  1. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain

    Definitely starting to think he'd be brilliant there. Still wonder if he would want to be in that position long-term though
  2. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain

    I ended up catching the game and brilliant stamina shown today. Some of the runs he made at the end of the game were incredible. Starting to warm up more to him as a wingback, it's where he played today. I think his decision making is excellent and his final ball/passes in the final third are good too. Needs to work on his finishing though. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Alexis Sanchez

    My biggest critique of him is that he gives the ball away in dangerous situations way too often. You want him as far away from your own goal as possible. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Would be a really good game to watch to see the Ox there and sanchez in a similar formation to ours. I'll have to catch it later

    Anybody watching the arsenal vs Middlesbrough game? I can't watch it but according to the PL app, it seems arsenal are playing 3 in the back, possibly with Monreal and the Ox as wingbacks. Was wondering if this is true or if they just have the formation wrong? And how does the Ox look as a wingback if he is there?
  6. 3. Marcos Alonso

    the following is about Cahill....I definitely disagree with that. I think that he often just has a lot of time and space when he gets the ball. He always makes the simple pass either to a center mid or to Luiz or to Alonso on the left. That's about it. But when he doesn't have that space to dribble the ball into or the time to make simplest of passes, he greatly struggles. If he is under any type of pressure he often boots it away, he definitely isn't calm in those situations. There are times and every single game where he should be keeping the ball, but is not comfortable enough to do so. There's also times where he needs to make a more advancing pass, but he only makes the simple short pass because that is what he's comfortable with and is able to do. He really limits us in possession

    Exactly, we can't just be happy with the status quo. It's the same with how Cahill has been performing pretty well recently, but he has massive limitations. Cahill is very poor in possession and is overly passive in defending (among other things). Alonso is very slow and gets skinned often around the edge. He also is sometimes a little predictable. That is not taking away from the great things he brings to the team, because he is vital part at the moment. Like you said, if we are to take the next step as a team, we have to improve.
  8. General Transfer Talk

    I love him as a player. He has so much passion too. There's been a few times he's gotten really frustrated at the lack of effort from his fellow Arsenal players. He wants to win. I see more as a CM though. I think that's his best position. But I am not sure if he would fit in the best in our current formation there. I just think he could be limited at RWB, although I think he could be good there. What are your thoughts about him as a CM? And do you think he would be too limited as a RWB?
  9. 28. César Azpilicueta

    Agree with you and@manpe. He takes the ball and dribbles forward with it quite often. That automatically makes the defending team adjust their position. It opens up more space than is easily seen. He's brilliant at taking it forward in to the space and finding the right pass. And more often than not, it's the right pass. It creates a little overload on that right side, and is especially important when we are attacking with numbers.
  10. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain

    Agreed. I really like him as a player. Versatile, but I think CM is his best position. You can tell he's been getting so frustrated with the team. There's been a few games he has been working so hard near the end and nobody else is trying to press and win the ball. Can't blame him for wanting to leave. Mentality.
  11. The English Football Thread

    Flat-track bullying and grinding out results against top teams really is the best formula to win the league.
  12. Dominic Solanke

    I think you have to be a certain age to be able to do that. I want to say the rule is you have to be like 23 or 25. I could be wrong though
  13. Chelsea 2-0 Hull

    Yea I was upset about Cahill not coming too. He should have, especially after assessing him and finding "not really good" at halftime. I get upset so often in sports when head injuries happen and they continue playing. It's not worth that. Get properly checked out, and if there's hints of a concussion, get out of the game right then. Concussions have terrible long term effects and they are compounded when people continue to play right after it.
  14. 3. Marcos Alonso

    I actually think he is pretty poor at shooting. Obviously scored two goals and had nice volley yesterday, but he's been very poor at shooting this season.
