What a bad time it is to be a Gunner. 2017-18 was a disappointing season for Arsenal, but one that could be extremely beneficial in moving forward.
Although the expectations weren’t very high for Arsenal coming into the season, their campaign may very well be considered another failure.
Gunners fans would’ve expected their team to at least fight for a Champions League place, but their failure to even remotely compete for it will come as a massive disappointment. They finished a whopping 12 points outside the top four.
Throw the Europa League semi-final loss to Atletico Madrid on top of that, and Arsenal’s 2017-18 can be classed as a very poor season. Yet, the club’s decision to mutually part ways with manager Arsene Wenger is one of the best things to happen at the Emirates in a long, long time.
A sad departure, yes, but a much-needed one as well. For the first time in a long time, things are looking very exciting for Arsenal. A new face in the dugout will mean fresh ideas, and a fresh sense of optimism around the club once again.
