As the general election approaches the British public are sat firmly between a rock and a hard place…they know the Conservatives have absolutely no regard for the wellbeing of the majority of British citizens and yet the Labour party have an inability to offer a realistic alternative which mirrors the situation Arsenal fans find them selves in.
Wenger and the board are the Tories. They have no regard for the fans and their sole purpose is to ensure they maintain the status they have enjoyed for a couple of decades. They are completely unchallenged.
We, the fans, are the Labour party. We have absolute no chance of affecting change. We are meek, mild and subservient. As a consequence, just like the general election in the summer, the Tories will maintain power for another 4 years and Arsenal Wenger and the board will be there on the first game of next season.
No world class players will be bought and we’ll be fed the same old lines…”we are only interested in buying quality” or “Arsène popped around Mbappe’s house but he wasn’t in..”
We have two enormous hurdles now that will hinder our clubs summer business
1. We won’t be in the UCL so top players will be put off joining.
2. We are a sinking ship and no agent would allow their players to join footballs equivalent of the titanic.
United have infinitely more spending power than us yet still struggle to persuade top players to join them given they have no UCL. What realistic chance do we have to succeed where they are currently failing?
I dont understand how Spurs have built a team that have realistically challenged for the Premier League two seasons in a row and yet pay much smaller wages. We know Pochettino is a great manager but it’s not just him. Spurs are superior to us all over the pitch which it pains me to say. Our style and approach has lost the swagger it once had. We look more like England these days. What has caused so many attacking prospects at Arsenal to play in such a negative fashion? People like Jack… why is he not now up there with Dele Ali?
What I predict will happen is that, having missed out on UCL for 2017/18, we may qualify for the following seasons competition and the Board will suggest the team has improved.
I think many fans have tried to make their feelings known in whatever way they could but the simple truth is the board and Wenger do whatever they want…..because they can. The resistance the fans put up is about as effective as Labours challenge to the Conservatives…insignificant.
