Three Reasons Arsenal should still get rid of Wenger

Arsenal may have just ended their nine-year trophy wait, but the manner of the victory over Hull has raised a fair few questions. The Gunners were slow starters at Wembley as they fell behind to two efforts from James Chester and Curtis Davies and struggled to truly get going even though they took the win with an extra-time Aaron Ramsey effort. Hull are by no means a poor side, but as a team only just out of the second tier, the Londoners should really be dispatching them with a little more ease than they eventually did. Arsene Wenger could be about to pen a new contract at the Emirates Stadium, but here are three reasons we think the club should take their paperwork off of the table.

Poor signings

It’s easy to forget that Yaya Sanogo looked likely to be one of Arsenal’s major signings last summer. The cumbersome forward was thrust into the FA Cup Final even though he is yet to open his Gunners account and looked more than a little out of place on the Wembley turf. Mesut Ozil also failed to shine despite costing over £40m, while the less said about Kim Kallstrom – who didn’t even make the bench today – the better.

Tactics out-dated

Even though they came back, Arsenal were more than a little lethargic against Hull. Much of their attacking play was predictable, and it looked as if Hull boss Steve Bruce knew exactly what he would be up against.

Arsenal need a fresh start

While Arsenal were huffing and puffing to a first trophy in nine years Diego Atletico Madrid lifting the La Liga title with a fresh and imaginative coach in the shape of Diego Simeone at the helm. Gunners fans could be forgiven for wishing they had the Argentine in the dugout.
