Piers Morgan calls for Arsenal to divorce Arsene Wenger

With every Arsenal loss comes a platform for Piers Morgan to reiterate his outlandish views on how his favourite football club should be run. No doubt he would have been smiling then, when Wayne Rooney broke free in inevitable fashion to score the winning goal for Manchester United on Saturday evening.

While Arsenal appeared to dominate large portions of the match, they still managed to lose their second successive Premier League game and their third already this season. It is now officially the Gunners' worst start under Wenger; their worst for 32 years.

For Morgan, it was just further evidence that a change of manager is urgently required. In fact he went as far to suggest that those still supporting Wenger were deluded.

"It's a heartbreaking divorce, but divorce it has to be."

Smell the cappuccino 

Speaking to BBC Radio 5 Live, the TV personality stated: "At what point do Arsenal fans wake up, smell the cappuccino and say enough. Arsene, you were magnificent, thank you, but please. We have got to have change."

"Surely the time has come for a change. One FA Cup in 10 years, we have now made the worst start in the league for 32 years, 32 years!

"We're eighth in the table, we haven't got a cat in hell's chance of winning the league and we haven't got a cat in hell's chance, in my view, of winning the Champions League.

"It's a heartbreaking divorce, but divorce it has to be."

His opinion, although a strong one, is gathering followers at a concerning rate of knots in north London; at least concerning for Wenger himself. But the fact remains that Arsenal are now 15 points behind league leaders Chelsea.

Addressing concerns

Arsenal were expected to challenge for the title after spending handsome sums of money in the summer transfer window. Although Alexis Sanchez has proved an excellent acquisition, there are concerns that Wenger failed to address serious issues in his defensive line.

That has cost Arsenal dearly with Nacho Monreal struggling to get to grips with his new role at centre-back. Should Wenger solve the issues in the January transfer window, Arsenal could mount a challenge for fourth place once again, but that won't be enough to satisfy Morgan or his growing contingent of disgruntled Arsenal fans.
