While a growing number of Arsenal fans have decided that Arsene Wenger is no longer the right person to manage Arsenal and move the club forward, challenging for major trophy honours like the Premier League and Champions League that we all want, we can still expect him to actually know what is going on.
But judging from the press conference he gave today ahead of the Premier League clash with Norwich City tomorrow, the Frenchman has got the Gunners confused with another team. As reported by The Mirror he made a number of claims about the season that just do not correspond to the facts. ...........Read more
Unless Stan Kroenke and the Arsenal board have a major turnaround in the next few weeks then it looks like Arsenal fans will be stuck with Arsene Wenger as the manager for one more year at least, for better or worse. But why are the Gunners willing to keep putting faith in a manager who has consistently failed to challenge for the title in over a decade of disappointment?
I have seen various theories, ranging from the old favourite about Kroenke knowing he is on a good thing as we keep getting into the Champions League without spending money to the suggestion that Arsenal cannot find the right man to replace him and are worried about us hitting the skids like Man United did with David Moyes. ...........Read more
Arsene Wenger has finally decided to tell Arsenal fans why we couldn’t win the Premier League this season and it’s all down to our opponents who defended too well when they came to the Emirates!
Last season the Gunners averaged 2.16 goals per home game, but this campaign it dropped to a measly 1.5, but it’s not because our strikers are useless. “Our home form has not been exceptional,” Wenger said. “Our away form has been good.
“We did not score enough goals at home, especially against Crystal Palace with the amount of possession we had. ...........Read more
If you are looking for a banker bet to put on for the Arsenal v West Brom match tonight in the Premier League, maybe you should think about putting your money on the Baggies striker Saido Berahino to score a penalty, because that would be just about typical of the way things have been going for the Gunners this season.
Louis van Gaal was ribbed a couple of months ago for saying that his Manchester United team were suffering from Murphy’s law, or maybe it was the way he called it the ‘law of Murphy’ that aroused amusement in the football media. But if anyone should be complaining about things going against them it is surely Arsenal, not United, that have the best case. ...........Read more
Arsene Wenger has been a fantastic servant to Arsenal Football Club but is the Frenchman’s time at the club about to come to an end? Wenger has failed to inspire confidence at Arsenal since winning the Premier League back in 2004 but back-to-back FA Cup triumphs in the last two years have helped to ease the pressure on his shoulders.
However, the Gunners are on the verge of a trophy-less season and fans are rightfully angry at the lack of action taken by both the club and its manager. Wenger just doesn’t seem to have what it takes to lead Arsenal to the Premier League title and supporters are the ones to suffer most of all. Wenger still gets paid at the end of the day. ...........Read more
The season is not over yet, and there is plenty of value to be had from our team before it comes to a close. Arsenal have had an upturn in form and confidence in recent weeks, coinciding with the emergence of Alex Iwobi in the first-team and the goalscoring return of Danny Welbeck.
Four of our five remaining games are against teams in the lower half of the table, and you could add their current league positions to total a whopping 65, proving just how strong our end of season should be. ...........Read more
After seeing Arsenal slip up once again this season, with just a point away to West Ham when all three were required and looked in the bag when we were 2-0 up and just minutes away from the halftime break, most Arsenal fans have accepted what we already suspected strongly, that the Gunners would not be crowned EPL champions this season.
But Arsene Wenger and the Arsenal players are defiant and insist that it is not all over yet, although the crowd may be on the pitch. The attitude in the Arsenal dressing room was summed up by our Egypt international star Mohamed Elneny, with post match comments reported by Arsenal.com. ...........Read more
Arsenal fans have been waiting a long time for Arsene Wenger to see sense and realise that the team needs a real warrior to balance the creative and fluent side of the game. To be honest the Frenchman should have known because in Patrick Vieira and Gilberto Silva he had just that and Arsenal had great success with them in the centre of midfield. ...........Read more
It is hard for us Gooners to find many positives in the fact that Arsenal are currently languishing a hefty looking 11 points behind the current Premier League leaders Leicester City, even though we do have a game in hand that, if won, would reduce the gap to eight points with seven games for both sides to play.
Arsene Wenger has found at least one positive though, and that is that the situation leaves the players with no grey areas and no questions about what is needed from now until the end of the season, namely to win every single game and hope that the Foxes and the spuds drop enough points to make it count. ...........Read more
The season is far from over with Arsenal facing the crucial run-in where they can cement an automatic place in next seasons Champions League, or even (you never know!) actually end the season as Champions of England!
They deserve the support of the fans to do their very best right until the last minute of the last match, and for that to happen we need the fans to put aside their differences with Arsene Wenger, whatever they percieve his faults to be, and let the players get on with doing their job without protests and complaints. ...........Read more
