Can someone make me feel better about our current situation please?
Now that Alexis is our first choice in the centre that leaves us currently with Walcott, Shitlade Chambershit, Iwobi and Ramsey.
I’m a big fan of Iwobi but he’s not really offered us much for the past few weeks (month(s)?) and could do with being dropped. I don’t even hold it against him at all, he is a young player still developing and many of us have said that it would be stupid to be too reliant on him, but we clearly are. If we drop Iwobi that means either side of Alexis we’ll need to play two of Walcott, Ox or Ramsey. How fucking uninspiring is that? Only Walcott has been good enough to justify that.
This situation is exactly why we needed to bring in another wide attacker this summer, or not let go both Gnabry and Campbell.
I assume Perez was meant to be signed as a striker, and he doesn’t fit the calibre of attacker we should have brought in to start for us.
Welbeck is just a myth these days. Like Wilshere I’ve stopped considering him a genuine option, just a luxury when he is fit.
This thread is a bit all over the place, and reads like a stream of consciousness, but I figured that if I got the ball rolling others would add a bit more quality discussion. Seems like a topic worth discussing.
