Peter Hill Wood and Danny Fizman have both recently come out and said that money is available for the manager if he wishes to spend it?
On the other hand the manager has said that we need to sell in order to balance the book?
So who is telling the truth?
I feel Fizman and the board are just trying to distance themselves from wengers lack of spending policy,They’re covering their asses for when we end up trophyless once again, they can pin it on Wenger and be like “well we told him we’d give him the money if he needed it”.
Wenger has not come out and said that the board are wrong and that there is no money to spend.
If Fizman was telling porky pies then Wenger should have made a statement.If I was the manager and the board said something like that which is not true i would even think about leaving the club as a matter of principle.
Wenger has not done nothing so it must be true.
Money is available for the manger, But he didnt feel the need to spend it.
Was he right? If this season turns out as a success then this will be Wenger greatest achievement. But if it turns out to be yet anought trophyless season Wenger will have to take all the blame for it.
But then What is success for Arsenal?
It seems like the Arsenal manager and board are now just happy with Champions league qualification and a 3rd or 4th place finish.
Wenger has got us into this “Top 4” clubs without any major spending and now he believes that we are invincible and we will keep doing it every year.
I used to think that the season we beat Tottenham to 4th on the final day of the season was a great day for Arsenal Football club,turns out I may have been wrong.If we had missed out that season it would have been a major wake up call to everybody at the club from Wenger down to our Tea lady.He would have surely then realised that we are not the “Invincibles” we once were and we needed to bring in more quality players into the club.
TBH we lost one of our best players last season (Flamini) because of a couple of thousand quid in wages,he has not been remotely replaced for the upcoming campaign.
its simply a sad situation….
But lets all look on the bright side , Amaury Bischoff has said he will be back in 5-6 weeks
