That would be nice, but I'm done with hoping for anything. Que sera, sera.

*Disclaimer*
At the time of writing this comment, it's been only 20 minutes since my internet connection at home has (for now) started working again, after being out since Tuesday afternoon. Any submissions or comments you've seen from me for the past week has either been from my college campus or my aunt's house. That's 96 FUH QING HOURS of calling repeatedly and not getting the bloody problem fixed! On top of that, at the end of EVERY single call, the a$$wipe of the day claims he'll call back to let me know what's up, but I guess they all have Alzheimer's or something because they NEVER did, not ONCE!

Forget anything I've ever seen in football, I now know the TRUE meaning of the word "incompetence"!

Rant over. Sorry for the above off topic babble being so much more than the actual, relevant comment. Trust me, you'd be pissed too...

The first thing he has to do is make the team go back to a couple of years ago when they actually managed the ball better. Even if this means going from the Regular 4-3-3 formation to a 4-2-3-1 to get use to keeping control of the ball, then slowly start to get back to the 4-3-3 if they want. I however, believe that for this to work Wenger needs to get another Diaby or Song type player, because even though Diaby is good, he gets injured far too often. If he wont take Chamakh into account sacrifice podolski or Giroud. Also decide between Arteta or Wilshere for time being in the DM postion. Until Gibbs gets back Leave Vermaelen at LB and santos as LM to help him (he likes to attack more than defend, can help) until Vermaelen gets confortable. Koscielny and Mertesacker at CB and Sagna as RB.

The team that I'm Describing looks sort of like this. IMO it may help the team retain the ball better and break opposition attacks more effectively. When other players get fit or injured this may change, but for the right now this is the best I can do.

Goal keeper
Sagna - Mertesacker - Koscielny - Vermaelen
Frimpong - Wilshere
Arteta - Cazorla - Santos
Podolski or Giroud

Subs
Walcott
Podolsi or Giroud
Djourou
Jenkinson
Arshavin
GK

Injured
All other keepers
Diaby, Rosicky, Gibbs, Gervinho, Ramsey, The Ox,
