Same stubborn Wenger, different transfer window

Not for the first time, Mr Wenger has let us down in the transfer market and failed to do bring in a much needed CB.

But did you really think he would spend a penny this time?

Having hinted that he would sign a “surprise” CB as cover as we only have 2/3 fit CBs at the club, he then changing his tune to “I might loan in a player”… Yet again our fans waited up hoping that Wenger would learn by his previous mistakes at this point and maybe this time, just maybe he would pull something out of the bag.

But it’s the same old Wenger. Stubborn penny pinching transfer policy that will no doubt cost us AGAIN this season.

Same as last season and the season before that. I said last season that “If Wenger had shown a real sign of intent by signing 2 players of real quality we could of won the title” .. I said the same before this transfer window. And yet again I now have no doubt that we will fade in the title run in. How long before RVP and Song pick up a injury and we have to put up with Denilson and Chamakh.

I don’t even know why Skysports send a report to Arsenal on deadline day anymore?. We watch the teams around us invest and strengthen, but being an Arsenal fan on transfer deadline day is like being a designated driver on stag do.

Whilst the Chelsea’s website leads with the breaking £50m transfer of Torres, leads on a kid we’ve recently signed from “Chukyodai Chukyo High School” who we have now sent out on loan.  no doubt he will be as great as Carlos Vela.

I’m sure the “in Wenger we trust brigade” will come out and blame the board for not giving him the cash to spend on new players. Or say there were no players available to sign. or even that the price of players is way to high at the moment.

But it’s a sad fact that in this business you get what you pay for and if you want a player you pay the going rate or sometimes over the odds. With Arsene he will always try and get a player on the cheap.

AW : Hello, I would like to sign your player. Now I understand you want £15m for him? I offer you £4m.”
Seller : No that’s not enough but we are willing to come down if you up the offer.
AW : NO! Thats totaly unacceptable, I am Arsene Wenger dont you know.. Have a few of our young players on loan till the end of the season as a gift of goodwill for wasting your time.

I have no doubt that Wenger was logging in to the Arsenal.FC online bank account last night just to watch the interest on the millions grain a few extra pounds.

I cant wait for Wenger to come out again and tell us how “very close we came to signing a player on deadline day”

Like he did last season, and the season before that…Same Wenger, different transfer window.

    Wenger = Cunt.

