Confidence maybe low and the scars from the two previous defeats may still be gaping, but we really need to get a grip of ourselves as its gonna be a fight now. We really need to dig deep. It’s no good hiding behind excuses, every game from now until the end of the season is a cup final. The players and the manager need to roll up their sleeves and yes that includes the fans too. According to Wenger they feel the whole world is against them, so we need to turn the Emirates into a fortress and give them 50,000 reasons why they are not alone. We don’t want to give them anymore excuses than what they already have.
We really need a trophy this year, if not, at least a CL final or pushing the title race to the last day. Every year Wenger tells us this squad is ready. He practically tells us the domestic cups are a non priority and throws them every season in order to compete in the two big ones, but we always fall short. Well short. We have to do it this year or Wenger will find that his band of blind faith followers will dwindle more erratically than what they are already.
Football is a sport, it’s all about winning. If it’s not about winning then why on earth do we keep score?? Why do we have league tables and knock out competitions??? Why does the team that comes 1st get those big shiny silver things as a reward and every other club gets naff all. It’s all about medals and trophies. If Wenger is interested in nothing but ‘finances’ and the ‘long term security’ of the club, it’s time he took a job upstairs to help with the finances and long term securities and we get someone in to coach the team who’s hungry for glory. Somebody who at least teaches his players the basics of the age old art of defending…
At the minute Wenger is playing the role of butcher, baker and candlestick maker and it seems to be taking its toll. I remember the other week after Utd had trounced us. In the post match interview Fergie was asked if Rooney’s contract was being sorted and Fergie said he didn’t deal with that side of things. His job is just to deal with details on the pitch and it seems to be working for them. 3 trophies on the bounce well in the race for a 4th, even with the loss of two of their best players last season..
Anyway, moving quickly on. There’s 13 games to go. That’s plenty of time but we can’t afford no more cock ups. Wenger needs to stop pampering these players and put a rocket up their arses. Play the players in their best positions, drop the players who aren’t performing. Almunia, Sagna, Denilson, Theo and Clichy are the best examples. We dont have enough games now for them to ‘find their fitness/confidence’. It’s about the team not the players sensitive souls. Sod them. They are playing shit and costing us points so they have to give way. If they need fitness or whatever, bang them in the reserves until they’ve proved it.
Nobody has a god given right to win anything, but at the same time nobody has the god given right to play in the first team either. Earn your place, that’s why we have big squads nowadays. What does it say to the young players who are playing well, if a 1st teamer spends 3 months out injured, only to walk straight back into the team and plays like hes never played before in his life, making endless mistakes and costing points..
Lets go for it against the Dippers. We need some big performances so lets pick the players that will give us that and not the ones who will make cock ups and then have people making excuses up after the game, saying that they have just returned from injury. It’s getting boring. We have a massive squad, so lets use it..

We have a chance to get some pride back and kick start our season again. Liverpool are in form, we are not, but stats count for nothing out there on the pitch. Denilson is proof of this. Beat the dippers and fingers crossed for a couple of results that go in our favour and all is not lost..
Last chance lads, so go get ’em, restore some pride and take no prisoners…
