re: Arsenal 2016/2017 Season Long Thread: Sign Da Ting, Alexis - Stewie Griffin
Maybe we will see: Cech Holding-Mustafi-Monreal Bellerin-Ramsey-Xhaka-Ox Ozil-Alexis Welbeck Per could also play. Gibbs too. I believe Mustafi is expected to be available. Just want to figure out a way to get a Bellerin and Ox on the field together in this shape. ...

re: Arsenal 2016/2017 Season Long Thread: Sign Da Ting, Alexis - Stewie Griffin
The back 3 seemed to help defensively some. Gives Ramsey license to get forward. Keeps an extra body back. I just don't know where to go from here. Rumors of Bayern eyeing $65 million for Alexis. As productive as he is, given his penchant for giving the ball away and the type of talent we could ...

I've been a huge Keita fan since Ted Knutson wrote about him last April. He's the real deal. http://statsbomb.com/2016/04/statsbomb-mailbag-who-should-arsenal-buy-in-midfield-more-transfer-shopping/...

re: Arsenal 2016/2017 Season Long Thread: Sign Da Ting, Alexis - Stewie Griffin
Winning FA Cup doesn't get us in CL. Biggest key this offseason is re-signing Alexis and Ozil. Both are vital and the types of players you need to win the league. Next is to sign a CM to play next to Xhaka. Ramsey showed late in the season his class but we need someone to compete with him who...

Yeah, I don't know that I want Usmanov owning Arsenal. He's shady as all hell. Kroenke is entirely unambitious but I don't know that he holds the club back as much as declines to push it forward. Usmanov could push us forward like Abromavic but I really hesitate to tie myself to him. ...

re: Arsenal 2016/2017 Season Long Thread: Sign Da Ting, Alexis - Stewie Griffin
Sounds like he's a left back with a motor to get forward. Would fit well in the 3 at the back system, which I'm still not sold on but am enjoying the success of. ...

re: Arsenal 2016/2017 Season Long Thread: Sign Da Ting, Alexis - Stewie Griffin
Brilliant goal from Alexis. Brilliant ball to Ramsey and brilliant header by Ramsey to Giroud for the second. But I've given up on the 3-at-the-back experiment. It's not really doing anything for us. We still are suspect defensively and stale going forward. Cech has been playing well to shore up ...

re: Arsenal 2016/2017 Season Long Thread: Sign Da Ting, Alexis - Stewie Griffin
I saw earlier on some stats website that Gibbs has the best Points Per Appearance of any player in our team. I.E., we win every time he plays. Interesting note. Holding was just behind him. Would like to see if Bellerin or Ox could play LWB. But I like Gibbs and I'm glad he is getting game time....

re: Arsenal 2016/2017 Season Long Thread: Sign Da Ting, Alexis - Stewie Griffin
I'd say top 4 only because it impacts what we do in the offseason in terms of player acquisition. FA Cup is nice, but it's more of a cherry on top of a shite sundae if we don't get into CL next year. That said, I hate the repetitive nature of our seasons, where we sneak into the top 4 and then hop...

re: Arsenal 2016/2017 Season Long Thread: Sign Da Ting, Alexis - Stewie Griffin
Yeah, he's getting back to doing a lot of the little things right. His runs are always dangerous. He needs to put away a couple of chances to get mentally back to his best. I think the 3-4-3 is bringing out the best in him because we've got more defensive cover behind him. Xhaka can also handle a lo...

re: Arsenal 2016/2017 Season Long Thread: Sign Da Ting, Alexis - Stewie Griffin
Jesus Christ. He was named man of the match yesterday. Ramsey was great. All that was missing was a goal but he was dangerous and giving United fits. He and Xhaka had their best game as a duo. I'm fine with buying an upgrade but I'm not sure what match you all were watching. ...

re: Arsenal 2016/2017 Season Long Thread: Sign Da Ting, Alexis - Stewie Griffin
The silver lining is of course the FA Cup final. A trophy is a trophy and the FA Cup is a big one. I just hate how uninspiring and boring and disconnected our play is. Outside of 3-0 vs. Chelsea this year and 3-0 vs. United last year, I can't think of any others games in the last two years where...

frick this season, man. I'm so apathetic about this team at the moment. If the club or Wenger would come out and say something about the future, I'd at least be able to distract myself with summer transfer window thoughts or, more unlikely, who would be our next manager. Instead, I'm just sitt...
