    I Don't care what people think, Özil walks into this team.

    You can **** on his work-rate, fine. You can **** on his commitment, fine.

    But you can not **** on the fact the guy is possible the best playmaker this decade, he outstats Xavi, Iniesta, Kroos, **** me.

    JUST PLAY HIM, he's still an employee of the club, so use him.

    I'm really pissed off. We have shocking, shocking footballers and all our strikers are wank, unless Auba is being fed properly.

    Pepe: what can you say.

    good at doing little tricks 2m away from an opponent any closer he losses Possession.

    don’t really offer nothing more then Gervinho did. Can see why Raul was given the chop

    2 passes and our „sorted“ defence gets undone.

    In what world does Xhaka, Elneny, Ceballos get a look in over Özil, it's ridiculous.

    Arteta is the problem, not Özil.

    You're going to get down days during a process like this. Just gotta try and be positive and go again. If we lose against United its going to be carnage. In an awful position if that happens.

    Negative results against United, Villa and Leeds will make me ask questions.

    nopes... we had the performance because brendan gave us the ball ... and managing vardy's minutes was his plan from the first minute. It was a predictable move. It wasnt a bailout..it was the whole frikkin plan.

    I'm not going to start knocking Arteta but what makes it worse is precisely that - it wasn't a master class from Rodgers.

    It was in Arteta's power to have played a fresher team by rotating the squad and playing a more creative midfield. So he has to accept some of the blame for the loss.

    Agree completely. Arteta is the most defensive coach we've ever had. We are set up to just not lose and it's boring, boring, boring!!

    Give Pochettino whatever he wants and let's get some pride and entertainment back!!

    Leicester did to us what we’ve been doing to the big teams. Defend deep, compact between the spaces and be clinical on the counter. It happens.

    Absolutely. The profile of the team is shifting but these guys are holding the team back from that transformation. Gabriel and Partey have been two very good additions, bringing security in both technical and physical areas. The players letting us down do not bring either. Laca brings neither. Xhaka can pass forward but can't turn quick with the ball and Ceballos - who I like - takes too many touches to do anything most of the time. Not bad players individually but together they're flat.

    They absolutely need to try something different.
    Preaching to the choir, my friend. Nobody was more disappointed than me not to see ESR and Nelson play. That lineup was so first team heavy and we suffered IMO because of it.
    I've got an eye on Thursday, we will see if they finally get some minutes then.

    Give it a f*cking rest dude. He's not registered, he's not playing. It's over. Stop trolling and discuss actual plausible options for the team to improve. This lionization of a player who routinely disappeared in matches like this one is nauseating and stupid.

    We dont even play through the middle anymore, we need to mix it up.

    Leeds? :rofl:

    Bielsa is going to school Arteta, he done the same to Pep and they were unlucky not to get the 3 points. Leeds will surprise us with their quality.

    I'm actually not that bothered whether Auba plays through the middle or from the wing. As long as he is constantly in and around the penalty area. If he was told not to track back as much (like Salah for example) then he would be just as deadly from the wing. The problem is under this system we never really fully control games so he ends up too far away from the goal. He hardly gets a sight of the goal. Such a waste of his speciality.

    I liked the set up behind the ball. Xhaka, Partey and Ceballos with Gabriel and Luiz behind. Good distribution and capable of handling the transition/counter. Went out of the window when Mustafi came on sadly.

    Tbt I'm fine with that, a lot of teams sort of neglect it now as the midfield tends to get packed out.

    Case in point Liverpool as I think the Gomez/Van Dijk switches to Trent are actually a thing now.
