Absolutely spot on and the thing that really gets on my c.unt is there’s still some morons out there who insist that Wenger is still the man for the job and the only reason he has turned into the pathetic tactically inept loser he has been for over a DECADE now is because he’s having to work to Kroenke and the boards restrictions.
Absolute nonsense, he f.ucking endorses it. If he wasn’t a pathological liar to the contrary and insisting the club is ambitious and can actually challenge for titles, I suppose you could understand it. For £8m a year I guess I’d become a greedy moral-less c.unt as well and eventually sell out the very people who supported making me what I once was at this once great football club business.

I mean how many times have you heard him harp on about how the club insists on ‘doing things the right way’ or their ‘values’? Er what f.ucking values? if there’s bigger parasites out there in the business world (and there are many) they’ll struggle to behave like bigger sewer rats than what sit in our boardroom.

Then there’s others who have finally realised that he is in fact way past his useful by date and a shadow of what he once was pre-Dein departure and Kroenke arrival. But they believe what I can only assume is sentimentally that he should instead ‘move up stairs’. Also absolute nonsense because if you are not part of the solution, you are part of the problem and he needs to f.uck off as far away from the club as possible and take that den of c.unts he ‘works’ for with him.

Then and only then may the fans slowly but surely start to finally get some reward and enjoyment back from this club they’ve dedicated most of their lives to. It’s disgraceful what they have done really.

Look, a coin has 2 sides and a thin edge.

One, you are looking at Arsenal FC as a traditional football club your grandpa and papa supported and it is a traditional within your family. You are looking at Arsenal FC as belonging to the Elite or marquee club like Real, Barca, Bayern, Man City, ManU, Chelski, Juventus, PSG, etc.

But we are not, and even during the halcyon days of the French Spine, we are still a 2nd tier European club (in Europe, the equivalent of those EPL yo-yo clubs like West Ham, Sunderland, etc. hovering between promotion and relegation and winning the odd cup here and then). Last season, we should realize that how hard it is to keep Arsenal FC at Top-4 level for 19 consecutive seasons.

It is alternative history to assert that another manager can achieve what Arsene Wenger had done for Arsenal FC without those limited resources and those missteps in transfer market. How do we know that other manager will not make those mis-steps as well?

It is a business cycle - ups and downs.
Liverpool dominated in the 80s ...
Then ManU in the 1990s and 2000s till Mourinho turned up.
Even Mourinho failed to dominate like Alex Ferguson did.

Today, we have Man City, ManU, Chelski, Liverpool and even Tiny Totts who can win the title ... although if Guardiola should get all his pieces in place - money not a problem - then Man City will dominate the 2010s and right into 2020s.

Arsenal FC?
Even with a managerial change, we are still a 2nd tier European club ... like an NFL club, just competitive, now and then make the playoff but never qualify for SuperBowl.

Doubt we will ever win a title with any manager in the next 2 decades as long as Silent Stan is still the owner; and even if Klopp or Guardiola or Ponchettino or Mourinho is the manager.


On the other side, since the formation of Premier League and that the start of multi-billion sterling pounds from Sky Sport, English football clubs is no more but morphed into billion dollars American profession sport business with the bottom-line as the priority.
Arsenal fans are just captive customers with Silent Stan knowing that there are always 60,000 suckers always willing to buy overpriced tickets and merchandises to fatten his wallet.

On the thin edge of probability like even a broken down clock got its time right twice a day, I am always that eternal optimist that Arsene Wenger will finally got his acts together and build a title-winning team from his Youth Project to win the title or CL Cup within 5 years from now, i.e. by 2021/22.
