Almost every club, every fan and every person must’ve surely gone through a period of time where nothing goes their way. It seems like Arsenal have been haunted by such a curse, and it has only gotten worse.
Things have gotten so frustrating at the Emirates that a crisis meeting held by the players in the absence of boss Arséne Wenger witnessed club vice-captain Laurent Koscielny break down in tears as he delivered his thoughts to the rest of the squad.
This incident followed the Gunners’ 3-0 thrashing against a high-flying Man City in the Carabao Cup final. Wenger’s men felt it was necessary to talk things over about their embarrassing consistency in underperforming this season, and proceeded to sit down and have a professional talk.

However, as per The Sun, things did not stay very ‘professional’ during the meeting, as emotions took over Koscielny. It was also reported that some players expressed that they were lacking sufficient and proper coaching, and felt like they need ‘more’.
Further, it also seems like the club higher-ups have had enough of Wenger’s reign, and the likes of Ivan Gazidis and Sir Chips Keswick are already plotting a life without their legendary manager.
The Londoners suffered twice by the hands of Pep Guardiola in the span of 5 days, and Arsenal are under a crisis they haven’t experienced for decades.
They sit 10 points adrift of any Champions League action next season, and their only way to walk out to the UCL anthem next season would be to win the Europa League, which is now hurdled by an AC Milan side that hasn’t conceded a goal in 7 matches.
