In Kown's words: Is Arsene Wenger interested in defending? From Shirley in Watford
The most important thing for Wenger is for his teams to play football and be creative.

In 2006, I was asked to come and work at the club. I helped out Pat Rice when they did defending sessions.

There was one player who was making positional mistakes that were costing the team goals.

I wanted to flag up these mistakes to the player by showing him the footage but Wenger did not want him to see it.

In Wenger’s view, if a player sees himself making mistakes the problem becomes even bigger his mind.

That can be the case when you are discussing a technical aspect of a player’s game, such as passing.

But when the problem is positional and concerns a player’s body shape or angle of approach, it is worth going into detail and showing the player where he is going wrong.

I felt that by not addressing the situation, it would affect the player’s ability in the long term.

I don’t know whether things have changed now but Wenger is very protective of his players. He treats them like his sons.

But if players keep making the same mistakes, that will cost the team.

Also of note is that the time when Keown was our defensive coach we went on a run of 10 games with clean sheets in the CL, reaching the final.

Could be any of them. But this is the mindset of the old fool. I played at a high level in amateur field hockey many moons back, and if the coach as I was progressing to the senior squad, an ex international, pointed out a mistake I, or any of the other lads were repeating, you said thanks and bloody learned and improved, hence effing coaching as in the coach's job, but Wenger fails to grasp the concept. No wonder the teams he puts out are so spineless if he throws cotton wool around his cosseted precious babies.

Nothing new there.

During the halcyon days of The French Spine, Wenger said that his coaching method is that he needed intelligent players on the pitch who will be given free rein to decide to interchange.
Plus Wenger's coaching method than an intense 5-a-side on a quadrant of the pitch to develop closed control, ball retention and quick one-touch one-pass football.

French Spine was a one-off and can never be replicated by any of Arsene Wenger's teams for the pass decade and more. Simply Wenger cannot afford to sign another Dutch Master like Bergy and highly technical, skillful and intelligent footballers like Henry, Pires, Vieira, Edu, Lauren, Fabregas, Rosicky and Hleb.

All of them were positionally inept at that time. Keown did seem to work wonders for that defence.

Should install a bunch of them to teach our forwards and attacking midfielders how to score.
