    If Pascal Groß puts the crosses in we only need one winger.
    I think that's very simplistic. A lot of the time Gross gets the space he needs to cross because he has Montoya overlapping outside him. The reason he can create so much joy from the half-space is that their full back can't come inside to close him down as he needs to mark Montoya when he overlaps. If Webster plays and doesn't overlap so much then it would reduce the amount of space afforded to Gross

      Brilliant article. Raumdeuter is my new favourite word! We need Pascal T shirts, stickers and posters emblazonned with our super German's new nomenclature

      Really? Its hard to do owt when you spend the majority of a season injured being forced to play.
      He has had plenty of opportunities to showcase his talents before these injuries kicked in. Sorry but he has to offer far more than just cutting inside on to his right foot, and blasting a shot at goal from ong range .

      Wonderful we are creating chances. Extremely worrying that we appear to be unable to take them.

      I like Gross; he is a class act for sure. Not yet convinced that Potter's style suits him because of his lack of pace.
      Then again maybe we are lucky to have him, if it wasn't for his lack of pace he wouldn't be in our team, but playing for a much better club.

      I do wonder (as I'm sure most others do as well) if a player who relies on pace can come back after X (2 ?) operations with that same speed.
      Stoke aside pretty much all of Jose's game is 'run with the ball, cut in, shoot over the bar, from the edge of the box' - where have we seen that before?
      It certainly isn't the one touch, pass and move, run out of space at the by-line we're becoming accustom too.
      On the flip side that Stoke goal very much was the kind of thing we’d hope to see under Potter. So we know he has it in him. All our attacking players struggled under CH so let’s see what he’s got when he gets fit.
      It’s not really fair to suggest he can’t do it when a) he’s unfit, b) he was playing under a far less attack minded coach and c) he has actually shown EXACTLY the kind of thing Potter likes with that Stoke goal.

      Agree. The 'pace' argument is done to ****ing death. Bolt has pace but can't play.
      Well actually, he can.

      Very good article.
      "Brighton have taken 4 points off us this season, you do realise that innit, they've taken 4 points off Arsenal Football Club. Brighton and Hove Albion have taken 4 points off ARSENAL FOOTBALL CLUB. Let that sink in. Let that sink in. Let. That. Sink. In blud. F*cking Brighton. Pebbles and sticks of f*cking rock. Pebbles and sticks of rock, blud. That's what they're f*cking known for."

      So Groß cross into the area that created the opening goal v Watford gets marked down as an 'incomplete pass?'

      A tad harsh.
