- His inflexible mind and tactics
Gone is the time when Arsenal was invincible, and they played a beautiful game of football. Wenger has been following the same policy since the dawn of time, carve out an attack after a series of passes.
This cannot be implemented if you are playing against a team like Barcelona or Bayern who are more direct and rely on instinctive football at times. His 4-2-3-1 formation just doesn’t fit the context as Olivier Giroud is nowhere near the class of Thierry Henry or Dennis Bergkamp.
