    I already said this but he reminds me, not technically, so much of Eto'o.

    Elite fitness level and physical attributes. Poachers thru their whole careers only to move out wide later on

    and how did they switch. Goals are still there, tactically he drives defenders nuts coming from wide, and the most impressive, his/their defensive contribution. Having such experience and athlete doing both sides of the game it's just priceless

    I must admit I've always said Auba should be playing CF but the bottom line is, he's scoring from the wing! With our set up we have the potential for Pepe to mirror the same on the right. Ok, I dont think for a minute he'll be as prolific as Auba but there's no doubt he has a killer left foot. If AMN can do for Pepe what Tierney does for Auba, we will have one of the best attacks in the PL, even with Nketiah at CF. Get Martinelli fit and we'll be blowing teams away!

    I remember a few of us were getting absolutely slaughtered for saying Auba is just as good on the wing, now he seems to be just as clinical as ever, single handedly winning us an FA cup from the wing and all sorts. Wow it hurts to be so right all the time while the rest of you play catch-up.

    (Am I doing it right?)

    Yeah but he'd obviously score about 33% more goals if he played centrally because that's how it works.

    I think we would win the league if he had play up top and we had proper wide-forward from the left.

    How do I know this even if it didn't happen? Because I'm always right about everything on here.

    To really get Auba and Pepe operating as wide forwards we'll need a player even better than Lacazette at hold-up play, wide forwards just don't work without a super talented or physical player in the middle. I challenge you to find me one that has!

    Whether it's Firmino at Pool or Mandzukic at Bayern or Benzema at Real, a wide-forward needs some kind of foil to play at their very best.

    But Auba is doing it now without the CF's you mention. The way Auba scored on Sat vs Pool was down to Tierney over lapping. He could have scored that goal with a CF on the pitch. Thats why I'm saying if we can mirror that on the right, we're in business, even with Nketiah in the middle.

    I like him as a striker but tbh I'd prefer a player like Hazard or Mane on the left and Auba up front. Obviously easier said than done but you know what I mean.

    Yeah but you can’t mirror that on the right without a better CF. The system is currently lopsided to allow Auba to do what he does.

    To still get him involved with a balanced system that caters to the left and right we’d need a CF who can really make the ball stick and play those passes.

    The Giroud we had would have been quite good for our current system.

    The Lacazette we have would have been really good in the team Giroud played in.

    I think admins should automatically change "van Persie" to "snake".

    Someone should invent similar fitting nickname for Giroud.
