Hello, where are my new Arsenal players?

by & filed under News Review.

Word up people! Yeah, things just went east side American slang on yo ass. Ya feel me?

Just joking. I’m still the raw middle England character you knew before.

So, today, is another news day.

We enter August with no signings whatsoever. Now, obviously the web is about slamming people, and, despite the window having another 30 days to go, I’m being slammed. Ivan’s dasterdly plan to conquer the biggest moaner in the land has obviously worked and I’ve been hook lined and sinkerered

… but wait, you mean, if nothing happens… I can go back to making this site a place of misery and doom?

Really?

I can come back with twice the venom as before? Like, literally, melt the Internet with misery and proclamations of the end?

I know… Of course I can. Ivan and his team have gained nothing by getting me onside for a month. It’s also worth noting 95% of my summer chat comes from someone else I’ve been speaking to for 4 years. So still, despite the lack of noise, I’m keeping the faith. Or two relationships are over…

The main reason for the on-going positivity is because if you’re Arsene Wenger armed with £100m and £500k a week in wages… you really can’t be coming out of a summer without any players. If you do… it kind of means you’re finished. Attracting talent is a major part of the job. If we’re not doing that, or worse, Wenger has gone cold on the idea, it’ll be curtains for him. Big clubs need progressive managers. If Wenger has lost the fight, move on garçon…

Anyway, bidding £40m for Suarez is a start. That story has plenty to go. The rest of the squad still has a chance as well. So lets keep the faith, kick up a fat fuss at The Emirates at the weekend (and we know the players will support that as well) and hope for better days.

One more thing… Arsenal are the most long term club in the world. I’m really not sure why people think Ivan Gazidis would put so much effort into bringing people like me onside, just for a few months respite.

Simply put, that’s really not a social PR strategy… and beleive me, bitchy bloggers are a massive irritant, I’m learning that first hand this month.

I guess the other thing in the back of my mind is that I don’t think 4 players makes us contenders… mainly because it doesn’t solve Wengers managerial weaknesses at the highest level. Those were present in the prime times. They’re even more obvious nowadays. Maybe a new manager with £100m is a tastier proposition?

Most of you can’t believe that Wenger is tactically weak, ‘Oh but Pedro, he put a striker on when we were losing 2-0 in the 81st minute’, I mean obviously, there’s a level of thought that goes on…  but the club are still in the dark ages compared to others on tech, preparation and post game recuperation.

How’s that for a bit of positivity this morning?

Love Pedro. Xxx

    They must be trolling us for a bit of a joke though right??

    They cannot possibly be considering starting the season with this shitshack of a squad?

    Wenger said we lacked numbers last season, so he sells 5 squad players and buys 1 child… good logic.

  2. Oh Theo Theo!

    N5 – you must admit that gats adds a certain amount of rustic charm.

    Shamefully, he makes me laugh at his mentalness…

  3. Ash79

    that youtube link to the hangout is now litterred with abuse in the comments section hahahaha

    they wont show that to Arsene…

    *hangout ends*
    AW – i thought that very well
    Cunnexttohim – yes, very pertinent questions i thought arsene

  4. N5

    Ha Ha OTT, I think Rustic Charm is one word for it, uneducated fuckwit is more realistic.

  5. CH30

    The way I see it Wenger might just as well spend 50 or 55 million on Suarez. Not that I think he or any player really is worth it, but it’s what the market says.

    AND.. it really doesn’t matter if he pays too much for Suarez, cos more money (with Puma etc) is coming in next summer again! So spending the money on Suarez he will still have 15-20 m. for a DM or DF + GK.

    That way he can continue to build the squad next season with new money!

    So no idea what the F#*”# he is waiting on… so SPEND.. there is no other player left on Suarez level.

    Btw, why didn’t we take Schwartzer for free? As a backup.. Now Chelski did!

  6. DUIFG

    This summer has been absolute farce. Even if he manages to bring I players now they won’t have time to settle and everybody will be talking about why we dithered this summer.

    At this point if giroud gets injured we have no recognised second striker. That’s awful, not going to even raise the issue of giroud being shit himself.

