Did Wenger LIE to the Arsenal fans AGAIN?

A few weeks ago the Arsenal king of spin Arsene Wenger said that he wanted to bring in a frontman to cover a couple of key injuries.

At the time i said on the forum that Wenger was useing this to get the best out of Eduardo and was not going to sign a striker. Then Wenger came out and said “I want to buy as soon as possible” and” I will spend my money responsibly” I again said that this was bullshit and within the next few weeks Wenger would come out and say that the return of injuryed players would be like NEW signings..and not for the first time, He “DID

Not the first time we have seen this from Wenger over the years. and not the first time he has lied to the fans and mugged us off.

Why come out with all this bollocks on Arsenal.com and get the fans hopes up about new signings only to let us down? I do wish Wenger would just keep his gob shut and stop coming out with all this crap.

Over the years he has said things like ” I will sign 2 world class players, ” The Arsenal fans will be reassured by the new signings” I will sign BIG players”…Etc etc etc.

And everytime we are let down.

And NOW Wenger who recently told the world that he was looking at Chris Smalling has missed out on yet another player. Why did he say anything about Smalling anyway? … by doing so he told other clubs who might have been looking at Smalling that we were looking at him and there might be a chance we could missed out on him.

And Man Utd showed Arsenal hows its done. In 2 days they had a bid accepted and the player signed.

Unlike Arsenal who seem to take 5/6 weeks to sign a player and get the deal done but trying to get him as cheap as possible. and run the risk of missing out, Just like we did with Alonso, and how we almost missed out on Arshavin.

Well… Yet again a transfer window has come and gone and Arsenal do nothing. Like i have said loads of times, Arsenal care about one thing and thats profit.

We are in a fantastic place to win the league and by investing some of that £30m from the sales of Adebayor and Toure on much needed replacements for Song and RVP we might have gone on and won the league.

Now I just fear that the next 4 games will put an end to that and our season.

But who cares, At the end of the day the club will be happy with the profit and the “in wenger we trust crew” will tell us that Wenger did a great job. But the sad fact is that this season we had a real chance of winning something for the first time since 2005 and all we needed was 2 players and our manager to spend some of that profit.But yet again Wenger has shown how stubborn he is… I just hope that come the end of THIS season you will all see what I see.

Arsenal care about one thing and thats not winning things, its about making money and Wenger is treating my club as his own project. This club is now a farm. We sign players with only one thing in mind, to sell them on for a profit.

Why? Dont we spend good money at Arsenal? Why dont we get the big signings like Torres etc?

Maybe thats why you are now seeing so many empty seats at Arsenal. People have had enough of this and i cant blame them.

Sinbad.

    All you “sack the greatest manager that the club’s ever had” people need to ask yourselves two questions:

    1. Who are you going to replace him with? (I’ll help you here, he needs to be better and available so don’t say Hiddink, Mourinho, Capello, Ancelotti, Ferguson or Guardiola, because they’re not available).

    2. Even if you can find a better manager, will he buy more mature top class (and therefore more expensive) players or will he be under the same financial constraints imposed on him by the board and vy the financial realities of operating during a global recession?

    If you can answer these questions for me in the positive, well, let them sack him. In that case you can send me your reply by way of flying messenger pig.

    By the way, whoever said that having got us into a position to challenge for the title in the premiership and in the knockout stages of the Champions League on a shoestring, Wenger has “lost the plot” – priceless. What must Liverpool fans be thinking about Benitez? Oh no, sorry, forgot, they’re all rallying around their team rather than bitching and whining about it……

    WHO HERE FROM THE “WENGER IS GOD” BRIGADE WANTS TO SEE ALMUNIA IN GOAL FOR A FEW MORE SEASONS???

    THINKS THAT CENTRE BACK COVER OF SOL AND SILVESTRE IS GOOD ENOUGH TO BEAT THE GOOD TEAMS??? (OR EVEN STOKE!!)

    THINKS EDUARDO CAN PLAY LOONE STRIKER??? THINKS BENDTNER WILL BE AS GOOD AS VANP ON ARRIVAL FROM INJURY??

    OR HONESTLY THINKS THERE ARE NO “QUALITY” STRIKERS OUT THERE?? BETTER THAN ED, BENDT, VELA??

