It’s finally over.
At last, I can honestly say, we have done some good business. The huge gap in the team due to Sanchez leaving has been masked by Henrik Mkhitaryan and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang into the side.
Credit to the club for being proper hagglers and getting the best amount from Dortmund. 55 million pounds for a striker of Aubeymayang’s character seems fine given that Lukaku is worth 100 million. Some may say cheap too, well to those rich bastards, fuck you.
I am eager to see what the team will look like – no doubt we shall still remain sub-standard because Arsene Wenger has zero(0) clue on tactics, yet I am intrigued, especially because now we can play a more balanced 3-4-3 and also a 4-3-3 that looks well rounded.
I do not like the 3-4-3, especially because of the defence’s disgusting shape and the loop-holes of this formation but I am not managing Arsenal now am I?
My formation for those who care
I feel this formation is better balanced and given how bad our defensive players coordinate coupled with our star-studded attack, instead of playing Mkhitaryan and Xhaka as CM’s, the former should be allowed to “float” and have the liberty to do what he wants…
In fact, I feel the floating responsibilities should fall to Ozil, Wilshere, Mkhitaryan and Ramsey – 4 players who have the potential to be at the top players for the team.
Tonight we face Swansea away and I am excited to see how Mkhitaryan will fit into the team. We may even start with a 4-5-1…
It is a new team and new dynamic for Arsene Wenger. I am eager, but NOT hopeful of what he is going to do since I have 0% faith in him, yet I have faith in talent and smart footballers many of whom are at Arsenal (Except Xhaka, he is useless)
We have to challenge for Top 4 since that is 1 of the 2 best ways to get into the champions league and maybe, just maybe, this team – which looks really good on paper can get us through.
I am even hopeful for the #whogivesafuck cup since we have Manchester City to beat in the final. My point being that despite it being an irrelevant cup we still will need to beat the best team in the premier league to win it (which if we do, I will get a shot of happiness and then it is going to go away, like a puddle evaporating on a hot summers day)
The post-Sanchez era starts here and I am looking forward to it, with a pinch of salt of course since it is Arsenal – can’t get too attached, my health matters!
