IF PUSH COMES TO SHOVE, WENGER WILL NOT BE FIRED HE WILL ONLY GO AT THE END OF THE SEASON OR IF HE CHOOSES TO RESIGN, HE HAS EARNED THAT. by don Nayr.
Arsenal have been at their worst this season, losses to swedish minnows Ostersunds followed by a 3-0 walloping at the hands of Manchester city in the Carabao cup final has seen Arsenal fans and pundits alike calling for Arsene Wenger’s head. The calls are rightly so justified as we have been in decline for a while now. We are slowly going on a downward spiral while teams such as our bitter North London neighbours and Liverpool are on an unpward spiral and clearly making a play for our top 4 spot which was the pride and joy of our manager Arsene Wenger.
Due to all this fans are calling for Wenger’s head, so is the Arsenal manager to be fired? WRONG.
The reasons why-
1. We are talking about a man who has been manager since 1996, the board considers him a club legend and there is no way the board wakes up and fires him without giving him a respectful way to exit, he has earned that.
2. There is a way to do things and the Arsenal board, who are mostly old school guys, follow this way.
Stan Kroenke claimed last year after giving Wenger a new year contract: “it would have been very easy to fire Wenger.” What he meant is that the board considered all options and although the option that seemed most feasible to us fans was to fire Wenger, they decided against it due to many options such as replacements. So it might take more than a few losses for the board to fire Wenger. To justify my point, last season Ivan Gazidis proposed that Wenger goes to a director of football role, the thought of firing wenger was not even considered.
3. Wenger has been called by a former player to be like a gambler. He has lost all his chips and he knows that he should go home, but he doesn’t want to as he believes he can change his luck. At this point in the season Wenger still believes he can have a successful season, as per his comments in recent games he even sees himself getting the top 4. This is a man who has survived so many calls before for his head. Wenger seems to get the best out of Arsenal just when we think he is done for.
So fellow Gooners due to my reasons above we might have to wait till the end of season review to see the end of Arsene Wenger. The media is doing what the media does but we all know better. A little more patience.
At the end of season review, Wenger goes upstairs and we get a good young energetic manager like Jardim, or go for an old experienced head like Ancelotti to steady the ship.
Feel free to disagree.
