[Video] Please Wenger NOT Kolo!!!


I cant understand it!!!


Wenger today said we have 7 Center backs at Arsenal and he might sell Kolo Toure.

So let me get this right? Wenger is keeping Silvestre, Senderos and Djouoro and Alex Song and is cashing in on our best defender?

A player who has become a legend at the club. A player who is loved by the fans, A player who was always given 100% for the club, A player that never moaned about being one of the lowest paid players at the club, A player who never moaned about being played in almost every position on the field?

WHY? is it all about making a profit for Wenger? Surly Kolo is better then ALL of the current center backs at Arsenal?

If Wenger has 2 many CB then why not get ride of Silvestre? Why not sell Djouoro who has not done anything to impress. Why sell one of the most experienced players we have?

But it looks like its a done deal and we will be getting £16m for Toure. And Wenger has worked his magic and done what he is best at. Finding a player for a small amount and then cashes in on them. But is that what we have become…Are we now a feeder club for the big boys?

I’m gutted, Kolo was a big favorite of mine, where on the other hand i could not wait to see the back of Adebayor. I feel the total opposite about Kolo.

Sad day for Arsenal and again if proves that Wenger cares only about one thing..Profit

    more hyperbole from ya sinbad. Kolo has been an absolute legend but im afraid although sad to see it is DEFFO the right decision to let him go at anything over 10 mill. His best days we have all enjoyed & with less than 2 years left on his contract & him not being worth a much improved deal its TOTALLY correct. Gallas our best defender will prob walk on a free in 12 months, so can u really let both your best CBs run their contracts down & walk away for free inside 2 years 😮 !!! That would be absolute idiocy. As for your comments “So let me get this right? Wenger is keeping Silvestre, Senderos and Djouoro and Alex Song and is cashing in on our best defender?” Silvestre is an experienced understudy,4th choice at best & a happy bit part player with NO real transfer value so whats the point in letting him go! Senderos will prob go if a decent enough bid comes in, JD is young & improving & may blossom into a TOP CB SOON! Song is a great young utility player who can do a job in various positions & will also improve & be a major asset to the squad. Kolo is a great man & has been an excellent servant. Trust me though this is the right move 100X profit on a player who has more than likely had his best days? Anyone with a modicum of common sense can see that It could be wengers best transfer out of the club ever!!! always Sad to lose a legend but time moves on & it is the right thing to do no question.

    Although not the player he was-Toure is still a player who should have been kept at Arsenal.He always gives 100% and is someone the youngsters at the club could have learnt from.Given that Gallas is likely to swan off at the end of his contract;and the other options are at best erratic; I cannot see the logic in selling to a side who’s benefit will be our loss.Unless the £15m is to be used to persuade Fulham to sell Hageland-and given Wenger’s statement today,(apparently Arsenal have 7 Centre Backs),this would appear to be very unlikely.
    Otherwise that will be a total of 40 million Manchester City Pounds “banked” which will come in useful when Arsenal fail to qualify for the Champions League,next year.I really am getting fed up with this!

    Fuck the theory that gallas is world class and best CB we have. Toure is the best CB we have.

    Look lets be honest, Kolo is a decent center half and a very nice bloke but 14 million for a 28 year old past his best (and lets face it, his best was just decent) is bloody great business. Lets not get all nostalgic. The boy is a bit of a flapper. He was only at his best alongside a great center half, like Sol!

    Or Phillpe Senderos I mean they only went and broke the european champions league record for a number of clean sheets (without SOL campbell FFS). Look lets face facts he was a brilliant player for us and Wenger is some how gonna have to pull another rabbit out of the hat just to replace. Funny we must be the only club that at the begining of every transfer window were only 2 players away from world domination and at the end were about 3 or 4 players away!! Can we please just buy without selling just for once.

    Have any of you watched Kolo during the past two seasons? It hasn’t been pretty boys. For a number of years, Kolo has been one of if not my favorite Arsenal player but the Gunner’s defending over the past two seasons have been atrocious. And Gallas is equally if not more so to blame. So all of you ask why Toure and not Gallas or Silvestre or Song. Simple, none of our center backs would draw anywhere near 16 to 19 million pounds. This is a damn fine piece of business.

    Kolo will be replaced and hopefully by someone half the price but with skill that includes more than just strength and pace. Kolo has the tools, don’t get me wrong, but why were so many gooners calling for him to be our solution at d-mid when Flamini was sold? Maybe because he isn’t a natural central defender. And at his age, he never will be.

    So instead of calling for Wenger’s head on a platter, let’s set our loyalties to King Kolo for a moment and think about the fact that Arsenal now have over 40 million pounds to spend with over a month left in the transfer window. There will be players bought. Likely a d-mid and a tall, key word tall, center back. And if we’re lucky, an out and out striker as well.

    So to Kolo, good luck sir. Unlike the bulk of players that leave Arsenal, I wish you nothing but the best. And to Wenger, don’t change. You have done this club and it’s fans proud over the years.

    Just on Sky, stats on Kolo’s 2008-9 performances:

    Aerial duels – Kolo won only 44% of them, ranking him 67th best aerial defender in the PL

    Tackling – Won 78% of his tackles, making him 28th best

    Clearances – Ranked 35th

    Passing accuracy – 83%, and therefore 16th best in the league

    And muppets like Sinbad bitch about us taking £15m for a player with that record (and who’s already 28 etc). (By the way Sinbad, remind me which manager it was who had the guts to sign a player direct from Ivorian club football and play him in the PL – it was that lying fool Arsene Wenger wasn’t it? Hypocrite? You?)

    Like most gooners, I like Kolo a lot, and despite despising the club he’s about to join, I wish him the best (and hope he finds his way back to AFC one day). Ideally, keeping him as a squad player would be what we’d all like, but I’m sure he doesn’t want that.

    Much as he’s a top guy, I see little chance of Kolo strengthening City’s pitiful defence. There would be much more to worry about if Lescott joins them.

    We actually paid £150k for toure in 2002. Better business than you thought huh. Most important as you say is that we need quality replacements for those that have left.

    I have to say to u all gooners out there, saying that Gallas is better than Kolo. I don’t agree. If u remember “Le boss” said that Kolo and Gallas was too similar, both where perhaps to short at set pieces. King Kolo is one of the most experience players in arsenal today. He is 28 today; n say no thanks to £16m is just stupid. I get a afraid when u say to get Hageland. His not that god, n his to slow his the same type as Senderos, it takes ages for him to turn around. Arsenal play the game with much speed n I don’t think his that good man vs. man as often arsenal CB player often see them self in. I the other problem with this transfer is that “Le Boss” often buys inexperience players. I love “Le BOSS” but sometimes I looks more and more like a dictator, he wants young players so he can teach them how to play the arsenal way, but the problem is that the club AFC is paying the price for that. Remember it was exactly for this “Le Boss” got kicked from Monaco, selling his older player like Klinsman, Weah etc. etc n buying younger player. Le Boss never buys elder players the only one was Arshavin (27) and Davor Suker, because of that I’m worried about arsenals future… the future Wenger sold us. I don’t think to be just talented takes u where u want u have to work hard to get it to… le boss said that this team are and going to be better than the invincible team. I don’t see that happening for at least 3 years ahead.