    Begun this around 2007/2008, and there is so much more, which proves how bad and repetitive everything has become. And a Cunt of a manager and Club who’s star player in Fabregas wants out from this shower of shit because of the crap he is surrounded with and lack of ambition and lack of silverware, refuses to strengthen to show him and It’s fans that they mean business. Too busy making money for themselves.
    People say Fabregas signed a long term deal a few seasons back, and should honour it and no-one forced him to.
    More like Wenger manipulated him into signing it, and promising all this shit like he tryed in vain with Henry. Now, Fabregas isn’t young and naive anymore, he’s realised the bullshit. Chugging along, playing his heart out, and noticed it is all one-sided and flawed.
    The Club’s a laughing stock. Sooner it goes tits up, and Arsenal learn the hard way, the better. The more cunts who re-new their season tickets (mainly the Wenger brigade) etc (and yet still complain), is the reason the board and Wenger get away with it continually. Like a drug addict, if he refuses help, the only way they’ll learn if they do, is to fuck themselves up and learn the hard way..
    Fucks me off something chronic, when die-hard idiots defend Wenger because he changed that, because he changed this. Errrr. One major flaw with that. What has a successful past got to do with a shite present?! Brian Clough bought success to Forest then got them relegated. Prime example of making and breaking a team. Stayed too long. If Arsenal win nothing much within the next 5-6 years, you’d still get wankers defending Wenger because he changed the dietary methods 20 years ago, and won league titles 15 years ago etc etc. Remarkable. The fact he also inherited from Graham, the winning mentality, defensiveness, power and strength from Adams, Keown, Bould etc who passed it on to Vieira and co. makes you wonder if he’d of won anything. Not taking anything away from his success’, but seeing now how poor Arsenal have been for ages, no drilling for the defence nor fighting and “When the going gets tough, the tough get” going attitude. Whole situation stinks!
    A man too, who claims “We SHALL win a trophy this season!” yet “throws” and shows utter contempt towards competitions i.e. FA Cup and League Cup, in favour of the more “bigger” prices/competitions, in which they never come close to winning neither, so completely, and utterly, pointless!
    Get somebody else in to give it a chance and take us back to the heights Wenger can no longer do. Or WON’T do.
    Someone who hasn’t won a pot for years, in a position to chuck any competition under no pressure from the board is way beyond words. Lack of squad depth? Who’s to blame for that then?
    I used the same scenario once before. If your married for example of 20 odd years and your wife has bought you so much happiness and changed your life etc etc, and one day you found out she was fucking other guys recently, you gonna defend her and keep a hold of her because of the happy past? Or are you gonna consider the present and cut your losses? Maybe you’d work something out, well, Wenger has had 5 years. Plenty of time to deliver but hasn’t. In football, you judge someone in the recent past and present to be fair. And Arsenal’s last few seasons have been in general, shit and trophy-less. Wenger takes the plaudits when we were successful, now he has to take the majority of blame for the ultimate failings…
    In small doses, maybe he has done well finishing in a CL position year after year with this squad that is shit.
    But then it is shit because he has FAILED to build upon the squad year after year, and ultimately, has won fuck all. And a total disgrace being offered a new contract of at least 6 million quid a year AND a 20 per cent pay-rise on top of!! Hill-Wood the prick, saying in regards to Gallas’ contract, how players need to know the value of money, and realise that money doesn’t grow on trees. Total contradiction and disgust!
    And again, any top draw manager could finish at least 4th at WORST with this squad. But then, it would be inaccurate to say that anyway, because any decent manager who came in would add/replace players significantly in order to achieve success. At least make an attempt. Not buying success, but spending what is required and building upon the squad currently.
    Fact of the matter remains. Regardless of CL qualification. 5 years without nothing and no progress whatsoever. Taken 5 years to try and build a top draw squad with which there is no end product. The squad doesn’t even look convincing. Weaker every summer.
    10 per cent doing well in CL qualifying, 90 per cent shit on the whole for underachieving and winning shit. I could be manager of Arsenal and win shit for 5 years, anyone could. I might miss out on a CL place, but then if Wenger did, I doubt he would STILL not get sacked!! I sure as shit too, bet Wenger would spend money more if it was the top 2 only who qualify for the Champions League! 4th at worst is a comfort zone. He said himself once, that it should only be the “Champions” in it. Yeah, easy to say that when he use to win the Premier League. Something which was years ago and never to be repeated again under his reign.
