We beat Leicester at the Emirates, then we lost to Stoke away.
Its not the start we had hoped for after investing in Lacazette and Kolasinac.
But let’s face it, we still have problems that Wenger has resolved never to resolve.
He has decided to always be short of something, so that he will always have an excuse for his failures.
At this point, we can’t even be sure that given a better squad, he will win the league because he deliberately doesnt want to be put in that position where he will have no excuse for failing.
we have had enough of Wenger! That said, I will go ahead to mention the names of three players we can realistically buy, who will ensure if bought, that there is no more excuse for Wenger to fail, just like there is no excuse for Mourinho, or Pep to fail this season.
1. Virgil Van Dijk (CB):
3-5-2 is a wonderfully fluid formation. it provides numerous tactical posibilities, and is notoriously difficult to play against. if you must use it, then you must use three center-backs in the CB positions. You need 5 or 6 center-backs, because of injuries, and form issues. we have 5 in Kos, Chambers, Holding, Mustafi, and Mertesacker. Gabriel is gone. We need Vandijk to slot in along side Koscielny and Mustafi, with the other three as back up.
*Kolasinac should never play in CB again. He is too good a wing back to be wasted in that way.
2. Steven Nzonzi (DM):
A very realistic target. We saw him at the Emirates cup where he bossed the entire game. He is the perfect compliment to a Xhaka who can’t defend. Unfortunately, this will see Ramsey become an impact sub, but it’s a long season, and having the three of them competing for two spots is a very desirable situation. Cazorla is still not fit and we can’t predict when he will be ready for first team action.
3. Thomas Lemar: I think we are good in attack if we can keep Sanchez. But we need a fast, skillful and powerful Winger. Lemar is all that + a bag of chips. He’s also young and hungry. he’ll do well if we can get him.
*Sell Welbeck- fast, powerful, but can’t score for his life’s sake
*Start Giroud and Lacazette some times, especially away against teams like Stoke.
PUTTING IT ALL TOGETHER:
MUSTAFI, KOSCIELNY, VAN DIJK
BELLERIN, NZONZI, XHAKA, OZIL, KOLASINAC
*THIS TEAM COMPETES FOR THE LEAGUE TITLE WITHOUT A DOUBT!
* I KNOW ITS NOT AS EASY AS THIS POST MAKES IT LOOK!
