First of all let me say that is probably the most condescending comment you have uttered. How arrogant you truly are to decide what is intelligent in life when you appear to do so much the footballing world sees as unintelligent.
Before some out there react, think about what he said, he insulted you for wanting decent players. Big Frank, Ray Parlour, Lee Dixon, Nigel Winterburn, Ian Wright, Patrick Vieira, Bobby Pires, Liam Brady, every journalist in the sporting world and me all say it, so what, we are all wrong?
So you know where I’m going with this, if you don’t think you’ll like it, stop reading.
Here are a few ‘intelligence in life’ points you may wish to consider.
1) Thinking that some of your players are world class but 5 of your best players want out because they don’t agree and want to win silverware.
2) Paying those same poor players crazy money and giving them long contracts so they won’t leave even when we try to sell them.
3) Playing them in the team for years when they are clearly not good enough and not seeing that.
4) Playing kids in the team and costing us points and the minute they get good they want out. What are we a creche?
5) Buying average players for big bucks instead of great players for not much more. Squillaci and Almunia as examples, and don’t say the were cheap because they are both worthless.
6) Failing constantly to play hard ball with teams that buy our players.
Cesc – Ask for Affelay and £30mil or Busquets and £15mil.
Nasri and Clichy – We’ll have Johnson and Richards.
Unhappy bunnies like Walcott – Why not play him in the middle, that’s his position, strangely he might be better and want to stay.
Then ask yourself why no-one has asked to buy Bendtner, Eboue, Almunia, Fabianski, Denilson, Diaby, Rosicky, Chamakh, Squillaci or Alex Song?
I can tell you, it’s because they aren’t good enough for big teams, they only tend to buy good players, and our good players ask to leave because they are playing with crap players, work that out Arsene, because that is intelligence.
Let’s now add selling the player you gave Ashley Cole’s place to for an undisclosed fee to our biggest rival. Smart, what does undisclosed mean? Either it was a crap deal or we the fans can’t be trusted with knowing the amount, well done Arsene, your joint poster boy for project youth is the first one to jump, back stabber or smart kid?
Add another intelligent sign Arsene, always sell your players before you replace them, oops sorry, I mean the other way around, now the footballing world can hold you to ransom, unless of course you plan on following that mistake with another and promoting one of your babies.
Arsenal would like to thank Gael for 8 years of service, Le Grove would like to thank you for dissing project youth.
And before one of your disciples leaps up and says that Clichy was going down hill and was crap, don’t forget only last week you were begging him to stay.
Amazing that Nasri and Clichy get down to the last year of their contracts yet Song, Diaby, Denilson and Bendtner all have extended ones, oh and guess who no one wants them.
And you have the temerity to tell the fans they are unintelligent! How do you continue to fool this board eh? How do you do it!
Maybe you have a bunch of replacements lined up and I will have to apologise, but you have often said buying more than two players won’t work, and if the so called players don’t leave we know you’ll pay them masses to stay another year, why? They have contracts.
Cesc needs to leave, he can’t keep telling us he loves Barca more, he gets too many injuries for me so take the highest bid, if he doesn’t want to go to Madrid then hard luck, this is Arsenal, it’s not about him.
Then use the money to get someone as good but injury free.
Personally I think selling Clichy was good news, not replacing him with a top player would be a disaster, I like Gibbs but he isn’t ready and is injury prone, Traore is not good enough.
Take on board what your own players are telling you, it’s not just Clichy, Cesc, Nasri, RVP and Theo telling you, we lost Cole, Kolo, Ade and Henry for the same reasons, open your eyes Arsene because you really don’t know best.
You now have the chance to really bring in new and better players, you have the money, but running this club with the yes men we have backing your every move is the equivalent of a Thai bride, they do anything you ask and in any position, they blow smoke up your arse non-stop and they convince you it’s not about the money.
I would hate not to be challenged, it seems to me there are few people save us that do, another fruitless season would show this club how big they are, support will dwindle, sponsors would too, if you don’t act Champions league qualification would be a thing of the past.
I have named a bunch of players that we have that are rubbish, paying them the money you do hinders us, costs us and is in your own words, is unintelligent.
Have a great day Grovers, let’s see what news we get today, oh and Gervinho doesn’t float my boat, get some real talent that will work from day one.
