Arsenal supporters expect too much, says Fulham boss Jol

Arsenal fans should not hold such high expectations for their team in light of the sides with which they are competing, Fulham manager Martin Jol has said, according to BBC Sport.

The Gunners have endured a difficult start to the season, one which is Arsene Wenger’s worst ever start to a Premier League campaign since he took over at the club over 16 years ago.


Wenger has brought great success in that time, including an unbeaten season in 2003-04 - after which his team were labelled the Invincibles.


However, Arsenal have not won a trophy since 2005's FA Cup success, leading some fans of the club to call for the Frenchman’s head, but Jol has warned against such drastic action and suggested Arsenal might regret losing their current boss.


Jol said: “Seven years? That's a long time. Of course, it's probably not what an Arsenal fan wants.


Wenger created the new Arsenal. Maybe in three years' time, they will hope and pray to get someone like Wenger.


He added: “If you look at the likes of Man City with almost half a billion spent, Man United, it's not easy nowadays. Can you expect a team like Arsenal to win things with Chelsea, Man City, Man United, all these clubs?


When asked if Arsenal supporters had a reason to be angry with their team’s recent trophy drought, former Tottenham manager Jol said: “I don't think you have to be angry. Frustrated is probably the better word.


Arsenal and Fulham meet at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday and go into the game at close quarters in the table, sitting seventh and eighth respectively, separated by only goal difference.
