Arsene disrespected the Arsenal fans again by not walking around the pitch and then blamed us for his failure. by Konstantin Mitov
Okay, so before Arsenal announce Wenger’s new contract and I stop bothering with this, because failure is not my thing, I would like to address a fundamental problem in the situation we are in and this is the fact that the manager and the board have shown the fans one giant middle finger.
And that was solidified by the fact that Arsene refused to go around and greet the fans. Ask yourselves why? Why didn’t he take it on the chin? He ignores everything, he doesn’t care if we like him or not, all he craves is power and if you haven’t realized it yet, than I don’t think any more evidence will convince you, because we’ve become a symbol for failure.
I’d like to address the people who abuse me at the comments, because unlike Arsene I like to hear what people say and improve the content I am giving them by asking you to explain why you believe he should stay and give counter-arguments to what you don’t like about me, because abusing something is weak. It means you are Arsene and you don’t have any more arguments in your favour, so abuse is the only thing left.
And the way Arsene blamed us and the hostile environment is so pathetic. I had to go to a office full of Man Utd fans, after we lost 8-2 there. This year I had to greet some Bayern fans who greeted me high five, TWICE! I had to endure songs about losing 6-0 at Chelsea and I lived somehow with it. I never received any money, a card, nothing from this club, but I did give it 15 years of pure support every weekend.
I accepted all sorts of banter about our gigantic failures, the top 4 trophy and so on and so on and I tried to find the positives and stick by the club, but I cannot just ignore the elephant in the room and pretend everything is ok. For 5 years I’ve been crying to get rid of Arsene. I blamed Fabregas and Van Persie for leaving but now I see they were right. It hurts, but it was the better choice for them and it proves with the titles they won.
And you can add that to the list of disappointments seeing my favorite players leaving year by year, but this time I can’t take it. I cant see Sanchez go to Chelsea, which could realistically happen. And the icing of the cake is the person responsible for this mess, coming out to say it’s our fault for the failed season. Did we drop Sanchez against Liverpool? Had we not lost that game, we’d be 4th now.
After the loss in the first game of the season, Wenger said we started the season unprepared. Why? Did I do the coaching or the transfers? Why didn’t we have 2 proper center backs for that game? Why did we let the lead slip away? Why do we stick with players who obviously are not good enough for this club? I buy the kit, I watch the games, what more is wanted from me? I support the team, but support needs to be both ways. The club needs to show, it cares for it’s fans, but it only cares as far as taking our money.
Arsene quite a few time said “I built this club”. Yep I agree 1886, probably you traveled back in time to establish it and afterwards you build the Emirates brick by brick, but worse quite a big amount of people agree with this and think it’s the truth. If you think I am the problem for this, then worry not, it’s highly probable that next season I will stop writing, because giving Arsene another season is the ultimate abuse in the face of an Arsenal fan.
Finally though, we have to mention the board who could’ve prevented this mess by forcing Arsene to make a move or leave. If they wanted him so badly, they could’ve said ‘you have 2 weeks to sign or the contract goes elsewhere.’ How can we leave our future to be decided in June? If you are an Arsenal player how can you be happy, when you got no idea who will be the manager, which players will be staying and so on?
This happened many years in a row and people always closed their eyes, because we got 4th. We have no ambition to move past 4th and we deserve to miss the Champions league, because to go there you need ambition. Words like that and “change” have been banned from our dictionary. The ultimately worst thing about the whole situation is the fact that Kroenke won’t sell to Usmanov, and my god if Usmanov comes, we’ll return to the glory days.
Arsene will be forced to win or leave and leave it will be, because Arsenal have spent more than Chelsea in recent years, yet I see 2 titles for them and the Europa league for us. My plea to you is to look at the real problem and address it if you are willing to keep fighting this fight, because otherwise we will be the new Liverpool.
The FA cup final is a time for a clear message that Wenger and Kroenke have to leave and this has to be the message each day from now until the day one of them is actually gone. Only then, will any sort of progress be seen.
