To play 3-5-2 with wing-backs you need the right players, you can't just use what you've got and hope for the best. Wing-backs should be defenders first, especially when your central defenders are as bad as ours. Our only true wing-backs are both injured, Rafael and Shaw, so we should be playing a 4-4-2 diamond if he wants two strikers.
I can't see why he hasn't bought better, and why he hasn't had a clear out. Why are Young, Cleverley, Fletcher, Welbeck and Valencia still here? Unfortunately, because of injuries, we need Smalling and Jones, but they need to improve big time.
My other concern is the injuries, nine of them, mostly from training, and after stories of extra training sessions, including on days they would otherwise have had off. Look at Shaw, for instance, one day he's told he's not fit enough and needs extra work, then he picks up an injury during training. This is the sort of thing we've come to expect from Arsenal.

Are you claiming Gillian was a hopeless alcoholic, abandoned by his family and friend?
Wouldn't that mean he must be a bad husband and father?
That sounds about right!
