Arsenal icon Graham: I would love to hear from Wenger on why he will not sign hard men

Arsenal legend George Graham just doesn't understand why Arsene Wenger refuses to add steel to his team.

It is Wenger's refusal to address the way that his current crop are all too easily bullied by the big guns which frustrates Graham the most.

The Scot, 66, admitted: "I'd love to sit down with Arsene, one-on-one, and ask him what he thinks of his great side that went the season undefeated.

"You look at the difference in technique, physical power and mental power.

"They had a wonderful combination, which made them such a successful team.

"Arsene had height in there, in Patrick Vieira, Emmanuel Petit, Tony Adams, Sol Campbell and Steve Bould and there was power throughout the team.

"I cannot understand why he doesn't try to replicate that now.

"It just seems they have gone overboard with technical players and have forgotten about the other side of the game."
