Public Crucifixion

I have pretty much have had enough of Arsenals slow death and exit out of various competitions in the last few weeks. The excrutiation on Arsenes face yesterday (on national terrestrial tv) was unbearable to watch.

He looks older to me, and more tortured. He defends his players to the point where he is fast becoming indefensible himself. Even the most die-hard Gooner was demanding a player with a bit of hunger yesterday afternoon. A player who would just try one FFS…

It only remains for me (the non-supporter on the sidelines) to sit and wonder where they would be with an efficient table football back four like in the old days. Once devastating on the break themselves, Arsenal now seem so often pitifully scythed through when the ball is on the other foot.

It is not my business to call for the managers head on a plate, or a spike or anything else. I really hope that Wenger can find a way to inject the Gunners quality that seems lacking. I heard their current playing style described as Pinball Football; that seems a good a way as putting it as any.

  1. ” to sit and wonder where they would be with an efficient table football back four like in the old days. ”

    What like Stoke’s?

    Wemberlee. Wemberlee……..etc!

  2. To call Stoke a football team is an insult to the game They’re like Wimbledon of the 90s, if crazy is replaced by nasty

  3. Ha! Ha! You must be another cult of Wenger Arsenal fan. Try and make your own judgement based on what you see and not what you read and hear!

  4. Brighton fan who despaired at Micky Adams Pulis style management. When we played Stoke I was more worried about injuries than the score
