    As in, in the midfield two?
  2. Droos JP Rhodes

    That's fucking retarded imo. You really want both of them as far as possible forward, but I can also see that one of them would have to sacrifice playing further back if they both want to be accommodated. Ramsey for me especially needs to play as far forward as possible - he has a knack for scoring these insane goals at the worst possible angles and is so good from that right hand side. I would have played him on the right with Ozil central and Sanchez left obv feeding Giroud. The Coq deserves his spot and Cazorla can then slot in next to him.

    Such an amazing performance last night, hoping we can take this form into the early parts of the season and really send a message out that we're serious now.
  4. Droos JP Rhodes

    Another win against Wolfsburg, looking good.
  5. Cabinet96 OTN Wood

    Highest Emirates Cup points tally ever. No goals conceded, seven goals scored by seven different people. We're going to win the fucking treble.
  6. Droos JP Rhodes

    Haha, slow down there Tiger. :p
  7. Jager LO Townsend

    I know, Barclays Asia Trophy, Emirates Cup and Community Shield. So pumped.
  8. Jager LO Townsend

    Pretty happy with that UCL draw. Hoping we can get through to the quarters or even semis this year! Would be nice to do well in Europe.
  9. Alex AJ O'Driscoll

    striker depth is a worry.
  10. SmellyStuff MP Chung

    I'm more worried about wtf happens if Coquelin is injured.
  11. Jager LO Townsend

    I don't have any doubts about Arteta's ability to fill in there. He's obviously a different sort of player, but I think he's very valuable.

    Striker-wise, I think Giroud is a great player, but yes, there's always going to be those doubts about his ability. Walcott's certainly not the answer
  12. Cabinet96 OTN Wood

    Main worry about Arteta is fitness and whether he can still move properly following a 6/7 month injury at his age. He's looked pretty good when he's come on as a sub though.
  13. BigDougy DG Dafter

    Surely Arsenal have to be looking for a striker in January. One injury more and they are looking up shit creek. If they end up relying on Walcott, the situation will be dire.
  14. Eggman DA Eggman

    You'd hope so, they look quite shallow in that area. I'd say they should also look at a back up for Coq. He really anchors the mid and with him gone i feel like Arsenals CHs will be exposed.
  15. Jager LO Townsend

    It's pretty fruitless searching for a top quality striker in January though - most teams aren't willing to trade their prize asset midway through a season naturally, and the way we handle our transfer business (e.g not bullying our way to getting our man like Chelski etc.) means we're probably not gonna have that extra chance of doing it.
  16. BigDougy DG Dafter

    Yeah, the January window is full of mercenaries!
  17. Jager LO Townsend

    After two years of ardently advocating Giroud's qualities, I think I'm finally done with him now. The final straw was the pathetic red card against Zagreb. Thoughts?
  18. Jager LO Townsend

    The irony in me lamenting Giroud's performances and antics is that I also loathe the fact we're seemingly incapable of shooting first time in the box - Giroud is actually most likely to do so
  19. Cabinet96 OTN Wood

    He's a great sub though. I look forward to that being his role for a couple of months.
  20. Droos JP Rhodes

    Sanchez back in form, now Arsenal can kick on.
