I want to say “THANK YOU” to all the contributors of articles to this website such as Dan, Martin and Konstantin Mitov to name a few. You have posted articles regularly over the years and I have read and gained valuable insight from reading your material. I consider myself to be a “Johnny-come-lately” but the contributors prior articles have encouraged me to submit an article every so often to voice my opinion for “what its worth”….:-)
There is no question that we Arsenal fans are truly “FED UP” with the overall performance and position that Arsenal are in at the moment after 12 league games.
My prior article dated November 4th asked the question: What will it take before the Board sacked Coach Emery?
I summarized in that article that things would have to go real bad at Arsenal before the Board acted.
The majority of the TV Pundits, ie. Paul Merson, Steve Nicol, Stewart Robson, Frank LeBouf and Shaka Hislop to name a few, all agree that Emery needs to be replaced, “NOW!”
We Arsenal fans ponder and ask ourselves, “Why won’t the Board act, NOW”!?
The answer is simple: BECAUSE THEY ACCEPT “MEDIOCRITY”!
What is the meaning of “Mediocrity? It means the quality of being “average or ordinary”.
The Arsenal Board are fine with Coach Emery having a little bit of success, ie. Coaching the team to Finish 5th or 6th in the league table and qualifying for the Europa League again.
This is considered success to them because they accept “MEDIOCRITY”…
Beloved Arsenal fans, I hope the Board reads our articles and constructive comments made… but I hope they will read my next statement:
The problem is that when you accept “mediocrity” as a standard, you are setting yourself up to “FAIL” sooner or later. I hope this is not the case at Arsenal for much longer.
We all read the recent news: Mauricio Pochettino was recently sacked by Spurs and now Jose Mourinho is the newly appointed coach.
The Board at Spurs will not accept “mediocrity” for long. Despite Coach Ponchettino raising the standards, league position, CL qualifications and image at Spurs during tenure that was still “not good” enough… they will not accept “mediocrity” at Spurs…
Arsenal currently sit in 6th place after 12 league games behind newly promoted Sheffield United on 17 points each but with a negative -1 GD.
Another bad result this weekend against Southampton, who have enjoyed recent success against us, Arsenal could find themselves in 10th place easily.
I ask the following two questions:
1. Is the Arsenal Board truly committed to the Arsenal team succeeding “this” season? I will answer my own question and say, YES!
Question 2. How long will they accept “mediocrity” from Coach Emery? That I cannot answer.
We all know that our beloved Arsenal is a BIG club, has a true worldwide brand estimated to worth $2.2 billion by Forbes in 2019.
It is not wise for the Board to continue to accept mediocrity. The Arsenal Brand Value will decline and the club will not be able to attract any world class players in the near future.
I don’t think that Aubameyang and Lacazette will stay at the club for much longer…
To the Board: “ACT NOW” just like the Spurs Board did….. Our Arsenal club had great success in the past….
Don’t be afraid to allow it to happen again… Please get rid of “Mediocrity” now!…..
