All this talk about mentality is one thing but at the end of the day what the best teams have over everyone else is the answers on the fucking pitch. Lacazette is a finisher and that’s only useful if you even get that far in the first place.
Mentality is most valuable for times of adversity and whatnot but what we as a club fundamentally don’t have is a functioning team. And that, as we never stop saying, comes down to the manager and coaching staff.
We’ve had so many players come in over the years and the result stays the same if not worse. It can’t just be the players.
If teams are the sum of their parts we definitely have an abundance of great and good parts. But we have a key part or two in there with the worst defects and that just makes the overall machine itself becomes useless as a result. What’s a good graphics card like Lacazette going to do when you have a wank processor like Wenger?
As soon as we discard that Wenger component and replace it with a top of the line component in its place, the whole team would start to play to its potential.
