Oh no doubt. And there's no doubt he had a really, really good season. Even when you broke it down into advanced statistics it was really impressive as I recall.
But that doesn't change what I said about it revealing poor judgment again on Arsène's part, and his overrating of the PL (it's a necessary delusion at this point, if he's to rate himself, he has to overrate the PL) and British talent.
Lots of Arsenal fans wanted Felipe Melo, Marouane Fellaini, Schneiderlin, etc. etc. Wenger thankfully was on the right side of those arguments but on this one not so, and it seems indicative of a problem with him in recent years which is that he's really somewhat English in his outlook on football.
