Is Wenger still the right man for the job?

    American_Gooner Not actually American. Unless Di Marzio says so. Moderator

    One of the main reasons for this is the lack of tactical work Arsène Wenger, and the group are ‘bored by his methods’.

    L’Equipe state, via a source at the club, the Frenchman has ‘lost his hold’ on the Arsenal squad, and his lack of communication is becoming a concern.

    However, above all is the ‘predictability’ of his line-ups, with the squad already knowing on the Monday who will be playing the next game, which is frustrating and demotivating the substitutes.

    Well he have to play the best players available for him any manager do that I don't get why the players finding it frustrating but if they being frustrating by predictable Wenger tactics then I understand their point
  5. The subs bench is below average, that's why we know what the starting 11 will be. These rumours are stupid. I wonder which one of those subs is supposedly upset.....

    DanDare Not interesting enough for a custom title

    Think AMN has a right to be frustrated. Mertesacker too tbh

    Wenger's lineups, tactics and substitutions have been predictable for years, and he's never been able to rotate his squad.

    And our subs bench might be weak, but that's what happens when you can't rotate players. A top player won't want to come to a top team and be a sub every week.

    Man City has a bench full of top players because Pep will rotate players. This guy will bench Aguero. Everyone at City knows that they will get a chance. It is pretty clear that players know that they won't at Arsenal if you aren't in the starting 11.

    Even if you aren’t a Spurs fan, I don’t think you’re an Arsenal fan either. Probably a Chelsea troll? o_O

    A soft AC Milan couldnt have come at a better time for him. Had we lost this game, he'd have been more or less out the door. We'll probably progress, but it'll be business as usual Vs Watford on Sunday, with us looking rudderless.

    Disagree completely here . Getting more than enough playing time and don't mention midfield because he ain't ready for the engine room .

    To be fair he's rotated as much as he can , hard to have complete trust with the likes of Iwobi ,Chambers etc . AW pretty much will play you if you show you are good enough.

    Still remember that death rubber in EL group stages when he played the most boring line-up available instead of giving a couple of youngsters a chance.

    I'm just a outside viewer but his line-ups this season have been the most boring in years and yet we have probably the most exciting academy players we have had in his tenure.

    :lol: Soft? They were unbeaten in their last 13 matches in the Serie A, including 9 clean sheets, and beating Inter in the Coppa Italia.

    Anyway more to the point, what you doing up at 3.38am? Worrying about Wenger going?:eek:

    Wind forward to 1926. AMN: 'Yes I owe my World Cup winners medal to Arséne Wenger. He spotted my talent as a left back and I've never looked back since.'
  18. say yes

    say yes Very Stable Genius

    Why do journalists think it’s news that Wenger won’t quit in the summer?

    Has never been even slightly on the cards. Only way he’s leaving before his contract is up is if he gets sacked. Which unfortunately is probably not on the cards either.

    Think 1926 would be backwards. Wenger is so good that AMN great-great grandfather won a world cup four years before it was invented! ;)

    Agreed, there seems very little appetite from the board or fans to get rid of him.
