Arsenal Opinion: What On Earth Was That?

By on May 9, 2011

What on earth was that?! That was simply another poor match against a “small” club, this time Stoke City. How many times have we seen this from the Gunners? How many times have we see the team fail when the going gets tough? How many times have we seen the team lose points against teams that they should easily brush aside? Yeah, it’s the sixth season, our sixth straight trophyless season.

I know that our title chances were very, very slim and probably over weeks ago, but there was still a glimmer of hope and a small chance, but of course as has been the scenario for the past 6 seasons, the Gunners blew it. The performance was yet again a disgrace and it displayed the fragilities within the team, especially in defence.

Djourou had a poor, poor game and gets most of the blame for all 3 goals, Walcott was invisible, Arshavin was asleep, etc, etc, etc. Am I the only that wishes that every player should have the same passion as Wilshere? Fine, he loses his head at times, but he’s the most passionate player on the pitch and has a die- hard attitude. I like him and I wish all the players had the same passion and desire, but of course that’s not the case.

Wenger has some serious work and rebuilding to do in the summer, the issues are obvious, but still after 6 years, he still hasn’t rectified them. He needs to loosen up and lose that stubborn attitude of his, enough is enough, the issues are obvious, every fan and person who watches Arsenal can see it, so how on Earth one of the greatest managers in the world can’t? We need men, we need leaders , we need winners, players who would fight to win and for the Gunners. I won’t be jumping on the “Wenger Out” brigade, I still believe he’s the man for the job, but he needs to loosen up and lose that stubborn attitude of his.

Wenger reported has good money to spend, he needs to start using it…. or it will be a 7th trophyless year.

P.S. How about giving it a go on Juventus’s Chiellini? Tough, aggressive and a fighter…. he’ll be perfect for the Gunners.

A short video of what our club is all about:

What do you think? Is Wenger still the right man for the job? Who should he buy? Who should he sell? What are thoughts after the Stoke City match? Please share your opinions.

Cheers and take care,

    Wenger is one of the most brilliant coaches around no doubt. But on this current squad he gets it all wrong. From indifferent attitude of Ashavin when off the ball, jittery Djourou ,to prone error Almunia, inconsistent Diaby,slow motion and senseless tackles of Song,egoistic Bendtner,to average Charmak,pass prime rosicky,comedian Eboue and useless Denilson etc.Arsenal and Arsen needs to do massive overhauling to win trophy.This current squad can not win anything and will never in the next ten years. Barcelona with the best academy in the world, still appreciates players outside the academy to fill identified holes. We should stop pretending that every product of our academy must play in arsenal and also stop wasting money and attention scooping the universe for under aged talents. Football is about competition let the academy products or any youth player rise to justify his position in the team or flog him out. Let Arsene and the players get over the little success of beating Man U. Barca etc and see football every match as a battle to win. The accumulation of won battles turns to war won.

    Arsene has to include overrated English
    players in his team because the paroch
    ial English press says so,so Walcott is
    definitely not a world class player,a rubbish typical English first touch and no clue player,Wilshere to big headed
    and overrated but the same English press rates
    him so highly,Ramsey another player way
    to overrated as yesterday,s match proved
    losing possession while trying to be Cesc or Nasri,no comparison whatsoever
    to those two classy foreign players?

    Thank you both for commenting, I believe Wenger is still the man for the job, but he needs to get rid of his stubborn attitude and accept that his philosophy and to finally start rectifying the obvious issues in the squad,

    I believe that Wishere is top-class, maybe yes, he’s a tad over-rated by the media, but he is an excellent player nonetheless who plays with a lot of passion and heart. If we had a team with the same passion as Wilshere’s than the Gunners have won the title by now.

    Cheers and take care everyone,
