I've always been very loyal for our players, supporting them and always hoping for them to play as well as they can. And i still am. What has changed, however, is that i wouldn't care if most of the first team players were sold.

I would keep the following players.
And the new signings because it would be pointless to sell them already.

All the rest - if we receive a good offer for anyone and have a replacement waiting i wouldn't be against them going. Mustafi to Van Dijk? Xhaka to Carvalho? Ramsey to Brozovic or Matuidi? Ox to Mahrez? No problem.

The thing is some of these players don't need replacing. For example Ramsey could function very well in this new formation. Also Xhaka and Mustafi might improve as their first disappointing season is behind them. But most of the players can be replaced and even improved upon so for good money why not do it?

What formation do you think we will be going for next season?

Front 3 with Lemar Lazacatte Ozil ?

Revert back to back 4 or stick with 3 at the back?

For me- 3 5 2

Front 2 = Sanchez / Mbappe and Lazacette then for certain games Giroud & Lazacette

Behind them ACM Ozil ( middle not winger)

Kol - Carvalho - Matuidi - Ox

Kos - Mustafi / Kjaer

I would like to see an improved right wing back who can actually cross the ball as well as put a shift in attack & defence ( not Mahrez )

If 3 4 3 - all 3 need to be able to find the net and have good pace & movement.

I like the idea of Ozil playing a little deeper in the hole while the two strikers tease the centre halves with runs and both being dangerous.

This 3 5 2 is to accommodate the great run while playing 3 at the back. Our full backs aren't disciplined enough. Otherwise we would always have 3 at the back as one attacjs while the other defends.

It accommodates Ozil and we don't have a DB10 either so need creativity elsewhere.

I prefer the additional person in midfield - so 3 at the back wins for me.

What about Holding? Too big a season to have him as a starting CD all season even though I really rate the guy.

Happy to put Rambo in the middle for certain games to replace one of the centre midfielders to ensure we get bodies forward but Rambo needs a little more discipline on the defensive side of things.

I am very defensive in the team as a clean sheet can't get beat!! Hence I need to beasts as my front two - Lacazette and Mbappe or Sanchez or Aguero is my chosen front two. One chance = one goal not 15 shots = no goals!

That means a few departures.

Any chance of this being on the banter page as it's not just a team sheet but rather a discussion. :)

{Ed002's Note - It is about formations - tell them where it is - else it wiull be cluttered up with fantasy teams.}

Looking at our players, if Sanchez stays, surely we're going to a back 4 this season to fit our best players in the right positions and to keep ramsey and ox. Also can't see we'll sign another proven top level player as can't play them enough. If we do, surely means ox or ramsey is leaving this season or next. A lemar might happen though as more likely they'd be happy to rotate and get used to things.

San. Ozil ox
Ram. Xhak
Kol kos must bell

Subs- gir, wel, wal, coq, gab, hold, gk.

Decent team If Sanchez stays we can challenge for the league if he dose stay I'd play 4-2-3-1 or 4-4-2


Mustafi koscielny monreal

Bellerin. Kolasnic

Xhaka. Groetzka

Ozil. Lacazette. Lemar

Morning all!

What formation do you thing we will be using next season?

I like the 3 at the back and the new left wing back should give us the perfect left side of the midfield while Ox and Bellerin on the right.

With Lacazette up front - we need a good crosser on the right so Bellerin best start practicing his crossing as well as the Ox or we are missing a trick there.

For me: 3 5 2

This gives Lacazette a partner upfront. Not necessarily Giroud but two mobile attackers to draw defenders out of position and keep them occupied - Sanchez and Lacazette or Mbappe and Lacazette.

5 in midfield with Ozil in a ACM role - keep him central with a licence to roam. That leaves the middle two - cavarlho would complete the central area of midfield for me.

Back 3 - love Holding but a big long season ahead and he is still a young centre back. Great cover and happy for him to get a good few games but to win the league - we must be ruthless- so Kos, Mustafi and Kjear.

This can easily turn into a 3 4 3 if needed but I prefer 3 5 2 to keep Ozil central and to have two strikers as we need to be more ruthless in key games & key moments both up front and in defence

Mbappe Lacazette
Kol Carvalho Rambo Ozil Ox
Kos Mustafi Kjear

Are we going to revert to a back 4 next season at some point?

Possible and would allow more flexibility with the players we already have including lacazette (and more so with any of the rumoured carvalho, martens, mahrez)

For stubborn teams, how about:

Bell Kos must Kolas
Ox. Xhaka Ozil. Sanchez
Danny Lacaz
Theo, Olly, Ramsey, Coq,

I hope not. This looks like shoehorning Ozil into a formation and leaving our centre very exposed
3 5 2 is my wish with two clinical mobile strikers

Against certain teams Giroud and Lacazette or Sanchez / replacement and Lacazette for most games.

most lieky line up for next season
mustafi kos monreal

bellerin kolasnic

xhaka ramsey

ozil lacazette mahrez

The players we are linked with suggests we may go back to 4 2 3 1 which i think is a big mistake.

With sanchez and ozil already
Lacazette, mahrez and lemar don't go.

If we sell sanchez and ozil i can't see a front 3 of mahrez lemar and lacazette. Good players but not much balance. especially with
2 lefties at cam.
Ozil sanchez
Is much better than
Lemar mahrez

With 9 wins in our last 10 games and a string of clean sheets i can only see us starting this season with a 3-4-3 which i'm really glad about because we looked solid and many of our players improved with their changes in role. If we look at our current squad
Mustafi kos holding
Bellerin monreal
Ramsey xhaka
Ozil sanchez

Ospina/ shez
Gabriel bfg chambers
Ox kolasinic
Eleneny coquelin/ wilshere
Iwobi walcott/ perez

We clearly need a top cf (lacazette or mbappe) but if we keep ozil and sanchez in this new formation and with the squad depth i'd fancy us to challenge. I would sell walcott and perez and buy lemar but i reckon that 2nd team would go far in the europa and the league cup. You could even send iwobi on loan and move welbeck to iwobis position so welbeck and lemar behind giroud. I know he is likely to go but i'd keep giroud as he is an excellent plan b and would score a fair amount from the service from our wb's.
