The sacking of Avram Grant at Chelsea did not come as a huge surprise to many. It seemed that he was only going to keep the seat warm for another manager to come in as soon as he was appointed.
The pressure of managing at Chelsea must be huge, baring in mind a multi-billionaire shady Russian is watching your every move!
But that pressure is needed to make the manager succeed. At Arsenal Le Boss doesn't seem to be under that pressure. It seems the board are in the comfort zone and maybe Arsenal are. Peter Hill-Wood lately even stated that it wouldn't be a disaster if we didn't win anything next season.
We haven't won a thing since 2005. That's a long time and it hurts to see Manchester United win the double and even Tottenham winning something. We need to win. We don't have a divine right to win anything but it would be nice!
I'm not saying sack Wenger like Chelsea did to Grant. Far from it. All I'm saying is that we Gooners are tired of watching others win. We want a taste again.
I'm 100% certain that Wenger is the man to bring back the trophies, he has done it in the past. And I believe we could be on the verge of something big at Arsenal, with the right signings.
But we need that pressure back to succeed. Le Boss needs to feel the pressure of going another year without a trophy.
I'm sure it eats Wenger up that we are pot less again. He is a winner. But he hasn't been for three years now. It eats us Gooners up, that's for sure.
People say Chelsea's chairman is ruthless for the sacking of Grant, I think he is an arsehole for the way he has treated him. But whoever is in charge there needs to keep on their toes, or they are out the door.
I'm not panicking about Arsenal, yet, and Arsene Wenger is the best man for the job at Arsenal, that is certain. All I'm saying is that it's hurts to see others winning while we are not, and that needs to change next season. And I'm sure it will with Le Boss at the helm.
We need that pressure back to succeed, and I reckon the taste of coming so close last season will inspire the players this season coming. I hope.
The Chelsea board have gone about things the wrong way. They didn't need to sack Grant, just explain he needs to win next season. The same go's for Le Boss, tell him we need to win next season, put him on his toes. Take the comfort zone away, and that go's for all levels at Arsenal.
Do you think Le Boss should put under more pressure to win things?
Keep it Goonerish.........
