Its time for Wenger to do the right thing and walk away…
Before I start I would like to say that Arsene Wenger has done some fantastic things for Arsenal FC. There is no doubt that Wenger has taken the club forward during his time and we have been lucky enough to have seen some fantastic football. Also off the pitch Wenger has been key to the way the club has been a major success with profits record most years and by moving to a new high class stadium.
But there comes a time when you have to draw a line and say enough is enough.
Arsenal haven’t won anything since 2005, and if anything Wenger is now starting to take the club backwards with his stubbornness.
The problem with Wenger is that he is very out of touch with reality. Only last week he said that this bunch of players are his greatest ever? .. Yes? Even better then the likes of Bergkamp, Vieira, Pires, Adams, Seaman Etc..
Wenger refuses to admit that he was wrong in not spending this summer or last summer when it was clear that we needed strengthening in key areas. GK, CB, DM and a clinical striker.
We all knew 2/3 years ago that we needed a power CB? Where is he?
Most of us were crying out for Gary Cahill in the summer or a player in that style. What happened, we allowed Gallas, Campbell, Silvestre and Senderos to leave for nothing and signed 2 CB with no EPL experience? I would say that Wenger did this on the cheap, But Wenger spent £8m on a CB who has been less then convincing and worst then all the players we allowed to leave for nothing. How many more times are we going to see teams score from free kicks or balls into the box? You cant keep blaming the keeper. Our CB should be dealing with this. ITS THERE JOB!
Wenger in his wisdom decide to not sign a GK this summer and stuck with Almunia as our number 1.. What happened. Almunia as we all knew he would made a massive mistake and he was dropped. To his credit Fabianski has come in and did “OK” but he will make mistakes just like Almunia. Wenger cant keep on switching from 1 dodgy keeper to the next. He has had more then enough time to address this.
We sold Eduardo, a clinical finish but not best suited to our current style of play of 4-5-1 and signed a player in Chamack who works the line well and links play well but he is not an out and out striker.
How many times have we recently seen Chamack thro on goal but stop, and refuse to take a shot? What type of striker doesn’t want to score? Put Drogba, Torres in that same position and they will only have 1 thing on there mind, and that’s hitting the back of the net.
Moving on to tactics…
Wenger has taken us from a successful 4-4-2, (Henry with Bergkamp just off with 2 wide players in Pires,Ljungberg or Overmars. and 2 CM in Vieira,Gilberto, Petit,Flamini)… to the current 4-5-1? WHY? We were winning things the old way? Why change it? And by changing it we are now weaker then before. So why are you sticking with something that’s not working?
Song and Denilson are supposedly in the team to act as a defensive shield, yet neither of them are capable of doing it. Most teams play with 1 DM and are strong. We have 2 and still let in 3 goals at home??? so whats the bloody point?
So overall Wenger has got EVERYTHING wrong over the last 3 years. from not signing the right players. to selling the wrong players and not replacing them.. to the tactics.
Lets face it Arsenal are never going to SACK a manager that makes a load of profit are they? So its time Wenger did the right thing and stepped aside.
We need a fresh start.. The back room staff and manager need to go… We need new ideas because Wenger and his project with kids and cheap signings is NOT working.
Thank you for everything you have done for us Mr Wenger, but its time for change at Arsenal