    Oh, and maybe stability breeds success. After-all, look at the incredible success and trophies Dario Gradi bought to Crewe after so many years of being manager!
    People also brand Wenger a genius. Truth is, the bloke is an idiot! Why would a genius make the same old simple and many mistakes eh? Bunch of Wenger (magic) asshats. And does a so-called “genius” go a total since they have been at a club of around 8 years without a trophy?! And does a genius who has had such wonderful, world-class players at their disposal have such a shit general record in Europe and never won a CL and back-2-back league titles?!
    Bloke wants to admit defeat, gain respect by fucking off to Japan or France and take the board of directors with him. Prove how “good” he is by building a young/youth team with a small club over there for peanuts. Then if he makes them world-class, THEN we can say he is a genius. What a prick. Fucked Arsenal just like he did with Monaco. In fact, even worse. At least they had the balls to drop kick him into touch where they replaced him with Tigana. Who went that extra step and signed the right players in order to achieve success. Same as the great George Graham said on his arrival as Arsenal manager: “If you can’t think big, or act big, at a club like Arsenal, you may as well crawl under the carpet….” Wenger needs to crawl and rot under his Aubusson! It was a shame the board never shared Graham’s ambitions too, restricted to a shoe-string budget and strict (at the time) wage policy which got thrown out the window when he was sacked. If the board bent over backwards for Graham like the Cunt Wenger now, he would of been even more successful!
    Thinking there is a conspiracy against Arsenal also is typical of being a Cunt and when decisions etc go against him. Should take a long hard look in the mirror and closer to home. Always someone else’s fault.
    It amazes me why people continue to defend this man to the death. He is seriously fucking up Arsenal, to a point, if he did leave, no world-class players would want to join Arsenal anyway. Won’t ever change under Wenger. All true and the truth hurts. With a French git who speaks such shit and thinks The World is against Arsenal.
    That is why I dislike Wenger, not just because of the lack of success recently, it is the refusal to learn from the ultimate, simple a lot of the time mistakes, and the constant “bigging” up of his team when they aren’t good enough, and the repetitive shite he continues to spout. Whatever he once achieved at Arsenal is history. He will be remembered as the maker and breaker. Most successful manager, but also the most under-achiever. Fact!
    Wenger said in the summer of 2005, when he sold Vieira, he had a “Masterplan” and “Trust me”. I guess that that plan and the trust in him, was to finish with fuck-all 5 seasons on the trot, whilst watching your fiercist rivals sweep the lot between them. How wonderful. The cunt’s ego is writing checks his body can’t cash (“Top Cunt”) and he is a skinny fucker too. Starved of success. Whilst everyone else involved with The Arsenal (mainly the fans) has to suffer.
    Seeing United and Chelsea etc win shit, you’d think would agonize and make Wenger etc more determined to do something about it. Particularly as he stated himself he hates losing. Wouldn’t of thought so based on recent seasons…
    Wenger apologists always point out we were “shit” before Wenger came along and were a “mid-table team”, which has a whole is utter shite, because it was only around twice (1993 & ’95) we were mid-table.
    1993 and 1995 was the only real time in recent years prior to Wenger we were mid-table, but ultimately, still a VERY successful side. Second most successful era/period since the 1930’s.
    In 1993, we still won a cup double which was a first in those days, so not at all a bad season and was a fantastic triumph when the League Cup meant something back then. So in fact, it was only really 1995 (still reached CWC Final again and unlucky) and 1996, we had 2 shitty seasons we had until Wenger came along. In fact, Graham himself, only finished outside the top 4 like 3 times in his 9 seasons or so he was at Arsenal.
    People are also quick to harp on about how we wouldn’t even be where we are today without Wenger. Damn right about that!! Hindsight is a wonderful thing.
    Same people, however, aren’t as quick to notice that the past 5 seasons, which have been shit, are also thanks to Wenger.
    After 2004, it is sure shit to be an Arsenal fan. Maybe as well, we don’t have the funds to get players in (although we all know we do which has been proven) because of the new stadium etc. Well, if that’s true, sounds like a right hash job and not thought through enough, with crippling debts. Might be good for the future, but by then, probably be a lower division side. Yet again, you can blame Wenger, seeing as he was the one behind the new stadium and the one with the “vision”. Not to mention the disgraceful wage bill which is one of the highest around, particularly in England. Paying over-rated crap which aren’t good enough, nor win anything PERIOD. Total fucking shambles. Even for a small amount, you telling me there isn’t an affordable batch of players how there, better than Diaby, Denilson, Silvester, Eduardo et al?!
