Alan Pardew claims Arsenal’s £10m bid for Cabaye is disrespectful to Newcastle and the player, as Newcastle were thrashed 4-0 by a Man City squad playing fluid football thanks to some of their new arrivals. I find this Cabaye bid to be disrespectful to us Arsenal fans. We have been linked the whole Summer with signing Fellaini, Rooney, Fabregas, Suarez, Higuain, Gundogan, and Lars Bender. Instead, we make a bid for a French player on Newcastle!
What I find ridiculous is that Wenger assured us that he was up 24 hours a day looking for signings that are only of the “top” quality. Are you honestly expecting me to believe that Cabaye is better than the current rubbish that we have? If this isn’t a panic buy than I don’t know what is. Also, if this is a player that Wenger has been looking at, why is it we have waited until after our first game of the season to make a bid for him? Unless we sign some players that are actual quality, not Wenger quality, we are going to be fighting for fourth yet again which is so frustrating. Look at Tottenham, they have spent £50+m on players without selling Gareth Bale. Do you honestly expect us to compete with them. The most frustrating thing about this shambolic Arsenal board is that we have the money to spend yet they are refusing to spend it! Fucking spend £60m on Suarez and £30m on Fellaini or Bender. These are players that will help us win the league.
One more thing to point out, Man City were said to have overspent on Fernandinho and Jesus Navas. If you watched City rip Newcastle apart earlier today, then you will see how much they overpaid for these players, who Wenger could have easily have signed. Chelsea were also very impressive yesterday in the first half. They spent the money last Summer and this Summer and they are favourites to win the league. Spend some fucking money or get out!
