Wenger is not to blame for Arsenal loss by Sam P
I am not surprised by the anger and frustration that has poured out of a lot of Arsenal fans since the 2-0 defeat away to Southampton yesterday. Not surprised at all, but still a bit miffed to be honest. Wenger out and all the usual rubbish was always going to be trotted out by the Arsenal fans who cannot wait for a stick to beat our manager with.
I would just like to see how some of the same moaners and critics managed to keep a club in the top four of the toughest and most competitive football league in the world, firstly with less money to spend than most mid-table clubs have had and then with almost a whole first team of players unavailable due to a crippling an mysterious run of injury problems.
But I know that a lot of you will not even let Wenger have that as an excuse and will even blame him for players getting injured. It was not Wenger whose tackle damaged Wilshere’s ankle by the way, or broke Giroud’s tibia, Debuchy’s ankle, Ozil’s knee and many more. Is it raining where you are? Blame Wenger!
So we lost Flamini before the game yesterday, leaving Le Prof with no regular central midfielders. And it was our third tough game in SIX days. Are you really surprised that Arsenal struggled against one of the strongest sides in the division, especially on their own turf?
Forget all that ay? Let’s just rant at Wenger and show him no respect and while we are at it let’s ignore the fact that we won the FA cup last season and are in the knockout stages of the Champions League yet again, something that most clubs cannot manage with no injury problems and lots of money to spend.
Give yourself a round of applause Wenger haters! And happy new year. Just remember not to celebrate if we win the next game or do anything good, okay? With friends like you, who needs enemies? SMFH
