Invincibles To Invisibles – Arsenal Demise Met With Fan Fury

Under the reign of Arsene Wenger, Arsenal Football Club have gone from undefeated Premier League champions in the 2003/’04 season, to losing five of their last nine competitive fixtures in all campaigns. Including embarrassing back to back 5-1 defeats to Bayern Munich in the Champions League and last nights 3-0 defeat to Crystal Palace in the Premier League surely enough conformation that the club is in a state of  complete anarchy.

The question that looms over North London is that:
“Is it time for Arsene Wenger to leave the club before his reputation is completely tarnished?”  

Following Monday night’s defeat, their fourth consecutive one away from home, the Gunners see themselves in sixth place in the league. This means they’re closer to 16th positioned Palace (20 points) than to leaders Chelsea (21 points).

Arsenal see themselves seven points behind Manchester City in the sought-after fourth position, however going on recent form and the complete lack of appetite shown from the players, it seems feasible that they could even finish outside the top six.

There is simply no excuse for how poor the Arsenal team have been of late and the harsh reality for Gunners supporters is that similar dejected performances have become an all-too- regular occurrence for the prestigious club.

Understandably, the club’s fans have vented their frustration on many platforms, chanting to the players: “You’re not fit to wear the shirt”.

A minority of supporters were also recorded voicing their opinions to the players on the team bus outside Selhurst Park.

There is an overwhelmingly toxic atmosphere around the club at the moment and it looks increasingly likely that Arsene Wenger’s reign will be coming to an abrupt end, despite the possibility of a contract renewal on the table for the Frenchman.

Speaking after the terrible 3-0 defeat to Crystal Palaces, the dejected Frenchman said:

“I have managed over 1100 games for Arsenal Football Club and we are not used to losing like that. It’s a big worry. I am disappointed and determined to put things right”.

It would be a sad way for Wenger to end his tenure at the Emirates, however it looks as if he is being met with an ultimatum in which the only solution is to leave by mutual consent as a sign of respect for the manager who has done so much for the famous North London club.
