I wanted to believe that something might change, but honestly seeing our performances, I knew we were finished before the game started. The look on the players faces says it all. You see a bunch of people, who’ve landed the contracts of their lives here and they literally don’t care at all. The shirt means nothing to them. This eventually reflects the results, the mood and the fans.
Which player on this team relates to you in any way? I wouldn’t mind seeing everybody gone. Not a single one of them will be missed. We don’t have one player who has the ex factor. Alexis was the last one at the club and we shunted him out, because he had a fighting spirit. He could do something on his own and make the crowd jump off it’s seats. We are away and we need a result, and we drop our 350k/week player out of the squad. What does that tell you?
We know the players are a joke, because they’ve been a joke for years in a row, but the manager? What on earth is he doing? The only player who played with passion this season was Ramsey and he has most likely already played his last game for us. We lack leaders, characters, people who can take responsibility.
We have the third highest wage bill. I thought we hired people to deal with contracts. We started the season with a 3 man team to not allow one person all the power like Wenger, but in the end we are back to square one and two out of the three are out, including the man who picked the manager in the end. How on earth will you move forward with Iwobi, Mustafi, Mkhitaryan and Ainsley Maitland-Niles? What is the last one doing on a yellow card, with a mindless tackle? Not that we would’ve won with 11 men, because we were second best all day long, but this goes beyond schoolboy defending.
Sokratis said the players are not stupid, but they are. They show it on the pitch for the whole world to see. We might have 3 more points this season, but overall, has something really changed compared to last one? The painful truth is no. Remember that last season meant Wenger got sacked. Emery should be too, if we’re judging by the same standards. And I hear people from the club coming out with the ambition for us to be the best in the world. What are you smoking at the Emirates indeed? How do we plan to be the best with 45 million to spend?
We were gifted a lot of chances. At the end one makes his own fate and we chose to die in shame rather than take on an opportunity. Do you see why Overmars doesn’t want to return? Where are Henry, Bergkamp and Vieira? They are a distant memory of what this club once was. Now only the name has remained the same.
We should’ve appointed a manager who would change our style. I would take Jose Mourinho right now. I was afraid to say it, but it can’t be any worse and I’d just love to have someone who would take a rip at those players. Drop them and play the kids. They’ve been safe for far too long. They make me feel so bad I just want them gone on a personal level. If I knew the situation would be as it is now, I wouldn’t really care if we had Wenger still here. At least while he was here I truly didn’t care. I felt angry for a second, then I just knew that it’s exactly the same as usual and stopped bothering.
The reason Usmanov left, was because he knew, that even owning shares at the club won’t help. We don’t need change anymore. We need a rebirth like a phoenix. We need a complete change of philosophy from the way that we run as a football club, to the players on the pitch, and even the fans on the stands. We need a new owner, but it won’t happen.
Unlike the people who shame this club every day, I’d like to apologize. To the fair readers of this site, who’ve beared with my articles. I’m sorry for wasting your time, because I truly believed we might change, but in a system where everything is rotten from top to bottom, change is not possible. It’s easy to say, forget what happen and focus on the future, but the reason we’re here is we always forget. This is why we will be reminded on the football pitch in every game.
We will not win the Europa league. Even if luck strikes and we do, it’d just be a huge paper over the grand canyon. The world is not a fairy-tale. The strongest survive. We are weak and our idea is not to survive, it is to feed Stan K. Congratulations on a job well done again. He bought the shares of Usmanov on a LOAN! One that the club will have to pay for itself. A club that needs at least 200 million spend to repair the damage.
I’m sorry again, for banging on this drum, but worry not, I will not be doing this anymore. It’s pointless. We will never have every fan bring a Kronke/Emery out banner at the stadium and thus so we’ll be stuck like this forever. We don’t have an Obi-Wan-Kenobi figure, whose our only hope. We brought this upon ourselves and we deserve it. For being quiet and allowing things to go out of control. Now we must suffer.
I’m finished with this. Will I return? You can find the same answer in the question “Do those players have the balls to play under pressure?”. We all know that one.
Hope you all have a happy summer. I’ll try and focus on bigger and better things than Arsenal. Football has wasted too much of my life for nothing. Hopefully everyone of you has something better to do too.
