Can Arsene change?

Arsene Wenger is a manager who has shown himself to be a seasoned campaigner when it comes to English Premier League betting, bringing a new level of technical play to the Premier League and introducing diet and health requirements before many other managers had understood the benefits of such an approach. Yet as Arsene grows older, is it the case that he has grown increasingly resistant to any form of change?

Despite enduring his longest time at Arsenal without winning a major trophy, Wenger has maintained the support of the majority of Arsenal fans through his dedication to the principle of attractive football.

However, with supporters of the Gunners growing sick of witnessing the same defensive frailties and injury crises year after year, Wenger’s consistent refusal to go to his chequebook could well lead the team to another trophy-less season. That’s what some football odds are suggesting anyway.

With Wenger seemingly retaining faith in players such as Abu Diaby, a player seen by many fans of Arsenal as the epitome of Wenger’s refusal to strengthen the squad despite his consistently bad performances (that is when he manages to stay fit), even the boss himself has been forced to consider whether his young squad need more investment.

Yet, whilst this question is not a new one, with Arsenal fans suggesting the same thing over the last few seasons, it is finally being asked as to whether it is the team that needs to adapt or, if he cannot evolve his style, it is Wenger who needs to be changed.

With his side in need of a strong start to the season, and under more pressure than ever before from rival sides such as big spending Manchester City, Wenger is all too aware that he needs to find a winning formula and fast, even if that means changing his style.