  7. Ash79

    Spurs running around like mad signing up players and OGL decides he has spare time to do this.. another PR shambles, constantly sending out the wrong message. This basically underlines that the club has ZERO regard for UK fans. Everything they do is geared towards other markets who aren’t quite up to speed with the BS that Arsene and the club have been peddling for the past 8 years.

    Treat us with utter contempt. They would happily we didn’t exist, they don’t need us.

  8. Samir masri

    Stewart Robson got fired for being a realist. It’s tough getting someone like him or any us asking direct or indirect questions about the club. All of them seem to make wenger’s life easier as it is.

  9. N5

    “At least I have 1 more shirt than you ever will, N5 u absolute wanker.”

    Do you mean statue? otherwise I’m not really sure what your response means.

    To be honest gats the only replies you ever get on here are of distaste and anger, so I think I know who really is the wanker.

  10. Romford Pele

    “This basically underlines that the club has ZERO regard for UK fans. Everything they do is geared towards other markets who aren’t quite up to speed with the BS that Arsene and the club have been peddling for the past 8 years.Treat us with utter contempt. They would happily we didn’t exist, they don’t need us.”

    I agree.

  11. Oh Theo Theo!

    CH30 – what is wrong with you???

    “Not that I think he or any player really is worth it, but it’s what the market says. ”

    That’s the whole point. When Trevor Francis went at a million people at the time said it was a waste of money and he wasn’t worth it.

    Prices go up every year people. It’s called price inflation and it keeps happening. In 10 years time the average player will cost £50m.

    Just the way life is. If you want quality you pay. If you don’t, you don’t.

    And we don’t.

    But is Suarez worth £50m? If he gets 30 goals for the next 4 years, then yes of course he is.

    Alternative is Giroud’s 20 odd goals a year against shite opposition.

  12. DUIFG

    I’m so sick of wenger, doesn’t spend in January as he claims prices are inflated. Ok dso I know what I will do, tell every prick in the world how much money I want to spend then I will wait till the eve of the new season when clubs have no time to get adequate replacements in and nlow my load. I’m sure prices should be reasonable then. Joke.

  13. gats

    N5 as long as I know your an absolute wanker then its fine. Also I was talking about the shirt I have on your mums titties. You know the shirt you weso interested last week, and kept asking me questions about it.

  14. Romford Pele

    “N5 as long as I know your an absolute wanker then its fine. Also I was talking about the shirt I have on your mums titties. You know the shirt you weso interested last week, and kept asking me questions about it.”

    This dude can’t be older than 15.

  15. N5

    N5 as long as I know your an absolute wanker then its fine. Also I was talking about the shirt I have on your mums titties. You know the shirt you weso interested last week, and kept asking me questions about it.

    You have a good memory considering that wasn’t me, I think it was Keyser who you said you had a shirt from when you were 6 which was 5 years ago or something but I had nothing to do with that conversation, so again you show yourself to have the intellegance of a spud!

    ps mum jokes in 2013 jesus bruv move on will you!

  16. Oh Theo Theo!

    Romford – I think gats has a certain crude, poetic charm in his regard for N5’s mother’s breasts. Although I am not sure why he would store it on N5’s mum’s cleavage. But each to their own, I suppose.

  17. Romford Pele

    “Romford – I think gats has a certain crude, poetic charm in his regard for N5′s mother’s breasts. Although I am not sure why he would store it on N5′s mum’s cleavage. But each to their own, I suppose.”

    Lolololol, kids these days.

  18. N5

    Your not kidding Romford, he’s the statue guy, an absolute remidial of the highest order!

    The fact I’ve never spoke to him about any shirt doesn’t seem to matter to him.

    I really don’t understand why people like him follow Arsenal, the way he speaks to people that follow the same club as him is just laughable its like we’re the enemy! that coupled with the fact he was dropped on his head numerous times at birth make for a bad poster!

