the answers given mostly make no sense to me

oh right - finishing ahead of loads of clubs on bigger budgets, which clearly requires no preparation

er no - that 'regression' + points gap is just last season, not every season (and not a great example as positionally we actually improved by one spot which kept us in the CL)

lazy - seriously? you're going to go with lazy
. Our manager has many flaws. Nobody with the vaguest semblance of a clue believes this is one
Arrogance.....pure and simple arrogance
The man believes without exception that he is always correct
is much more believable than the inane 'lazy'
and Wenger, like most good leaders has a big streak of arrogance and self-belief which can hinder as well as help him.
so he doesnt see the need to have his new signings ready for day 1
is pretty foolish - you also think he has deliberately hamstrung himself, a bonkers claim
Of course only part of this arrogance is his fault cos if you go unchallenged when you make mistakes by either your employers or their customers then feeling untouchable is a natural progression from there
Maybe, and it is only a maybe, but maybe if the day arrives that he is truly held accountable and asked to explain/justify his decisions then we might start to see a change in his mentality but sadly i fear that boat has long since sailed
I don't think any sensible owner will ask him to explain/justify finishing ahead of all but the Manc millionaires
