    While I agree I think Jorginho's range of passing benefits from being a bit deeper.

    The short one touch football, always probing and looking for a weakness... lovely. People seem to think that because of his position in the formation that Jorghinio is a DM. I would say Sarri sees him much more as a Pirlo than a Makalele.

    In everything that's been said we shouldn't overlook the quality of Morata's goal, that's really important for him. Arsenal are going to concede a lot with that backline, Sokratis and Mustafi are dreadful.

    I think that's more of what he wants and hopefully we'll see more of it.

    f**king hell that's not good for my heart! We play some beautiful football but the defence needs to be drilled and drilled and drilled... where's Steve Clarke these days???

    I honestly don't think he knows how.

    Our attacking players aren't the problem. The issue is the defence just isn't used to playing as a back 4.

    I think the commentary was on the money. Both our fullbacks are used to having a third centreback to cover for them and now that they aren't there anything down the wings is ripping us apart. The first 25 minutes was glorious the last 20 was painful. Thank f**k Arsenal can't finish better. Though of we keep giving them chances like that they'll get another just by the law of averages.

  9. I like this team, I just wonder if it might work better like this: Kepa Azpi - Luiz - Rudiger - Alonso Kante Jorginho- Barkley Pedro - Morata - CHO I think Kante will have more discipline to drop back when Luiz gets the urge to prove he is the embodiment of the spirit of Jairzinho and bomb off down the pitch.

    I know we lost the Charity Sheild and were never really in the game (one or two moments aside) but I was still happier with the way tried to play that game than the way we didn't play against City last year. I feel that once the players get the ideas the goals will come.

    See that's where I think you are wrong and don't get what a difference muscle memory and training a particular way of playing has at a top level of any sport. We've seen players come back from injuries not quite the same, their body is healed but something has changed, golfers change the smallest thing in their swing, runners their stride or bowlers their movement and it all falls apart untill they adapt to the new way of working. If your boss came in tomorrow and said, as if today we aren't using Microsoft Office we're switch to Google Docs, would everybody in the office be as efficient to start with? After all it's still just word processing or spreadsheets, right? Changes take time and at the top level even small changes can be disruptive and this is not a small change.

    I've got a feeling that when this clicks we are going to be very good but we are going to have take some serious pain until it does.
