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..

    What a muppet you really are. Even fans of your own club realist you’re a massive idiot. Why not try and write properly, rather than this contrary for the sake of it nonsense?

    Arsenal are a great club, but my word you’re a goon.

    Worst blog and blogger I have ever read. Jesus you probably blame Wenger for mommy and daddy not hugging you enough when you were a kid. Christ you blame everything thats wrong with Arsenal football club squarely on Arsene Wenger’s shoulders. Forget about all the success he brought, forget about that without him we wouldn’t be able to attract world class players and forget about our cheap ass board. Oh no it’s all Wenger’s fault. You bloody idiot have you even seen Cana play?

    Trust me, this Cana bloke is the next Cantona – he’ll end up at Manure next season. Sunderland have got an absolute steal and it defies belief how Arsenal / Liverpool etc have let this one get away.

    While I disagree (again!) with your comments, I dont dispute your right to express your opinion.
    Why not do it with more class though? Why not ask the question of the readers – “has Arsene missed the boat?” instead of “Wenger is a mug”. I think far more people would respect your opinion if you had a bit more professionalism and pride in your blog. I appreciate the importance of a catchy headline and article, but to be taken seriously as a blogger/journalist you must try to present both sides rationally, while still being allowed to voice your own opinion. Its only fair.
    Fair dues though, youre sticking your neck out. If Song/Denilson have a breakthrough season, or if we win something, all your credibility is gone. I have to admire you putting your money where your mouth is I suppose! But we are all Gooners, and we are able to do better than squabble.
    As for Cana, Im no expert on him, but if Madrid, Barca and all the top clubs are looking for CMs and he went to Sunderland for 5M, I think Ill trust Wenger and his scouts on that one. (though I hope he does sign a CM)

    The worst part is that he said we are lookin at 2 – 3 signings more of experienced players and Cana is an excellent midfielder, just what he needed. It really bloody hurts cause he is gone for 5 million to a club like Sunderland, fukin twat I swear!!

    LOL. Marseille bought M’bia for a reason, Cana isn’t the same player Liverpool and Arsenal were looking at last season. You do know players can get worse right? If we were looking at him last summer it doesn’t mean he is still the same quality this summer. The fact is, Marseille didn’t want him and thats why they let him go for such a measley price.

    Sunderland is a team on the up and Arsenal is a team going down?
    LOL go back to your shit hole.

    This guy looked like just the sort of midfield player we were looking for. Right age,right price.Solid in the tackle.
    But do we really need him? When we have world class players in midfield already!Eboue,Song,Denilson. etc…… Oh,I forgot i’m pissed. Get with the programme Arsene, or we’re Fucked!

    July 25, 2009 at 9:47 pm

    You gooners DO need a player with some testicles in your midfield but Cana looks like a huge liability on the pitch. I think the mackems are gonna be playing a lot of games short handed this season…

  14. Ross Gooner

    July 25, 2009 at 9:53 pm

    What a load of bollocks, by a complete and utter thick twat. This guy runs around kicking people like Robbie Savage on speed. Do you not think that with Wengers scouting network (particularly in France), if this guy was any good and available for 5 mill we would not have snapped him up?

    I am not going to slag off Sunderland. If he is what they need an it works out for them, far play. However Sunderland are not Arsenal, they are not our level. So the fact he has gone there probably says he is not yet up to the standard required at our club.

    Best of luck for next season SAFC.

    what u said is totally correct! as long as shareholders are getting steady returns with a decent debt 2 equity ratio, they really wont give 2 hoots about arsenal winning trophies, remember people football is a business. Look at the glazers and utd with a gearing ratio in the 90% figures and they still find money to invest!

    What a twat ArsenalAction is? Next time try to write something sensible in order to attract hits. Commenting “Wenger is a mug” can just prove few things:-

    1. You are desparate for seeking attention (which you have now achieved),
    2. Had no idea about the club history, infact I think that you recently started supporting Arsenal when we starting winning while playing attractive football (that too under the guy you branded mug). Have no idea about what was pre-Wenger, pre Graham era. Try this link to refresh your memory http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arsenal_F.C.#Honours.

