Some are now starting to lay the blame at individual players (which I find unfair) and some are even starting to turn on the previously untouchable Arsene Wenger.
Now don't get me wrong. Our manager is a very stubborn man, especially in his beliefs. It could well be his stubborn nature that costs us this season.
It's obvious that the squad is thin in numbers. Its full of quality, but short in reserve. This should have been addressed by Wenger, but wasn't, and we're paying for it now.
Now, us Gooners have high expectation levels and in my eyes, this is down to one man. Arsene Wenger. The man has revolutionised our club. He has turned us from a mid-table club, "boring boring Arsenal" into a club who have a brand new stadium, an exciting squad, and world reowned attacking football.
I'm not prepared to jump on his back. The man has done too much for our club to do this. I admit, it's been very very hard to watch our rivals win titles and cups while we "seem" to have been left behind. But Wenger is the man to lead Arsenal into what could be the most successful period for Arsenal ever.
Who else could have dealt with the financial restrictions when building the new stadium like Wenger did? I doubt very much Fergie or Mourinho could have. Thats why he's class.
It's easy to throw money around to get what we want. It worked for Chelsea and United, and now because of the hard work Wenger has put in, in the last few years, Wenger has money to spend.
Whether he uses it is difficult to say. I think he needs to add a couple of faces to the squad, but doesn't need to throw money around for the sake of it.
Fergie and Mourinho need hundreds of millions to spend to be successful. There is no way had they been at the helm at Arsenal in the last few years they would still be at the club.
Thats why I'm prepared to wait as long as possible for Wenger to get it right. He is owed that. Its been 3 long years since our last trophy, a long time I know to be patient. But we're almost there. Wenger will sign players at the right price and who are right for Arsenal.
We may or may not win a trophy this season. If we don't I'm still backing Wenger, because I know it will be the last season we go trophy'less for a long time.
Keep it Goonerish......
