    IMO we are setting ourselves up as a similar team to the Arse. They dont play with wingers, more giroud backed up with 4 forward thinking midfielders, backed up with Flamini.

    ------------------Flamini or Arteta----------------

    -----------------------Eriksen or holtby-------------------------

    Arse obviously have this down better than us and i think with the european games being no brainer games we have to make the most of them and try this formation.

    ----------------------Sandro OR Dembele---------------------

    Yes that means dropping two of our most improved or consistant players but imo we need to desperately find the link in the forward play even if it is to the detriment of our defensive strength. I can't remember having played this formation before. I know some will counter holtby and eriksen in the middle and say play 2 up front but we need this to work because it is the future.It would still allow flexibility if we wanted to move any of that supporting 4 around and if we needed to shore things up we could easily have holtby dropping deeper (Which is why i would favour

    i agree with that

    i found that on a differnt forum.

    theres no point playing sandro paullino and dembele in the same team unless your trying to hold on to a lead

    no wonder soldado not getting chances with them 3 plus the selfisness of towsend.

    holtby and erkison have the abilty to move the ball faster. pass quicker.

    I actually agree somewhat with that formation, though I'd put Townsend on the left as he can go inside or out, being 2 footed.

    Holt by is a livewire who can put himself about in a deeper role, whilst also being able to pick a pass.

    Having said that, I do feel that capoue would be the better fit for that role, with Holt by offering the alternative to Eriksen if he's not quite firing.

    Lovely having so many options though, particularly when you're not really reducing the class on the pitch with the substitution.
