Arsenal fans need to get behind the team and the manager by Sam P.
Some Arsenal fans have not been happy with the club for keeping Arsene Wenger as our manager for some time now and even though the pressure may have been taken off the Frenchman by the team ending the long trophy drought and then backing it up with back to back FA cup wins at Wembley, the failure so far this season to take advantage of the struggles of the Premier League big boys has brought it all back with a bang.
I get that and I am pretty sure that the boss, the board and the players get it too. I am even feeling a lot closer to wanting a change at the top myself, even if I do have big worries about Arsenal doing a Man United when we replace such a long serving manager.
But I also think that now is the time for everyone at Arsenal to pull together, while there is still a chance of making something from the season. And I do see a place in the Champions League next year as a goal and something that should not be taken for granted. You can bet that Louis van Gaal is desperate to get into the top four and thatWest Ham would be over the moon if they can make it.
So the Gunners have to keep focus and keep fighting, especially while there is the outside chance of winning the title. The moaning and protesting of fans is only going to hurt our chances of success on the pitch as it does get noticed by the players and we know that any extra pressure on them and Wenger does not help them to perform.
When the dust has settled and we are definitely out of the title race and/or have guaranteed a top four spot, then you can bring your banners and complain as much as you want. For now can we all just get behind the boss and the players?
