Morning everyone, just a quick post today as I has stuffs to be dun.
John Henry has come out and slammed down our bid for Suarez. He’s not going anywhere for footballing reasons. The same footballing reasons we sold Robin last year? Maybe not. He says it’s too late to find a replacement. To be fair, it’s unlikely Liverpool could replace him anywhere in Europe at the moment.
So, we either take that at face value, or we take it as a way of Liverpool driving his price up! Liverpool have a history of saying they won’t sell… then selling. So do Arsenal. So do United. So it might not be worth throwing in the towel yet.
What it does show you is that our summer is hanging in the balance. The alternative is now at Napoli. I’m not sure if Rooney is still on the cards…but we’re in big trouble if Suarez can’t move.
Our summer hasn’t really had the chance to be a shambles, because by the looks of things. We’ve only tried to land a striker. Which, though admirable… is a bit embarrassing because thus far, we’re no closer to anyone.
The plan seems to be ‘wing it’… which, is a plan at least, but not one you’d associate with a manager who coins in £7.5m a year. The man is an absolute joke. I mean, honestly, are we really at this point in the summer, 30 players down, with £10m more cash than we had at the start of the window… with £400k in spare wages?
Yes we are.
Wenger really is a man who cares only for his own ego. Because a summer like this is about no one else, other than him. Power corrupts. Age takes its toll. The two combined has us in this mess.
Ivan should be taking more of a lead. He said he trusts the manager to make the right decisions on the squad. Well, when he’s making no decisions. Shouldn’t you step in?
Yes. Yes you should.
