For Wenger to speak about the Premier League title at this point is just evidence of how disconnected he is from reality. He never was in the PL race this season. Not even before the season started.
He had a poor transfer window electing to keep two players who don’t want to play for us. As a result, he destroyed large sums of money and didn’t replace them. Surprise surprise Sanchez is not the 30 goal player he was last season and Ozil only recently started to put in a few decent shifts.
There is no doubt Sanchez and Ozil are world class but not even world class players can be world class if they are unhappy where they are at. No one can be surprised Sanchez and Ozil are not at their best. Only a fool would refer to a contract. We are dealing with football players, not lawyers.
We still have the mental weakness that makes us throw big games away for short periods of time. We simply cannot show up for 90 minutes every game, and against Man United we didn’t show up till after the game was over. The effort afterwards turned out to be cosmetic only, even if it looked exciting it was not effective.
We have a weak defense and an odd and unconvincing midfield. (I think it is time to start planning for life after Xhaka because he will not rule a midfield like a Vidic or Kante – he is utterly unconvincing to me).
As long as Wenger is around we will fail spectacularly. When is the last time we assassinated a big team inside 14 minutes? We can only do that against small teams, and then only rarely.
Was there really any Arsenal fan who was naive enough to think after going behind 2-0 against a Mourinho team that we would come back and win? Is there really any real Arsenal fan who thinks we are in the PL title race? I am sorry but to me being a fan means being realistic and knowing your team and manager and this team and manager are not PL title material.
