Well this is the dumb thing because this is what the fkin midfield should of been anyway, it shouldn't take injuries and a Captain going spastic at the crowd to get our best midfield.

We don't even know for sure if he's not going to go for Willock > Ozil.

This right here has been the crux of Emery's season this year and its why he's likely to get fired, he sabotaged his own fortunes by man crushing on Xhaka so we haven't even now got a settled starting XI or formation.

Embarrassing stuff from Emery.

Xhaka is still crying so we have no choice but to use this midfield.

We will concede at least 3 goals. But it could be 5-6. Not just because its rubbish in protecting the defence but they wont offer enough in attack either.

I expect a meltdown from Torreria once the 4th goes in.

If that is the midfield we'd have half a chance of a performance, Ozil playing at CAM will mean Emery should have the bright spark of using Torreria as a CDM ........... can you imagine it?

This should be the line up but it won't be.

I honestly think we'll get slapped, conceding that many shots Leicester's front 3 will have a field day.


Leicester will walk through that midfield as if Christmas has come early. Not even that its shit defensively, its shit offensively also. How many goals and assists do these three have this season, or last mind you? We wont create good chances with that lineup and when we give up possession so cheaply we will get punished hard on the counter.

In pure talent sense, 'on paper', Leicester have better midfielders than us.

The only way we beat them is to win ugly and on the counter. Rodgers always gets beaten on the counter.

We ain't good enough to play consistent and effective possession football until we buy a proper attacking mid at the very least in January and maybe another player if we sell Xhaka.


Ozil is the best we have at creating chances as he has proven in his limited time this season. We look devoid of ideas going forward without Ozil.
If Guendouzi and Torriera are told to carry water then that's the perfect midfield for what we have right now.


Ozil has been here since 2013. I have no more patience left with him.

He's deadwood, should have been sold this summer but we are stuck with him. He's still not good enough to be risked against good opposition away from home and he's rubbish in the final 3rd now since he's too slow to move between the lines and produce assists, and he's useless off the ball.

Off the bench if we a losing, i don't mind if there is nothing to lose, but no. Leicester are better than us. We need to keep things tight and counter. I give a rats ass about playing well right now. We need to just accept we are shit and try to just get a result.

Playing nice football is out the mother f***ing window until we buy in January. We need to just stop being pussies and fight!

Players! Managers and this f***ing toxic part of the fanbase, we ain't no soyboys here, oh no, we need to fight!


It's way more than fight that we need.
You haven;t been paying attention if that's what you think is the issue.
One of many problems we have had is the lack of chances and shots on goal we are getting.
We've badly missed Ozil.
Utterly crazy decision from Emery to bench our best player.
I thought we got our Arsenal back - but we got Emery

I'm not repeating myself

With what attacking midfielders?

Wengers squads always had too many attacking mids. We don't have one proper good attacking mid currently.

Ceballos is best used as a CM, he's Xavi with the mindest of Iniesta but lacks the penetration to score and provide enough assists in the final 3rd. He's not quick, he has zero power, he can't cover large areas of the pitch, he can't run at players at pace. This is why he does his best work in deeper areas. He's incompetent in the final 3rd.

Matteo has no goal threat for assists or scoring in the final 3rd, he's not the fastest player and isn't that good technically and has no vision to dictate things in the final 3rd. Hes best used in deeper areas.

Torreria is a DM who Emery is trying to convert into a Box to box player which suits him also. Thing is he's such a limited player really. He can tackle brilliantly, he's got great energy, he's fast enough to cover large areas of midfield but that's it. His all round game is bang average. Hes a good passer from deep but lacks the technique to be competent in he final 3rd consistently.

And that's it for senior players! Ozil can't even make a positive impact vs Watford with Ceballos behind him. He can't make an impact playing vs Forest so good luck him doing anything consistently. Fundamentally he doesn't move enough anymore to find space to make his passes count, that shows from his pitiful numbers of assists and goals last season.

Willock is a hole player, hes about physicallity and speed, hes not a gifted player or creator. ESR is still way too raw to play there.

Reiss Nelson is a Messi wannabe, he lacks the vision and passing skills to play as a attacking mid. Martinelli is similar in that he's an explosive player. He's not a creator.


So well tomorrow Its all hope, zero expectation.
