Re: Our young players

Yeah lets give wenger some credit here. After all if he had left us with a decent squad then none of these promising youngsters would be getting a chance in the first team, let alone being relied on week after week. Genius.

I'm not giving him credit for anything Rob. I'm saying if he doesn't deserve credit for Martinelli and Saliba then he can't really deserve blame for Luiz, Ceballos, Tierney, Torreira, Lichtsteiner, Pepe, Suarez or Sokratis, or the fact those players aren't better than the ones they replaced.

You might say you don't blame him for those players, but you and others do blame him for our ongoing decline, which kind of means you do hold him responsible for the arrivals because the recruitment is undeniably linked to the fact we have gotten a lot worse.
