What a shambles (and there is only one person to blame)

By 1970’s Gooner

I used the same title after the defeat by Liverpool. And of course the same arguments made then in this blog came to haunt us.

The most important is Wenger’s inability to buy during the summer window ESPECIALLY when he knew that both Cesc and Nasri will leave. A big mistake, a very big mistake.

Now we are out of the title race and even if we make signings in these last few days it is probably too late to win anything this year.

Who would want to come and join this Arsenal side? A side which has no ambition, is stuffed by very young players and gets stuffed for eight at Manchester United.

This is Wenger’s biggest mistake. Not strengthening in the key positions that everyone can see we need help.

Central defenders, midfielders (defensive and play making) as well as another striker.

He is actually taking us for a ride I think.

He never has the title as his major objective. It is fairly obvious by now. If he had he would have paid a few quid over the odds and taken those players we needed.

But no he has to buy cheap and young and develop his own players.

As I said before, this model may be economically viable but is not sustainable as far as us the fans are concerned.

Next year RVP will want off and after that Wilshere and a few others as they realize like Cesc did and Nasri that by staying they will be wasting their time and their careers.

I am sorry Mr Wenger but we want to win something and that is certainly not the Banker’s nor the new owner’s approval.

The Arsenal Board are happy to take our money for tickets and merchandise but are not willing to spend some money on players. Time we started boycotting games until they start spending some money on players. Lets boycott all games until they spend 70 million on new players.

Wenger is not in it to win it.He is so caught up in his vanity project that it only matters for him to prove the rest of the league a lesson and taking the moral highground.

So were boycotting games until January, saying that the window is closing on wednesday?

hey , wenger just said that he won't quit ! time for somebody to DRAG him & gazidis OUT !

The board is too be blame, Arsene is just trying his hardest with the players and money made available to him !!! Transfer money comes from the top anyways, the manager doesn't lose anything by spending more but the board does.

Wenger has had all summer to sign players and today I felt embarrassed for the players

Imbecile. Look back on this post in a few days with justifiable shame.

i agree with u. The board has shown us they mean business and wont do the right thing but share the money.we fans should tell them we mean business by boycotting matches until they change.they have to know thay we fans pay the season tickets.its time for a revolution .we fans must save our gunnerz or else we will loose the legacy called arsenal to a bunch of parasites calld d board who is sucking life out of this club. I say boycott.

bradster said...

What team were we expecting with the injuries and suspensions?
Just hope he realises we need a LB with the other targets.
Season is not decided by the last 2 games, let's have faith.

What a bellend u are! We had 9 players missing today including 7 starters n we played the best Man United team in years. Wenger is the best manager this club has ever seen, if we sack him then there is no-one to replace him n also we would have exactly the same set of players as we do now.

Time for fans like yourself to FUCK OFF cos some of us are sick of reading your shite. Your not a fan, all u post is doom n gloom. This club was nowhere before Wenger came in.

We must change the wage structure. Wenger wants this but has been rejected by the Board. We can not attract top players if we can not pay the salary they require. It does not matter if our transfer budget is £ 100 million, the salary structure will not allow us to pay their salaries.
This is a problem if we intend to compete at top level. And I certainly think that we should be able to find a balanced way forward. Of course we should not become a new Leeds but I think we ought to as London's pride be up there at the top of the league?

Yes it was a shambles - but there is a lot more than one person to blame. There is a lot more than one problem - why do so many of our players get injured? compared with other teams. Why haven't we recruited? Why are we so ill prepared for the start of the season?

Its just a complete mess. For sure it is not "all Arsene's fault".

Any surprise, 8-2 with wenger in charge? No way. Arsenal FC a top club still? Arsenal has been arsed fairly good by another arse, ARSEne.

If you want to save our beloved team click on this link and share it with your friends.

Fatgingergooner said...

Hahaha! Loving that link Mark, let's spend £70m on players that aren't really good enough! Let's buy Falcao for £35m when Hernandez cost Man U £6m. Let's pay £20m for Adebayor n £30m for Carroll! Price tags mean sod all these days. Vermaelen cost us £10m but would take him over Toure £18m n Lescott £20m any day of the week. U would think Arsenal fans would know this more than any!

Arsene wenger and whole arsenal board are greedy, thiefs, selsentered and disgrass to all arsenal fans. They dont have our(fans) joy in thier mind only how to make money. I am pitting players like RVP, wallcot ,song, vermalen should for a move to a stronger club who can challenge tittles. I used to be a die hard fan but now arsenal have let me down.

There are several things which need reviewing if football as we know it, is to be saved from financial extinction. From UEFA through to the board of directors, the players, the sponsors and the supporters. When will the football nations wake up to the fact we are slowly going down a route where only billionaires will own clubs like a kid owning a toy. We are heading to a European elite league which will attract the money! Only 18 teams say, will compete and all the others will eventually fall. Save Our Sport!

Wenger is not the one to blame, he has as others have stated, revolutionised football at Arsenal. The board in their infinite wisdom to maintain profits are undertaking the same stance as one Sir Alan Sugar who made a personal quest to stop paying obscene wages and transfers. Unfortunately, the other 23clubs in the league didn't follow suit and the spuds were left behind and are still counting the cost of that one man stance!

If as the board of Arsenal say Wenger can spend £40m on a single player, providing the weekly wage is less than £100k a week, then you guys so critical of Wenger should suggest such a player, otherwise turn your attention to the board!!!!!!!

Wenger must leave arsenal he has brought so much shame on the team by buying cheap players like jekinson nd so on we must buy experienced players like benzema,lescott,and luka modric or even players like andy carrol.wenger must GO!o much shame on the team by buying cheap players like jekinson nd so on we must buy experienced players like benzema,lescott,and luka modric or even players like andy carrol.wenger must GO!

Are you a twat or complete cretin. Do you think Benzema would come for less than 100k a week! And that is Wengers problem, the board alledgedly won't pay that sort of wages! Get behind Wenger, get behind the players and get behind our beloved team! It's the board who need reminding winning is what matters!

Fatgingergooner@
let smash some eggs on the face of a pathetic excuse of supporter you are..
united had rio,vidic,fabio,fletcher,carrick,park,giggs,valencia,berbatov,hernendez and rafael who didnt start thats almost whole another team thats good enough to beat thes lot with the same score line, and five of them are starters.
lets now count our starters missing jack,vermalen,gervinho,song and sagna thats 5 teamers missing.
if rvp gets injured(inevitable) or loses form we dont have goal scorer in the team.
if you want to make excuses like your lord wenger atleast come up with some decent ones. losers

Hair Grips said...

The price tag of hair flowers for girls tends to rise whenever color, beads or unique accents are added. Luckily, with a few craft supplies and some creativity, you can create your own Hair Fascinators for girls at home. From brightly colored spring clips to Hair Grips, these crafts make an exciting activity for pre-teens and teenagers. Create beaded Hair Pins. Spread hot glue in thin horizontal strips on the top of the hair slide using the tip of the hot glue gun. Fashion decorative ponytail holders. Make pearled hair Plastic Comb. Cut a length of faux pearl string equal to the top of the comb. Use the hot glue gun to glue the pearls onto lampwork glass beads. Wrap thin wire around the top of the comb in a vertical viennois jewelry to secure the pearls in place. A friendship bracelet is a token of love and affection exchanged between friends to celebrate and strengthen the ties of their friendship. jewelry making supplies beads
