First of all I have a few words to say in support of the Arsenal manager. Having calmed down after being subjected to that ridiculous and frustrating Champions League defeat by Olympiacos, I can see things in a clearer way. And it is true that there is no way Arsene Wenger could have expected his team to perform so badly even with a few changes. He was also right to say that Cech has made a costly error already this season and Ospina has been reliable since joining the club.
That decision was still wrong though and it has put huge pressure back on the bosses shoulders and therefore on to the players. If Wenger had gone with Cech as every man and his dog feels he should have, we would not be questioning the boss so much now.
Even if Cech had made a mistake and cost us the game, Wenger would not have been questioned about his selection. The problem for Wenger now is that the Arsenal fans have suffered a steady stream of disappointments like this and so it does not take much to send us over the edge.
This increasing anger at the man in charge cannot be good for anyone or the club in general and another domestic cup is not going to be enough to calm us down this season. By not signing anyone but Cech and then not picking him in a must win game has put Wenger in a tight spot. And for me, the only way out is for him to lead Arsenal to the EPL title. Do you agree?