    Wenger himself, one of the highest paid managers in World Football, on at least 5 million per a year, to win fuck all, and be under no pressure to deliver at all. Even more than Ferguson at United. Money for nothing.
    Building a bust for the bloke as well, when he is still at the Club and completely over-rated, and single handedly destroyed his own Legacy he created.
    Brilliant times tho eh? After we won the FA Cup (undeserved playing negatively and shit, something Wenger hates and slates other clubs who do that against us whom we struggle) in 2005, we have had to watch Liverpool, Chelsea and inparticularly, Man United sweep the lot between them, i.e. CL and the PL. What a wonderful place to be in! And people reckon us Arsenal fans are spoilt! What the fuck does that make United and Chelsea fans then eh?! United dominated the 90’s, and now the 2000’s!
    And who can forget Avram Grant, reaching his first CL Final in only a few months, someone who was inexperienced and might not even had the right coaching badges etc. Something Wenger had taken a decade to do in reaching the final, and still not won a Champions League! In fact, the only manager to reach all 3 finals of each European competition and lose!
    SACK THE BOARD AND WENGER!! It is the only way forward if Arsenal are to win trophies. Lie to the fans. Just because Wenger wants to do it his way and bring on shit kids and basement/bargain buys just to save a few bob, who are too young (or old and has beens or never beens of will be) and not good enough, then blame the lack of success on “Lack of maturity.” A self-inflicted, repetitive wound..
    And people defend Wenger (Arsene knows brigade and apologists) stating the board are letting Wenger down in regards to transfer money. Wenger is the fucking man behind it!! He wanted to move to the stadium and do things on the cheap with his “Experiment”(his word) and brainwashed the board to the point they are now BOTH to blame. Wenger doesn’t even spend the money which we all know we have which is proved. Said himself he wouldn’t spend 100 million if he could because of hampering the younger players development etc. Nor did he spend big anyway when at Highbury, but still managed to compete became successful. And if there really is NO money, then guilty by association as they oppose a money takeover. Happy to line their own pockets first. Both tight cunts, although Wenger is the main culprit as he is still given the opportunity to spend money, but the board are happy for him not spend it hence making a saving.
    Plus, Wenger said success can only be measured in time. Okay then. Have it your way:
    7 trophies in 12/13 years not bad. But add up a total of 8 years of not winning anything, no back-2-back Titles EVER, no Champions League EVER, 3 League Titles in 14 seasons, and no Title for 6 seasons, and a trophyless 5 seasons on the bounce.
    Overall, shit ratio. Well done, Arsene!
    Once Fabregas goes, which will probably be next summer, seeing as the team is built around him, Wenger will fuck off, and the Arsenal board because daddy left, leaving it someone elses’ problem to hire a new manager and leaving the club in the shit. Probably end up Arsenal having the best stadium in the Coca-Cola Championship. With sad fucking Wenger cunts with banners sat there saying “Arsene Knows.” “Bring back Arsene!” We are shit. Fucked. Finished. Back to mediocracy like the 80’s until Graham saved us and turned Highbury into practically a full house and not just 20,000. Out of the darkness, into the light….
    When you got a manager and board of directors happy and content with winning nothing and finishing 3rd and 4th, you are never gonna be successful again.
    Wenger has gone full circle. He made Arsenal and made them successful, and now taken them right back to where they started when he joined way back in ’96 when the team went a little bit stale. Trophyless and mediocre. In fact worst as far as trophyless seasons. Although they weren’t as shit as everyone made them out to be prior to Wenger. When he leaves, the Club will be worse off than ever, and all the money he has saved up, leave Arsenal in a fantastic situation financially, which will be brief before The Board sell up and a new owner pumps debt into the Club. So completely, and utterly, pointless…
    Wenger’s 2004 Invincible season, something which may not ever happen again, was his swan song. The worst sequence of runs since 1980 to 1986 where Arsenal never won anything until George Graham took up the reigns. And even he never went more than one season without fuckall!
    Sinatra style, with Wenger singing – “And I fucked Arsenal……………MYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY WAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    “It is unacceptable for a big club to go 4 years without a league title.” – Arsene Wenger on Real Madrid.
    No League Title for Wenger for 6 years, and trophy-less for 5 and counting…………
    Wenger for me, was once a very good manager at Arsenal, but never a great manager……
    Arsenal….Where failure and losers are rewarded…

