Arsenal fans here in the Transfer Tavern have had a tough time of it of late.
Finishing outside the top four for the first time in 20 years and having the unlucky bonus of playing in the Europa League is not making Arsene Wenger’s additional contract seasons an easy task.
Some of our Gooner punters wanted a fresh start this year, but they have got to stick with they’re long serving manager still. One of Wenger’s biggest mistakes and it’s highlighted every year, is that he goes for a similar type of player every time…
The number 10.
On Sunday, against newly promoted Brighton this was even more evidence of how far Arsenal are away from winning the league, maybe even the top four according to our landlord. It seemed that they had four sometimes five players, playing between the lines.
At some points, they were static. Zero movement, like they expected the ball to find them.
Playing a new Premier League team, you can get away with it…just. But once they up against the big boys, The Gunners will get found out – fancy getting tickets for a match at the Emirates? Check out Football Ticket Pad.
That space they’re leaving in the midfield will be exposed unless they put in some strict central midfielders who will hold their positions.
But with Wenger’s bullish approach, it seems they’re won’t be much room for change.
Cue another season of frustration and disappointment for the Emirates faithful.Like what the TT have on offer? Sign up for more notifications!
