Lorik Cana signs for Sunderland for £5m. Wenger is a mug!

Can somebody please tell me why we didn’t make a move for this hard nut? This is just what we need FFS?

Right type of player, Right age and at the right price…What more did Wenger want?

No doubt in a few weeks wenger will come out and say he told Steve Bruce to sign him.

We need this type of player at Arsenal

How many times have we gone to places like Hull, Bolton, Stoke and got kicked off the park..We needed this type of player next to Cesc.

Wenger is a mug.

What the hell is he doing in this transfer window? Why SELL Adebayor for £25m and then bank the money? What is taking us so long in signing players.

This is a joke..I am telling you know that Arsenal can forget finishing in the top FIVE next season.

My Advice is ENJOY the champions league football next season and enjoy Cesc playing for Arsenal. Because we wont see them days again…

Every summer we have to put up with this bollocks. Wenger toys with us and says one thing and then lets us down. Im sick of this.

Well dont say i didnt warn you,  come the end of the season and we have finished the season 5th or worst and empty handed AGAIN. Cesc will leave..Cant say i blame him and we will have to put up with more crap from the “Wenger knows” crew who will say the same things.. “KEEP THE FAITH” Well sorry i lost the faith a long time ago. We have not won anything since 2005 and you muppets still think that this manager we have will come good. Cant you see that this manager we have cares about only about ONE thing..Its not winning titles or cups..its PROFIT and making money for the club.. If anything he should have been an accountant and not a football manager.

To hell with this… Im off to get drunk

Just look what we missed..

    I’ve never written a response to a blog before but some of the comments here have got my blood up a bit so here goes.

    Something strange has happened to a growing and increasingly vocal (if grammatically challenged) minority of arsenal fans in the past few years whoc appear to have lost touch with reality and forgotten that football is a sport where the difference between success and failure can boil down to a dodgy bit of turf.

    In an era when big spending clubs with passionate fans have found themselves relegated (Leeds / Newcastle) where owners are no longer guardians but are so wealthy they can afford to buy players for £15-20m and keep them on the bench (Tevez at Man U, Wright Phillips at Chelsea, Hleb at Barcelona, Sneider and Van De Vaart at Real Madrid) that we at Arsenal have a man who managed to keep Arsenal in the top four on a tight budget (unlike any other top four team), and play attractive football is nothing short of a miracle. But having become so used to beautiful football, some fans’ expecations are now so high they will never really be happy with the team or the manager.

    Name another manager that can unearth players like Clichy for £250k to replace an England left back. Arsene had to persuade his parents to let him play for us when his team was relegated to the French 3rd division. Arsene bought who can buy Song, Denilson and Diaby for less than the cost of Darren Bent, turned Henry into a legend and sold him for a profit and with his best years behind him. I don’t know such a manager. Bear in mind that had Perez had his way, Arsene would be at Real Madrid managing Kaka, Ronaldo and the rest but that Arsene turned that down.

    To those of you venting your spleens with frustration at not seeing so-called world class signings arrive, ask yourselves
    a) why you ‘support’ a club but are happy to do a character assasination on a manager being chased by Real Madrid
    b) who you have seen managing elsewhere that you think would be better
    c) what you were doing when you were 19 – 21 relative to youngsters like Denilson, Song and Bendtner and whether it’s in the interests of the team you claim to love to slate them week in week out for not being good enough
    d) whether fans of other clubs that have never been in the champions league write in to their fan sites and slate their managers / players every week like you do
    e) whether you’d rather have been a City fan for the past decade

    i agree man.. this article is spot on.. we need to win trophies not to generate profits in expense of potential trophies.. this is insane.. 5m is a steal for a player like cana.. if wenger dont buy a decent DM it will b worst then previous season n u can say goodbye to cesc next season.. it is not his fault, it is managers fault.. he needs to think abt the team rather then making profits.. he is a manager not BOD or owner of arsenal.. he should demand money rather then supporting them for making profits.. wenger dis is ur last chance.. last season u said “judge me in may” well we did n we were crap.. dont do this again.. we r losing our patience..this is it!

    Hopefully Cana will prove to be agood buy, as a Sunderland fan I hope he, and the signings to follow help us make the next step. As for “shit hole sunderland” you need to look around you, i’m currently in Afghanistan and thats better than London. There’s more chance of being killed there than out here

    ritesh – He was born in Yugoslavia and grew up in Switzerland. What an absolute silly comment you’ve just made. On the basis of your comment, why did Arsenal sign Hleb? He’s from Belarus who are arguably as bad as Albania!

    I’ll bet you haven’t been to an Arsenal game in your life and support Arsenal because you think it’s the “cool” thing to do. Little do you know you don’t have an ounce of passion running through your body for the gooners or football in general.

    You haven’t got a clue.

