Arsene delivers exactly what his new contract promised – the same old Arsenal results! by Konstantin Mitov
Same mistakes again. People can call me negative all day long, but I was right again. I said that giving him a new contract wouldn’t change a thing and it took 2 games to prove this correct. I do not enjoy this, but it’s hard not to see it coming.
We gave away the ball too much against Leicester in the build up and a Xhaka mistake cost us a goal. What happens vs Stoke? Same player, same mistake, same conceded goal. This was clear evidence we need a new CM which we will not get. Worst thing is, I can’t blame the players, despite the fact they are not good enough.
The manager is supposed to see their flaws and correct them, but Arsene is incapable of doing so. The starting 11 was wrong again. We put the Ox on the right and before the usual collapse, he looked decent, but we put Bellerin on the left and he of course struggled. We had two center backs on the bench and two LB as CB when they are both good at LWB.
Arsene didn’t fail to mess up the subs too by taking out our best striker to put on Theo Walcott of all people who didn’t failed to produce nothing. We looked terrible going forward, but worst we started the second half sloppy again, just like Chelsea and just like Leicester. This time we couldn’t get ourselves out of the mess.
One of the major problems people at Arsenal have and this includes large portions of the fans too is short term sightseeing. When we win, nobody looks at the mistakes although they keep repeating themselves. You will get away once, twice, but why is it so wrong to correct things you don’t do ok when you win too?
Another huge problem is the fact that we won 9/10 games last season. This was red herring. We beat beach squads. Why didn’t we beat Stoke 4-1 now? Because they had something to play for. The new formation didn’t save the defense. We’ve conceded 4 goals in 2 games already and we continue to experiment with our defense.
All and all, we really deserve Arsene. He ruins us, makes us weak, makes us a joke, repeats the same mistakes every time, always has an excuse, but you know what we allow this to happen. We have a board that lacks ambition of any sort and fans who are happy with whatever comes their way.
Last season the marches against Arsene had to continue until he is gone, but now he’ll serve us this for 2 more years. If I am Ozil, the Ox or Sanchez I will happily wait out for my contract to run out and go to a decent team. It’s the truth, but a lot of Arsenal fans don’t want to admit it.
