What would the club need least in these trying circumstances? A good answer would be for an experienced international centre-back to wrap both arms around an opposition striker in plain sight of the referee with only 10 minutes on the clock. No manager can legislate for this kind of aberration, unless he threatens to lock any player guilty of such a reckless act in a dungeon for the rest of his life. And Arsène Wenger, we know, is not that sort of manager..
