Before Arsene Wenger took over in October 1996, George Graham’s Arsenal side were notoriously tough opponents to handle. Their back-five of Seaman-Dixon-Bould-Adams-Winterburn (not to mention Martin Keown) were revered in the league and very rarely conceded, let alone lost a game. Teams would fear facing them because they knew they’d be in for rough game.

Then of course when Wenger took over, Arsenal’s defensive solidity was paired with a continental attacking style which yielded double-winning squads and ‘The Invincible’s’ of the 2003-04 season. This is a far cry from the current Arsenal squad whose form, confidence and passion for the club frustratingly fluctuate from game to game.
