Our friends at Arsenal Fan TV look at the match against Dortmund again; something I don’t want to do because it’s like picking an old wound *sigh*
However, listen to what Cookie has to say about our new formation, and what he thinks Wenger should change. Personally, I don’t think we’ve eased into the new formation and we don’t need testing a formation we’re not very familiar with against big teams.
Meanwhile, to reiterate my point, here’s what other Arsenal fans said yesterday:
And Dortmund was basically playing with their B team, without Reus, Hummels, Gündogan, Piszczek, Blaszczykowski and Sahin. They weren’t even playing Kagawa. Arsenal spent more than twice as much money as Dortmund during the transfer window and they can’t even come close to Dortmund. Something is wrong…i had a similar discussion yesterday i think adding someone with strength isnt a bad choice but to me its more of a formation change and more defensive minded qualities need to be added to the team its not soo much we need a “tank” in the middle because playing the same formation and bringing in a player to hold our mid on his own will get ruined like arteta too .. arteta is a very good player with great leadership and no one will realise that because he isnt built to a solo role in the middle hes more like fabregas who needs a matic next to him .. but there we go wenger wont change his style and his “home game” football tactic hes been playing for the past 9 years in EVERY single game near enough EVERY single game is just being sussed out now .. hes not got the brain to keep up with modern football anymore .. even younger managers can adapt to tactics better now such as martinez for everton and tim sherwood who managed spurs .. wenger is useless now
