That was what Wenger said in the press, or that’s what they said he said. Is he that good? I honestly can only say I have seen him once, but what I have heard is he’s a cross between Ade-the-whore and Eto’o, from a sulky point of view, he’s also possibly from Ghana and that’s mean ACN problems and he’s still 19, and frankly we have a plethora of them (19 year olds) so for me it’s a no no. I say possibly, because he also possibly Italian!
Having said that, anyone considered world class would suit me, and there are a number of them that we could get. This crap about no one being available in January is so much shit, where do people get this from, even those that are cup tied put money first, I mean does Numbchucks actually think Bordeaux have a chance to win the ECL, course he doesn’t, he’d jump ship in a heartbeat, as would they all.
Blimey, come the summer transfer window the world cup will be on us, then they’ll be two excuses, the first will be from the player, I don’t want to go until my value doubles at the end of the world cup, then the second will be from the managers, his value has doubled since the world cup and I’m not paying that.
So what I’m saying is there is never a good or a bad time to buy a player. Maybe if our manager just concentrated on buying players when we needed them, we wouldn’t be in this creek, on a boat with no paddle and the smell of shit in the air.
Yesterday saw most blogs at the end of their ‘Arsene knows best tether’ some blogs called those blogs portents of doom, well I can’t fathom how those blogs can be happy to just muddle along with no prospect of winning or competing, they must be very content in life and have zip when it comes to ambition.
Me, I’m a winner, always have been, and when I can’t win I try my nuts off, the one thing I have never done in my entire life, is turn up for something knowing I can’t win, that’s what losers do, and what we turned up with against shitty showed the level of our ambition and how much we don’t care about winning.
If someone can convince me that bringing in a bunch of kids to get humiliated by another team is good for them, I would be delighted to hear how, if we want to see how good these kids are and how they react to situations, play them in the reserves, or give them some time in the first team, if they aren’t good enough for that, they shouldn’t be playing. And tell me why we bother playing in a reserve league if we learn more from the annual 3 match run in the Carling cup.
A few games in the Carling cup shows absolutely nothing, save we can beat the West Brom’s with our youth team but get smashed by Man shitty, well that will do them the power of good won’t it, they’ll have their heads in the air for months.
I wonder if the away fans will get their money back, they must have whistled all the way back home at the manner of our defeat, I expect they were thrilled to spend their money that way.
Any blog out there that sees no wrong with what’s happening at our club, cannot have any real winners commenting on them, they can’t have because winners want to win, not blow smoke up the arses of people that won’t listen.
Why settle for a Cortina when you can have an Aston, why settle for a flat when you can have a mansion, why settle for 4th place when you can win the league, see where I’m going with this?
The only thing that can get our season back on track is if the powers that be address the real issues, fix the defence by buying what we need, fix the midfield by buying and enforcer and fix the forward line by buying a proven goalscorer.
Don’t put this down to bad luck because we always get injuries, don’t put this on Robin because a few weeks ago we had 15 different goal scorers, the problem is the depth of quality in the squad, we have too many ordinary players on obscenely big contracts.
Constantly standing by the management doesn’t make you a better Arsenal fan, it makes you a whipping boy, challenging opinion is healthy, if we didn’t do that, we would still be living in caves, Arsenal football club was formed in 1886, not 1996, some of those followers would do well to remember that, two things in life are sure, the sun will come up in the morning and Arsenal football club will still be around long after Arsene isn’t.
Finally the handshake that wasn’t, that was just plain daft, it just made the manager look like a bad loser, if Hughes called him names, so what, £6 million a year should make that pain go away, it doesn’t create a siege mentality it just sets us up to get the piss taken out of us by other fans for having a petulant manager.
I had a day of it yesterday and I had no defence. Thanks boss.
January is still a month away, we have to work with what we have, tomorrow should be a breeze because it’s Stoke, if we can’t beat them at home then we are in more trouble than I thought, I expect a big win and will talk more about that tomorrow, I needed to get this week out of my system first.
Have a great day Grovers, it’s time to move on!
