Very disrespectful to our players to suggest Auba won us the FA Cup. He didn’t even play until the semi final.
The manager and the whole team won that cup and if anything it was Arteta’s tactics that enabled us to win the semi final and final.
One could as easily say that Arteta won Auba the only trophy he ever won at Arsenal. Auba never even got us top 4.
Yeah, it was for sure a team effort. That strange tactic with 3 atb and overloading the left side really worked wonders. If anything it was that whole left hand side with Tierney at wide attacking LCB, AMN at inverted LWB and Auba at LW that won us the FA cup. Very nice system. But it didn’t work in the long run when the opponents started to figure out what we were doing… but feels like our current squad would be well suited for that setup if we would need it, with Zinchenko replacing AMN and Martinelli replacing Auba.