  19. Ash79

    So you wanna be hardcore
    With your hat to the back, talkin bout the gats in your raps
    But I can’t feel that hardcore appeal
    that you’re screamin, baby I’m dreamin

  20. Herkules

    I would so much rather save the money and let the new manager spend it next Summer. It will be a boring Season but it will be worth it to never have to hear Wenger again

  21. N5

    Agreed Dannyboy, this is what Wenger has done to people, it’s like the fallout from Chernobyl how the explosion created genetic mutations, well gats is just a symptom of the Wenger explosion, I should pity him really as he no longer even remembers there is an Arsenal and where there was once a personality there is now only hate! Gats is a sign of things to come, were doomed, doooooooooooooooomed.

  22. Radio Raheem

    On paper we shouldn’t finish in the top 4 but you can count on spurs to crumble at some point.

    With Suarez we’ll certainly finish in the top 4 irrespective of what happens at spurs.

  23. Kiyoshi Ito

    Where is Jeff..?
    The poetic Jeff..I miss his posts..

    Not the big Geoff-the blogger..

    The Jeff,that paints the scenario of Arsenal & Arsene,all so neatly..

    Jeff,I await your post on the Mr Wankstein Google Hangover!!

  24. Ash79

    Here we go, same old BS arsene!!!!!!!!

    ‘We are still working on improving our squad,’ the Frenchman told fans through an Emirates sponsored ‘Google Hangout’. ‘But we have a base of young players, players who started in the Premier League with us, like Wojciech Szczesny, arl Jenkinson, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.
    ‘That is why what we do is unique. Look at our competitors, who in the last 10 years has started for them in the Premier League and is still there now?
    ‘I believe my squad have a special bond and that they are on their way upwards, they are not over the hill, they will get better. I am confident we will be stronger next season.’
    Wenger is in a rare position heading into the new season with the three clubs who finished above Arsenal last season all changing managers.
    ‘It gives me a slight advantage because I know my squad well,’ the 63-year-old explained. ‘It will take my rivals some time to know theirs, except Jose Mourinho, who knows some of his from before.
    ‘But we should focus on our strengths rather than expect any weakness from the others.
    ‘It is important to have strong start and raise belief. Last season when we lost Robin van Persie we had a skeptical environment around the club. We need the crowd to be behind the team.’

  25. Dannyboy

    hahaha Ash,

    United – Giggs,Ferdinand
    Chelsea – Terry, Lampard

    I can’t even be arsed to list anymore… Wenger is a fucking cretin.

  26. Dannyboy

    been stuck on that Aztec level for about a week… Fucking laser guns coming through walls and shit…..

  27. Jim Lahey

    “Last season when we lost Robin van Persie” …. Oh did you lose him Arsene? Have you checked behind the couch? That where I look when I lose things…

    Oooooh you mean.. When you sold him to our fiercest rivals to help them win the title? Is that what you mean maybe?

  28. gambon

    Wenger spouting his usual bollocks

    “who has strated for them in the premier league and been their 10 years?”

    So who has for us Arsene? If you remember rightly you sell players off the second they attain value.

    Szczesny – Made his debut in 2010
    Fabianski – Made his debut 2007/8
    Sagna – Nope, made his debut 2007/8
    Jenkinson – Nope
    Koscielny – Made his debut 2010/11
    Mertesacker – Was part of your “3 days of panic” in 2011
    Vermalen – Made his debut 2009/10
    Gibbs – Made his debut 2007/8
    Monreal – Clearly not
    Arteta – Panic buy in 2011
    Wilshere – Debut in 2010
    Ramsey – Debut in 2008/9
    Diaby – Debut in 2006
    Cazorla – Clearly not
    Podolski – Clearly not
    Gervinho – Clearly not
    Walcott – Debut in 2006
    Chamberlain – Clearly not
    Giroud – Clearly not

    So Arsene, let me guess this right. You are condemning our rivals for not having 10 year players in their team, when we dont either?

  29. Relieable sauce

    Locally based fans & the long term supporters are the last thing the management or owner care about, we’re not needed at all in the grand scheme of things.

    Alarm bells should have been ringing for all football fans when we saw Wimbledon FC moved out to Milton Keynes & renamed as MK dons without any consultations with fans as well.

    Cardiff (Bluebirds?) have changed their home strip to red from blue because of Chinese superstition ffs.
    Another team recently has been moved to a different county without any consideration or consultation with fans, Notts county maybe???

