Arsenal Message Board
Although AW is the best manger Arsenal have ever had, it occurred to me that he is probably more skillful at being runner up than anything else...after he lost the in the final of the carling cup this year, that completed a unique feat for him, he has now seen arsenal come runner up in All competitions:
Premiership - five times
UEFA CUP - 1999
FA CUP - 2001 ...lost 2-1 after being 1-0 up
Champions League - 2006 ...lost 2-1 after being 1-0 up
Carling CUP - 2007 ...lost 2-1 after being 1-0 up
It should be noted that NO team or manager is successful ALL the time.Any temam/manger who has a 50-70% win ratio, is,in my opinion,top quality.
So he's lost a few finals...so has alex freguson,brazil etc
The important thing is that he's won just has many finals,in addition to championships as well.
Don't be such a dick
Premiership :- won 3 times
Fa Cup :- Winners 1998,2002,2003,2005
How does that make him a runner-up.
Besides, many supporters out there would be extremely pleased if their club had got anywhere near those.
