The Arsenal fans again showed exactly how they feel by Konstantin Mitov
So we beat Stoke 3:0 and to be honest I can’t be unhappy giving the Potters a helping hand to the championship, but for me the biggest story was the attendance again.
It’s not the weather, it’s not the kick off time. People very well know what happened this season and after Wenger was handed 2 years for his failure, this season it’s got even worse.
The excuses have dried up and very interestingly Arsene missed the pre-game press conference. He looks tired from the pressure at Arsenal. He will not quit though, and it’s highly unlikely that he’ll be sacked. If we were talking to potential replacements, the media would surely know, right?
The story about Tuchel made no sense really, due to the history with Mislintat, and it was only fuelled by Mattaus’es interview. What is worrying is that if we’re getting a new manager and we’re not talking to one now, then we’re heading for another season of misery with him in charge.
It’s a World Cup year. If you are joining Arsenal, you’d want to know what you’d be working with. We’re likely to sell Ramsey, Bellerin is 99% gone and Wilshere might leave, and although I’ll not miss those players too much, who will play?
We don’t have a proper winger in the squad and the defense needs massive rebuilding. This was one of the worst first halves of football I have seen and before Lacazzete came on we were pretty dull.
It was nice to see Alex sharp and it was great to see Aubameyang giving him the penalty to lift his confidence! It’s all about the Europa league. It was really sweet to see such a gesture and I really hope a new manager puts both of them o together next season.
Onto Thursday, a lot of people underestimate CSKA Moscow, but it could be a very tricky game and we can shoot ourselves in the foot at any time, so don’t take it lightly. They beat Lyon 3:2 away and a trip to Russia is always hard!
That said, we should have enough to win, and I have a sneaky feeling UEFA might push us and Atletico to the final in an attempt to generate more views as this European competition especially isn’t too popular. Hopefully we’ll do the job on Thursday!
Have a happy week!
