Been there, heard all this before and now it's beginning to worry me. Cesc tells the world Arsene Wenger is like his dad, great, I would like it if he was like his football manager, that might be more fitting.
He must be the tenth player to say Wenger is like his dad, what are we, an orphanage or a football club?
It hasn't done us much good has it, I mean we haven't won much on the back of that have we.
Cesc Fabregas should want to be here because he's an Arsenal player, not because Wenger is the second most important dad he has. So what does that mean then, all our players will walk away if Wenger goes?
This really is becoming a club where the most important person is the manager, what happened to the club being bigger than anyone?
So let's look at who we've signed and who we've let go. Let me begin this by saying that Arsene identified that defence was his priority, we've conceded way too many goals he said, since then, we have let go of 4 centre backs (2 top ones) and signed one (complete unknown). And we are going to finish above 3rd this season, err, how's that then?
And don't say Djourou, he's a perma-crock.
I assume Chamakh replaced Ade, so no change there, perhaps we didn't earn enough last year, perhaps when Wenger finally said he could compete with Chelsea, he meant because they haven't spent much either.
Ok bitch over, I'm looking forward to tomorrow and Sunday, at least we get to see some football.
I do think we look good all over the pitch but we have significantly weakened the defence, whichever way I look at it, it's weaker, I really can't see how the boss thinks we'll finish higher than last season with the same keepers and a far worse by miles defence.
And if he is to buy a couple before the season starts, how will they bed in? To save a few quid in purchases to cost us the league yet again, I feel we have been here before, I know we've been here before, if someone out there can explain how we are stronger than last season, I would love to know. Defence wise I mean.
Have a nice day Grovers, you never know...