    WENGER IS FAR TO STUBBURN!! IT WAS PLAIN TO SEE IN THE LAST FANS MEETING WE HAD WITH THAT THE NEW CEO ARRANGED!! “HE THINKS HE’S MORE IMPORTANT THAN THE FANS!!

    MAYBE EVEN THE CLUB!!!!!!!!! WHAT OTHER MANAGER COULD SAY THAT!! HE’S PLAYED MOST FANS, EVEN SAID HE CONSIDERED R.MADRID!!

    HOW LONG COULD HE GET AWAY WITH HIS SPIN-NO-TROPHIES AT REAL??? …………A SEASON??

    u idiot.

    Man U are soo good at making a signing that they mucked up on Ramsay.

    Ok Smalling might turn out to be a great player, but 2 weeks ago you were not saying anything about us having to buy this rather unknown 19 yr old from fulham.

  8. gunner17

    January 28, 2010 at 1:45 pm

    It’s the ridiculous number of injuries that we get that is the problem.
    Wenger is reluctant to buy because he sees that when everyone is fit he’ll have too many players.
    The thing is we always seem to have a big list of injured players.

    Wenger needs to figure out how to keep players fit. I think we’ve got a thin spine. We depend too much on RvP, Fabregas(though Ramsey and Diaby are coming along), Song, Gallas and Vermaelen. We need more quality depth along our spine.

    Also he should consider loaning players off other clubs to be on the safe side, numbers-wise. A couple more injuries could leave us looking pretty threadbare. Huntelaar makes a lot of sense on loan. Why wouldn’t you try to get him on loan for a few months? It doesn’t cost anything!

  9. gunner17

    January 28, 2010 at 1:53 pm

    I also think the way we play invites injuries.

    Wenger wants players to be running all the time…it must put a lot of strain on player’s legs.

    Look at Chelsea…they play at a walking pace half the time, only injecting pace when necessary, and their players are hardly ever injured.

    I feel sorry for Rosicky and Eduardo most of all…they’re not really runners at all but they’re expected to bust a gut for wengers style of play. No wonder they’re always picking up injuries.

    If either player had gone to a slower team they would be World Class by now.

    Who could we bring in too improve the team then seeing as the majority of time it takes 4-5 months to adjust to a new leauge/settle in etc. How do you know? A mere blog writer who we’ve tried to sign or not? Stop writing a list of names we should sign when you have no clue as to whether they are actually avaliable or like Wenger says will improve the squad. Of the top of my head I can only think of about 4/5 ‘world class’ players but whos to say they would be interested in Arsenal. Stop bullshitting and support the team.

    WHY DONT YOU SHUT UP! WITH YOUR STUPID ARTICLES.
    AW IS THE MANAGER – LET HIM MANAGE. WHAT IS THE POINT OF BRINGING IN NEW PLAYERS FOR THE SAKE OF BUYING NEW PLAYERS. WHO IS THERE FOR SALE? WHAT WOULD HAPPEN TO OUR 4 STRIKERS WE HAVE AT THE CLUB? WHEN FLAMINI WENT TO MILAN, MANY PEOPLE ( INCLUDING YOURSELF NO DOUBT) SAID WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO? WE NEED TO BUY! I SAID AT THE TIME WE DO NOT NEED TO BUY ANYONE BECAUSE IN ALEX SONG WE HAVE A PLAYER WHO IS STRONGER THAN FLAMINI, USES THE BALL BETTER THAN FLAMINI AND IS A BETTER ALLROUND PLAYER…. BUYING PLAYER ALL THE TIME IS NOT ALWAYS THE SOLUTION. HOW MANY PLAYERS HAVE MAN CITY BOUGHT IN THE LAST 12 MONTHS? WHERE ARE CIY NOW? LET THE MANAGER MANAGE AND GET OFF HIS BACK. AS I SAID IN JUNE THIS YEAR WE HAVE THE BEST SQUAD IN THE PREMIERSHIP

  13. GosportGooner

    January 28, 2010 at 2:55 pm

    Have to say that I agree. Wenger has repeatedly assured us that we need a replacement up front. We also need another central midfielder ( defensive ) and a defender.
    Wenger could have won us the championship this season, instead, he will probably lose it.

