Piers Morgan has demanded that Arsenal sack manager Arsene Wenger after the Gunners lost from a winning position once again in tonight’s 2-1 defeat at Swansea.

Five days after surrendering a three-goal lead against Anderlecht, Arsenal travelled to South Wales this evening hoping to get back to winning ways.

And we looked on course to do that after main man Alexis Sanchez fired us into deserved lead midway through the second half, but Gylfi Sigurdsson and Bafetimbi Gomis scored in quick succession to bookend a truly horrific week for the Arsenal.

Morgan is now at the end of his tether with Wenger, but claims that nobody at the club has the courage to dismiss him.

The television host and journalist took to Twitter to post a series of scathing assessments:

On Tuesday, following that 3-3 draw with Anderlecht, Morgan took it upon himself to try sign Manchester City Vincent Kompany for Arsenal. Here’s the hilarious exchange.

    Wenger must go. He has no new ideas for the club. He should leave the stage for a more combative manager who will be willing to make a mark. Go Wenger go.

    Dear Arsene, I find myself writing this letter not out of anger
    but out of frustration. As a fan (not customer, fan) of the
    Arsenal I find it hard to get angry with the team’s performances
    these days because to be frank, nothing surprises me
    anymore. I have seen it all before. Arsenal are, to some extent,
    masters of snatching defeat from the jaws of victory. So why
    am I writing this? As I have touched upon above, it is a letter
    borne out of frustration. Frustration that the club, run by you
    Mr Wenger is in a never ending cycle of mediocrity when things
    can be so much better given the resources at our disposal. If
    you love Arsenal as much as you say you do, please do the
    best for the club and accept you have taken it as far as you
    can, resign and allow another manager to take the club
    forward. You can enjoy your legacy of revolutionising English
    Football and enjoy the fact you had a hugely successful first 10
    years at Arsenal. No doubt you will read this and think “what
    does he know? he hasn’t worked 2 minutes in football or won
    the FA cup” and you are quite right, I haven’t. That doesn’t
    make my opinion any less valid, nor does it prevent me from
    having one. I am a pragmatist, to me, to flourish is to adapt, to
    be questioned, to be challenged and in top level sport, to win.
    Since you have managed the club your style and philosophy
    hasn’t changed, hasn’t evolved but English Football has. Failure
    to adapt is costing us dear. Failure to address obvious
    weaknesses within the squad, the failure to bring in adequate
    or superior replacements for those players departing. Failure
    to address the lack of discipline in the team, not from a fouling
    perspective but from a tactical one, 3-2 up at home and we
    have 5 players in an advanced position against a team who by
    your own admission are excellent on the counter attack. It isn’t
    just this week’s capitulation against Anderlecht that prompts
    this letter it is a culmination of events throughout your tenure.
    The team do not learn lessons; the defence still make
    elementary mistakes. Blaming the players is the easy option
    but was the back four the same as last night when we
    conceded 4 against Newcastle at St James Park, 8 against
    Manchester United, 6 against Manchester City, 4 against
    Tottenham at home in 2008. No they weren’t, was the manager
    the same. Yes. That isn’t bad luck; it’s a trend, one you haven’t
    addressed over the years. There is no doubt you are stubborn,
    can that work to one’s advantage? Absolutely but it can also be
    detrimental if left unchecked, unfortunately it seems the latter
    is true. So you won’t resign, what is next? How do we change
    things? How can we ensure mistakes are not repeated? May I
    suggest the following? * If Steve Bould isn’t coaching the
    defence, let him, if he is then perhaps it’s time to delegate that
    away from him or bring in some ex- players who know a thing
    or two about defending, Messer’s Keown & Adams would be a
    good starting point. * Address the team’s obvious defensive
    weaknesses, accept the Wenger way may not be what’s best for
    Arsenal FC, not Arsene FC and purchase accordingly. There is a
    good reason the saying “you get what you pay for” exists and in
    most cases, rings true. There are some excellent defenders in
    the Premiership who would love to represent such a
    prestigious club like the Arsenal. Winston Reid was a good
    example. * Bring in a tactician who can be a pragmatist as an
    assistant manager, someone who can offer a different opinion,
    challenge you and can set up a team according to the
    opponent. That’s not to say attacking football to which we are
    known for is compromised, it’s a pragmatic approach to
    ensure a good solid defensive foundation is built enabling the
    attacking players to express themselves. * Bring in an external
    party to evaluate the training methods & playing surfaces in
    order to better understand why so many of the players suffer
    muscular injuries. Shad Forsythe is an excellent addition; let’s
    focus on prevention rather than cure / rehabilitation. * Play
    players in their natural position, this sounds simple and it is, a
    number 10 (Ozil) is played as a number 10, not as a winger
    players who aren’t performing are taken out of the limelight to
    regain form (Ramsey) and players who are in form are played
    regularly not because they are a favourite of the manager.
    (Sanogo over Joel Campbell / Lukas Podolski) Now that may
    not be the case, but looking from the outside in, that’s the
    impression we get. * Make substitutions based on the needs of
    the game. If a player isn’t performing, be a manager, break
    your loyalty to that player and take him off at half time rather
    than the 70th minute. Be pragmatic, again, using Anderlecht as
    an example, if we are 3-2 up, don’t bring on attacking players,
    get on the touch line, organise 2 banks of 4 and if you
    absolutely have to have an attacking player on, use Walcott to
    hit them on the break and / or run into the channels to hold
    the ball up and keep possession. * Have a plan and listen to
    counsel – Identify the teams weaknesses, identify
    replacements and start doing the ground work as much as you
    can (within the rules of course) before the transfer window
    opens. Pay the asking price, using the Arsenal brand to sell to
    the player, get the deal done, the player settled well in time for
    pre-season as Manchester City & Chelsea have done in the past
    to their benefit. As a manager it is your job to identify the
    players you and your coaching staff think we need, not to
    negotiate fee’s or argue on what you think a player is worth.
    That is for the Chief Executive and Finance Director to worry
    about. I have decided not to mention the issues at board level,
    I wanted this letter to focus on what can be changed on the
    field and training pitches. This is not a personal attack; it is to
    raise concerns, to point out flaws, offer constructive solutions.
    It may not always seem obvious but the fans criticise because
    they care. We like you Arsene, love Arsenal FC. Let’s either see
    a change of manager or a change in approach. Being
    challenged and admitting mistakes isn’t a weakness it’s a sign
    you are prepared to change, prepared to evolve and hopefully
    be as successful as you were in the first 10 years as manager
    of this great club.

    Please make Wenger and the Board read this article. There is no other truth about Arsenal’s present situation than this.This actually represents all Arsenal loving supporters.So if the Board and indeed Mr Wenger love this club and it’s fans, they need to act accordingly and if that means Mr Wenger resigning so be it. Give him another office position if you feel you owe a lot to him than let this great club become a laughing stock.
