Is it a back three or Chambers in midfield?

Good question. Hoping it's a back 3.

442 diamond doesn't provide us with any width and that midfield would lack creativity. Wouldn't mind seeing chambers given a go in midfield though at some point

I like this team... Maybe i should change my prediction? I Hope Holding isn't too rusty for PL intensity.

He's just doing what wenger did when wenger realized ppl are walking through our midfield. Revert to a back 3 just to plug holes or rather hope

What the hell is Guendouzi up to.
Was a clear pen.
Got lucky.

I just don't see it with guendouzi. He gallops like a gazelle but doesn't really do anything.

Anyway, it's pretty horrible watching them walk through our midfield so easily.

Re: Team News & Leicester Match Thread
MickTheMan 09 November, 2019 18:08
Torreira isn't convincing either. We really need a monster midfielder this winter.

I'm not sure how we haven't conceeded though. The amount of space we've given then and the amount of chances they've created.

We look like we have a goal in our attack if we can get that final ball working though

Feels like a game that could go our way if we can hold then off but if not, I can see them scoring a few.

Ball just keeps coming back at us and we've helped Leicester make most of their best opportunities

Don't agree. He reads the game well. He's the least of our problems currently.

Midfield is the problem, we can't keep the ball. If we could, our centre backs wouldn't be put under so much pressure all the time.

Torreira is better defensively than Guendouzi so I'd keep playing Torreira, but he needs a partner who is like a cazorla/fabregas style player who can control the game when we have the ball.

We are riding our luck here. Every time we have the ball we just lose it and have to fumble our way through defending the next onslaught.

at least Emery can say having Ozil in the side does absolutely nothing for us

No clue in this team. How the f*vk can we always look second best phisicaly. They are always late for the loose ball, late with a tackle. No desire and no bottle.

EMERY OUT.

Nothing more to say. Game went as expected.

But I fear they won't sack him and our season will already be a write off by the time they do.

Re: Team News & Leicester Match Thread
CazOnARola 09 November, 2019 19:27
Let's not blame the players today. We were playing a completely new setup with new players in defense and a strategy that doesn't make sense. If our forwards were going to stay up and wide, why the @#$%& would you build out from the back? You need to release them quickly.

This formation is not conducive to keeping possession at all because of only two players at CM. So why the @#$%& would you bother to play out from the back? If we were not going to be more direct, why even play this formation.

It was not just a 5 ma defense, but the silly 3 man forward with the wide forwards hugging the touch line formation. Which means every time you lose the ball, u have so much space in the center. Straight out of FIFA. Almost as if he is out of ideas and now just trying random stuff.

Just go back to the basics and suck it up if you get beat.

It might help if we play simple formations rather than something out of FiFA 2014.

Tbh ozil as a false 9 in a regular 4-3-3 with more control in the midfield is better than having Lacazette and Aubameyang.

Both these players had shocking games in terms of passing today simple 8 hard passes missed in the final third today.
