Wenger comments about Arsenal playing in the Europa League is the last straw by KM
Arsene Wenger… A man who said the league could be won without a match being lost. A man who actually did it. Can you believe how times change? There I am checking the usual sport news on the Daily Mirror and what do I see? A Wenger comment about how we should be playing Europa League as we have a better chance of winning it.
Now there’s a comment that lacks ambition. If I’m an Arsenal player I’d be gutted. I’d be like “what the hell am I doing here?”. No wonder top players won’t come to Arsenal. They know we don’t compete for trophies, and we have a manager in decline.
Ancelotti won’t last long in Madrid, Klopp’s Dortmund got destroyed by having their best players sold. Simeone is facing similar problems at Atletico. Any of these managers would be a huge improvement on Wenger.
We are cash rich. You know what? Mourinho was right. He made a comment to provoke Wenger by saying “Arsenal should be up there with us and Man City” and he was spot on. We should be. Why aren’t we there ? …….Well, there’s Arsene Wenger for you!
I’m sick of the excuses, sick of the false hope, sick of hearing about financial restrictions and how we are limited and cannot compete with the others. The only limitations in this club is the board and the managers lack of ambition. The owners of City spent probably a billion on a team that had nothing.
At Arsenal all that is required is a tactically adequate manager and a few good signings. Something one certain Frenchman cannot do. That’s it for me. It’s enough that we have to live with the shame of losing to a team with Toulalan who couldn’t run the second half and Berbatov who outran our defense. This is a joke.
Wenger needs to go. And we need to show ambition. We must finish in the top 4, then have Ivan call Wenger on the phone and tell him “Thanks for the memories Arsene, but it’s time to say goodbye”. Of course this won’t happen, because practically Wenger appointed Gazidis.
Wenger has the board in his pocket. The comments from Hill-Wood earlier this season, that we back Wenger no matter if he has a plan (good or bad) or no plan at all, says it all.
This is the reality at Arsenal. And it’s what is hurting me a lot more than the fact we are out of the Champions League…
