    But he was chasing a game that had got away from him because of two individual mistakes. It was take a risk time.

    He'll be more cautious away at Southampton.

    So the high ×G stat counted when you thought it was 3 at the back, but now that you know it was 4 you discard it as "he was taking a risk"?

    Tisk tisk :rolleyes:

    Dont think it matters what formation we play. If we play half as well going forward as we did against united we will win this 5 or 6

    :lol: Think the high xG was more to do with our golden triangle backed up by Ramsey on a purple.

    Got stung by a breakaway for a third because we didn't have three at the back :p

    Read it and weep :p
    Arsenal’s golden triangle

    Arsenal’s front three of Alexandre Lacazette, Mesut Özil and Alexis Sanchez have not started together very often for various reasons.

    But surely this is the template for Arsenal if they are to have a good season. Lacazette’s movement and link-up play has improved, Sanchez has passion and energy while even Özil tracked back and worked.

    Lacazette-Özil-Sanchez, il Daily Mirror: "Arsenal's golden triangle"

    Must win game. Spuds won today, Chelsea lost, time to close the gap on them without Spuds closing on us. If City vs Utd draw or City win, that adds to the importance of us winning this game. Would like to see us demolish them in the first half.

    Lads I bumped into Wenger in Waitrose in Whetstone, North London this afternoon. He was sniffing the melons trying to select the best one. He said he hasn't decided the team for tomorrow but is either going to go 5 at the back replacing Mustafi with Holding, Chambers or Per or he is also thinking of going 4-3-3 with Bellerin, Kos, Kolasinac definites with Lacazette up front, Alexis on the left, and Xhaka in the middle but he hasn't decided what he wants to do with Ramsey, Özil and whether he brings in another central midfielder like Coquelin, Elneny, Wilshere, bring in a RW or put Ramsey on the right with Özil central.

    Basically he said he hasn't decided yet but there are many different options. We then had a discussion about the ripeness of the melons and how he feels the quality of the strawberries were good despite them not being in-season at the moment. We discussed they were imported from Spain and he pondered how Brexit would affect the price of imported fruits.

    Steve Bould then called to say they were ready to depart London Colney and asked where he was and Wenger said he was 5 minutes away but he was literally still picking fruit in Waitrose.

    Must win game. Our first team had a week off no reason not to win this.

    Be interesting to see who replaces Mustafa: Have a feeling it will be Holding but could be Mertesacker or even Chambers or Debuchy. Or Wenger could decide to go with four at the back.

    Same boat. Got a last minute double pay call, couldn't say no with Xmas coming up. **** thing is I start my shift an hour before the game.

    Allowed to watch the match/movies during down time but I don't trust myself not overreact.

    Probably best to stick with the back three if Mustsfi’s out. Koscienly and Monreal is hardly a partnership that would feel me with confidence.

    Its either gonna be back 3 or Coquelin next to Xhaka in a 4 man defense. My bet is on back 3 of course

    Sapient Hawk The Reason We're Out of Europe

    We did pretty well in a more important early kickoff less than a month ago.

    Also, the fact it's neither Pochettino or Koeman at the helm gives me less cause for concern.

    Despite being a centre back all his career, Pellegrino doesn't set his team out to stifle teams, which should allow us to dictate the pace provided we actually go in with a game plan effective enough to neutralize them.

    I see no difficulty in replacing a player who does not exist in our squad ;).
