Some Arsenal fans are not fans! by Sam P
Hindsight is a wondeful thing, so they say, but when it comes to the way that some Arsenal fans use it, I think it is a wonderful thing that Arsene Wenger could do without. And so-called Gooner Piers Morgan is the prime example.
The Gunners lost a derby match against Tottenham on Saturday and of course it hurt. The fact that it leaves Arsenal in sixth place and below our north London rivals makes it even worse. But did it merit the calls from Piers and others of his ilk for the club to sack the manager? Hardly. Injury problems? Blame Wenger. Bad weather? Blame Wenger. Lost your job? Injury at work? Where there’s blame…
We lost away to an in form side without our best player. We didn’t peform at our best and our opponents did although they had the benefit of some decisions go their way. Exactly how is Wenger to blame for this? Van Gaal was saved by a lucky injury time equaliser, Pellegrini was by Milner’s free kick and Mourinho was by an Ivanovic wonder strike. Wenger wasn’t.
The Prof could and should have expected more from his team, but these things happen and the Frenchman has faced and overcome them before. So Piers Morgan wants Wenger out does he? The same football genius who tweeted before the game that Harry Kane would not make our bench and the same man who called Aaron Ramsey every sort of name under the sun before claiming that he was just kidding when the Welshman proved him wrong.
A lot of the fans that were calling for Wenger’s head last year wanted Jurgen Klopp. But looking at the support he has got from the Dortmund fans in times of trouble I have to think he would be better off staying where he is. Maybe it is just as well that Wenger cares more about what his nextdoor neighbour is having for breakfast than he does about the knee jerk opinions of fans like Morgan.
