So add that to the £30 million we get from the EPL and that means that we earn £80 million before we kick a ball, and that every season. Hmmmmm. Gazidas said we don’t need ECL qualification to survive so presumably the £50million is all bunce? Or did I read that wrong, what Ivan said?
First of all, though it kills me to say it, I have to congratulate the spuds and their manager Harry halfwit, on their performance last night.
They needed to go up north and beat the ‘new chavs on the block’ at their gaff, and did so with ease, a team made up of Arsenal reject David Bentley and one that got away, Wilson Palacios, plus a whole host of ex Pompey players and the Southampton player we didn’t get, that is actually worth his transfer fee, Gareth Bale.
The big difference between their team and ours, is they know how to fight, Harry tells Bentley and Gomes to find another team as they aren’t good enough, and they step up a gear, our manager tells our hapless players it wasn’t their fault as they are young and the other teams are beastly and look what happens.
Ok that’s the spud bit over, but watch it Arsene, they can still finish above us, at that point I would just give up, I have on here been warning you all season, beware the chasing pack and always play your best team.
So we’ll now have to suffer watching Harry spend £60 or £70 million in the transfer market whilst we bring in a free transfer and maybe one other from the French second division and persevere with this team as it’s very young and has great mental spirit, Arsene if you were watching last night, you would have seen a team with great mental spirit and it wasn’t us.
Anyway onto the positive bit, Kolo Toure and Adebayor left us for silverware, ha, ha, you pair of muppets, enjoy the Europa league next season! Oh and that’s if you’re not both replaced by decent footballers, it was great at the end to see the hapless Adebayor keep getting himself offside again, happy days!
We asked you yesterday for ideas that we could use as a protest, a protest for not spending our money, one of our lady Grovers, Queen of Suburbia, suggested a mock £20 note with Arsene’s head on it, something you could print off and leave at the stadium. Nice idea but, I’m not allowed in law to mimic our currency and I can’t suggest you distribute anything at The Grove as that’s also against the law. The litter law.
What I have done though is a funny money note which tells the boss that it’s actually our money and not his and would he please spend some of it, so double click on it, print it off and put on your wall at home as a souvenir. Or you may want to share it with your friends if you go to the game.
Pedro sent me a link where Arsene mentioned his pay was linked to how much money the club makes, and that my friends is why there is a massive conflict of interest between buying the players we need and the managers salary, it’s simply wrong. Find it here.
Finally when the manager tells us he doesn’t need many signings this summer, he’s wrong, we need to get rid of the dross and sign some big lumps that know how to fight to win a game, and not keep playing rubbish keepers and gutless players who are only interested in their next extended contract, which is pointless as he lets them go when they want to.
A CONTRACT SHOULD PROTECT ARSENAL FOOTBALL CLUB, OTHERWISE WHY BOTHER EXTENDING THEM?
The Arsenal board reward people that make them money, they also reward people that win them nothing, the manager walks into yet another improved contract extension for winning nothing, Arsene, have you no pride? The players get extended contracts for winning nothing and watching them play recently shows they have no pride, so I have to wonder why on earth the board run a football club, because ripping off the fans seems to be their only goal.
The goal of a football club is to win things, of course it should be run well, but all we do is make money, we’ve forgotten the other bit.
This is my last whinge Grovers, tomorrow Pedro’s back and we start the countdown, I’m going to the Fulham game to have fun, whatever happens I’ll always support the Arsenal, regardless of what this board and it manager are doing to it, it can’t last for ever can it!