    Concratulations to Manchester United fans, who today secured a ruling that if the ground were to be put up for sale, they would be able to bid for it on the grounds of its importance to the community.
    The club are appealing it i believe, which is a bit of a worrying sign. Fair play to them, OT “The theatre of dreams” is their home & they feel they should have some control in its destiny.
    We sold our home of course…now why did we do that again?…I seem to remember it being for fine & noble reasons…

  30. kc

    If news came out that Wenger had a clause in his contract that said AFC had to pay him 20 million if he got the sack, I would believe it instantly. That’s how bad of a manager he has been. Nobody else could get away with this without getting shit canned.

  31. Dannyboy

    Wenger is back to looking frail and gaunt like he did during our tough period last season…

    He looks like a man completely bereft of ideas. Almost as if he’s thought ‘I completely refuse to pay Suarez’s asking price… but there is no-one out there who is even close to him that is available… What do I do now?’

  32. Ash79

    we should all chip into a “fuck off arsene” fund. soon as we hit a set amount he must retire and he can have the fund.

    day dreaming again..waiting for 17.30…

  33. Dannyboy

    I actually want him to start saying shit like ‘You know, buying players isn’t like a Supermarket’ and shit like that… just cos it is more entertaining than the current sham.

  34. Dannyboy

    hahaha imagine in tomorrows pre EC press conference,

    ‘So Arsene, you’ll be facing Higuain tomorrow.. just how close were you to signing him?’

    ‘We were never on the case, I didn’t know that Real Madrid wanted to sell him…’

  35. arsenal-flavour

    the question is why have we signed noone… we are back from tour…

    Everyday i google arsenal transfer signings

    I even type into google arsenal sign suarez or arsenal sign ozil(willing it to happen)

  36. follow the money

    the google hangout is a waste of time lads, as is everything that comes out of Arsenal.com. There hasn’t been such complete propaganda, lies and spin, since Goebbels

  37. Rrobbins

    I cannot believe they are screwing around with time that would acclimate new players for a season run for title. The justifications of they can’t force sales; they can’t organize their efforts for a holding midfielder; a first team keeper; and a world class striker, blows the minds of the fan base. They are so dysfunctional for competing on the pitch under this so called guise of fiscal prudence. DAMN. This is their definition of management.

  38. Moanalisa

    I remember reading a columm by mark lawrensen, where he said manure had won the title by – hook or by crook, in stadiums where no one was watching.

    I said ‘what! this nigg& is a goner’.

  39. follow the money

    Wenger seems to be obsessed with the idea of this British core now. Listen to the google hangout, he clearly thinks they will stay loyal to the club because of the faith he showed in them. What a deluded old fuck. Players play for money and trophies. That’s the reality. He’s obviously been incredibly hurt by all the players leaving the last few years, and everything he’s been doing recently has been geared around not building a winning team, but a team that won’t leave him. If that means having substandard players, then us millions of fans will just have to deal with it. Wenger OUT

  40. GUNNER786

    Wenger is messing about with his cheesy grin on this ‘Hangout’ thing while Spurs are busy working hard at bringing quality players at WHL.

  41. brent

    This club is a joke. Wengerout. Need to buy soem top quality players. Suarez , fellaini. Just an influx of new players. The whole club has gone stale. It doesn’t matter if they’re actually worth what we pay for them. The club has been holding out on buying top talent. They owe it to the fans to make some top signings. Its just gotten to the point where any intelligent fan is dumbfounded as to what is going on at this club.

  42. GUNNER786

    This question is for the Non-AKBs only

    How will you celebrate on the day when Wenger leaves as Arsenal manager?

  43. Wengerites be damned !

    Wenger is a tactical clown and I also believe we won’t win sod all under him even with top class players. That’s why I think it would be best if he continues to dither on transfer and brings no top player. It’ll help people on the fence to make up their minds and maybe some AKBs can start to question Wenger’s failed policies.

  44. Guninurback

    Damn is it just me or did Ash go all Biggy up in this shit at the top of the page?

