So Wenger is going nowhere!
He has the unequivocal backing of Stan and his merry men for the foreseeable future!
Reports suggest that despite our battering by AC Milan and Sunderland, the Frenchman is safe in his role and when the summer transfer window opens he is to be given £55 million to spend of making our squad stronger.
I wonder if the board looked a little deeper into our crisis before telling the manager that he won’t be losing his £7 million for a while yet?
Obviously not, the continual defeats/draws with the neighbours, the regular hidings from the Mancs seems to not matter, let alone the dire displays that has seen us drop points to the sides fighting to stay in this league.
There we have it, the board see what Wenger is
not doing to be fine and dandy which to me suggests they lack the passion we all hoped they had.
Back to the £55 million, is that really a huge amount of money? Is it enough to really make a difference?
Well, if names like Mario Goetze, Lukas Podolski, Eden Hazard and Matias Suarez are truly on Wengers shopping list and of course assuming this is all true, that kind of money won’t get many on his shopping list will it?
Does that amount include any funds the manager can raise by selling of some of the deadwood or will that be an addition to the sum quoted?
Will Wenger be ‘instructed’ to spend all the money available to him? If not, there is no guarantee he will change his ways and buy experienced players like the ones named is there?
Or is it all just spin in any case….
Meanwhile, old Gooner George Graham, the man who knew who not to concede goals has spoken out:
Yes, Arsenal are in crisis. It has been slipping away for the last couple of years.
They’ve not been replacing those players who left four or five years ago.
They’re lacking leaders and the quality of the players they’re bringing in is just not up to the standard if you want to win the Premier League.
They’re playing Tottenham next week. Believe me if they lose that one, the fans will be upset.
Yes George, we will be upset, we already are!!
Next weekends fixture is massive, it always has been and always will be but this weekend it will matter more, we need to get ourselves back on track.
On track for what exactly you may think, well we have to get 4th place and we need to start winning again.
Would be a bit of a bonus if would could start on Sunday wouldn’t it?
Wenger when asked about the FA Cup & CL losses:
People are always asking the same question, but the first trophy is to finish in the top four and that is still possible for us, I believe that is vital for us, so let’s focus on that.
The financial trophy, and that’s exactly why Wenger has the ‘Unequivocal Backing’ of this current board…..
Have a good day all…
