When you’re the manager of a football team, you know how hard it is to properly motivate your players and how difficult it can be to keep the ball rolling. Not only that, but you have to worry about people snatching your good players up, you have to constantly come up with game winning plays and every single one of your players has a personal life that comes into play as well.
This winter, the Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has struggled to prove that he has what it takes. This sent him scrambling back to the drawing board to figure out what went wrong and how he can improve for the next season. However, all doesn’t seem lost as they scored a 2-0 win over Everton and with this win, Wenger believes he has found a formula for success.
It’s not all been Plain Sailing – one of the biggest mistakes Arsenal made this season was not signing a single outfield player. Arsenal has been coming up short in that regard, so this probably shouldn’t be a mistake that’s made again if Wenger wants to retain his successful track record. His original plans have been completely ripped to shreds and Wenger knows that there’s room for improvement.
There’s been key changes and formula changes through the team such as Per Mertesacker being dropped from the centre back and Mohamed Elneny being placed directly into the middle of the park. Several team members have gone through a shift in their role as Wenger believes they will perform better there. However, this shouldn’t rule out transfers to obtain more experienced players in the fields Wenger is trying to relocate.
Wenger needs to shift priority and find a player that not only has Elneny’s discipline and approach to the role he plays but he needs to find someone slightly more talented for the role he’s trying to fit. There’s numerous people up for grabs this season so he better get started and crunching numbers for potential players so that Arsenal doesn’t have another disappointing season.
