Manchester United have shown Arsenal the way to success! Doing the double playing with natural wingers in Ronaldo and Nani. In both they have players who can score goals and create something out of nothing. Something Arsenal have not had since Pires. Credit to United for playing 4-4-2 last night and really going for it in the final, At times over the years Wenger has been far too negative in big games and played 4-5-1.
Last season he seemed to uses 4-5-1 in most of our games after Van Persie got injured. Even when Eduardo took his chances and started to score goals as a striker AW still continued to play him out wide on the left of a 4-5-1. I really hope that Wenger started to play with natural wingers again. Eboue, Diaby, Denilson are not wingers, Remember when we use to have Overmars,Freddy and Bobby on the wings scoring 15 goals EACH a season? Eboue played most of last season as a winger and didnt score a single goal! When we went 49 games unbeaten we played every game 4-4-2 being positive and having a good go at teams from the start. I dont see why we have to play 4-5-1 at home to teams like Everton or Wigan or Birmingham? If we have a go at them teams from the start and score and early goal then they have to open up and attack us. Then we can hit them on the counter and score the 2nd and kill the game off.
I think Wenger has to go out and sign a natural winger this summer and for me Shaun Wright-Phillips would be perfect. It would be great to see Wright ( 8 ) again at Arsenal!
Lets get back to basics, Man Utd have shown us how its done, its now down to Wenger to do this rest!
