To describe Wednesday in one word……dire !!
The expletives coming out of my household were very impressive….
A quite big statement to make, but that game was one my worst Arsenal experiences EVER….AND We have a lot recently… but it really hurt. I was slapped across the face with the reality of our ‘crapness’ (yes several slaps). We had nothing to offer…. No Leadership, No organisation, No attacking flair, No desire, No Nothing….Nada. Simply not good enough.
We have gone backwards massively this season….Last season we were two to three players off winning something…Anything. But this year, Six maybe Seven players :/
This is going to sound silly but BUT FOR F^%K SAKE ARSENAL SORT IT OUT !!
We are just going round and round in circles… But for a laugh let’s go over it again !!
- Average squad who are over paid
- A very stubborn manager
- A board not willing to give Arsene any money?
- Two billionaires fighting to own the club – for their egos.
oh and SOME fans who boo their own players when things aren’t going our way….. All adds up to a club spiralling down the drain.
The last six years have been nothing but a struggle for us as fans. The pain and anguish. The ridicule… BLAH! Arsenal why do you hurt us so. We Love you!!
One thing for sure – I am absolutely sick of people saying “Wenger needs to go”. Why?! Seriously what else could he have done ON WEDNESDAY NIGHT? Please let me know your opinions but with our current situation I think we need him to stabilise the ship….Yes you could say the ship he has helped sink, but Imagine if he goes go at the end of the season, we’d probably see:
- RVP would go
- Theo would go (personally I would pack his bags…BUT if we aren’t going to sign BETTER players we can’t afford *no pun intended* to lose any of the current bunch)
- Real Madrid style youth transfers would disappear….
- We would be left with a manager having to use Arsene’s players with no money ‘available’ for new additions…
Arsene DOES CARE about Arsenal F.C. Did you see him after the game? He looked like he was going to jump off a bridge. The man looked so despondent it was beyond belief. It was very refreshing, which sounds silly me saying this, but finally criticising his players and not passing the buck, he seems to be finally taking some ownership. Better late than never I suppose.
Maybe he/Arsenal needed this spanking to learn. I know it’s a silly way to do it but as long as we learn from this I think we can all agree it will be a good thing.
I think one of his major problems is that he isn’t questioned and is left up to his own devices. He must be questioned to keep him on his toes. The man isn’t untouchable he just needs some help. For whatever reason he has been given to much responsibility and it’s clearly effecting him now.
I think there is going to be some major changes at the club in the summer on both fronts. Only time will tell but lets hope we can finally move ‘FORWARD’.
Listening to some plonkers on TalkSport the morning after did cheer me up a little… saying Wenger has to go BLAH BLAH BLAH – they just don’t seem to think past the knee jerk reaction. Of corse we where a shambles and have been for a very long time BUT he has got us into the Champions League for the last 15 years on a shoe string budget PLAYING stylish football. Not many can hold their hands up to doing that. Who else would you have in charge of our club?? Please come forward and let The Suburban Gooner’s team know! My Vote is Arsene all day long.
All im saying is don’t push him out because he deserves so much more than that and you’d regret it….
Lets cheer up this morbid blog and talk about something we all love… TRANSFERS…. hooorarrrrrh I hear you cry.
Lets be positive for a second. IF we manage to get into the top four we could see a positive summer. Who would you like us to sign Ben? ahhh you guys!! My wish list…
Ben’s Wish List
- Mario Gotze – 18-year-old Attacking midfielder plays for Dortmund
- Siem De Jong – 23-year attacking midfielder plays for AJAX
- Yann M’Villa – 21-year-old Defensive midfielder plays for Rennes
- Jan Vortongen – 24-year-old Centre back plays for Ajax
A very unrealistic list but we need to show some intent. In my opinion these players could do it for us.
Cheers People apologies for the Rant just needed to vent. Get involved,let me know your feelings on the manager, the club and the players you want in and out. Cheers.
