Okay lets all stop the squabbling, we have the ‘Arsene know bests’ on the left, we have the ‘Arsene’s lost it’ to the right and we have the ‘give him one more seasoners’ in the middle.
So I have a very ‘todays fashion’ idea as a solution, and we could do it all in house, tell me what you think.
Retire Pat Rice, Pat I love you mate but a change is needed, bring in Steve Bould as your new number two, he’s in your academy so it’s progression and he’s your choice, he will be more vocal and knows the younger players. We need freshening up, you and Pat are getting stale.
Bring in Keown as the defensive coach, him or Adams. Bring in Seaman as the goal keeping coach, and buy Joe Hart or Buffon, no one else will do, my choice is Hart.
If you don’t have Bould as your number two then swap that idea with Keown, he’ll be vocal and frankly that’s what you need Arsene, someone to challenge you and your autocratic way of running Arsenal football club.
As I have said many times before, a football club should be run prudently, it should work spend only what it can afford but it is not a business and should not be run as one.
A football club is more a public service, it has paying fans that give it the money, not shareholders, yes Arsenal does have shareholders but they don’t get paid a dividend, if Arsenal were a business, then it would pay a dividend, but it isn’t and it doesn’t.
Businesses don’t have 60,000 fans paying them entrance money every 2 weeks and businesses rarely sell merchandising, so I get fed up when I hear that we are a business, we are most definitely not.
So if we have a transfer budget, it is the duty of the management to spend it, that’s what it’s there for, to improve the team, to freshen up the dressing room and to give the fans something to smile about and of course to brag about.
So to sum up, a coalition could be just what Arsenal need to bring us some silverware, no one loses face, we are crap at the back and Wenger has admitted he is not a great knowledge on keepers, bring in someone that is, then and listen to what people are saying.
Tomorrow we talk about the game, Today spare a though for Pedro who is on a mountain hiking sponsored walk somewhere in the countryside, I’m meeting him and his brother tomorrow but I’m not sure what sort of shape he’ll be in after an 18 mile hike! I’m not sure what the charity is but Let’s wish him luck! Any kind of charity work is good work.
Have a great day today Grovers, tomorrow is the last game until July, let’s all enjoy it!
