Our defence received great praise at the start of the campaign. But now it seems as though it is once again being put into question with some very shambolic defending as of late.
‘I hoped that (when Bould was appointed) he would do more with the defence but I’m not sure whether he’s being allowed to do that by Arsene Wenger.
‘I think there might be a rift in the camp between those two from what I’ve heard.’
Personally, I don’t think there’s a rift between the two. Whatever strategy had been set out at the start of the campaign was a pretty decent one – solid at the back and free-flowing moving forward. But as soon as our defence got shaky so did our attack. If anything Wenger would want Bould’s influx of ideas because they seemed to help a lot at the start of our campaign.
I’d say our poor defensive performances of late have come because of a few players not showing up to the game at very crucial times, not a rift between arguably the two most important men at the club.