    cock on sinbad. but this time round it is even less acceptable as we are so close but in even more dire need of strengthening due to key injuries, appalling form and some incompetence.
    this could cost wenger his job, or i may be wishfully thinking

    we are ssooo much better than those sisters!! 🙂

    Wenger hasn’t let me down. I’ve got no problem with him keeping faith with the squad who have got us in the position we are…..and who will improve over the next few seasons too! More than happy to live or die by the present squad, no mercenaries there anymore and ALL Gooners….unlike so many of our supporters! C’mon you Redddddsssss!!!!!!!

    I’d say everyone bar Rocky Jay is Pathectic. Wenger is a cunt simply b/c he did not but. Is Alex Ferguson a cunt too? WE are second in the league, still in all 3 cup competitions. YOu people live pathectic lives. I bet you’re either British or American spoilt prats. Shut the fuck up and go support Chelsea. They seem to spend every window.

    February 1, 2011 at 1:50 pm

    Totally Agree!!! He is soooo stubborn!!! Everybody in the world can see that Arsenal have been a couple world class signings away from perhaps being on a dominating level that Barcelona is… but personally i think that he has One Dollar bet with someone. Similar to Eddie Murphy’s movie Trading Places… I think that he is so stubbornly stuck on trying to make this squad (that he had to Teach to become good) win against the “Ready made players”, that he has become obsessed… It is so hard sometimes to be an Arsenal fan cause we could’ve been won titles and cups!!! And what kills me is that when you win these things, you get massive money that will more than justify the spending!! But once again we are in a 50/50 gamble for the rest of the season because of Wengers stubborness!! Squillachi isn’t the answer; Vermaelan we don’t have a clue if or when he’s coming back; if something happens to Doujurou, Song or Fabregas we would be in a really bad state!! And let’s not mention that our best player this season Nasri has just pulled his hamstring… To not get us sufficient cover to insure that we cross the line this season is just plain and simple Bull Headed!! and it somewhat is an insult to the fans, because how many times do we have to go through the same senario? The definition of insanity is trying the same thing over and over and expecting a different result! Let’s just hope that we fall on the good side of the 50/50 gamble.

  9. Bored of it now...

    February 1, 2011 at 1:52 pm

    Yep I couldn’t agree more. I mean we are so close to the top of the table, needed that one extra player to cover the CB position, which would have given us the depth we needed.

    But oh no, Wenger couldn’t be bothered. The money excuse is pure crap, as we are making serious profit, and covering the repayments on the staidum loan quite comfortably. We had at least 2 suitable candidates that said “come and get me”!

    You watch as we fall down the table, exit the CL, and FA cup.

    I guarantee that with our record of player injuries, February and March we’ll throw it all away, and fight for a top 4 spot.

    It’s painful being an Arsenal fan these days, not just because we haven’t any recent silverware, rather, that we have a manager more interested in his image of buying gems for little or no money (for which we have quite a few flops also)…WANKER!

    February 1, 2011 at 2:22 pm

    sinbad the fool speaks again.knows nothing and speak more shit then harry redknapp we have good players and dont need anyone u think buying a cb is be good for djourou or kos no! the fact is we sit second in the league beaten man city and chelsea with our current team. u act as if we are mid table like liverpool struggling but we are not he are in a final of the carling cup!!!!! look which other team that hasnt invested in jan and it is Man utd u say they bought a keeper but that signing is just like the japanese kid we brought. man utd have very weak team with very little depth abd the bought no1. but will u heard utd fans moaning and the manager no!!! i swear we have some thick arsenal fans around all u want to see is us bring in stupidly over priced ppl like Andy carroll and for us to go into debt and end up like leeds or pompey struggling to pay thier debts then u will disappear and go support chelsea or city cuz u are gorly supporters in the end.

