As we are in the transfer period, we are supposed to strengthen our squad but a few questions remain:
- Are we to stick in our 4231 system or will Arteta move back to his 433?
- Who do we build our team around?
I want to focus on the second one although one could argue that it is dependent on the first one and the argument wold be valid 😛
We have a few talented players in Holding, Tierney, Partey, Saka, ESR, Pepe (?), Martinelli…and then there is also the perennial question related to Aubameyang…so how do we put our best players in the best conditions to perform and who would you build your team around?
Do you build it around Auba and then maybe a 433 or 442 (4312) may be more adapted and who would play upfront with Auba?
Do you build the team around Saka and then is the 4231 system better suited and does that mean that Pepe has to play on the left side?
Do you build the team around Tierney and then do we need a CF that can be a target for his beautiful crosses?
Do you build the team around ESR and then do we need to play Saka, Pepe (or Martinelli) next to him and Laca up front, meaning leaving out Auba?
…We could go on and on…so who do you think we should build our team around and why?
