RIP Arsenal : Buy cheap,sell high,rip off fans,win f**k all

No doubt many of you are in shock at the news that Cesc, Nasri and Clichy could be leaving the club for almost £65m? No doubt some of you are upset that the manager is thinking about replacing them with players like John O’Shea, Barton and Odemwingie? No doubt some of you are angry that the likes of Denilson, Rosicky, Almunia are still at the club… Welcome to the real world and life under Arsene Wenger since 2005

This is nothing new… Wenger has been doing this for years. Selling our best players to the highest bidder, regardless if they are our rivals (Adebayor & Toure) and not invested that money back into the team on quality and signed cheap replacements… Do you really think that when we cash in on the likes of Cesc and Nasri that Wenger will turn over a new leaf and start spending on players like Benzema and Mata? Wenger will do what he has always done. He will cash in on our best players and sign cheaper, untested players from france, kids or stop gap signings like Squilliaci Silvestre, Campbell, Lehmann.

Can you really blame players for wanting to leave and for losing faith in Wenger?

We have all known for some time that we have been weak at the back and have needed 2 powerful CB but yet Wenger has faffed around for years and not addressed this. Players want to win things and just because Wenger and the current board have ZERO ambition in life other then make a profit and finish in the top 4, you cant ask players like Nasri, Cesc and soon RVP to be happy with this mentally and keep dreaming that next season we will be that superpower and new Barca that Wenger thinks we will. How much longer can we dream this?

People that have followed this blog know this is not a knee-jerk reaction. We have said this for a long time, and Wenger is the root of ALL our current problems at the club.

The board are to blame for giving him the power to handle non footballing issues and almost making him unsackable. His job/role should be nothing more then managing the team and tactics.. Not sorting out the clubs finances. How did we get to this stage where we are allowing players to leave and not tied them down to new long term contracts a long time ago. Now we are going to lose Nasri for the same price as Henderson and Clichy for £7m.. But this is nothing new. Cole/Flamini where the same. Who is allowing this to happen?

But having said I dont even trust Wengers tactics anymore. His current 4-5-1 with wingers on the wings has to be 1 of the most frustrating systems I have ever seen in my 30 years of watching the gunners. We keep the ball, pass from side to side and refuse to test the keeper when given a chance. And then we finally cross the ball into the box with is normally a bad ball in or when its a decent cross we have nobody in the middle.

And Arsenal want to charge us 6.5% more to see this next season?

Arsenal have become the most expensive football team in Europe to support..FACT!! With that you would think/hope that we invested in World Class players… Do you remember when we moved from Highbury we were told that we would now be able to fight with Man Utd for the best players in the world?…Look at us now? Selling our best players to Man City or anybody who is willing to give us the best price like a cheap whore.

It kills me to say this but RIP Arsenal FC, You have taken fans like me who have supported the club for over 30 years and ripped our hearts out with this lack of ambition and profit making project. I wont be spending any money towards the club on new kits or any merchandise in the future and I advise all Arsenal fans to do the same and make a stand. Turn up to the stadium in black and when they say ” today’s attendance is 60.012″ and you look around and see 1000s of empty seats thing to yourself was lift at Highbury so bad that we moved to this?

Wenger has turned us into a farm, producing cattle and a feeder club for the clubs willing to spend.

I cant take this anymore.. What has our club become?

And people still trust this man and the board?….Go ahead, call me plastic, tell me to f**k off down the lane. Nothing you say to me will make me feel anymore lower then what I currently feel.

Next season Im sure we will see Wenger smashing more bottles of water, I just hope that this summer is his last and we can get back to being a club that wants to win things again soon and not a club thinking about the pound notes.

First it was Ade and Kolo, now its Cesc, Nasri and Clichy… Next it will be Van Perise.. Robin told Dutch radio last night “we are talking yes, but I want to win trophies and if I don’t think i can, I won’t sign,this summer will decide”

Go ahead, tell me how the likes of JET are going to be the new drogba, tell me to go and support Utd or City.

I really don’t care anymore .. If this is the way you want the club to be handled then stick by Wenger and the board. if you can still trust this man then you keep dreaming.

Wenger and the board must wake up or leave this club.

    I agree. Arsenal is a good profitable company not a club to win trophies. No wonder the directors sold shares for a huge profit!

