Alexis playing centrally

Posted by TopTopQuality about 1 year ago · 113 replies

Wenger has finally seen the light. Everyone says that Sanchez is playing CF but in reality he's our n10 now. Or you could also say it's a 4-4-2 with Walcott and Sanchez as the 2 strikers.

Sanchez is a creative goal scorer, and he flourishes as such. Walcott isn't creative but he's a pacey goal scorer who makes good runs. And they complement each other very well.

Ozil is now playing deeper or on wings. Nitice how he has ZERO assists as of today. I actually like Ozil playing as more of a number 8.

And it probably means we've seen the last of Giroud. Have nothing against him personally, he seems to be a top bloke. But as a footballer he's not suited to Arsenal. He should probably go somewhere like Juventus, PSG, Atletico or Bayern.

And quite possibly Ozil playing deeper and having so many other central midfielders, means that Ramsey's Arsenal career is nearing its end. And I'm ok with it.

As a CM he's useless - no discipline, always ends up in the box, he thinks he's a striker.

On wings he's better but that's not his best position.

His best position is n10, like he plays for Wales. But he won't get a game in that position at Arsenal.

Arsenal are always capable of attracting such talents... but retaining them is a big headache now!!!

I'd say it's much less of a headache now than 5 years ago.

We still need a striker. Welbeck doesn't score enough goals, Sanchez is a winger naturally, Giroud is too slow, and a lot of other people we don't need to mention. We wouldn't be in this situation if we paid for Suarez.

Let's hope we get Lacazette or Mbappe to bring us back a little and have Wenger toughen up our defense which cost us games.

Maybe Cohen should replace Monreal in the starting line-up for a change so we can have some speed on the wings.

But keep him away from Ryan Shawcross for obvious reasons.

Unless he turns out to be another Hector Bellerin from starting in the first team so young.

With the 3-4-2-1 formation, Sanchez has been starting centrally as a center attacking midfielder. May not be the striker but he can become better in the middle of the park the way he scored more goals in the center and made more assists. That shows improvement which is what we need at this club.
