Wenger says he will not be forced to spend

After a string of bad results the Arsenal manager says he will not bow to pressure and spend on new players.

Ahead of what is a crucial, and probably season ending game for the Gunners should they lose at home to North London rivals Tottenham Hotspurs.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says he does not care if the fans call him crazy for not going out and buying new players for his injury demised squad.

Wenger has the fans outraged after what will be another trophy-less season, and despite having the funds from the sale of two of their best players in Samir Nasri, and Cesc Fabregas to Manchester City, and Barcelona respectively, Wenger refused to go out and buy a class defender during the January transfer window.

Arsenal seems stuck on the self-sustaining business plan of running the club like corporate America where the only thing that is important is the bottom line.

I as a fan just do not get it! This is not a business to us, it is part of our way of life, and some of us live and, breathe for the great club that is the Mighty Arsenal.

When the financial report comes out next week it is expected that the club will once again show an operating profit.

This will of course have Stan Kronke telling Mr Wenger what a great job you are doing managing our little soccer club, and also probably have him thinking how much of that money can I take to help with my purchase of the U.S. baseball team the Los Angeles Dodgers.

It is rife in the American press that Kronke has offered $1.5 Billion, for the West Coast team, which in Pounds is a staggering £945 million at today’s rate.

I am going to state my position here, and say Mr Wenger it appears to me that while no I do not think like some of the other fans that you have lost the Plot; I think you have just become a lackey to Stan Kronke.

If you as a manager think you can rest on your laurels you are sadly mistaken.

Any other manager worth his salt would have left the club if he had the financial resources that you have, and yet did not do what was necessary to have a team that can compete at the highest level with the other top clubs in Europe.

Mr Wenger I just cannot understand how you can scold the player’s one game, and then come back and make excuses for them the next!

Maybe I am wrong, and you really have lost the plot.

When you say things like you did today in the press it just frustrates me, as I think with you running the show it is never going to get better, and that Arsenal Football Club are going to become like a, and sorry to the Villa fans for this, but a once great club like Aston Villa being relegated to mid-table football with the thought of relegation on our minds rather than which trophies are we going to win this year, or going back to the good old days of competing for the League title.

Here is what our banker, I’m sorry I meant to say manager Arsene Wenger had to say about his critics: “What is unbelievable is that we run the model that should be absolutely normal and we look crazy. That is crazy.”

“People will do anything stupid, but we are not crazy, we are all right. We spend 1 if we make 1 and [then people say] ‘what are they doing?’ That is what is absolutely mad in our world, but the whole world is bankrupt because of that.”

Here is what else he had to say: “Last year we were very close to the top and there was a rupture in the building of our team with losing [captain Cesc] Fabregas [to Barcelona ], Nasri and [Jack] Wilshere [to injury].”

“We could compete with anybody in Europe with our midfield.”

Arsene then added: “When we play a young team you have to understand as well that we have chosen that policy.
“What is difficult to take once you get close is that the players move, and that is where we are in trouble.
“It is not the policy, it is not keeping our players once they arrive in a mature way.”

Here you are Mr Wenger I now understand what you are doing, and that is we are no longer a football club, but a school for young players.
Our business plan is to spot young talent,  teach them how to look nice passing the ball, and then when one of the so called crazy clubs come along and offer us silly money for our young players we sell them laughing all the way to the bank.

Who cares about winning trophy’s, and titles look how clever we are making all this money!

I know that today’s derby is very important for us in so many ways, and that after Chelsea’s win yesterday along with Newcastle anything less than a win means but for a miracle we will not be in the Champions League next season.

I like you all will be watching the match and cheering for the Gunners to win, and was planning to write a story after the match in what I hoped would be a description of how we taught the Yids a lesson.

After reading what Wenger said though I wanted to let you know my opinion.

  1. preaching to the converted here .i wanted wenger out since aug and i havent changed my stance on this .the guy lives in the 90s still .things change we have to change ,sadly he cant see it 

  2. I agree that we are required to ballance the books so the purse strings are tight but id prefer to have a smaller squad with quality players on higher wages than maximising the wage budget full of squad players! We need to weild the axe in the summer!

  3. Where is bigsy and DANTHECAPSLOCKMAN today ?

    SUCK ON THAT YOU SPUD TWATS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 2-0 up aswell

    • I think that puts paid to any hopes old ‘Arry had that his rag bag squad could challenge for the title.  A truly gutless second half performance.

      Guess what I’m having this evening….MASHED SPUDS!!!  Ha, ha, ha,ha.

      • I’ve been at the NEC all day, just got home so haven’t seen the game yet but was following the scores, great result but the site’s quiet…..not much for some to moan about I suppose!


    A brilliant come back by the Gunners today after being two
    nothing down. Van Persie showed his class, and after an earlier mistake by
    Walcott passing instead of shooting he made up for it with two goals. A 5-2 win
    was a well needed shot in the arm, but it still does not change the fundamental
    problems we have as a team.  It was a
    wide open game conducive to our style of play with no defending to speak of
    what so ever. We have some tough games ahead, and they will not be against
    teams that will defend as poorly as Tottenham did this afternoon. Let’s hope
    the confidence gained today will bring us the results we need.

  5. Great result today.Bigsy where are ya??

  6. Great result today. The defense was shocking in the first quarter. But they grew with stature in the second half. That’s the fight us supporters want to see. Too many games recently were very poor. To many players not giving their all. Today they did and fair play to Rociky, Walcot and Arterta for putting in a display. Can we keep this performance going now though for the Liverpool match and the Newcastle match. Wenger is always talking about consistency. This is the time now to have it.

  7. Good result. However, it does not change the fact that the time has come for Wenger to leave, and for the cowardly board to develope a pair of balls to sack him at the end of the season if he does not do the honourable thing. It is time to bring Pep Gualrdiola in, he likes Arsenal and he is the perfect replacement. I am surprised that none of our supports are talking about this. The latest news is that Inter Milan is ready to give Pep 20 million Euros. We should get there before them because I do not believe there is another manager in the same league as Pep, except Sir Alex and he is stuck in Manure.

  8. it was a fantastic come back by the gunners but that is not enough for the team, fans still need quality defenders in the team and not players like Squllaci and Johan Djourou as our central or right back defenders. i think its high time Wenger go into the transfer market and spend money on good players next summer or just leave Arsenal for us.
