It has been a turbulent 2014/15 campaign for Arsenal and their supporters so far.
Saturday’s defeat to Stoke City at the Britannia Stadium was painfully predictable and it could be argued the first half performance was the worst of any under the stewardship of Arsene Wenger.
The viral video that emerged after the game of Wenger being aggressively abused by a section of Arsenal ‘fans’ only deepened the sense of despair around the Emirates Stadium.
But it cannot be argued that Wenger has left the club in a worse position than which he found it with Champions League qualification as regular as clockwork, whilst last night’s convincing 1-4 win over Galatasaray in Turkey reminded everyone of the Frenchman’s record of taking his team through to the knock-out phases.
Arsenal fans continue to look for more however with their greatest frustration the fact Wenger COULD have signed the players to take them to that next level.
The January transfer window has a feel of now or never about it for Arsene Wenger who surely knows by now that he needs to strengthen in key areas in order to challenge and appease those supporters who have started to lose patience.
