Ok, it’s about time I had this little rant. I am in a particularly bad mood for some unfathomable reason so this should be a tidy little rant.
Our general Patrick Vieira is gone. So stop bringing his sale back. It’s like you accidentally kill your dog go mentally insane due to the loss for two years, and just when your on top of your game, some c**t comes and shouts “YOUR DOG IS DEAD! YOU KILLED IT! YOU SUFFERED BECAUSE OF IT AND THERE IS NOTHING YOU CAN DO ABOUT IT!”
All the doom mongers out there, are constantly bringing the Vieira sale in a pathetic attempt to try and disgrace Arsene Wenger. Arsene does have his faults, but when he really, truly is at fault then he comes out and says it. In the Vieira case he admitted it.
In all honesty, letting Vieria go was not a mistake. Not replacing him was a mistake but it was also a blessing in disguise. Cesc would not be bagging in the goals this season were it not for the education he started receiving two years ago.
Admittedly, we suffered for it but are now reaping the rewards. So I see little point in people trying to bring back the sales of Pettit, Overmars and Vieira.
I will tell you something. Arsene Wenger knows more than all of you, simply because he has come into training every day for 10 years and knows his players in and out.
Would you really want Vieira, who is closing on 33, back with us now? Admittedly, he would bolster a fairly weak Central Midfield in terms of depth but he would not break into the squad. He has made two starts in the Serie A this season, what does that tell you?
People are trying to link our current bad form with the sale of Vieira all those years ago. I don’t understand the logic. As much as I love Paddy, he would do little to help us win the league. In fact, I almost forgot he had ever played for us. The man was a legend, but his time has come. Get over it people.
We made a massive profit on his sale, and his departure has allowed talent to develop. 13m for a 30 year old is good money. Admittedly, he had about another two seasons at the top but he hardly set the league alight with Juventus, did he?
When a player wants to move, he will move. The manager cannot stop him from moving. He would not have done much for us last season, anyway.
So please, stop using Vieira in your pathetic cases in pleading that Arsenal are a “selling club”. That Arsene Wenger is an incompetent manager for letting such a talent go. That since Vieira left, Arsenal have never been the same.
We suffered two bad seasons, get over it and look to the future….
