Wenger losing his cool once again. Interesting stuff before United by KM
Hello there fellow Arsenal fans. You think that with Arsene once you hit rock bottom there’s no going under, but the guy never disappoints. He threatened to leave the press conference when the journalists asked him if he was wrong about the goalkeeper selection and if the fans are angry about what happened?
When you react in a manner of “Stop that or we stop the press conference.” what does that tell you? He’s angry because he knows he is wrong. He is angry because he is used to have an untouchable status. And when that starts to get questioned, he starts to get angry. It’s nice though. I like seeing some sort of thing that can make Wenger care just a little bit.
The boss was very angry, because deep down he know Mourinho is right about it. We all know it, it’s not a public secret. Wenger said “I make the decisions i think is best for the team on the day. I am accountable on the results of my team and the way we play football.” Lets dissect this. If we take in to account what he said about Tuesday being a must win game, doesn’t this mean that we need our best squad?
We all know Petr Cech is our best goalkeeper, so maybe the decision is wrong. Unlike LVG, Wenger will never admit a mistake. It’s not his style to accept that he might be wrong. That’s why we see the same thing every season. The second bit about the responsibility is a funny one. What exactly is Wenger accountable for? Nobody on the board cares if we win a game or not. He’s not accountable for anything, because if we lose 8-2 to United or 2-3 to Olympiacos at home, he’s not even under any sort of pressure at all.
Last but not least – “the way we play football”. This is another funny one, because honestly the football we play has not been that good. We have won 1 home game this season and with Man United coming next I don’t feel too confident.
This press conference highlighted why there’s no director of football, no transfer consultant or practically anybody related to football except Arsene. The assistant coach at Arsenal is the yes man who just sits there because there has to be one.
What I hope this would bring is Wenger resigning from the club. But since we all know that’s a joke and it will never happen. I hope he comes out fighting. I hope he sits down and watches every aspect of United’s game. I also hope he has a word with the defense. I expected Gabriel to start with Kos as the process to replace Mertesacker looks like it has begun, but with the Boss’s injury he doesn’t have any choice.
What is sad is that there’s no real positive outcome of the game for us. Paul Merson said we’d win 2:1 but even he said he expects United to score first and if they do, we’re in huge troubles. We couldn’t overturn Olympiacos although we had a lucky equalizer. We didn’t learn 2 times throughout the game so we lost 3:2.
Even if United score an own goal and we win by the skin of our teeth, the problem will remain in the long term. A win would just give the AKBs a reason to lurk out of the shadows and say how great he is when we’re in desperate need of change. Arsene’s godlike status needs to be blasted into oblivion for us to move forward.
And forward is not just a win on Sunday. It’s a change of approach that would put Arsenal back amongst the elite. Enjoy the weekend.
