When you are manager of a club for 16 years, you usually have reasons to justify why we have such a long serving manager. For the first eight years, it would be impossible for anyone to believe that there would be a reason for Wenger to go. He completed the double twice and won the league unbeaten. If you were to erase those years and start with 2006, the only reason he is still manager of the club is because of his financial abilities.
Everyone in the world knows that we need signings. You don’t have to be a neurosurgeon to figure that much out. This interview highlights just about everything wrong with Wenger and his transfer policy.
“There is nothing to explain,” Wenger said. “First of all, you don’t know what we have done, you don’t know if we did bid and you have come to a conclusion without knowing everything that has happened.
“It is quite amazing that all of the people don’t know and yet they always have opinions about things they don’t know.
“I won’t explain to you what happened. It is not down to me to explain to you everything I do. It is impossible.
“If we do a transfer, we will announce it. We always inform you. As for the rest, you have to leave us to do our own things.
“We don’t want to hurt anybody, not Newcastle, not anybody. You can’t reproach us on one side for not buying and yet on the other side when we try to buy to reproach us as well. That is a bit contradictory.
“I would just like to reiterate to you that in the last 16 years we have been very successful with transfers – if you look at the players who play tomorrow, they are top quality players, and you should never forget that.”
Cabaye is not a player that we need and is the first player this transfer window that I hope we don’t sign. It is so depressing knowing that Spurs are more than likely to break the £100m mark this transfer window when they don’t even have Chmapions League football. What’s the fucking point to celebrating finishing fourth if we aren’t going to sign some world class players. It’s ridiculous to so many extremes.
I highly doubt that Cabaye is a player that Wenger wanted to sign if we didn’t lose 3-1 to Aston Villa. Maybe a year ago but certainly not now. if you look at the playerse we have been linked with this transfer window, it is so depressing that the club has failed to sign any of these players. Why not make a fucking £50m bid for Suarez or Rooney? Why not bid for Fellaini or Bendner? At least sign someone we need that is cheap, like Julio Cesar.
Also, when Wenger says he has been successful in transfers, that is so far away from the truth it is embarrassing to say that he is a top class manager. Look at the top clubs. They signed players who win them games. We sign players to sell in a couple of years to mediocre teams across Europe.
I am looking forward to seeing who these top quality players are that he said are going to play tomorrow, because obviously they aren’t on our team roster. If Wenger seriously believes that this squad is good enough to win the Premier League, then he is fucking insane. The most poignant thing about this whole saga is that there is no way that Wenger is trying to win the league, and he is doing absolutely nothing about it. I actually believe that Tottenham can win the league if they keep Gareth Bale, just because they strengthened their squad so well this Summer. Liverpool is another club that on paper is now much better than Arsenal.
Open up the cheque book or get out of here Arsene!
