Yes that’s right Mugs!!
Are you a season ticket holder? Perhaps you buy your tickets as and when you can?
Either way and just like me, we are all mugs!
We support a team that takes the piss out of us, from Stan down to Wenger there is always an excuse!
We pay the highest prices in the Premier League to watch some of the worst players we as fans have witnessed wearing the red and white shirt!
Why do we do it week in, week out?
Because it’s born in us, that’s why!
It’s certainly not for what we have had to suffer watching over the last few seasons is it?
Our club has sold, or let players run their contracts down and leave for free and replaced them with cheap substitutes, or as the latest fashion seems to be, allowed them to depart on loan deals whilst they get a visa or eventually leave.. JOKE!
We like a cheap deal and so often that cheap deal comes with consequences like a Visa!
However, that doesn’t seem to stop us!
We seem to do these for a couple of months with the kids, sometimes an entire season just to offload players like Bendtner or Denilson or to allow a player to work towards his visa/permit.
But all of this costs, we spend out on players who can’t solve the here and now, we pay them a wage – and that’s a wage that could fund a player who is ready for now, a player who could really change the current side so what is the point of looking so far to the future, when we can’t even get the present right??
We are broken at the heart of our defence, we were told we would get a loan player in to address this problem but since then we have all read/heard the club say that what’s the point as any loan player many not be fit and ready to make a difference before our injured players return!
Seems its ok to loan out but not loan in eh?
Excuses, excuses, excuses – we have heard them all!!
We have heard about enormous debts, we have many injuries, how players are very close to a comeback and they will be like ‘new signings’! Then there is ‘only so many quality players available at the moment, there are lots of wealthy teams searching who can pay more for the player’, and the one I like at the moment is:
‘The climate is not right’!!
What does that mean, is it raining, is it too hot, maybe a bit of fog, haven’t these negotiators got brollys? Ok, I jest a tad about the climate, we know Wenger is talking about the world of finance but either way, it’s just another reason given in attempt to justify not building on the current squad.
I think I have heard every excuse that is out there but Arsenal get away with it, year after year!!
You bet Stan’s bottom dollar we are!!
