Do you remember how we played 07-12?
We were the English Barcelona and like to pass the ball around having possession. That's wengerball.
I reckon Arteta may have an experience/seniority bias.Have to play AMN, Elneny, Nelson, Nketiah, Willock, Saka more. These are uncomplicated players who have technical ability. The system has to be designed according to the personnel. First you gather your best players, then you devise a way to play them together. Thats what management is.
Is that a good or bad thing?This is quite literally something Wenger would try.
He'd be coming inside though. Interchanging with saka and willian/martinelli. The width and pace would be coming from the full backs as they are now. And Auba and possibly martinelli using their pace in behind.Dani outwide...are you crazy?
He's about as fast as Xhaka
Though you are on to something here, hope Arteta mixes it up for United next weekend.
I would't be against it. Ramsey played out there and did well, though this board was in full Ramsey hate mode at the time and pretended it was a disaster.He'd be coming inside though. Interchanging with saka and willian/martinelli. The width and pace would be coming from the full backs as they are now. And Auba and possibly martinelli using their pace in behind.
it takes man-management ability and acumen, not to mention hard work, to be able to guide, select and manage youngsters. Its far easier to bung in all the senior pros one can find into a rigid straitjacketed system and escape with a 1:0 defeat that looks respectable.I reckon Arteta may have an experience/seniority bias.
Would explain his insistence on Laca and why Saliba and so many youngers are missing.
Is that a good or bad thing?
I was thinking the same though, reminds me of cazorla when he would play there.
Think if we can maintain artetas defensive structure and work rate, with a good spine with guys like gabriel and partey, which wenger didn't have in his later years, with a more wenger esque attack we'd have a pretty good balance.
That and that!Play the superstars in their right positions. Fill the 5 attacking channels with attackers not full backs.
Auba, Pepe, Partey, Gabriel, Tierney, Saka and one of Willian/Esr/Nelson should be the the first names on the team sheet. Invert one full back and allow Pepe to move infield to get closer to Auba. If you are scared of the counter play the fullback who can pocket Zaha and have him sprinting back and inverting seeing as he is comfortable doing it.
Stop rewarding our limited players because they ****ing train hard.
