So after months of arguing with just about everyone on the internet that had a high opinion of themselves, we at Le Grove got it right again, we have bundles of dosh, this black hole that is Arsenal is as much of a myth as we have always said it is and now Danny Fiszman is saying it is, so who’s the real fibber in all of this? Who knows? Let’s leave it at that then shall we?
It will be interesting to read what others are saying now this has come out!
This is what Danny said with regard to our finances,
‘There is this constant thing that the Emirates is bleeding the club, that we’ve got these repayments — it’s total crap stressed Fiszman – look at our accounts and you will see our net payments are £20m and the revenue increase from the new stadium is close to £50m. Explain to me how the stadium bleeds the club if it’s producing an extra £30m a year’
Ok that’s the maths sorted out, he then went onto say,
‘It’s not our decision who he spends money on, nor will it ever be our decision. If he said to us ‘I want this guy and he’s £30 million, can I buy him?’ the answer is yes. Absolutely yes. We totally back him. It’s his decision’
So who’s the one we’ve said all along won’t spend money? You know, he knows and we know that he is determined to win something so he can say he did it without spending money, well that’s admirable to a point but when we win nothing as a result, year after year, it gets a little boring, especially when a couple of signings will do it. There’s still time, but for goodness sake if you do buy someone, make it a world class player please.
Don’t forget we got rid of 12 and brought in 4 and when you said we were short last year, what does that make us this year? You also said you were keeping the team together and no one was leaving…
The Champions league draw could have been better, but there again it could have been worse, the toughies for me are Kiev and Fernebache away, I got my wish as we get Kiev in September at least, so that takes away their winter advantage.
I watched the Twenty game again last night and was heartened, a few things, Robin is so close to getting a hatful and he brings others into the game so well, Theo was as impressive as Denilson wasn’t, but don’t you miss a lot when watching it live after a few cases of beer?
As many of you are saying, the Newcastle game will show us if the experiment will get us into the top four, but Arsene, go and spend some of our money, we really need to strengthen with some quality, and we need to do it quickly, Cana would do it, don’t say you need to find the right player, there are plenty around and you’ve had long enough.
I think if Diaby (who could be an answer) gets injured again then you need to sell him, his injuries are worse than Owen’s and Rosicky’s combined, we can’t afford a player like that, not with Robin and Tomas in the side we’re left too exposed, too often, I mean we are now, and the season has only just begun.
Have a great Friday Grovers tomorrow our season begins.