    February 1, 2011 at 2:30 pm

    I have come to expect we are not one of the clubs that spends 35M on potential, because there is no way Carorrol is worth that much money neither is Torress worth 50M. I love Arsenal not only because of the football they play but because of the values they have such as spending only what you earn. I bet you are in credit card debts to your neck. If we don’t win anything this season or next, I will still be an Arsenal fan, in the long run Wenger is doing the right thing…

    February 1, 2011 at 2:33 pm

    signing a CB still CAN’T GUARANTEE arsenal will win EPL & Champion League. fabregas and van persie could suddenly injured and we can’t score goals. or the new signing could simply unable to cope with EPL yet. if arsenal to win EPL with current squad, what would you say? you’re wrong and wenger is right? the point is you never know, wenger a manager for a reason, he brought so much to this club, if you think you smart enough why don’t you try manage a football club. we should have more faith in this team. we are second in premier league, in carling cup final, still in contention in FA cup and champion league. don’t drag us down.

    February 1, 2011 at 2:37 pm

    It’s not all bad with Wenger. He found Eboue who is at the moment the world’s greatest footballer. Not only does he double as Gunnersaurus Rex, but is completely unable to tackle, pass well, shoot or do anything but run into opposition territory then totally panic. He is carving himself out a niche as Mr Nice Guy dishing out his kit at the end of home games, making sure he is last off the pitch and even when he’s not playing he patrols the touchline near any cameras, smack people like Sagna around the head as he’s being led off with concussion and gives Nasri a kiss while being led off against Huddersfield. He covered more ground in that move than he did for the whole game. This is the guy who you pray willl get injured, does and then he’s back for the next game!

    As for Denilson, I wouldn’t say Wenger has a blind spot, but I did see him using a white stick at the training ground. Most people who know anything about football know Denilson’s total **** except a few middle class morons with laptops. That’s why I hate Ryan Shawcross, thanks to him we have this tuppeny ‘apenny Brazilian in front of Ramsey and the fact that Diaby’s made of glass doesn’t help either.
    Other Wenger jems include Squillachi (is he any better than Senderos?), Flapiandski and Almunia.
    Funny that Wenger decided to take the Carling Cup seriously this season, but the deluded fool thinks we can win alll four comps! Do me a favour Guv!

    I think AW is part of a big conspiracy, may be forced into. How else it happens. It’s his genious to keep Arsenal in CL, believe no other manager including SAF could have done the same. So why such stupidity.
    Van persie has shown what a difference a lethal striker could do with even so much shit around. Last match has shown how many clowns we are carrying in the team ( Eboue, Denielson ), how erratic betdner and Chamakh, how poor is gibbs. Still they have permanent licence to continue. Ashravin and Rosciky is past their best.

    MANU has lost Ronaldo and tevez but that didnot stop their goal machine.

    Song keeps surrendering ball dangerously. Why we can’t have a top quality striker who can at least can take shot and a physically strong DM while we are the only club making profit of such magnitude.

    If you are that disappointed that Arsenal haven’t brought anyone in then do yourself a favour and stop supporting the team. I watched the team against Huddersfield and there was more than enough talent on show to put them to the sword. Unfortunately there are talented players who are not applying themselves. Eboue is more than capable of playing a right back and midfield role. Denilson, (whom I loathe to see in the team) is still more than capable of playing a midfield role. The problem is that they do not get enough games and when they do get into the side, they are rusty and it seems when two or three players are not firing on all cylinders and have the apaphetic approach to games as well, then it is a recipe for disaster.
    Arsene Wenger infuriates me as well, especially not buying a central defender however are we being told correctly that there is actually transfer funds available. Do we know that he didn’t try to secure someone’s services. Let’s face it, we are not going to get any help in the Premier league and it probably was the same abroad as well.
    Whether we win or lose, we have to stick with what we’ve got and instead of generating enrgy for hatred towards the manager and the board for not buying, why dont someof you lucky enough to see the beloved team every week to get behind them and make the Emirates rock. It is quite embarrassing to hear Leeds fans and Huddersfield fans above the sound of our pitiful bunch unless of course we are winning. It is when the chips are down you get to know who yoyur real supporters are.

