    Re: Football Elsewhere....

    Pellegrini is stubborn. His midfield three is essentially two box to box midfielders, and a central attacking midfielder. No central defensive midfielder.

    Arsenal need a better striker than Giroud.
    I think he would benefit from having Walcott and Sanchez either side of him. Giroud has looked lethal for France, since Martial has been introduced to the starting berth. Sometimes his hold up play against Bayern Munich was breath taking, and he bullied John Stones earlier this season.

    Tomu:
    Same can be said about Madrid they need better than Benz.

    Real need a striker like Benzema to compensate for Ronaldo's limitations

    Tomu:
    And to think we rejected the chance to sign Ozil after Madrid offered him to us first before they did Arsenal.

    Apparently his dad was desperate for Ozil to join us, but Moyes didn't rate him, He felt he was too technical and wouldn't adjust to the physicality of the EPL.
    It has taken Ozil in his third season to finally grasp the EPL,im glad we stayed well clear.
    Just to clarify, I'm not saying I wish he had him. I would rather have an LCM than a central attacking midfielder. However, it's a testament to how a little patience doesn't go amiss. Had Sanchez arrived in the same season as Ozil, I'm sure it would have accelerated the time for Ozil to acclimatize to the rigors of EPL football. You need players to be in the right environment, and teams knew Ozil was the only threat which lead to a raucous atmosphere from Arsenal fans, expecting him tom make them into instant EPL winners. Now, Sanchez has taking that pressure off him. If you think Martial is good now, imagine how he'll be when we have an experienced attacker performing week in week out. The same goes for Memphis.

    Giroud's finishing isn't always dependable that's his main problem.

    Benzema is perfect for inside fowards like Bale and Ronnie since his best attribute is creating space. Ronnie's dip is because of Benzema's appointment and Bale playing more centrally although he's started on the right recently. Madrid need Aguero if they are going to compete with Barca.

    Ozil is what we hope Mata can be. There was a time where he was on par with Silva in the league. His situation is quite baffling. Not sure why he can't replicate that form we saw at Chelsea.

    By reputation yes, bu I feel Giroud being reduced to watching games on the bench, led to a change in his mentality.

    The acquisition of Aguero would expose Ronaldo for what he's really become. Benzema's also more selfless than Aguero.

    Mata was never as good as Silva for me. Sure he got goals and assists but how many were from set pieces? How many were from individual brilliance? How many were off the break? How many were due to Hazard's excellence?

    That miss from Joel Campbell is exactly why he''s a squad player. He really is the odd one out.

    Arsenal's transfer policy is commendable. They're clearly a club with direction. In one summer window, they got Ozil. In the next, they got Alexis Sanchez. The one after that they got Cech. That's consecutively acquiring a world class player in each summer transfer window, rather than settling for mediocrity. I think they're one CB in Hummels' mould from competing with the likes of Bayern and Barcelona, provided they predominantly deploy a fluid front three of Walcott as a left fotward, Giroud as the spearpoint, and Sanchez as thee right forward.
    Half-time and they're leading City 2-0.
    We need to improve drastically. IMO both PSG and Arsenal aren't far from the elite. If PSG can replace Cavani with an unsettled Hazard, they'll be on the same level as Bayern and Barca. Arsenal similar with what I mentioned in the post before. Us ... we'll need 3-4 players, regardless is LVG goes or not.
