Well, what the bloody hell can you say about Vardy? He’s away with England and all he can think about right now is England, where he’s gonna get his next Red Bull and how he can smuggle chewing tobacco into the dressing room…
He can’t think about anything else. HE CAN’T.
Anyway, Wenger reckons he’s saying NO.
Can you believe this? I mean I can to a degree. I want to bemoan his lack of ambition, but jeez, he’s with the Champions. I want to bemoan personal ambition, but he probably thinks he can win another title where he is.
The big question Arsenal need to answer is why he’s said no?
It can’t be cash, because we have plenty of that. So what is it? Does Jamie Vardy not see a bright future under Arsene Wenger? Have the years out in the wilderness not addressing key issues finally caught up with a manager who, let’s face it, is likely facing a double blow with Mikki flirting heavily with United?
Is the harsh reality that Arsenal aren’t part of the elite roster these days?
Well, we’ll have to wait and see. Banter that someone suggested we’ll now chase down the younger, far better Lewandowski. But again, why would he come to Arsenal even if we doubled his wages?
Maybe we’ll look at Sturridge? Maybe we’ll look at someone we’ve never heard of? Maybe we’ll just do what we do every summer and give up at the first failure. Wenger has rarely been the signer of super elite players, he’s more the type that fashions brilliance… he needs to get back to a bit of that if he can’t have what he wants.
I just pray the plan B people say we have is going to get powered into action.
Also, absolute double banter on toast if the rumours about giving Wenger a 3 year deal are true. We should at the very least not have a deal on the table until we’ve seen what the manager can do with the summer. From what I was told, that’s actually the case and the rumours of the deal are a nonsense… but again, we’ll see.
I think we all just need to pull our heads out of the doom bucket. Give the summer a chance. No one else is making magic happen at the moment. Conte isn’t even in London, he’s managing another team. Jose has made one signing, Pep has made one signing… I mean, a long way to go. At the very least, we can take solace that we have seen the makings of a plan and it involves signing someone who is fast and clinical.
BUT WE HAVE SEEN THIS BEFORE.
No, calm down… it’s happening this summer. I can feel it in my bones. Kind of.
OVER AND OUT. xx
