Wenger’s plan is working by SP
After losing our first Premier League game of the season to West Ham, Arsenal have clawed themselves back into contention and can move into second place this afternoon. Arsenal fans have been clamouring for Wenger to make us into true title contenders for years, and now he has actually done that the fans are still calling for his head. Why?
It seems that it is not good enough to challenge for the League, we have to try hard to win the Champions League as well? It is a fact that we all know Arsenal have little hope of winning the biggest trophy, and with two games a week Wenger made a concious decision to play his reserves in the midweek games (i.e. Champions League and League Cup) and save his A team for the Premier League. This tactic has worked so far, and for sure as our B team gets more games under their belt they will improve as well and start winning more games. This is why I am confident we will still progress from our Champions League group.
This is also why Wenger was absolutely right to say we look at each competition seperately. I don’t see why we should be absolutely down,” Wenger said on Arsenal.com. “We are on the back of three or four good results in the Premier League. Yes, we had a disappointment in the Champions League, and we have to analyse it well. It was disappointing to lose, but overall every competition is different, you have to go in a different competition in a different state of mind and we have to be inspired by what we did at Leicester.”
It’s a shame that the blinkered fans refuse to believe that we are actually doing well, and are on course to challenge for the title, which is what we all want isn’t it? So why all the insults at Wenger all the time? Stop moaning and start supporting your team as we make our way to glory at the end of the season. Just imagine, you could be Chelsea fans.
