Stewart Robson has warned Arsene Wenger he needs to have a major shake-up of his Arsenal side if he wants to end the club’s trophy drought.
Following a 4-0 defeat to AC Milan in the Champions League this week, the Gunners' only realistic chance of ending their seven year wait for a trophy is through winning the FA Cup.
Reports have suggested this week that Wenger was so furious with his side’s performance at the San Siro that he is ready to axe a whole host of stars this summer including Theo Walcott, Andrey Arshavin, Marouane Chamakh, Sebastien Squillaci, Tomas Rosicky and Park Ju-young.
And Robson agrees with this sentiment claiming the current crop are just not good enough to challenge at the highest level, and Wenger must admit that if he is to lead the side back to the top.
“He can’t complain that it’s not his squad, not his players, not his philosophy or not his vision because he’s been there for 15 years,” said Robson.
“These are all his players and this is all his doing. He’s had some great years but I’m not sure with this side that he is going to have too many more great years.
“I think it’s time that Arsene Wenger has a good look at his squad and he has got to realise that some of these players aren’t good enough.
“And he has also got to realise that his philosophy and his vision has to include some defensive work and that is not being done at the moment.”
