Oh wow, jeez, all I’ve got this morning is a petition to free Luis Suarez from his contract at Liverpool. Yep, social media has got to the point where all it needs to do is fart and it gains press coverage. Someone has set up a campaign, which I’m sure is a joke, to free Luis ‘I just signed a £200k a week deal’ Suarez from his Liverpool hell.
What a laugh eh? I hate petitions when they’re about things that are totally unimportant. What is it ever going to do in football.
So a couple or days on from our horror showing at Stoke and more bad news piled on as Spurs beat the tragically broken Cardiff. 6 points now lie between us and them, so we really do need to turn it on against them in a fee weeks, because the top four crush isn’t a good look for a team that has dominated so much of the season.
Today I’ll talk about the manager and the concern over his new contract. He might not sign. He didn’t sign when he absolutely could have a few months ago, now we’re a few games into the collapse, the jitters have set in amongst some fans and most likely, the people at the club. Rumours are the manager might not feel comfortable at interference from the club. He might see where we’re heading as the club looks to modernise and he might realise there will most likely be an assault on his control over the duration of the next three years as the club readies an infrastructure to secure Arsenal for the next ten years.
There’s always a result in the season that comes with a heavy match report. Not because I don’t have an opinion, but because the situation totally flatlines me. Yesterday, I didn’t expect to lose. I didn’t expect to see a squad fighting for the title turn up and give nothing. I didn’t expect Stoke to be the team who would kill our season.
Yesterday was a surprise, but when you add up all the failings of the manager over the past year, it really shouldn’t have been such a big one.
