Nothing is good enough says Arsene, but is that so? by Konstantin Mitov
Hello everyone! It’s been an interesting few weeks lately around Arsenal! Not so much regarding the results, but in terms of the consequences those results brought. Arsene is on the ropes! Sadly not from the board, who are the people that will decide his future, but the fans and media do not spare him questions on his future.
Asked about what is success, he said “I’ll leave that up to you”, but once our verdict is failure, he’ll probably say we know nothing. Moving on though he said “nothing is good enough anymore” and I have to say it’s not that nothing is good anymore, it’s just that the usual RO16 exit in the champions league and the constant humiliation against the big sides isn’t very good either.
Those are not things that the board will consider though. They want him to stay, he said he wants to stay. In my mind, there is no question he will sign and be here next season, but the real issue is fans are slowly but steadily turning against Arsene and it might reach a point where nothing will really be good enough, because people have grown tired of Wenger.
And the more significant reason for that is the results have been bad. And they haven’t improved over a long period of time, let’s say 12 years? The same thing over and over again, against the same teams in the same time of the year with the same excuses from Arsene.
A fan at the protests before playing Bayern said he drove 5 hours just to protest and not attend the game! Rumours are fans have gathered money to fly a plane with a banner over the Hawthorns and the spare money will be for more banners that will be given.
If you go to war with the fans you’re unlikely to win, because we’ll be here when the current manager and players are gone. And once you poison the atmosphere it will get to everyone no matter how “mentally strong” we keep hearing we are. Bellerin said after the Bayern game he was hurt that the fans were leaving early.
If he can notice it, be sure, so can the others! And if the players abandon Wenger, he’s finished. That’s why he keeps faith in players who’re not good enough. They trust him and they don’t question him. He’s isolated himself.
Imagine you are sitting in a burning room and you do nothing because you think it’s all good. Eventually you’ll burn up and it’s exactly what’s happening to Arsene. He is suffocating in his own dream world, which is crashing down to reality fast and I think Tony Pulis would love to pile more pressure on Arsene, in fact I don’t think we will win there.
It’s how low our expectations have dropped. I’m not overly confident we can win any competitive game. The heat is on and Wenger can keep pointing fingers at everyone he wants, but truth is he is a big part of the problem, and until he leaves nothing will change!
