When is Enough, Enough? by dboy
We as Arsenal fans are dumb-struck. It didn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out what we needed to win the league when the season kicked off. We were in contention for the league up until December. And as most people predicted, the same old crisis kicked in. We knew that injuries would be an excuse, again, over crowding of fixtures would come, and some players form would drop, as usual, and we needed more adequate players to fill the gaps. Some players are still around that should have been sold and replaced. Players like Sanogo, Arteta, Flamini, Rosicky, to name but a few (cause my list has grown very long since the beginning of the season). Squad rotation is very important when playing so many fixtures. Yet, here we are today, and exactly what was predicted happened. Why? Because we have been seeing this for more than a decade.
Before December there was a lot of talk about winning the league. But many of us were not convinced, judging by the way we played. The Champions league gave a clear indication of how bad we really were. By February we were singing the same old songs of seasons past, while AW remained stubborn and defiant when questioned about his transfer policies and tactics. Playing on the emotions of fans, he continued in his same old ways.
Now fast forward to the end of the season and we find ourselves chasing Leicester and Tottenham. OH HOW THE MIGHTY HAVE FALLEN. To make it worse we are once again trailing the leaders by more than 10 pts (sound familiar ?). Though some deluded people may argue that we still have a game in hand and anything can happen, we know with this team nothing is guaranteed. So once again, in a season that had all the makings for success, our current team proved that they are nothing but average. For that, the manager has to shoulder the blame. He keeps sticking with the same players that have no pride in the jersey they wear. And some fans may point out Man Utd, Man City and Chelsea and say we not too bad. Please allow me? WE ARE ARSENAL and as such, we are in control of our own destiny. What happened to Man City, Man Utd and Chelsea is beyond our control. However, we should have taken advantage.
Arsene Wenger’s failure to plan his season properly year after year has reaped fruit of mediocrity once again. As things stand Leicester is leading the pack with 72 pts on the board, with five games left to play. Arsenal are currently on 59 pts, i.e 13 pts behind. It’s like we going in circles. Enough is Enough!
CAN ANYONE FEEL MY FRUSTRATION ??? HOW LONG WILL THIS CONTINUE ??? DOES ARSENE AND KROENKE REALLY NEED TO BE AROUND FOR ANOTHER SEASON???
Oh! Please can someone introduce my chant at the Emirates?
Lift those banners high!
Chants echo through the sky!
No more bums on these seats!
Till Kroenke and Arsene leaves!
Change! Change! Is what we need
Oh see, how our Gooner hearts do bleed.
Arsenal! Arsenal! We came to see
Instead we leave with hearts full of grief.
For the sake of our beloved Arsenal Please!
