Arsenal conflict: Is Wenger too arrogant for not spending?

Hello and very good Sunday everyone. As we know, Arsene Wenger bristled when he was informed of Gary Neville’s stinging criticism of Arsenal’s “naive or arrogant” transfer policy in the 11 years since they last won the Premier League title. 

But the Gunners manager would be better off taking Neville’s criticism on board and examining it in more detail - because the former Manchester United defender is spot on with his assessment.

Arsenal still have 35 matches to correct their shaky start to the season, but in their first three games Wenger's side have looked miles away from winning the title.

Neville’s argument is that Wenger falsely clings on to a belief that Arsenal can return to the top with only technical players and that they have never replaced the physical dominance of the likes of Patrick Vieira and Gilberto.

Few Arsenal fans could disagree having watched so many lightweight performances since the 'Invincibles' tore opponents apart on a weekly basis in 2003-04.

In the interim, Wenger has tried to copy the model of Spain and Barcelona by relying on flair players. 

When it clicks, it looks brilliant, yet they cannot grind out results in the same way as their more physical title rivals like Chelsea and Manchester City.

Wenger strives for a utopia in which the Londoners can simply outplay their opponents every week. It is never going to happen and it’s not how you win the league. Santi Cazorla can buzz around all he likes, but he needs an imposing figure next to him when the going gets tough.

Ignoring the opposition might have worked for the 'Invincibles' but not only did they have the physical prowess that Neville cites, they were so good that they could play how they wanted.

It is naive to think that the current Arsenal team will always pass their opponents off the pitch.

It is arrogant to believe that Arsenal can win the league this season by signing only a goalkeeper after they finished 12 points behind the champions last term.

You could sense that attitude had crept through to the squad over the summer, too. After the players spoke about something “special” happening throughout pre-season, they were caught cold by West Ham on the opening day.

Wenger admits his side have made a “very average” start to the season with four points from their first three matches already leaving them six points behind City. It shouldn't be too much of a surprise when you consider that Arsenal have the same outfielders as last season while City have improved their already superior squad.

Arsenal's title challenge was blown apart long before Christmas last year after a poor start to the campaign and supporters will dread history repeating itself. It has happened too many times in recent seasons.

So how does Wenger plan to turn it around in the remaining week of the transfer window?

Wenger insists that he is only in the market for “exceptional” players to improve his squad and that is understandable in many respects.

The lack of top class strikers in world football means the club have focused on Karim Benzema as their main forward target this summer, with few alternatives that can provide a guaranteed upgrade on Olivier Giroud, Alexis Sanchez, Theo Walcott and Danny Welbeck.

But Wenger also turned his nose up at the £25 million pricetag for Morgan Schneiderlin earlier in the summer when the French midfielder could add the physicality and experience that Neville talks about. There are others out there who can do a similar job such as Grzegorz Krychowiak at Sevilla, who has been strongly linked with a move to north London.

"I can't think of a word to describe that bunch - I could but it wouldn’t be usable on television," Neville said about the Arsenal squad.

"They're certainly not what I would call what you want to win you a league, the powerful characters, the strength you need running through your team. 

"I just cannot get my head around why he would not sign players of power to assist these talented players you’ve got to enable them to win the league.

"It is the one big, if you like, black mark against Arsene Wenger in these last 10 years... to me it's arrogance - to think that you are not going to adapt your team to impact on the other teams you’re playing against. It is either naivety or arrogance because they keep losing this way."

Wenger has an enormous transfer budget - up to £80m - and he should be more ruthless, too. While Per Mertesacker is a good player and a great leader, there are plenty of central defenders out there that would improve Arsenal’s starting XI.

Petr Cech is an exceptional signing and showed why with two magnificent saves in the goalless draw with Liverpool on Monday night.

It is naive and arrogant, though, to think that Cech’s arrival alone will be enough for Arsenal to win their first title since 2004.

