Are Spurs Closer to Winning the League than Arsenal?
For years now, Arsenal fans have been calling for the removal of Arsene Wenger as the Arsenal manager. Wenger has helped Arsenal stamp their successful past as one of the biggest clubs in world football. It all seems like a lifetime ago, it’s been almost 14 years since Arsenal last won the premier league. Perhaps it’s getting to a point where Wenger is going to tarnish his legacy. Is Wenger holding Arsenal back? They have a world class stadium and they are one of the richest clubs in the world. Arsenal should be competing for the League and Champions League every year.
In today’s game fans give out that there is no loyalty from players in Football. The clubs also have little loyalty when results aren’t going right for managers or if a club can profit massively off a sale of a player. The Arsenal board have been more than loyal to Wenger. It can be said that if it was any other ‘big club’ the Frenchman would have been sacked at least 8 years ago. For instance, Chelsea weren’t afraid to sack Ranieri.
Reports say Wenger is going to ink his name on a two year contract extension. Problem is, I don’t think you would find an Arsenal fan in the world right now that will say he deserves another chance. His players aren’t playing for him and there seems to be no light at the end of the tunnel for him to remain manager in the long term or short term future.
It must be worrying for Arsenal fans that Spurs are looking much more likely to win the League before Arsenal next do. Spurs are a club who seem to be headed in the right direction, without spending 100’s of millions of pounds on players. The problem they face is to hold onto their players.
Perhaps Arsenal need a whole new structure set up. Maybe a sporting director, new coaches etc..
What do you think, is Wenger’s time up?
