Is Wenger a Big Game Bottler?
So why the change of tactics in big game.
We have been playing 4-4-2 all season and have been playing well, Scoring loads of goals and top of the league, So why did we play 4-5-1 away to liverpool? We only really looked like scoring onces Theo and Bendtner came on and we went to our values of playing 4-4-2.
The first time Wenger did this was the FA cup final vs Man Utd and played Bergkamp as a lone striker in a 4-5-1,Even thou we won the game on pens for 120mins Man Utd battered us and we never had a single shot on target.
Yes I can understand the thinking behind this away from home, But Wenger even did this at home last season to chelsea which makes me think he would rather draw the big games then risk having a go and losing.
My point is this.
Playing 4-5-1 it makes us more solid in midfield yes but you take away the attacking flair. At times the lone striker has no support and we create nothing.
I would rather us stick to a 4-4-2 and having a good go at the big teams rather then pay them too much respect.
Let them worry about us, Why wait to we go 1-0 down and then change back to 4-4-2?
