We hear time and time again that Arsene Wenger is “active” in the transfer market and we’re looking out for players but there are just no suitable ones out there.
So do Arsene even have a scouting network?
What are these guys getting paid for? There are thousands of players around the world, playing in different leagues and countries and you’re telling me that there are NO PLAYERS out there that could improve our squad?
It’s an absolute farce.
What is the point of Arsenal except to finish 4th, seriously?
We apparently have a hell of a lot of money available at our disposal yet we don’t spend it. And don’t get me wrong, I’m not expecting Arsenal to go out and spend £300 million on players – I’m not that stupid – but spend some of it and so some ambition!
We hear the same old excuses:
- Players are too expensive.
- The players just aren’t out there / available.
- We are in a different market to the rest of Europe.
- Caretaker Dave left the sprinklers on so we need to save money for our water bill.
I mean it is ridiculous. Arsenal fans pay the highest ticket prices in the league yet get a team which has no motivation to win the major trophies.
It’s pretty much like going to a Michelin Star restaurant and getting soggy chips and mushy peas dumped on your plate.
Arsene Wenger is a great man, no doubt. He brought the glory days back to Arsenal – but we are stuck in a vicious cycle which will never change.
Arsene only has to answer to the owners and as long as he makes them a profit every season (by getting 4th in the league) then they are over the moon.
There needs to be huge changes but this isn’t going to happen for a long long time.
Arsenal is just a business and the fans just don’t matter.
