I’m a Gooner involved in a relationship with a Premier League manager. I know he’s a good man. Under him, Arsenal Football Club has won the league 3 times, the FA Cup 4 times, and been involved in Champions League football for 14 straight years. He’s smart, has a good sense of humor, and is very fiscally responsible.
But I’m worried that the relationship has grown stagnant. Arsenal have not won a trophy in 7 years. Crabby, how long should a Gooner wait for silverware?

If you find yourself constantly wondering when your club is going to win a trophy, or If you feel one (or more) or your needs is not being met, then the deadline has probably already passed. You might even be filling your thoughts with frustration and anxiety about the future of your club. The issue of how long to wait for silverware might be a decision point for you.
- Can you accept the relationship as it is?
- Are you strong enough to let him leave?
- What are the issues that might be holding him back?
- Finally, can you wait it out?
You will have to search your heart and your head for these answers.
