Wenger is playing Ozil on the left and he's getting exposed every time by Navas. That's probably why Navas is starting. Does Wenger ever get his tactics right in big games? He's built great teams in the past but his tactical naivety is shocking sometimes.

regardless of the tactics, Ozil is a CAM he should be played in the CENTER at ALL TIMES. What's the point of Wenger making a big signing if he doesn't know how to use the players properly?

This is Wenger though. He's old now and has lost the plot a little. He played Oxlade-Chamberlain as a holding midfielder I think, in that 6-0 trashing and they were so open through the middle. If I was him, right now I'll sub out Ozil and bring in Cazorla. Arsenal have been much better but they're losing partly because of Wenger.

they're losing because Welbeck sucks... and also because Wenger doesn't know shit

Ozil isn't actually too slow to play on the wing. Iniesta and Silva can play on the wing well despite not being speed monsters. Ozil is not too slow. He's too lethargic to play there. There's a difference.

Hehehe, kinda harsh on Welbeck. . He was a couple of inches from scoring but it just nicked the post. He probably will be Brazil's main striker if he was Brazilian ^_^ .

Can't argue with the second part though.

What is this ridiculous revisionism re: Welbeck? I've heard Patrick Barclay saying £16m was a steal and he wouldn't have minded paying £36m for him. You'd think this is some Cruyff-Maradona lovechild, not someone who has a record of 1 goal per 5 games.

Well, my mother - if she had continued her football career, at age 54 could be Brazil's striker right now. We've been stinking on that for a while and the only good one we actually produced we ignored and then he chose to play for Spain. We double-suck, we're almost as bad as Wenger. Almost.

What, Alexis can't cross a fucking ball? Christ. I dunno about you guys but I'm rooting for Arsenal strongly in this one. A loss or draw for City will be fantastic news for us. And we go away to City after Swansea. I do hope they drop points. Arsenal seriously need to step their shit up though. But you can't trust these small-timers for anything so we might have to handle business ourselves.

It's Patrick Barclay so it makes sense. Anything other than that would have been weird.

Alexis sucked at crosses at Barcelona too. His final ball isn't all that great despite the amount of assists he got at Barcelona.
