There have been times in the past when Arsenal fans and football observers have been left scratching our heads at some of the things that Arsene Wenger has done, but it seems to me that the Frenchman has gone into overdrive this summer, making some very odd decisions that I think should be a big concern for the club.
Why, for instance, did he choose to play Alexis Sanchez through the middle once again at Leicester yesterday? Irtr is not as if the Chilean gave any indication in the Liverpool match that it was a good plan, whereas we all know what an impact he can have in his usual position on the left.
It is not as if Wenger did not have any option either, with Giroud and Walcott both having played through the middle with some success. Then you have the baffling decision to leave Joel Campbell out of the squad altogether for the second game in a row, after the Costa Rican had an impressive pre-season and could have given us some much needed cut and thrust in the attacking third.
The boss left Cazorla on the bench and risked an unready Aaron Ramsey instead in the opening game and a lot of people questioned why he did not rush Koscielny back when it was so clear we needed him. So just two games in I am starting to wonder what is going on in the mind of our manager and that is before you start looking at his bizarre transfer policy of refusing to accept what is clear to everyone else and spending the money that is so desperately needed.
Are you guys as worried as me about the increasingly odd decisions Wenger has been making?
