2015 was one of the best chances for Arsenal to get hold of the Premier League title. Still, the gunners had to settle for a disappointing second place. Entering a new season with no major changes in their squad Arsenal do appear confident however lack the determination of getting hold of the premier league title.
This performance doesn’t only put question marks on the team but also puts Arsene Wenger’s future in quite a danger. No doubt Wenger is one of the top most managers in English Premier League. However, his stubbornness is something which may be standing in between Arsenal and their dream of winning the European Premier League title for the 14th time.
We evaluate and present 5 major reasons why Arsene Wenger must be sacked as the manager of Arsenal:
- He has Lost His Eye For Players
Arsene Wenger in his tenure as Arsenal’s manager has made some great signings. One cannot disagree that Mesut Ozil, Peter Cech and Alexis Sanchez proved to be a great asset for the team. However, these players were already on top and were available to sign. What hinders Arsenal’s growth is Wenger’s obsession to find out the hidden gem. He focuses more on getting hold of unknown superstars hoping to get the best out of them.
However, his recent signings such as Gabriel, Andre Santos and Park Chu-Young are all flops. The man has lost his eye for detail and should focus more on quality over the gamble.
- Last Season We Saw Players Didn’t Seem to Believe in Him
This is one of the factors which definitely should worry the club. Last year in a crucial encounter against Manchester United and then with Swansea players appeared cold and did not at all seemed bothered.
It is the manager who has to fire up his squad and boost them to achieve something. However, in Arsenal, we saw a player losing faith in their manager which was worrying. Seems like a reason to leave?
- Doesn’t Seem to Recognise or Embrace the Weakness
During a highly competitive league such as Premier League, it is required to get hold of your mistakes as well as try and work on them. However, Wenger has a whole different viewpoint to each time Arsenal face heavy defeat. He doesn’t seem to question his players over their poor performance and instead of slamming them tends to find an alternate answer to same.
You will notice even after defeats he seems very relaxed and gives out deluded quotes such as ‘we gave everything’ or ‘we were playing with our handbrakes on’. Why can’t you just accept a bad performance?
- His Tactics Just Wouldn’t Change
We still cannot understand why does Wenger love his 4-2-3-1 formation so much. You wouldn’t see much of a variation in this formation even against teams on which having an alternate formation can help capitalise.
He still doesn’t understand that one needs to give up a part of their possession for being dominant in bigger games. Arsenal never seems to have a plan B with them, and much of their game playing tactics are understood by the opposition, which allows them to nick points easily.
- The man Just Never Learns
One can easily predict an Arsenal season before it even begins. Most of the prime concerns aren’t addressed during summer before a healthy start would be seen to fall apart through injuries and would result in their loss.
Wenger has proven to be far more ignorant in terms of his mistakes whether it is his tactical mistake or sticking to the wrong set of players.
In the end, it always seems like someone else’s fault, and he just wouldn’t admit to getting it wrong. The man doesn’t agree to spend more on a quality player, and as a result, these players make the opposition even stronger.
Don’t You think it is high time that Arsenal should let the man go?
