Arsene wenger formation: Doesn’t work, try again

The one that fell flat on its arse last season; the good old 4-2-3-1 with zero width. Let’s hope Lacazette up top makes a difference, otherwise can this formation die after today, please?

A pile, I assume.

No excuses if we do not win this one yet again playing Niles out of position and three left footed players in the middle of the park.

He is out of form. At least Wenger had the bottle to do it. Maitland-Niles is a quality player even when played out of position. Very involved in the last few games.

When will Wenger have the bottle to drop Sanchez?

Wish it was Kolasinac or Chambers instead of Xhaka and AMN in the middle.

Ex-academy player Isaac Hayden’s homecoming. Let’s hope it isn’t a happy one for him!

Where’s Kolasinac? I prefer Maitland-Niles on the right for now, as Bellerin seems to take his position for granted nowadays.

bellerin still in ? no changes and niles at left back when they have speedy wingers ! why not try to associate giroud and laca and drop the out of form sanchez and bellerin ?

What, use some common sense when we can just do the same old shit time and time again? What are you talking about?

Glad, Jack is back in .. i still think he has it in him, and he played well recently
Not so sure about Maitlaind-Niles though, would rather see Kolasinac there
Anyway, decent enough team to win against Newcastle, so let’s do it

The players playing out of position is wearing me down. Hopefully it works for us today.

Because Wenger.

That’s it.

Should have dropped Alexis and started Giroud instead along with Lacazette.
Giroud atleast if given a chance, would want to stay and fight. Sanchez on the other wants to scoot away from here on the very next opportunity available and has been playing like shit.
If Sanchez keeps getting dispossessed and doesn’t do shit today.. I am going to go mad.

Only Wenger could react to that pile of cack on Wednesday by making one change. I like his thinking with koscielny though:/break him as soon as possible and then you’ve got a great excuse when the season goes tits up in February.

So far 90% of our team have proved all the nay sayers in this article wrong… All except sanchez who is doing more of the same.
Doesn’t look half as bad when everyone else is playing well.

The table does not lie and neither does the results.
You call them nay sayers but perhaps you are just in denial..

We are winning 1-0
But I get the feeling it will end 1-1
You just know that defence has a mistake somewhere..

Xhaka has been absolutely awful. I don’t see him improving beyond his current ability which seems nowhere near a top class player.
