Many gooners have a saying “In Arsene we trust” but do they?
Recently on the blog we had a poll on this subject ,Over 350 fans voted and 40% of Arsenal fans said they no longer trusted Wenger.You can see this poll here > Link
I can see why some fans have lost faith in le boss recently. Our all round game is not what it use to be.Losing to the likes of Fulham, Hull etc etc are not just a blip in the season. They seem to be a repeating problem that Wenger is finding difficult to cure.
We regards to his transfer activatie or lack of it in recent years. Wenger who was know for having the Midas touch when it came to finding unknown talent has made more then a few mistake. Allowing Flamini,Gilberto to both leave in the same season plus Diarra a £20m pound player to leave without really giving him a chance at the club? What i could not understand about the Diarra situation was why did he sign him in the first place and not give him a chance ahead of Flamini who’s contract was running out? Why play Flamini ahead of him? I could understand why Diarra moved on from Arsenal. He came to us cos he was frustrated at the lack of games he was getting at CSKA Fulham and wanted to prove himself…Out of the frying pan and at Arsenal he was back in the same boat, So really what was the point in him coming to us? And of course Arsenal jumped at the chance of making a profit on the player and cashed him in. At Pompey he proved what a class player he was and thats why he is now at Real Madrid
A huge mistake from Wenger.
But that’s not all.Wilson Palacios was given a trail at Arsenal and we could of signed him for less then £1m. Wenger felt he was a good player but with Alex Song and Denilson with had better players then Palacios already at the club. However, Being a nice bloke he called then Birmingham manager Steve Bruce and told him about the player and how he would be worth signing. Bruce took Wenger up on his advice and signed the player. And now he is a £15m player with Man Utd and Spurs leading the pack for him. So has wenger know lost his greatest gift? His eye for talent?
I’m also pretty frustrated with the, I don’t wish to call them lies but the inconsistency coming from Wenger and the board?
Are we skint or not? Do we have money to spend? do we have to sell players to bring new players in?
I would just like the man to be honest with us.
And for the record. I did trust wenger, But now…….I’m not so sure. Like Wenger said “Judge Me In May”but what about the other years since 2005?
