Arsenal are in a fair position looking at their stats. by KM
Hello everyone. So this is another season that painfully slowly but surely Arsenal are heading back for the usual fourth spot. And as every Arsenal fan, although little I had some hope, despite deep inside me knowing that it will hardly happen, I thought the rest were so bad, we’d win at our own game, but no.
We lack a number of important qualities that a team becoming champions needs. One is leadership. Name one person on that team that’s a true leader? Ozil, Sanchez, Cech? Koscielny? It was an embarrassment watching us on Sunday.
The moment a team fails to lose by themselves playing against us, we crumble. Since the Liverpool game, we played numerous games, where we produced the same bad performances over and over again, but our position close to the top was an easy excuse.
This brings out the lack of character. We’ve turned around only two games this season! The two against Leicester ironically! But even so, we just seem incapable of playing once any sort of pressure comes on. When we concede we completely abandon play and hope things will go our way out of nothing.
The teams that won the title under Wenger all had leaders! But Wenger inherited them! The teams he assembled by himself have won two fa cups in 10 years! We lack desire and hunger, key qualities if you want to win it. We have the worst attack of the top 4 clubs. We can’t score, can’t turn around games, don’t have a championship mentality. You can’t expect to win the title, without all those qualities.
It’s baffling when you think, we have 2 world cup winners, a Champions league winner and people who won the FA cup and the Community shield two seasons in a row, that all those qualities are missing. And last but most importantly the manager who is completely exposed. Everybody knows how to beat him.
He is immortal. He’ll be here for another 10 years, because there is no power that will take him down. That’s the reality. Change starts with him. Because even if we continue to be a club that doesn’t spend, we might at least bring in some adequate tactics and a new style of play, because this one clearly doesn’t work.
Who might take it? Brendan Rodgers, Roberto Mancini or someone else? Mourinho and Diego Simeone are the other big names left. Which one of those would you take? I’d take any of the latter two. We need to roughen up. But it won’t happen. Wenger would not allow it. If he ever leaves, he’ll do it Fergie like and probably appoint a pal of his.
This will be really sad. We’ll hire another yes man, but you know what, whoever it is I’m ok, I just want change. Wenger bought only ONE player in the summer! If Leicester or Tottenham win the title, he simply has to be sacked. But that’s what logic says! At Arsenal we don’t do things by logic, we do them by money.
Wenger is a millionaire who brings money to a billionaire. That’s all at the expense of the fans, and Wenger and the board don’t event have a problem to come out and say it in a press conference. Sadly though it doesn’t look like anything will be different next year.
