We all know that after the fantastic form Arsenal were in towards the end of last season we were all full of expectation that this season just started could be the year when we finally became title challengers. All summer we listened to the players and fans talking up our chances that ‘this could be our year’, but we were all suddenly brought back down to Earth by our opening day defeat.
Why Wenger IS to blame for Arsenal’s failings by PA
Arsene Stubborn and Impractical
Even before the trophy less spell Wenger was always stubborn, with a rigid adherence to philosophy over tactics. It was always his way or nothing. There are two problems with this.
First his way hasn’t arguably translated to success on the playing field. Success is the great arbiter. If he was successful, in a manner not open to arguments then his philosophy and personality would not ever be questioned.
