The summer can’t come soon enough for everybody around Arsenal by Konstantin Mitov
Let’s face it people, the top 4 is gone. It’s dead, just like Arsene. We need a break, but the summer will be much worse. Alexis will play for Chelsea next season. When it happens, don’t thank me for preparing you for this. If they come with 30+ million, Arsene would sell, because money is the only reason he is here.
I miss David Dein so much. I miss the winning mentality at my football club. Do you know why big clubs have a lot of fans? People like winning. We’re now a resemblance of everything I hate. Losing, giving up, negativity, fighting among the fans. A top club’s fans would never allow for this to happen.
Iniesta once said in an interview after talking with Mata at Spain’s international squad, that if Barcelona finished 7th, fans would want to kill the players in their cars. Nobody there would allow for such meltdown to happen. But this happens because of the lack of forward thinking for 10 years.
When Dein left, we let Arsene take control of everything. He does the coaching, the transfers, the wage negotiations, everything. And now we’re finally paying the price. So many years we scrapped our way to the top 4, but now it’s all coming down. It’s time people get their heads out of the sand and look at the reality. It’s not the money.
We played better with Song, Denilson and Bendtner in our squad. We have 3 world cup winners in the side. One of the all time great goalkeepers of the Premier league, two players who finished second with France at the World cup. We have a squad full of internationals who make schoolboy errors against bad teams.
Who’s fault is it, if it’s not the manager’s? There are still people who find excuses somewhere else. The only thing that hasn’t changed is him. You know who. The guy who doesn’t move his ass off the bench during the game. His mentality has moved onto the fans and the players.
Look at Theo when he scored. Yay, I scored… It was like ‘oh cool we scored, so what’? The defending was shocking from both teams and City were there for the taking, but why would Ozil risk going in for a 50/50 challenge? Nobody with real quality and ambition would come here next season if Wenger stays.
We have a top stadium, a fair amount of fans worldwide and we have money. We have lots of money. Don’t blame Kroenke on this one. Wenger spent 90 million this summer and they didn’t come from the 100 million he made in the past 10 years. Arsene spent 200+ million since Ozil came and look at what he’s done.
He’s brought us backwards. What’s the point of commenting on the situations from the game, when it’s plain obvious players are not playing for him. Some are just waiting for the season to end so they can get out of here. Almost 10 players have their contracts up next season. How is this allowed to happen?
The Ox, Ozil, Sanchez, Wilshere and Ramsey to name a few. How do we replace those people? We should be building on them. You see, Arsene even got his squad selection right in the past few games and his subs too and it still doesn’t work. There’s always something missing and it’s the manager. Get in somebody new. Whoever it is, I don’t care.
Even if we change all of the coaches, we’d bring in more yes men. Bould replaced Rice as the yes man and changing Steve with another one is just replacing names. Put in somebody new. Let him build his own coaching staff. Change something, anything. A new manager will clear out some of the negativity.
You see Chelsea players forced out managers, even Mourinho. And they’re likely to win the title again. I hope our players would go to the board and say it’s us or him. You can’t replace all the employees at a company because there’s one person who’s impossible to deal with.
We’re likely to miss Europe completely and the rebuilding task will be bigger than Arsene can handle. The love of the fans is gone for him. 80% voted out in the Supporters Trust poll. Even here at JustArsenal, the percentages were similar. Outside of the games, people sing we want Wenger out and that’s for a while now. Protests before every game.
The board are cowards hiding behind Arsene who’s ignoring all the negativity in his deluded manner, but don’t blame the players. If you are a player and you publicly say something about the manager, that’s it. He will ruin you. You’ll never play again – and when you are at Arsenal, the dictator will outcast you in a second.
Alexis tried to open his mouth and Theo let slip that there was a bust up and what happened? Alexis no longer cares. He’s off already. If the board don’t come out with a strong decision to get rid of him, that’s it for me really.
I’m sitting there, seeing the players come out and they look soulless. But still I wanna get excited, but the moment I see him come on the bench, it’s like I’m knocked out. I become numb and cold and I just know how we will play and what will happen.
Finishing outside of Europe is not good for us. We will not spend 200 million, and a lot more on wages, to revive ourselves. This was all so avoidable. If Arsene stays, prepare for at least 2 more years of the same grim atmosphere. If you don’t raise your voice now, prepare to remain silent and watch on as we fade into what Liverpool were for quite a few years.
Change has to come from us, because if you wait for the board to make it, it will be more of the same.
