Ozil's frozen out as he doesn't play the way Emery wants. So at least we have one player in the team who has tactical knowledge and a bit of fight :)

Emerys methods obviously aren't working and the only value he brings to Arsenal now is comedy value and that's not good for Emery Arsenal the planters or fans.
The longer he's allowed to continue the more he will be ridiculed and laughed about by neutrals and the more unpopular he will become with Arsenal fans and of course the more our better players will question What they are doing at Arsenal.
It's best for everyone including Emery to call time on this mistake now.

Well, I completely agree of course but there is a middle way.

Emery is a apparently a smart guy, so he could be waiting to try something different until everyone is fully fit, but he's on borrowed time already. He definitely needs to do something drastic soon so he won't be left wondering if it would make the difference once he's sacked.

Realistically, something like this would surely make sense and not compromise his stubbornness:


Benchin chambers only as he can comfortably cover RB, CB and DM without having to shuffle the team, or play him instead of Bellerin or holding to ease them in.

No Xhaka? And playing Ozil? That wouldn't be a compromise for Emery but a total surrender Jim mate.
I never used to think it but now I think it's an ego thing we're he feels the team is incapable without his tinkering and out smarting his opposite number by making himself his team selections and tactics totally unpredictable.
I genuinely think he considers himself that crucial in each and every game.

Jim, the only changes I would opt for is Chambers to replace Paoa. Laca and PEA as a front two with Ozil in the hole. Don’t like PEA out wide. Perhaps then replace Pepe with Ceballos or Matteo. I would also like a back 3 as an option.

I’d give up on Emery.

As RG would say the Embarrassment at the Emirates goes on SY :-)

Sy, chambers for papa in that lineup I put there? If so, I was thinking about best cover from the bench, but think you're right to start him.

I think you and I were agreeing on Ozil behind Aub+Laca setup last season too Sy and were both pulling out hair out then! having splashed out on Pepe, I think Pepe, laca, Auba is more likely. I do think switching between the 2 front formations is a really sensible way of changing up the team though, but I'd take either!

Ed47, we've got the answers now - can you pass them on to the boss please?