    Seriously if you hate Arsenal’s policies so much then go support chelsea or man city. I am not even going to try and explain the obvious that we built a 60,000 stadium with 400M debt acquired for which we have to pay annually. Oh I guess i just did. I doubt it will help with you ignorant fools who keep disrespecting Arsene Wenger. He is a saint and has done nothing but led us to a point where we will be able to compete with anyone IN THE TRANSFER MARKET. That is right we moved to the new stadium so we could eventually compete in the transfer market and wages you fools. Not cause we needed a change in sceneray. but that doesn’t happen overnight and you have to pay the freaking debt off. God some of you morons are so damn dumb.

    I’m still waiting… no names? aah thought so. Well there you have it folks. Gary Cahill? even wasn’t for sale, unless you have silly money with a silly salary to match. Nothing more to see here. Move along now.

    Oh what ranting. How many managers have come and gone in the last few years spending money and not achieving anything. In world terms Liverpool are a bigger club than Arsenal – have spent zillions on players and have won lots and lots of silverware!? – where is it? Manchester Utd have two good centre backs – but the reserves are no better than Siquilli although they paid a lot for Smalling. Chelsea are old and getting older how much longer for JT and others – can they afford to rebuild with cash after the new UEFFA rules – certainly not. Manchester City having spent zillions also come to Emirates and could still be there without scoring as they created absolutely nothing – is that what we want?
    Arsenal still play football – yes they miss chances and a pre injury Eduardo would be a godsend now but at least they always create them. With a high back line the defenders have to be savvy and very quick – most of the players touted as CBs would not fit into this system – do we defend deeper to bring in a slow centre back and not create anything apart from route one?
    Bringing in a “star” costs a lot but also forces the manager to play him whether he deserves his place or not (look at Robinho in ManCity) it also causes friction as not only do you pay a lot but you also have to pay ridiculously high wages which makes the others unhappy with their lot.
    I am sure Wegner tried to sign a loan CB without success and found that the inflated fees asked by clubs was very poor value for a purchase.
    We are still second in the League and a real chance of winning it – just back the team or go to follow Chelsea.

    Stop moaning, get behind the team that’s out there fighting on 4 fronts for silverware. This year will be the year we finally end the trophy drought, I’m going to stick my neck out and say we will bag the Carling cup and the FA cup and finish 3rd in the league, not a bad return really and one that will allow us to really kick on next season to achieve even greater goals. Come 2012 when the financial restrictions come in, Arsenal will be one of the richest self sufficient debt free clubs in world football with a world class stadium and youth system and squad that will be hard to rival. How many other clubs in the league will be able to say that, Chelsea reported losses of £70m yesterday and then promptly spent exactly the same amount putting them £140m in the red. They may be laughing now and have the strength to challenge this season, but great things come to those who wait, The world is in the deepest darkest recession and it’s irresponsible to spend like that and invest on marquee signings regardless of all dirty Russian rubles in the vault. This season we may well not pick up the biggest prizes in football, but we WILL win something, and that’s all this team needs, once they have the taste we can challenge for years. I do think a few changes are needed, and despite his goal the other day, i still don’t believe Bendtner is the man for arsenal. I would love to see him and Denilson moved on and hazard and Chamberlin brought in and Walcott moved up front. We are so close to greatness and i think some fans are swept up in the hype of the plastic market, fueled by impending deadlines and the need to appease fans, what wenger is doing is whats best for Arsenal, not for the fans, not for himself, but for our Arsenal. His actions now will ensure we remain at the top level of world football for years to come, and anyone who can’t see that is a moron. If you want fanfare, debt and false hope, go and support Chelsea, Liverpool or utd.

    Raul Albiol from Real Madrid, 25, CB, RB, DM. 25 and Spanish.
    We could have had him for about £6m and amazingly, isn’t CL cup tied.
    I think that our non-activity in this window must have finally convinced Cesc that the time is right to go in the summer.
    Wenger needed to show the fans, the competition and the squad that we are prepared and mean business for the final months of the season.
    One injury or suspension to either of the CBs and we are well and truly heading up the creek, with no paddle!
    Has my club lost it’s vision and ambition? Why are we gambling like this?

