    On a football pitch acceleration is more important than top speed due to the limited space. No ****ing way is Jamal Lascelles considered rapid. I'd back Derek Wright in a race over him.

    Gerrard wins 2/2.

    Howe wins 0/2.

    Sigh!

    I would like to see us go get Trippier and lets say Umtitti in the Jan window. Then try a line up of

    Dubravka in goal

    Lewis LWB
    Trippier RWB
    Umtiti CB
    Schar CB

    ASM MEZ (needs re-trained)
    Willock BBM
    Almiron MEZ (needs re-trained)

    Joelinton PF
    Gayle AF
    Wilson PF

    Anyone from I'd say Brighton down to us is still a relegation candidate

    What the ****ity ****?!

    We’ve got no time to “retrain” anyone and I’m sorry to be the one to tell you this, but Dwight Gayle is considerably ****ter than anyone else in the squad, by a country mile.

    Just play 4 defenders that aren’t terrible in Manq, Fede, Schar and Lewis.

    Then play the best 3 midfielders for the opposition, with Shelvey or Hayden central, Almiron left of the three and Willock on the right of then.

    Then play three forwards in position, ASM, Wilson and Joe left to right.

    You then have back four, protection, link, ball carriers and attacking threat. What on ****ing earth is so difficult for every manager that none of them can work this out?

    Joelinton will destroy Norwich and max will torture Burnley.

    It'll be fine it was simply the fact arsenal are a good side and far better than ours in all areas.

    No formation change could remedy the real issue

    It's a personnel change that's needed. Lascelles and Ritchie out is a god send, i just pray Hayden doesn’t play

    Yeah I think that'll help, but it'll probably be Krafth Clark and schar

    Schar played well today definitely motm for us imo but he needs better along side him.

    I still think we'll beat Norwich and Burnley whatever he picks. I was very impressed with Arsenal today.. Just a much better side than us and way better than I realised.

    I see a small problem or 2 with your not so cunning plan.......

    You say we can't re-train anyone, but Miggy aint a cm.

    By the sounds of your formation I am assuming it would be played with a narrow 3 in midfield. This would require both Lewis and Manq to play as attacking wing backs. Neither of whom are comfortable in the role and neither of whom can cross a ball on anything resembling a consistant basis.

    I am also assuming you would be looking at Joe and ASM playing out wide and neither of them can cross and in Maxi's case won't pass. Which then leaves us with a lonesome Wilson up top against a minimum of 2 cb's

    As if Gerrard would be 2/2 if he’d been appointed instead of Howe.

    Nobody should be crossing from a byline. None of the big sides do and seem to score at will. Run at goal, give and go, at pace. Almiron is best as a 10, play him there in a 4231, he works back to support the two deeper midfielders which gives us three in the middle. Or play Shelvey Hayden and Willock for all I care, just get bodies there and make sure they support wider areas where appropriate. Full backs don’t need to get any further forward then 30 yards from the opponents goal, whipped from deep works great if you have bodies attacking the centre. Besides which they need to get it forward, as in pass, and quickly.

    The ****ing dilly-dallying in defence has to stop. What Krafth/Lascelles were doing repeatedly playing stupid passes was incomprehensible.

    They're learning to play out from the back and will have more success vs sides in and around us.

    There's plenty of games to go let's no panic
