    We basically have no one in the midfield of the field When we are attacking as both Xhaka and Ceballos drop wide into a WB position to allow Bellerin and Tierney to take up RW/ LW. Partey is basically playing in the hole in front on the 2 CB’s. That’s a big concern for me.

    we need someone in the middle who will draw out one of Leicester’s midfielders or defenders thus creating space to be attacked.

    Mind you they are just sitting back playing on the counter. Hopefully we get 3 goals in the second half.

    I have to say - Leicester City sitting deep notwithstanding - the attacking process has been very good so far and that is huge promise. For tonight in particular, the players I expected to struggle (i.e. Laca who's been quite poor last couple of games, despite his chance at the start of the game) are struggling. Ceballos hasn't been as secure as I've liked in terms of keeping possession either. The midfield is a little flat aswell and we're not getting enough bodies following up our initial promising attacks.

    I hope Nketiah replaces Laca - he's raw as all hell right now but I just feel that extra bit of pace and endeavour will be helpful.

    Nah. They're playing defensive trying to forestall us, is what I saw. They made no attempts, probably because Vardy is in in the stands.

    I don’t think the official called a goal. The linesman was the one that flagged for offside. VAR could’ve only saved the goal. I’m not sure why you guys are blaming it.

    If our goal stands Leicester will have come out and we’d be 2-0 or 3-0 up. These ******* refs are so ****.

    VAR did not cancel the goal. The linesman did.

    brendan wants to make it a game of one half in which he can play vardy and neutralize the rest of the time...he got exactly what he set out to do. Gave arsenal all the ball and all the midfield and got through the first half unscathed.

    You can see the next development phase. Replace Xhaka and Ceballos with creative two way players.

    Ceballos has been poor.
    Laca as bad as always.
    Bellerin has nobody to work with.

    Saks needs to move infield, pepe on for Ceballos. Doubt he will change it though.

    The songs and some other emails remind you you're listening to a bunch of 50/60 year olds. Definitely old man humour, who finds anagrams that funny?

    The incompetent frauds in VAR normally take 7 minutes with a decision, decided to rule that goal offside in two seconds, ****ing rotten ****s.

    Saka reminds me of a young Raheem Sterling at times. Absolute tragedy in front of goal if it's not harder to miss than score, but at the same time he's very good at getting into goal scoring positions. Lot of ability in him for sure but it's pretty obvious why Arteta doesn't trust him to be a reliable goal scorer yet.

    Lacazette is just a burning trashfire at this point. I got memed into ****ing oblivion years ago on here for suggesting Lacazette wasn't an upgrade on Giroud but rather a sidegrade who offered something a bit different. Feel pretty vindicated at this point tbh.

    Partey looks a tidy player, but that's to be expected from a 27-year-old guy with his experience.

    Good half but please finish off the game before vardy comes on.

    Those 3 crosses were wasted. Think Martinelli would have scored 2 of them atleast. But our 100m strikers missing them. :facepalm:

    Especially 3rd one was a tap in. Laca :frustrated:

    What? They go to VAR for every offside call.
