Despite Arsenal’s less than convincing start to the new season, it seems that only 3 out of 10 supporters who responded to a poll in the British newspaper the Daily Star think that Arsene Wenger should be sacked right now. It is no big surprise that many fans are disillusioned after the Gunners only gleamed one point from their first two home games but a big win tomorrow against Stoke may change their attitude ahead of Arsenal’s opening Champions League game in midweek.
The polls findings were as follows: 46% of the nearly 28,000 voters felt that the Frenchman is still the right man for the job.
On the other hand, 30% of respondents reckon that he should be dismissed from his role as a new approach is needed.
Additionally, 24% felt that he should be sacked – but only if results were bad enough to warrant it.
There has been an outpouring of anger on JustArsenal against Arsene Wenger after he failed to bring in a new striker in the transfer window, but as Le Prof said ahead of tomorrows game: “To support the club and support the team is to stand behind the players,”
“It is not always expecting someone coming down from heaven to sort out all your problems.”
We all may as well face the fact that the transfer window is now shut, and the players we currently have in the squad will have to carry us through the season, so why don’t we all just concentrate on helping the team to do their best. There are still over 100 points at stake in the Premier League and many many Cup games to enjoy. Wenger has faith in our players and he knows them better than any of us and knows how to get the best out of them.
Let him and the players do their jobs and we’ll do ours by cheering them on….
