Learning from the Invincibles: why Transitional Identity is Vital if Arsenal are to Progress

Think back to the Invincibles Era and try to remember the brilliant moments that have come to encapsulate it. I’m guessing most had some modicum of direct, forward-thinking play that progressed us rapidly into the next phase of attack: how I define Transitional Play. It seems the best teams of late have had a clear […]

Why did Wenger change? The recent defeats have made me more pensive about our club than usual. I have said I am Wenger Out for some time here, but then I guess it’s part of my personality and my own vocational experience to be analytical. I have often been involved in roles requiring problem-solving/organisational operations, […]

‘Best Attack Ever’?! Arséne, your memory fails you

Arsene is a square peg and the players are a round hole. The Arsenal Way Fast, fluid attacking football, with an emphasis on counter attacking.

Leonardo Jardim – The perfect man to replace Arsene Wenger at Arsenal?

This article is in no way a reference point to my Wenger orientation. It’s just a glance at a future option for the Arsenal. Once a professional reaches the age to get a free bus pass its negligence not to look at replacements and it seems the gunners are already looking out for their next […]

Super Robert Pires – French Musketeer and Highbury Hero

Just a short jaunt back in the time machine, to the year 2000 for this week’s Highbury Hero, when Arsene Wenger paid £6,000,000 for one of our French Musketeers, the brilliant technically gifted, wide attacking midfielder Super Robert Pires. Robert had a very distinctive running style, slightly splayed feet with his mane of black hair […]

Having a narrow squad and a strong fellowship can backfire but it gave us the INVINCIBLES

I was reading “Invincible” by Amy Lawrence last night, I read the whole book in one go because I simply couldn’t stop turning one page after another: the feeling of pride was overwhelming, as was the amount of details given away by Amy. The importance of chemistry in the building of a team, the innovations […]
