Are you sure Per didn't say that? Or a recorded message from Theo possibly? He's surely not implying that the team couldn't focus with Alexis in the side? After all, Wenger was selecting him every week
We won game, so he had to be great. He's always great when we win. Try and keep up.
The ‘we played well because Alexis is gone’ is bullshit. Everton away was on par, if not better than that and he was our best player in that one. Have to keep to that level up for another few months before it gains any merit.
People on here made tongue in cheek comments about being better without Alexis, but Wenger seems to be serious.
Watching the replay,I really liked the intensity that all the players showed. We also played really good pass and move football which meant there weren't so many gaps all over the pitch. A fast start was a pleasant change too and the drop off in the second half is probably down to the midweek match we have coming up. With three players sold,we'll need a lot of the starters today vs Chelsea. Hope the lads are up for it. COYG.
~Ive not seen the clip yet. I wont watch it, because if I feel he's having a dig at Alexis I'll bury my laptop in the wall.
have some compassion - he's been sorely tried for the past few months, and is not getting any younger
I expect him to pay a glowing tribute to Alexis once he's sure he's gone
We don't know him personslly or what problems he may have caused in the dressing room. Wenger probably does.
So Wengers way of dealing with that is to pick the player every week and tell everyone how great he is. Sounds about right tbf. Yep, he may well have been a disruptive wanker...
I can't work you out, Tosker... I fear you're being serious here Who knows... He might even actually tell all in that book he used to threaten to write when he's done...
Same here. When I had my stream setup, I went WTF...in a good way.
I do kind of genuinely feel sorry for him, because he's devoted all his life to a job which he was once very good at, and now can't admit it is now too much for him. It's possible to be fond of a stubborn old dinosaur while hoping he will soon become extinct.
I'd be first in the queue to by his memoirs though
If I sit down with a cup of tea and have a think about it, I feel a bit sorry for him. His book would have to be a huge seller. It'd be the first book I'd have read in along time. I literally wouldn't put it down until it was finished.
I'm sure Wenger has the title for his book already. Any ideas what he might call it?
"Arséne and Arsenal: Invincible in My Own Mind"
"Arséne and Arsenal: Balancing the Checkbooks"
"Arséne and Arsenal: It Was a Little Bit Too Long"
Its a sly dig at Gazidis/Law for allowing so many players to run their contracts down. Not a personal dig at Sanchez.
Wenger's memoirs:. What I DID See
This question deserves a thread of its own.....make it so sir!!!
Here's some suggestions for the manager and players on a snowy Sunday morning:
When he finally leaves:
'Kiss My Arséne''
'Strictly Come Sanchez'
'The Wizard of Özil'
'Just Be Kos'
'Xhaka The Lad'
'Jack And The Mean Talk'
