Wenger: I want so much for this team to win that I am giving every drop of my blood to make sure that they win. I want them to be successful because they deserve it.
Don't know where to start with that statement.
You can bet, though, that telling these guys they deserve success is not the kind of encouragement they need. They are already complacent, unjustly arrogant. They have, at times, the swagger of success but not the success itself.
They need to be told to buck up their ideas- but guess what? The manager won't do it, and there isn't a single player in the squad with the ability to pull the troops into line.
It looks like this here Prophet of Doom was not being so rash in his pessimism...
That said, we should not lose sight of the fact that things could be a lot worse.
