Arsenal fans must be patient; but Wenger has to deliver now

With the highest ticket prices in world football and only one trophy secured in the last 10 years; it is not difficult to understand why Arsenal fans are growing frustrated at how events are unfolding at the club.

Nevertheless, the recent abuse of Arsene Wenger - a manager who has won three Premier  League titles and consistently kept Arsenal in the top four throughout a difficult period in the club's history - has been sickening to watch from a neutral point of view.


Moving to the Emirates Stadium put the London club in debt and it is this - rather than stubbornness - that prevented Wenger from spending more than £15 million on any player between January 2004 and the dying embers of last season's summer transfer window.

Given the fact that Liverpool - who were able to spend £35 million on Andy Carroll and £17 million on Glen Johnson during this period - dropped out of the Champions League places, it is remarkable that Wenger's side did not follow suit.


Arsenal have since made two marquee signings in Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez. However, it will take some time before they can compete with the star-studded lineups of the likes of Chelsea and Manchester City.

This is the fault of the people in charge of balancing the club's books - and not their manager.


Wenger is responsible for getting the best out of his team and he has given Arsenal stability in the results department during a period in which Arsenal have not  had the financial muscle to fulfill the usual expectations of the grand sporting institution which they are.

Arsenal fans can only morally call for the Frenchman's head if he is given a chance and fails to build a great squad out of the club's improving transfer kitty - or if Arsenal fail to make the top four in any given league season whilst he is attempting to do so.

There can be no more excuses.