    “Read this blog a few times but seeing the number of comments actually supporting you this time makes me worry. So being in the knockout stages of the champions league and a fighting chance of the premiership playing the best football in the country”

    Um Chelsea are playing the best football in the country this season….
    We have fallen behind!

  15. RB

    January 28, 2010 at 3:16 pm

    Just have to say that yes i would have loved a couple of signings in the window (GK and DM (if 1st week of Jan), but not at any expense. The January window has seen so little action because selling clubs are still desperately holding out for unrealistic valuations. Every top side seems to want a striker, but none moved for one and that tells a story in itself. Had Wenger been following this sinbads advice with signings in the past few years we would be totally f*cked and in as bad a shape as Liverpool. The author has even used the example of getting Arsharvin at a good price as a negative example.

    I don’t want to insult someone who is obviously a very passionate fan, but it is time to get in the real world. Credit is going to get more and not less expensive over next few years and i feel happy that we have a cushion in these times is a good thing. We get the some of the best youngsters at rock-bottom prices because of Wenger’s reputation and the structure at the club, of which he is the architect.

    We are getting a run at the title and yes we may come up a little short to Chelsea this year, but i would much rather have our assets and playing squad for the future than theirs anyday. Lets get behind Wenger and the team and give give them the backing they deserve – we were getting therre in the Bolton game.

    Also – seen a lot of nonsense about Smalling – So what about losing out to Manure? Yet more evidence of no value for money. Yes he might be the next Maldini, but its a big risk – At least Wenger has a track record on bringing in developing players at the right price.

    The fact that we have the best squad in the premiership isn’t really relevant when half of them are currently out injured. The simple fact is a manager has to react to the current circumstances in the transfer market just as he would on the pitch. If something isn’t working tactically or a player gets injured a substitution would be made. In the same way if a player gets a serious injury or simply isn’t performing on the pitch the function of the transfer market is to rectify this problem. Quite simply if Wenger does not complete a transfer (loan moves are fine) he fails to understand the point in a transfer market and therefore he is only doing half his job as a manager. People have to consider what the problem is with Wenger, why do some people want him sacked? Do we disagree with his tactics on the pitch? Do we disagree with the way we play football? Do we disagree with his team selection? Do we think he’s not getting the best out of the players at his disposal? No. He is a fantastic manager when it comes to all that goes on, on the pitch. Yet it does seem ridiculous to criticize a manager in the transfer market who has, without doubt, been the greatest manager ever in discovering talents such as Henry, Vieira, Overmars, Pires etc… All the same I think he’s been lacking in cutting edge and for someone with a master’s degree in economics I don’t think he understands the concept of football inflation. We paid £13 million for Sylvain Wiltord and given that £13 million then would be the equilivant of £20+ million today, would Wenger ever contemplate paying that much for a player, no matter how much we needed them?

    January 28, 2010 at 4:09 pm

    IF YOU WANT A MANAGR THAT BUYS PLAYERS ALL THE TIME SUPORT MAN CITY. WE HAVE BEEN UNLUCKY WITH INJURES THAT HAPPENS. DID MAN UTD BUY PLAYERS WHEN THEY HAD PLAYERS INJURED THIS SEASON? WE ALL SEEM TO THINK WE KNOW HOW TO MANAGE. EVERYONE SAID WE NEEDED TO BUY ANOTHER QUALITY CENTRE BACK – DO YOU THINK ANOTHER QUALITY CENTRE BACK IS GOING TO COME TO ARSENAL AND BE A SQUAD PLAYER? DO YOU THINK A BIG NAME STRIKER IS GOING TO COME TO ARSENAL AND BE A SQUAD PLAYER? WHAT WOULD HAPPEN TO PLAYERS LIKE VELA, BEDTNER IF WE BOUGHT A NEW STRIKER?

