Mikel Arteta used lightbulb in Arsenal team talk before Brighton game as Gunners boss’s unique dressing room tactics continue in Amazon Prime’s ‘All o

The final episodes of Amazon Prime’s ‘All or Nothing: Arsenal’ reveal yet another unique team talk method used by Mikel Arteta. And this time, the Gunners boss takes it to the next level… bringing in an actual lightbulb. Arteta has a fascinating approach to team talksAFP From drawing hearts and brains on his flip chart, to getting the players to rub their hands together to create positive energy, the Arsenal boss’ pre-match motivators have been a fascinating part of the documentary. The fly-on-the-wall series shows just how much Arteta wears his heart on his sleeve and believes in the importance of the psychological side of the game. And his final match day team talk shown in the series is probably the most unique way he’s tried to connect with the players yet. With the season during to a close, the north London side had lost ground on securing a place in the Premier League top four after being defeated 3-0 by Crystal Palace. So, before his side faced Brighton, Arteta pulled something different out of his sleeve to help turn his side’s fortunes around… using a lightbulb analogy. “Edison invented the lightbulb,” the former Gunners captain said as he gathered the team together in the dressing room, lifting a lightbulb.

However, Arteta’s motivation tactics did kick in to gear eventually, with the Gunners winning five of their last eight fixtures. The final episodes of the series also reveal then-striker Alexandre Lacazette and Cedric Soares faced off in a heated Arsenal training ground bust-up as tensions flared at the Emirates.
