Özil at 10 And Emery Out
Playing to a players strength as in changing the style of play, formation, player profile with regards to recruitment is what I mean by building a team around a player and Wenger did all of those things. All of those players I mentioned were indeed quality players and did complement him very well. The fact that we didn’t have enough depth and terrible defenders/goalies while Cesc was at the club is a completely different issue.You seem to be missing the essence of the post - the team being "built around Cesc" in your conception appears to mean that he had all the right tools for the job ala Messi at Barca, which couldn't be further from the case.
In reality Wenger knew that the only way to get through that barren patch is to play to clearly the best player in the squad's strengths. But this isn't "building a team around Cesc", this is simply mitigating a financial period sensibly.
If he had a team built around him, he'd have had much better players to complement his play style.
