RB Leipzig stormed to the top of the Bundesliga with a playing style that’s all their own

A very good piece on Leipzig.


This one on Leicester and their passing is also very good.


#65

Even the ref out ran him if I remember correctly.


#66

I could have outrun him !


#67

Do us another one that doesn’t include the EFL trophy :stuck_out_tongue:

I think this one shows (timothy) c leary why we have midfield problems right now

"Midfielders

1.Petros (Real Betis), 27
2. Ivaylo Chochev (Palermo), 23
3. Remo Freuler (Atalanta), 24
4. Roque Mesa (Las Palmas), 27 "

Looks like my suggestion on MDC wasn’t that bad after all :stuck_out_tongue:

Great read btw. Big fan of his articles.


They discussed Arsenal on the recent Satsbomb podcast. Discussion starts around 15:30 minutes in.

Well we have the best conversion rate at least (according to this place):

http://www.transfermarkt.com/premier-league/chancenverwertung/wettbewerb/GB1

1 Arsenal FC 107 shots, 48 goals, 22.1%
2 Liverpool FC 134 shots, 49 goals, 20,8 %
3 Chelsea FC 114 shots, 45 goals, 19,8 %

Shots are shots on goal, for most teams they’re about half of the shots. Not bad going from the season before when we were 6th with 16.0%, and the season before that when we were 5th with 17.9%.

The music choice for the Weigl and Kostic clips is glorious. :joy:

Hollands counter press from back in the day (@ 1.08) would suit Alexis down to the ground :smirk:

Interesting the comments on Abraham, I thought he was pegged as more likely to be a mid-table/championship striker.

edit:

@Oliver :wenger:

Good article honestly. @Maxi_Gooner wonder what you think of the comments on your man Zeman :wink:

Ted points out on here that Walcott is beginning to decline and now might be a good chance to move him on.
