[Ratings] Its Buy Buy Arsene or its Bye Bye

Arsenal 0-2 Liverpool

“If you fail to prepare, you’re prepared to fail.” Arsene Wenger has had ALL summer to sign players, we have all said that this current team is lacking in quality and is weak in certain areas and all hoped that Arsene would go out this summer and address our worries and we would be ready to fight for the title come the start of the season.. WRONG!

All summer Arsene has been indecisive in the transfer market and taken way to much time in closing deals and with that we have missed out on players and have gone into the start of the season unprepared and weaker then last season.

With only 3 games played we are down to barebones with a host of kids called up into the first team like Jenkinson,Miquel,Frimpong, & Lansbury.

Dont get me wrong I rate all of them players but asking them ALL to step up and play in the “SAME TIME”  is asking why to much.

I know that some people will point out the injury list and say this is just back luck. Well its not!

Gibbs has never played more then 5 games in a row without picking up and injury in his life. Rosicky, Johan, Diaby ALL have a long history of long term injuries. YOU CANT RELY ON PLAYERS LIKE THAT!

We all know that RVP is also in this list and if he or Vermaelen picked up a knock then this team would be nothing more then a shambles.

2 league games gone without scoring a goal and picking up 1pt with Man Utd next, a tough 2nd leg in Italy with a host of players out injured or suspended, Arsene has some serious work to do this week, my only fear is that the damage has already been done.

Our dealings should of been done a very long time ago and allowed the new signings time to gel and work as a unit.

Now we are going to be panic paying over the odds and then expect a magic cure as we throw them into the deep end and assume its going to be a perfect fit. New players need time to settle and adjust, Arsene knows this so why didnt he address this sooner?.. I fear that our season come next week will be over before its even started!..Well done Mr Wenger and Gazidis.

At the start of this summer we had around £30m to spend as our transfer budget, Not a great amount compared to others I accept. However, with the sales of Cesc, Clichy, Eboue, JET and by loaning out the likes of Denilson and Vela, we must now have around £50m in the kitty.

So why in gods name is Arsene not spending it?

Today the fans again sang “Spend some f##king money and directly to Arsene “You dont know what your doing”  We had hoped and trusted Arsene to get it right this summer after letting us down in the last few transfer markets. But he let us down BIG time and the fans are justified in booing at the end as they have done today.

Why do we understand that he is trying to sign players from France on LOAN? Why hasnt he signed a CB in Gary Cahill, Why not Scott Parker? Why did he take him so long and we missed out on players like Mata, and Alvarez?

Im sorry to say this but its clear to everybody that Arsene has lost the plot. His principles and lack of spending have ripped this club apart, his stubbornness to sign players shows nothing more then an unwillingness to accept he was wrong and others are right. Arsene has done so much for this club, But that was and is history. We are dealing with the problems of today and he is unable to address them problems.

He now has 10 days to save his job… Its buy buy Arsene or its Bye Bye

Arsenal Action Ratings

Szczesny 8.0 : Played very well and was solid and confidence. Nothing he could do with both goals.

Jenkinson 6.5 : Alot to ask the kid and at times his age showed. But he worked hard and didnt let us down.

Vermaelen 8.5 : Fantastic and won his battle with Andy Carroll, the leader in a weak back 4!

Miquel 6.5 : Came on after 15mins to replace Kos and didnt let us down. very hard for any player to come in during this time and into this team.

Sagna 6.5 : Played LB and did “OK” was solid and got forward well.

Ramsey 4.0 : I have to be honest, on this show he isnt in the same league as Cesc and looks weak and needs players around him to grow. Just like Cesc did.  But this team doesn’t have the big players around him. Ramsey is playing next to kids.

Frimpong 7.5 : He is an animal, won so many 50/50 tackles and was like a mini Essien. But he needs to calm down, after getting booked after 7mins the red card was waiting with his name on it after jumping into so many tackles he was always going to get 1 wrong. But I really like him. Didnt bottle it and showed alot of heart!

Walcott 3.5 : So poor, Lost the ball so many times. Nothing good on a positive note.

Nasri 6.5 : What can I say, our best player going forward and didnt let the team down. Played with heart and passion. If this was his last game for us we have seen a world class player play for this club. Shame we didnt reward him sooner and have allowed this to happen.

Arshavin 3.0 : Just like Walcott, Lost the ball countless times and didnt give us anything going forward.

Van Persie 6.0 : No support and this 4-5-1 system isnt working well for the team and for me not working for RVP. Needs help and is trying to much on his own.

