If nothing else was proved by losing to a team 64 places beneath us and who’s total transfer spend was £7,500 plus the proceeds of a friendly, it was that Wenger is un-sackable.
He wouldn’t get fired if he was a famous northern DJ’s flatmate, he is untouchable, what a plank he really is.
I watched the game last night in the hope that he would finally change his rigid policy of playing overpaid underskilled kids, because he always does in this competition.
That was the first surprise, he didn’t, he played near on a full strength team, his reason? Not that he finally wanted to change tack and try and win with his first team, no, it was that his players don’t play again until next Monday.
Funny that, last week his team were jaded, you would think he’d want to give them a little rest wouldn’t you!
He will never admit when he is wrong will he?
Why Steve Bould took the job is beyond me, it must just be about money, he says nothing, stands behind Wenger and only God must know what he does in training, this zonal marking is laughable.
Yet again we conceded a soft goal because of zonal marking, our keeper once again tried to show how he can attempt to save a high shot by diving at the ground, something he must have picked up from Fabianski.
Anyway we were one down as usual to a very average team that worked hard and apart from yet another Gervinho missed open goal, that was about it for the first half.
Another Wenger thing is to buy a completely hopeless player, stick him in the team until we all start to abuse him and then quietly let him disappear into the sunset.
Senderos, Denilson, Bendtner and Eboue to name but a few. Next up Santos!
He is hopeless Arsene, either your are blind, or you really have lost it, I suspect the latter.
The other enigma on the pitch is Ramsey, now I think when he gets older, he will be a decent player, but he isn’t a right winger, again, only a fool would keep trying him there, say no more, we are managed by a fool, last night it was there for the whole world to see.
He kept Gervinho on and took Podolski off. Next up Chamakh, another crap player he got on a free, except the fact he gets massive wages and no doubt a signing on fee, so the myth of a player costing nothing helps his financially astute reputation no end.
But as usual, it’s a massive lie.
Arsenal forget most of us can count and having a wage bill of £120mil shows we are not financially well run at all, in fact the only reason we have so much money is we keep selling our best players and we rip our own fans off.
Anyway on to the second half, we continued to zonal mark on corners and struggled, yet on free kicks in similar positions we didn’t, and at almost every free kick we cleared well and every corner we struggled, go figure, you would think that Steve Bould would tell his boss this strange fact and do something about it.
Oops sorry Steve, that would involve having an opinion and Wenger doesn’t allow that.
Anyway, something amazing was about to happen, on 69 minutes Arsenal had their first shot on target, yes this fantastic team finally had a shot on target!
I was so shocked I almost forgot about the misses of Chamakh, Ramsey and Gervinho.
Two minutes to go and up pops Vermaelen to head an equaliser, thank God, now we can go on and finish this tie I thought.
Cazorla tried his best and Jack Wilshere was everywhere but to no avail, it went through extra time to penalties and we were appalling.
Cazorla missed, Chamakh missed (no surprise there) then Jack and Oxo scored and Vermaelen missed. He is not having a great season is he?
Give the armband to Arteta and get on with damage limitation, or risk shipping more goals because Vermaelen can’t do both.
What we needed out there was a finisher, Walcott has been with us for a long time, he signed in the same January window as Ade and Diaby, remember those two?
We watch him fall over himself for years, then he gets good and we won’t pay him what we pay Podolski and Chamakh.
What a mug you are Wenger, even if you want to sell him, get him to sign a new 5 year contract and treble what you can get for him. A nine year old American girl selling Lemonade in an HSBC ad could work that one out, why the hell can’t you?
Anyway to finish, Wenger should resign, he won’t because he has no pride, zip, anyone with an ounce of humility would realise his policies are killing this club.
Bringing back Henry is unbelievable, if he was that good then why did we sell him for a paltry £16mil four years ago? Why not bring back Tony Adams? Crap. Sign Theo up, get rid of Gervinho, Chamakh, Squillaci, Bendtner, Denilson, Santos and Diaby who is a disgraceful waste of money and buy what we need.
So sorry if I missed any hopeless overpaid underused Wenger-buys just then!
Wenger’s successful years were when, and only when he spent big money, well it was big in those days. Since he stopped spending, we’ve won nothing, and qualifying for a competition that we never win, doesn’t count. Sorry.
When you’ve done all that, return your annual salary, your bonus, your car keys and don’t let the door hit your arse on the way out.
We want our Arsenal back.
Have a nice day Grover’s I feel a bit better now I got that off my chest, but nothing will improve until we get rid of this madman.
Who by the way thinks last night wasn’t humiliating as they defended well. Says it all really doesn’t it.
