People at Arsenal don’t get what this football club is about. by Konstantin Mitov
I am really depressed talking about Arsenal, I really am. It feels pointless to talk about the club as long as Arsene is here. But apart from that I really believe people don’t understand what Arsenal is about. This was a big club. And ws also an important one.
Arsenal has now become a mediocre club. And the players we will add next season will be even more depressing. Paul Merson made an excellent point. When we played at Highbury we had Lauren, Lemman, Henry, Bergkamp, Lujngberg, Pires, Vieira and so on. We have one genuine world class player in Sanchez right now, who else?
I won’t bother watching next season at all if the Frenchman remains in charge honestly. The way he devalues success is impressive really. Success is nothing. Nothing is anything here. Just Arsene, we could even rename this site, so it’d be more accurate. We need people with ambition to step up here and clean up the mess.
Arsenal looked like a fantastic job to take a few years ago or even at the start of this season, but now. Accept mediocrity. It’s all you are getting for the highest prices of tickets in world football. I would like to make a list of players who I think at least did something that deserves them to stay here.
I have to say that Alexis Sanchez, Alex-Oxlade Chamberlain and Nacho Monreal are the only players who always give everything even if it doesn’t work out and they show enough desire required to wear the Arsenal badge. Santi Cazorla despite not getting any younger still is the best midfielder on our team and also Danny Welbeck, Lucas Perez and Rob Holding are players I’d like to have in the squad.
All the rest are players with various problems. Either it’s the usual mistakes, or lack of desire, or lack of plain ability or unfulfilled potential, I don’t care. If you don’t put in 100% for the team, you don’t deserve to be here at Arsenal, but neither the board, nor Arsene, nor the players get it.
We are where we are, because acceptance is a disease Arsene crept in to the point that it has become everything. Would David Dien allow this to happen? Would Man Utd keep Wenger if he was that bad there and won nothing for 10 years? What about Barcelona and Madrid?
This is Arsene FC and until it dies and Arsenal and that’s an important 2 letter difference at the end is reborn like a phoenix from the ash, this will be the norm. I reckon it will be another 5 to 10 years. A miracle has to happen for the deluded one to disappear from our lives.
But if you haven’t been disappointed yet, wait not longer than the Man Utd game. People may label me negative, but I am not bound by the Arsene regime and since he is allowed to let this club rot in average mediocracy, I can not care as well. He’s gotta go! Then, then and ONLY THEN, we will start going forward.
