Manchester United climbed to within one point of Arsenal in fourth place tonight, while Arsenal are struggling to attract the support they are succumbed to.
Manchester United beat Crystal Palace 2-0 tonight, and have closed the gap between themselves and Arsenal to only one point, but the latter have a match tomorrow to restore their four-point lead.
At this point in the season, the Gunners can not allow themselves to slip up, but whilst the club are desperate to reignite their side, the fans seem disinterested. Only 18 of the 134 seating sections are sold out according to e-ticketing (at the time of writing), and there has been claims of a social media walk-out being arranged during the game.
Should Arsenal fail to win the must-win match against West Brom tomorrow, there will be uproar, but I would be more livid with the so-called supporters than the team or the management.
You are supposed to be a fan through thick-or-thin, highs-or-lows, and your team needs you now! You want to push for a new manager, but you want all of our best players to stay? Who is going to be more effected tomorrow, Ozil and Sanchez or Wenger and the board?
I know times are hard right now, I’m as annoyed as any of you that we have fallen from title-challengers to fighting to stay in the top-four, but I will be in that stadium tomorrow cheering my team on to rectify things. The be-all and end-all is that our problems are on the pitch, as if we was winning and top of the league, there would be no problems!
If we drop out of the top-four this season, yes, maybe Wenger will have his hand forced to move on, but I don’t even believe he would leave if we did! But I do know that Ozil and Sanchez deserve to be playing in the Champions League, and I want us to sign other players who fit the bill also.
We are already expected to see a huge influx of top players to the Premiership this summer, and we will struggle to land any of those if we did lose our grip on qualification for Europe’s elite competition.
GET BEHIND YOUR TEAM!
