I was away for the toot match and watched the second half this morning, as I couldn't bring myself to watch the first half!
I was disappointed that we gave away 2 goals and was ready to condemn Xhaka and Luiz, but their second half performances were decent.

Xhaka played with passion, worked hard to track back and sprayed passes about like a quarter back. Whilst Luiz defended well and his passing range is superb.
My thoughts went to the next match, with the keeper, defence and front three being the same as the starting line up v toot. My quandary was for the midfield three. Guendouzi was the first definite starter, he was superb in the last match.

The other two places became a selection of two from Ceballos, Torreira and Xhaka. My gut feeling is to select Xhaka and Cellabos, as Watford tend to elect a tall, physical midfield and Torreira for all his tenacity can be vulnerable against such players. In addition, without reference to the fixtures, he may have the most travel playing for Uruguay. I would appreciate fellow Gooners thoughts on the midfield 3 v Watford.

I am struggling to take our side seriously with a 🤡 in the middle of a back four and. 🤡 in Centre midfield - you can’t have that with a headless Matteo charging all over the pitch. It gives us no foundation or shape.

Let’s assume a back 4 is Unai’s preferred set up - Holding or Chambers and Papa in the middle. Get some discipline in there.

In the middle of midfield - get some height and bite. Drop Xhaka and play Luiz ( don’t need a CD playing Hollywood balls) with Torriera ( let him run out of a juice and replace with Matteo )

Put Ceballos in the hole behind the obvious front 3

Or play 3 at the back and to be fair I would happily play Holding, Chambers and Papa rather than let Lu🤡z play there.

I would rather Xhaka fall behind and not track back if he’s going to make stupid tackles in the box. This guy is a total joke and one brilliant pass during the match will not satisfy his awfulness all around. I just can’t believe there are fans still defending him.

Raver, you don't expect him to use your golf cart, do you?

The golf cart is for the king of the roads the famous raver, when Japanese tourists are taking photos of Trafalgar square and they see me coming up the road they all start chasing the famous car and asking for selfies with the raver,
