Mourinho still has a point about Arsenal by DN
No matter how much Arsenal fans want to comfort ourselves by saying that Arsene Wenger did a brilliant job by keeping the Gunners in the Champions League when his transfer budget was basically a piece of string and a winning smile, the fact is that football is all about results, especially in the modern era.
So Jose Mourinho may be a pr@ck, but he does have a valid point when he taunts Arsene Wenger and Arsenal about the lack of trophy success in the last decade. I firmly believe that Wenger has done a great job for us in the circumstances, but circumstances have changed and Chelsea´s spending power is now on a par with ours.ç
So Wenger really needs to produce in the next few seasons and a good start would be to beat Chelsea on Sunday. Only a fool would still believe that Arsenal can win the title after Chelsea beat Man United last week, but we should already be looking ahead to next season. I know the manager is.
If we fail to beat Chelsea on Sunday it will not make a lot of difference to this season but it might make a difference to Wenger and more importantly, the players. It is time to deliver, in fact it is way past time. If Wenger´s run against his rival extends to 13 games without a win this weekend, we have a problem, don´t you think?
And we should not get so caught up in the recent run of form because until Arsenal prove that we can win the title again, there is still a hell of a lot for Wenger and his team to prove.