    Sunderland have a lot of money to spend at the moment, surprisingly to some…probably more than Arsenal.

    You must be shrooming. Wenger hasn’t shown bollocks in the transfer market??! Have you ever heard of Petit, Overmars, Theirry Henry even! These players were all relative unknowns, and played in different positions than the ones Wenger had introduced them into! You talk as though you’ve supported the club for a few-odd years, I say this because your writing ability is weak at best so you can’t be old enough to have seen how much Wenger has truly done for this club. Do some research, and educate yourself on AFC. Then maybe, just maybe, it’ll show you that Wenger is damn good at his job, he is a master in the transfer window (Arshavin for 17m was the coup of the decade) at both buying and selling, and his global network of scouts does not rely on YouTube to have found the likes of Kolo, Fabregas, Van Persie, Eduardo, etc. etc. Honestly. Think before you lose your head, let alone write this type of unsubstantiated nonsense.

    If wenger doesnt buy, have a pop sure, but we still have a good few weeks of transfer season to go. Considering Wenger does most of his business in this period anyway, we still have the hope he’ll bring someone in.

    But for the time being go and get your head shaved, a couple of dodgy earrings, and buy yourself a chelsea shirt – you are no better!

    Wenger still thinks that the present squad is good enough for them to challenge teams in the coming season and the champions league.Considering the amount of injuries we have I guess we have no substitute players. Inexperience would get us no where with these injuries especially our defensive side.Wenger is being a coward by only bringing in profits for the directors and not spending on players. To play competitive football he must strengthen the defense at least. Lets see what the next season brings us…I hope its joy.

  10. Arthur

    July 25, 2009 at 9:06 am

    You need to calm down a bit. Wenger will only buy if he can get better than he already has. Judging by the price and the fact that he is going to Sunderland i doubt Cana is better than Deniilson or Song, both would command a higher price than £5 million. It looks as though Eboue is going for £8+! Wenger wants quality not quantity.

  11. walter

    July 25, 2009 at 9:06 am

    I’ve seen this Cana play a lot of games for Marseille and apart from being booked at almost every game he also made a lot of mistakes.
    You don’t have to make up your mind on a few seconds on youtube.
    When you see him a whole game you will see he does nog give enough covering to the defence at Marseille.

    A bitter Arsenal fan committed suicicide in Nairobi, Kenya, when the gunners were battered out of the Champions League by Man Utd. To avoid a reccurence of such sucides, fans should accept reality that Arsene Wenger and the Arsenal Board are now cynical traders with MONEY and PROFITEERING as the sole objective.The fans paying huge sums to watch matches in anticipation of silverware are being “robbed” by an insensitive Manager and a greedy Board. Ironically, this miopic quest for profiteering will trigger a fincial implosion when Arsenal FC fail to attain Champions League soccer, come May 2010. it’s indeed a tragedy!!!!

    And let’s get something straight here, the one player that we need right now is Flamini, there is no more suitable Arsenal DM out there at the moment!!

    That said, the is are simple… Are we better or worse off than last year? I think we are slightly better to be honest. I think Wilshere, Barazite and Ramsey will start to get more of a starting berth and the entire Aebayor saga is balanced in our favour with the addition of Arshavin!

    I still don’t think we will win anything, but hey at least I am positive!!!

    Morning Gooners,

    Can’t help but see both perspectives here, this is probably due to the fact that as improved as they are as players both Song and Denilson (More so Song as Denilson never seems to get out of 2nd gear) seem in my personal opinion to lack any sort of bite, in what is arguably the toughest league in the world, and that’s excluding CC/FA/CL Cup games (Cardiff springs to mind, where admittedly every Arsenal player had an extremely poor game, but Song was nothing short of appalling). So would an aggressive player in mould of Cana not be a great addition to the team, I’ve not seen a great deal of him (Less the YouTube footage!!) but it seems he’s rarely shy when it comes to getting stuck in, and would therefore offer something different in a lengthy campaign?

    Last season I found myself having to eat Humble pie regarding the improved performances of Song in particular, as his range of passing is actually top draw, but always felt that although he has a good engine and tracks back effectively his distinct lack of tackling is always a concern.

    I’ve not even mentioned Diaby as I believe if he can increases his workrate and in turn address his defensive and attacking balance for the good of the team then maybe the Cana Argument will be an irrelevant one, but it’s a big ask as we’ve been here before, as his brilliance tends to be in flashes and often turns to mediocrity when played in the middle of the park (Totally wasted on the left).

    I truly hope that Wenger knows best.

    How come you are not coaching an elite European club team and Wenger is. Is it maybe because he might know just a little bit more about football, players, talent, and what Arsenal needs more than you? I’m sure Wenger has assessed the Cana situation and decided he isnt good enough. If he cost only 5m then it is not as if Wenger couldnt afford him, just that he didnt want him.

