Wenger has cost us the points there. Anyone who watched pre season and against leicester could see the balance is all wrong at the back. You can maybe get away with one wb in the back 3 but to have 2 is just taking the mickey really. monreal marshalling the back 3 is a joke and we will never see the best of kolasinac till he is playing lwb. It seems he is trying to accomodate the ox and bellerin but neither can play lwb effectively. A back 3 of mustafi, mert and monreal with ox and kola as wing back i believe would have won us the game. Monreal is not a central starter in our back 3 and neither ox or bellerin can play lwb. Sort it out and get the cover in wenger because if we play that same back 3 against liverpool it will be 4 or 5.

Is that you Steve. r.

I agree with you kcrider but the strange thing was Monreal was our best cb on yesterday, imo. Mustafi was awful and very lucky not to cost us a goal.
Bellerin? Ox is a much better rwb and as a lwb I think anyone else you could name would be better.

And why are we offering big money for Ozil? I remember about 2 years ago the guy would produce chances - loads of them. Not anymore.

Finally, I had very high hopes for Xhala this year but he has been at fault for all 4 goals we conceded this year. He was, after all outjumped by Okazaki!

{Ed001's Note - Monreal was at fault for the goal.}

I agree with kcider. Trying to accommodate the Ox and Bellerin together in the lineup was stupid and if he doesn't learn from this it will cost us points again and again.

Holding should really have started and Monreal is LCB/ LWB or bench. If he can't be ruthless now it doesn't matter who we sign. Without Kos and Alexis we are looking feeble.

I think monreal is an important and good player for us. but he works either on the left of our back 3 or us lwb. I think playing him in the centre of the back 3 is showing arrogance to the quality of premiership teams and strikers and we have been punished in both games by conceding cheap goals. Also name me any top teams that don't play a left footed player at lwb and a
right footer at rwb? That alone creates more opportunity to stretch teams and create chances. There is no excuse really for a club with arsenals size to not have the cover in for the start of the season.

Kcider Liverpool played Milner, chelski played aspilaqueta, the problem is when the player is not actually good enough. I don't know what people see in bellarin anyway, he's a squad player at best.

20 Aug 2017 10:52:29
I reckon we have the cover - playing a back 3 of Holding/ Mustafi/ Monreal would have been fine - even Chambers could and should have played under the circumstances. It's almost as if he feels compelled to give the Ox minutes in order to make sure he doesn't go to Chelsea, but honestly 35m is a fair bit more than he's worth. Take the money and pick up Lemar.

Love the club but Wenger and the board really do my head in sometimes. They made promises this summer and at the end of last season - they absolutely need to stick to them.

Why would Barcelona want one of squad players Steve?
Belerin is an excellent player trying to fit into a jigsaw puzzle made up of all the wrong pieces.
We have full backs playing as Centre backs and cmf player's playing full backs and 2 players who don't really fit in anywhere playing cmf.
No wonder no one looks like world beaters within that set up.
Arsene is favourite player pleasing and trying to get Ox to stay when naming his team.
Arsenes idea of ballance is more focused in the changing room that on the pitch.

Steve r, you mentioned azpelequeta and milner playing lwb as right footers. Are either still playing there? their managers realised and bought in left footers in alonso and robertson. You will always be playing within yourself if your wb is not playing on the correct side. Not so important with wingers but definitely is with full backs.

Kcid just pointing out, they were short and did a good job. Gunner I've said it before bellarin would be better suited in the Spanish league. Barcelona didn't want him that badly, I believe they only wanted to pay 15 mil anyway.
