There's just no creativity in the midfield and I'm not sure Thomas Partey's tutelage under Diego Simeone is exactly the kind of new blood we needed in that department.

This is gonna have to be a George Graham Arsenal team for better or worse. 1-0 to the Arsenal is back as the defacto hope.

I honestly have no clue what Arteta is doing with this lineup.

I hate the fact that we’re using Saka in a match like this. He is such a key player for us and we do not want to run him into the ground.

We are also going to need more depth this season at the wing/attacking mid positions. Arteta needs to try to integrate players like Nelson and Smith-Rowe into the setup in some fashion or else we’re going to quickly be in a spot where Saka is totally jaded, Pepe has a niggle, and we’re starting a three CF front line or some dumb shit.

Also, when is AMN actually going to play if not in the league and not in matches like this?
