amir_keal 16 days ago 51 1998 It was impossible to get worse than 2011 Arsenal, so much bad things happen. That was the worst spell under Arsene Wenger's reign What are your views on this statement? I have to admit I massively disagree, and I personally enjoyed this era a lot. I admit, I did not follow Arsenal during 1996, because I could not. But I do know what we achieved. We won the double in his second year, double FA cup in 2002 and 2003. The PL in 2002 and many more. But if we were to compare them to today even, our team back them was simply better imo. We did finish higher in leagues and competed in the league and UCL. If we looked at the best sides, I think we had better XI in the past. https://www.buildlineup.com/shared/5af46c6e138c092e24ab411b - 2011 https://www.buildlineup.com/shared/5af46d1c138c092e24ab411e - 2018 Personally, the only places I currently see an upgrade is Cech, Koscielny himself, and Ozil for Nasri, and Mikitariyan for prime Jack. Auba as a player was better than Arshavin but I never feel he should be there. his career is known for ST. Although he is still better. I just can't help but feel Wenger could have been a thing for so long, but only the Wenger before 2013/14. That's when I believe the damage started to happen.
