Arsene Wenger XI


#1

Cool little feature on BBC Sport

I was surprised to have hardly picked any players from the second half of his reign, not even the likes of van Persie, Sanchez or Ozil


#2

No Cashley?


#3

Pretty much the same as Leper


#4

How is that surprising? Champions and invincibles vs chronic underachievers.


#5

lol Almunia is not even a option.


#6

The thing is though, Wenger didn’t buy Bergkamp…

Yes, i’m being that person, lol

Ah, it’s a played under Wenger XI

Oh this is too hard :grimacing:


#7

I desperately want Ian Wright in that team as well, but you can’t shove Henry nor Bergkamp to the bench.

#9

Got to be one off the hardest teams to make with so much quality to choose from. Having to leave players like kanu, Wright, pirez our off the team

#11

This is mine too


#12

found it quite easy tbh.


#13

What a team!


#14

#15

Would you pick Cesc in yours?? Plus I always loved Winterburn.

There have been great players in that time though. Didn’t think I’d fail to include Ozil.


#16

An impossible task, think I changed my mind about 5 times before settling. And even looking at it now, could change half the team almost.

I went more for players that Wenger either moulded or rejuvenated, with a bias for the Invincibles side. Hated leaving out Gilberto, Santi and Ozil but can’t fit them all in:


#17

This was hard I could not pick between pores or carzola, but the small man won because of that in my opinion he adapted his game to become such a pivitol midfielder for us


#18

Indeed, Cazorla was hard to leave out. Very few players raised the overall level of the team like he did, we were so much better whenever he was in the side.


#19

Unfortunately, yes. Mines the same as yours except Cashley for Nigel.

The BBC lads helpfully did it for me,