    Who writes this shit? We don’t need a thug like Cana – leading with the elbow and two-footed tackles. All he will do is pick up red cards. The EPL is full of muppets such as this, but, you know what, they never play for the big clubs. He is just someone who runs about kicking people.

    You Arsenal fans think you are the only team to sign a decent player. Wenger admitted to interest in Cana, and Chamakh. If we sign Chamakh as well you lot will all be on here saying Chamakh is shite as well, because he chose to come to Sunderland. Granted some of our players are poor, but that’s down to Roy Keane not Bruce. We are improving our squad hopefully, but as we found last season after signing Cisse, a big name doesnt mean a good player, he was piss poor, poor touch, no team ethic and pretty gutless. We have to endure some dire games, watching Arsenal week in week out would be a dream. The financial side of it is obvious, you are penniless otherwise Wenger would have signed Cana, and we would not be even competing for Chamakh. If your problems are enabling us to sign these players, you need to look higher than Wenger and at your board. If Wenger cant compete in the market that’s not his fault. Fans relating fees to quality have a point but its not always accurate. How many shite players have Newcastle signed for £10million. You have the best footballing set up in the world, so stop bleating and be patient.

    July 28, 2009 at 10:58 pm

    I’m Albanian just so i watched a lot of Lorik Cana’s games for our national team and for O’Marseille too. All i have to say is that Arsenal made a big mistake for not signing him, just as Tevez and players of his calibre who first played for not that strong teams in EPL but look where are they now?! Lorik Cana is one of the best MDF in Europe i’ve seen most of the games of him especially playing for our national team albania and he made spectacularl appearances, against Holland he was keeping Van Nistelroy and during the all game Nistelroy didnt have a chance or any shot in our goal at 90’min the refeere sent Cana off because he headbuted Nistelroy and during the last game betwen Albania – Portugal if u can download the game somewhere u will see what he did to Ronaldo he never let him touch the ball!
    Trust me after a year in EPL all the big teams will be after him! Somebody said that no other clubs were after him. That is not true. Hamburger, Werder Bremen, Tottenham Hotspur, Liverpool and Arsenal were after him this summer even Real Madrid were interested but its they fault that didnt bid for him.

    Check this also the game Albania – Portugal 1 – 2


    P.S Wenger always liked Cana, he invited him when he was only 16 years old on try outs for Arsenal but during the visa issues he couldnt come in Arsenal!

    Sorry for my bad english, i hope u understand what i wanted to say!

  24. TheAlbaniaN

    July 28, 2009 at 11:00 pm

    p.s i forgot to say that in the game that refere sent off cana Nistelrooy scored a goal after 90 minutes when cana was out!

  25. David

    July 29, 2009 at 4:51 pm

    I’m not an arsenal fan but the facts are…

    *Multiple clubs including Everton and Hamburg, who have a very good record of succesful investment were in for him.

    *the fact that he signed for Sunderland doesn’t necessarily mean he is poor. Sunderland signed Phillips for 300k, and look at Steve Bruce’s record: Palacios, Luis Valencia, Figueroa, Zaki and Heskey were all excellent signings for Wigan that would arguably ALL have been successful at Arsenal.

    *Wenger not thinking he is worth 5m doesn’t mean he wasn’t good enough. Wenger also didn’t think Alonso or Yaya Toure, Ribery, Ben Arfa were good value, but surely he would bite Liverpool, Bayern and Barca etc hand off for those players now at the price they were.

