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.
I have just formed my own theory after reading the latest fevered dribblings of our shareholder Piers Morgan in a Metro report. Always willing to give his thoughts without knowing much about a subject, perhaps the fact that Morgan is always calling for Wenger to be sacked is working in the opposite way. His latest rant came about Wenger’s advice towards our new midfield star Elneny to be more intelligent in choosing when to shoot.
Morgan seems to think it is a good idea for our players to shoot on sight, even if they are not strikers and do not have a great strike rate. I personally think a good theory to live your life by would be to do and think the opposite of Piers Morgan, so could this be the real reason we are stuck with Wenger?
