Piers Morgan is clearly unhappy with the entire Arsenal club, and his Twitter posts during and after the Gunners’ 2-0 loss to Schalke did not hide his huge disappointment.
For Morgan, who wished Wayne Rooney’s hair a 16-month anniversary on Wednesday, Arsenal’s Champions League defeat to the Germans was far from inevitable.
At some point during the Champions League game, the CNN star wrote on his official Twitter page: “We look so relentlessly mediocre tonight. Depressing. #Arsenal .“
He then tweeted: “Terrible #Arsenal defending. Terrible performance. And we all know exactly who to thank: #IvanTheTerrible.”
Referring to the huge decline of the club, Piers Morgan posted shortly after: “0-2. From The Invincibles… to this debacle. And still nobody’s allowed to question Wenger. Ridiculous. #Arsenal.”
Even more disappointed, Piers Morgan kept expressing his discontent over Arsenal FC’s worrying form: “I’m hearing a whole stadium booing. Ominous for Wenger. And rightly so. We’re going backwards, fast. #Arsenal #SellingClub.”
And this message was followed by another tweet, in which he questioned the need to remain loyal to the club’s pressured manager Arsene Wenger.
“And still I get the ‘Arsene for life’ tweets. When will #Arsenal fans wake up and realise he’s not the manager he was?”
Finally, Morgan slammed the entire club, calling for a change that would bring redemption:
“Greedy, deluded board + fading, once-great manager + under-performing, weak-willed players = FAILURE. Time for change,” he wrote.
Arsenal FC have lost 3 of their last 5 games in all competitions. They currently sit in 9th position with 12 points in the English Premier League table, following 2 draws and 3 losses in 8 games so far this season.
