The final nail in Wengers coffin lies just around the corner by Konstantin Mitov
The Europa League. Wengers saving grace! He always had one, whether it was the top 4 or the FA cup, he always managed to paper enough cracks to get a new deal, but now reality has finally caught up and we’re heading for a 5th straight defeat against Milan.
And while Wenger was speaking of turning things around, Josh Kroenke spoke about “victory through harmony” and “honest and open dialogue about reality”. It sounds like the end to me. Everything points at Wenger and the reason he won’t turn things around this time is quite simple. He doesn’t realise what the problem is, because the problem is he himself.
Ex players slate him, pundits slate him, the fans want him gone sooner rather than late and the players have given up on him for an entire calendar year and days counting. He’s been given two of the most prolific strikers in Europe and we’re struggling. He made our best player want to leave, by shunting him out the squad. His record against the top 6 speaks for itself and to be honest after 8 defeats in 2018 excuses have long dried up.
It’s a sad ending, but the saddest part is we’ll not sack him. Those talks of “honest/mature conversations” or whatever you wanna call it, suggest to me that people are afraid to sack Arsene, although they know it’s the right thing. We’ll let this season go to hell, because Wenger truly is everything here.
How do you think we’ll do at Milan? I think a 2:1 defeat would be a miracle! Honestly as much as I want to win this competition, I can’t stand more Wenger. It’s killing me, the lack of desire on the pitch. The empty stadium and the way our bench looks having zero ideas how to influence the game, while other top club managers are always on the touchline trying to improve.
I believe Milan will make easy work of us and then Arsene will say it’s a blip of bad form like it’s every other day. Over 10 years of pain are enough and I just want him sacked. He no longer deserves a good sending off. I’m prepared to suck the punch we’ll get tomorrow and that most likely will force people to take some action. It’s just sad that we’re throwing the Europa League away just because we don’t have the balls to do the right thing, but hey, as long as he’s gone next season, I’ll take it.