    Damn Le grove even be flexin its Hardcore appeal these days, look grim mothafockers Wengers watching 😉

    LAST WINDOW we announced the signing of pod caz and giroud on august 7th!

    I think we may have secret signings that will be announced in 6 days.

    So Flava, whatever it is that you are taking would you mind sharing a bit?

  49. Rocky87

    Arsene talking about the unique situation at Arsenal he has created.

    Arsene the only unique situation you have created is the fact that the board still supports your nonsense after 8 trophy less years!

    “LAST WINDOW we announced the signing of pod caz and giroud on august 7th!I think we may have secret signings that will be announced in 6 days.”

    Not.Sure.If.Serious.

  51. Jeff

    Just got in from work and switched on the Google (YouTube) thing with Wenger. I can’t stop laughing. This is complete bunkum. Questions like this are childish and insulting.

    I can’t quite work out the motive but it sounds very silly and absurd. The whole thing seems to imply everything is so fine and dandy that all there is left to talk about is the manager’s favourite destination and player. It is so obvious that the questioners and the questions have been hand-picked. Needless to say, that was a complete waste of time.

  52. Santi Claus

    All potential signings are big enough to want to wait and see if we get into ECL proper otherwise they would look like mugs saying they are leaving for ECL and we don’t qualify. This particularly counts for Suarez. The window closes after so they have time. It also shows up their character not being willing to take a chance or help us qualify.

  53. goona

    Tits…..

    Secret signings???? …….We have more chance of winning the Lottery this Friday without even having a bloody ticket!

    Some of those pathetic questions need to be used in anti-wenger chants to show it up for the mockery it was.

    Can’t say exactly what as it’s too specific, but it’s just bizarre behaviour from Wenger around the training ground.

    Wiltooooooord ‏@Wiltooooooord 31m
    @DLDN22 I mean as a serious question, not being disrespectful or taking the piss, do you thinking he’s losing it? I mean a medical problem?

    DC ‏@DLDN22 27m
    @Wiltooooooord I really hope not but I worry

    Well, I have been saying this for a while his behaviour in recent years has indicated there may be some mental illness taking a grip. It is quite sad to see, I certainly would rather he just retires now, because he will, guaranteed receive unprecented amounts of vitriol and abuse if we go into September with Yaya Sanogo and a British Core.

    I have seen before in older men, before the senility sets in they become very, very stubborn, like little children and I see this in Wenger.

    Just fucking go and live a life of luxury in your French estate instead of ruining the lives of every Arsenal fan with a free-thinking brain.

  56. arsenal-flavour

    Also its crazy to think, african/asian fans are insanely passionate arsenal supporters.

    I can see a situation in 5 years where Arsenal is only supported in third world countries and know one in England really cares for them.

    My lil brother who is 11 is an Arsenal supporter but it brings him no happiness, his friends who are arsenal supporters just sit around and complain and moan about arsenal when talking about arsenal, Its pretty depressing. Just shows the passion and love is draining out of the home fans.

    I remember being a boy and bragging and talking up Arsenal. I used to have arguments at school with man u fans and say how we are better and play better football.

    Alas I cannot say that now.

  57. Santi Claus

    Even Porto the easy option for shop window ECL and PSG etc will have more draw for these spoilt princes lol

    Jeff…

    Bunkum indeed!…

    …..Just when you thought our situation couldn’t get more dire Wenger comes out with this drivel. If we weren’t the laughing stock of world football we are now. What player in their right mind after watching that would want to work with him?

    Honestly who?

    Even Sunderland have more draw than us now with Di Canio and Swansea with Laudrup. These a poster players from a recent generation. And Mourinio Pelligrino have money a swagger. I think ManU will suffer in the same way I doubt anyone in Europe knows Gollum

  62. Santi Claus

    Arsenal operate like this. A guy goes to by a car. Offers 20k the salesman says Sir that car is 30k they say ok I’ll offer on thatcar 30k. But Sir that one is 40k. Why don’t you just offer 30k on the first one and it’s yours? No i wont bother now I’ll keep my own knackered car.

