Arsene ignores the fans again and it’s hilarious! by KM
Hello again! Not a week has passed and Arsene again mugged the fans with some pretty laughable comments. He said: “What I find just boring is always sitting here after 19 years to face [the question] “Do you think you are good enough”.
Now usually you are bored of stuff, you don’t want to do because they don’t really matter. In this case Arsene knows he won’t be sacked, so he’s wondering why is he even being asked.
Going on though…”I am not on Twitter, I don’t invite anybody to go out to dinner and be nice with them. I work and work and work. If it’s not good enough, someone will tell me one day”. Ahahaha I mean I am laughing out loud! Who is that someone? Stan Kroenke? Ivan? The media or the fans?
“I don’t worry about what you [journalists] say about me or what fans say about me”. Straight in your face! The guys doesn’t care at all! Going on he said “I cannot influence the behaviour of the fans. How can I do that? I don’t know.”.
You cannot do it Arsene, really? How about motivating your players to show desire so that we can be happy? Defeats always happen in football, it’s the matter in which we lost the games, lacking all sort of discipline and making childish mistakes again and again that hurts most.
We all know the guy has lost it. He even admits it himself indirectly, because regardless of what he does or does not say, he’ll be there. We know Arsene doesn’t listen, so maybe our attention has to turn to Ivan Gazidis.
He’s probably the youngest member of the board and he needs to address the issue. And it’s bigger than it looks, because we’re not targeting trophies and we’re being priced out. An Arsenal game cost me 93 pounds. Pricing out the younger generation is not the way to go, because when you are at the ground the passion is different.
Back to the problem at hand though, most Wenger polls suggest fans want him gone and I know the mood swings and probably will swing again after beating Hull tonight, but things usually wear off in time. It happens with great managers too.
The cheese at the fridge wears off in time, people sometimes leave work because they wear off at it and football is not that entirely different. 3 to 4 even 5 years is a good span for a manager, but 20? Mourinho is the most recent example.
One of footballs most successful managers in recent times wore off at Chelsea in just 2 and a half seasons. Alan Pardew was offered an eight year contract at Newcastle and left before he was a third of the way there. If there’s no pressure you don’t improve, worst, you become used to it and at best sit in one place!
Wenger gets outsmarted by managers who know they’ll lose most of the games. He has bogey teams that he just cannot beat, his substitution and tactics haven’t changed since 2008 – and still 4th place is his holy grail.
Finally I’ll refer to his ten year claims that this year the side has more mental strength than before! I’ve been hearing it since 2007, when we were questioned if we’d survive without Henry. Despite all this though he says that the fans anger might disrupt the spirit.
It’s not like he’s worked in a war hospital where people died in his hands. Or being a teacher in a poor country, where you get chairs thrown at you and angry parents threaten to beat you to death. He is probably in the top 100 paid employees in the world and has more than enough to retire and feed his grandchildren.
It’s time to move on. This summer either Arsene will enter the last year of his contract, get an extension or he’ll be gone. We should’ve ended it in 2014. It’s highly unlikely that we will ask him to leave, but it’s a step we will have to make soon.
Better late than never.
