Short term sightseeing at Arsenal result in defeats like yesterdays. by Konstantin Mitov
In a usual fashion like the diabolical result I’ll also skip the review of the game as I usually do of late, because I stick to my words that with Arsene this is what it is gonna look like from now on.
Things cannot miraculously change when the source of the problem cannot be removed. I also said that West Ham are terrible and we shouldn’t look too much into that result. I got slated off, because I believe that in order to succeed we need a long term plan.
We don’t know the future of a lot of players, neither the one of the manager. All we know is the top 4 won’t decide his future, but truthfully, we deserve to miss it. It has become a symbol of staleness and although I don’t like missing it, it should be a wake up call.
People label me negative for not getting overexcited for West Ham, but neither am I too surprised now. This has happened before, season after season, but 4th always kinda papered over the cracks and we never truly addressed the fact how far behind we’ve fallen in terms of training, tactics, scouting, wage negotiations and so on.
I read an article stating that Gazidis is trying to push for a director of football and Arsene is rebelling against change. Frankly, what’s really going on is something only Arsene knows, but it’s funny to believe he can reinvent himself when he spent nearly 100 million and he’s going backwards.
It is not only about money, it’s about Power too, all of it. Wenger has it, and I really believe Ivan is kinda frozen out like Usmanov, who also came out in support of the manager, but this summer will be one of change for sure, not the right one I fear though.
Anyway, what next? The season is done for us. FA cup or not, missing the top 4 is a disaster for us. It means we’re going to be like Liverpool of a few years back. Do we have any sort of a plan? What will happen to ticket prices? What kind of players will we sign?
How do we replace Alexis and Ozil? I just want the season to end. Then it will only get worse if we see Alexis going to Chelsea or Ozil to United. But at least then we’ll have to know if this club will finally part with a manager of the past and look to the future, or we’ll continue to regress. Sadly I feel like ambition is long gone.
