Only the most optimistic of Arsenal fans can think we’ll win anything this season or that we will finish in the top four, and if we do for what exactly? To watch the annual ECL humiliation like we did on Wednesday?
So the most important thing our club says we must do is to qualify for the Champions league, only to be eventually knocked out, great! Me, I think progressing in the Europa league may be a better idea, ManU or City will probably win it, they will certainly earn more than us and aren’t being laughed at by the whole footballing world like we are.
Yes we were truly crap against Milan, but be honest, our players just aren’t good enough, you can’t get rid of players like Adebayor, Gallas, Toure, Clichy, Fabregas and Nasri and replace them with Squillaci, Park, Chamakh, Benayoun, Santos and Jenkinson. And then expect to beat AC Milan, only a complete mad man would think that, enough said.
I honestly think Wenger plays players out of position and that’s why the likes of Walcott are rubbish, look at Cesc since he left, second top goalscorer at Barca, and surprise, surprise, no injuries.
Now apart from falling gates and disgruntled bloggers like me, you only have to read the newspapers to realise that this team Wenger has assembled is clearly not good enough.
So as he hasn’t the humility to leave the club, he has no choice other than to put this mess right. Yesterday Eden Hazard said this…
…’There are several clubs that interest me in England and Arsenal is really a part, of course, it’s always more fun when the football is beautiful. In addition, at Arsenal, there is a French coach and French players, as well as my compatriot Thomas Vermaelen’
So now he’s come out and said it, we need to go and tie him up with some kind of deal, agree a fee, stick it in a box and bury it in the garden. That could be done, there are ways around the window rules and we have a big enough legal team that could work something out.
Bargain basement players don’t work, buying Park alone should be a sackable offence, the money he has cost us in wages to get 90 minutes of football in 7 months is scandalous, to extend the contract of Djourou is just madness, but nothing is done and Wenger is never questioned, someone on the Arsenal board needs to explain that to me, and also why Man City are jealous of us.
When I watched that disgraceful performance and Wenger’s inability to get off his backside and shout, a part of me was just numb, if the board and the manager don’t care, why on earth do I, and maybe, just maybe this performance will either finally get Wenger sacked, or it will get him to start getting what we need.
He can’t keep blaming lack of money when he dishes out contracts to Park and Djourou, and to have a salary bill not far off of ManU’s is beyond belief.
I hope we beat Sunderland of course I do, I desperately want to stuff the spuds as well, but for the first time in my supporting career, and that goes back to the days of Bertie Mee, I don’t think we will.
And that is what? 7 barren years of Wenger, culminating with a contract extension for Djourou and watching the game at the San Siro with that same player gifting Milan 2 goals, said it all really.
And if you find that negative, go and blame Wenger, because unless he acts and starts getting the Hazard’s teed up, then we will lose our best players again this summer, what’s worse for Arsenal though, is they’ll lose the fans as well.
If they can see the empty spaces now, then they must know what they have to come, to have an owner that has several other clubs is not having an owner, it’s having a collector. I bet he didn’t lose any sleep on Wednesday night, I did.
Kroenke and Gazidas need to go, get Usmanov in, bring Dein back and buy in some proper players, and if Wenger won’t do that, then get rid of him too.
The spuds have got some American giant sniffing around, if that deal happens, they’ll get a shiny new stadium and the money to buy players as well, happy days. Don’t worry though, we have a sustainable model.
Apparently Wenger did his nut at the players after the Milan game and the Telegraph has said he is threatening a clear out, my arse he is, he is once again blaming someone other than himself, well he’s running out of people to blame, I expect when he finally decides he wants to leave, he blame Le-Grove, for all the pressure.
We told you in the summer to have a clear out, you didn’t and now you want one, what a joke, another lost season. It can’t always be someone else’s fault Arsene, man up stop acting like a big girls blouse.
Hazard has put his stake in the ground Arsenal, go and do something about it, do the same with Goetze, Podolski, M’Via and the best centre back money can buy and tell Robin sorry mate, you can stay. Maybe then we’ll have a decent team. And do it on the first day of the window, camp out on their doorsteps.
