I'd say they should sign an extra D Mid in January just to prevent a catastrophe but they never ever spend when they're in a position to succeed so I doubt they open the chequebook
amen.

Re: English Football 2015-16

I really like Can and I'm optimistic about his future under Klopp. I have one complaint though, and this is for you old school 8-bit Nintendo players out there: he sometimes looks like a Techmo Bowl defender. He runs directly at the ball, instead of running to where the ball is going. Like a dog chasing a bone.

Re: English Football 2015-16

meh
signing a DM who can just step in without adaption time is close to impossible, may as well just ride it out with caz/coq/ramsey/wilshere/arteta/flamster/oxymoron

Re: English Football 2015-16

But it would be better to sign someone in January already to have an alternative to Coquelin at least. Maybe a young potential beast- give him some cup games etc

I think it's a fair counterpoint, that the system is so well known by the players you already have that you might as well just let it ride.

a signing like that would be for the future and would have no bearing on the outcome of this season

Fair enough. I just hope our midfield stays fit. Also Mr.Wenger better rest Alexis on Tuesday or I'm going to lose my ****

We've played ok, problem is we are playing with a striker who can't really do anything at all.

Wouldn't plop look a lot more dangerous with Benteke upfront?

Re: English Football 2015-16

FPL question:

Gameweek 11 next weekend covers Sat 31 Oct - Mon 2 Nov. Does the whole gameweek count for the October monthly leagues? I'd imagine so, but if the Sun/Mon games fall into the November monthly it will have quite an impact on my team selection!

In other words, he'd be an important asset in this Arsenal team. A team intending to go deep in four competitions has room for more than one right back, especially when the two have different skills and one of them can double as a backup CB. Didn't expect that to be a misleading post.

0-0 will not be a good result for the FPL bet.
