    Never want to see him play LB for this club ever again. Always always always gets targeted. Always makes mistakes. Shouldn't even be near the squad unless we're thinking about playing with wingbacks.

    This the same Arteta that got thoroughly outplayed by Moyes on his own patch and fluked a win with their only shot of the second half?

    That 334 formation from Lampard after we scored the 2nd was absolutely criminal. Almost FIFA like. Clear to see the team never practiced this.

    Honestly do amateurish. It's crazy because the switch to 433 is where we picked up momentum to score that first and second goal and we almost paid for it by switching away from that. Could argue that that momentum could've carried us through to a win but Lampard took one step forward with the change to 433, and two steps back.

    Tammy, Werner and Giroud were basically tied together in the center bumbling over each other. It was like watching a 6 legged race you see your Dads dow with his brothers drunk at a family get together.

    Btw, having watched these first few games do people who hate Declan Rice still think he wouldn't make a big difference? Or any natural, top DM. We have him sitting at the base of midfield breaking up everything and being the security blanket for the CB's would be massive. Kante and Kova are always out of position and any turnover of possesion means we're totally exposed.
    For me, a midfield 2 of Rice & Kova would be ideal. Kante can play in the biggest matches in place of Kova of need be.

    Indeed. He is very good at finding space and timing his runs. The problem on here is that it is quite clear that a lot of people must've been only looking at stats, Twitter and Youtube clips of him prior to signing as what we have seen isn't really a surprise. 
    Further, today he was much better as he was playing in the position that I have said all along he would/should play for us i.e. No.8/No.10. Yes, he did play No.11/No.9 last season but if anyone had actually watched him, they would've spotted that he wouldn't get away with playing those positions in the PL due to his playing style. 
    Further he is has been a slow starter in pretty much every season he has started. For me, I am not expecting him to be fully up and running until November at the earliest and even then, he should be given this season to acclimatise.

    Aware this was before half time but just wanted to point out what some people might get confused about regarding his awareness. He has a somewhat lax, languid style of play. His off the ball work & movement (offensively speaking) is actually one of the best bits of his game. 
    Once he gets used to the pace of the Premier, he's going to be one special player for us. Such a unique player.

    To me this smells like KDB 2.0 mate. I remember a lot on here including myself believing this sort of rhetoric with Kevin and now he's arguably the best player in the league. I think it'd be a huge mistake to let him go, he's destined to flourish somewhere else where he actually gets consistent game time.

    He needs to leave. We're KDB/Salah-ing him right now. No idea why Lamps has such a problem with him that he's playing central midfielders instead of him out wide. Plus, CHO would've also been far more effective than RLC at #10. 
    If he's not going to start during this period where both Pulisic and Ziyech are out, when will he? 
    People were slating Sarri for treating CHO like this (even Sarri's treatment was better imo) but don't say too much at all when it's Lampard who's running out an extremely talented player out of the club.

    Superb cameo from him today. Really pleased. Should definitely be our third choice CB. As mentioned above, we should be moving on AC or Rudiger before him.

    So clear to see from me how influential he'll be once he gets to play in the middle of the park and also gets used to the pace of the league. Not his fault Lampard is freestyling the offensive half of our team atm.
