Anyone have a clue as to why we bought Pepe? Clearly Emery and Ljunberg don't rate him. Cannot get any minutes when we are desperate for a winning goal. Brings on Torreira, Saka and Martinelli.
This must be destroying his confidence and, in doing that, reducing him from a 72M player to a player worth a lot, lot less.
And then there is Tierney!

Pressure for results I guess mate, but that doesn't explain Xhaka playing.
I think the plan was Auba Lacca Pepe with Ozil frozen completely out of the picture in an attempt to force him out of the club but results performances and pressure forced a change of plan instead and the struggling Pepe had to make way in an attempt to turn things around.
It's all a mess right now and a fresh start is needed in all departments.

I actually think David Luiz should play as a DM, as he can pass and doesn’t mind getting stuck in. Emery played him there last game and it was after his rip injury And came off, we went back to awful. And all us fans want to see for a few weeks on the spin- Ozil feeding aubamayang laca and Pepe in front.

I agree coldice. I think xhaka and Luiz looked solid as a dm partnership in emery's last game.

We could try the novel idea of picking an 11 and formation and sticking with it for 5 games I guess rather than chop change tinker tweek from game to game.
I agree ice play Luis DM Just in front of Chambers and Papa or Holding.
Sooner or later you've got to say this is my best 11 and back your own judgement and work on all weaknesses and mistakes in traing with those 11.
Be proactive be positive rather than keep reacting to every negative moment.
Give it 5 games come rain or shine and then tweek if and where necessary.

I just worry about how many players have come to Arsenal over the last many years and are regressing as players in their time with us. In the last 10 years I cannot think of many players who have really improved in their time with us.
This can't keep going like this and I am sure is a big factor in our decline over these years.

I think 62 is right. Ozil wasn't in the plans and Pepe was second top scorer in France I think, and was one of very few available winger/ wide attackers that could run at people successfully. Overvalued no doubt, but let's give him a chance!

Reports saying laca could be dropped for Pepe. I have no idea what’s going on at the training field, but I can’t be the only fan that thinks play 4 at the back, 2 holding (not box to box) and leave Ozil feeding Pepe Laca and Aubamayang up top. With bellerin (if fit) and tieny fullbacks, our flanks are rapid. let’s face it, we don’t have the players to defend with any real quality, so surely we have to be extra aggressive with our attacks. Score more than the opponents if you will.

Don’t judge Pepe or other players until they play under a quality manager. The players are devoid of confidence. We must get an experienced manager in and quick.

The line up lacks width and Laca is just not playing well enough to justify playing Aubameyang out of position. Lineup should be
Bellerin Chambers Luiz Tierney
Xhaka Ozil Torreira
Pepe Auba Saka/ Gabriel

That’s a line up that can get behind the defensive regularly with pace. Xhaka whether you like him or not gives us better Midfield control.
