Arsenal Invincibles – Part One

I get a lot of people asking me to update certain articles I’ve done in the past and for most parts, they actually don’t need updating. However one of the more popular things I wrote about was the Arsenal Invincibles, but this isn’t uploaded anywhere any longer until now. So I thought, how about I re-upload all the old stuff for you to digest and then add a new section to it, explaining how the new roles change how I approach the original set up I created.

The tactic I’ll be using is the one discussed below so I think it’s an ideal time to post this now as it covers some of the basic issues I had at the start of the last year. Things should be the same now I imagine, nothing’s changed much. Continue reading A Change of Direction – The 3-4-2-1
