Good banter fodder following on from Sharpie below.

Before the start of last season i asked on here what people thought the season would hold for theo and the Ox BEFORE it starts, whether they should be sold and before they have hindsight. I said something like 25 goals between them and would play well given enough game time. Many wanted them gone.

How about something similar now. Pick a player and pin your thoughts to the mast. Ill start with the Ox again.

Strong, direct, can go round defenders and hold them off, composed, works tirelessly and showed a really improved defensive awareness last season plus versatility which shows he's got a great understanding of the game. Just 23 i think. This season I think he'll get some assists but nothing special numberwise, but i really think he'll kick on given the chance and be the standout player for us behind whoever is scoring a lot - after he's had a couple of starts to warm up.

As such, for me he is a key part of the future of the club. The problem is that he needs game time to improve and iron out the occasional mistake. He wants to be central and aw has said that too. Ozil is better in his role than ox or rambo (who would both thrive there i think and I'd even say if ozil demanded crazy money, i'd let him ho and gamble on those two) so for now With 3 at the back ox can only play alongside xhaka. Obv can cover for bellerin too/ even a bit of competition for him. With 4 at the back he can play rw or alongside xhaka. For me, either aw has to make ramsey and ox fight it out for that central role perhaps starting one in the league and one the cups/ EL and base on performance or give the ox a new contract but let him go on loan overseas. That said, for him its probably best to leave, but if he does, we will definitely regret it.

And please. No thumbs up. It's so last season.

How people can put so much faith in xhaka is beyond me, he may step up but hasn't yet at all and the ox whether inside or out and for me at the moment wide. He has to play and again ever since he came here he's not managed that.

Steve your so miserable . I never hear anything positive ever. It's all doom and gloom. I'd hate to have to be around you on a daily basis I bet it's torture.

But I'm right sano, sorry for pointing the obvious. There has to be reasons why we fell down this year and others. Valid points, not made up. Maybe if we manage to actually put a challenge in there might be more positives. When you look positive in what you achieve then you are on the right track. I can't see what is negative in stating the obvious. Xhaka was a disappointment and ox is better out wide at the moment. Xhaka has to improve and the ox has to play more, simples.

Plus sano I will be even more miserable when our best player is sold and mahrez is right wing back. Lol.

Steve the point is you only ever choose facts that are negative. I'm not saying your wrong half the time but you never ever post anything positive. Tell me I'm wrong Steve! There are lots of Facts that are positive so why do you only ever choose negative facts. Admit it your a Debbie downer mate. Every day every post and along comes steve with his miserable fact or negative comment and then think your justified because there's some truth in it. Why can't you be more even handed Steve. Is it so hard to look on the bright side once In a while. It really must be a crap life been you.

You obviously don't see the irony in my posts sano. I have to live up to my avatars.

When we win the league sano, I will try my hardest to see the positive in it but I'm sure I will pop a negative in there as well. Will we ever find that out.

For me Steve the love and familiarity has gone it's not "it's our steve whinging " anymore.

Not a problem sano, there are posters on here who I can't get, I don't have a problem if you don't my posts, that's the way the cookie crumbles.

{Ed033's Note - There seems to be some words missing in that post that are probably in the cookie.
