I am not quite as angry with Arsene Wenger as many Arsenal fans appear to be, with the number joining the ranks of the AOBs seemingly growing on a game by game basis. I can at least sympathise with the problems that the Frenchman has had to face this season, from the bad luck of our awful injury situation to some dodgy referee decisions and the inexplicable loss of form from players like Giroud and Walcott.
However, I certainly expected more from Arsenal this year and even though this season has been one of the strangest that I can remember, and we probably won’t see the same from Leicester and hopefully Tottenham next year, there is a strong possibility that this season could actually be the worst for the Gunners in a decade in terms of numbers.
Every season is different of course, but the lowest points total Arsenal have managed over the last 10 years is 68, which we got in 2007 and 2011, while the boss still had financial constraints from the new stadium. Arsenal are currently on 64 points and the way we are playing, how likely is it that we will get more than four points from the final three games against Norwich, Man City and Aston Villa? How bad would it be if this season saw the lowest points total from us in a decade?
Even if the Gunners amaze us all by actually winning the final three games, we will have fewer points than in the previous two campaigns and exactly the same as three years ago. Is this the most damning proof that Arsenal are going backwards under the Frenchman and proof that we really do need a change?
