Arsene Wenger is facing Everton away today with only one point from our four first matches as the visiting team, but with the Toffees having an awful start to the season we should surely be in line to break our duck this afternoon. But Wenger insists that the only way we can get back on track is if all the fans give their support right to the end of every game. “It is in the back of your mind to always prepare your team in the best possible environment.” Le Prof said.
“What is for sure today is that fans have a preconceived idea of how the season will be very quickly, that it will not be good. In football, even the best team in the world will have good or bad games. That’s why the most important thing at the end of the day is to convince your fans that having a positive season doesn’t depend on one or two games.
“You can only have a positive season if we are all behind the team until the end of the season. Then you can accept the verdict. It is for sure that to be in and out with your support or your commitment as a player, it doesn’t work. Top-level sport today demands consistent commitment on every front because it’s so difficult to win the games. I can completely understand that people are unhappy when you don’t win. You can understand that but as long as the game goes on, you want people to be behind the team.”
So let’s give them our wholesale unconditional support today and start moving back up the table. Once we have an away win under our belts we can surely go on another long winning run!
