WHERE WERE YOU WHEN WENGER DROPPED A CRAZY?
That’s what your kids will ask, because yesterday, something must have snapped in Wenger’s head because he dropped a £20m bid for none other than Leicester City superstar… Jame ‘Chat shit, get banged’ Vardy.
Take a moment there. Please. Let it soak in.
This isn’t a joke either. If we’re publicising this, it means details have been discussed and agreed with the player. Same thing happened with Suarez, except we got the release clause wrong. This time, Ranieri has admitted we’re on this one.
This signing has so many interesting ramifications.
Wenger is all up in the short-terms face. No messing around. He’s in a hurry to win the league for once. I haven’t seen a signing this short-term since… well, Sir Alex dropped £24m for the ageing, yet supremely talented Robin Van Persie. The greatest and most short-term signing of his career.
Make no mistake, this signing is selfish. This is Arsene thinking about himself. This is him telling the fans… ‘I’ve had enough of myself’, you want the winner back, here he is. I love that. What’s the point in having cash if you don’t spend it!
Wenger is thinking about earning a new contract. He wants to stay on. He knows the club can only let him stay on if the fans are in love with him. 2 rounds of Wenger loving songs at the end of a season didn’t make up for the empty seats in the ground and disappointing the sponsors who aren’t dropping mega money with us like they are or were with United.
Would I like a better striker? Sure. Wouldn’t we all. Am I 100% sure Vardy is going to make us party? No, not at all. But look, he was a football terrorist this year. He has hustle, he has composure, he works and works and works. The quality of his goals was both varied and spectacular. He’s a machine and I love his attitude. If Ramsey is middle class, this guy is as working class as the come.
OMG, what the hell are we doing here? Addressing all our problems, early. THIS IS AMAZING.
We’re baking flexibility into our starting 11. Vardy brings the power and pace PLUS the clinical finishing. We have a very powerful midfield that can be pinned by Xhaka, Elneney and Coquelin. The if you have three behind the forward, you have incredible amounts of flexibility.
I understand that Arsenal are going hard for Mkhitaryan of Dortmund, he apparently wants us and we want him. He’s a spectacular player, and an incredibly hard worker, plus, he can play right across the front three and he scores and contributes with big numbers. Then you look at Iwobi, Ozil, Sanchez, Theo… well, it’s looking like a pretty devastating forward line with the protection and smarts we’ve lacked at the back.
We’ll also be signing a centre back as well.
I think we’ll be losing Gibbs, Debuchy, Chambo and Joel Campbell. All kind of unneccessary, the two English boys lacking the right mentality to make it at Arsenal at this stage of their careers.
Wenger finally doing what he’s supposed to be. He’s taking risks, he’s thinking about the now and he’s desperately trying to prove to the fans that he has what it takes to make us great again.
I’ll take on the Gazidis comments a little bit later on!
