OPINION: ARSENAL FAN GIVE INSIGHT TO DEFEND THEM OF THE PREMIER LEAGUE TROPHYLESS CRITICISM.

Arsenal FC Are now A Dozen Year Without Winning The English Premier League Trophy.


Arsenal under the French manager Arsene Wenger have won three Premier League title since he became manager of the club twenty years ago (Since 1996), their last Premier League title was 12 years ago in 2004 when they do the invincible after playing the whole season 2003/2004 without losing any game in the Premier League (26-Wins and 12-Draws).


Arsenal's first Premier League trophy (Since 1992) came in the 1997-98 season which is a season after Arsene Wenger took over of the club as manager, before Wenger, Arsenal have not finished as league runners-up but finish in the top four twice [ Fourth in the 1993-94 and Third-Place in 1996-97].
Their second and third Premier League trophy was on 2001-2002 and 2003-2004 respctively. Since then, Arsenal have gone Premier League trophyless till the just concluded 2015-16 season which see Leicester City claiming the title in a season many considered the chance for Arsenal to have due to the crisis in Chelsea and flop in Manchester United.


Many football fans have been criticising Arsenal and Arsene in different means for not showing toughness or strongness to winning the Premier League title and some Arsenal fans are sticking strong to their club and believe they are going to win it sooner than later no matter how though or strong their rivals are. While some fans are directing the criticism away from their club and pointing at other clubs which are more same or not better than Arsenal in terms of trophy challenging. 


A Nigerian Arsenal fan wrote online about if Arsenal are the only club in this trophyless trending if it is deserving for them or it should be looking into another direction of criticism.
Dare, from Olabisi Onabanjo University Teaching Hospital, OOUTH, in Nigeria wrote "" To claim Arsenal deserves criticism of not being mentally tough 'cos they have not won the league in 12 years is one-sided if the high-flying Liverpool with tough mental character has not won it in more than 2 decades. Why haven't we been hearing of this lack of Mental toughness in Merseyside. Oh! what of Arsenal's neighbor, Spurs? How many league titles do they have in that "last dozen years"? I could go on.....

"I feel it is lazy and stereotyped to throw the accusation of lack of mental toughness at Arsenal. They haven't won the Premier League in 12 years, yeah! we know.... so is more than half of the team in the league this season. Why it is only Arsenal, consistently making top four (not easy as it sounds, ask Manchester Utd fans) who lacks mental toughness, I will never understand.""






POLL: DOES ARSENAL DESERVE THE PREMIER LEAGUE TROPHYLESS CRITICISM ALONE FROM OTHER CLUBS?
