I envy your optimism Shane.

Though it is probably is easier to be optimistic when you still believe in Wenger.

Well it is hard to detect after your increasingly AKB-ish posts.

Detimes will probably post something like this and not be joking.

Do you remember the last time you called me an AKB? It was when I suggested that Wenger still commanded enough respect in football to lure big players to the club, even if big players left. And here we are, on the eve of signing Aubameyang, after losing Sanchez. I said this well before Aubameyang was even on the radar.

I'm not bragging because anybody who viewed the situation with a bit of rationality and a bit of balance would've came to the same conclusion, but balance and rationality are alien concepts to you and your ilk. Your opinion on Wenger stems from a genuine dislike of the bloke, which is fair enough, but at least have the decency to explore the idea that someone who doesn't share your hatred of him isn't automatically an AKB.

Shane's not an AKB. He's as tired of Wenger as we all are but he made a very valid point about Wenger in that long post of his a few weeks ago.

Many on here view Wenger as an anachronistic joke but he has more clout in footballing circles than most managers. I wanted him out ten years ago but I admit that his regard among footballers and managers is still high and will probably remain so for the foreseeable future.

The fact that wenger has the ability to pull top players to us and gets a lot of respect helps us in no way. We are still losing to minor teams because he cant manage.

There are AKBs n there are modern day AKBs, shano is the later as he grew up with Wenger almost his entire life (Sm6). You can talk about respecting Robert Mugabe when he’s retired but you can’t talk about respecting Mugabe and when he’s running the country as a tyrant. Wenger is at Arsenal for 22 years so obviously the players want to come to Arsenal have to respect him n his respect among neutral football fans outside Arsenal is as a veteran but nothing close to legendary managers like Arrigo Sacchi or Jupp Heynckes, Wenger is considered a significant underachiever n no neutral football fans take him seriously, that’s the reality.

You're talking nonsense. Shane isn't an AKB, modern or otherwise. Whether you like it not plenty of clubs would be happy with Wenger managing them; we're not because we've had him for years and he's become lazy and unfocused, partly because he's had no pressure from the top. That's the problem with Arsenal, there's so little ambition and that's a foundation for indifference and that's a sickness that's spread through the whole club. Wenger would probably improve if he had someone to answer to but everyone accepts mediocrity, even Wenger to an extent.

Did nobody else get the joke or was it just very unfunny? It's literally a positive note.

Anywho, thanks for your support Hippogunner. It's very refreshing to see someone else with clarity.

I get your jokes even before you post it, so don't have to hide behind hippo, I just wanted to call out all the still remaining AKBs on one thread to check the current state of the AKB caucus n you guess what there are still plenty!!

I don't remember ever calling you an AKB outright. IMO you are not AKB but an AKB-lite or are a bit AKBish, in that you can see Wenger is on a delince and wouldn't mind if Wenger leaves us as soon as possible but you also still have some hope in him to be back on top and have huge respect for the man and will defend him most of us not happy with Wenger maybe go a bit to far.

There is not nothing wrong with your view on Wenger, Shane. At least your view makes sense unlike actual AKBers.

Also us WengOut fans lost repect for Wenger after his countless and obvious lies to the fans and the fact that he backs the current Board and Stan who only care about profits and nothing else.

Exactly, yes Wenger can still attract some top quality players but even if we had best 11 players starting for us, we still wouldn't win the title or teh CL with Wenger in charge because our problems are far depper than just lacking enough quality players.

A good analogy I saw the other regarding our situation with Wenger and the players is that it is like institutional racism in that it more about about the system not the individuals.

I "wouldn't mind" if he left? No I want him sacked mate. As for holding out hope that he'll lead Arsenal back to the top of English football, well that's not true either.

I think you've intentionally watered down my desire to see him leave the club, and built up the sentiment I have toward him, to make your theory about me being AKB-ish seem a bit more credible than it actually is.

Don't get me wrong, I totally get why it would look like I'm an AKB, but I absolutely promise you that it's because we've created a toxicity that does not allow for anything less than full-blooded hostility toward him.

Now you said it shano, you see that's why I like you n although thought you might decide enough is enough n move to Chelsea with Giroud but seems like it's not happening, fair enough, dude.
Back to the topic of AKB, you are spot on, anything less than full-blooded hostility towards Wenger MUST be considered something like backing him. Yes, you are either with him or against him.. there is no fu.cking halfway house here anymore!! So by your own definition as long as you don't support a full-blooded hostility towards the muppet, you are with him n you are a fu.cking disgraceful AKB. (Sm6)
