  1. Specialist in Failure   •  

    Sorry but Mourinho is right. This fool is a specialist in failure. But as you will see below- that is exaclty right because that is exaclty how Wenger has manufactured everything.

    I said 2 up front. Not 3. Drop Giroud or Alexis back and leave 2 up front once you realised you lost the midfield.

    What did he do to neutralise the tight midfiled pack of Gerrard, Coutinho, Lucas and Lallana?

    Why play the Ox. Came off injured. Suicidal.

    Wenger has killed Jack’s career now he is killing the Ox and Walcott’s career.

    How do you give them a gift in the last minute and to Skrtl of all people. Why didn’t Chambers go to him after Monreal pointed him out as a danger and why did Gibbs leave his line.

    I have said it for years. AW coaches Beach Football teams.

    Where was the steel at the back.

    Where were the fast counter attacks.

    Where was the midfield general?

    To say we still had scars from last year is just really weak? What are these players? Babies. Why was not the response to inflict double damage to them. Instead my poor players were scarred from last year. Is this guy serious. I know you should encourage and protect players but this is just PR bubbles. Stop this psychotic PR rubbish.

    Yes we are building a new stadium and we can’t buy players but look we do so well- type of rubbish.

    Firstly, whether the club is building a new stadium or has or has no money is none of Wenger’s business. Your job is to coach/manage a Championship winning team.

    Or this beauty. We showed mental strength today. Or, We need to defend better. Or how about this one, Ozil is out. We do not know for how long. We are waiting on tests.

    Six months later when all is lost… we all cheer because Ozil, Jack and Diaby are back. Yes they are back but the war is over.

    Sxzxsxny is too young. Great keeper for his age but behind Courtois and Degea.

    Debuchy – great buy. Some steel.

    Per. Sorry but should be third or fourth pick on the reserve bench.

    Koscielny – Injured again. Surprise surprise.

    Gibbs. He is no Ashley Cole. Needs a kick up the bum.

    Chambers. A 21 year old holding up the whole Arsenal defence. Wow what a smart move that is?

    Flamini. Arteta. Please. Should be third or fourth choice. Same with Arteta. Where is the DM general?

    Meanwhile Alex Song is playing great for West Ham. And we bring back Coquelin from Charlton. What a genius?

    And Fab is playing for Chelsea. Another great buy from Mourinho. Hope you win the League Fab!

    We don’t a DM general one because Wenger only wants midfield midgets. Clone after clone.

    Small psudo attacking midfielders. A whole team of them and then we wonder there is no balance.

    Bit like building a car with nice leather seats but no engine. If you look closely at Rolls Royce and Bentley they have the luxury but beasts of engines underneath.

    The Ox. Great but injured again. Thanks Wenger. Why play him yesterday. Oh, sorry I forgot everyone is injured.
    Jack. Great but injured again. Thanks Wenger.
    Rambo. Rubbish. The Ox. Injured again. Thanks Wenger.
    Walcott. Injured again. Thanks Wenger. Blame it on England.

    Alexis. How many times I can around in a circle. And again.

    Santi. How many times can I run around in a circle. Watch me get knocked off the ball. Again.

    Wellbeck. Has not shown the feather or first touch to really excel.

    Giroud. Like Arsenal. All great against QPR, Leicester and WBA. But disappears when it really matters.

    Look at our results year after year against the top 7. LLLLLLDDLLDWLLLWDWLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL

    Or something like that. basically a line full of losses.

    I am not even disappointed anymore. I just want change.

    Change from the incessant injuries that plague us, the tactical naivety, the naivety over subsitutions, no cohesiveness, no balance, no heart and no steel, the constant manufactured PR crap, resting on mediocrity, blaming poor perfomrmance on the move to the Emirates, and most of all stale, insipid, cowardly displays of football.

    Mourinho was dead right. Wenger is a Specialist in Failure. A good CEO would have fired Wenger after the 4-4 Newcastel after we were up 0-4. Now that is what I call specialist in failure.