    honestly this fucking lot are bunch of fucking amateurs ,,, bring out a new kit to milk the fans, no new signings to go with it,, the emirates cup this weekend , no new signings ,
    fucking bunch of useless money grabbing bastards , the marketing staff and gazidis should hang there head in shame … Doing fuck all when every one else is signing players and improving and now the biggest piss take of all the fucking deluded one wants to sell us sagna as a centre back what a fucking disgusting joke..
    the propaganda wheels are spinning well now ,, the quote we will have a better squad with the younger players coming through is a sign to us that there will be no new players and that bastard will spend all his time taking care of himself ensuring he gets a nice new contact and a massive new pay rise …

    Wonga is a serial liar and a loser. What reason does he have to know what to spend the £100m we have available for the sole purpose of improving the squad?

    What the fuck does he think he is playing, why is every summer a fucking car-crash in slow motion for Arsenal. I have been saying for years Wonga has been refusing to spend the money and now finally the AKB’s are starting to realise it all.

    I hope we spend fuck all and Wenger gets rotten vegetables thrown at him.

    Before everyone goes into a meltdown, remember that the Emirates Cup is just a couple of days away. The competition is respectable so if our current squad does well, then it gives OLG’s “belief in my team” some credence. If the team bombs, the pressure on OLG will be excruciating. If the stories about BOD and Wenger tension are to be believed, then the EC should be a watershed moment for OLG. If they do bomb and nothing happens in the transfer market, then it will be proof that the whole set-up is rotten to the core and nothing can be done about it until:

    1. OLG decides to leave / retire
    2. Fan indifference leads to a hit in gate receipts, merchandise sales, and loss of commercial deals and SK decides to sell

    Let’s see what happens…

    I seem to remember being asked to have faith in youth about 6 or 7 years ago, it didn’t work then either. Proper clubs buy quality. We have to pander to Wenger’s ego… madness

  74. Goongoonergone

    Guys
    C’mon please!!!
    Give Wenger a break.
    Yeah … a flipping BREAK … from Arsenal.
    Damn idiot, spouting shit out of his mouth again…

    Wenger: “They will be better next year and that is why I am confident we will be stronger next season.’

    In Wenger’s defence it is fucking hot at the moment, perhaps the comment was made as a combination of sun stroke and dehydration – or on the other hand, maybe simply because he is bonkers.

    Times like this you realise the press aren’t as bad as people believe, even with all their deviousness they couldn’t have made that up!

    Did Sanogo have an agent when we signed him?
    It didn’t sound like it from the write up of their hotel meet.

    I imagine Wenger finds it very hard to deal with them.

  77. Paddy got up

    He looks frail again and twitchy. My hopes for the summer are up. Forget about transfers and all that I just want this French prat gone now.
    He nearly went in January and I think a bit more pressure and he will snap. His ego and the cash are the only thing keeping him there.
    Keep the pressure up folks..
    WENGER OUT
    EIE

    Ayre :
    “I wish I had £1 for everyone that’s stopped me in the street saying ‘make sure Luis stays’…..”
    ——————————
    Should have accepted Arsenal’s latest offer of £40000001, then he have the £1 !

  80. Harry Redknapp

    just walked past the gooner shop with my little lad, told the little cunt he aint havin a yellow kit till arsene spends some fukkin money i dont care if he has been good at school or not. i blame arsene for everything the future holds for the boy as of now.

  81. Ash79

    More I think about it, if ANR is correct then we could end up with a player that Arsene doesn’t want. We know how obstinate he is with team selection. Conceivable he would make it difficultbfor Suarez to play and of course he would favour his French project Giroud ahead of Luis.

  82. N1Goon

    If Wenger doesn’t like Suarez he can go fuck off to Senegal and have as many youth projects as he likes. He can go and meet Abou’s relatives in the hospital!

  83. RIPAFC

    I hope the stadium is empty on Saturday & Sunday
    It will be properly filled up with banana throwing tourist & AKBs

    Singing we love u wenger we do ohhh wenger we love u !!

    CUNTS

    CUNTS LIKE THEM WHY WE CAN’T GET RID OF THAT OTHER CUNT CUN CUNT CUNT CUNT

    ‘ We are still working on improving the squad but if we don’t add anyone we still have a strong squad’
