SORRY Arsene but its time to go!!!

Time for a fresh start

Time for a fresh start

Recently Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger asked the fans to “judge him in may“. Well its may Arsene and you let us down yet again, for the 4th season in a row we have won nothing. its now time to dump wengers  youth project and to move forward.

Posted on Arsenal Action By King Malta

I stated that i would give Arsene until the end of the season before I passed any judgement, until when we had nothing left to play for. And that time is now.

This season has been absolutely appalling. I don’t care that we’re currently on a double figure undefeated league run, I don’t care that our team is ‘improving’ and I don’t want to hear anymore about jaded players.
I have often been lenient towards the Arsenal management and some players, I beleive in fully supporting the club you love, and backing them up in every way possible….but sometimes you just to be honest and pull no punches.

It’s time for change. Arsene Wenger has been an AWESOME manager for the club and has done much good….but 4 fruitless seasons of transition have left us nowhere, and its not as if we didn’t have our chances. Arsene let go players he shouldnt have, or at the wrong times. It was NEVER right to let go of Vieira. Ljungberg really should have played another year as backup, Pires had more in him also. Flamini was coming off a FANTASTIC year….I still don’t understand why they allowed him to leave…and then didn’t replace him at all. Hleb…..sure, we bought Nasri…but selling Hleb wasn’t the best choice…however, i feel that was more Hleb’s choice than otherwise. Letting Senderos out on loan seems ridiculous to me. It was OBVIOUS last year we needed depth….so we loan a CB out??? WHY?! and then loaning traore as well….WE HAVE NO DEPTH IN THE BACKLINE ARSENE! Traore should have at least come back in January. Why do you think the players are jaded Arsene??? Because there’s no depth….you can see that they’re jaded…THEN INCREASE THE DEPTH OF THE SQUAD!

Then, the constant lack of signings. If we were willing to spend money we’d have a world class side….so many players have come out and said they would LOVE to play for Arsenal, why not at least TRY to coax them over. It can’t be true we have NO money….why else are there conflicting reports suggesting otherwise coming from within the club? and why did we manage to FINALLY spend a little this year? And Arshavin….WHAT a BRILLIANT signing….but WHY halfway through the year when he was cup-tied?

And then, the way Arsene lines up the team is sometimes confusing. Adebayor again and again proved he struggles up front alone, he needed a partner, but Arsene continues to play him alone, I know a lot of our strikers are injured, but why not give Carlos a go up there with Ade? And then….the central pairings!!! Nasri as a holding midfeilder???

The Charade over Gallas’ captaincy…the comments of some of our players…I could go on. Now, Wenger is not at fault for what these players say, but how about comdemning it more. There NEEDS to be a standard set within the club of what is acceptable, and what isn’t. And if players like Ade truly are too stupid to understand what they say to the media….KEEP THEM OUT OF THE LIMELIGHT!

Then….the focus on youth. Yes, youth is important, but so is experience and skill. We NEED some older heads in the club, in the success of the invinceibles, the club had older, more experienced heads like Bergkamp, Lehmann, Campbell, Parlour, Gilberto, Ljungberg, Pires, Vieira, Keown! So much experience, so much to learn from, and so many players that had the experience and the maturity to be CONFIDENT that they could pull back leads and win against all odds, and pull out scrappy draws on the odd occasion that they didnt play well.
I understand this team has great potential, but we can’t rely on the same old comments forever, we need to purchase age, experience, and already blossomed skill with the youth we have in the team….and it doesn’t seem Arsene is willing to do this….or even sees that its neccessary.

Arsene has done so much….but maybe it’s time to bring in someone who will do things differently….someone will bring a new flavour, a new approach, and a new mindset that is required in this financial, tough, money driven world of football.

I’m sorry Arsene…..and I’ll shed a tear when you eventually leave one day….but it IS time to go…while your marvellous history is intact, and while this glorious clubs is also.

    Actually, I managed to make my point in a relatively coherent, albeit brief, manner, therefore I think the head is still clear. I have an opinion that differs from the author and expressed it. On the other hand you haven’t managed to do that.

    Just because they don’t share your views on keeping Wenger does not make them wrong.

