Even Van Gaal admits that Wenger needs to perform better by KM
Hello again. So ahead of what used to be the title decider, the best game in England, it’s once again Arsenal v Man United close to the top of the table. So whats different? Both teams are shadows of their former selves, but United are starting to get back on track, while we keep digging in the mud with Wenger.
In his press conference LVG admitted that he would not be happy with Wenger’s record if he was in that situation. Wow Louis – really? I mean you would not be happy going almost 10 years without a trophy and failing to win the Champions League in 20?
If you look at the stats, United actually share the best defensive record in the league with Tottenham. The problem is that our attack is so predictable. We really need Giroud up front. Walcott means we are throwing balls hoping he’d run past their defense.
We need to suck the game into our half and hit them on the break. It’s our best chance for me. But our defense is so bad and our best defender is out so it will be hard. If this was Arsenal of 10 years back I’d take nothing but a win in this game, but now it’s going to be hard.
Wenger needs a win. People in England love to give time to things, sometimes it’s way too much time, but Arsene cannot afford any more slip ups. We are no longer buying the no money thing and stadium moves. The excuses are dried up and results have to be placed on the table.
Wenger simply must come out fighting. We’ll likely drop out of the Champions League, so we have to do something on home soil. If Wenger loses to United on Sunday he’ll be begging to have a press conference like the one he threatened to leave.
It may be just the beginning of the season, but we’ve already seen a sign of things to come and if Wenger doesn’t do his homework for Sunday it is not looking pretty.
