Arsenal majorly misunderstand the empty seats. by Konstantin Mitov
Hello lovely people! Wenger spoke on his latest press-conference before the West Ham game and as you can imagine, he said a lot of nonsense. There is a major disconnection between the players, board and manager and the fans.
If you see any poll question if people want Wenger or not, 99% percent of the time a majority of votes will be for Wenger to leave, and if you further ask when, then sooner rather than later is preferable. But the manager isn’t too worried.
He said ‘I am responsible for the results and when the results are not as good as everyone wants it, I cannot master that’. Well if you are responsible and you cannot master it, doesn’t that mean you’re not the person for this job? Don’t fool yourselves as logic is hardly applicable when it comes to Arsenal, despite being backed by rock-solid data and terrible results.
Wenger didn’t fail to disrespect the fans again by making this comment on the empty seats ‘it is not a big concern. Our crowd is very solid at the moment’. So solid, you can see the canon on the seats every game, but he continues ‘The renewal numbers for next season are outstanding. We are sold out in every single game so I don’t know what the problem is at the moment’.
It’s the numbers that are important, not the attendance, but I’d be happy if we announced that on the games, not the number of tickets sold. They don’t care what we think as long as we fill their pockets, but with Wenger in charge, next season we might see available season tickets for the first time in decades! If we don’t win the Europa League, next year we won’t have the resources to compete as the other 5 teams of the top 6 will spend to improve, you can be sure of this.
And there’s the small task of playing Atletico Madrid next Thursday and we might get hammered. Teams like Newcastle easily take us down, because we are a bunch of pushovers, incapable of defending, imagine the likes of Griezmann and Costa tormenting Mustafi – probably the worst defender in the league! But does it matter if we get hammered? We were destroyed so many times and for Arsene it was just another day at the office – good or bad it matters little.
Despite all this, I encourage people to fill the Emirates for this one time against the Madrid team, because not winning the Europa Leauge hardly means Wenger will be sacked, even if Atletico thrash us. But if we manage to win it somehow, it will be monumental in our efforts to sign better players and our team badly needs improvement!
We’re the footballing equivalent of North Korea, and our dictator won’t just give up power. This is what happens, when one person has all the power, it’s incredibly difficult to take it off him afterwards. Kroenke isn’t interested in a new manager, it means changing his main accountant and there’s little reason to do so with the numbers we make, especially when we’re about to land a new deal with Adidas or Nike that will make further profit.
Will that money be reinvested in the team? No, don’t kid yourselves. We’ll sell Ramsey and Bellerin to give Kroenke the money he wants and Wenger will be safe and sound next season here too. The empty seats though, will be back next year and in larger numbers. Eventually they will have to understand the real reasons, but it’ll take time. Sadly much longer than necessary.
