Twist it any way you like, but another season proves Arsene is done for. by KM
Hello fellow Gooners. Lately I decided to leave Arsenal aside for a while, because I’d just get angry over the same mistakes we do every time. So much I barely watch the games and I was pretty happy to miss the West Ham one.
I watched the report afterwards and all I can say is that it summed up Arsenals season in a nutshell! In fact it was more or less what years since 2010 have looked like, make that 2006 and it’ll still be valid. We had a 2 goal lead, looked comfortable and then the inevitable slump, the fightback but in the end no glory.
Now I’ve been posting on this site for some time now and I read the comments and I look at all kind of sources to extract the general feeling among Arsenal fans, and there are always people who trust Wenger no matter what. I respect that really, but I feel that he really has let us all down.
Many fans and pundits have questioned Wenger’s tactics and the mentality of the teams he built by himself and although quite a few people slaughter me every time I dare say something about the Boss, truth is with the title gone and another top 4 finish looming we have the right to judge him and Arsene won’t like the judgement.
We badly needed a striker – got Welbeck and Sanchez and it wasn’t enough. We introduced Coquelin as a DM and it wasn’t enough. We bought Petr Cech and it was not enough again. We changed the ever so loyal Pat Rice with Steve Bould but it turns out no matter what changes we made, even signings like Ozil, Sanchez and Cech, we are 13 points off top and it’s not Manchester United or Chelsea or City, it’s Leicester we are chasing.
Look at it whichever way you like and makes you feel best, but the only constant things at Arsenal are the failures, Wenger and the board. There’s been banners and boos crying for Wenger to leave, but truth is the Arsenal fans have been divided in their views and opinions and quite a few fans still feel good with the top 4.
I invite all the people who told me to judge Wenger in May and those who judged him earlier in the season to come to the comment section and explain how they feel now the season is almost over and our position is pretty much certain to be 3rd or 4th.
I think we can all agree that Arsenal FC is run like a business machine making money, not a football club, but if we want to change this, the Arsenal fans need to unite. The home games until the end of the season are a great place to express how we feel about the lack of transfers, immense ticket prices, lost games against terrible opposition and so on.
If we chose not to do it, next season will be just like this one or the previous or the one before that. I feel like if we do not express our frustration with the way the club is ran throughout the games, this topic will never reach the ears of the board, which simply ignores anything the fans have to say about the club.
As another season finishes in a similar fashion so will my post. The facts are after another season of failure we need new people at strong positions off the pitch. At the end of the day, getting a new board full of ambition, means that Wenger wont live through another season of failure as the Arsenal manager.
A different path to go down to starts with a new manager. Until us fans request him though, we’ll be stuck with what we’ve got.
Enjoy the week.
