I never feel especially happy with a back three. I always think this formation shows up our lack of width. Still, I'm sure Dick knows.

Agree0 Disagree0

But it should make more solid and less easy to expose on the break.
The full backs are our width whether we play 2 or 3 at the back, Belerin is expected to provide the ammunition constantly but no matter how quick he is he can't go from one end of the pitch to the other in 2 or 3 seconds like the ball does.
3 at the back should buy us recovery time when we lose possession.

Happy with 3 at the back although not sure Mustafi should be in the back 3
Would then like to see Laca and PEA as a front 2 with Ozil behind them in the hole
Good to see us changing formation and dropping players as don’t fit plan for the day eg Ozil even though I wish he was starting.

Spot in Gunner62. That's how it turned out. Some good performances and some shocking ones, Mhkii in particular, one of his worst games for us. Holding, Kola, Pea, and Torriera all v. good. We will need to defend better than that against spurs - a crucial game not to lose.

Absolutely Urban mate, our defence is scary and if you look at almost all our games this season you think? " We won't get away with that v Spurs ", but then the Liverpool game comes to mind and you think? " should we be more excited than worried " because if we can up our game enough to hold out Liverpool then only City are a step up and a tougher ask than Liverpool.
Personally I'd stick with the back 3 and play SY's front 3 of Ozil Pea Lacasette.
For me 3 4 3 makes sense given the players we have at our disposal right now and that front 3 are as good as almost any there is given the opportunity and enough of the ball.
As for Miki no disrespect but is he any better than Theo? 1 good game in 5 and pretty poor in the other 4 games, if we had sold Sanchez for the 50 million offered in the summer of 2017 would we have even bid for Miki in the first place? We took him because it was our only option left open to us in the end, but hopefully Dick will eventually get more from him and others too.
17 games unbeaten in all competitions we'd have taken that last August and we'd definitely take 20 unbeaten after next week and the United game that follows it :-)

Would like to see the young Greek dude in the back 3 along with Sokratis and Holding

Bellerin and Kola with Torriera plus a new CM

Ozil in front in the middle then PEA and Laca

We are closer than we have been for more than a decade to being competitive, it was always going to be a marathon rather than a sprint but we've made an impressive start where we are still on the shoulder of the leading pack.

Three at the back suits the pkayers we have at this club at the moment. Its the flexibility that we need to be ablexto adapt to formations.
