WHY 3-5-2 YOU SAY?
- BECAUSE IN EMERGENCIES IT CAN MORPH INTO A 4-4-2.
- ALSO THE FITNESS AND FLEXIBILITY OF PLAYERS NOWADAYS COMPENSATES FOR A STRETCHED BACK LINE WITH 3 CENTRAL DEFENDERS.
- ONCE UP IN SCORE ONE FORWARD OR CENTER DEFENDER CAN BE REMOVED AND BACK INTO WENGER'S FAVORED 4-5-1.
- INSTABILITY IS BUILT INTO THE FORMATION TO MAXIMISE THE USE OF WENGER'S 3 PRONGED ATTACKING MIDFIELD FERRARIS WHILE HAVING DECENT DEFENSIVE COVER.
- LIKE IN ALL THINGS AND CHESS YOU CAN'T DEFEND EVERY PIECE SO THE FORMATION WILL ALLOW THE ODD GOAL, THIS IS WHERE CECH COMES IN HANDY.
- THE REWARDS OUTWEIGH THE SHORT COMINGS BY GIVING A MORE DYNAMIC AND POTENT OFFENSE, WITH 2 FORWARDS AND 3 DEDICATED ATTACKING MIDFIELDERS.
- THE ADVANTAGE OF 2 FORWARDS, ESPECIALLY WITH ONE AS CHASER, WHO IS ALSO WILLING TO RUN DEFENSES INTO THE CORNERS OF THE PITCH. THE IMPORTANCE OF PREVENTING THE DEFENSE FROM HAVING UNMOLESTED POSSESION IN THE DEFFENSIVE 3RD IS UNDERAPPRECIATED IN "MODERN FOOTBALL". VERSUS ONE FORWARD HOPING FOR THE ODD CROSS TO HIS HEAD AND TOILING ON HIS OWN, WHICH IS ANTI FOOTBALL.
Arsenal manager claims lack of world-class forwards and reluctance of rich rivals to part with them is holding Arsenal back...
The Philosopher's Stone or the Evolutionary Self Inflicted Wounds.
When ones philosophical projections doesn't match the results, serious back tracking is necesary.
So Wenger says that there aren't enough good number 9s in world football, an evolutionary misfire. How is this conundrum possible by jove you ask?
Maybe Wenger should look in the mirror.
In this world of Christmas tree formations, this is what I call the 4-5-1 formation, some may call it something else.
Now all christmas trees have a central star perched at the top and all decorations are made to festoon it, and similarly in the 4-5-1, the Striker in this case Giroud is the Big Star and all Wenger's decorations are made to festoon him, hence no need for a no. 9.
This malady wasn't instituted by Wenger, but some see him as copying Jose Mourinho in this philosophy, and so everyone else follows because of what is presumed to be success.
So in essence no. 9s are modern sloths and squeezed out of the gene pool, so much for the differentiation of the species.
No. 9s are mercurial characters especially really good ones so they must be nurtured and developed, and born, they are a unique creation.
Modern football is just what it is, the safety of technological, data driven, folly.
Football is football.
To really improve the game to neutralize modern fitness levels, my solution is to stretch the field and goals, REVOL-UTIONIZING THE GAME.
BUT ALAS, THE PHILOSOPHER'S STONE IS ROLLING DOWN HILL AND PICKING UP SPEED, AND GAMBLING AND SELFIE MOSS, CRUSHING EVERYTHING THAT IS GOOD ABOUT THE GAME.
THE JOY IS GONE....
OR IS IT???..
Let us acknowledge the LORD. Let us press on to know the LORD. As surely as the sun rises, The LORD will appear. He will come to us like the rain, Like the spring rain that waters the eretz."
"Efrayim, what shall I do to you? Yehudah, what shall I do to you? For your love is like a morning cloud, And like the dew that disappears early.
Therefore I have cut them to pieces with the prophets; I killed them with the words of my mouth. Your judgments are like a flash of lightning.
For I desire mercy, and not sacrifice; And the knowledge of God more than burnt offerings.
