Arsenal fans owe Wenger a round of applause by Sam P
I saw the article on JUst Arsenal about Arsene Wenger and his decision to mkae only two changes to the Arsenal XI for the home game against Everton today and I must say that I agree in general with the point that it was a really risky move from the Prof.
But at the end of the day it worked in our favour and maybe that is why Wenger is the manager and has kept his job in the toughest league in the world for nearly 20 years. I think that a lot of the reason for Arsenal sticking with Wenger is his financial acumen and his all round work for the club, with the academy system and the loyalty he shows and engenders in the players also very important.
But his tactics and reading for football are often called into question and so it is only fair to give him his due when deserved. And the fact is that he pulled the club out of the fire again with the Everton win. And his decision to stick with Giroud, Ozil, Alexis, Cazorla and others after they were rightfully criticised this week is probably a massive boost for the players.
He could have made big changes and won the game but then the players dropped might take a real hit to their confidence. So come on Gooners, let’s give credit where it’s due and appreciate the Wenger played this one just right.