  18. Ivan

    January 28, 2010 at 4:26 pm

    I totally agree with the article. Wenger (or whoever is his boss, if there is any at all) is ruining the club. How long do we have to wait for trophy? He spent more than 10 mil on a player and got Arshavin who made us to the top 4 last season. No body wants a manager who only promises titles next season. I dont waht a club that possibly will win something in 10 years, I want it now because I’ve been waiting for 5 years already! Spend the money or loose the fans and the club eventually! I cannot believe we have players like Denilson, Eduardo and Bendtner… come on.. they are not capable of delivering us trophy. And come on, there is no better strikers in the whole world than ours? (not including VP) haha , this is funny. Wake up boys… we wont see any trophy until we spend the money, which maybe means Wenger to go…. Peace…

  19. gunner17

    January 28, 2010 at 4:26 pm

    There is something in the perception that Arsenal go about their transfer dealings in an amateurish way…

    We’re always waiting until the last day of the window to pull off deals.
    We’re always haggling over small sums (we could have had Xabi Alonso if we had spent £200k more than we offered! but we said no!).
    We’re naming players that we’re interested in and then not closing the deal decicively (smalling, chamakh) so allowing other clubs to steal players off us. Essien!
    We’re letting players leave months before they are replaced, creating gaps in cover in the team. Look now at the Vermaelen situation. We should have kept Senderos until signing someone else!

    All of the above is a bit piss-poor. I had hoped that Ivan Gazidis would have sorted this by now.

    Wenger is showing a lack of risk-management nous.

  21. Dan

    January 28, 2010 at 4:30 pm

    I guess we could spend 30m on a player cos that would guarantee a great player for us right?!

    Robinho, 30m, failure just left on loan.

    Veron, 30m, failure was sold for half the price.

    Berbatov, 30m, failure- does Vermaelen have more goals than him this season?

    Nani + anderson, 30m comb, failures.

    Shevchenko, 30m; SWP, 21m; Crespo, 17m; Mutu, 15m; failures for chelsea.

    Keane, 20m, failure- sold back to yids for 12m??!

    Michael Owen, 17m, failed- relegated.

    I could go on and on but you can’t reason with the unreasonable.

    You tell me who we could buy that would immediately come in and win us the league that has a reasonable value?

    We’ve been here before though haven’t we?

    Good start to the season, in the mix for the title, no reinforcements when the opporunity comes in January and bang! Floored by ManU, Chelsea and Liverpool as they gallop past us towards the finish.

    It’s fucking boring.

    You don’t need UEFA coaching badges or a masters in economics to see that a couple extra bodies will be the difference between challenging and not.

    Folks, there is no need for all the abuse and profanity. You can still make your point without being abusive, afterall every one is entitled to have an opinion and that is what this is about.

    To give this some perspective, football fans follow their team emotionally, that is why players and managers come and go but fans remain. The issue I see is that fans consider new signings as a sign of team progress and improvent, so when Wenger says he is in the market for “super players” he raises the fans expectation. What then happens is that if no player is signed and the team don’t win trophies it frustrates the fans who spend their hard earned cash supporting the team, and wanting the team to succeed, who have had their hopes raised. I would prefer Wenger not to mention that he is in he Market at all. I wonder if Wenger sometimes says he is interested in certain players knowing full well that another club is after the player?????

    This is such nonsense.

    If your complaint is “he promised me signings but didn’t deliver” then cry me a fucking river. He manages the team not your emotions.

    If the complaint is that Wenger is poor in the transfer market, then you’ve been watching a different Arsenal to me over the years.

    If the complaint is that he should be spending more money, then perhaps you have a degree in economics and know more than Wenger and the board about balancing the short term and long term interests of the club. Where do you think all this money comes from? Where do you think the profits are going? There is one good reason why we can’t chuck £20m at players on a regular basis – the stadium financing costs. Every £ spent now is borrowed at 11 – 15% interest. To put that in perspective: £20m paid now costs £35m over 5 years at 12% interest. And that’s even before you take wages into account. Assuming £100k pw for 5 years, interest alone on wages (on ave for 2.5 years as you pay 5 years interest on the first 100k and 0 years on the last 100k) = £9.5m. Total interest cost of doing that deal now and not in 5 years = £24.5m.

    If your view is that Wenger and the board are too focussed on the long term and not sufficiently focussed on the short term, then you are entitled to your opinion, but you need to actually make an argument if you want to persuade anyone. Personally, I think caution is crucial in the current climate. As someone pointed out, we don’t have a sugar daddy to treat our club like his own personal trainset. Nor do we have the Glazers who truly are taking profits out of the club for themselves. Instead, we have a board and manager who understand the longterm benefits of reinvesting profits into the club to pay down debt, which itself was incurred to produce a massive increase in revenue in the long term. People will look back on these years and say – that was the time when Arsenal truly became a footballing superpower.

