Arsene Wenger has come under intense pressure from the fans this season, leading to banners being produced for the recent win over Norwich City.
Tottenham right-back Kyle Walker yesterday posted on social media to thank the Spurs fans for being the ‘twelfth man’ this season, pushing them to secure their place in the top four, while enjoying having scored the most league goals and conceding the least.
With the fans behind you, pushing you all the way, the possibilities are endless. The Invincibles team had our full backing, but after losing some key players to our rivals, and following our switch to the Emirates Stadium, we have failed to give our team the same support.
This season especially, tension has been the focal point of the atmosphere, and the fans have not only turned on the manager, but on the owners, and a number of under-performing players.
Theo Walcott, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Olivier Giroud are all said to be wanted out by the fans, and this sort of attitude is not going to be welcomed by any of the players. Alexis Sanchez is even rumoured to want out of the Emirates this summer, which is only going to make the situation worse.
What has Arsene Wenger got to do to get the backing?
Should Tottenham fold like a cheap tent and hand us second place in the table, would anything change? If he signed Benzema, Cavani, Higuain or Zlatan, I still believe that any positive reaction would be short-lived.
It is almost as if many fans are adamant on being unhappy about the goings on, and will only be happy with the Premier League title, which is catch 22, because you wont get one without cheering the team through the thick and the thin.
Can we start the new season with a positive attitude and just enjoy what could be Arsene Wenger’s final season?
