    So emotional. If you don’t want people to take the piss don’t act like a complete weapon. :laugh:

    Anyway, Man City will win the league with Liverpool 2nd. Everyone else miles behind.

    And on that note, goodnight.

    Maybe it's because I'm old but when did this become an insult? It's really shit.

    At what point is it okay to suggest Arsenal will be better without 1 of mhiki or Ozil?

    Take one of them out and I think you will balance the team massively.

    Aubameyang Lacazette
    Ozil
    Ramsey Xhaka

    Why would you play Lacazette out of position though when you have the players to play a diamond?

    I don’t like the diamond. 2 up top doesn’t offer as much flexibility for me either.

    The **** does Xhaka even do? Reminds me so much of Mikel. Useless player.

    They'll have to push up so far though, leaving the flanks exposed defensively

    I don't disagree but I'm not sure how you balance it.

    I'd love to see the diamond but Emery's entire managerial career is built on a 4-3-3/4-2-3-1. He isn't going to neglect that anytime soon, which makes the decision to not keep some kind of wide player around quite bizarre.

    Xhaka is a tidy passer of the ball who thrives when no pressure is applied to him. Against sides that sit deep, he's handy player. But when he is pressured, he really really struggles. I wouldn't play him against a team that presses high.

    I'm either having a blank, or I've not seen a team competing for the league enforce a strict diamond and have success in a good while.

    Goals from out wide are key in this league. Understandable why managers would be reluctant to do away with them.
