Should Wenger begin to feel the pressure if he doesn’t win a trophy again next season? I think the problem is that Wenger thinks he is unsackable at Arsenal, and I think he is right. There is no way would the tight ass money mad members of our board really sack the man that has made them more money then any other manager in our history.
Wenger must be a chairman’s dream. He hardly spends big money, sells the best players and makes a profit for the club ever year. What more could the board want? Personally, I think that Wenger and the board are happy to keep going they way we have been since 2005; not winning anything and just making it into the Champions League while they sit back and watch the money rolling in.
Wenger has not won anything at Arsenal since 2005. Jens Lehmann recently said that if Wenger were manager of a big club in Germany he would have been sacked by now. And think if Real Madrid or Barcelona went that amount of time without winning anything, do you think they would stand by their manager? I doubt it very much! Look at Chelsea, Grant has finished 2nd in the league and reached a Champions League Final but still there is doubt over his future? It’s the same with Rafa at Liverpool. He’s been to two Champions League Finals and won the FA Cup, but, yet, his job is on the line. Why is Wenger so safe at Arsenal? How long do we allow this to continue? Every summer it’s the same thing.
The Arsenal Summer Diary Since 2005:
Wenger makes a statement saying, “ I want to bring in 2 or 3 world class players “ (Maybe this is just a plot to make you renewal season tickets for the following season). We are then linked with some great players like Ribery, Babel. Robinho all summer only for them to sign for somebody else (Now Nasri & Ben Arfa) and end up signing kids and cheap 2nd rate players from Africa or the French lower league. Our best players are linked with a move away all summer, Vieira, Henry (now Cesc, Hleb, and Adebayor). We lose a few players on a free Bosman transfer or just give them away… Pires, Edu, Campbell, Wiltord, Cole, and now Flamini. Its becoming so predictable.
No doubt the other clubs like Spurs Liverpool United and Chelsea will all go out and invest in brings better players to the club and sign some talented world class players as us goners sit around praying that the dream of signing a player like Robinho comes true.
Its now or never for Wenger. If, next season, we don’t win anything, I will be calling for his head!! You may ask who is a possible replacement… how about Slaven Bilic with Tony Adams? Maybe a new face with fresh ideas is just what we need?
