Arsène Wenger Out

It pains me to write this but I think his time at Arsenal is over. Below are the specific reasons why.

Disloyal: How long has he been at our beloved club? 16 months? Are you kidding me? 16 months? My jeans are older than that. Let me elaborate this point: He was here even just for 16 months only because, I repeat, ONLY because he never received ANY offers from anywhere, not even from Real Madrid, PSG or the French national team. Never, no interest nada. Hahahaha and the funny thing is, he IS French.

No vision: Let’s face it. The guy wears glasses; his vision can’t be that good. Did he ever think about building a team, or a youth team through which we could have gotten players year after year? All we do is buy superstars from various teams and hope they click. Where is the academy? Where is the youth? Now all we have is players from different nationalities who try to play together and have no respect or loyalty towards the team. To make matters worse, we have no hope. There are no young players coming through from the youth team because Wenger never cared about building one and we have to rely on buying buying and buying for God knows how long.

Uneducated: I don’t know about you, but I prefer my club’s manager to be educated, at least a bit. What we have here is an illiterate foreigner who can’t speak anything other than French for which I give him no credit because he IS French as I mentioned above. Whenever he talks about numbers and economy, I feel like banging my head against a wall. It’s as if he thinks he has a Masters in Economics you know. Pisses me off.

No improvement: Since he arrived at the club, we haven’t had any progress. We used to qualify for champions league every year before now look what happened. We rarely play in Europe now. We used to play beautiful football which was famous all around the world. All we are now is a team who are tough to beat, like Stoke or something. It’s not like he is the one who raised the bar for success and quality at Arsenal in the first place.

Bad dealer: Arsène Wenger would be the world’s worst Poker player. Have we had any situation when we actually bought a quality player for less $$$? I can’t count the number of times he has overpaid for mediocre players. Remember that one time when he bought that player called Henry for a millions who couldn’t score for almost 10 games? Laughable really. 

Selfish: One of the things I hate about this manager is how he loves just himself. I have longed to hear from him: ‘Arsenal is a club of my life.’, but I will take that wish to my grave as he will never say that. You know those managers who take the job just to make it as a stepping stone? Like AVB? He doesn’t give a shit about Tottnum (only thing I like about him). He just wants to win so that he can make a name for himself and become a pundit like 'Arry one day. Wenger is no different. I wish he loved the club unconditionally and genuinely like all the managers do but I have never felt he has any love for the club.

Unlimited resources: Let’s be honest, with the money and resources he had all along, anybody could have won and stayed at the top. For the past few years, the fact that even with all those unlimited resources he couldn’t win a thing is shameful. He has to go.

Stadium: It’s not like he had to carry a team and manage a budget whilst creating one of the most beautiful stadium in the world.

Where would we be and where would he be without each other: Simple. He’d probably managing some no-mark weird team like Brazil and we’d be one of the biggest, most famous, most profitable clubs in the world right now.

No humor: I like people who have a sense of humor, especially if he is the boss of Arsenal FC. Here are some of the lame quotes of our manager (soon to be ex-manager):

“I tried to watch the Tottenham match on television in my hotel yesterday, but I fell asleep.” (What? So what you slept, who cares?)
“A football team is like a beautiful woman. When you do not tell her, she forgets she is beautiful”. ( As if we ever played beautiful football).
“I think in England you eat too much sugar and meat and not enough vegetables.” (Yeah right !!! Show me one obese person in Britain. )
“If you do not believe you can do it then you have no chance at all.” (Brendan Rodgers says it in a cooler way).
“We do not buy superstars. We make them.” (Blatant lie)

Now you get my point? Did I convince you? Ok how about this? I’d bear with him for years and years to come if he has ever won us a league by going the whole season undefeated.

P.S Food for thought during the transfer season: There's something unique about the Chinese bamboo. Unlike most other plants, Chinese bamboo has a distinct feature of its own. When this bamboo is planted, watered, and nurtured for the whole growing season, it does not grow or develop even a bit. Then, on the next growing season, the farmer must continue to fertilize, water and take care for the bamboo tree and yet nothing happens – it fails to grow just the same.

And as the seasons go in and out, the farmer has to continue caring for the bamboo for four consecutive years. What could really be discouraging is the farmer has nothing substantial to demonstrate for all of his labor in caring and growing the tree.

And then on the fifth year, something incredible happens that you can never see coming.

On the fifth year, the Chinese Bamboo seed grows, and we're not talking about little growth, the bamboo tree shoots up to more than 80 feet in just one growing season! Now, that is astonishing.

Of course you'll wonder: Why was the Bamboo tree inactive for so long? Did it sleep for four years and then just decided to grow dramatically on the fifth? I think the answer is quite obvious if you think about it. The little tree was actually developing itself underground by expanding its root system deep into the ground so that it is tough enough to sustain its inevitable external growth.

Now, had the tree failed to build up a strong and able underground foundation, it would be impossible for it to keep on growing when it is time to flourish. Even if it could, it would fall down like a deck of cards as the foundations were not strong enough to handle its weight.

As Napoleon Hill once said, 'Patience, persistence and perspiration make an unbeatable combination for success.'
