Man City v Arsenal (PL)


#161

The shit right there is one of the reasons I rate Welbeck so much especially in the big games, he’s always bombing about and doesn’t allow anyone time on the ball, I love it.

There ya go @arsenescoatmaker proof this place is full of trolls, no actual football conversation going on in here :roll_eyes:


#163

I’m certainly a better troll than you even if I ain’t one.


#164

Better troll?? Lel ewwwwww.


#165

Dat Wengenpressing tho :giroud2:

It’s underapreciated, but Fergie dropped Rooney for Welbz against Real for this reason. Welbz would also be more prolific if he focused his energies on goal scoring and being less of a team player.


#167

Being prolific is a skill. I doubt Welbeck would suddenly become an excellent finisher if he started conserving energy.

He is just not a striker.

Trion talking sense! Bookmarking this one. It’s amazing what arsenescoatmaker will do to people.


#169

Not sure this line is fair considering that about two years ago you two were on the same side of nearly every debate :sweat_smile:


#170

Trion and I never really agreed on anything. We were both pro-wenger but had very different ways of articulating our pro-wengerism.


#171

AC just doesn’t want to be seen liking my post without pulling me down a bit.


#172

“Religion is bullshit”


#173

More like I don’t like being pulled down by association :sunglasses::cowboy_hat_face:

It’s true though, I remember how little we liked our posts between each other despite being pillars of pro-wengerism on the old forum. I was more of a Mr Arsenal guy, or itstape, or maradroga, or patrice before he went mad and we started hating eachother, lol.


#174

You used to be quite fond of pulling each other off


#176

If only the old forum existed :frowning:

Scoring is about getting in the right positions and getting enough chances. Welbeck is good enough to score 1 in 5 chances, which is where Suarez typically was too. But Suarez averaged 5.5 shots a game, Welbeck averages about 2. If Welbeck focused completely on finding space and getting behind the defenders shoulder he’d score more than when he continually tracks back and defends and ends up nowhere near goal.


#178

If Welbeck had it in him to score more then he wouldn’t have been utilised as a willing runner for his whole career by successive managers. Wenger and Ferguson wouldn’t waste a top striker by getting them to do donkey work someone less talented could do.

I just don’t think Welbeck has it in him, but that’s just my two cents
