With Arsenal having sold Coquelin and Walcott in quick succession and being heavily linked to Manchester United’s Mkhitaryan (in a swap deal involving Sanchez) and Borussia Dortmund’s Aubameyang, it appears as though Arsenal are making some significant moves in the transfer market.
That said, I can’t help but feel that Arsenal will continue to underperform on the field, irrespective of the players the club recruits and sells, while the side has a manager in charge without a clear and PRAGMATIC vision of:
– how the team are going to regularly create clear goal scoring opportunities
– how the team are going to recover possession from the opposition
– how to accentuate the strengths of each player in the team and mitigate their individual weaknesses.
Unfortunately Wenger’s no longer has that clear and pragmatic vision, is to egotistical to admit it and gracefully exit and Arsenal’s executive are too gutless to bring this train wreck to an end.
Its a point wonderfully articulated in Arsenal Vision’s latest podcast. I strongly encourage all Gooners to have a listen.
