This could still be our best season in years!…If Arsene leaves… by KM
Hello you rich Arsenal fans that will pay the money for this article right here! Well you know what, like the Arsenal board who were so generous in not increasing ticket prices for season holders, I’ll sneak you this one for free alright? I mean I’ll delay my new flat building by doing so, but it’s ok.
So Arsene doesn’t think we should’ve lost that Watford game. I feel like the best team won. The one with a game plan to counter the strengths of the other. The team which improved their second half performance. Ighalo and Deeny didn’t put two good passes between them in the first half, but in the second they did and Ighalo scored, but Deeny assisted twice.
Arsene doesn’t know why we lose and it’s exactly the problem. We are predictable, we always play 4-5-1, the line up is pretty predictable too, and we repeat the same mistakes over and over again. We played exactly like we did against United, Swansea, Chelsea, Stoke even Hull.
And I’m bored, just like Arsene. Bored of the excuses, the inability to score, the lack of desire and fire in the hearts of the players, the same tactics, the same players that are not good enough. The lack of transfer activities, the lack of leaders, the lack of care from anybody about the league position we take or the lack of interest in fans opinions.
The continuous bad results are starting to pile misery on Arsene and it has resulted in boos, banners, polls opting for his head, disruption among the fans, empty seats, fans leaving 10 minutes before the games are over and so on.
Honestly, whatever the method is, it doesn’t matter as long as the message is sent out. The media are speaking of whether or not the time has come to part ways with Wenger, the bookies drop the coefficients for a new manager. And where there is smoke, there is fire.
We missed on Pep, Klopp and Ancelotti, but options are available. Looking at how Klopp is shaping up at Liverpool I’m really sad we missed on him. Next season they’ll be a serious threat! So what’s left out there.
Manuel Pellegrini – I don’t think he’ll be a major improvement, but still he has won the title.
Brendan Rodgers – he almost got an average Liverpool squad the title, but fell apart. But some of the transfers were forced on him, so I think the blame has to be shared.
Diego Simeone – An unbelievable manager. A motivator, a hard working man that lifted Atletico to the levels of Barcelona and Real Madrid. This alone is a sensation. He won the title at the Nou Camp, was seconds away from lifting the Champions league and is just the type of character Arsenal has been missing for a while. Atletico will hardly let him leave though, otherwise missing on him would be a criminal offence.
Jose Mourinho – make no mistake, this is still one of the worlds best managers and given the opportunity to win Arsenal the title and mock Arsene even more, he’ll take it at the right price. A scandalous figure, who’s methods of winning are every sort of bad you can imagine, he’s still somebody that would take us to a new level and I would get him right away if Simeone isn’t available.
Frank De Boer – another name lurking around, doing miracles at Ajax, De Boer is an interesting young coach, but is he the man to lead us forward? I’d take him over Wenger as this goes for all the managers on this list though.
Ronald Koeman – the man is doing an incredible job at Southampton. They got sold out, they were favourites to go down, instead they finished in the top 8 and despite their defenders being picked out – Lovren, Clyne, Alderweireld, they still have a formidable defence. He’s the best realistic shot of the lot I see.
The names of Steve Bould and Thierry Henry also sniff around but look at Gary Neville at Valencia. As romantic as an old player full of trophies sounds, as a manager it is an entirely different story. The matter of fact is, options are there.
If we change Wenger we might go into a bad spell just like Man United. I am well aware of that, but there’s nothing to be afraid of. It’ll be just the price we are paying for having one man become the entire team. If we plan smart though, this can be avoided.
The inevitable CL exit and a potential hammering from Barca could be a good thing. The noises Wenger is ignoring are getting attention slowly but surely at the end they will result in a change. Aaron Ramsey went to Wenger’s defence saying he is shocked people want him sacked, but of course he’d say that.
If a good manager comes in, would he put up with the likes of Giroud, Walcott and Ramsey who are not good enough? Some players hit the gold mine at Arsenal just like Wenger, and sit on enormous salaries that don’t match their talent and if he goes, they’ll be doomed too.
Wenger is in a fight for the top 4, not the league. What’s saving him is the fact that Man United, Chelsea and Liverpool are so bad. And I’m not saying this to be negative. I just got over the fact we’ll not win it, because history, the stats, the way we play and practically everything suggests that.
It’s the biggest summer of a decade. With nothing to hide behind the marching orders could be coming and it’ll be the biggest win of the season we can realistically achieve.
