3D2Q: Pertinent Observations on the State Of Arsenal


3D2Q ??

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..?

    The players’ private meeting …. ” We need help from the coaches ….. that won’t happen … we’ll have to do it for ourselves !” Says it all. And who prevents a coach such as Steven Bould having any meaningful input ? Arsene Wenger …. Same as Pat Rice before that. As Manu Petit said after he left …. ” Arsene does not like a shadow over him “

    Steve, I cant believe that any top team would entice a player to join them by sharing confidential information of decisions that had to have been made in the boardroom. Arsenal is a company and I would think that such information would be classed as insider dealing. It also is contrary to the ethics of Arsenal F. C. which has always been held up as an example of an ethical club.

    I do however agree that the players have no confidence in themselves or their team mates. They do indeed at times, look as if they are trying to make an impression on their own. Jack, for instance is repeatedly holding on to the ball too long and trying to dribble past the opposing defence instead of passing.

    The reason has been clear for months and it is not the players fault. They are not being coached properly and Wenger has no idea how to do that. I`ve often wondered why Steve Bould sits stone faced on the sidelines even when Wenger is ranting at him. It has clicked at last and I believe that, having listened to Ray Wilkins commenting on Sky, Bould has no input to the training. He is paid £1m per annum basically to listen to Wenger and carry out his orders. He must know that Wenger`s choices and his tactics are crazy, but since he can`t do anything about it, he may as welll sit stoney faced and pick up his paycheck.
