Ramsey - ✘
Monreal - ✘
Cazorla - ✔
Bellerin - learn to defend
Xhaka and Cech and Ospina - ✘
Szczesny - ✔
Formation (4-3-3) - ✔

The Mountain that Rides wrote:Obviously good movement and creating overloads is anathema to good defensive positioning, especially if the players are just told to express themselves and figure things out when they haven't been given any of the tools needed to recognise what a tactically astute manager is up to - because Wenger lacks these tools himself.

Good positional sense would need to be coached into their attacking play, and Wenger has no clue how to do this, nor even the ability to recognise that this is necessary. Plus good communication is necessary to defend well and, unlike Tony Adams, our current players are the sort to mime along to national anthems, not belt them out like Tony Adams used to do. Which is indicative of their attitude towards shouting to each other about picking up runners, positioning etc as well. They're just not outgoing enough to do what is needed.


I guess my main point is, defensive positioning etc. is a bit more coachable than attacking. defending is essentially providing pressure with cover and balance that protects line to goal and space to goal. it's a universally coached approach to defending. the only two dogmas that oppose each other are whether to sit & absorb (w/counter attack) or to press high in the opponents half to gain possession closer to our attacking goal.

attacking on the other hand can be looked at in so many different ways, much more than defending. and yes while positioning is coached, it's the movements and interchange of play that become more complicated. and the success of the attack is based on the intelligence of the players.

so in short, I can take a bunch of half wits, train them to defend better than I can with the same half wits to train them to attack. that's why I'm confused as to why wenger is struggling to establish some semblance of a solid defensive approach.
cheers!

Usmanov has made a big offer to buy #afc but Kroenke not keen on selling as it stands. Improved offer or no CL could change things.


With competition is higher than ever Stan can see that top4 is a not sure thing so every year CL wont gonna happen which would decrease his demand.

Kroenke and Wenger both gone at the end of the season could turn this in to one of the best seasons of all time

Usmanov has to happen

Huge news but tbh I dont expect much to come out of this. Kroenke will keep his cash cow and milk it as much as possible.

IF Usmanov does take over, I wouldnt mind Wenger staying another year. Usmanov would whip him into shape.

Sounds like wenger is getting fired, no wounder hes keept quiet fro months, didnt want to admit theres no contract on offer which is what ive been saying. False news story to keep the players settled. How can the board not know if they want him to stay, this has never happened before, im sure they've made their decision.

If we can get rid of Wenger and Kroenke, that would be amazing, especially if Usmanov is prepared to invest. Finally, a long term economic plan under a strong and stable manager, in the club's interest would take us to new heights. We might be able to finally change the coalition of chaos that is our defence at the moment.

There is a contract, but they will only give it if he gets top 4, and depending on the mood of the fans. It was top 4 + FA Cup, which meant no chance for Wenger, as I said earlier, but apparently Wenger's shown some "improvement" according to the board with the 3-4-3, and they think he has "brought a new formation which will allow for a better title challenge." Bullocks, but if he doesn't get top 4......