    Frankly speaking arsenal should have signed a CB. arsenal is bound to lose many games because there are very many important games ahead and with the injury prone Jourou,and the fact that Squilaci is not reliabe “error prone”,plus fatigue arsenal will not stand that pressure. We shall only see a crumbling arsenal come mid Feb to March. Nevertheless I wish arsenal can end their trophy drought starting with the Carling Cup.

    Am I missing something, we’re second in the league, challenging in all other competitions and we have a fully fit 1st 11 (except for Vermaelen and Nasri)……with acceptable replacements (Koscielny and Arshavin)……….where’s the fire?!?

    Get behind the team and leave the post mortems to the off season!!!

    Gelbs, I agreed with you until you called us season ticket holders cunts.
    I think you should calm down so you don’t do yourself a mischief. Sure we need a CB but do the fans get to choose them then buy them. No.
    Fuck off back under the rock you crawled from. CUNT.

    That was the solution! Thanks seasonticket, crazy Wenger didn’t know about Albiol (for a mere 6 mil, too), what a waste of money the scouting network that. With Raul Albiol it would not have been a gamble anymore, but a mere formality. Stupid cunt, fuck, shit, piss. Plus he’s Spanish and 25! FFS! We are only second in the league and with a couple of signings we could have been 1st! Feck off I’m off to support a proper ambitious club like Chelsea.

    Season ticket, I seem to remember him playing against Ajax in the champions league. Where did you get the idea he wasn’t cup tied? Where did you get the £6 million figure from? They signed him for 15m, and if I’m correct they donn’t exactly have an abundance of centre backs either. So it would be extremely doubtful that would sell at such a cheap price. But supposed we signed him, where we would he play when vermaelen comes back? Secondly, what do think you a real madrid centre back (…signed at the same time as a host of other galaticos) earns wage wise? Thirdly, would raul albiol improve the squad that much? I would agree that he may be better than squillaci, but hed still need the time to adapt which wouldn’t help us that much cover wise. Cheers.

    Superb post @ 1.31pm by the way. Spot on. We are being managed by Bill Murray but without the realisation that he’s seen it alll before.

    Jog on, Arsene.

    We should wait for Mourinho to become available and bring him in.

    Daniyal, u are the one that is stupid fool, fucking moron, what do u know, do u know anything about football, I will say it and say it millions time, Wenger is fool and stupid, because of his shares in the club therefore he choose to do what ever he like, listen, as for me I didn’t expect the fool to spend 20 millions on player, can u see our squads tell me are they good enough to win something? I doubt it, come 27th of febuary, birmiham would bit.

    So mr Daniyal, & co, u can defend Wenger what u like, u and Wenger is nothing but asshole, if want to be managing money, he should go back to his country so that he can be their finance minister, all we are saying by one player not twenty, a looser, he doesn’t care because once his 6 million pounds goes to his bank account, a liar. Wenger is a old liar. From febuary he would realise what fans are saying, injury can strike anytime, what provision did he made, nothing, mr running nose.

    I write this as we trudge off 1-0 down against Everton. Looks like Djourou may have done his collarbone and Song is limping all over the pitch. So there possibly goes a CB and his replacement if injured.
    Priceless Arsene. What price a new CB now you mug? No doubt Bartley will be recalled before even having pulled on a Rangers shirt! Fingers crossed for our season now, let’s hope Kyle is up to the task!
    We may well fight back tonight, but the injuries look bad already.
    Our gambling manager seems to have done it again….but it’s not his fault of course….if only we didn’t have those injuries, and who on earth could have foreseen them? Not like it’s happened before is it?

    @seasonticket: just wondering if you were going to post a retraction to your wonderful insight at 8:40? Seeing as Arsenal came back to beat Everton 2-1 despite Lee Mason’s best endeavours. It’s been over an hour now since the game ended so I’m presuming not!

    @Sinbad: I know you wanted signings … Part of me thinks that you’re glad we didn’t make any, as you got another excuse to throw a hissy fit. Seriously, try, just try, to write one positive post – no agendas! Is that possible?
