What if ESR was the key to our title chances?

I watched the game against Everton with intent and all of our starters started and our subs came in –

A) Trossard played with poise but no end product

B) Jorginho slowed the game rather than injected pace to it… no surprise here

C) Vitinha tried but he is still finding his feet in the league

D) Tomy hardly had any time so can’t really judge his appearance

and then I thought…what if a fit ESR came onto the pitch instead of Vitinha…He would have been making more runs than Vitinha and Trossard could have been moved further up even given us a chance of playing 2 CFs…

So for all the buzz around Trossard and Jorginho, I think that our most important “squad” player until the end of the season will be ESR and I can’t wait to have him back to the squad. I would even go further as to say that it is more important to have him fit than G. Jesus because of the different qualities he brings in…

What do you think?

    Who the duck is Vitinha? The last I checked , Vitinha was playing for PSG!

    It was only a question of time until you got your 2 teams muddled up, it did make me chuckle though.

    A fit ESR would be a very welcome addition.

    Vitinha plays for PSG…indeed…lol…He had a great first half of the season and now he is really poor…

    PSG have no chance of winning the CL this year and I will go even further, they may not win the French Cup but will end up winning the French League…The defensive set-up and the transition set-up are just weak. We depend on the technical capacities of Mbappe, Messi and Neymar to score – there is no real build up…The most reliable players to PSG are Hakimi, Marquinhos, VERRATTI, Mbappe and Messi…at the moment, only Hakimi and Messi are playing or playing well…Biggest worry is our midfield and also our defense and also our GK…I am not very confident but then again, we can turn a corner quickly…

    Donarrumma – Hakimi, Marquinhos, Danilo, Mendes – Verratti, Vitinha, F. Ruiz – Neymar – Messi, Mbappe

    Next summer, there will be a clear out…players like Ramos, Bernat, Soler, Neymar will be invited to leave…

  5. RC78 says:

    Donarrumma – Hakimi, Skriniar, Marquinhos, Mendes – Verratti, Vitinha – RECRUIT – RECRUIT, Messi, Mbappe

    I think a player like Kolo Muani / Marcus Thuram / Embolo / L. Martinez / Mahrez…who can play CF or on the wings will join us

    I also think we will be after a player like De Bruyne, Odegaard, Tchouameni, Camavinga, Douglas Luiz, Mount, Milinko Savic…

    Donarruma – Hakimi, Skriniar, Marquinhos, Mendes – Verratti, Vitinha – MOUNT? – KOLO MUANI, Messi, Mbappe

    LAFONT – Mukiele, Ramos, Kimpembe, ? – Danilo, F.Ruiz, Renato Sanches – Zaire Emery – Ekitike, M. THURAM (?)

    Anyways – the point is that we need ESR fit and soon. If he helps us unlock some games with his scoring and assisting capability, we may have a decent shot at the title….COYG

    There has to be a Coaching issue if that PSG squad cannot make more o& an impression in the Champions League…

  8. RC78 says:

    That PSG squad will come good spring 24…last season of Mbappe. He ll leave PSG with a CL and Messi will also have his final CL…

  9. RC78 says:

    Vlahovic, Chiesa, Kean, Danilo, Locatelli, Kostic won’t be retained by Juve at the end of the season in case Juve does not quality for Europe…

    Just had a look at the Ligue Un table and I’ve gotta say that it’s great to see RC Lens doing so well, a proper football club with fantastic fans, I thoroughly enjoyed my two visits there back in day, some 20 odd years ago.

  11. allezkev says:

    AS Monaco looked good, PSG didn’t look at it at all.

  12. allezkev says:

    As for Arsenal, well whatever anyone says about the game in general once again the officials failed to do their jobs to the required standard or any standard, has the officiating got better or has it actually got worse under Howard Webb?

  13. fred1266 says:

    Well after today games have to say worse, I remember a similar scenario with martinelli about 2 years back and dey ruled or goal off but yet dey give today own

    Also Chelsea west ham I really thought soucek hand touch the ball while je was on the ground

  14. Bloody Lee Mason on VAR duties, ’nuff said!

    PS been an interesting few years hasn’t it?

    Hope all are well

    My parents now have season tickets, nearly 30 years after giving them up during Rioch era so I could play Saturday football and missing most of the glory years under Arsene, I’m glad they are able to watch the development of the current team.
