In a reversal of policy many observers have been demanding for a while, Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger abandoned his infatuation with youth in favor of signing experienced players in a last-ditch bid to bolster his ailing squad on transfer deadline day.
Wenger has built his reputation on spotting potential and bringing young players through the ranks.
But with the French coach under pressure at Arsenal like never before, he was forced to change his ways in a frenzied series of late trading on Wednesday.
