Have Arsenal board and players thrown Wenger under a bus?

Well Gooners, that was not exactly what we wanted to see from Arsenal today, who I have to say were pretty lucky to come aThe Mirror reports.

Hardly the ringing endorsement of our manager that we have become used to from the club. So the boss would certainly have been hoping for some help from the players that he has helped so much over the years, but that is not how I would describe the performance from the Gunners today.

We did show some fight, as the three yellow cards will testify, but it did not feel like a team pulling together and playing for the manager, it felt like a few individuals desperately trying to stop a rudderless ship from crashing.

Three incidents pointed out by Gary Neville on Sky Sports tell the story clearly. Walcott sulked off when being replaced after a patchy performance at best. Ozil pulled out of a tackle he could well have won against the Man City keeper which could have won us the game. Koscielny apparently chose to come off at half time when he may have been alright to continue.

Add all this up and you have to ask whether the Arsenal team and board just threw Wenger under a bus_

    The only person throwing anything under the bus is Wenger, he is throwing his legacy, his ethics, his character, and Arsenal all together in a bundle under that bus.

    1. Don’t forget the Fans…..Wenger Out!!!

      I see a lot of thumb downs today, after a draw. I wonder how many many thumb downs there will be after a simple win, Arsenal fans really forget easily, and Wenger knows when to use his magical convincing moments to his advantage.. soon people will be begging him to ‘sign da ting’

  2. Gooner Craig says:

    Bringing Kos off was the right choice. If he played on and got injured then everyone’s would have destroyed Wenger!

    Ozil and Theo don’t surprise me at all!!! Ozil is too soft and doesn’t have the character to lead us to glory and Theo is the most inconsistent player in the world! We all know what he’s capable of but I just don’t understand why he doesn’t show up every game?!!!… Well, not does AFC so maybe it’s a team thing

  3. vish says:

    Walcott was totally anonymous barring the lucky goal.
    Ozil already told us he doesn’t like to tackle or defend. So that’s that.
    Risking koscielny would have been foolish. Substituting him was the right choice.

    Didn’t watch the 2nd half as it was getting to annoying. And then you have the home supporters fighting with one another over thon so called manager we have. The club is falling apart. What Hexton?

  5. BUR says:

    Sorry, ……what next?

    Damn right they should throw him under the bus make sure its a double decker and not a carol decker lol. He has had his last time now at arsenal. Time for the fans board and players to call it in. And get wenger. Packing maybe playing for whatever pride is left now. Fa cup semi still very uncertain after todays result city could have seen us off at any time just very lax in front of goal a more ruthless team could have killed us off first half. But city will be more up for the cup at the end of April. We have a few games between now and then to turn form around

    Watching juve at napaoli makes me even more certain we need allegri. I know they have experienced defenders in the team but they are so well drilled and even mandzukic is working hard for the team.
    And on Napaoli martens, hansik, cajelon and I’m signed spoilt! Can we have one please!
    Back in arsenal I’m sick of it I just feel we need to light a fire under not only the players but the whole club way too placid, yawn yawn!
    Watched udinese against torino earlier and both clubs domestically have nothing to play for and they were both going for it to full pace. I want some of that again.

    Akb’s have Arsenal right where they wanted, fighting for a place in Europa.

    These akb’s are to blame as much as Wenger.

    1. Ugabooga says:

      Fyi, iv been aob for years now.

    How did the board get involved in this article? Seems like it got tagged on.
    If the board was going to throw Wenger under the bus then they would sack him ASAP and use him as a scapegoat.

    We have a weak CM and we keep losing the CM battles, that plays into Ozils weakness and hurts us twice as much, we need that overhaul and I do like how I am hearing that the board wants that as well.

    Did Bob hear how Henry said it was Dein who made transfers happen and now he has no idea…

    Henry has been less than kind towards Arsenal and appears to take the chances to have a little moan (signs of a true gunner! lol), I do not think he would have said he had no idea if he thought Wenger was responsible.

    If the board is serious about the rebuild by Wenger then how is that throwing Wenger under the bus?

    1. arsenalfan1 says:

      Wenger threw his friend Dein (the man who hired him) under the bus (metaphorically speaking). and pocketed 100million+ for this act. As soon as Dein was out of the way and Wenger was in full control of operations the club immediately began its slide into mediocrity. When Wenger joined we were the top club in London now we are ranked third. The slide continues.

  10. Unsung Heroes, Gabriel, Ospina even Monreal worked pretty hard……Ozil, Sanchez and Bellorin obviously their minds and hearts are somewhere else…..Lamppost well we all know that for him and his mentor is not about trophies is just a journey….Walnut well he scored the goal other than that average (below) ……

    Wenger has become like Cancer. And the Wengerits are those who have accepted fate a long time ago. When your fanbase start to fight each other, and other manager come to the rescue and start to tell you what of a great man you are, you know its out of pity, and your time surely has come to go.

    Wenger needs Arsenal more then we need him. This is something you all need to think about. Thats the reason he cant go. There is no future for him anymore. To his luck, his own legacy cant protect his fault for ever, and so he ends und becoming a loser, and only few will remember him as a great men bec of this. How you finish something is always important, not how you start em.
