The Champions League is over for Arsenal, and we know we are not going to win the league this season either, but FA Cup glory is just two big wins away. I don’t know about you, but if we win the FA Cup by beating the Northern Oilers and than the Chavs or Spuddies (ideally) in the final, I reckon our season would still have come good. Wenger can then either leave on a decent high or indeed stay on for another year. Both options have their plusses and minuses, but it will be entirely up to him.
There is still every chance that Wenger will have Arsenal finish in the top-four; and who would bet against him? If he wins the FA Cup as well, I reckon 2016-17 will still be regarded as a successful season. It would also lift this team for the coming season and Wenger can add to the squad whilst letting one or two players go who are past their best or do not fit in anymore. From now on, Wenger should bench Alexis and give Perez and Giroud a chance to gel and deliver the goods together. Theo and Danny may also have a strong finish to the season to get us over the line.
Yet some are putting money on the bar table to pay for a sorry plane to fly over the home of football and demanding Wenger to va moosh. Wenger, the human eagle, will soar above it, no doubt, but just have some class ffs. The season is not over and there are plenty of very big games to come as well with both Mancs club still visiting and a NLD game in the league alone. The FA Cup semi-final at Wembley, and then hopefully the final there as well, will also be fantastic football occasions we all live and die for. So let’s get behind the team full-hearted once more, stop the winching and take ourselves a bit less serious again.
