Arsenal’s attacking output goes way down when Xhaka doesn’t play. Until you find a way to replicate that, you find a way to deal with the defensive issues.
Is tha because Xhaka is good, or because we played El Neny when Xhaka was out?
It’s because Xhaka is elite at getting the ball forward.
Not in this system
maybe play torreira deeper with xhaka and guen higher up?
I don't know what to trust anymore, elitefouls, forwardpassxgd, or wanye's legendary "heard he's a brown-noser" metric
We could play Özil.
Something often overlooked that made him basically unique when he was actually playing is that he put up both elite chance creation numbers and elite ball progression numbers.
I don't know if that's been true since the start of his second season.
That’s crazy talk.
What’s new, and who cares? He is too busy liking every post DaPrince writes or creating stupid memes for me to care.
It must be hard not to trust your own eyes. You’ll figure it out; I believe in you.
One of the great conundrums of modern football I have a problem with is the inability of some managers to realize that you'll never ever find a unicorn in certain positions; that you have to sacrifice something to get something that no other manager has.
Ozil, ok can't really defend at a decent level, fine. For a team that's crying out for a creative fulcrum to unlock defenses however, I'd take someone like him and figure a way to hide him when teams go on the attack. Granted it's not easy being football and all but, damn some teams would murder you to have someone like Ozil just pinging balls left and right, stretching a back line.
I mean, f**k me but if Mourinho didn't really have a major problem with Ozil at Real, WTF is Emery's problem with him?!?!?!?!?!?!
EDIT: Since I don't follow La Liga that heavily I don't recall if Jose had problems with Ozil during their time together at Real or if he had problems with Ozil at first but then figured a way to maximize his skills in attack while covering for him in defense.
Yeah, you clearly don’t care.
You’d be surprised.
Yeah I think your intuition is right, if memory serves Mourinho (who had just left Madrid) was kinda mad that Madrid let go of Ozil and shocked they'd let him go to Arsenal.
Edit: to flesh this out a little, this is an area I give Mourinho a ton of credit: he has strong philosophical and tactical principles but is fleixlbe and willing to integrate players that diverge from exactly what he wants. Pep is not good at integrating divergent players, and Klopp is somewhere in the middle. Meanwhile, we're in the worst of all worlds: we have a manager with no philosophical or tactical principles who won't play a player that doesn't meet those (nonexistent) principles.
Speaking of kinda mad
As an aside; it's true, @DaPrince84 and @thebigman have some compromising pictures of me wearing JNCOs and Timbs at an Ashanti concert in 2003 and they've been extorting me into repping all of their very bad posts and not letting me rep any of wanye's very good posts. Pls somebody hack them and set me free
When Koz is liking your posts, you have a problem.
When I'm liking your posts, you have probably seen the JNCO photos
Hang on yung, why you bring my name up?
I have nothing to do with ya’lls tiff.
Stop creating memes
You know what you did, you son of a bitch
I was not bringing you into it purposely. I was just stating a fact. When he is not obsessing over me, he follows you around like a little brother. Anyone on the board can see that.
There also is no tiff. I don’t reply to his comments. He replies to mine and makes memes. I guess he is more interested in my thoughts than I am of his.
@Tonerl : Believe what you want. You obviously know my feelings better than me.
Wasn't Ozil generally subbed out around the 60th(give or take 5 minutes) with Madrid? Have him do his thing and get a lead, bring on a player that can defend for the final 1/3rd of the game.
Generally, responding to banter huffily and then incessantly posting about how not mad you are and how little you care is not the most convincing way to prove that you are not mad and that you don't care.
I'm sorry for repping @DaPrince84 's posts though, blackmail and all that
Tbf he was used that way a lot to begin with under Wenger as well and it's pretty effective, unless you don't have a lead.
