Despondency, Disarray and Despair are the key words at present.
Despondency: low spirits from loss of hope or courage; dejection
The team appears to have given up, no drive, no commitment and worst of all no pride.
Disarray: a state of disorganization or untidiness
The team appears to have no idea, no plan and no clue on what the hell they are supposed to be doing.
Despair: the complete loss or absence of hope
The fans appear to have lost the faith.
A crowd of 27,000 tops, sums that up.
I know the weather was awful, but a full contingent of away fans still made it from Manchester.
I know the game was on a Thursday night and was hurriedly rearranged but back in 2001 we had 2 games in 2 days at Highbury and still managed to get 35,000 to both games.
Also, I have two questions that I feel need to be answered:
How low do we have to go before enough is enough?
What was Aubameyang promised to prise him away from Dortmund?
How far do we have to fall before time is called?
The season is basically over, we are finishing 6th (at best) with 2 hopes (None and Bob) of winning the Europa Cup.
The players aren’t playing for the manager, the club or themselves and it’s only going to get worse if things remain as is.
I know a new manager can’t bring in players but he would be able to motivate / put the fear of god into the players to perform or be booted at the end of the season.
We have nothing to lose by replacing Arsene and possibly everything to gain.
Nagelsmann in / Wenger out ?
Check out the GunnersTown team view on the possible replacements.
Following on from this, Aubameyang is one of the top strikers in the world. At Dortmund, he was pretty much guaranteed a team with Champions League football and a team that would be challenging for the title every season.
He then jumps ship mid-season, to a team that is struggling, unlikely to make Champions League or challenge for the title for the foreseeable.
On the face of it, it doesn’t really make much sense, unless….
Has Sven and the new gang, set up the new management team for next season already and has Pierre been let in on the plan, to get him to sign on the dotted..?
