    Mitch Love Arsenal, Hate Ramsey

    Very dominant in aerial duels for a guy of his size.

    I cringe when i see him as last man.

    The way we ran back to block Theo's chance was great, however, he doesn't install the most confidence in me - YET. I do believe there is a leader in there that will come out eventually and over time. He is a good player just needs to relax a bit.

    bingobob He played for Celtic? Sign him up!

    His dribbing has been suspect most of this season.

    He's just not a smart footballer and will keep making silly & basic mistakes in and around our box.

    A good last ditch tackle but that play just highlights how easily we're cut open, and really how unprepared we are in the phase of play after we lose the ball. 2 passes and we've gone from 30 yards from their goal to conceding a clear opportunity. This is Everton we're playing, not Barcelona. Headless chickens all over the defence.

    Surprised nobody is having a go at Mustafi in this thread...

    He's better in a 5. Maybe have Chambers sweeping behind him and Kosc.

    I'd be very nervous with him as one of only two defenders.

    Pretty sure he'd be fine in a back 4, he'd just benefit from a calm and organised CB partner.

    too aggressive, and his mind is more willing than his body.

    He can be a great player but as you said, needs time and a calm partner

    He'd be really good with lots of other really good defenders around him. Or he'd be better, at least. Better in a back 4, better still in a back 6. The more, the surer. Wait, the whole team would be better with lots of better players around everybody... Can we play with 16 men? Hang on, I'm losing myself a bit. He's sh!t. Yes, that's what I mean.

    Been quietly good this season, he's the least of our problems at the moment.
