Re: I hate our team

We are playing 5 defenders. Wengers fullbacks anyway always see a lot of the ball. Its even more accentuated in this system.
Look at chelsea s fullback in an attacking sense and loon at ours.
Our team is a lot more suited to 4-3-3 cause bellerin and monreal are defenders first.

Kolasinic and bellerin will see much of the ball and will have to pay the final ball 2/3 times or the pre assist and that's where the pbm lies.

If we played ozil right wing, played 2 DMs and ramsey as 10, we would kill teams with lacazette.

I would play 2 of welbeck /sanchez/ozil outwide , lacazette centre and a midfield of coquelin /xhaka/ramsey, or coquelin wilshere ramsey if jack gets his "zip" back.

But here if sanchez plays left and ozil right, it makes our formation too narrow and this back fired when tried earlier.

Maybe it was giroud back then. I think it might work with lacazette and with maybe more maturity from Jack and ramsey.
This might well be the plan if ozil doesn't sign. Then we might play lemar(or any tricky winger), lacazette, welbeck upfront with coquelin/xhakha/wilshere and ramsey behind them.
