Why Wenger will shut you up… again !!
December 6, 2012
I think the time has come to post a measured response to the Wenger bashers, who are out in force at present…. let me start by saying that I don’t blame a lot of you for losing the faith, this is easily the worst period in the Wenger era.
However, there is hope.
7 years ago, there was a similar split up north with the Manchester United fans, Chelsea had won two titles in a row and previous to that Arsenal had won the title by going a season unbeaten – the weak wanted Fergie out, the strong of mind kept the faith and have been duly rewarded ever since.
Wenger today, is the roughly the same age as Fergie was when the Manc fans lost the faith – too old, lost the plot, not got it anymore… you know the rhetoric.
Greatness never dies, it may tone itself down here or there, but true greatness is always there lurking in the background.
You know where I am going with this so I won’t labour the point I am trying to make. Moving on, what is so clearly evident for the first time in years is we have a very weak squad, some of you may scream this has been the case for years but I would disagree, we had the players in the past but injuries and rotten luck robbed us. This time it’s different as we are being comprehensively beaten by smaller clubs and hanging on in there with bigger clubs, just.
Our game has no fluidity whatsoever – the very epicenter of Wengerball.
Bottom line? We need 3 big time players.
A centre back who is rough tough and does not care about breaking bones. The lad from Montpellier Yanga Mwbia? Has to be the man.
A central midfield bodyguard for Cazorla and Co. A beast who takes no prisoners, gets a terrible disciplinary record, but can do the job of hurting players who think they can stop our attack minded players from doing their thing. At the moment it’s just way too easy to take control of our midfield by flooding it with nasty winkers. We need our own, and the bigger the better. I have a name… maybe you have heard it before… M’Vila?
Finally we need an electric super charged pace filled centre forward to compete with Giroud, a player who will be utterly useless for 88 minuted but will score a thunderbolt curler from the edge of the box in the last minute to win the game and get the fans pumped! I know this guy does not fill many of you with joy but I think the man is Demba Ba.
There it is, quite simply we need a new dynamic, as the current set-up is not up to it, we started well early in the season but we can now see that it was just papering over the cracks as we needed at least 5 top class players in the summer.
Why am I confident Wenger will shut you up and actually spend this January?
Simple, you may think he is stupid…. but it’s hard to get the big picture when you have such a small screen.
He is no fool, he is nothing of the kind, very stubborn, but no fool.
