Wenger has to go, this is just unacceptable! by KM
What happened to Arsenal yesterday is just ridiculous. Will the manager come out and take the blame? No of course not! Will he be sacked? No of course not. Will he learn his lesson? No of course not!
We played what was our “best available squad” and we threw away a 3 goal lead, to an offside goal, a silly penalty and a headed goal. Have you seen a statistics of the headed goals we’ve conceded?
Let’s count them. Crystal Palace on the first day of the EPL, Ulloa from Leicester, Hull City’s second goal, Demichelis in the City game. I’m sure I could be missing something but bar the Palace goal the other 3 have cost us 6 points, which would put us second, just 3 behind Chelsea.
Now let’s count the times players have gone past the Arsenal defense like they are Messi. The Hull City equalizer comes to mind, Mkhitaryan from a Dortmund side suffering 5 straight defeats in the Bundesliga, Eden Hazard going past 5 Arsenal players and earning a penalty for Chelsea and again I am probably missing a lot of other situations which were not that obvious.
Another classical mistake marked Arsenal is having too many players forward and getting hit on the counter. Sergio Aguero’s goal coming from nowhere comes to mind, Chadli’s goal for Spurs, again totally preventable and Everton’s off side goal.
This is just from this season, not taking into account the way Chelsea and Liverpool exposed us on the counter last season. Where are the lessons learned Arsene? Why don’t we hire someone to teach this group of players the importance of the clean sheet?
Clearly Southampton have an idea how to do it? Why don’t we hire Tony Pulis or someone from his staff to make our defense a bit tighter at the back. We’ve beaten the 3 clubs sitting above the relegation zone and the bottom club in the league from 10 games. Either way that’s not good enough.
I demand that someone takes responsibility and some sort of punishment for these results, and that some action is taken immediately and some reinforcements come in January. Why cant we buy a DM? Arteta and Flamini will not be starters in a mid-table team in the PL, why are they starting for Arsenal?
We could buy Mohamed Diame for peanuts. Morgan Schneiderlin from Southampton would do a good job. We didn’t want to pay 20 millions for Cabaye, when we have a bunch of midfield players unaware of what’s going on in the game. We can buy Clyne or Reid to boost our defense. We have one of the worst back fours in the league.
And last but not least, the keeper. When will we buy a good keeper? We’ve thrown away season after season after season because we just don’t want to buy a good Keeper. Well it’s not just the keeper, now we need a CB, a RB, another CB and a DM, especially a DM.
One thing is for certain, we are heading into a Swansea away game with low confidence after the easiest run of games we could possibly have had. And instead of being safe and sound into the CL play offs we’ll have a tired first team and huge troubles. This is not the first time we throw away a 3 goal lead, remember we’ve also thrown away 4 goal leads! I simply cannot accept this any more, can you?
