    Not even sure it was Saka parents. Well. It was his mother for sure but I think the other one might be god him self.

    I’m really liking the 3-4-3. While our squad is near fully fit it’s probably our best suitable formation. Provides stability. Allows the wingbacks or a midfielder to bomb forward without sacrificing defensive structure.
    Arteta has got it spot on.

    Unless you'd ever seen him at u18 or u23 level where he was just so far ahead of most of the kids his age it was clear he was a talent. Stood out almost as much as Wilshere did.

    Santi can probably do more with a tennis ball than anyone in the squad can do with a football...

    They had the quality vs a Norwich side that gave us two goals.

    Let's not forget how many times Ceballos and Xhaka got the ball to the forwards in previous games.

    Özil can probably rival him on his left foot but unlike Santi he has no heart or gumption.

    Nice touch, but will it make a noticeable difference? Assistant coaches are overrated imo.

    Team looked really different yesterday. With the wing backs bombing down the flanks and putting the ball in & more through balls we just had a lot more avenues to goal and the attack looked more diverse and threatening. Whilst lucky with the opener (as per Southampton, it's the sort of luck you make for yourself and which we'd never have made under Emery) we really should have scored by that point anyway. Lacazette continues his profligacy.

    Haha dude, we literally just hired an assistant coach to be our head coach. Now's probably not a good time to be saying assistant coaches are overrated.

    I dont know how much of our dominance last game is due to Norwich being really poor but I will like to see us continue this system. It looks like it covers up our frailties and gives us more attacking options.

    Yep, three at the back has best suited our players since Wenger switched to it in 16/17. Every decent run we've gone on since then has been when we played 3 at the back.

    It best masks the massive flaws in our squad: the lack of competent centre halves that can play 1v1, the lack of dynamic midfield players and the lack of elite 1v1 wide men. I think it's here to stay until we get new players.

    I do think Arteta's plan is 433 eventually, so imo the likes of KT, Saliba and Pepe will be crucial moving forward.

    Arsenal clearly have a problem. Almost half of the goals they’ve conceded this season have been from corners, set-pieces, penalties etc - only 56% from open-play.

    No wonder that we are dreading during every corner or set-piece closer to our goal.

    Yesterday it looked like we had a clear plan. Build up the right hand side and then switch to the left.

    We were genuinely exciting.
