Despite my effort yesterday to try and reduce personal abuse between fellow Arsenal fans, and to highlight that we are all Gooners whether we support Arsene Wenger or not, seemed to promote a little healthy discussion in snatches but also some animosity of course.
I was called an AKB a few times and also told I am not an Arsenal fan, despite being a regular at Highbury from about 45 years ago (long before Wenger arrived) and now spending ten hours a day running an Arsenal website for the last five years! The ‘AKB’s thrown at me seemed to be used as insults by the writers, but I fail to see how supporting our manager (whoever it may be) could be classed as an insult.
Also there were also many cries of simply ‘WENGER OUT!’, despite Arsenal having only played four games so far this season, and only losing one…
Well that is hardly constructive debate, so I will try and escalate it into a healthy discussion. All those that so vehemently want our manager to leave after four games, could you please give me a sensible plan of action as to who will replace him right now if Le Prof was shown the door?
Obviously if you spend all day at your keyboard shouting Anti-Wenger slogans, then you must surely have thought it through and worked out who you would employ in his place, and how this said replacement would improve the team to a higher level than Mr Wenger has managed so far?
I seem to remember early last season going through this same scenario, when we were even further behind the League leaders (in fact relegation was mentioned at one point) but our ‘despicable manager’ turned it around, brought Arsenal all the way back up to Third Place, and helped us to retain the FA Cup before the seasons end. I didn’t hear many calls for his head at that point!
But I digress. I am looking for reasonable discussion on WHO could you employ RIGHT NOW to replace Wenger and how that replacement could improve the team. Please try to be polite and show respect to your fellow Arsenal supporters….
