About £7 million a year, because I said that without signing decent players and buying cheap unproven French players instead, that’s what would happen. And I was right, so when people ask me if I could manage Arsenal better, the answer is well I couldn’t do worse could I?
Thing is this whole project youth thing he’s been on is a compulsive, obsessive and frankly stupid trip from start to finish, 2 seasons ago after he cynically subbed the sub, Eboue, and I say cynical because the crowd were about to get on his back, so he sacrificed the sub, by subbing him and allowing him to do footballs longest walk, he got him booed and saved himself. That is a fact.
Then the day after I wrote a post about the Emperors clothes, something that I have to say has been used by several national newspapers many times since, when I said it though it upset many people. What? How can you say that about the man that made Arsenal what it is today.
Since the debacle that has been this season, I am no longer in the minority, am I glad though? Am I hell, I am an Arsenal fan and I hate to see my team play like they are right now. We used to be called the best footballing side in the EPL, not any longer, now we are the laughing stock of the EPL. Not for our football and our recent results, but for our leaders bizarre comments.
Our manager got us drawn against Barca because he fielded weakened sides in our group, then guess what? We got knocked out, then we lost the Carling Cup, why? Because we had a kid in goal and a cheap import in defence, now we are fighting to hold on to our best players, why? Is that my fault?
No, it’s because ambitious players want to win silverware and if I were Cesc or Nasri, I would have been horrified when we signed Chamakh on a free, Squillaci from Seville and Koscielny from a French club I have never seen and nor I suspect had Wenger. I bet Grimandi recommended and Wenger bought on that recommendation.
He said mid season this was his best ever squad, what a ridiculous comment! I think he was great when he spent proper money, now he’s lost it and I have had it, I want my team back.
I hear rumours about Downing and Parker, Parker was a player we should have signed years ago, now he’s the wrong age and probably injury prone, Downing was never good enough and never will be, but compared to say Hazard or Young represents another cheap option, has this man learned nothing?
Arsene if you are reading, go out and buy some decent players, choose from Hazard, Young, Samba, Sackho, Cahill plus a world class DM and a goalscorer, that’s what we need, you don’t need to spend £50 mil on a player that is a stupid thing to say, you won’t even get that for your love child.
Time to wise up and get your cheque book out or time to go somewhere else. Time to put the fans first and your project in the bin, it hasn’t worked, one more season with these players will do nothing, you can’t improve pace, intelligence or guts.
That twit Denilson has played over 160 Premiership games for us and is useless, you have continued to play him even though everyone else thinks he’s crap, now even he has turned on you, open your eyes. It’s beyond stubborn now, it’s become odd, very, very odd.
Here’s a list of players that need to go, if they are as great as you say they are we would raise some serious cash. Almunia, Eboue, Clichy, Denilson, Rosicky, Squillaci, Denilson, Bendtner and at least 80% the kids you have out on loan, they’ll never make it. And stick Song, Koscielny and Chamakh on notice.
Gone are the days when we can let a player bed in the EPL for a year, good players rarely need that.
That’s it, have a great day Grovers, in a few days the window will open, lets just hope that this team is strengthened properly, we’ve waited long enough and Arsene, you have run out of excuses, because of you we are now the laughing stock, the team all the other fans laugh at, you seem to be able to screw up year in, year out and account to no one, but you know what? You account to us and one day you’ll be found out and moved on, don’t ruin your legacy, change now, project youth is dead.
