Before all you Arsene Wenger loving fans leave a comment slating the title – read on!
Is he a fool or a highly paid scape goat?
6 million a year buys you an awful lot of silence from a manager to handle all the criticisms while the board ripen to cow, sell and line their pockets…!
For a while I have had my own theory about Arsene Wenger ‘carrying the can’, it’s not one I have just come up with, I have been saying it for a few seasons now.
Then I read an article in one of the daily papers about how the current board (not Stan) haven’t coughed up a penny towards buying new players.
No, they just preferred to sit around on their butts and sting every Arsenal fan in the pocket and use that money to pay for the few odd and sods that Wenger has been allowed to buy over the last few year.
At the same time of course, we have sold a few players for vast amounts of money and I am sure that any of even the worst mathematicians would be able to calculate that the money we have raised through selling players is vastly more that what Arsene Wenger has spent on building a stronger squad and taking our club to the highest level.
The season after we moved to the Emirates, Arsene Wengers activity in the transfer market changed – as said before, our manager had bought players who left Arsenal fans drooling. Watching us play over the 7/8 seasons after Wenger became manager was just a joy to behold.
We fought tooth and nail with Fergies lot, we wiped the floor with the Chavs sometimes, we battered the Swampies and Man City were never at the races, let alone near the top four!
Oh, those were the days, weren’t they?
Wenger smiled, the players smiled too – they fought hard and seldom switched off until the final whistle blew, fans hardly ever left the stadium early either – all because our side was something special.
Arsene Wenger had fastly become every Arsenal Fan’s ‘friend’ – he got us back to being at the top and in such a short space of time.
Many footballing fans then started to ‘support’ Arsenal because of him – so much so they can see little wrong in him even today, when everything is going belly up at OUR club.
Arsene Wenger showed us what a top manager he really is the day he arrived at Arsenal Football Club.
He has changed though and sadly for the worse.
But – if we could all get to the nitty gritty of Arsenal, is it Arsene Wenger who has changed, or have the Arsenal Board pulled the purse strings in to almost closed over the past 4/5 seasons? Have they told the media one thing about how much money there is for Wenger to spend, but told him different?
Have they been so concentrated on clearing OUR club’s debt they have done it to the detriment of things on the pitch?
If my theory is right, Wenger truly is a fool – why put yourself on the line for them, why leave yourself open to all that comes your way these days?
Just look at what it is doing to the man.
If I am right Arsene, it’s time for you to stop telling us all you still believe in project youth, you know, I know and the true Arsenal fans know it’s had it’s day, it doesn’t work.
Go out there at the end of the season and tell us all you have never had the money to spend since we left Highbury, then tell them you have got some now, then please us all buy telling us:
‘I will be spending it this summer’….
Don’t be a fool Arsene!
You are far too clever and if my theory is right, you don’t deserve to be looked upon as one either……
That’s if for today, have a good one ….
Don’t forget readers, if you have a view, feel free to send it in as a post and let it be discussed among us all….
