Wenger raises expectations for a star signing

 By 1970' s Gooner

It used to be that Arsenal did not buy the stars but made them. Do you remember? Arsene Wenger used to brag about it. But only a few days ago he made an exremely surprising statement. He said that we are now in position to buy the stars!

Not only has he changed his strategy he has raised expectations by making bids for 25m (Higuain) and 35 m (Suarez) for two players that are cosidered as stars! And as if this was not enough he announced that Arsenal want to buy Rooney and can afford his wages!

Forgetting the Rooney bid as a tactical non starter (he made it to make a point to prospective incoming players that Arsenal are in the market for the big boys) he is now running the danger that he may end up with nothing.

Real have agreed terms to sell Higuain to Napoli for 37m and then they may probably use the money to buy Suarez from Liverpool!

Arsenal and Arsene will be left with mud on their face.

And we will be sweating our squeaky bums for another tight finish for 4th spot again.

that is what I was thinking right after Perez pulled the Greedite lever with Ancellotti being brought into the frame. It's really disheartening to watch Blood $$ take over our entire passion for leisure & sport. Especially the Beautiful game. What does it profit to gain the entire trophy cabinet yet lose our souls. Every other sport in North America has as Wenger implemented Socialist Salary Caps & Profit sharing. Only the Bundesliga seems to do the same. Arsenal have done it right. Played by the rules, imposed stringent Austerity & made sure to use what they have & can afford. It's the Greedites, Corporations & those in the hallowed gates of Zurich, Dubai, Abu Dhabi & London as well as we the fans who allow this Leprosy to continue

If Wenger doesn't buy and the gunners can't compete,he shd leave asap. Fans come to see a winning team not one passing all day long.
