Why? Why? WHY?!!!
Does Wenger not like spending money? It’s all well when we don’t need players but at the moment we do and any thick soul can see we do.
We need a bit of quality injected in the squad and we have 70m lying around. It’s ok to do a bit of bargaining when we’re in dept and have a new stadium coming up on the horizon but the point of a transfer budget is to invest it. Transfer budget is money the club can afford to lose, because it’s making money in other areas so that money is left for Arsene to spend?
So why the f**k will the tight git not spend? The money will just be left there to rot. It’s alright when the squad spirit is fine but if we miss out on the title next season I think a top quality player will really improve morale in the dressing room. Will give the players a bit of a boost and be beneficial to the club.
I’m not saying we go out and do a Ferguson and do a Veron. No, that would be pointless spending and Arsene is actually quite a good judge of talent so I want to see him couple that with money to spend. And if he gives me that bullshit of there not being a player he thinks will suit Arsenal or that we don’t need anyone then I will high a top quality, professional hitman to be done with the tight git. It’s quite clear that neither statements are true.
We are dying for some depth and quality. Upfront, Ade is on and off and we need some quality on the left. I refuse to put my faith in Tomas and Diaby is shite. If we move Hleb to the left, I never want to see Theo on the wings again when he quite clearly better up front and once again, Eboue is shit.
So, when it’s clear to pretty much everyone that we are gasping for some real quality why does it fail to penetrate the skull of that thick man? Why? Does he gain some sort of satisfaction in seeing the club suffer whilst he checks if his gambles are paying off? Does he not care about the club? Does he have some aversion to spending money? Does he not enjoy spending money? I honestly think there’s some sort of mental block and Wenger go see a shrink.
It’s not about spending money aimlessly, it’s about spending money on the right people. If Wenger can’t do it, then I’m worried. United spend money on Carrick. They won the league. United spent money on Nani, Anderson, Hargreaves and Tevez and they’re going to win the league.
Jeffers and Reyes have been flops, so Wenger needs to put his magical scouting skills and shift his sights. I realize everything Arsene says needs to be taken with a pinch of salt but if he really thinks that our squad does not need strengthening in the summer then there is something wrong with his head.
I personally, will blame Arsene if we f**k up the title. Yes, you can say we can blame the players but can we really? They have worked their bollocks off all season and need the occasional breather to perform at their best. Problem is, we have no one of sufficient quality to replace them with. And that is Arsene’s fault. He let one of our most versatile players go and then did not strengthen.
Look at United and Chelsea. At RB they have cover in Ferreira, Essien and Brown. We have Hoyte and Eboue….
So once again, can someone just please explain to me why Arsene refuses to spend money? If they can give me a rational, logical explanation then I will gladly withdraw the majority of my criticisms.
Don’t get me wrong. I appreciate what Arsene has done for us and how good a manager he is but he has had a lot of luck and we have had to see the same mistakes being made again and again and it really frustrates me.
