This is a subject that has intrigued me for a long time. When we talk about stupid players or a tactically clueless manager or a greedy board or a crap journalist or even corrupt refs…and point that to be THE reason Arsenal is underperforming…it really doesn’t show you the whole picture.
Now at Untold we have a number of different article categories and all of those are very valuable individually. However, since we look at them just like that, as an entity in themselves, the true value of the research doesn’t come out. You see it even with the ref reviews; the moment there are conclusions drawn from collected data, the reviews become much more valuable.
So in this article, what I have attempted to do is to create a diagram which depicts every single factor that affects the success (loosely used) of Arsenal as a whole. I don’t claim it is complete but I have made an effort to make it as comprehensive as possible.
The point really is, if over a period of time we can reach a stage at Untold where we can draw reasonable, largely factual calculations on all of these factors, we will then truly be able to pinpoint the exact problems that Arsenal faces and the true solution to all of them.
Again, its not perfect and I’m happy to collect feedback and add/modify/delete/rewrite entries in it or make it even more readable in a future article maybe. For now though, I wanted to get all of your thoughts – Do you think this exercise is useful and a good start to trying to achieve the goal I have in mind?
For those interested, in modifying this, I’ve used a program called FreeMind. I’ll be happy to provide them with the raw file so they can edit it and improve it. Drop in a comment and we can find a way to get in touch : )
