I have to admit i have never been a fan of the 3 across the back as you always have to sacrifice a forward player from the team to compensate for the fact that you are in effect playing with 5 defenders. However, credit to Emery as we have looked a much better unit in the last 2 games, and most importantly, it seems to suit the players we have. We seem to be able to take the ball from defence up the pitch much more successfully with the current formation, and we don't get as exposed having the two fullbacks pushed up the pitch. It is also helping our players, with for me, Holding in particular starting to look a very decent player, as much for how comfortable he is bringing the ball out as for his defending. Perhaps he wouldn't be in the starting XI as much with just 2 CB's? Mustafi is also starting to look the player he was, and should be. Perhaps the truth is Torreira is just making them look better? One thing yesterday was Ramsey, who i thought was superb when he came on, perhaps because Lacca and Aubey were parting to leave a big space for the AM to run into, a role he clearly likes and does so successfully for Wales (and Arsenal in the past) . Does this give the management an issue, in that if he can continue do that so well, why would you let him leave on a freebie just to try to find someone else to do the same job, albeit at a smaller salary (but for a big fat transfer fee) ?

Maybe if Aaron can continue to impress and starts to change his comportment maybe things will change.

Ramsey is a good player playing in the hole but will he ever be team player consistently or will his natural instincts to be a self propelled flamboyant super hero always kick in at the cost of the team?
If anyone can change him it's Dick but Aaron needs to seriously rethink his actual ability to £s paid ratio before that can even be thought of by Arsenal.
Aaron Ramsey is in reality only 25% as good as Aaron Ramsey thinks he is.

Like Walcott, arsenal and ramsey need to move on. The next chapter is just starting.
