Arsenal at the Edge – We’re Here, So Buckle Up

Arsenal are at that point everyone loves to talk about in the future. You know the one!

“I remember back in 2012 when we were sitting 5 points off 4th and everyone was so negative, the team was under-performing, everyone wanted Wenger out and it looked like there was no way forward, then…”

How does this end? I don’t know, you don’t know. People that are so-called experts have been calling for AFC’s demise year after year since 07, so they surely don’t know.

The one thing that is glaringly obvious is that what happens in the next 3 weeks in the league and in the month of January will send Arsenal teetering over the edge into an abyss that we’ve not seen in 16+ years since Wenger’s arrival or it’ll be a comeback that by now everyone should be used to as it’s happened on various occasions.

I would love to sit here and say that Arsenal will gel in time and get reinforcements in January and everything will be perfect, but I just don’t know anymore. I don’t know if it’s Wenger that’s gotten senile. I don’t know if it’s the board that’s kept funds from him all these years. We don’t know if the players all of us think are great just aren’t so great. Arsenal are at a crossroads where big teams do one thing; FIX the problems! But alas this is Arsenal and we’ve not shown that the glaring problems will be addressed at any point.

This lackadaisical attitude of just believing in AW being enough to get through these times has eroded into resentment. There is a segment of the fan-base that HATES the boss. The lot of us all seem to be in agreement over one thing though, at the very least, and that’s the opinion that Kroenke needs to sell his shares as he’s doing nothing for the club at present time.

Arsenal have a beautiful stadium, a wonderful youth set-up, up and coming talent with experience and top-notch talent sprinkled in, but it isn’t enough! Arsenal simply need more…desire, urgency, motivation, bodies, talent, etc. take your pick, it’s all needed. Nothing less than a swift kick in the arse, a sharp up-turn in performances, and solid investments in January will do. If those things don’t happen, buckle up, because between the tarnished supporters, the media and the usually docile supporters that will eventually turn, it’s going to be a bumpy ride down into the abyss…no true Gooner wants that.

So here’s to hoping the club act as they should and the players react as they CAN…next up Brom. Get it going lads!
