It’s been 5 years, 11 months and 3 days or 2164 days since Arsenal last won a major trophy. That is too long for one of the best teams in the world.
In 3 months, we have gone from saying we will win the quadruple to, in my opinion, fighting for third place. It has been an amazing downfall, and you can only blame one person, Arsene Wenger.
It’s true that Wenger has achieved so much with the club and he has done some great things for the club, but for the past six years, it has been nothing but the same, Wenger produces some new youth players and we finish 4th or 3rd, refusing to spend money when the money is available, and Wenger refusing to try new formations and defensive techniques.
Today’s game against Bolton, who last we got thrashed by Stoke, scored two simple goals off us off of a corner kick. I don’t know where the marking was in those two goals, but every player should be braking their necks to get to the ball. Instead, we have some players following the players run up, seeming to not make an effort. This has been going on for what seems like forever but Wenger refuses to do anything about set pieces.
The 4-2-3-1 formation Wenger is playing is terrible. Van Persie is not a lone striker, Walcott should be involved more, and we shouldn’t have two defensive midfielders. After drawing 0-0 against Sunderland and Blackburn, you would think Wenger would change his formation right? Wrong! Wenger has continued this and we have once out of our last nine games in all competitions.
Some people may say I’m not a real fan if I want Wenger sacked, but you people need to come out and think, what is he going to achieve for the club in the next few years. He has already stated that he will continue his youth policy for next season and it’s not like we don’t have great youth players, it’s we need real leaders and strong players with expierence.
