I am having a terrible week everybody. TERRIBLE. Sad thing about having a terrible week in a foreign country is all you have to support you is YOUR FUCKING BLOG COMMUNITY. Love you guys. Keep being the best kind of digital friends.
What I do take solace in is this… Wenger is probably having a worse time than me at the moment. Comical Ali was let out of his bunker, ready to take on the press. Asked whether he’d announce his new deal soon, he said this:
“What you ask me is to score own goals”
NO ONE ASKED YOU TO DO THAT. Anyway, it’s clear he’s not going to announce his deal until, you know, he actually signs it. So stop wasting questions about it and actually take him to task on the football.
The manager thinks Alexis is going to stay on at the club and now the narrative is starting to switch up… because it’s about what his agent can agree. Man, I can’t make my mind up here, what is REALLY going on. Why would you pay £300k a week to a player who is ‘lazy’, disruptive, and uncontrollable?
I mean, I know why. Because we have next to no hope of signing a better player if he goes. Wenger needs Sanchez to sign on and let’s be fair, he needs a coup like this. I just hope we don’t get desperate and go all Rooney on this and give him a forever deal and right to stink out the club or shit in the physios parking space.
Crazy thing is this… his comments don’t really lend themselves to the notion it’s just about money.
“Looking at everything I’ve done in my career as a footballer, at all the titles, I believe that what’s hugely important is motivation,” “If a footballer is well motivated and has various things to motivate him every day, he will keep achieving his goals.
“If a footballer is well motivated and has various things to motivate him every day, he will keep achieving his goals.”
Proper footballers don’t give a f*ck about the money. You want to be the best at what you do, and if you are, then the cash will follow. I just don’t understand how he’ll convince himself that signing on for us will motivate him? He’s a brat with this team and he’s not learning anything. He certainly won’t win a title with us for as long as Wenger is here.
In better news, Wenger seems to be making some good decisions when it comes to Elneny, a player who looked very promising last season, but is getting the Carlos Vela cold shoulder. The manager had this to say on the Egyptian.
‘He gives us fluency,’
‘Elneny is a continuity player who is a generous player and wants to help the team.’
He can pass, he has an engine, he does the dogs body work and works well next to Xhaka. Don’t mess around, give him more games. So much better than Coquelin. It’ll be telling whether Wenger gives him a game against Palace. Remember, Wenger needs 6 points in the next two games, then he’ll get his ‘NO CHANGES NEEDED’ clause which gives us a great chance to do even worse next season.
Finally, I’ll leave you on this. I’m can’t find the source to corroborate, but the very fact I could full well believe it, is telling.
“If you take the first 45 minutes of the 2 games, we were qualified. But we went out in an emphatic way”
Right, that’s all I have. SEE YOU TOMORROW. x
