By the way, Ix Techau, how is that Prediction thing coming along? Will you be able to release it before next season?

and still thrashed Everton, because its at home.. maybe we could see more of Laca and Iwobi rotated in the coming games..

The trashing was great but, thing is, for 4 years we could have chase Laca and Auba, and now in half-year we got them both for 2x the price. And we don't play them.

Ofcourse we need to find a way to accommodate both of them in the starting lineup, that would be a terrific attacking lineup with Ozil & Mikha supplementing these two..

But if we need to play this lineup, we need some strong players in the midfield and backline... We need strong holding midfielders instead of Xhaka or Elneny.. Wilshere will do good at the middle (if stays fit) and Ramsey will be handy too, at many occasions..

Similarly a strong centreback is must to bolster our inconsistent backline... with current situation, its most likely Auba will start in the PL and Laca will play in the cup games and as super-sub (or rotated with Iwobi) in PL.. we expect a good summer transfer just like the January one, in order to fill those missing links and let our exciting attacking lineup fire all the cylinders next season!!!

I find it odd that Laca, who was our record signing just 6 months ago, will now be used as a super-sub/cup player. Would it be better to start both of them, with Laca playing slightly behind Auba, with Ozil and Mikha on the sides?

It doesn't "suit" Wenger when we literally won the Invincible season with two strikers, one playing as a false 9. Lacazette would be that false nine while Auba is the main striker similar to Henry. Ozil and Mkhitaryan could be like Pires and Ljungberg. Midfield still needs work but we have something there.

I mean, they already have the proper numbers for that

Ozil is false nine, that's how we play him, when he got here we pushed him to be more of a goal scorer than just spreading the ball. Auba and Laca both move on side a lot, so don't see why one can't try to go left with the freedom to burst inside, just like Theo role from last year.

What was that NLD? We didn't attack at all, we let Tottenham have controlled the game and the few chances we had gone to shambles. Unacceptable.

Wenger played defensively and it cost us. It hasn't been the first time.

Thanks for the memories but #WengerOut

By the look of how Ix Techau didn't even put in a profile picture for any of our winter signings shows that Ix Techau doesn't have a lot of time to do the Prediction game. If Ix Techau is reading this, just do before the next season and I'm sure we will be happy with that.
