I think its time for all Arsenal supporters to take a deep breath and a step back.
All I seem to be reading on all the blogs is negative comments, derogatory reports about certain players, our manager and players that are linked to us. The Newspapers write the same old critical comments week in week out too and continue to regurgitate old transfer stories just to have something to write, usually negative of course.
Well let me tell you something, Wenger will tell you when we have a new player, you wont have to read it in red top papers, you will hear it from the manager and you will see the player with his Arsenal shirt.
Granted you may never have heard of him but that is something else. I get the impression that a lot of you supporters are turning against our Manager, perhaps you feel that he hasn’t done things quick enough, perhaps he hasn’t spent enough money or he’s brought the wrong player’s but whatever your view on this, Arsene Wenger is our Manager and a mighty fine one in my opinion.
He’s the longest-serving one we have been lucky enough to have had and while you talk about loyalty in players, remember that you couldn’t find a more loyal manager if you tried.
Yes he borders on the eccentric and yes we have seen the ‘Basil Fawlty’ on the touch-line, maybe his interviews are repetitive but what would you say to all those reporters that will probably misquote you as soon as they get back to the office?
I know what I would like to say to them!!
Most of the newspapers print anything they think might sell their comics and we as supporters fall for it every time and start to question our man at the top.
Most supporters have long memories of victories in the past, well they are in the past but Wenger is putting together a team for the future, leaving the past for the history books.
Granted we had some fantastic players but they have gone and we have a team of youngsters now that need our support, they need to feel that you are with them and not against them.
Just because we have gone through a bad patch it doesn’t mean we have to slag them off. Sure were all disappointed, I am probably one of the worst but i have seen the light. I have seen that just because we haven’t won anything for six years it doesn’t mean we have to get on their backs does it?
In fact we have to support harder, make the teams who come to The Emirates know we love our team and we are right behind them regardless of whether we are winning or losing.
Wear that Arsenal shirt in the stands with pride and if you can’t do that try not to give off negative vibes because this team will show you skilful football, they will show you football that after you watch it on the terraces you will want to go home and watch it again on the box.
This team has got the potential to win something, have no doubt and personally I think its going to be next season that this side will get its first of many trophies and we will be on our way again.
Some teams have gone forever waiting for their team to come good and some will probably never come good but Arsenal is not one of them. We were winners, we will be again very soon.
Remember if you can life without the Champions League, yes you know what’s coming don’t you?
Our younger Gooners will have seen us always in this great competition and that’s because of Wenger, the same w****r that some of you are calling ‘Passed It’.
Never will never be passed it, he’s staying unless he’s sacked and that could happen with some of the comments I read.
Remember all of those good times in the past, well a lot of them have been with Wenger at the helm and he will be there again this season and I predict this is the season when all those teams that have spent Millions they can’t afford will be saying, how does that old sod do it with the money he spends?
I’ll tell you how he keeps us up there in the top flight, it’s by having a genuine football brain the passion that it takes to stay a Premier League Manager and the knowledge to keep us in the Champions League every year since it started. We have been in the top four for all those years!
Magic, what else can you say about that achievement and us, well we are lucky to have him, he has such a good eye for spotting talent.
Don’t kid me that you haven’t gone home after a game and thought Christ they were good today, this team can win something?
Arsene Wenger will soon have us back to winning ways, just have a bit of faith, that’s all I ask!
As Thomas Vermaelen says:
Everybody starts from zero and everybody has to start again. You get a new chance and that’s always a good feeling when people give you another chance to win something. The past is behind us and it’s good to look into the future.
That’s what we do now – we start all over again with a new chance and we will go for it this year.
Fellow Gooners, we have to be right behind them too when our Arsenal side starts all over again……