A German international emerged as a one of the most influenced captain as he is typical commanding type. Not just a captain for a club, but also for country,

2) Tony Adams

Referred to as Mr. Arsenal, Tony Adams dedicated his entire Footballing career to The Gunners. He became Arsenal’s youngest ever captain in 1988- aged just 21 years and 82, eventually leading the Club to nine major trophies, including League titles in three different decades.
Despite facing personal troubles, Tony was the optimization of leadership on the pitch, bringing the best out of his team-mates and putting himself on the line time and time again for the Club he so dearly loved and fought for.
After fourteen years as Skipper, and nine major honours, Tony finally retired in 2002, leaving behind a legacy of aggressive leadership and defending. His statue resides outside of the Emirates Stadium.

1) Patrick Vierra

In 2002, following the retirement of Tony Adams, Patrick Vieira took over as Club Captain. He was already a fan favourite, impressing the Arsenal faithful since his displays in 1996.
Patrick made history by becoming Arsenal’s first ever foreign captain. He led Arsenal with distinction, lifting the FA Cup in 2003 before Skippering The Invincibles in the 2003/04 season which followed.  At this time, Patrick was probably the Premier League’s finest midfielder, helping Wenger’s Arsenal become a major force in England and Europe once more.

My favourite Arsenal XI

Hello everyone, I been an Arsenal fan for such a long times and I always dreamed of managing them one day even day people looks it as a silly yet funny. So, this is my favourite Arsenal XI squad in entirely Arsenal squad in football history. It consists of 11 players starts on the pitch and seven players on the bench. Let's take a look on it:

GK- David Seaman

The goalkeeper for me is David Seaman. The peak of his career was during his period as Arsenal and England goalkeeper in the 1990s and early 2000s; during his time at Arsenal he won many medals including three league championships (1991, 1998, 2002), four FA Cups (1993, 1998, 2002, 2003), the League Cup in 1993 and the European Cup Winners Cup in 1994. 

CB - Sol Campbell

In 2001 he joined Tottenham's North London rivals Arsenal on a free transfer, and as a result remained a hated figure amongst many Spurs supporters for the rest of his career. In his five years and 195 appearances at Arsenal he won two Premier League winners medals and two FA Cup winners medals, encompassing the 2001–02 league and FA Cup double, and being part of the team that became known as The Invincibles for their undefeated 2003–04 Premier League campaign.

CB - Tony Adams

My favourite Arsenal skipper, Tony Adams spent his entire playing career of 22 years as a defender at Arsenal. He is considered one of the greatest Arsenal players of all time by the club's own fans  and was included in the Football League 100 Legends

RB - Lauren

One of the unsung heroes of the Invincibles side, right-back Lauren won five major trophies in seven seasons with the Club. The Cameroon star's versatility was also valuable. He filled in at left back and all across the midfield during his time at Highbury and showed the same calm assurance in every position.

LB - Ashley Cole

A complete left-back that bring a success such as he part of the "The Invinsibles" team. Hard to find a wing defender like him in this modern games

CM - Patrick Vierra

A strong midfielder, strong tackler, a fine reader of the game and able to distribute the ball with precision, it is also an advantage if he has stamina, leadership qualities and a formidable physique makes him the most complete midfielder in all-time Arsenal midfielder.

CM - Cesc Fabregas

One of the creative player in modern era, this maestro of midfield gives lots of creative option based on game needed. A dream midfielder for any team and I choose him as one of my favourite player.

RM - Alexis Sanchez

Signing for Arsenal at year of 2014, starts his career with full of promises as he bagging a 23 goals in his first season at Arsenal. Becoming fan favourite player and become an important player for Arsenal.

LM - Robert Pires

Pirès has played the majority of his career as a left winger, but can also play all across the midfield or in a position to support the forward line. won three FA Cups and two Premier League titles including the club's unbeaten season of 2003–04.

CF - Dennis Bergkamp

Joining Arsenal in 1995, he rejuvenated his career, helping the club to win three Premier League titles, four FA Cup trophies, and reach the 2006 UEFA Champions League Final, which marked his last appearance as a player.

CF - Theirry Henry

All time goalscorer for Arsenal, scores more than 20+ goals on his first season at Arsenal. He become a legendary of Arsenal with his goalscoring records for the Gunners with 179 goals in 259 games makes him one of the most best finisher in the Premier League.


GK - Jens Lehmann

Once spoiled for being shown red card in Paris for Champions League final that saw Arsenal lose in the end of the game, but his fantastic performance through season help Arsenal to win the title on that season.

