The problem with Wenger is he wants everything on the cheap

in response to your article gaffer, totally disagree with your views.

Wenger is stubborn and is 2 tight for his own good. He has had loads of time to find a DM and still we wait. He has had loads of time to find a powerful CB and still we wait. He knew all summer that Adebayor would be sold. AND STILL WE WAIT!

The problem with Wenger is he wants everything on the cheap. Why go shopping at Harrods if you don’t have the money in your pocket to spend? You might as well stick to Primark if your a cheapskate. But WE HAVE the money and still he refuses to spend it? WHY?

You say he is looking after the clubs interests? But he signs and sells the players. How is he looking after the clubs interests when we have not won anything since 2005? He is looking at the financial side more then the winning of prizes side.

The man has over £30m in his pocket but yet he is still counting the pennies and trying to get players on the cheap. Last summer he had the chance of signing Barry or Alonso and he missed out just because he didn’t want to pay the extra few million.

Well “he who waits will miss out”

Wenger is toothless in the transfer market, You compare him to Arthur Daley, I think he is more like a homeless bum looking into the bins and begging on the streets for some spare change. Every summer its the same crap for us gooners. We are loyal fans, We are patients fans. Its time Wenger respected us more. This summer its the same shite, Wenger makes a joke of a bid to sign Melo and again we miss out…sounds familier?

As i have said before Wenger is lucky to have us. Since 2005 he has won nothing and still some fans think he is the best thing since sliced bread.

If Mr Wenger was at Real Madrid he would have been sacked a long time ago. Wenger has failed and let us down time and time again in the transfer market. We cant keep going on like this, David Dein was 100% when he said Arsenal are stone aged. Look at the Liverpool manager, He sells Alonso 48hrs later he has agreed a deal to bring in a replacement. Wenger lost Flamini more then a year ago and still we wait….That’s the difference in managers. Some managers have bottle and some are weeds.

I think wenger is a cleaver man, He cant lose…If Arsenal finish 4th he wins, Champions league football more money in the bank and all done on penny’s. People think he has done well. And this is why he never spends money….Why should he? If he was to spend £30m on a player and we finished outside the top 4 people would question his judgement and say ” He wasted money on players and we won nothing” Well people cant say that about Wenger coz he has not got the bollocks to do so…

He would rather play it safe and keep finishing 4th every season and reach the champions league. Wenger cant lose, If he wins nothing the fans still love him, If he sells our best players and never replaces them the fans still love him..What a bunch of Muppet’s you are..

Its time we told Wenger that HE HAS TO SPEND. 4th place is not good enough for us anymore….In fact i don’t even think we are going to finish 4th this summer. And then what? Well Wenger still knows RIGHT?

    I think your missing the bigger picture, you are right, we haven’t won anything since 2005, but your wrong in slating Wenger, here my opinion on why.

    Since wenger took over almost 13 years ago now, look at what he’s achieved…multiple trophies including 2 league and cup doubles, he has also managed to do this while 80% of the time there has been major boardroom troubles, major changes behind the secenes, yet we still find ourselves year in year out in the champions league….not only that but we have reached 2 semi finals and 1 finals during this period. Not bad, yes not as good as Man U, but Wengers not done yet.

    Now take a look at the youth system put in place since Wengers arrival, im sure your an Arsenal fan, and i’d expect you to know that on multiple occassions Wenger has stated it will take atleast 10 year if not more for our first batch of youth talent to come through…started out with senderos and cesc, and continues in the form of Jack Wilshire.

    So a combination of board room troubles, financing of a BRAND NEW 60,000 seater stadium, and the constant onslaught of ever rising wages and transfer fees, yet we finnish 90% top 4 since wenger, and now your slating his ways?

    Hmm he doesn’t spend a lot of money you say…well just say we did go out and spend 30m++ every transfer window a la Chelski Manure and the scoucers, how do you people think we are meant to breed our youth like that?

    In a few years when the Premier League can’t compete money wise with say La Liga and all the stars will flock there, it will be arsenal who will be left in best position, with a constant flow of talent coming through the youth system now, this will improve the first XI as well as provide financing from sale of players who don’t quite meet Arsenal XI expectations.

    Some people need to respect Arsene Wenger a little more for what he has achieved and done for my club, our club, Arsenal F.C, it’s not surprising though, with the new global appeal of the EPL and the massive increase in global fan base for almost all clubs, smaller and larger, some short sighted, newer, commertialised fans our my club, are bound to the glory, and don’t appreciate what Le Boss has done.

    You are entitled to your opinion, as am I, but i hope us gooners aren;t turning into this.

    Have you ever thought that the highly over-payed players that get payed for doing something there are supposed to love keep on blaming it on their managers or team mates when they don’t perform. Adebayor want to win trophies but being the quarterback on the team failed to improve his or anyone else game with his bad attitude.forgive me if I forget that football is a team sport. As we can see his increased wages did nothing for his moral and had him off balanced by the increased swelling of his already large ego. Long story short managing a team is easier when you are standing from a position of assumption looking in as we truely do not have the fly on the wall idea of what transpires within the club structure all else s assumption. As a fan it can be frustrating at times but what I have learned that a true fan never gives up on his club no matter what. Yes we all want to win but gone are the days when we had dedicated and loyal players who stuck with the club and improved over time.This is not EA FIFA 09/10 or PES 09,and playing such games have shown me that even making big name transfers does not ensure instant success. Each club needs to gel as a team , having players that want to stay around and be the best they can be for that team . Consider R.Giggs. P. Scholes two old vets that have stuck with Man U and held them together with their maturity and experience their love for the club is something u can’t buy. If every player that is developed by his team want to move onto a bigger team for bigger wages and get his 15 minutes of fame else where because the grass seems greener instead of staying and tapping into his true potential. Let them go. At this rate football will be a one club game where no-one has to challenge themselves against all opposition ,settling rivalries on the day. an furthering the development of future stars for years to come. I am sick of these big money transfers inflating players egos and also the clubs that are party to this. Many of them turn out to be a waste of money look at RMadrid with the entire dutch offensive line up but yet not succeeding. Relegating these players to surplus to requirement after one season. Do not let a well loved sport that has wowed us from generation to generation become a players trading stock market killing the game and all that it stand for

    Ever decide to visit a site just to get annoyed? Arsenal Action manages it every time for me.

