[Sky Sports News] “They’re spending a load of money - I’m not sure what the strategy is. It seems a little all over the place” Gary Neville questions what Arsenal’s transfer strategy is and says the club are still suffering from a hangover from their era under Arsene Wenger
Flashback: When Speaker of the House of Commons John Bercow told "Wenger out" Arsenal fans on AFTV in 2017, "Be careful what you wish for."
[Mark Bryans]: 8 of Arsenal's starting XI were at Arsenal when Arsene Wenger left.
On this day 10 years ago, Arsenal lost to Manchester United 8-2 at Old Trafford. It was the first time Arsenal conceded 8 goals in a league fixture since 1896, and it was the first time Wenger was asked if he would resign should results continue to go against him.
[Chris Wheatley] Arsène Wenger was at Liverpool’s training ground today to present Jurgen Klopp, Alisson, Virgil van Dijk, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Thiago with their trophies from the Best FIFA Men’s awards from 2020.
[OptaJoe] 20 - Mikel Arteta suffered his 20th defeat as Arsenal manager in the Premier League, in what was his 60th game - while Arsène Wenger didn’t register his 20th defeat with the Gunners in the competition until his 116th game. Gulf.
[Rio Ferdinand] "At the end of my career when I was leaving United, I saw Arsène Wenger in a hotel. I said, 'Listen, I'm leaving MUFC & if you want, I'll come & try & help the dressing room because I think you need help in that department."
Arsene Wenger (2017) predicting more players will run down their contracts in the future
Wenger on the penalty: "No penalty. I don't know why they didn't ask the ref to take a look. In a moment like that it's important that the referee is absolutely convinced, it was not clear enough. VAR has let the referee down."
Wenger: "We have to congratulate Mancini, he has rebuilt the team with a more technical attitude while keeping what made Italy strong historically, which is efficiency. Every shot on target is real chance. I like that in Italian strikers.
Wenger:"5 subs reduced the level of fatigue. With 3 subs, you only use 2 and save 1 for an emergency. It has reduced the difference between teams. There are less goals scored on counter-attacks with long runs. It's the tournament of short players quick and agile. Like Sterling, Insigne and Pedri."
Wenger: "Southgate has learned a lot from the World Cup. They look more stable defensively. But going forward he's still looking for the perfect solution. Not sure if Sancho will play in the semi-final. I like Henderson off the bench, because he plays very good balls forward from deep."
[Gunners] 20 years ago today, a surprise press conference was scheduled. Only two journalists turned up, both expecting the signing of Richard Wright from Ipswich for £2m to be announced. Arsène Wenger walked out alongside Spurs’ captain & best player - Sol Campbell. The rest is history.
[GFFN] Wenger: "I don't question the team's spirit. We relied too much on counter-attacking. In this tournament a higher than usual number of goals are being scored in play construction. We showed very little of that all tournament. Switzerland were effective with that." (BeIN)
[GFFN] Arsène Wenger on if Karim Benzema has lost his confidence: "Strikers always tell you no and they lie always."
Wenger: "It looked to me, being favourites for Man City was a heavy burden. They were too used to winning the ball back quickly, they couldn't do that tonight... Congratulations to Chelsea, a deserved win. Also we have seen a man who is above everybody else, N'Golo Kante."
[BeIN Sports] Wenger: It is a success to win a trophy, but your real quality is decided by where you stand in the championship. In your stadium you feel more comfortable. Arsenal has enough offensive potential to win the game. 2-1 is a result, you should be comfortable to change and reverse.
