Instead of learning by example, Arsenal will have to do it the hard way, again. by Konstantin Mitov
Hello everyone. After another Champions league night, you could see yet again how far off Europe’s best we are. Max Allegri produced a masterclass against Barcelona hammering them 3:0. Juventus might not have MSN up front, but they looked so determined, so tactically aware, so prepared to pounce on mistakes. Incredible.
When was the last time Arsene produced such a tactical masterclass? Try and remember that day. Elsewhere, Jardim took a victory at a suffering Dortmund team following an incredible stupidity from UEFA to play their game at an early kick off. Even Leicester with Shakespeare were only undone, because the ref put on the glasses that moved the penalty area by nearly a yard to award Atletico a penalty!
You also have to see that Bayern didn’t lose 5-1 after going down to 10 men. They lost 2:1 and true, Neuer made some miraculous saves, or it could’ve been worse, but despite the loss, 2:1 is still somehow possible to overturn. And we’re considering Wenger’s new contract. I am amazed, truly am. No other team would tolerate this in the entire world!
What’s worse is that reports suggest Arsene will be given the task of rebuilding the club. The man who destroyed it, is now going to rebuild it? It’s amazing how counter-intuitive is every action we here at Arsenal make. But next season will be even worse if he doesn’t leave. You cannot get rid of the entire squad, there would still be players who’d not wanna play for him and every bad result and genuine mistake Arsene makes will follow with a huge backlash from fans.
The new contract will be announced in the summer once all the negativity settles, but until then, keep voicing your opinion. It matters. We shouldn’t give up even when he stays, because things have gone too far. We need capable people to take us forward. Sometimes to start going up, you need to hit rock bottom first.
We’ll hit rock bottom next season with his extension when key players leave and no adequate replacements come in. Then every slightly wrong move would follow with a revolt. Then Arsene will see the respect, like he is showing us right now. Sadly, this is another lesson we need to learn the hard way.
