It’s got to the point now where everyone has had enough. It’s the same old story and Arsene Wenger is getting all the flak – but what about the board?
We have a board which is old and stagnant, and has been ever since David Dein was ousted back in 2007. The only man on the board who actually had any football knowledge (and passion for success) hasn’t been at the club for the last 10 years and he’s never been replaced.
Arsene Wenger has been taking a lot of shit recently, some of it justified and some of it not. Now don’t get me wrong, Arsene Wenger is a stubborn man who makes mistakes but at the same time there’s no getting away from the fact that he is a talented coach, excellent manager and well respected man across European football.
And while Arsene has been getting criticised left, right and centre, no-one has said anything about the board. Currently the combination of Silent Stan Kroenke, unambitious board and Arsene Wenger is resulting in consistent Top 4 finishes with no real intention of winning either the Premier League or Champions League. We do enough to do well, but nothing to suggest we can go to the next level.
People have been calling for Arsene Wenger to leave but for me, especially after what he has done for the club, that’s the completely wrong solution. The real solution is getting Stan Kroenke out. This man is killing out club.
He sits there in America somewhere making a tidy profit every season, with completely no interest in Arsenal achieving any success. There’s only one man who desperately wants Arsenal to win things and that’s Arsene.
But as long as Stan Kroenke is at the club nothing will change. Arsene Wenger is basically told to get into the Top 4 every year – and he achieves that. Now what we all want is to go to the next level right? Well that comes from the owners and board.
Arsene Wenger deserves his chance under new ownership. Arsene deserves a season or two with Arsenal under an owner who is ambitious, forward-thinking and wants success.
IF after that Arsene doesn’t win the Premier League then that would be the fairest time to let the man go.
But under Stan Kroenke do you think a change in manager would make a blind bit of notice?
You are delusional if you think that getting rid of Arsene Wenger is the answer – the real solution is getting rid of the terminal disease at the club and it’s name is Stan Kroenke.