    Whether Cana is a missed opportunity or not remains to be seen, but Arsenal fans should ask themselves this: If Cana at £5m isn’t good enough, what will Wenger need to buy someone who IS good enough? Because it seems to me there is a fundamental difference between the figures quality players command and the amount of money Wenger is willing to spend. IF, as rumoured, Wenger was reluctant to meet the 16m Arshavin cost, I can’t help but think that another Vieira or Roy Keane could come along at, say, £15m and Arsene will get cold feet again. Cana is just one player that symbolises a much larger and concerning trend- Wenger’s reluctance to spend money on obvious problem areas of the team unless the deal is absolutely ludicrously good. I understand that deals like Toure for 150k and Vieira for 3.5m do happen, but it seems that he is too happy to risk searching for another of those rather than address the problem at greater financial expense in return for security.

    I think cana looked like a decent player he has a great engine and would be 100% commited in every match , but he does look a bit clumsy in the callenge, something i guess he could work on .wengers biggest mistake was letting flamini go last season and keeping adebayor , he needs to sign hangeland and sakho, i would push gallas into the DM role something im sure he would excell at. i would buy another DM , i suppose that could have been cana, and also buy dzeko or huntelaar , wenger is buying too many players who might be able to pass a ball but they cant and wont track back and put a challenge in, he is forgetting that our invinicibles had skillfull players but they also were not scared to stick a foot in, i would get rid of denilson and diaby , song showed signs of being a decent player so would keep him for another season. we need that balance of skill and muscle back in the team , for instance viera and petit were both extremely strong and commited but they also were very skillfull had great vision and pin point passing abilities , and who by the way had loads more skill and vision than any of our midfeilders at present fabregas excluded . i do realise that these type of players are hard to find but surely there are some players out there that are similar , im sick of these weedy small guys that think their only purpose is to play pretty football and if another team roughs them up they go crying to mammy (wenger) and then in turn he complains about teams kicking his bunch of poofs where was our fantastic skillfull players against man u in europe they could not string 2 passes together, wenger is a great manager but he needs to realise that pretty football is one half of the equation the other half is steel, im not too disappointed that toure is gone he was good but what good is a defender that cant win any headers, vermaelen and hangeland would be a great patnership, the reason i would push gallas into midfield is the fact he pretty much sucks as a defender and i really do think he would savour a DM role he has all the qualities he can tackle he can pass he has vision and he has a never say die attitude id love to see him in this role. also he would get a few more goals from this position. sakho would be a great addition and as for that other DM we had him flamini and to rub salt in the wounds let him go on a free

    i think Cana would have helped Arsenal staying at the top 4 for sure,,that doesnt mean they wont though i hope they do…and guys by beeing a Arsenal fan doesnt mean wou dont wach any other teams like someone said above,,,

    Arsenal have this strange policy which keeps only young players and if a player reachies a cretain age they sign only a year contract…

    Cana is a great player, Arsenal should have bought him for central midfield grit until Denilson and Song mature more. Neither of the two seem capable of world-class action at the moment, Cana would have been a great transition player. There were more teams than Sunderland looking for him.. Everton, Arsenal, Liverpool … and more… certainly a player with a fierce passion perfect for the English game.

If your not gonna support our manager just fuck off to the spuds.. dont forget what wenger has done for this club…. anyway… song is more than gd enough to be dm… its a centre back we need. Idiots.

    Cana would’ve been a great help!!! Arsenal needs tough/agressive players that stop counterattacks!!! and he’s got heart smth that most football players don’t have anymore….he’ll give his heart out in the field for his team!! i’ve seen him play live!!! I’m pretty sure he’ll do good in Sunderland too he just needs to get used to the english football the first few games n once he gets on his comfortable zone you’re gonn’ see that Drogba/Anelka/Rooney/ etc will think twice about keeping the ball and dribbling!!!

    I was studying something else about this on another blog. Interesting. Your perspective on it is diametrically contradicted to what I read originally. I am still mulling over the opposite points of view, but I’m leaning heavily toward yours. And irrespective, that’s what is so super about modernized democracy and the marketplace of ideas on-line.
