Are the players deliberately boycotting the manager and the club? by Konstantin Mitov
Alright, the transfer window is done, but the problems at Arsenal are far from over and after enough articles on how Wenger must leave the club, which obviously must happen, what about the players? The people wearing the famous Arsenal shirt and spiting on it?
Right now, I really couldn’t care less if we had sold any of those players. I don’t feel attached to them, because the Arsenal I know and love is long gone. Destroyed by Arsene. Did you read what Petit said? Boy how I miss his attitude. Imagine Petit and Vieira sitting in front of our defense? Would they have sacked our defense like Xhaka and Ramsey did? Xhaka and Ramsey.
I’m laughing with a tear dropping from my eye knowing what we used to have and the joke wearing number 8 in our side. Jamie Carragher (as much as I hate him) was spot on. Cowards, they are all cowards and Ozil’s post on facebook just confirms this even more.
You play on the field! If you want to shut up the critics, how about you do something in a big game for once in your entire career hey? Or else you have to suck it up and deliver the next game, not whine on social media. The Invincibles would have left their hearts on the field, not run towards the showers on their way home the moment the game is over.
The players clearly don’t believe in the manager. Wenger says it’s all good, and Sanchez is 100% committed, but tell me honestly do you believe this? Alexis wanted a City move and he is clearly disappointed he stayed. So what do we do now with him? His team mates don’t like him, he doesn’t wanna be there – so what next?
Arsene has to drop him like Conte dropped Costa. The team must come first. But Wenger doesn’t have the balls to drop him. Arsene picks his squad from a bowl filled with the players names apart from the goalkeeper. He has no clue how to pick his best side, playing left backs as CB, RWB on the left and a striker with almost 40 goals last season on the left wing.
This situation reeks of Mourinho and Chelsea. The players hardly have anything left in the tank for the manager, but he doesn’t understand what’s happening. Arsene thinks it’s just a blip. Can you name the last season, we weren’t trashed away to a big team by at least 3 goals. Thinking of it, it must be before 2010!
If the players wanted to just boycott the manager, I’d be happy, but they are sacking the club too. We’re eating the pain of their miserable performances while they live in their fancy homes, driving their fancy cars with the money we pay to see such garbage. Why didn’t Hazard leave Chelsea, when they finished mid-tabled? He didn’t cry to leave?
Players at Arsenal are princesses! And that’s down to their incredibly poor management. Every way I try to think about what is to blame for this apart from Wenger it just takes a turn to him, because he and poor results are the only constant at this football club. We changed literally everything else – the stadium, the major stakeholder, the squad (numerous times), we added new coaches too. What else is left to change?
Arsene is taking hits left and right – fans, media, former players, even players from inside the club are at a point where they just ignore him. Wenger is taking too many hits, but he is living in the Kroenke bunker, which shields him from harm and the players are the only people who are close to entering some part of it.
For me, the players need to take an open plea to the board and the owner that they want the manager gone. If they don’t do it and the fans don’t help by protesting, things will get only worse for everyone. If we beat Bournemouth, apart from the 3 points, it’ll be a disaster for the club sadly, because it will be enough for people to jump back on the Wenger ship.
I’ve seen it too many times before. People come destroying me for saying the manager should go after we win a game, or if I try to point out a mistake we make. One win and Arsene will say “You see, it was all just a blip”. We’ll paper over the cracks. We have to prepare for several difficult years for a few reasons.
One is we won’t get rid of Arsene anytime soon. It will take immense determination and consistency to take him down and he won’t get out without a fight. Even if we get relegated, Wenger wouldn’t accept it’s his fault so I do hope the players get together and try to force him out as bad as it may sound it’s for the greater good of the club.
And even if they don’t want to, their sorry excuse of a performance on the pitch will help. After Bournemouth, it’s Chelsea away. If you sway your way to Wenger after a potential win against the south coast team, it will take just a week for a sharp reminder where we stand. Because with all their problems, and Chelsea do have some right now, despite being champions, they’d crush us on their ground like every time they do it.
Things at Arsenal haven’t been that bad for a very long time. If we don’t march against Wenger, it will only get worse, but in order to get better, we must apparently reach the very bottom and with Arsene there’s always a way down, but know this! Once the players abandon you, you are finished as a manager. Even if you are the leech called Arsene Wenger.
