He persisted with the target man idea for way too long. After a player like Henry elevated the club... Bewildering.
It worked with Ade, even peak Giroud was bloody good. These guys have abit of everything in their locker.

Think Liverpool are playing similar with Firminio, though a silky false 9.

Giroud was a good striker, If Arsène played with two wingers with Giroud, he would have looked better...he did a lot of good work for Sanchez, but when played with the likes of Cazorla and Wilshere wide, we could look very laboured at times.

Was a drop in quality from the likes of Henry and RVP though.

Thought it worked when Walcott played, as he had space to run into...but thought Sánchez skill set was better suited wide.

Maybe against bottom-midtable teams but in the big matches, our play was too predictable for the majority of that season.

No flexibility in the tactics whatsoever, until Wenger picked a back three formation.

The lack of balance in our side towards the end of Wenger’s reign was his biggest issue. We were playing midfielders out wide while having an immobile striker... even though wenger had always built his sides on pace. Even Alexis wasn’t a ‘take it to the by line’ type winger, he loved to cut in. It was all too predictable.

The final nail in the coffin was Cazorla basically being replaced by Xhaka. We had already given up on Wilshere and lost Rosicky and so we didn’t have any spark in midfield. The team had finally become the total opposite to everything Wenger had ever believed in.

We definitely neglected important physical traits that made some of Arsène best teams that damn good!

The 2013-2016 period, should have resulted in at least one league title heading our way, and the biggest reason we didn’t was squad building.

As many have said, we always seem to just wait and see what happens these days in regards to transfers, instead of really ruthlessly getting what we need, shame.

When you look at the core of players we had in that period, it’s a real shame we didn’t just build around them better and create more balance in the team.

I'm very worried we will lose Auba if it continues as is it. We would not be able to replace him, there are hardly any top strikers who scores so many goals that are Realistic for us to buy now, it would cost a huge amount of money and would they even want to come.

I wouldn't be surprised if contract negotiations were on hold whilst Emery was here. Reckon he will stay now. The Barca rumours are just noise and Real will get Mbappe.

im kinda the same. Really don’t want him to leave but if we got 70 mill for auba and 50 for laca and actually spent that on quality defenders then I would be happy with that. The striker problem we could solve quite easily if we shopped clever and used the youth. There are decent strikers around who could fill a void whilst we address the areas that we need too.

Saved us today but needs to play in the middle, also hate the reaction after the pen, punish them by beating them not by lowering yourself to their level, its small time

As much as he saved us he was pants for that intial penalty and a couple other times where he is simply so ineffective on the ball. Still, miles ahead of Laca who was absolute poverty.

Yeah, yesterday really highlighted a lot of problems within the squad, its bad when your main man kinda represents a problem himself, amazing goalscorer but a pretty average all round game...his goals save us tho so cant complain

He is quite limited in terms of his general play BUT technically if he has Özil behind him in the AM position it shouldn't really matter should it, we don't want him to be involved in the build up, just stay in and around the box making runs and sniffing out goals, Özil/Pepe/Nelson/Martinelli and co should be the guys feeding him and linking the midfield to attack, Auba is a prime poacher, one of the best in the league behind probably Vardy and Aguero for converting chances in the box for me, so play to your main mans strength, and feed the boy so he can score.

Was nuts to see Emery play him and Laca up top together against Leicester then ask them both to split wide and track the Leicester full backs.....laughable.....the boy scores goals in a disfuctional unbalanced team, imagine if the likes of Özil/Pepe and co start clicking with a run of games together.

Agreed on everything but sadly he gets moved about and its a problem, should be in the middle and that should be that, hopefully the next manager isnt mental