    These guys (Wenger in particular) have vision. Sadly, some Arsenal fans do not.

    WHO DO YOU WANT TO SIGN GENIUS? Who? David Villa, who says he doesn’t want to play in England? Franck Ribery for $40million? Who? ManUre paid a reported 10million for a player with what, three starts? Wenger probably thought he was overpaying at offering 7million. ManUre are an example of how to do things? Get real. We’ll see the real ManUre in a couple of years when their debt crushes them.

We’ll just count our blessings that Wenger chooses so favor us with his ever graceful presence and count down to that terrible day when he leaves the club. No doubt Wengers absence will led to the club being relegated because surely no one else is able to manage us.

    January 28, 2010 at 10:03 pm

    Why don’t you go support the spuds.

    They’ve got plenty of your acclaimed “ambition”. They’ve spent £200m in the last 6 years and are still talking about breaking into the top four, we haven’t been out of the top 4 in over a decade. Been to 2 european finals, won 3 league titles, went a season unbeaten, built a new stadium and the best training complex in the country, regraded as a top 8 team around the continent of europe every season, challenging for Champions league and Premier League titles but we have no ambition because Wenger doesn’t want to waste 20m on a striker (a striker that isn’t available) when we already have Eduardo, Bendtner, RVP (back in 3 months), Vela, Arshavin, Walcott available.

    You clearly jumped on the bandwagon when we went unbeaten in 04 (it’s known as the United effect- halfhearted fans start “supporting” a team cos they’re doing well at one point, they have no idea of the history of the club or any true understanding of the game. It’s what Man Utd achieved in the 90s.) The problem with these fans is they don’t remember what it was like when we finished 13 in the league in the mid 90s or how delighted we were to finish 5 and get a european spot.

    All they know as an Arsenal “fan” is that we went unbeaten and now we’re not unbeaten. That’s just not what they signed up for and they won’t tolerate not being able to gloat that they’re an Arsenal fan to their little school buddies. They’re also the same people that have never been to a game in their life.

    I havent seen any ‘promise’ to buy anyone. You say yourself that he said he will try and sign a striker a.s.a.p. but will be sensible with the money. Do you want him to be like the twats at Barca that promise to spend fortunes they havent got on players under contract elsewhere? How are they so succesful?? They have 70%+ players from the academy, thats how.

WHO out there is an improvement on what we have, and can be bought AND wants to come to England with it’s 50% tax rate for top earners? Italy and Spain have lower tax rates for footballers. Good clubs aren’t going to sell their best players in January, and bad clubs are usually in financial distress and want a king’s ransom for their players. WHO? You don’t have a fucking clue.

If you want a bloody quote here is one! “You weren’t world-class when Arsenal signed you.” – Arsene Wenger’s reply, according to The Sun newspaper, when Vieira complained to him that Arsenal had failed to sign any world-class players. He even told the players he was going to bring a world class player. The reality is that all you leemmings get what you deserve….an empty trophy cabinet. I for one aren’t happy with that!

    Go support the spuds or the Arabs in Manchester, is that really the best response you can come up with. The limit of your argument if someone doesn’t agree with your 12 year old view of the world is they are a spud. Ridiculous. Besides, we all know that supporters like you will be off to support whatever team Wenger chooses to manage next. As for jumping on the Arsenal bandwagon, you couldn’t be further from the truth. I have been a supporter since the early seventies. My family have connections to many of the Irish players. I don’t claim to know any of them personally but they do keep in contact with member of my family.

    Who should we sign? I don’t know, but then I am not paid millions to run a scouting network. We hear that there are a lot of players who want to play for us, are you saying that with our extensive scouting network we are unable to find someone out there who is available and decent enough to add cover to the team? I don’t recall one person asking for the board to invest silly money on players, its just another of your silly arguments.

    As far as I am concerned Wenger creates his own problems, if he said at the start that we were not going to sign anyone then fair enough, but he sets the expectation that he will sign new players and then back peddles every single time and gives us some crap about injured players will be like new signings.

    We had an excellent opportunity to get some cover and strengthen but we didn’t. And before you go on about new signings don’t guarantee we’ll win anything, yes I know.
