Not everyone is a fan of Twitter and not everyone has an account, so in case you missed Arsene Wenger’s Q&A on there yesterday, here it is:
Q – 17 years ago, did you choose Arsenal because your name is Arsene?
A - Ha ha! Certainly not! Arsenal chose me and that was a huge honour – it’s a long love story because it’s 17 years.
Q – Ronaldo or Messi?
A – It’s difficult, Messi was on top until now but in the last year maybe Ronaldo is in front, he is very athletic.
Q – When you’ll get a top top quality coat?
A – Ha ha!
Q – Is there a Wenger version of the “hairdryer” treatment?
A – It can only be an exceptional behaviour and every manager uses it.
Q - What is your favourite hobby?
A – It is to read or watch political debates, or to walk or be outside in the nature.
Q – We have seen @JackWilshere play at many positions in the starting 11, but where’s his best position according to you?
A - Arsene says: ‘His best position is as a deep-lying midfielder, where he can be a distributor. He has a good burst and vision.
Q – Who’s the funniest player in your squad?
A – That’s difficult, I would say Wojciech – he likes a joke. Bendtner as well.
Q – If you could change one decision you made in your managerial career, what would it be?
A – Every season you make wrong decisions. You have to go with your gut feeling sometimes, but you learn and analyse.
Q – Chips?
A – Yes I like chips! But I try not to abuse it because I have a diet – I have to prepare like a player.
Here are a few questions our manager wasn’t so keen to answer:
These are some of the questions Wenger didn’t answer….
Have you ever considered a velcro fastening as an viable alternative for your inability to ‘do up’ your coat/sleeping-bag?
What’s the point in signing all these (accompanying pictures of Fellaini, Villa and Suarez) and never playing them ?
Can you please, please, please get rid of Bendtner?
Is your best piece of business A) signing Fàbregas, B) signing Henry for £11m it C) convincing Conte to take Bendtner?
Wouldn’t it have been better to have a smaller stadium that fans could fill and a trophy or two?
You have to chuckle at some of the questions and I’m not surprised he didn’t answer the ones highlighted, why should he?
Saying that, I’d love to have heard him answer one by saying, ‘January, I promise’!
Talking of Bendtner, the coach of Denmark, Morten Olson has urged him to leave us in January:
Bendtner scored two great goals for us in the game against Italy, but there were also things he lacked in the match and this only comes through playing games,”It is for this reason that he should find something new this winter, and so, we know that well.
I think he will make the recommendation to himself and that is the main thing. Footballers want to play football. He has maybe 10 years left to go; he must use them well.
Amen to that!
As for Arsene’s coat, who gives a toot about that eh ?
That’s it for another day, only another ten days until we are back playing again……
