Gunners fan Piers Morgan: If I ran Arsenal, I’d transform the club by…

Piers Morgan

Arsenal fan Piers Morgan isn’t happy with the current direction of the club.

Renowned celebrity Arsenal fan Piers Morgan has been highly critical of the club for years.

He has hinted on many occasions that Arsene Wenger is past his sell-by date and striker Olivier Giroud isn’t good enough to wear the shirt.

Whilst his Arsenal bashing is extreme at times, the last couple of months have certainly given him more ammunition to have a pop.

The Gunners started the year in pole position, leading the Premier League table and playing some excellent football.

Injuries and a lack of activity in the January transfer window, however, have ultimately cost Arsenal’s Premier League title aspirations and for striker Olivier Giroud, his five league goals in 2014 haven’t helped his cause in Morgan’s eyes.

Despite remaining heavy favourites to win the FA Cup, Arsenal’s crushing 3-0 loss at Everton sees the Toffees move to within one point of Arsene Wenger’s men and for the first time this side of the millennium, the Frenchman could see his side surrender Champions League football.

Watching Arsenal’s painful loss at Everton, Piers Morgan was channelling his opinions on social networking site Twitter and later published what he would do to shake things up at the Emirates.

Roberto Martinez – a FA Cup winner with Wigan – has proven to be an astute young manager who looks capable of taking Everton to the next level. He has been sounded out as a possible Wenger replacement in the past, and remains a favourite to take over the reins in North London when Wenger calls a time on his career.

Piers Morgan’s other suggestions were the signings of Ross Barkley and Luis Suarez. The duo would certainly add much-needed impetus and overall quality to the Arsenal first-team, but both would naturally come at a very heavy price, and possibly not at all.
