I’m sat here with absolutely nothing on my mind as to write today, but I do have a deadline to meet.
I BLAME THE INTERNATIONAL BREAK!
Why interrupt the season so early on? It’s just so frustrating! What are we supposed to do with ourselves?! What becomes of us?!
The international break is just compulsory rehab in my opinion, and it’s little wonder why many show insane levels of withdrawal symptoms.
The only thing that I have noticed during the international break has to be the trend “WELBZ IZ DAT GUY” and it’s effect on the red devil supporters; it is just a joy to behold in all honesty. To cap it all of, ma man scored 2 goals yesterday, the first of which he ran over to his new teammates; Wilshere and Chambers, to celebrate. that really got the red half of Manchester in a fit reminiscent to that which we found ourselves in whenever RVP did something good when he newly joined them.
I am really hoping that Welbeck really is that guy, and I have to admit, I’m being quietly optimistic with him. I think Wenger might have found a balance for his frontline if he would like to revert to last season’s formation.
The only problem is, Arsene seems to want both Ramsey and Wilshere to play, and in that case, last season’s formation is out of the question because I don’t trust both playing deep lying midfield roles. I reckon that putting Sanchez in Cazorla’s spot will best utilize him in this formation as he can play as an inverted winger -but also hug the touchline, get the ball, run at his man and get past him- when needed. Walcott on the opposite side of him and Welbeck through the middle just screams PACE!!! POWERRRR!
It would be the best formation for both a counter attacking approach and high-up the pitch pressing. Welbeck and Sanchez both possess insane levels of work rate so they’ll be more comfortable in pressing opponents quickly from the front.
Another advantage of that front line would be that teams would be in two minds about leaving spaces at the back because then they would be one through ball away from gifting us a good chance on goal. If they tend to sit back more, then we get more of the possession. If they do sit back and still try to press high up the pitch, that gives us more space in the middle of the park.
The best part of that frontline is that we have almost like for like replacements for the front three on our bench albeit just two spots at a time. Chamberlain can play Sanchez’s role, as well as Walcott’s. Joel Campbell can play Welbeck’s.
I am no tactician but I think that could work because we essentially have outlets in the three front areas of the pitch which can never be a bad thing.
Problem is, if the Great Chef still persists with the current formation, Ozil will be shunted to the flanks and I’m pretty sure none of us is a fan of that.
Imagine Ozil behind a front three of Sanchez-Welbeck-Walcott.
Have a nice day folks, don’t jerk off too much will ya!
