That’s it then, season over – well apart from the Champions League Final and I’m interested in that as much as I am watching paint dry!
Yep, I’ll watch it, in hope that neither side win 😉
Six seasons have now gone by without winning anything and it’s far too long for a club like ours, we all know that.
Next season it will all begin again, ‘Arsenal, who haven’t won anything in six years’ comments every time we play, and how we bottled the Carling Cup, how if we had added a quality centre half and goalkeeper we would have done so much better, how we faded in the last third of the season, blah blah blah…..
Well, now it truly is time to stop all this, stop feeding the media the lines they love to spout and there is only one group of people who can do that and that is the Arsenal Board, starting with Arsene Wenger.
I don’t think any of us hope in reality for a 50M player signing, Torres has been a good example of why spending that kind of money doesn’t always work. Yes, he may come good again next season and score 30 goals but he was bought in January and was meant to be the man to get the goals to win the Champions League and the Premier League, it didn’t work and now the manager who ‘bought him’ is out of a job. Personally, I think he was a Roman purchase, one that backfired badly.
In fact I think the most some fans have asked Wenger to spend on one player is £25M and that is to get Benzema, the striker seems to be the one most fans want us to sign. If I could pick one player to be our first signing of many, it would be a tossup between Gary Cahill and Ashley Young, hopefully we will buy both, and very soon.
So, back to the six years – Arsenal fans have stood by the club they love and by the manager who has been at the helm during those last six unsuccessful seasons but many are beginning to get restless.
Now is the time for change, the manager needs to change his ways in the transfer market, no Cygans or Silvestres, no Denilsons or Bischoffs, real players please, that’s all we ask for!
Personally, I am not precious about the name of the player he buys as long as whoever they are have heart, passion and commitment to play for our club and with pride.
We don’t need to sign players who demand a big wage; we need players who are prepared to earn whatever wage they are offered, players who will play hard and until the final whistle of every game.
No sulkers, no shirkers and no big egos thanks Wenger….
No, you go out there into the transfer market and finally buy players that Arsenal Fans deserve to see wearing the Red and White of the club!
Do that Arsene and finally the fans might just get what they deserve rather than having to suffer all the bad press about how we haven’t won anything for so long and how we lack ‘what it takes’ to be winners..
After all, it’s been six years of waiting…….
Finally, how good is to know we have a player who is putting his club before his country?
It was confirmed yesterday that Jack Wilshere will get a good rest during the summer. Pearce had this to say:
I spoke to Jack last week and he explained that while he told me in March that he wanted to be part of the squad, he now feels he is not in the best condition to take part in the finals.
That is based on the number of games he has played for Arsenal this season, sports science data which Jack was presented with last week and concerns he has for his fitness looking ahead to next season.
We already knew Mr Pearce, but thanks for confirming it!
Well done Jack, he’s listened to Wenger, he listened to others but most importantly, he has listened to his body and realised that if he played during the coming summer he would probably miss the beginning of next season for his club, a club that means so much to him!
That’s what you get from a proper Arsenal man Arsene, a player who puts his club before his country!…..
Pre-season will see us travel to Malaysia in July to play in two matches – the first is against Malaysia XI at the Bukit Jalil Stadium, Kuala Lumpur on Wednesday, July 13, kick off 8.45pm local time. The second fixture is to be confirmed.
Asia here we come then, has to be better than Austria……
