Life under Wenger in 2018 – A pointless rhyme
From ridiculous to sublime always they say
This year the latter more often the way
Motivating his players for the big ones still seems okay
Other matches who knows which team will turn up on the day
The defensive organisation a shambles, zonal so old
But no work on the defence in training, so we are told
Why not just turn to your right and listen to Bould?
His hair may have gone but his experience is gold
You can no longer tell us the mentality is strong
When the evidence clearly shows us the statement is wrong
You have been here forever and may feel you belong
But when you can’t do your job forever is too long
We bemoan the lack of loyalty in this era of the game
But your loyalty to some players is quite clearly to blame
Sticking with the ‘same old’ you will just get the same
Top coaches select by form and formations and not by the name
This must now be, this long running play’s final act
So please step aside soon to keep your legacy intact
You arrived as a visionary, an indisputable fact
No one shares your vision now, so leave before you are sacked
Passionate fifty-something Arsenal supporter who has been making the journey to N5 regularly since the early 1980s – although his first game was in 1976. Always passionate when talking about The Arsenal, Dave decided to send a guest blog to Gunnersphere in the summer of 2011 and has not stopped writing about the Gunners since.
He set up his own site – 1 Nil Down 2 One Up – in February 2012, which he moved on in 2016 to concentrate on freelance writing and building Gunners Town, which he launched with Paul in 2014.
The objective of GT was to be new and fresh and to give a platform for likeminded passionate Arsenal fans wishing to write about their team. Dave still of course, writes for the site himself and advises the ever-changing writing crew.
