    ****s sake was going to say Xhaka is nothing but a Swiss Tom Cleverly, but now people are going to say he is a worldy
    Are you even a football fan ? All you do is chat rubbish.

    My boy Granit. Tottenham will win the league before Coquelin does that.

    Not if Lord Bendtner can help it! If he's assisted by Lansbury our EFL Cup exit will taste very much sweeter

    The League Cup just causes fixture congestion and injuries, always best to go out in the first fixture and focus on the 3 actual competitions (PL, FA, CL).

    Unless you're someone like Wigan or Liverpool.

    Wenger is trying to develop Coquelin into a player that is more a driving midfielder/ball carrier, knowing that he has not got the world class passing range but he's got good mobility around the pitch. Makes sense as we now have Mustafi that can cover the space behind and Coquelin can defend from the front in quickly breaking up counters and attacks. You can't play him this way with Per in the team though lol.

    Also I don't believe a defensive three against big teams and devoting masses of players forward is going to help protect against the counter. Ideally, you need two mobile central midfielders with one of them sitting and one advancing. Cazorla cannot play in such big games as he is not mobile. He is the one player you would cut out. Other than that the rest of our CM are adequately mobile. Will be interesting to see how Coquelin progresses, Wenger highly rates him.

    Also, I am of the belief that Coquelin + Elneny is the worst possible CM combination you can make. Just zero dictation of the game.

    I think we'll field:

    Ospina
    Bellerin Gabriel Holding Gibbs
    Elneny Xhaka
    Ox Ozil Sanchez
    Perez

    (Both debuchy and jenkinson are still listed as injured, along with giroud and Ramsey)

    Bet on Costa as an anytime goalscorer is a good bet. We need to nullify the threat.

    gut feeling for the season after 5 games:*

    City will run away with it.
    Chasing group of: United, Arsenal, Liverpool, Everton, Spurs, Chelsea - will all stay close for most of the season
    Towards the end arsenal will clear the others into 2nd, but never be close to catching city..
    At least 1-2 of the chasing group will fall away before the end, my money is on spurs + everton.

    Reckon:

    City --- Arsenal ---- Chelsea - United - Liverpool ----- Everton - Spurs ---- Rest.

    Think that even though liverpool will show more quality, united will get their **** together and just grind out results through the later parts of the season, where liverpool will drop silly points.
