Season after season, it has been an all too familiar story of heartbreak and gloom for Arsenal. When it seems like the club have taken a step forward, reality steps in and reveal that they have gone two or even three steps backward.
The latest rage among Arsenal fans isn’t a new occurrence, neither is their annually “Wenger out” campaign. We’ve seen it all.
Arsenal has been hailed for keeping Arsene Wenger for many years, while Roman Abramovich has been ridiculed for chopping managers consistently. Yet, the trophy cabinet of both clubs has a huge gap since the past decade.
Gunners legend Thierry Henry admits he is hurting to see Arsene Wenger struggle at the moment, and refused to blame the Frenchman for the team’s recent failures. But he believes his former club should take a cue from Chelsea and let Wenger go.
“The only people who can answer questions about the club’s future are the board. Words beat silence in this situation,” Henry wrote in The Sun.
“There is no set formula. Chelsea win titles by chopping and changing manager when everyone says consistency is key.
“The only right formula is the winning one. I’ve been in these situations when the confidence goes. It is so hard when you are in the middle of it to sort it out. But they must – and quickly.”
To be honest, I want Wenger to stay; it just feels good to watch your most hated rival fail and fail every single season.