    Aresne will not be sacked. Ever. Ever. Ever. So you need to accept that. Arsene Wenger has just saved the 70 million pounds this summer! Any board in the world would being fucking wenger and screaming ‘yes wenger we don;t need players your right wenger, you have done so much for us, you deserve respect wenger, yes wenger two bags full wenger’. But whats new? Nothing. You didn’t expect aresne to spend money this season did you? I didn’t so just calm down.

    The only thing I’m dissapointed in is that its either this year or next year he will retire and leave the club in shambles and leave the next manager with a sucidie rate higher then a chinise employee working for goverment!
    Also how can he let the talented but still kids in Landsbury, Fringpong and jenkinson fill in the gaps? They are all 2 years away from being starters yet wenger has no experince in the squad to contended against each other and learn. He is a fool but guess what? He ain;t going no were.

    Every keeps criticising Arshavin and I will admit that he lost the ball a lot but he did create the best chance which Van Persie should have finished. Ask yourself would Rooney or Aguero have missed that chance. Van Persie seems to have lost his appetite at the moment and I think if you are going to criticise Arshavin then you have to criticise Van Persie as well.

    As to the lack of spending on quality players it is hard to understand. I remember after the 2003/2004 season on the last day Robin Van Persie was introduced to the fans. Now it seems that if Arsenal do buy anybody else it will be done on the last few days of the transfer window. My worry is that there is no money to spend or that the board is waiting to see whether they qualify for the Champions league.

    I hope and pray that by the 31st of August we have a few new signings to give the players and the supporters a lift as it is very worrying at the moment.

    Thanks for reading but just remember it could be that Wenger is being restrained by the Board as to how much he can spend and of course he is not going to come out in public and complain about the board.

    All the abuse wenger and arsenal are getting makes me think that these “fans” are spurs fans in disguise. How any arsenal fan call call wenger a wanker and other names is disgusting, considering what he has done for the club. And I’m sick and fired of all these plastic fans who, just after two games, think we are now a mid table team. It’s a complete joke, and these people are not arsenal fans.

    You plastic fans are so out for wenger and the club, that you actually believe that Liverpool are nit a good side, and we should beat them, even if we have 3 top players out, one goes off with an injury, and one gets sent off. You twist and turn it so it looks Like everything is wengers fault.

    It’s a shame because wenger will go because of these fans. That’s it now. No matter what he does, these fans have it in for him. And how do you think all this negative will effect the players? Pretty bad I would say because these players don’t know if they will be next in line for the abuse.

    You have the cheek to call yourself arsenal fans!

    frimpong is one for the future as is miguel and jenkinson they where all fantastic today. ok so we lost with a team down to the bare bones. another bad refereeing decision suarez should surely have been flagged offside. last wk we were robbed of a penalty put rooney in the same situation as gervinho and the penalty would have been given and that fag barton would not have went anywhere near rooney, that would have been 3 points and a point today should have been the fair result, then things would not have seemed so bad. i seen more positives than negatives today i seen young players who stepped up to the occassion and looked very promising, i would have loved to have seen chamberlain come on for arshavin. nasri was good but he proved again today that when you need a player to get you a goal in a tight game he is not the player. wenger does need to spend no doubt about it. as the op said if vermaelen or rvp gets injured we are in deep trouble. arshavin ramsey and walcott where all very poor today. walcott is only good when he gets a ball over the top, with the ball at his feet he is completely useless. arshavin has lost that yard in pace and can no longer go past players. ramsey has had a bad start to the season seems like everything he tries is going wrong but you could see the disgust and agony on his face today so at least he is trying and will want to improve his performance. a top class defender a midfeilder and a direct striker someone with pace that can strike a ball and we are back in bussiness. come on arsene you know it makes sense this time next yr we will still be millionaires, not only that we will be league champions too.

    One thing is for sure, Wenger will not sign anymore CB (Cahill no way possible, even if he signs that’d be 16 year old kid) and he’s going to tell the excuse at the end of the season that “You’ve got be realistic that our team average age is 19-21, with this finishing on top 10 is not bad.

    Let’s see if Arsenal can finish top 10 this season. Good Luck Arsenal…Long Live Wenger…!

    True fans always stand behind the players, manager and the team! Stop acting like kids! Lets just pray for Arsenal to qualify for the champions league. If we do, Eden Hazard will join us. It will also make it a lot easier for Wenger to buy other quality players. Lets just face the hard facts here. Our team might lose some games at the start of this season. But when we eventually land the big guns our squad will be more than up for the task of challenging for the title again 🙂 I think the future of this club lays in the away bout against Udinese. If we cant qualify it will be almost impossible for us to even place top 4 in the premiership.
