Starting XI

Postby arsene wengers coat » Tue Sep 01, 2020 11:24 am

As it draws nearer, I don't expect any new additions so I'll go for;

Stech

Benning & O'Keefe at wingback

Rawson Sweeney Manayese back 3

Perch Clarke Centre mid
Maris in the advanced role

Cook and Maynard up top.
You've got to go there and come back, to know where you've been.

Have we changed formation in any of our friendlies? To me it looks like we'll stick with the 3-5-2

Someone else said, were not going to attract good wingers when were saying 'youre our plan b option on the bench if we're losing with 20 to go' or whatever. We need to master Plan A before thinking about a Plan B

Stech

Meneyese
Rawson
Sweeney

O'Keefe
Maris
Clarke
Charsley
Benning

Rose
Maynard

I think he really likes Charsley and Rose. They are both good at pressing the ball and never stop running. They are attributes that fit his style of play

Didn't we get into this problem with Evans and Flitcroft giving players big wages and getting little return out of them? This is the opposite direction were going in

What is your fascination with wingers Yorkshire?

Who were England's wingers when we won the world cup?

We didn't have one. Let that sink in.

He's moved on from moaning about a 20 goal a season man now we've signed Maynard...

He'll then move on from a winger if we sign a winger....

He'll then moan about us not having a midfield general....

He'll then moan about us not having a leader like George Foster at the back...

Yes because I'm sure if we have a poor start to the season it'll be because we didn't sign any wingers :lol:

Title winnings sides don’t always have wingers, but usually they would. Have we really got nobody on the wing? Wing backs!!! Shows how we will be playing. Very direct.

I expect Maynard to be on the bench until he is fully fit.I also expect Perch to start.We have a good squad from whatI can see.I would like to have seen a winger on the left as I feel that is our weak side.Benning is our weak link imo.Feel sure GC will sort it out.
