Another day rolls on, more bad news rolls in.
Jonny Evans, available for… £25m.
Who knew? Monied clubs in the Premier League only willing to sell their best players late on for a premium. So much for finding value late on in the window. I mean, stupid proposition anyway… maybe when TV deals weren’t good to smaller clubs, but now lots of teams are rolling in dough, it’s harder to squeeze a cheap worldy last minute (not that we often did sign the worldies last minute?)
Man, it’s miserable being an Arsenal fan. What’s odd about the terrible starts to the season, is the aggressive messages you get post-Wenger collapse. Like I haven’t been calling these issues all summer. Like it’s a surprise.
I guess we all deal with football grief differently.
So what do we have today?
Well, it’s getting all a touch painful, and we’re what, two games in? Arsene Wenger bore the wrath of the away support as fans chanted for him to leave the club. I wasn’t at the game, but I read it was quite vociferous and it wasn’t a minority.
I think the difficulty for Arsene Wenger at this point is that he’s taken things too far. He’s run out of goodwill. The fans are unfortunately in a position where anything outside a resounding win is a disappointment fueled by his ineptitude that needs to be met with aggressive disobedience.