    You are the mug. Go support Chelsea or City where they throw money at whoever, whenever.

    Only one team can win the league and it hasn’t been us for a while, big deal? Alex ferguson nearly got the sack before he put the kids together and dominated for years.

    Lorik Cana IS NOT GOOD ENOUGH FOR ARSENAL which is why he went to sunderland, get a grip, if you want arsenal to start signing shit that you’ve based your opinion on because of youtube you deserve to support a team like spurs who sign overpriced shit to appease their fans.

    everytime i come on here it get’s worse, it’s negative dickheads like this that are making gooners look like fickle no clue, wallies.

    Get behind your team, THE ONLY ETHICAL TEAM LEFT or go and support chelsea until they fold

    Sinbad, you are seriously a dick.
    This is only a youtube video, meaning that people highlight Cana’s strong points. There not going to show him at his worst.
    Wenger knows what he is doing, and we have a very similar player in Song.

    stop reading this blog and read what arseblog.com today (Saturday) had to say about Sinbad. I’d rather read the scribblings of an Arsenal supporter than an Wenger boy Arsenal “fan”. Remember Sinbad, there is nothing to tie you to the club so be like Ade and go with a club that tries to buy titles and let the real fans take the rough with the smooth… because you haven’t got the courage to get behind your club on that level.

    Does anybody REALLY think that Wenger is not signing players out of choice, take a step back and look at how ridiculous that belief is. Before we moved to the Emirates he spent money every season. Yes it was restrained but it was always progressive.
    His hands are tied by the lack of funds available. He has made it clear from this time last year right up until the last week or so that we need to strengthen, with experience in midfield and defence. Just look back at his quotes after the Semi -final exit to Man U.
    As for the board, let’s again take a step back and think sensibly about the lack of funds. If they had the money available they would give it to the Boss to spend. They’re not stupid, they realise that that the blame lack of transfer activity will ultimately fall at their feet. So you have to come to the conclusion that the money is not there. Do you expect Wenger to come out and say were pot-less, as that would just invite the big spenders to make bids for the likes of Cesc, Van p, Clichy ect.

    Wenger is trying his best to keep the wolves from the door, although I believe he can do no more. Cesc and Van P were promises signings this summer so they must be disillusioned with the lack of transfer activity.

    It looks like the boss failed to land Melo (lack of funds), and simply did not fancy Cana. It appears that Eboue and Senderous are off, that tells me that the 25 million from Man C was at least in some part needed by the board and their departures are likely necessary to fund any further transfers this summer.
    Part Two
    I’m not a blind ‘Arsene knows’ supporter. Last season quite honestly he drove me mad, especially with his persistence with Denilson. Remember, his is a winner and these last four seasons would be killing him inside. How do you think he feel when Fergie sees him as a friend performing miracles with no money all because he’s no longer a threat to the red faced twat. David Dein has also confirmed were not in a position to spend as has Ade the greed.

    It conclusion we either stick with the board, keep the tradition and in around Ten years or so, end up a self-sufficient debt free club wining an FA CUP, if we’re lucky on the way. Alternately we pray the Russian makes his move and make funds available. I’m torn I will be supporting the club long the debt is pay off and I love to think we would be a big player without the debt of Man U Chelsea and the like. Although I want to be back at the top of the table properly challenging the big spenders, not just laying down and dying in the Semis.
    What to do?

    In my opinion if we don’t buy a couple of players, the boo boys will go mad and we will see a change. I just hope if it has to be done its the board not the boss it is aimed at, as we could come to regret losing a miracle worker.

    Sinbad – u are full of sh1t!!

    If Cana is so good why go to Sunderland? Why were there not any half decent teams after him? Only average league teams were after him.

    We know we need a defensive midfielder but FFS that does not mean buy any guy that does the most fouls and has a you tube video showing a few tackles!! FFS even I can look like Messi on youtube!

    As it has been pointed out by numerous people here you’ve based your entire blog on a you tube clip (like f*ck have u seen him play live 15 times u lying c*nt, I doubt you’ve been to Highbury/Emirates 15 times in your whole pathetic existence!)
    It’s w*nkers like u that would like to see us disband the youth set up at Arsenal and just buy, buy, buy like the chavs or citeh, well let me tell u, if you’ve been to Oxford United away in the mid 80’s on a miserable tuesday night to see us draw 0-0, then carry on, you’ll get ur wish, otherwise shut the f*ck up and let someone who KNOWS do his job.

