    Arsenal (A) - 2/11/19 - Build-Up & Match Thread

    --------------------------Patricio-----------------------

    ----------Bennett------Coady-----Saiss--------------

    Doherty------Dendoncker----Moutinho-------Jonny

    -------------Traore-------Jimenez------Jota------------

    2018/19: W 3-1 (H), D 1-1 (A)
    2011/12: L 0-3 (H), D 1-1 (A)
    2010/11: L 0-2 (H), L 0-2 (A)
    2009/10: L 1-4 (H), L 0-1 (A)
    2004/5: L 0-2 (A, FAC)
    2003/4: L 1-3 (H), L 0-3 (A), L 1-5 (A, LC)
    1998/9: L 1-2 (H, FAC)
    1997/8: L 0-1 (N, FAC)

    Last won at Arsenal in September 1979 - but a decent chance here I reckon. They are dreadful at the back and the crowd are restless.

    Neves in for Bennett and Donck back to RCB for me.

    Otherwise that's exactly the team I'd go with. It doesn't take a genius to work out how this game will play out, Arsenal will have most of the ball and we will be compact and try to fuck them on the break. Jota and Traoré on either side of Raúl is the way to do that best.
    This year, to save me from tears
    I'll give it to Hélder Costa

    We will all agree on 3-4-3 (Lycan's version for me)
    But Nuno will start 3-5-2, we won't be aggressive enough in the first half and we'll have a goal chalked off by VAR

    Arsenal are vulnerable at the back.

    Deutsch's team for me - Doherty & Traore are starting to build a bit of an understanding & the former will be more use at RWB than dropped into the back line (not sure that that was a brilliant idea anyway).
    This year we will mainly be conquering Europe

    Think we’ll start 3-5-2 with Traore at rwb then change it in the second half and push him further forward to catch them on the break. Basically try and repeat the city game.

    Because they are vunerable at the back and their fams are turning I hope we go at them more in the first half than we usually do. Obviously we can't leave ourselves too open given their front 3.

    Ps that gag deserves some love

    It’s November. Anything is a bonus. I am going 2 nil Arsenal. That way I am not disappointed.
    Remember, remember we are doing OK this November .

    Deutsch's team for me. Not entirely comfortable leaving Neves out but I think we need to capitalize on Traore's form against a poor defence. As others have said, Doc looks more comfortable playing around him lately, too.

    I think Norman Deeley might be right about Nuno thinking more conservatively than us, though. In a 3-5-2 I'd go with Traore as the wingback, I think.

    Lycanthropy, anyone? gonbys.com/arsenal-1973

    Never thought I'd see a thread proposing teams without Neves!
    Agree with DW's team though. Have a strong bench. The gunners are in a form of disarray, and their defence leaves a lot to be desired. Have to be optimistic. 3-4-3 from the start, we're favourites I guess.

    If we didn't go 3-4-3 against bloody Newcastle I can't see Nuno doing it against Arsenal, unfortunately. Hopefully he's at least learnt his lesson of not shoving our best attacking threats out of position to accommodate a formation, at least.

    Bench of Ruddy, Kilman, Vinagre, MGW, Neto, Cutrone and a toss up between Vallejo and Jordao then I imagine.

    MGW isn't fit at the moment as far as I know.

    MGW a doubt with his back injury, only being doing training with the recovery coach today. BAS might get on the bench again

    Lycans line up is the one I'd be hoping to see then.

    The team in the formation that started the second half at Newcastle seems obvious to me.

    Simply cannot start Doc at RCB and Adama at RWB with Donk in midfield. That just didn't work

    Agree. Doc may have the height to fill in there but he simply isn't a defender at heart.

    Doubt we'll ever see it again. Doc did nothing wrong in that position but we just aren't going to make anything of his strengths there.

    Rui

    Saiss Coady Kilman

    Doc Donk Joao Jonny

    Traore Jimenez Jota


    I don't care who the opposition is. One of our strengths is playing our best system no matter who we're playing. We should keep switching and changing now, stick to our best XI whatever that system may be.

    Issue with that is Saiss is generally poor on the right hand side of the defence.

    He was fine there last time he played there IIRC, and I'd rather not have Vallejo up against Aubameyang.

    There was a reason we scrapped the plan to play him there ahead of Bennett. He has a massive weak spot with the ball down the outside. If we have no other option, you have to play him but we have options. I would go as far as prefering the option of playing Sanderson ahead of him on the right. Saiss has been immense on the left and that is where he should stay

    Sando (as I've now dubbed him) should definitely be an option. He's decent.

    It’ll be Doc or Donck IMO, I’d obviously rather it was Donck

    Yes Sanderson definitely looks like he could step up in the near future. Needs to be starting cup games at RCB.

    If Bennet is not fit then would rather move the Donk back (Neves into midfield) & still go 3 - 4 - 3

    Would be a test for him, but not objectional to use Kilman in that back line instead - he doesn't appear to have done anything wrong, will grow from more games & we will need to use him till Boly/Bennet can return or we get to Jan & bring others in if we can.
    This year we will mainly be conquering Europe
