Should We Cut Our Losses?

Let us have it right, we are shite. 

But the truth is we shouldn't be. 

In my very, very, very, very honest opinion we've got the third best squad in the league but the truth is at this rate we'll be lucky to finish in the top four.

We're in the biggest battle since The Battle of Hastings to get into one of those sought after Champions League places.

At the moment I have to hold my hands up and say I've as much confidence of Arsenal Football Club achieving that as I have marrying that lovely little treacle Laura Woods. 

What a little treacle she is.

Talking of treacle watching Arsenal these days is like watching the players treading through the stuff. Sticky and stuck. Stuck as in they're stuck in a rut and sticky as in it's a sticky situation.

And Emery is definitely in a sticky situation if you ask me. 

This time last year the Spaniard was orchestrating us through an unbeaten run that had quite a few of us thinking that Arsenal were on the verge of winning the lot (slight exaggeration). Including the 2019 Cricket World Cup and even X Factor.

Twelve months on and it's all changed. The feel good factor (that some felt) of 'change' has gone and the 'patience' of many fans has worn thin. Many have had enough and want him gone. 

Now I've never been one to dig out a manager to be honest. 

I like to get behind them and give them time but if I'm being straight with myself (and from time to time I like to tell myself the truth and not keep blagging) I'm one of those as well who feel that he isn't the right man for the job.

Following Arsene Wenger into Arsenal was one of the biggest jobs in world football. Maybe even the universe as it happens and it's becoming more and more evident that he isn't up to it.

I feel as bad as Micheal Jackson Bad for writing this because I wanted him to do well and always said he'd need 18-24 months to truly put his stamp on the club but in the time he's been at Arsenal can any of us truly say he's improved us in any way?

Even a tiny teeny weeny bit?

I actually think we've gone backwards and we should be doing so much better with the players that we have. 

I'm not going to go all in-depth on the reasons why I think we need to cut our losses because I have a slight Irish Whiskey hangover (and Irish whiskey is better than Scotch whisky by the way) and I can't be arsed to be honest but I'll just be blunt.

I don't think he's the right man.

There is plenty of time left this season for someone else to come in and really make this squad live up to it's potential because at the moment it's concerning that that potential could go to waste.

Keep It Goonerish........
