Yeah but has that ever worked for us? Conte rediscovered Victor Moses last year. When was the last time Wenger rediscovered someone by playing him out of position. And I think he has done that more than most managers in the business. Wenger used to regularly play Ramsey, Wilshere, Fabregas, Diaby, Denilson etc. on the wings. Were any of them better because of that?
Does the fact that he is consciously applying such tactics mean that his tactics are good? Do you have to always make unconscious mistakes in order for them to be mistakes?
If he had proper players (+ backups) for each position on the pitch, maybe he wouldn’t have to revert to using Oxlade on the left because “he can play there”.
