THE THREE THINGS WENGER SHOULD DO TO REVIVE ARSENAL’S SEASON by NO
Arsenal started the new season on a wrong footing by losing to Liverpool. However, what came out is that Wenger’s rigid ideologies lost the day for Arsenal. He insisted on having Xhaka and Carzola staring from the bench. He failed to read the mood of Oxlade Chamberlain to take responsibility this season and cash on it. He failed to read the danger of playing two young centre backs in Chambers and Holding together. However, he got one thing right, Walcott can actually get the goals this season.
The 3 BEST things Wenger can do in order to return Arsenal to winning ways are as follows:
Set up the side like this: 220.127.116.11
Monreal, Mustafi, Holding, Bellerin
Clearly, Arsenal need to score goals and Walcott supported by a Rampant Ox on the left and Sanchez moving to the right would have Arsenal playing at their most efficient attacking balance. A second side of this trio could have Walcott replaced by Giroud, and Campbell can play some role and even the likes of Akpom, Gnabry and Campbell can form the basis of these trio effectively. The trio can bury any side they face in Europe with an avalanche of goals. It was a similar attacking trio that has Man City clearly second bested. Such side is only comparable to Barcelona. And this will set up a super lightening attacking side. Iwobi plays in the Ozil role until Ozil is match fit to take back his place. There is no-brainer in having Cazorla and Xhaka paired up in the Defensive Midfield positions. It is also no-brainer that Chambers should be replaced by an experienced Centre back.
Buy Mustafi, Replace Debuchy and Sell Ramsey.
Obviously the first part of this statement is also no brainer that Arsenal need to sign an experienced Centre back. Selling Ramsey may elicit lots of noise, however, in my view he is one reason Wenger line ups are ineffective and he will never fully realize his potential in Arsenal.
Rotate When Necessary
Arsenal have an uncanny behaviour of losing key players during important sections of the Premier league. The 18.104.22.168 formation allows the squad to relieve each other with little compromise to efficiency and effectiveness. For Instance, Coquelin and Elneny can replace either Cazorla and Xhaka in some games very adequately, Gibbs and the new signing should be able to come in for the Monreal and Bellerin in other matches. The Centre back will be boosted by the return of Gabriel. However, Chambers can come in for Holding and Monreal, or even Coquelin should be able to relieve Mustafi. Ospina should get some games too.
What do you think of these line-ups?
