The Arsene Wenger international break propaganda machine has clicked into overdraft. That he needs to earn even more money at his age on his salary shows how much the man lusts for money. Even more than money? Power. Listen to this carry on when talking about the famous summer review.
“We sit down at the end of every season & see where we go from there. I have a 2-year contract & will always try to (reach) the end of it. But I always have the honesty to sit down with BoD & to see where we go from there. If I see no progress, we can terminate it.”
Can I just zoom in on something?
‘If I see no progress, we can terminate it’
He actually runs the club. A massive bitch slap to our neutered CEO. He’s confirming the horror rumours of Honigstein and Laurens… he is actually the one who decides the outcome of his review. Arsene Wenger is marking his own scorecard, and he’s dropping this in his interview with BEin to shut you the fuck up. And to shut Ivan and his band of merry men up as well.
That my friends is why Arsenal fans don’t turn up at The Grove. That is why fans hope we’ll lose all our games until the end of the season. The man is absolute poison.
Anyone who thinks he’s going to be looked back on fondly when he leaves might want to review that notion. The last time he produced anything of interest was 15 years ago. He’ll be remembered as a man who abused his reputation to hang on and ruin everyone’s football experience. I’ve had pops of fun, the FA Cup’s have been great, but be real… have you really enjoyed the gushing river of predictable averageness that’s surrounded each season for his post-greatness tenure?
I haven’t. There’s so little joy in the Arsenal experience these days. Watching a madman steer your club ever further into realms of Liverpool like mediocrity is sad to watch.
We kind of knew where this would head. Wenger has 8 or so pretty easy games, he’ll probably decapitate Jose Mourinho when we play his sorry team at home and he’ll no doubt make a heroic effort of not winning the Europa League.
Our CEO is gutless, we’ve witnessed this for years. Josh K is likely the same as his dad. How utterly miserable.
Well, that’s if Laurens and Rapha are correct. They tend to be. So, you know, don’t get your hopes up. Wenger had more to say on his future…
“Yes, of course [I want to manage after Arsenal], as long as I have the physical strength and the desire to do it. I know that depends on my physical status and how well I am mentally. It’s a decision I’ll have to make at some stage.”
“At the moment I live in the present and I just want to do as well as I can for my club and I don’t worry too much what happens to me.”
There’s always the hope that he’ll pack it in of his own accord, but that’ll only happen if the fans turn on him. No chance we’ll protest him if he wins all his final games. We’ll be singing his name in the ground, doubling down on our long-term history of Stockholm syndrome.
“You don’t stay 22 years at a club the stature of Arsenal without a total complete commitment and the sacrifice of your life.
“That will not change today until the end of the season, until the end of my contract, if I can I will do that. After I don’t know what I will do.”
… and we finish on a biblical crescendo of the Lord Jesus Wenger, giving his life for the greater good of the world.
Wenger’s talk of sacrifice is both embarrassing and completely devoid of self-awareness. The man is dropping £10m a year and he talks about sacrifice. Try working in a factory for 15 hours a day, or being a nurse, or having a really fucking boring job in front of a spreadsheet using a Windows 1998 operating system. Working in football is a massive indulgence, the only sacrifice you make is a selfish one.
Anyway, enough bitterness. If our club go down the path of ‘let Wenger decide’, we’ll have absolutely no recourse as usual. Everyone at the club stays rich as hush money. We are the forgotten child to the LA Rams… who, by the way, are hoovering up the cream of the crop in the offseason. Unreal. Not only that, Stan’s stadium is going to cost more than $4billion. We’re a portfolio piece, maybe used as leverage to fund that deal with the banks. I wish we could just boycott the club to prove a point, but the English don’t operate that way.
Right, that’s me done. Happier times tomorrow.