  CB - Martin Keown

Tough Centre Back that once help Arsenal to win the titles, his consistent performance and good attitude in and off pitch makes him a special player.

CM - Santi Cazorla 

The rare player that can used both feet perfectly yet been gifted by technical ability become one of my favourite Arsenal player.

CM - Aaron Ramsey

Once been included in the ferocious injury, get back as a one of the finest midfielder in Europe with his outstanding stamina and energetic display yet makes him danger in the pitch.

RM - Theo Walcott

Pace, explosive run may added up more options to the Arsenal's typical through ball for more attacking threat makes Theo Walcott become man that hard to be mark in the game.

AM - Mesut Ozil

Genius, best no.10 in the modern era, Mesut Ozil unpredictable display will make the game more interesting with his simple flick, slight pass that becoming a danger for the opposite side.

CF - Robin Van Persie

"He scores when he wants", former Arsenal skipper Robin Van Persie well known as a clinical finisher in front of goal that frightened by the goalkeeper.

The Invincibles

Hey guys, today I want to talk about the incridbles of The Invincbles. Played 49, Won 36, Drawn 13, Lost None. The Arsenal squad which set a new unbeaten league record between May 2003 and October 2004 will live long in the memory and forever in the history books.
The Gunners' historic run actually began amid the ruins of a failed Premiership bid. Arsenal shook off the disappointment of a home defeat against Leeds which handed Manchester United the title to thrash Southampton 6-1 at Highbury on May 7, 2003. No one had an inkling about what would for. They had bags of character too. After being dumped out of the FA Cup and Champions League in the space of a few days, Arsenal bounced back from a 2-1 half-time deficit against Liverpool at Highbury in April 2004 to win 4-2 and stay on course for the title.Arsène Wenger had built a team to compare with any side in Europe. With Sol Campbell and Kolo Toure at the back, Patrick Vieira and Pires in midfield and Henry partnering Dennis Bergkamp up front, Arsenal had too much steel and too much style for their Premiership rivals.
Later that month Arsenal clinched the Premiership with a 2-2 draw at Tottenham. Success rarely tasted sweeter but there was still history to be made: Arsenal duly avoided defeat against Birmingham, Portsmouth, Fulham and Leicester to complete the first unbeaten league campaign since Preston's in the 19th century.
Nottingham Forest's record of 42 games unbeaten had stood for 26 years. Arsenal matched it on August 22, 2004 but so nearly blew their chance, digging deep to turn a 3-1 deficit into a resounding 5-3 victory.
Three days later Henry, Cesc Fabregas and Jose Antonio Reyes were on target as Arsenal wrote themselves into the history books by beating Blackburn at Highbury. Wenger's team extended their record to 49 games, scoring freely and playing some of the finest football the English game has seen.

                        This is some video about The Invincible of Arsenal. Watched it!

The run ended in controversy at Old Trafford as a harshly-awarded penalty spurred Manchester United to a 2-0 win in October 2004. But that defeat did nothing to dim Arsenal's achievement. Wenger's 'Invincibles' will never be forgotten. I must say the Invincibles squad is the best Arsenal squad all time! Really missed this squad though.

Top 5 successful academy player

Hello all, as we Arsenal football club established itself as a superb academy around the world. Lots of youngster were dreamed to play in their academy as Arsenal developed themselves as a football star. Look at players like Adams, Dixon, Bould, Winterburn, Parlour, Gibbs, Wilshere; they reflect those traits.

He is also one of the members in "The Invinsible" squad.

He came out of retirement in 2012 and briefly played for Combined Counties League Premier Division side Wembley in their FA Cup fixtures.

Fabregas may not be a local lad but he is a genuine product of the Youth Academy after moving on a free from the Nou Camp to north London aged just 16 and became Arsenal’s youngest player (at the time) when came on as a sub in the League Cup game against Rotherham. Schooled by the likes of Dennis Bergkamp and Thierry Henry, the Spaniard is an accomplished playmaker, goalscorer, was made Captain of the club age 21 and is certain to add to his tally of just one FA Cup in his time at the Emirates.
