There is a huge amount of anger, despair and frustration flowing through the global ranks of Arsenal fans today. Yet another almost identical turnaround in Swansea, right after the players should have learned that very lesson against Anderlecht in the Champions League, has left us bereft of hope and wondering what has happened.
And as much as you might think that Arsene Wenger is breezing along happily and serving up platitudes while having no fear that his failures will result in the sack, think again. Because the Frenchman, according to his own words, is ready to end it all and commit suicide!!!!!
Well, that is what he said he would do, as reported by The Mirror last week, if he was to accept that the Gunners had no chance of winning the Premier League title this early in the season. And this was while Arsenal were nine points behind Chelsea and showing all sorts of problems.
Wenger said, ““If I say to you: ‘No, the objective is not to win the title’, then I have to commit suicide when I go out from here.
“The objective now realistically is for us to get back in a position where we have a chance to win the title.”
Whether it is the extra three points gap to the league leaders that Arsenal now have, or the manner of our capitulation in a rain sodden Swansea, I am not sure, but after yesterday’s defeat the Arsenal boss pretty much admitted that Chelsea are going to lift the EPL trophy in May, as reported by ESPN.
The Arsenal boss said, “Look at the season and Chelsea are on course for 105 points. Look at the number of points they have today and if they keep that up nobody will touch them, that’s for sure.
“It doesn’t look like anybody is capable of challenging them at the moment. There’s no obvious reason but they have had a good start and as long as you don’t lose you don’t question yourself. Maybe a little bit more extra spirit in the team helps them when it gets tight.”
So I wonder which method Wenger will choose; head in the oven, pills or maybe from his time in Japan it will be the honourable Hara-kiri….
