Arsene Wenger reiterated his stance today that he will be staying on as manager beyond the summer, so it is time the fans stopped with the anger and supported the club.
The French boss has been urged by a number of fans to quit the club, having gone for 12 years with winning the PL title, but Wenger is going nowhere.
The supporters in the stadium have made the atmosphere at matches versatile, as the frustration grows with the club’s lack of progression, but it is the team’s players who are affected the most.
Last season, we won 12 of our 19 matches at home, but we have only won nine of the 16 so far in our current term. The most supported teams are said to be advantaged by the so-called ‘Twelth Man’ during home matches, and this season the support has lacked considerably.
Many fans are adamant that the only way that we can return to the heights of winning the league are if the manager leaves, or if both Stan Kroenke and Wenger leave, but what if it is the players who simply need more support?
It is not OK to simply be supportive in good times, but it is hugely necessary to help the team get through a slump or a bad time, and you can’t expect another invincible year with the strength of England’s top division currently.
We need to face the facts, we are there or thereabouts every season, and are always in the top-four come the end of the season, so why shouldn’t we try and push our team on to get the best out of every season?
I have seen on social media that some fans are staging a walk-out tomorrow, while I have also seen the report that says that tickets are not being sold for tomorrow’s game against WBA, which highlights the distinct lack of support our club is getting during a tough time, and at a time when we need it!
If we do not win on Thursday, our grip on the Champions League places WILL be in doubt…
Do you even care if we win this week???
