Story goes like this…
Le Grove raise theory around Wenger not being the man who signed WELBZ as a bit of joke centred around the more serious question of Wenger’s silence on the matter.
Internetz goes totally mental.
Arsenal PR steams in gives exclusives to journo’s and bloggers saying Wenger was on the blower to WELBZ agent.
Everyone smugly satisfied the theory I had was a incorrect…
THEN WENGER SPEAKS ON WELBZ
“If I stayed at my home, Welbeck would not be here…that is the truth”
The PR machine gob smacked
‘… but… but… but… Arsenal told us this wasn’t the case. We dedicated contentz to dispel the evil Le Grove theory, for WHAT!’
Yeah, the manager really threw a lot of people under the bus with that little pearler.
So there we have it people, Wenger has gone on the record to say that if he was in the country, WELBZ wouldn’t have signed. I mean, what a f*cking bizarre comment to make. Whatever the reasoning behind it, it gives you a bit of insight into why he hadn’t said anything for 8 days… which outside the conspiracy theory, was the reason I was interrogating the matter.
I guess we’ll have to wait for the book…
Point is, whoever signed him has done a good job. My guess, and let’s be brutally honest, my guessing is on fire this week… is that WELBZ was put forward by Arsene with a price tag, United or WELBZ might have asked for more cash and Ivan / Dick just did the deal . I think Wenger is saying he wouldn’t have signed because he had a difference of opinion on something.
Bad news is this… Wenger might start withYaya Sanogo if he’s not happy. That really would cap it all off. Hopefully he can see past sulking and do the right thing for the team.
What’s done is done… so let’s move on. I won’t find all the people who said my line of fire was ‘Daily Mail’ and smugly show them what the manager said on the record.
Additional news is that Rambo has a chance. Ozil, Gibbs and Arteta are all fit. So we have a pretty strong squad going into the game. Wenger also said Theo is 3 weeks from full training. So as I mentioned, talk of a Spurs return is laughable.
Bad news with Ozil being fit is Wenger might be tempted to dump him on the wing… Ozil chasing Zabaleta for 90minutes. Imagine the horror show. If that’s how we line up, I’d say our chances of securing a victory are substantially lower.
We’ll see though… I hope a bit of tactical nous is shown and we actually have a think about what we’re up against. We’re not good enough to wing it… shame of it is, with a bit of thought, we really could be contenders. We have a good team packed with team players, with tactics and better prep we could be something special.
Right, not much more from me, I’m off to solve some more mysteries.
Remember kids, question everything.
