How would you describe Arsene Wenger’s character? by Briantole
Stubborn, deluded, arrogant, greedy. That is what most Arsenal fans will tell you at the moment.
Wenger has been too much of a gambler. His tactics management and organization are all signs of recklessness.
We play players who are at so many times considered liable in different aspects.
Players like Sanchez, the Ox, Walcott, Giroud, Coquelin are considered liabilities in possession.
Welbeck and Giroud are used to missing sitters at the wrong times.
Mertesacker is considered slow.
Gabriel is too error prone.
Ozil and Elneny are too lightweights.
Chambers lacks speed and agility while also being error prone.
Gibbs attacks more than he defends.
Ospina’s height proves be somewhat of a liability as he sometimes fails to reach out onto the balls.
Our lineup against Watford was….
Chambers Mertz Gabriel Gibbs
Campbell Ozil Sanchez
I don’t know what it was supposed to mean because as you can see the left flank is possession liable the right flank lacks speed.
The midfield is lightweight. The central defence is too error prone.
Ospina has a height disadvantage, while Giroud lacks all the qualities of a great striker.
The only reason he is put on the pitch is to connect with the team and to create space for others to score goals. He can be too inconsistent and miss some great chances.
Well, to be honest, looking at the goals conceded I am not sure whether goalkeepers like Hart, Courtois, De Gea and even Bravo would have let those in.
Looking at the chances missed. I wonder what would have been the outcome if they had fallen to the feet of Bale, Aguero, Lewandowski or Van Persie?
Moving forward fans are also distressed with Wenger’s delusions.
He considers Welbeck, Walcott, Giroud and Sanchez world class strikers or European elites.
This statement can be considered blasphemy by most given the reputation of Giroud, Walcott and Welbeck. The goal scoring records of Walcott and Welbeck are not something to be proud of. While Giroud’s invisibility in matches and clumsiness becomes causes of ridicule amongst supporters.
The last thing about Wenger is the sheer arrogance leading to some supporters describing him as the dictator.
What can you say about being the only club not to sign a single outfield player?
What can you say about Rosicky, Wilshere and Diaby injuries?
What can you say about instilling a shambolic defence that concedes 4 5 6 and 8 goals?
This is pain that supporters have felt during his club tenure.
All in all, he is the most successful FA cup manager in history.
He is also the only manager to hold the invincibles record in the post war era.
He is also a record holder in being involved in the UCL a record 16 times.
He has managed to cope during the good and bad times after losing his best players and undergoing a financial breakdown. Although he was only able to achieve 4th place positions.
So can he win the title?
Well he has been beaten by teams who have a better financial base and who have worked with some of the world’s finest talents.
Currently those above him holding those positions are not the better teams.
There can still be some slight hope of the title. Though as we say records are meant to be broken so the tables might turn this time around.
So what do you make of Wenger’s character?
