It seems to me that Arsenal Football Club and the fans find themselves in this situation at least once a season, with Gooners everywhere fuming and calling for the head of Arsene Wenger. Last season it reached it’s peak when the January transfer window closed and the manager had covered for the injuries to Ramsey and Walcott and our lack of striking options by doing a loan deal for the injured and aging Kim Kallstrom.
And now after the Gunners gave away two winning positions against two eminently beatable clubs one after the other, the fans, or at least a good portion of us, want a new manager to take the reins and steer Arsenal back to glory. And although Wenger does baffle and frustrate me at times, I cannot help but look at what happened to Man United when Ferguson left. And then you have a lot of clubs like Spurs and Chelsea that have changed managers more often than their socks and struggled.
And we could also look at what happened at Newcastle United at the start of this season with Alan Pardew. The Magpies, like us, were crippled by injuries and could not buy a win. The fans were demanding Pardew out, were protesting at every game and even had some `Pardew Out` leaflets printed and distributed. But the owner stuck by the second longest serving Premier League boss and look what happened.
After five wins in a row, including Liverpool and the spuds, Newcastle have shot up the table and are now just a point behind Arsenal. They also knocked Man City out of the League cup and suddenly Pardew can do no wrong.
Do you really think that Arsenal will continue to toil as we have been? Do you really doubt that we can put a similar and better set of results together? And I think that nobody will be able to do that better this season than Wenger, as he knows the club and the players inside out.
What I will say, though, is that I think we should be looking at somebody like Klopp or Simeone to take over at the end of the season, because the same thing happens every year and we are not getting any better. What do you think Gooners?
