Davíð bendir í kommentum við síðustu færslu á algjörlega frábæra grein um Arsene Wenger og samanburðinn við Rafael Benitez. Að mörgu leyti er hún svipuð og [greinin hans Kristjáns Atla](http://www.kop.is/2008/04/06/18.01.04/) frá því um síðustu helgi, en það er líka frábært að sjá að blaðamenn í London eru að átta sig á hlutunum sem að Kristján Atli benti á.
Greinin heitir [3 games when Wenger myths were exposed](http://www.mirror.co.uk/sport/columnists/reade/2008/04/12/3-games-when-wenger-myths-were-exposed-89520-20380458/) og ég mæli með því að ALLIR lesi hana frá byrjun til enda. Ég ætla samt að leyfa mér að koma með nokkur kvót úr greininni.
>Wenger has clearly needed to dip into his £60million war chest but refused to on the grounds it might upset the balance of a team of kids who were developing together. Another myth. Most aren’t kids anymore. The average age of the starting line-up at Anfield was 25.
>The Frenchman’s real moment of truth will come tomorrow if he fails to beat Manchester United, meaning his trophy haul these past four years comprises one FA Cup. Benitez can match his FA Cup over the same period, throw in a European Cup and possibly add a second one next month. So how come Wenger is perceived in this country as one of the great managers of modern times yet Benitez is consistently derided?
>The Spaniard recently masterminded wins home and away against Italian league leaders Inter Milan. Wenger beat their ageing Milan rivals (who lie 20 points behind them) in the San Siro but failed to do so at the Emirates. Yet whose achievement had English football in raptures? Wenger’s of course.
>The Arsenal boss rested five first-team regulars against Liverpool last Saturday to keep them fresh for Europe. It cost them the points which probably cost him the title but no one said a peep. When Benitez did that earlier in the season he was slaughtered for being a Tinkerman.
>Liverpool clawed their way back into Wednesday’s game via Sami Hyypia’s free header at a corner, yet no one pointed out the deficiencies of Wenger’s man-to-man marking system. Whenever Liverpool concede from a set-piece, Benitez is savaged for employing zonal marking.
>Maybe, now the blood is drenching the boardroom carpets, they will realise civil war has been raging at Anfield all season, and Benitez has been caught in the middle. His mental health publicly questioned, judgments undermined, spending ridiculed and forward planning sabotaged. They even admitted to actively seeking his replacement.
>Yet his reserve side has just walked the northern section of the Premier Reserve League league, he stands on the brink of a Champions League Final and qualification for next season’s competition. I’m sure his many critics will dismiss it as a fluke. Just like his two La Liga titles and UEFA Cup wins were at
Útstrikun og leiðrétting mín.
Ég endurtek að ég mæli með því að menn lesi alla greinina.
