The contractual saga regarding Mesut Ozil has received nowhere near as much attention as the situation surrounding Alexis Sanchez and Arsene Wenger. However the German reportedly did something last weekend, that has really ticked the boss off.
The calls for Arsene Wenger to go at the end of this season, has been stronger and louder than usual. This is quite expected, especially when results are not going our ways. However, I don’t think sending Wenger packing alone, will solve our problems, the shareholders need to go as well
To win a Premier League title takes a lot of things to go right for you over the course of a long campaign, and while some of those things like a bit of luck along the way with the rub of the green and the decisions o0f the officials, along with a relatively injury free squad cannot be guaranteed, another thing that Arsenal seem to lack is not down to the whims of fortune, a winning mentality.
Arsenal target Kylina Mbappe has become one of the hottest properties in world football this season and his most recent comments assure me that he will be at the top of the game for years to come.
It appears that Alexis Sanchez is pretty much doing whatever the hell he likes at the moment, as after he insisted on coming out for Arsenal in the second half at West Brom against the wishes od Arsene Wenger and the advice of the Arsenal medical team, he has now taken his injured ankle off around the world to play for Chile in what will be a fiercely contested World Cup qualifier against Argentina.
I am not saying that everything the former England, Blackburn and Celtic striker Chris Sutton is necessarily wrong in everything he has said about the current situation at Arsenal Football Club, but I am saying that his rant about Arsene Wenger reported by The Mirror and the way he runs things is far from being an unbiased viewpoint.
If the reports about Arsenal and Arsene Wenger agreeing a new deal which will see the Frenchman remain in his post as manager for at least one more year, then there is very little that us fans can do about it. If the deal is done then any protests would be unhelpful to the team’s chances of getting anything from this season as well as being pointless.
I can understand the argument that it would be better all round, for the Arsenal fans, players and for whoever might be in line to be our new manager, if the decision about Arsene Wenger staying or not for another season or two was made and announced as soon as possible.
