    WENGER never learns
    You can predict an Arsenal season before it’s even begun.
    When it comes to tactics, Wenger is often found out.
    It’s taken him years to finally realise you need to give up some possession for being tighter in bigger games, but there’s still no real variation.
    Deluded quotes……..he said quote
    We have leaders in every position”
    Players don’t seem to believe in him
    In crucial games in a must-win clash the players didn’t seem bothered.

    He’s holding Arsenal back
