I wanted to substitute Alexis Sanchez at half-time but he insisted, admits Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger
That sums up Wenger’s gutlessness.
He is the manager who decides who is on the pitch.
When iI saw the line-up I expected to lose playing with ZERO defensive midfielders. So many should have played.
Even started Mertesacker & played Mustafi in front of the back four.
It’s not just losing matches, as there is no divine right to win, but it’s the numerous humiliations suffered which a club like Arsenal with its vast resources should not endure.
I also thought the midfield three was improbable and self-defeating.
Wenger really hates confrontations.
When Flamini came back to re-sign for Arsenal, he just went in and stated the financial terms he wanted. Wenger agreed immediately because he fears an argument so much.