    This 1-2 and draw 2-2 in the 97th minute against ten men was a just a yearning to get back to the highs of specialising in failure.

    The thing is that this speicalisation in failure is actually tragedy. It keeps fans in state of frenzy, in hope, despair, and love. We have have an inverse failure. the nail-biting finsih to see if we can get 4th spot.

    Just wait. There will be many more special failures this season. They are all scripted by Wenger.

    If only we could buy a good player. if only the team would gel. I only Ozil was playing. If only, if only. If only we could buy someone in January. The soap opera continues. The PR bubbles get manufactured with greater care than the tactics of the team.

    We are all caught in the tragedy. What is a tragedy and why is it the most gripping emotion to watch as a fan. Because we hope and beleive that the great Arsenal can somehow turn into the Invincibles at any moment but at the same time we also know that we will be demoralised.

    Wenger knows this. He may not know much else but he is a master of tragedy and a master of PR. He manufactures this. He through his ineptness and stupidity put the team on the back foot against 10 men to lose in a cowardly manner again. The hero was wounded at Anfield last year. Let’s feel sorry for the wounded coward who was once a psuedo hero.

    When will people realise this Wenger is really a Clousseau.

    Oh. Yes I forgot. of course we will play scintillating football against QPR and win handsomely and maybe even beat Monaco. Then everything is alright in the tragedy. We get a brief respite, We ask ourselves could it really be. Could the hero really overcome the monsters and be victorious.

    There is only one Arsene Wenger is the chant. How could Arsenal fans be so ill mannered to question what this great man has done for the club.

    Then we lose and back again to the PR machine. We have money. But, I do not need anybody. The transfer market is difficult. Not sure why other billionaire owners don’t have problems with the transfer market.

    Enough of that. I will return to reading Pep’s latest book and dream what it would be like to have a proper coach. Not a bumbling Clousseau who in reality bumbled and stumbled across the Invincibles at a time when all the stars and the universe were lined up perfectly for him.

    Then when the stars left poor Clouseau we went to Stepanovs, Sqillaci, Chamakh and all the others,from the aesthetic to the insipid and cowardly, from fantasy to nightmare … the things tragedies are made of.

    “Arsene Wenger admits Arsenal’s defence has no “leadership” – and players don’t talk to each other”

    It is not only the defence – but the whole team does not have a leader

    But that is Wenger – he has done that on purpose – he is a master Kant

    He has no leader on purpose because a real Leader would stand up to him – so keeps his position safe – how else can you explain so many players leaving – what they say is true – list everyone who has left. No one young has left because they are still on Wenger’s baby bottle. All players who are sure of themselves have left.

    Do you think Fab really wanted to come back to Arsenal. He seems pretty happy with a proper coach. We say the good left because they wanted to chase trophies. Yes. True. But they left because they also did not want to play the Wenger way – the dreaded U shape pass from side to side like crabs, no penetration, no tactical or strategic awareness, no substitutional awareness, naivety, soft centres, lack of willpower, cowardice and so on. Fantasy football can be played in many different ways. Not just crab, crab, crab. Yes unlocking a defence through an intricate exchange of moving triangles right throughout he middle is awesome ala Jack and Giroud last year but that happens every blue moon.

    Even Song is happy with Allardyce.

    Defence. Why have Bould. Do you think Bould questions Wenger?

    Wenger does not want a Leader. Oh sorry yes he does. The old Arteta who will be a yes man. What a stupid signing about 6 years too late.

    Wenger is the specialist in failure – and he knows how to do it. You have a leaderless team to control everyone.

    Do you think Viera or Adams or anyone like that would put up with Wenger’s coaching and managerial style over the last four of five years????

    Wenger does not want a leader!!!! He wants total control and he has even said it. I need control and I could not work in a club that did not give me freedom or dictated transfers to me. He has said it. He has also extorted the fans by saying “be careful what you wish for because if I go things will become worse.” Wenger is the leader. That is why the defence has no leadership. Bring on the French Revolution
