Coshcast S6E4: Theatre of Nightmares

Manchester United Lindelot to be desired as Spurs break old habits at Old Trafford, Wolves hold City in a case of headers and Bolys at Molineaux, Arsenal once again challenge their opponents to a game of “who can be a bigger shambles?” but win because it was West Ham.

We’ve got the rest of the Premier League action including Chelsea, Liverpool, and new title contenders Watford, a quick European run down which sounds like something you order off a menu in a red light district, and our usual favourite features. On we go.

The Arsenal lineup in 2018/19

Positionally, however, it feels as if he can’t help but be sacrificed. If Ozil is fit, Mkhitaryan won’t play in his best position – as a #10. Due to the lack of other good wide options, his most-likely role will be on the right, where he’ll be expected to come inside and link up with Ozil and the striker, leaving space for Bellerin to overlap (and put in terrible crosses).

Why on earth did Arsenal sell Szczęsny?

That a club with the stature, expectations and standards of Juventus were willing to replace their greatest ever goalkeeper with Wojciech Szczęsny should have been the subtlest of clues to Arsenal that they shouldn’t sell. When their options were a visibly declining Cech and a too-short-to-ever-be-good-enough Ospina, and one of Europe’s leading clubs wanted their man, Arsenal perhaps should have realized what they had. Instead, the Pole was sold to Turin for a pitiful 12m Euros. 

Coshcast: Arsenal pull their Wenger out | Napoli in with a shout

Arsenal finally pull their finger out as it’s Wenger out at the Emirates – we look back at the career of the Gandalf of football – the glory and the yawns, the glamour and the false dawns, and ask who is the right man for this brave new era, from Max Allegri to Patrick Vieira.

Elsewhere there’s FA Cup action to discuss as Mourinho mourinhos his team past Spurs who spurs themselves right in the spurs, and in things you never thought would happen, Giroud goes on a mazy dribble, and Napoli beat Juventus in Turin.

Coshcast: Collapse at the PathEtihad

This week on the Coshcast,
City fail to buy a centreback better than Otamendi at half time allowing United to storm back and beat them at the Etihad, somehow a Merseyside derby featuring Dominic Solanke and a team managed by Sam Allardyce doesn’t produce any goals, Spurs and Arsenal scrape past Mark Hughes past and present, and Chelsea continue to defy all logic by not using Ross Barkley to fire them into the Champions League spots.

How Arsenal miss Santi

For a good few years, Santi Cazorla and his diminutive stature papered over the giant cracks in Arsenal’s midfield. His magical ball retention and ambidextrous ability lulled fans into forgetting about the lack of cover and depth. Now the memories haunt them more than ever.

The Second Half: Things to Expect in the EPL

Boxing day has arrived and the season’s second half has begun. The title race may be all but over, but the domestic cups are still to play for and the Europa and Champions League knockout stages have yet to commence. Just a few weekends ago we were delighted at the onset of another footballing season. Now, we find ourselves wondering how things will transpire as we prepare for another World Cup.
