Difficult Seeking Captain Abadi for Arsenal
Mr. Arsenal, so nicknamed to Tony Adams is so identical to the defender with the club from London Agen Casino Online.
A total of 19 years spent Romford-born figure with Arsenal. There is no other club in Adams curriculum vitae as a professional footballer.
Do not forget also, as many as four Premier League titles, the first caste English League, won Arsenal under the leadership of Adams as captain. He even outperformed Arsene Wenger’s three league trophies for 21 years at the club.
Adams, the team beralanas the Gunners as difficult to find the figure of the eternal captain. Since 2002 or in the last fifteen years, Wenger has named eight names to take on the role of leader.
They are Patrick Vieira, Thierry Henry, William Gallas, Cesc Fabregas, Robin van Persie, Thomas Vermaelen, Mikel Arteta, and Per Mertesacker.
Of the eight names, none have served more than three years. The longest duration is Patrick Vieira and Cesc Fabregas.

Most of them just fled to another club after being given the trust by Wenger, take the example of Vieira, Henry, and Vermaelen. Van Persie even worse because it crossed to Manchester United which incidentally rival status.
Finally, Mertesacker announced he would retire and take care of the club academy after the 2017-2018 season runs out.
“This is the beginning of an exciting new round for me, I am happy to be part of the Arsenal family,” Mertesacker told the club’s official website.
That is, the routine of replacing Arsenal captain two or three years once again continues. The tradition can be longer because candidate successors are Laurent Koscielny, who is now a deputy.
Keep in mind that the age of the last name owner is 31 years old. With a head of age three, Koscielny feared to resign two or three years after he served as captain.
Short duration of a captain is also regarded as one “harm” in Arsenal. Because the leader was less influential, Wenger was too powerful.
“There is a lack of leadership at Arsenal, nobody can make a decision, who’s taking the decision, just Wenger, he can decide what he wants,” said Ian Wright.
In fact, in the Adams era, Wenger was silenced. He was determined to implement a 4-4-2 formation when Arsenal lost to Borussia Moenchengladbach in the UEFA Cup party, 24 September 1996.
It is said to be desperate because the Arsenal players have never honed the formation of four defenders in practice sessions. The admiration draws protests from Adams, who claims to be uncomfortable with a four-player rear system.
“We only used three defenders when we won the last party against Liverpool at Anfield and won the league in 1989. There are only me, Bloudie and O’Leary,” said Adams.
Wenger was obedient. He returned the formation of three defenders until the season ended. New in his second year, the tacticsman carrying four defenders.
With a term of two or three years, a captain would doubtfully speak out loud.
Although no longer at Arsenal, Adams actually often voiced criticism to Wenger. He sees that Wenger is more concerned with matter than trophies.
Yes, since Adams left, Arsenal won just one league title in 2003-2004. After that, they have to endure thirst for more than a decade.
Still, Wenger is sustainable. He gets a two-year renewal of his life to continue playing the club. However, without an enduring captain, can Arsenal win the long-awaited title?
