Arsenal Legend Slams Wenger Dictatorship “It’s embarrassing!”

With tensions continuing to rise over Arsenal’s dismal campaign so far, fans have been very vocal about their criticism of the Arsene Wenger regime. But apart from the fans, a number of former stars have also expressed their discontent over the regime, none more so than the Gunners’ second-highest goal-scorer, Ian Wright, who claims that he would like to help the club ‘at any capacity’ but Wenger won’t let him.

As quoted by the Daily Mirror, the Arsenal legend said: “No one around Arsene Wenger can front him up and say ‘you’re wrong’, he has got people around him that he loves.

“Martin Keown is the only one that’s fronted him in the last couple of years and he got him out. They’re actually saying he will have a say in the next manager. It’s embarrassing what is going on up there at the moment.”

Personally, I think Wrighty is spot on with this one. It is no secret that Arsene indeed surrounds himself with rallying ‘yes men’ who are all in agreement with him. It’s almost like a dictatorship where no one is allowed to go against Wenger and his ideology. Perhaps it was for this same reason that Tony Adams was declined when he offered his services to the club.

Surely, the writing is on the wall for Wenger. There are rumors of the club contacting Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri for the job but it remains to be seen whether Wenger will finally admit defeat and step down. If that happens, we need a shake-up of the whole backroom staff. If Wenger does go, which he should, then his troop of ‘yes men’ must also follow him through the door so the club can have a new perspective at moving forward.

      Yeah,I like Ian Wright too, I remember him from his Palace days, I used to go to their home games with my older brother, when I was a young scallywag ? ? Great player in his day but he’s a bit of a bandwagon jumper when it comes to being a pundit, especially when it comes to Arsenal and you can also add some sour grapes to that ?.
      The thing is, Wenger doesn’t allow the former players back who bad mouthed him to the media, after they left ?? which Ian did when he joined West Ham after being shown the door by Wenger.

    You have to wonder if the departure of all the other Arsenal legends .. TH14, Tony Adams, Viera even Arteta had something to do with this. It is very likely that Steve Bould is being hamstrung by this as well.

    Absolute power is not good for anyone, and that has unfortunately been the case at Arsenal since David Dein left.

    It’s also very stupid for Wenger to not use all the resources available to him. Keown knows his stuff, he and the other older heads were a big reason for our foreign contingent becoming the tough competitors that they were. We often heard them say how our CB’s toughened them up in training, they probably found some matches less physical and demanding than the training sessions. Ian wright himself became a warrior thanks to that generation, and Arsene decides against their advice, lunacy. I like listening to Keown, you don’t get an idea of any selfish reasoning in his talk, unlike others I could name. The three I like listening to the most are Parlour, Wrighty and Keown. I like Quinny too, top bloke and a proper gentleman. Dixon thrown in also makes for some great experience yet to be tapped, but it looks to stay that way, we missed out by not having all these greats around the club.
