Are you Arsenal fans out there as sick as I am of hearing from our under performing players after a terrible performance and result? It is always the same old thing about wanting to put it right, owing the fans a response and talk about them sharing our pain, but I just do not buy it.
As reported by Metro, the German international star Mesut Ozil went on social media after the pasting by Liverpool at Anfield in which he played like a man who could not give a monkeys if the Gunners won or lost, to suggest that he was trul;y sorry for the way the game went and that he and his club colleagues would do what ever they could to help Arsenal bounce back after the international break.
Ozil wrote, “Blame us, shout at us, criticize us, but I’m also very disappointed about today’s game ?. We wanted to achieve a positive result before the international break but we were simply not good enough during the 90 minutes and Liverpool deserved the win without a doubt. Usually I’m too angry to post on social media after such frustrating days like today, but I don’t want to let this match go uncommented before traveling to the DFB Team. Nevertheless… Gunners, I’m sorry – especially for the fans who travelled all the way up to Liverpool to see us fighting. But we will try everything to improve in the next game and bounce back from the disappointment we are all feeling at the moment.”
That is easy to say but not so easy to do and that is the problem, because when these things keep happening, as they do every year with Arsenal, you cannot ignore the fact that there is an underlying and recurring problems, so apologising after the fact as Ramsey did on the Arsenal website, only make the fans angrier.
The Welshman said, “We’re very disappointed with the way we performed but we have to accept it. We’re sorry to the fans that came up – it’s not good enough and we have to do something about it.
“We’re going to have to change something if we’re to compete this year. That wasn’t good enough. Liverpool showed what it’s going to have to take to compete for the Premier League and we’re going to have to do something about it if we’re going to do that.
“Most of the squad go away now, so when we get back we’ll have to review that and hopefully we can move on and sort it out.”
Here is some advice mate, don’t say sorry, just make sure you have nothing to say sorry for by putting in the effort in the first place.
