testy start for wenger and the team

i read an article from daily mail and felt utterly disgusted. indeed arsenal season has been ugly and less than convincing but it is not wise to speculate anything just yet when the man himself has spoken his commitment to the club. here's an excerpt from the article itself

"With several key players said to be heading for The Emirates exit door and his own future the subject of speculation, Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger faces a testing start to 2009 as the Gunners look to reignite their fading Premier League title bid.

Real Madrid have reportedly offered the Frenchman a lucrative £25 million contract to take over from former Spurs coach Juande Ramos at the Bernabeu.

And with Spanish giants Real apparently attempting to sweeten the proposition to recruit  the French boss by insisting they will break the bank to sign Cesc Fabregas, perhaps the timing couldn't be better for Wenger to bid a fond farewell.

With two years left to run on his current contract the ever-loyal Wenger has always pledged his commitment to Arsenal regardless or whatever difficulties he has faced.

But for the all the present uncertainty, January may prove to be a 'real' pivotal month for both the club and its manager".

wenger's contract runs out two years from now and it will be a horror if he decides to move on to other club in the summer. it sounds ridiculous and weird but it's still possible. i can still remember real madrid effort to coax ronaldo to leave man utd last summer. and they won't let go until the very end. wenger has never let money tempted him in so many ways, but he loves challenge. with ample players in madrid, he can make his champs league trophy a dream come true. arsenal are struggling to make the 4th cut, and if real madrid were able to enter champs league next year, wenger would drool over the offer made by real madrid. i'm a fan of real madrid and will love to see them to become a champion once more, however the idea of wenger taking over the management seems a bit out of range for me. moreover, he hates being supervised by a sporting director. he wants to have a squad for himself and let him to decide which player should stay and leave. by having a sporting director, he will have another 'manager' messing up his work. it's like having two lovers at the same time. who wants to be involved in such situation? wenger certainly doesn't.  he has been the manager for 12 years and hopefully for another 2 years. i want to see arsenal win something this season and beyond. and i believe wenger is the right man to do the job. he is of course only a human and will not be exempted from making errors along the way. but it doesn't mean arsenal will be greater without him. plus, there will be massive exodus with his exit. fabregas is certainly be gone by the next day wenger signing off. and there will be a lot more players to leave if the manager decides to move on, not imagine the director himself. chaos is what we can get if he leaves. well, maybe it won't be that bad but i believe it will posses a lot more threat to arsenal dream title chase. it seems premier league is out of touch, therefore i can only hope for champs league title which is a lot tougher than the league itself. prepare your guns and ammunition mr. wenger coz it'll be ugly.....