    I think most people agree with but unfortunately we don’t see it happening (the one or two additions that’ll make the difference)

    realistically it would be crazy to get rid of Arsene and more than a little knee-jerk.
    Granted it has been 4 years that we haven’t won anything but his spell in charge has been one of the most successful in our history, and in a far more competitive financial era.

    The fact is under Arsene we now have a world class stadium, academy, training grounds & youth scouting network. If you look at the players he has brought in previously granted they were often young (vieira, cesc etc), but quite often they came because of him.

    Although one can question some of his transfer, the overall policy throughout his reign has been a success, especially as he has had to work with relatively meagre funds. Thank god he cares about offield issues as well, Out of the top four we are the only ones in relatively little debt. Man-U have a billion pounds mortgaged against the club, Chelski 800mill and Liverpool close to 600 mill.

    From the start we had to the season it is miraculous that we got to a semi final in both the FA cup and Champions league and guaranteed fourth and potentially fighting for 3rd. The only reason why we were able to get it together was because we had an experienced manager who kept the faith in the players and was able to steer the ship!

    My feeling is Arsene will spend this summer and I reckon he will get some great players in. Perhaps it is blind optimism but I honestly believe we will be in with a good shout for the league next season.

    Something all of the guys (sadly mostly yids and united fans) in the office say about Arsenal fans, is that all we do is complain about the team and the management and it does seem to be the case at times. What we need to do is get behind the team and really push for third! We have alot to look forward to next season:
    -Arshavin for the whole campaign
    -A fit Edduardo and hopefully Rosicky
    -A far more experienced squad generally.

    Last night is history, 2 unlucky goals in 11 minutes, not many teams can come back from that.

    People can “reply” as they see fit. The authors can’t expect people to agree with them that is a bit silly isn’t it??

    I think you will find there is one “monkey fucking cunt” and that is you.

    Ole Gunner,
    I did not suggest firing Wenger at all. What I am saying is that Kroenke is a shrewd businessman with a great deal of experience in high-end sport, albeit in the US. He isn’t buying Arsenal for a pleasant jaunt year in year out. He is a winner who wants to win. What I am saying is that it will be his club, not Arene’s and he will demand success. Of course he will want Wenger to stay but he will also want to provide him with the tools to win trophies and that means money, money, money. Are there any of us who thought that this squad was strong enough or who believe that our defence is good enough for top, top level competition like the CL. That extra few world-class players would, I believe, take us to new heights. I imagine that Kroenke knows this and the interesting thing will be if and when Arsene accepts the fact that we are not good enough at the moment. The signing of Arshavin shows the direction we should be heading otherwise I think we will forever be scrapping around for 4th place. And let’s not forget that Man City, with their financial resources, won’t be shit forever and it looks as if Liverpool too will get a big cash injection. I’m with Wenger but a dose of realism would be welcomed.

    This team is not competitive. Why build a big stadium and have a shit team stop making excuses its getting stupid. Arsene shouldnt be sacked but he dont know best. Arsenal PR people are watching the blogs to try and counter negative comments.

    Dear Mr kronke please take control and bring back standards to the club. We used to play shit football but teams feared us because we were hard to beat. Then we had a skilful team put together with some cheap stars and an old defence and teams feared us. In 2006 we decided to pay off our mortgage on our new place we would become a creche a give young teenagers million pound contracts in the hope they might be good but they either ask for more money or leave for more ambitious clubs. Mr Kronke you are a billionaire so you must not like accepting second best and not getting value for money! Being happy to finish fourth every year for 2grand a ticket is shocking and some of our players are lucky to be playing football at this level. We were considered london best club now we are surestart please take control of our club and be demanding like a true winner should be not making excuses and sell Ade please do not give RVP a pay rise for doing nothing…

    It is pointless to talk about this,I think the things are very clear here.No result-you go or change your views and politics,it is simple as that,ARSENAL IS NO JUST ONE MAN(AW),WE ARE ALL ARSENAL

    If Wenger goes then… Cesc goes and any other decent players we have… Try engaging your brain before you start writing contentious garbage.

    I think most of you are missing the point. Who cares how much money United spend on players, what matters is winning. The premier league trophy does say 2007/2008 Manchester United (but they spent a lot of money so Arsenal should have won it really).

    If we want to compete Wenger has to spend ‘our’ money on a few new decent signings. Or we’ll be sitting hear next year saying 5 years and still no trophies.
