Wenger to stay (Calm down) by KSM
So we got knocked out of the FA Cup and the League Cup (does anyone really care about that League Cup?). We are still in the Champions League. Also everyone is saying we are gonna get flogged by Bayern? Really? Is football sooo predictable? Sometime earlier this year everyone thought Man City were gonna win the Premier League…hmmmm how did that work out for them?.
Did anyone expect us to beat Barca at Highbury when Arshavin scored? Did anyone expect us to be in 5th (a measly 4 points from Tottenham at this time of the year?) From what I recall ever since Thierry Henry left every year, EVERYONE has been saying we were gonna drop out of the top 4…HASN’T HAPPENED!!! (And I mean every f**king year!!!) Liverpool on the other hand, no-one thought they were gonna drop out, where are they now?
Our 1st priority should be a Champions League place in the Premier League. Everyone is all “In Arsene We Rust” and “Wenger out”…why? Cause we lost to a team that ‘parked the bus’ almost the entire game? Good on them for working hard and earning the win. I ain’t gonna diss them, I’m just gonna say good stuff on the win…enjoy the Championship!.
Plus that’s less games for us to worry about. Now we concentrate just on the Champions League and Premier League.
A lot of Arsenal fans want to win a cup and are almost completely forgetting that crucial Champions League spot.
What would happen if we come 5th? Half of our stars would leave claiming they wanna “play in the CL” and I put my money on the first player leaving would be Vermaelen. But no, we want a cup rather than a Champions League spot. Yeah and losing half our players and top players not wanting to join us is gonna help us trying to win it next year.
There are 15 other Premier league teams that would literally kill to be in our position right now. To be in the Champions League contention or even near the top 4 (QPR is one clear example) or to have the players we have (Wilshere, AOC and Walcott) and have the players we bought at those price’s (e.g. Cazorla and Giroud both under 20mil).
Consider this, we have Man City and Chelsea spending all this money on players and wages (Eden Hazard just 22 YEARS OLD what is his wage per week? 170,000 Euro). Then there is Man Utd and the only reason why there are getting anywhere in PL is thanks to the FA and RVP (not EVEN gonna go there right now) no not the ‘Football Association’ the ‘Fergie Association’.
Then there is Arsenal. A team with history and consistency. A manager and coach with loyalty. A team playing for each other not for a pay cheque (Man city and QPR) and that’s why, despite all the odds, the media and everyone saying they are gonna fail…they will succeed.
So no to Wenger out, he knows that he is doing. If we win the FA cup (or League Cup), sweet!. If we win the Champions League, even better! But NUMBER ONE priority is top 4 in the Premier League. So that’s why I am not too fussed about the FA cup, even less about the League Cup.
I will be ecstatic if we win the Champions League but if we don’t, meh, I can live with it, try again next season. BUT we can’t do that if we fall out of the top 4. I would happily trade in a FA Cup and a League Cup for 4th place if it came to it and so would many other teams.
If Wenger were to quit today Man City, Real Madrid and Barca would be chomping at the bit for him to be their manager, throwing as much money at him as they possibly can.
So calm down. If we are not in the top 4 by the end of the season. Then rage up and rage quit.
Only a fool complains about a job before it’s done.
