Team Cohesion & Squad Additions by TJ
I want to talk about Team Cohesion, the team system…the way we play.
Great teams aren’t made up of the best players by position. Building a team with the “best in positions” doesn’t make a great team. The best managers will tell you that.
You look for the role you want and you look for the best player who will fit in that role and bring a higher level of quality to make the overall team performance improve.
So the first thing to understand is the team ethic and system of play. The second thing to understand is what attributes make that role sync with the rest. The third thing to understand are the attributes that “a new addition” will bring to lift the overall performance.
So when you look at the transfer targets…ask yourself those questions. The so called “world class” players may not always be the answer. Some of them are world class in a particular system only.
So before you cast judgement on any transfer…think about Team Cohesion, the system of play and what that player will contribute to improve (i.e. better finishing and less overall teamwork, pressing etc may not fit the bill!) the overall performance.
Based on this…who would you suggest and WHY! in terms of the additions to the Gunners for the coming season?
