It’s been a rolling trend these days to pinpoint managers with our perspective and lastly making decisions being a virtual plus unknown stakeholder of the club. Looking at the current situation in the league, two bosses are continuously being discussed to be given walking papers, where Alan Pardew must be very much relieved he has utterly turned around his season with spring of victories. The transfer allergy Arsene Wenger or cash splashing Brendan Rodgers, who ideally needs to be shown the exit door?
Last season’s Premier League top scorer, influential striker Luis Suarez left Anfield which had Brendan Rodgers going for quantity over quality signings in the previous transfer window. The Reds have achieved squad depth by signing eight players but disgracefully are only depending on 19-year old mercurial winger Raheem Sterling and injury-prone forward Daniel Sturridge. He was labelled to be the man to bring back Liverpool to the glory days, after securing a place in the Champions League and skintight battle for the Premier League Crown last season. Today, his confident-hit team sit 12th in the league plus no wins in the last four matches. Fire him? Think again. Liverpool saw numerous managers coming in and primarily failed to accomplish their target. The former Swansea man on the other hand, has no experience in the Champions League yet is boldly battling for the finest.
The world best team at the moment Real Madrid, imagine not having Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale, ended up signing Mario Balotelli as replacement. Will they be firing in goals casually, it’s a doubt. Time is the best medicine for The Reds, once Sturridge returns and more additions are made in the upcoming transfer window they will gradually progress. Mamadou Sakho, Jon Flanagan and Suso had inspiring performances too previous season, now they are fighting for fitness. Lesson learnt, Rodgers know he needs to make marquee and top-notch signings in the January window.
Murmurs of sacking the French caretaker are being heard at the Emirates as once again The Gunners could not gun down Manchester United who looked average throughout the match. The Red Devils stumbled once Sir Alex Ferguson gave his significant responsibilities to David Moyes and everyone knew what happened. Similar situations might hit the FA Cup holders as well if their manager leaves. Wenger has assembled a spectacular team who play exciting attacking minded football. Yes, the question is why he is not focused at the back. The fans knew that if any injury occur at the heart of the defense, they have no one to call for help, however the Frenchman overlooked the possibility and is now paying the price. The fans are just malaise with these situations which are not new for them.
So replacing him with a new manager should sort everything out after his single common mistake? It’s never easy to get the best out of a young squad who plays dynamically plus remarkable ball possession. Like it or not, Arsenal have to faced miseries in the medical room with several first team players out, while some nearing return. Koscielny and Olivier Giroud might start in the upcoming premier league matchup, and obviously those porous defense and insipid attack will fade away. Both Frenchmen are bright players for the fantasy premier league squad! Remember, the 65-year old is the only master who has led a team to win an Invisibles Trophy.
Together these managers are criticized for their transfer failures and at times team selection. On the other hand, dismissal at this moment will clearly slump both teams. Five weeks away from the January transfer window, surely these tacticians will sort those fixable puzzles to mount them in the league.
