If the reports about Arsenal and Arsene Wenger agreeing a new deal which will see the Frenchman remain in his post as manager for at least one more year, then there is very little that us fans can do about it. If the deal is done then any protests would be unhelpful to the team’s chances of getting anything from this season as well as being pointless.
But if the Prof is to give the Premier League title another crack we can only hope that next season pans out differently to this one and the preceeding ones which have all taken on a similar aspect of the team doing well and raising our hopes that it could be our year but ultimately flattering to deceive and ending up a long way behind the eventual champions, while heading out of the Champions League at the same stage each year.
So if the manager is not going to change, something else has to, and if this latest season of extreme disappointment and record breaking defeats does not convince Wenger and the Arsenal board that the current system is not working then nothing will.
In a way I think that failure to win the FA cup or finish in the top four might help, because it should shake the Frenchman and the club out of their lethargy. We need to see the boss becoming less stubborn and more flexible with his tactics, training methods and the way he deals with the players and we need to see much more aggression and intent in the transfer market.
Will this latest season of pain and protest finally shake the Gunners up and get us firing again next year?
