A lot can be remembered about Arsenal legendary manager Arsene Wenger, especially the good old days when he delivered titles and ensured good football, no wonder he is regarded as the most successful coach in the club’s history.
However, his last few months in charge of the North London outfit had a mixture of disappointments and frustration as he could not deliver the same kind of results as his early years.
The situation was bad that the Gunners could not secure qualification to the Champions League for few seasons before his exit.

Each time Arsenal lost a game under the former French manager, it looked to some fans that Arsene Wenger was never pained nor moved by the result as he always maintained his cool, amidst lashes, criticisms, and negative chants.
The notion that he was not really moved as a result of his look or countenance has been dismissed when he recently revealed that he used to be physically sick at each defeat.
He added that pains hurt a lot and the biggest pain comes when you lose a football game.
Arsene Wenger confessed that he never believed her would last on the job when he was a younger manager as a result of the pain.
Mikel Arteta told how he can feel more of Thomas Partey’s impact
Arsenal manager Mikel Aretta has been told that he can feel more impact from Thomas Partey’s presence on the pitch if he is able to secure the signature of Lyon midfielder Houssem Aouar.
The North London outfit were all out for the signature of Thomas Partey and Houssem Aouar but failed to land the France international, instead, they snapped up the signature of the Ghanaian international on the summer transfer deadline day by activating £45 million his release clause.
The French Ligue 1 outfit were uninterested in the bargain for Houssem Aouar, leaving no chance for the North London to make an attempt before the transfer window was shut in October.
However, Arsenal have been told by the club legend Ian Wright that the presence of Houssem Aouar will do a lot for the team as more would be enjoyed from the presence of Thomas Partey in the team.

Ian Wright noted that Thomas Partey is exactly the type of player Arsenal have been looking for and he will help to get Granit Xhaka and Dani Becallos to operate better especially with his interceptions and ability to calm situations in the middle.
What we cannot say at the moment is if the North London outfit will be moving in for Houssem Aouar again and whether his asking price will be higher or not.
It has already been revealed that the Gunners are not done with the rebuilding of the team by bringing in new players and that is expected to continue in the coming transfer windows.
Meanwhile, reports claim that the North London outfit are not alone in the chase of the France international again and will be facing competition from other teams when they return for his signature.
EPL: Frank Lampard gets another strike from Chelsea legend
Chelsea legend Alan Hudson is the latest to give manager Frank Lampard a strike over his tactics at the club and he is unsure if the Blues legend and lead the West London outfit to a Premier League title.
The West London outfit have continued to be inconsistent with the delivery of good results under the former Blues midfielder and more to that is the fact that they have conceded nine goals which is the worst defensive record in the history of the club.
Alan Hudson noted that Fran Lampard cannot be compared with the likes of Jurgen Klopp, adding that his tactics against Man United was wrong, the reason why he failed to win the game last Saturday.
The West London outfit recorded goalless draws in their Champions League game against Sevilla before the Man United draw to make it two successive clean sheets but that has not stopped Alan Hudson from criticizing the team.

Alan Hudson stressed that Frank Lampard has not learned lessons as he continues to make excuses for experienced players who are guilty of defensive blunders, noting that the same happened to Chelsea last season but for the fact that Liverpool were far ahead of most teams, it was unnoticed.
He added that the Chelsea boss will be more exposed because the likes of Everton and Wolves are better teams now and Arsenal are beginning to pick up again to close the gap that existed before now.
Reacting to the two goalless draw results from the Champions League and the Premier League games, Alan Hudson stated that Frank Lampard was desperate to correct his defensive blunders and had to stall out by not having adequate shots on target just to stop the opponents from scoring goals.
However, it is feared that Frank Lampard would be sacked if the results don’t improve in subsequent games.
EPL: Why Chelsea included Petr Cech in their PL squad
Petr Cech was a shock mention in Chelsea’s Premier League 25-man squad for the season as he has already retired from the game at Arsenal and holding a more technical position at the club.
The West London outfit had announced that the former Arsenal goalkeeper will join the club’s Premier League squad as a non-contract player alongside Kepa Arrizabalaga, Edouard Mendy, and Willy Caballero.
Describing the decision to include Petr Cech as a desperate one, a former Chelsea player Alan Hudson had stated that the development is a revelation of how terrible the club is at the back for a retired goalkeeper to be included in the team.

He also stated that Petr Cech is brought in because of his vast experience in the game and because the Blues team were unable to buy another goalkeeper in the last summer transfer window.
Alan Hudson took a swipe at manager Frank Lampard by stating that if John Terry was to be his assistant, he would have included him in the team as a centre-back because of the calamity of the defenders.
However, it is obvious that the West London outfit are struggling with the defenders and goalkeepers and that has been evident in their results since the start of the season.
In a bid to correct it, Frank Lampard made the decision to play Edouard Mendy ahead of the first-choice goalkeeper after his many blunders in the opportunities that were handed to him in the past and there are no chances he will regain that position again with a better performance of the new starter.
The possibility of having Willy Caballero having a major appearance for Chelsea is now very slim as he has been relegated except if the Blues boss finds him worthy of a playing time ahead of Kepa Arrizabalaga.
