I really can’t get my head around this one. We need a world class right back so much more. Seems like Arteta only sees midfielders as DM or CAM with nothing in between.

Aren't Partey & Sambi kind of DMF & CMF mold? I think Partey even said he wanted to play further up than he got to in Atletico, meaning CMF or more licence to go up.

Like daron christie above said, we need to get rid of at least one RB to buy one.

You’re right but I wasn’t necessarily talking about what the players are, more how Arteta sees roles. Example: he played Ceballos at the base of midfield whereas in Spain he’s nearly always used as an 8. He’s fixated on using the same players over and again so they master where they should be on the pitch in different situations. It will win him some but cost him others.

Where does Madison fit in the current formation? He is a solid player who would give us goals, but who do you sit?

I think a starting CM partner for Partey would be a higher priority. We need a backup for ESR.
