Giving Arsene a new contract is rewarding failure. by Konstantin Mitov
Okay, so the wind is calm before the storm, but this summer will be as disastrous as the summer before it, and the one before that and just like this season, nothing will change for the better. We finished 5th and it doesn’t matter if we had 90 points, being fifth means Europa League.
With the state of contracts Ozil, Sanchez and the Ox are, this isn’t really helping. The owner won’t sell, which is another huge disaster for us and we have an FA cup final coming up, which I couldn’t really get much excited about, because even if by a miracle, and I do mean a miracle, we win it, what does it mean? Nothing.
Because ultimately this club should be about bigger things, but to be honest looking at some fans, who care more about the state of an employee at the club called Arsene, rather than the club itself I wonder really if everyone cares about success.
Arsene was paid nearly 100 million pounds in the past 10 years and he’s achieved virtually nothing. He doesn’t do it for free here so I am bemused why people care so much about him? Isn’t it more important who will be playing for us next season and how we can cut the ever increasing gap between us and the top?
Giving him a new contract means rewarding failure, because we’ve been going downhill for at least 5 years. We started the season unprepared due to Wenger’s own words and that cost us in the end. What makes you think this season will be different? Arsene said, we need 1 or 2 players to compete. What a laughing stock. We needed 3 players when we only bought Cech, now we need at least 5 to replace the average players spreading around the team sheet.
It’s time Walcott, Ramsey, Gibbs and Giroud all pack their bags, because they are not good enough. Add Mertesacker, Debuchy and Perez, who I feel sorry for not being given any sort of a chance here, but hey, Arsene only bought him to say, look I bought a forward, which is just stupid spending of money if you won’t use him. Add to the fact Alexis and Ozil will leave and that makes it even more difficult.
We’ll likely buy 1 or 2 unknown players, hoping they turn to the next Ronaldo or Messi, when instead we need to buy more players like Sanchez, who can handle the pressure of playing for this club. But again, I feel like a lot of fans feel that we are a club made to serve Arsene, rather than the other way around. We are a business that serves only to provide cash for it’s owner, but even so, with a better manager, we’ll still do a lot more than what we are now. Look at Atletico Madrid, look at Dortmund,
Look at Juventus! They don’t spend like Real do, but they will play them in the final. It’s about behaving like a top club. We are Arsene’s plaything. The main reason he has to go this summer for me is not his tactical inadequacy, not his late substitutions, not his bad fitness management, but above all – his comments.
The way he devalues success, ignores problems, never, not once, has he taken the blame for a bad result and the insulting behavior towards the fans are a major reason for him to be released. This club uses us fans for cows to drain milk. The Fa cup final has to be about sending a message! A clear message to a board who’ve remained silent for so long, it will soon turn into something worse.
We’re living in the past and we’ll lose the FA cup, but worse, if we win it, it will be used as an excuse to paper over the cracks. Why didn’t he just sign the contract when it was offered and announce it publicly? It would’ve helped immensely in uniting the fans and the players, because we’d know what’s going on. This is my only hope, that something might change. I doubt it though. This is the worst time to be an Arsenal fans in many years, but sadly it will now be the standard.
