Arsenal: The Virtuoso






Hello to all. I’m back with a story in which I’ll take charge of my favoured team…





ARSENAL!!!


I’ll keep things fairly simple and try to reflect the club’s actions realistically with a hint of what I would do if I were Arsene Wenger, so for that reason my alter ego will be the man himself…





Arsene Wenger


This story originates from a save I already had, therefore it will be set in the summer of 2017. As you'll all see shortly, I've had my fair share of success with the Gunners but I want many more trophies, eyeing further European and domestic success.

Author's Note: Some of you may be a little confused as to why a few of the earlier comments on this story don't may not go with my updates. That is because I've decided to change my story slightly from a fresh Arsenal save to one I already had pre-2014/15 transfers. I didn't realise Glenn T had already started a story with Arsenal, so to get out of his way a bit more, I've decided to focus on a save in which the audience can engage and take note of what to do going into the future with their own saves. Sorry for the confusion!
Good luck mate! :))
Good luck :)

I always use a 4-2-3-1 with a DM, Fluid and Control. Player roles and instructions all depend on the attributes they have.
