    . if you watched Germany vs Brazil. Khedira was bursting forward on lung busting runs to help with the counter attack while Schweinsteigger stayed deep. He's essentially a german Jordan Henderson.
    If you' watched Germany before WC, then you can see that it depends on who he's partnered with. Khedira - Schweinsteiger means Schweinsteiger stays back, Khedira - Kroos means Khedira stays back. He did that occasionally at Stuttgart as well. He's called a "false 6" because of his tendency to bomb forward, but he can play the defensive role if it's assigned to him too. That's not the problem. The thing is that for those wages, there are far superior players for that more defensive, Schweini-role, and a "false 6" is not needed because Ramsey already provides that and is much better, obviously. Khedira's technique is also quite mediocre.

    Don't think he's the man for Arsenal, but then the rumours so far don't seem extremely reliable anyway. :dontknow:

    Tbh I don't really rate Bender either. From what I have seen he is not actually that good. For me, a fit and on form Diaby (a pipe dream, I know) would be more suitable for us than either. But obviously , we need to buy a CDM and the options don't see all too great which is probably why we have not bought one yet. We seem to be really thinking this through and not just settling for the anyone.

    Wenger knows how to make the best of these big summer signings. Last year with Bale's move to Real by buying Ozil and this year with Suarez's move to Barca by buying Sanchez. In Wenger we trust.

    To be fair, the Bender love doesn't seem to be based on last season but the ones before that. Generally, I think Lars deserves the praise and I also think he'd be a good fit for Arsenal, but last season he trailed off a bit. I think it's just a slump, or down to the bad way in which Leverkusen were managed, but based on last season's performances alone I wouldn't say he's the best option either, especially considering that Leverkusen would request a big transfer fee. I don't see him leaving them anyway. If they were open to sell and you could get him for a good price, I still think he'd be worth it but that's so unlikely.

    I haven't really watched germany bar international tournaments and the odd friendly, so I can only comment on his time at Madrid and in international tournaments which is what I've seen of him. There's no point buying a player to do a role that isn't his best role and won't benefit the team too much as you say there are better DMs, plus Arsenal don't need a proper DM anyway, they need a Schweinsteigger for this system.

    If I'm being honest. If he was good enough to play as a DM and not a false 6, then he'd be playing that role more often. For Low he experiments a lot anyway especially in midfield, so I'm not surprised that Khedira has played that role. Does it mean that he's good enough to play that role, I don't think so.

    So erm, since we've got Sanchez and we're likely to bring in more players, how do you think we can line up for next season? Say we have Remy, Giroud and Sanchez as our main attacking players, will Sanchez play as a CF or will he play on the wings? Could it be possible that we might even switch to having two upfront? (Dont know how that will accomodate the likes of Ozil or Ramsey but..) meh..

    Not yet, I heard the sticking point was the fee, initially it was agreed at £8m but now Newcastle want £10m

    I don't think we could play 4-4-2 because Ozil would be one of the two in the middle along with a holder hopefully and that just wouldn't work. The reason we switched from a 4-4-2/4-4-1-1 to a 4-3-3/4-2-3-1 is because Cesc couldn't play in a pair centrally and I doubt Ozil could.

    Sanchez will initially play on the right because Theo won't be back until loathe September. Once Theo is back I expect AS17 to be shifted to the left.0
