay the kind of money he on?

    It would be the best for everyone if he left - he is just not suited to the PL. Too slow and weak, and doesn't compensate with anything else. He looks like someone who has given up unfortunately.

    Direct swap for Sancho would suit both.

    I wrote this in an earlier post, but Dortmund are known to bring players back, so hopefully this may have legs.

    They brought Sahin, Goetze (and another one, that I can't remember)

    What's the go with him being able to play or not in Baku? I know there are political tensions but this is football ffs. If Mhki isn't allowed entry then it completely compromises the final.

    He's allowed according to UEFA, but they "can't guarantee his safety". This directly from an Arsenal spokesperson. It's pretty f*cked up. No matter what I think about how he's played and his performances, I feel for the guy that he could miss out on a final that he'd likely have a big chance to play in because of something like this. It's asinine IMO.

    Ugh, that's terrible :(

    "can't guarantee his safety" - what does that even mean? I can understand Mhki having reservations RE: safety, for sure. I have a young daughter now and I would think twice about going to a place where my mere nationality would make it unsafe for me. However, you'd think a club with the resources such as ours would be able to make something work - e.g. personal security guards

    In my view its not even about if Arsenal can afford it. UEFA should be sure they can guarantee the safety when they choose a venue. Especially when they are so vocal about being against racism.

    That's what I'm getting at - if they can't guarantee the safety of ALL of the players then the final should be moved. End of.

    Baku need to back down with all respect, we need all of our players out there who can help us in the final we should not accept this. Can we please ask Baku to ask Chelsea if they can leave Hazard at home? ridiclous if this will happen.

    I feel bad for him, but he should be left at home. His confidence is already not great, so taking him to a country where he will literally be fearful of being attacked is not going to benefit anyone.

    Maybe Thomas Wolfe was wrong and you can go home again. On the other hand, since Raiola has just been hit with a three month worldwide ban, Micki may not be going anywhere. So maybe Wolfe was right after all.

    I'd rather we completely rebelled against the EL Final, and tried to force them to forget this bollocks about playing in Baku, than playing to their wishes.

    This maffia organisation has to be stopped. It isn't about whether it is Mkhitarian or a key player like Aubameyang, it is about that we have a player who is not welcomed at a place we are supposed to play, due to political reasons.

    I agree. It’s not at all that complicated. We’ve tried to compensate for our lack of proper wingers by using an extra CB and deploying wingbacks, but a) one of those (Bellerin) got a bad injury and has no natural backup and b) instead of adding a 3rd midfielder to cover the space left by advanced wing backs we use a number 10 who cannot press, shoot or make runs beyond the strikers.

    There isn’t a single top 4 side that lacks wingers like we do. Auba is a centre forward.

    Agree I think the way forward is 4-3-3 with two pacy wingers. Midfield needs a dm like torreira and then 2 good all round mids next to him. Even David Silva gets back and helps out in defence and pools whole midfield is all about just hard work and energy
