We Arsenal fans are quick enough to jump on Arsene Wenger or the Arsenal board and owners, as well as any individual player, when something goes wrong and we think they are to blame or at the very least have some questions to answer, so in all fairness it should work the other way around as well.
It often does, in fact, when it comes to the players, as one decent performance from the likes of Mesut Ozil, Theo Walcott, Aaron Ramsey or Olivier Giroud is enough to get the fans singing their names and giving them instant support even if they have been on a bad run of form.
For some reason the same does not appear to be true for the manager, who is still being criticised despite the per4formance and result against AFC Bournemouth on Saturday being just what was needed and asked for by the fans. The boss got it right with his team selection, most notably the decision to start with Danny Welbeck when a lot of us were crying out for Giroud or Alexis Sanchez to start.
He kept faith with Mustafi, Monreal, Xhaka and Ozil and all of them proved the decision to be a good one. The tactics were right as we did not become reckless at any stage so kept a valuable and confidence building clean sheet while still having more than enough attacking threat top win the game comfortably.
I also think he got it right with the subs, so can we give credit where it is due and throw some props in the direction of the boss, rather than saying it was only Bournemouth?
