    I think we’re going for a more conservative approach, given the turnaround time for Freddie. The defence looks like something Per drew up, and Willock worked well for Freddie. We can’t just draw up a new plan in a week and expect the players to execute properly. Baby steps, but hopefully players playing with fire in their belly, that’s the most important ingredient today.

    Individually they're terrifying, together it beggars belief.

    Tierney better operating at 50% than Kolasinac at 100% offensively and defensively

    Yeah. Sokratis has been awful this season, and at least Mustafi is good with the ball.

    Has a honeymoon period ever ended before a ball has ever been kicked ever before, ever?

    Really thought Freddie would pick Joe in the middle, instead of both Gonzo and Xhaka...hate using a diamond in England too, especially one with four pure CMs who aren’t comfortable at all out wide...thought at least one of Pepe/Gabby/Nelson/Saka would start, yet we get none...possibly the worst line up on paper I have seen this year, way to kill the enthusiasm out Freddie :lol:

    Still love you though!

    He’s going to yell at the officials the entire time, get thrown out, and delegate responsibilities to Mertesacker.

    Awful line up. Jesus. was buzzing for today as well. 442 diamond does not work.

    Pukki hasn’t scored awhile so Charity FC will surely gift him one. I think we’ll need to score three to win. Our front three can do it but can we get them the ball often enough, not so sure. Mustafi back makes me uncomfortable.

    Before you all judge let's see how the team will preform and if we going to be more solid

    Which makes it all the more baffling as to why emery started him against Frankfurt

    The team does not look great but as we seem to be playing four at the back, that should be positive. We have tried with wingers earlier, hopefully this 442 will create a dominance in midfield.

    Pepe is a mystery :(

    Chambers, Mustafi, Luiz, Kolasinac...what a terrible back four. With Holding and Bellerin out, I suppose there's not much choice. We really need new defenders.

    I think it's clear that we won't see our strongest front 4 in many games don't think managers would like to put auba out wide

    Pepe can still be a big asset of the bench.

    He was pretty dire starting for Ivory Coast last break not getting going against worst teams than Norwich. Not just bad here.

    I have no problem with Mustafi starting, no one else has covered themselves in glory in that position this season so there's no good options.

    Very dissapointed to see Pepe not start though. He just needs confidence in my eyes - the new manager starting him straight away would have helped with that. Also still not sure what Xhaka adds when Guendouzi is playing. I'd just leave him out and sell him in January.
