Will Ozil play behind front 2 or be pushed out left ?

It wouldn't surprise me if Xhaka is played at the back and we play 3-4-1-2.

Re: Team news & Watford match thread.
Boston Gooner 15 September, 2019 16:41
10 minutes in and showing nothing going forward.

To be fair to him he is defending against two people in this game since he is playing behind the most useless player on the team in Ozil when it comes to defending.

Boston Gooner 15 September, 2019 16:53
Aubameyang puts us 1 up against the run of play.

Nice finish!!!

AMN is shocking today, cant wait for Hector to get back.

Re: Team news & Watford match thread.

Going to say ceballos is the best player at the club. Feels a lot like Santi. Ozil is useless imo. Rather see willock

Re: Team news & Watford match thread.
hahanice 15 September, 2019 17:03
Ok that was pretty good

Re: Team news & Watford match thread.
Trent2000 15 September, 2019 17:12
Take Xhaka out and put in Torreria, pretty good team with fullbacks coming back and slotting in.

Re: Team news & Watford match thread.
Boston Gooner 15 September, 2019 17:19
2 up at half time.
And playing poor.
Luiz is a bloody nightmare.

Amn is a young player playing out of position, so of course he'll have bad games. He's had 2 or 3 in a row now so the best thing for him is to have a few games out of the spotlight to give him a little break.

Time to give chambers a chance there until bellerin comes back

Ozil s been the best player on the pitch along with auba mate. The positions and runs hes made have driven us forward. He has been the primary outball and Ceballos has found him.

Everybody else has been decent barring luiz who s had a shocker and AMN and Kolasinac who have just been poor on possession.

Are you serious, wtf are we doing, up 2 to 0 and give one away, should be more than that.

I blame the freaking coach, wtf are we doing Emery?

Re: Team news & Watford match thread.
Boston Gooner 15 September, 2019 17:44
What a total f uck up.
When will we realise we can't play out from the back with the idiots we have.

This whole playing from the back at any cost is pretty stupid, isn't it.

Emery, you facking IDIOT!!!!

We could all see from miles away that this strategy WAS NOT WORKING!
100% on the manager.
His strategy. He OWNS IT!

Crap ...

Oh My God!
We are STILL doing it!

Re: Team news & Watford match thread.

Again we play that stupid move playing out from the back and it nearly costs us.

At 2-0 up, its suicide to be playing out from the back. It's just encouraging Watford who were lacking idea. Poor management and stupid from the players all round.

I honestly can't believe they continued it after Guendouzi almost got caught out twice. Absolute madness.

Willy 15 September, 2019 17:54
They haven’t even stopped it since conceding. All these analysts at the club and they can’t even manage a basic pros and cons list. Clearly more to lose than there is to gain from this, why try and be Man City when even they leak goals from it?

Re: Team news & Watford match thread.
Kalela 15 September, 2019 17:56
These substitutions will only invite pressure. Would rather see Nelson in there.

Re: Team news & Watford match thread.
Willy 15 September, 2019 17:58
Pepe keeps turning the ball over. Hate to say it but he is reminding me of Walcott.

Re: Team news & Watford match thread.
kudzif01 15 September, 2019 18:03
This is the exact team as last season:i see no improvement.Arsenal do not have players capable of playing out from the back, although i approve of the strategy our players simply cannot do it.

Re: Team news & Watford match thread.
Boston Gooner 15 September, 2019 18:10
Is Luiz really our player.
What a fu cling idiot.

Ozil and Aubameyang were our only outballs all day. No other player had been able to find good sources and he took off ozil and brought on Nelson who has been absolutely @#$%&

Re: Team news & Watford match thread.
Kalela 15 September, 2019 18:23
Despite all his fancy moves it appears Pepe can't keep the ball for a second and he never tracks back. Nelson on the other can't also keep the ball without losing it. Nelson didn't cost 80 million though.

Re: Team news & Watford match thread.
Trent2000 15 September, 2019 18:24
I have never seen a coach completely destroy a game that was a stroll in the park away from home, utterly unreal for me to watch.

WTF does he seriously add to the club, honestly.

Would any coach let his players play from the back after what was going on?

First sub was completely stupid and Abu must think, what do I have to do to win a game?

Re: Team news & Watford match thread.
Gooner Sod 15 September, 2019 18:24
Just shocking game management from the team and especially the manager. I can't believe it man.

Sokratis and Luiz are really shocking, Holding needs to come back ASAP.

Emery is a poor manager by the looks of it. @#$%& off.

I think this game really showed the lack of leadership on the pitch. Game management, organisation can only be taken from a manager up to a certain point. I don’t think it makes sense taking Ozil off when we need more control of a game, that’s when we need him and we should find a way of getting it.

Re: Team news & Watford match thread.
Trent2000 15 September, 2019 18:34
Xhaka was walking back the whole freaking game, unreal.

Re: Team news & Watford match thread.
Merlion96 15 September, 2019 18:43
One happenstance - Guendouzi tried to dribbled out of the box and turned into Duelofue who robbed him of the ball.

Twice coincidence - Guendouzi passed acrossed the box and a Watford player intercepted it in a flash.

Thrice punishment - sokratis lazily passed to Guendouzi, again interepted by DUelofue who passed to CLevery to score.

What a dumbfcuk of a manager who coached a brainless twit like Guendouzi who lacks positional awareness and still lacks that tactical football brain who should learn by now at a glance and instantly knew the overall tactical situation on the pitch.

Meaning, till today, Guendouzi does not have two cells to rub together to produce a football brain.