    July 25, 2009 at 1:06 pm

    Don’t read it then dickhead!
    This guy is actually telling the truth. Can anyone see us competeing with the top four?
    Man Utd, Rooney, Hargreaves, Carrick, Vidic, Ferdinand. We’ve got no one anywhere near strong enough. Only Fabregas and arshavin would get into the Man Utd team.
    Chelsea, Drogba, Mikel, Essien, Terry, Lampard, Malouda. Again Arshavin and possibly Fabregas. But i don’t think he could unseat Lampard or Essien.
    Liverpool, Gerrard, Torres, Alonso, Mascherano, Skertl, Johnson. Arshavin would get in, i trust Reina still remembers the little rouski. And maybe Fabregas.
    City are going to have an August storm on defenders and midfeilders if they line up well with Terry/Lescott/Toure at the back and with players like Barry/Senna/Veloso etc in the midfeild. Ashley Young will most likely join soon.
    Robinho/Tevez/Santa Cruz/Adebayor/Bellamy/Elano up front means they have something Arsenal don’t, guts and squad depth. Could be a real struggle for us.
    My figners don’t wanna let me type it but…the…Spuds have even got more depth than us. Ouch!
    Villa have more strength and depth. As do Everton.
    OMG, this could actually turn out to be a terrible season! I’m going to hang myself, my roomate is a Tottenham fan and i can’t take another season where they do better than us in that they actually get awards, even if they are runners-up medals!

    So what has happened to the “record profits”, “£70m to spend”? Fergie says Arsene has no £ to spend so he has the biggest challenge – probably against AFC fans & the board before the other teams.
    Come on you Gooners! Wake up & realise Silent Stan is taking the money & the rest of the board are now with him, including the new American who will generate more cash via marketing only for it to go to Kronke & the board.
    Wenger would like to spend more than he has, not big amounts, but there is no money whatever the board, newspapers or “dead AFC fans” say.
    Either bring back Dein into the fold, as Wenger often meets him-regardless of the board’s approval OR question kronke on his line of U.S. sports teams being unsuccessful to ensure (via legal documentations) that £ will go to Wenger to buy players.

    So this so called hard nut slipped through wengers hands – according to who? I have never heard so much horseshit in all the years I have supported arsenal – and that is a lot longer than I care to admit as it reminds me just how friggin old i am.

    Arsenal fans are idiots for believing all the crap they read on the internet and in the papers. Cana agent , along with every other cretinous agent, unquestionably has linked his mediocre player to Wenger to get some interest in the tosser by other clubs – i.e. Sunderland. Yet so many Arsenal fans get their friggin knickers in a clump around their nuts and start doubting Wenger. Get a fucking life losers. This bollocks says more about your fragile mental state than the talent of our manager.

How can u call one of the greatest managers in the world a mug for signing a playing who joined a team like Sunderland for a lowly 5 mill! Surely if he was much kop a big team would have been in for him and Marseille (a pretty decent side) would have held out for more money for their club captain?
    I for one am looking forward to next year, if we can keep the same group together and Le Boss brings in one new face, maybe 2 next season should be rosey

    Arsenalaction you seem to have a great grip on what Arsene should or shouldn’t do there. What are your credentials besides writing short snappy answers in a basically grumpy article with little or no facts at your disposal? I’m almost sure that you and your likes were complaining the year before Flamini came good for us that he was useless as well and when he left you were probably the first to jump on the negative parade. I’ve seen that finish out of the top 4 statement a few years in a row now and funny you folks have been wrong every year.

    Hi im a massive arsenal fan, ive supported them all my life. i do have to agree with this blog. we havent won anything in ages and we seriously do need to bring in some players. when we signed vermaelen i thought arsene had finally realised that arsenal arnt strong enough in depth needed to sign some players. i think we definatly need to sign a DM and another CB, im not to sure who but we definatly need to sign them. the only thing i dont agree with in this blog is lorik cana. ive seen him play and to be honest hes not that good. sunderland is probably the right class of team for him. everything else in this blog i agree with, we need to start bringing in players who are already at their peak (arshavin was a good example and look how good he turned out to be!). ive seen veloso play and everyone says hes not that good but he is. i think with arsenals training he would become one of the best DMs ever. maybe we could bring flamini back as he is unhappy? ive seen sakho play, hes pretty good aswell but i doubt we’ll get im as psg want to keep hold of him.

    arsenal forever!!

    The bloke can’t tackle. 90% of his attempted tackles are fouls. Either we would be playing with 10 men every week, or giving away 20 free kicks per game, which isn’t very good considering our defence cannot cope with set pieces. Yeah, we need a tough tackling midfielder, but one that can actually tackle.

    You’re meant to support the team, not call the manager a mug and not have any belief in the players we do have. If you want to have that attitude fuck off and support the yids or Chelsea.

    And for the record I’ve had a season ticket for 13 years so I’m not some retard who forms opinions of players based on youtube footage like some people seem to be…anybody can make a player look good in a video, because it’s not difficult to find 2 minutes of good play in a season that lasts 57 hours.
