Robson : I would have sacked Wenger four years ago

Stewart Robson is perhaps the most bitter man in football, so bitter in fact that he was fired by Arsenal for being so biased against the club that was paying his wages that the fans complained in their hundreds (if not thousands), pleading with Arsenal to remove him (my words and reason, not theirs) so it really comes as no surprise that since his sacking he has got even more bitter.

I know, you wouldn’t have thought it was possible.

Speaking, once again, through/to TalkSport, Robson has said

I would have sacked him four years ago but I’m in the minority. Arsenal football club need a new manager and they need it soon.

No matter where you stand in the Arsene debate, there can be no denying the vitriol that Robson has been spewing forth for some time now. Four years ago Arsenal had not long moved to the Emirates but it seems that something as ‘insignificant’ as a stadium move is irrelevant to Stewart ‘I’m not bitter honest’ Robson.

He continued

“In my view he’s not [unsackable]. I wrote an article about four or five years ago when I said he was the cause of a lot of problems at Arsenal.

“He doesn’t have the tactical understanding, his manner on the side of the pitch doesn’t help the team, he’s petulant and therefore his players become petrulant [sic], he doesn’t give any information from the sidelines and his teams look under prepared defensively.

“I wrote that article five years and nothing has changed my mind since. In fact my views on Arsene Wenger are even stronger now than they were then. There’s still 50% of the fans which will say what a good job he is doing, and we must trust in Arsene Wenger, but I just don’t see it.”
