We need a win now!
After watching the game against Norwich, I came to the conclusion that if we don’t fashion out a way to win our next five games, we may as well kiss our season goodbye! That is the sad reality we need to face now.
Every business enterprise is set up to generate profit and make interest. Arsenal football club is a business venture and also a football club; we need to learn how to balance success off the pitch and on the pitch. I may be wrong but I strongly feel the owners of Arsenal are more interested in earning profit than winning trophies. They need to change that mentality and start looking for ways to make Arsenal start winning games.
Why do I say we need to start winning games soon? Simple….
Our season depends on it- When last did we check our position on the league table? Have we noticed that we are almost falling out of the top ten? Should we continue losing points and keep on sliding down the league table? No. We need to start winning games and we need it soon so that we can start climbing up the league table. If by the end of the year, we find ourselves out of the top ten, then do you think we would even qualify for the Europa league, let alone the UEFA Champions league?
Our corporate partners and brands depend on us winning games- Every business entity involved with Arsenal depend on us winning games, to strengthen their marketing strategy. When we don’t win games, we miss out on the Champions league and when we do, our brands may not want to associate with us because we are not at the high level they need to push their publicity.
The fans need to be won over again- Arsenal fans right now, are not happy with the way things are going at the moment we can kiss our season goodbye. Most fans have given up on the team. The team needs the fans, just as the fans need the team. I foresee more fans boycotting our home games, unless the team starts winning. A team like Arsenal commands a large followership around the world and these followers need something to keep them glued to their team. We desperately need a win.
Other contenders for the top four are not doing so good too- When other teams are fumbling, Arsenal should be taking advantage. Chelsea, Manchester United, Spurs and Manchester City are not in the best of form at the moment. So, if Arsenal were to start winning games, our chances of qualifying for Europe, will be very big.
I hope we all agree that Arsenal needs to start winning games and they need to start doing that, now! Or we can kiss our season goodbye right now….
