Arsene Wenger believes in this team we have, he has said on numerous occasions that we have the fire power to compete with anybody in any competition. He states that the only thing missing with this present team is confidence, he also states that the spirit in this team is first class and the players we have have immense talent. At this present time of the season we have been eliminated from The Capital One cup we are 20 points behind the current leaders in the league, but we are still in the FA Cup The Champions League and sitting in sixth place in the league so it is still mathematically possible to win that as well.
Arsene Wenger has said that the league is probably out of our grasp now but who knows, he has said that if we drop more points we stand to lose out on a fourth place spot for a Champions league place, at the moment that does not seem the most important thing for this season, but survival is. We have eight days left of the transfer window. and up to now we have added no new players, we have returned many bad performances in, and the team we have now have very little left in them. Our squad is weak we have very little spirit despite what the Manager says, he’s right about the confidence, but sadly that will not come back by bad results or being told how good they can be.
This Club is due a major shake up from Share holders down to ball boys. For Arsenal to get the Great back into it changes are needed. Arsenal FC have not brought top quality replacements for several years, all clubs sell players and Arsenal are no different, all the great names of talented Arsenal players of the past are not here now, they have gone but we have not replaced with the same kind of player. Cesc Fabregas £35 million we sold him for. Thierry Henry £25 million, Robin Van Persie £22 million to name just a few, but our biggest buy was 15 million Andre Arshavin 4 years ago. Arsenal for whatever reasons are letting the standard of Arsenal players go down they are milking the cash cow sell high and buy cheap. Arsene Wenger is the man in charge of all football related matters’s of the club, its his responsibility to keep the standards up, but they are dropping. Our financial people are telling whoever will listen that a transfer Kitty is available for the manager to use, as and when he needs too. Figures of £70 million plus have been bandied about but probably that will now be put aside to cover the lack of Champions League football next season or we will be told by Wenger that he doesnt feel the need to spend it as the quality was not there.
When looking at who we have sold and who we have brought it is quite evident that the money is not equalled out , many millions have been made by our sales than what we have spent, so where is the problem. Its our understanding that Wenger runs the football side and others run the business side so where is the money, season tickets are the most expensive out of all the clubs in our division, so supporters are not benefitting so where is that money. We have currently many players out on loan, many have said they will never play for Arsenal again, we also have players who we cannot sell that are still in contract, Players that we hardly ever use these players some of who are having their wages paid by the clubs they are loaned out to, may never play for Arsenal again so what is the point.
How can a Manager be allowed to carry on like this when its obvious to everybody that Arsenal are only going in one direction. For eight years now we have not been in a winning final, we have not won the league in fact we have not won anything. Where the manager takes praise for top four finishes, and that has been seen as a successful season. We have seen New managers at other clubs takeover and many are above us now in the league, where we stick with the same old tactics that are proving to be unsuccessful, theirs are working. Where they are looking to win everything Wenger is only looking to keep making money, this has got to stop. A thriving business runs on investment, earn money and reinvest. Successful clubs use the money earned to make their clubs more successful and ultimately earn more money, but Arsenal’s reinvestment is miserly in comparison. The Board show no ambition or foresight and do not force Arsene it seems to do whats needed, they need to hold him accountable for results and actions and not be satisfied with being also-rans.
Arsene Wenger is Struggling his team is struggling to, the window is open to relieve the pressure but Wenger still waits, Points in the league have been dropped since the window opened we have gained no points at all in the last two games and still Wenger waits, many top players are looking for new clubs so plenty of talent about, no news from our club on trying to sell our deadwood off. Eight days left will Wenger feel more comfortable when the window closes, will he insist that the talent was not as good as he has already, do we have to wait for the summer window where we can start again, or do we look for a replacement Manager that will make the changes needed to make us Great again.
