Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (14)


#601

PLAY THEM BOTH


#602

I don’t see how they don’t together against Chelsea, with Özil and Mhki on the wing we have no explosiveness.

City and Liverpool are so dangerous because of their wide play, whereas we’re severely lacking in that department.

Boggles the mind.


#603

The lack of a winger triggers me so much.

Iwobi and Nelson need to step up and make those places theirs. For the good of my sanity.


#604

Yeah it was the one big miss this window… of course we had a LOT of issues to address and still do. I think there is some validity to giving some players a chance to flourish under Emery… it is a gamble, but I suspect in Jan and next summer we see a steady stream of exits and turnover as things shake out.


#605

I don’t think it was a miss rather than it was meant by Emery to line up like we did last Sunday. With Ozil and Mhkitaryan as wingers. It has to been seen how the experiment pans out.


#606

We really saw how much proper wingers makes a difference against city. Two full blooded wingers in sterling and Mahrez gave us plenty of problem all game long.

We need players in the wing who can take defenders on and beat a man. Ozil, miki, Auba dont do that and therefore we lack penetration in the attacking third.

Iwobi aint Mahrez but atleast he can beat a man, or atleast tries to beat his man :joy:


#607

Our new Bergkamp and Henry :heart:


#608

Find a way to play them together, Unai. It will be so exciting.

Drop Mkyhtarian for now.


#609

3-4-1-2 should be the way, imo. Oz just behind them :heart:


#610

Yeah maybe, but that isn’t a great plan IMHO lol and still leaves us light at wing attack - who is next? Ramsey? Iwobi? Kind of uninspiring and nobody with the kind of guile, quickness, etc we should be looking for wide. One of Micki and Ozil I kind of get, 2? Nah, we need more speed and threatening behind.

Should have gone for Bailey or like imho.


#611

You don’t need to

Torriera Ramsey
Ozil
Auba Laca Mkhitaryan


#612

You don’t have too tell me. Unai Emery is an uninspiring manager to begin with btw.


#613

They are both among our best 11 players and playing both of them is going to provide more positives than negatives. If we cn replace Laca with a winger along the line then that’s fine and we should do that but while they’re both here and fit they should both be playing.
