Arsene Knows Best – Blame Arsene for Arsenal woes! by KickAssFan
Every good driver/car-owner knows that one’s car must be WELL MAINTAINED at all times in order to avoid unforeseen regrettable breakdown or fatal happenings as a result of any component of the car malfunctioning. You must know the state of your car before taking it out on the road (you do things like opening the bonnet and checking the oil, gas/fuel, hydraulic, water level, headlamps etc.). You must pay close attention to your car while driving it (listening for possible signs of a fault—-they could come spontaneously, but often not without warning). And when you are back in your garage, you must leave the car with a good knowledge of its shape after using it for the day, just to be sure that nothing about it would be surprising to you the next day or time you would want to use it.
Arsenal_FC is like a car and Wenger is the driver (NOT THE OWNER). The driver and the owner are not always the same person. In football, they are never the same person: the owner is the majority shareholder, the driver is the manager. Interestingly, I’d like to see the fans as the passengers who pay to be conveyed in the car (which in this assumption of mine is used as a taxi) and the players are the car’s components. If there’s anything wrong with the car, the driver is in the best position to know about what the exact problem might be. If that car never gets to the expected destination and breaks down on the road, particularly in the middle of nowhere, that would be an awful and terribly deplorable experience for the passengers (of course you do know that if there’s a fatal accident, everyone’s life could be lost—-car gets damaged beyond repair, driver dies as well as passengers). We are all together in this, intertwined.
At Arsenal, being the manager, Wenger decides which player is good enough to be bought, which player is good enough to play in the first team, which player should start or be “benched”, what tactics (formation and style of play) to use, when to bring on or take off a player (substitutions) during games, etc. Basically, how well he performs these tasks is what really determines how good or bad our season will be—-whether we will win any trophy at all.
So, why are things the way they are (abysmal) at Arsenal_FC? Well, apparently Mr. Wenger has failed to properly maintain/manage the club. He’s been wilfully negligent and it’s cost us so much. Blame Wenger.
