This. We sold players because we had to (or so we were told). We dont have to now so we wont.


To be sustainable we need to do a Dortmund minus the profit taking. No more has beens that can't make it at Barca or RM.

We have a good core of young players like Pepe, Saka, Martinelli, Terney, Hector (sort of), Smith Rowe, Leno, etc who if stay might well be a golden or at least silver generation to build on. If we keep developing players, nick some from other clubs and let Arteta establish the culture he demands I can see us getting back into the top tier as Liverpool did at some point.

The virus will ensure that transfer fees are not going to keep rising as they have at least for now. The China league is done for. Most smaller clubs will be lucky to survive so a smart director of football will have plenty of opportunity to scavenge some great young talent cheap. I hope Edu is that guy.
What would Nasri do? Never mind.
What would Eboue do? Fall off the stretcher.
What would Auba do? Just f***ing score.

Does anyone think Arteta should carry on with the 3-4-3 or go back to the 4-2-3-1?

What I saw against Sheffield is just like with Emery, we played better with the 3-4-3, we beat Inter Millan with 3-4-3.

Like it or hate it, I honestly would of liked us to try something like Leicesters 4-1-4-1 but if that's not in Arteta's mind and he's basically picking off from where Emery left off then I've seen enough evidence especially in Emery's reign that 3-4-3 works better with these players than 4-2-3-1.

If this whole Partey bs is true, I can see Arteta fielding a fluid 4-3-3 next season with:

Leno
Soares - Saliba - Mari - Tierney
Partey - Xhaka - Saka
Pepe - Nketiah* - Martinelli


* If Auba leaves.

If Auba stays, Martinelli false 9, lads.

4-1-4-1 or 4-1-3-2, thats what I want to see.

Mustafi........ Holding

Bellerin........................................Tierney

........Ceballos.......Xhaka

Do you really think Arteta sees Soares as a starter?

Depends if Bellerin continues to perform like he's a player who's past his prime, or molds his game.

I love me some Bella, but I have no idea why he already looks like he's past his prime.

Well I think that answers that.

3-4-3 it is.

That's the first time since the restart that we've actually played decent football.

It also solves the Auba playing too wide issue as he's now playing LWF instead of LW as Tierney's playing wide.

Also is helping our CB's play out from the back as there's 3 of them there now with two Wing back outlets on top of that.

Happy that Arteta has spotted the improvement against Sheffield and run with it.

Was a good win
But feet on the floor we looked shakey at the back a couple of times and had no composure on the ball at the start of the 2nd half
Possitives far outweigh negatives
I would leave holding in that back 3 cb
Soares looks great
Cebellos had a great first half
Martinez with some good saves

Maybe it's bias, but I like our pressing a lot more under Arteta than I did under Emery. Actually seems to have a purpose these days instead of running around to run around.
