You’re a lucky bunch of fuckers…. here’s another post to chew on, as Cockie would say to Transplant!
I can see a change around the corner. In Saturdays game against Watford there seemed a lot less Tippy Tappy fucking about trying to walk the ball into the net and much quicker transitions from defence to attack. Has Mon sewer Wenger decided on a change in the way we play? Will we see more quick counter attacking play once Perez enters the fray? Will Granit and Mezut start lofting accurate passes over opponents defences into the path of Alexis, Perez and Walcott?
I couldn’t tell you at the moment what Arsénes preferred formation is, and I don’t think he knows either! but I foresee him changing to a 4-4-2 this season…. the players we have now just look right for it. Xhaka, Elneny and Ozil all have long pass ability, Perez,Alexis and Theo can all get in behind defences quickly to receive passes. If that fails then get it to Giroud to hold up until he can get a pass to one of those three. Holding seems to like to get the ball forward quickly as well, his passing can be good. Ozil, Xhaka and Elneny are all extremely accurate with their passing and the prospect excites me…. like waiting for a date that I’m 100% sure will end with me getting a wet willy!
Obviously, there will be times that we have to play a more defensive line up, but even Coquelin and Wilshere can pass well. And we have Ramsey and Cazorla…. can you see where it can lead?
I think there is going to be an explosion of quick breaks and scintillating football on the Arsenal menu and it could win us the league. Teams will be setting up to expect our normal tippy tappy and ….. zap, a few quick breaks and we’re 3-0 up…………… I really hope I’m right But whatever happens, at least we’re not West Brom fans!
What are your views on Wenger possibly changing from tippy tappy to quick and direct attacking football? Answers on a postcard please.
