What happened to that famous saying “The Arsenal Way”?
Well if I’m completely honest the way we do business is nothing short of a shambles. Look at how long it takes us to tie up a deal to sign a player,Arsenal seem to be as affective in the transfer market as a 3 legged race horse.
How its works at Arsenal! THE ARSENAL WAY!
Arsenal – Hello, is your player for sale?
Zenit – He is our star player and we dont want to lose him, But if you did want to sign him you would have to pay us £20
Arsenal – Take £11m and a pack of cheese and onion Monster Munch.
Zenit – No thank you, Your offer was way to low. But we are willing to come down a little bit.
Arsenal – Ok how about £12m in payments over 75 years?
Zenit – Hmmm..£15m and you have a deal
Arsenal – Ok £15m is it. £10m now and then rest when we win the champions league.
Zenit – Nope £15m all in 1 go please.
Arsenal – Dont take the piss, Fck off. We dont want nothing more to do with you!!
Zenit – OK! OK! £15m payed over a lengthy period.
Arsenal – DEAL!
Zenit – OK deal, But now you have to agree personal terms with him, He was on £100,000 aweek with us!
Arsenal – Hello comrade, We are happy to tell you that we have after 3 weeks of trying ,agreed a fee with Zenit. But we have only got 5 days to get this done, so lets not beat around the bush! We offer you £60.000 and a 2 year contact.
Arshavin – THANK GOD! About time you agreed a price for me. I was starting to think you didn’t really want me. Ermmmh I would like £90.000 a week and a 4 year contract!!
Arsenal – 4 years!! Are you taking the piss son? Your almost 28! We give players a ways for nothing when they reach 30 ya no. Tell you what….Coz we need to get this deal sorted out before the end of the window, Will give ya £70.000 3 years deal and a bonus if you dont shoot from outside the box.
Arshavin – But Adebayor is on £80.000k and I’m much better then him, I want the same as Adebayor! I want to come to Arsenal. I was on £100.oook at Zenit and have come down on my wages to come to you. Give me the same as Ade and I will sign!
Arsenal – NO FUCK OFF! We don’t want ya, We can sign 30 kids with that money.
Arsenal at transfer deadline – We have 4 new players coming back from injury and they are our new signings. We are invincible.
Arsenal fans who have a small knowledge about football -cry!
Arsenal fans who don’t have a clue – In wenger we trust, The future is bright!
