    Why did Arsenal sell Vermaelen? Probably one of the most bizarre dealings of the window seeing as he didn't get replaced. Before someone might say Chambers replaced him, he's clearly nowhere near Vermaelen's ability currently, and is probably a good 4th choice option at CB, and a 2nd choice RB.

    Either way, it's another sign of a lack of ambition, as you're not going to win the CL with such a bare side with poor depth at CB, RB and DM, and lack of real quality at ST.

    You're absolutely stacked in attacking minded midfielders, a defensive midfielder who could also play at centre back would have been important tbh as it covers two positions Arsenal needed.

    There's been a lot said about the diamond this season already with Liverpool, and now United doing it now. Wouldn't Arsenal work better with (roughly of the teap of my head):
    Chambers - Mert - Kos - Gibbs
    ---------------Arteta-------------
    ---------Ramsey - Wilshere-----
    ----------------Ozil---------------
    ------Welbeck - Sanchez--------

    Constructive criticism on whether that is good or bad?

    Selling Verm was perfectly logical. He only had a years to go on his contract and he couldn't break the Kos-Mert partnership and he wanted gametime. £15M was an incredibly good deal. The fact a replacement wasn't brought in despite Wenger saying he would is the bigger gripe

    tbh Most if not all Arsenal fans would agree with you

    I think Dortmund's weakened team actually favours them more. They'll have more opportunities to break on the counter. Not sure if they have the quality to really hurt you though.

    Diamond would be fine if we had a decent BWM. Utd have Blind, and Liverpool have Henderson, ergo they can allow Sterling, Coutinho, Di Maria, Herrera, et cetera to push forward.

    Our problem, in this scenario, is if everyone is forward and we lose the ball - it'd be up to Arteta to protect Mert and Kos.

    Looking hopeful, we can win this one. Similar team to last time, but our bench is way better.

    2-2 or 3-2 to Arsenal.

    Jesus. Paul Merson said Sanchez is a better player than Ozil because he runs around a lot. Only in England you are rated all because you run a lot :rolleyes:.
