I'm watching the game and have noticed 3 things. -We're hellbent on using the CBs, GK and our no.6 as our main source of game building as well as opening up the opposition defense. So what exactly is the point of forcing Xhaka into the team with Partey already here? -We're using the other midfielders to take up wide spots when on the ball to push our wide players(wingers and fullbacks) as further up the pitch as we can but this has our strikers completely isolated. Having Xhaka who can barely move, pass or do anything quick enough pretty much screws up the structure by merely being there and he isn't able to actually function since he hasn't got a role yet is just forcing the entire system to be blunt. You don't really need multiple players doing the same thing and what's the point of having Luiz, Gabriel, Ceballos and now Partey who are devaluing Xhaka's role in the game by default where another midfielder would be better able to connect the attack to the forward players more effectively? -I think Arteta is overdoing the pass, move, positioning and press stuff compromising a simpler route that's hurting all of our players specially our forwards as well as our attacking game overall. And not just from a gameplay perspective but having no settled front line and constantly moving around positions of Laca, Auba and the likes from one game to the next is creating more and more confusion as well as compromising team chemistry as well as confidence among the players. You can tell from their body language, decisions on the ball and lack of certainty that its a bit much. -We can't do Barcelona or Bayern or City. We can't. Its impossible. So trying to force the issue and compromising results isn't a good idea. You need to get to a certain state result wise with the players we've got before taking extreme measures first. There is nothing wrong with patience and gradual organic progression. Why not build from a foundation? We now have the set of players and enough to not overdo everything for a more direct simple way to get up the table. We should be and need to be more practical.
