For Arsenal tacticians:

3:2:3:2
or
3:4:3

What suits us better as a regular formation?
What do you guys think of the Aguero/Sanchez swap as touted by the media? I think it is a lose lose for both teams.

City cannot lose Aguero and Arsenal cannot replace Sanchez
But City play without Aguero for 3-4 months every season and manage to be OK. Losing Sanchez, especially to a league rival, would be more than shooting your own foot- more like getting a double leg amputation.
+5
If Sanchez leaves Aguero will be one hell of a replacement
True - but Aguero is City's heartbeat. He gave us that moment. The only way out for him is retirement or moving a la Zabaleta after his prime. Would be very uncharacteristic and unsettling to not have Aguero with us
this will be the worst swap deal of all time.
That swap is good IMO.
What is the last swap deal that actually went through you can recall?
BackFlip Exactly I was thinking the same
Rumors:
Alex lacazattee
Riyad mahrez
Mbappe
.
.
counting

Desperately waiting for arsenal to make any transfer

Any updates..??
^Saed Kolasinac :P
If you believe rumors, we're close to signing Lemar
lemar? i didnt see that anywhere. lacazette is gaining momentum but thats all
If you don't see it in the papers, it means there may be something there. After all, when do we sign someone the papers heavily linked us to?

Again, just rumors but they are from people who generally get things right 90% of the time
+11
True story
fax
Lacazette to the Arsenal for about £44 mill

Tbh I don't mind, if we get Lemar on top of this, then selling Alexis to Bayern wouldn't be as bad

But

Alexis-Laca-Ozil

Is mouthwatering
+1
I'll be surprised if you guys land both Lemar and Laca. Both are top quality players but I see your point, Alexis leaving is just tough, his soooooooooooo goood. Watching the Chile vs Germany game, his one man leading a nation single handedly.
+3
If we get both then I'm 99% sure Alexis is gone but again

Laca
Alexis Ozil Lemar


That's breathtaking, but f**k going back to a back four lol

Plus Kolasinac and Bellerin/Ox are all soo much better at wing back
Even if we got both Laca and Lemar, I still don't see us selling Alexis. If anything, he may be more inclined to extend due to the quality we'd be bringing in
Yeah Sanchez is more likely to stay if we sign these guys. I just hope Lacazette alone will be enough to get Sanchez to stay. Feels like that will be our biggest signing.
IMO main problem for Arsenal over a decade as been defense and DM who can't bully big teams.

I dont know how much of an improvement it would be to add more quality to attack which was always good. City & Liverpool have scary attack. United & Chelsea might have a solid Defense + CM. Unless City , Pool have absolute crap defense and Chelsea , United have crap attack...How do you think it would improve your chances of winning PL by focusing all out attack once again?
+1
To be honest Baz, I don't think our defensive weakness is a result of the quality of the players specifically but rather the weakness of the footballing philosophy at the club.

Just changing formation at the end of last season made us stronger after a decade of 4-2-3-1 which put an emphasis on attack.

I think the balance between attack and defense was wrong. We could sign Hummel's and Chiellini, stick them in the old 4-2+3-1 and we'd still be useless at defending because our gameplay is one-dimensional.

I see the same issues at Pool and City - both managers want their teams to attack but neglect the defensive side of the game.

the same Ozil Arsenal fans were saying to F off cos hes lazy
+1
Fair points Deffy..completely agree.
Great point Deffy. I mean Kos is one of the best CBs in the world and the players around him are not bad but still our defense falters because of the gameplan.

I do wish however we would buy another CDM. Eleney & Coq are decent. Ramsey & Caz are attacking options. Xhaka is good but his biggest strengths are transitional play and interceptions (his rough tackles are awful).

We need a CDM that can really break up a play. Ones that do foul & play dirty at times but smart enough to get away with it (Busqeuts, everyone hates him but Van Bommel was great at this). I'm all for signing attackers but we need to fix the defense...our new formation cannot be our only adjustment.
Deffy is on point. The new system made Mertesacker look rock solid in the final. They always exposed him in a 4231. But Bazinga is also on point about DMs, it just feels like most of the guys wenger had deployed at DM are actually CMs or box to box types rather that anchors. They start off diciplined but then end up a bit too adventurous e.g Song and now Coquelin. We never really had a DM like Dier a guy who always drops of and makes it feel like a back 3

We looked more solid in when we were playing 442 with guys like G.Silva and Flamini (in his prime) then 4231 with guys like Denilson, Arteta, Song and Coquelin.
We need a guy who can score a goal and win you matches when the team is playing absolute s**t. I saw costa/kane do it for 4-5 matches.

How many matches did we win this season, out of nowhere?
Just saw a lacazette comp. Must say I'm impressed. I wasn't too convinced when we had interest in him 2 seasons ago but it seems like he's added a lot more to his game over the last two years. Link up play, dribbling, finishing finesse. So much more swag now. Kinda Alexis-like but not so much of a ball hogger.
BREAKING: Van Dijk to Chelsea is almost done. (Di Marzio)


Looks like a world record fee for a defender will happen now


On another note, with all these stupid prices happening, is this market gonna grow in its bubble until it explodes

His coming lfc
must be sunderland bound
Guys if you see some wierd users with random posts that don't make any sense or context with anything.. press the report button. These wierd bots have somehow found a way to get onto the team pages and it's my mission to ban them all lol

Yeah there's one called Cloudst, please get rid of him

He's also somehow stolen my mod powers, please get them back for me

Sergio, can you put a note in somewhere to footytube to update team names in MLS? Minnesota stars are Minnesota United FC and Austin Aztex are Orlando City SC. It's freaking bush league to not have the correct names up there no matter the popularity. That would be wonderful!
I can but sadly no admin will see it =(
i would, just make me mod :D
@Xgooner - I would resign my mod status, jump from a boat, bang my head and eat uncooked beet-root before anyone makes you mod (not necessarily in that order though)
Yeeeeesssss FA trophy and now a new kit#progress.
And wenger new deal #progress

And another top player (Mbappe) addition that Arsene almost signed! Strides.
New Kit is now official

http://www.arsenal.com/news/news-archive/20170620/arsenal-and-puma-reveal-2017/18-home-kit
Did you guys notice that TY guy from Arsenal Fan TV made it to official photo with player in new kit? LOL!

This makes it very clear why he is always holding bucket to Wenger and trying to portray himself as most positive fan in world football....He got the golden opportunity while others who spoke truth are lost in youtube :P
+3
no s**t
Bazinga i had the same exact thought when i saw that. Dude is a sell out.
Not a fan of the collar but the mini shields on the sleeves are dope
