Arsenal are miles off Europe’s elite. by Konstantin Mitov
Well, well, everyone was questioning if one of the Champions League ties could have a comeback from 3:0 down, when in fact the other one did! But compare the atmospheres at the Etihad and the Olympico.
Both City and Roma opened with an early goal and while one stadium was buzzing, the other lacked passion. City can buy all the players and get the best of managers, but a football club starts with it’s fans and you cannot take a lesser team and just transform them into world beaters.
Look at Liverpool and where they are now and remember where they were when Klopp took them 3 years ago. Then look at where we were and where we are now with Wenger! It’s incredible what a proper manager can do for you hey?
They may have won no trophy yet, but they will play in the Champions League semis and their style of football is miles better than ours, despite the fact that individually our squad is not that much worse than theirs.
The idea gives hope at Anfield and the atmosphere is amazing there. Go back to the Emirates and see the half empty stadium. This is all down to the manager and we’ll be still stuck with Arsene next season.
But anyway, the comeback of Roma which was in every way incredible, highlights that even if you are Barcelona, you cannot let your guard down, because you’ve won one leg of the tie and with our defending, it’s not beyond us to mess up the game against CSKA.
We rested key players and it makes no sense for us not to try and put a few goals past their aging defense. Let’s just get the job done and then whoever we get, it’ll be a tougher one, but Europa is the thing we can get right now.
In other news, we might get a deal with Addidas which would be great as it’ll be a bigger deal and puma really failed with our kit designs in my opinion. I’m all up for that change, although it will not happen for another year I can bear it, but I cannot bear another year of Wenger, so hopefully some news of change on that front will follow soon!
