    He's totally unnecessary in games like today. Also forces one of Cazorla/Ramsey out wide.

    Özil or Ramsey, honestly I'd like Özil dropped for a while but it won't happen.

    Ramsey was our best midfielder today, it baffles me that fans underrate him still after all these years

    North5 Here since 2009. Unlike Cornavirus.

    We all know all 3 will be starting at least one of the next 2 games.

    Ramsey - Cazorla
    ------- Özil -------
    Pace - CF - Pace

    Can bring in Coquelin against the big teams.

    Disaster waiting to happen with how ramseys positioning has been.

    Don't think it's him being underrated nas, it's more people pointing out his lack of tactical and positional nous imo

    What does Coquelin offer that he doesn't?

    Lad can't pass a ball more than 10 yards ffs.

    Won't work I don't think. Look at Ramsey today, playing like an AM, Cazorla can't cover for him.

    I think Ramsey is more than capable of playing a deeper midfield role tbh. Not asking him to play as a DM, just asking him to play with a little more disciple.

    We saw it happen a couple of times at the end of last season when Wenger brought him on to replace Coquelin, and he looked great there.

    Coquelin is still a starter for me, even though today was probably his worst game since his emergence for us. His hollywood passes were actually making me giggle today, some of his switches didn't have a prayer.

    A DM was and still is a necessity.

    Not even sure that's true anymore, would be interested to see how much ground he covered

    Yeah, Coquelin either has to go back to basics, or back to Charlton were he probably belongs.

    I guarantee you his Pirlo wannabe impersonation has been encouraged by Wenger.

    Ramsey has the tackling, positioning, strength and pace to play a deeper role, which'll spare us Coquelin's ordinary distribution, but unfortunately it is beneath the great Welshman to put in a defensive shift anymore, and is convinced that he has a free role on the pitch so that he can score those YouTube compilation goals.

    Not pointing the fingers at anyone in particular, but this place gets so poisonous after a loss.

    That was Coquelin's first bad game since returning to us. He's fine. Everyone had a mare today.

    Ramsey is way past being transformed into a DM. It would be like have Song there x 1000. Ramsey would go run-abouts every other minute. I'm afraid his desire to score and get forward is too ingrained in his mind right now- it would be near impossible to convince him to stay as our DM all game.

    If we're going to drop anyone for the Palace game however, i'd have to go with Özil, as much as i rate him. Think we naturally have to go there with a very defensively minded set up now while looking to not get dominated by their midfield. Can see Özil getting bullied around next week.

    Tough decision after how bad Ramsey was today but i think we need to go with a midfield 3 next week.

    Has to be Santi, although he doesn't deserve to be dropped.

    Ramsey adds energy, drive and goalscoring which we are already lacking at times. We have Özil as our playmaker, make him the go-to man for the team who can play the killer pass and the single one at that. Santi will still get plenty of minutes when players need a rest or when Özil has an off-day.

    Both the game of Özil and Cazorla will improve when we drop Giroud.

    Easy decision this for me, Ramsey.