    What a rubbish article.

    Daniel – thanks for spouting some sense but I think you are pissing in the breeze with the likes of Sinbad and his two brain cells (which are probably fighting each other for autonomy).

    Nice to see how many loser fans have written off Wenger and the team before a ball has been kicked. I wonder what you would do if we win something this season – it’s not impossible you know?

    Managers get sacked from Real even when they win the league. Who would want a crap job like that?????

    Jamie did it escape your attention we were challenging for FA & CL at the end of last season? That we were just 4 points off winning the league the season before? In spite of a litany of injuries we were and are not a million miles away.

    Nice to see you have given up all hope if us winning anything.

    The only real loser is fans like you with your hideous, negative mindset.

    just a quick thought…

    how many of these over priced, over paid players that are in the PL at the moment do you think will bugger off abroad when the 50% tax comes in for high earners?

    i wonder who will have the best team then when clubs have to count on there youth systems like back in the old days cos they cant attract the big names???

    u will all be hailing AW as a genius then, no doubt!

    He doesn’t buy pointlessly.

    He could buy more, he could go and spend around £16 million for an average winger or right back like certain clubs have done this window.
    Or he could try and get the best players he could.

    Verm was brought in as our CB problem sorter.
    Whether he is or not we will see but I doubt we paid 10 million for a naf centre back that won’t solve our problems.

    Sinbad, you’re a twat.
    You really think Wenger is happy to finish 4th?
    You really think it doesn’t hurt Wenger just as much as us to fail?
    You need to wake up, look around at the clubs you’re claiming are more “ambitious” than us and th managers who have more “balls” than Wenger!!

    Why do you think Wenger has the reputation for buying quality players and turning then into world class ones?
    Why do you think there are articles stating how Wenger competed and won league titles on a fraction of what Man U and Chelsea spent?

    Do you really want Wenger to spart splashing shit loads of cash on players he’s not 100% sure of?

    Wenger is stubborn, he is proud, he is set in his ways – but if you think he doesn’t badly want to win you’re a plonker!

    I believe he is looking right now for a CB who can also play RB. And he is probably looking for a DM too. Once he gets those we will have an awesome squad!!!

    I was just thinking about our options with our new formation 4-3-3. The possibilities are endless!!!

    I have a sneaking suspision that Wenger has been planning this for a while! He has played almost every striker we own out on the wing at periods during last season! Why? To help them develop their game, passing, defending, keeping possesion! Why? So that when we shift to 4-3-3 they can all play right across the pitch!!

    Fucking Genius!!!

    Also 4-3-3 makes SO MUCH MORE SENSE with the players we have.
    We have too much attacking talent to let it waste on the bench!
    This way we get to play 3 forwards in every game and Wenger can interchange then depending on who we’re up agaisnt!

    I can see us blowing everyone away!!!

    Bring it on!!!!!

    why do all you morons dismiss this article?? I am a long time gunners fan and have been a seat holder for the last 25 years, and honestly I am sick and tired of having the same old hope every summer being shot down by wenger. Sure he has developed an easy on the eye style, but it has no substance, no cutting edge, no defensive base to rely upon.

    We have been waiting 3 years for a replacement for sol campbell and 4 years for a vieira replacement, why does he not buy? because of his arrogant and stubborn attitude that at arsenal “we make superstars, dont buy them”. Well Mr. Wenger I put this to you, the only reason you still have a job is because you bought a guy named arshavin. It is so plainly obvious that signing a world class player like this has completely changed the outlook of our otherwise mediocre team. Guys like Denilson and Bendtner and Song will be good players in 2 or 3 years, but we NEED experienced players to complement them and to help take some of the load.

    I’ll finish by saying that those who think we dont need another striker are seriously kidding themselves. Relying on two inhury prone forwards to supply most of our goals isn’t the answer, nor is a mediocre talent from france who is going to be involved in the African cup anyway. It is a disgrace that he has let huntelaar go to milan for 13 absolute disgrace. He would have been the perfect signing, a pure finisher that we have lacked for too long. I truly hope eduardo can stay fit for this reason.

    Who are our targets now in the market? Hangelaand would be another terrific signing, but due to his tainted faith in his current centre backs he has yet to sign him, and now he is cup tied for the CL group stage. So which tall powerful CB do we go for now?

    And in regards to the DM position, we were close to signing melo a month ago, but all of a sudden the priority to sign someone in this position is on the backburner?

    Just someone explain why in five years we’ll be a huge force with a policy based on no spending and every year releasing decent experienced players. You can dispute how good Ady really was, but he was certainly better than Bendtner is right now. I accept that the latter may catch up and overtake the former in a couple of years, but we cant afford to wait.Even if he does, then we’ll sell him and start again, and you guys will still be saying have patiennce there’s this 16 year old genious coming through. This approach isn’t going to win anything.You’ve got to start asking what are the key financial incentives in Wenger’s contract
