Why Arsenal Fans Should Stop Protesting and Get Behind the Team! by AT
As a result of Arsenal’s dismal start to the new campaign and following back-to-back Premier League defeats at the hands of Swansea City and Manchester United, the pressure is once again mounting on the Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger. As is the norm if the Gunners are doing badly, the group of Arsenal fans known as the ‘Wenger Out Brigade’ are out in full voice and are calling for the Frenchman’s head. But this time, the anti-Wenger forces seem to be stronger than ever.
Now while I am in no way a part of the opposing ‘Wenger Knows Best’ Brigade, I have to say that Arsenal fans calling for Wenger to be sacked are out of their minds. There is no way we are going to get another quality manager who is going to join us almost halfway into the season and take us towards the title. Let’s face it, the likes of Jurgen Klopp or Pep Guardiola aren’t gonna quit their respective jobs to come and save Arsenal’s season, or would you rather prefer Steve Bould to take over as the interim manager?
What I’m trying to say is Arsene Wenger will be our manager at least until the end of the season, whether we like it or not. In order to replace him, we need to have a world-class manager ready to take over, which we don’t at the moment. So in my opinion, all these anti-Wenger movements and imminent protests are pointless, he is not going to be sacked even if we find ourselves in the relegation zone. So instead of pointless protests dividing the Arsenal fanbase into two, what we really should be doing is getting behind the team and help them see the season out.
Quite honestly, I do agree that Arsene Wenger has lost it a little bit and I do agree that the club could do with some new ideas and possibly a new philosophy, but the reality of the situation is that there will be no change at least until the end of the season. So until then, let’s stand united and support our team.