    The ONLY news so far is this… We’ve got Gervinho coming. The rest is just speculation, whinging and panic over NOTHING. Every year we get speculation about our best players, and we were linked with nearly 200 players. My advice to you is to CALM DOWN you woman. This club is run better than ANY OTHER in europe… you ignorant fool. CHILL OUT

    @Dave…couldn’t agree more…Three quick points. 1) Henderson is English, equaling an inflated price. 2) name a club that allows its fans to make calls on players and tactics. 3) Football in Europe has evolved in to a multi-billion dollar industry. Which in turn, has changed the way clubs and owners opperate. Even more so if there is not a “sugar daddy” involed.

    The owners/board control the purse strings so perhaps you should look to them. With the new single owner & recent statements I do believe it’ll be a busy and productive off season.

    Either you believe in the future & enjoy the team or you don’t. Maybe you should find another team to “support”.

    actually Paul, there is another option, an embarrassing option which you people who support the board, wenger and his players, don’t take into consideration. There’s a segment of observers such as myself who are not arsenal supporters, but who follow arsenal for the comedy. Go ahead and tell me to “support” another team and I will respond with a full belly-laugh. I hope everything stays exactly as it is at arsenal because it’s one of the biggest jokes going and gives me more laughs than just about any comic medium. Run by laughingstocks and supported by laughingstocks. The collapse to 4th place last season was deliciously satisfying, and this season I look forward to more hilarious failure and comical excuses 😉

    When you idiots support the board with comments like this, it only makes their conviction in running the club more stable! This article is 100% correct! L Everyone seems to think if he leaves the club dies as if we had no success before! Remember gerogre graham? He won us the same amount of trophies in 9 years as wenger has even one in europe. Its take wenger 15 years to achive what he did and half the success was based on Grahams back four! Now we will lose Nasri, Fabergas and clichy in one summer and i know we will not invest in a world class players but ponetinal!The same Pontenial as bedthner and densilon? But we get called plastic because we want to win things? You are the plastic fans that only support arsenal for Fabergas and wenger and don’t the history of the club!! Do you know who perry groves is? Liam Brady? How about David Roscatle? You don’t the histroy of the club and thats why you have no real attachment to the club… When Cesc leaves so will Nasri and even the loyalty of RVP will go… Do we blame them? No we shouldn’t! Yeah they might leave for more money, sure but when Nasri wants 110,000 a week and is on 80,000 its not much! Why not pay you best player the highest slaary? But i guess i’m Plastic! I guess the club will go backrupt if we pay him 30,000 pounds a week right? My bad. The second reason he shouldn’t blame them is they want to win and see their ambitions met. RVP and Fabergas were in the world cup final last year… Now they play for 4th place every year… But i’m plastic because 4th place isn’t our right its a privledge right? You may be right… But guess what this club isn’t finisninh 4th next season… My odds are 6th or 7th! The fans that don’t see the meltdown of arsenal (ohh its happening and don’t be ignorrant in saying its a over reaction) are retarded or their children of incest, either way your not real fans! If this was an over reaction I dobut there would be decession within the borad between stan, hiil-wood, that fat guy and that women (don’t know there names lol)! Wenger wouldn’t be coming out in the public and adressing letters would he? If everything was fine at the club then these desprate measures wouldn’t be need to be taken… But i’m plastic what do i know.

    The answer to this question is simple, folks. 1) Sack Wenger, or somehow get him to change his ways 2) Organise a better back four, a better keeper, and a better strikeforce 3) Blow up the board (NB: This is not for the lulz, these guys are screwing our hopes over).

    One more suggestion…buy CONSISTENT and TALENTED players. Not just talented. And they don’t all have to be young. 😛

    1) there’s still a long way to go in this transfer window
    2) don’t believe the newspapers
    3) would you prefer a manager that buys high and sells cheap
    4) Mabs, george graham was a good solid manager but his record looks really poor compared to wenger, who has definitely been the most best manager we’ve had since chapman. Are you counting the tin-pot cup and Charity shield in Grahams ‘trophies’?.Wenger’s been managing in handcuffs for the last 7 years and I’m not sure they’re been fully removed yet.
    Pretty much every team out there wants Wenger to leave us so that they can employ him as their manager to get them to (or keep them at) the top. That doesn’t mean he doen’t make mistakes (he sure does!) but which manager doesn’t?
    And how much humble pie will you eat if we do finish 4th or better next season?
