John Cross: Arsenal need new direction and a new director!
We all saw the game last night including my disappointing comments on another blog, I think I have for once lost the plot but was I the only one?
I don’t want to talk about the game or the previous one for that matter it was let’s honestly say total shambles! It pains me to say we are not good enough any more for the so called 4th spot trophy if you ever believed it was just that. Yesterday’s performance proved this to me as I have believed the team can lift themselves as they did in so few games this season.
So as usual we got dumped out of two cups in a matter of days and there is not a great deal you can argue about that. The worst thought that is my head right now that it keeps on happening season after season after season and yet after the Blackburn defeat we thought response was required and to our doom and gloom it never happened. First half was awful yet again and in the second as hard as we tried we were no match for Bayern Munich.
I cam home today after work sat down and snooped about on the net for a while and I found an interesting video on Life’s a Pitch about where do Arsenal go from here. It makes me sad we have to come to these sort of conclusions and it has be as drastic but my heart tells me perhaps John Cross is right. As much as I love and respect Wenger perhaps he needs to go because it seems he can’t take the pressure anymore. We have no direction on the pitch, decision making is bad, there is no tactical plan
I know his press conference was not the kindest one and respectful for that matter on Monday, however I do believe the man should handle him self in a better way to what he did. He had Arteta sitting next to him and he allowed the those media junkies to get on top of him, surely that is not a great example for one of your players and the whole team.
I don’t really know what to make of it all but there are serious signs that things weren’t taken seriously at the time where they should have been, we only bought a player to replace injured Gibbs, our front line is lacking that extra umph and our back line is as good as none existent! We panic at the back and we panic badly this is certainly the worst team we have ever seen under Arsene!
The next few weeks are crucial starting against Villa on Saturday and I sincerely hope Arsene can turn it around but something tells me deep down that it will never happen. I honestly hope I’m wrong there is nothing worst for your football club to loose his best manager ever!
