I wrote this blog back in 2013, its amazing how nothing has changed since. Ok, so we did eventually sign a few so called world class players and won two FA Cups. But the same issues are still here for everyone except Wenger to see. You could put Messi, Kompany & Pogba in that side and they would still be the same old Arsenal under Wenger.
One game into the season and Arsenal are in a serious crisis. After the embarrassing home defeat to an average Aston Villa side, the Gunners have somehow managed to pick up another 5 injuries to add to the ever-growing list. This, of course is a complete disaster with Wednesdays Champions League 1st leg in Turkey to look forward to. Fenerbahce are no mugs and this is hardly the place to be debuting kids.
27 players left the Emirates this summer with only 1 coming in. It’s been a complete shambles with the manager and the board becoming more deluded as each day passes. How can you go into a season with 1 recognized striker, 2 fit centre backs and 2 hapless keepers?
If I was on the Arsenal board I would be demanding player signings NOW. And I literally mean NOW. I’d be on the phone to all the clubs who have bullied us in recent years and wouldn’t get off and until a deal was made. But that’s not the Arsenal way. So what is? Because since David Dein left the club has seriously lost it’s mojo.
What this proves is the board have no interest in winning trophies. With money coming in from players sales they can once again pay themselves huge bonuses for running a very profitable brand. Throw in a successful Asian tour to boot, and their vision for the brand (off the pitch) is way ahead of schedule. Let me just remind you Stanley Kroenke, this is not the US and A, we have more than one trophy to play for. Our fans follow the club all over Europe (paying higher tickets prices than everyone else). This is not about popcorn, fizzy drinks and TV advertising. This is football, and football in England comes from the heart. You are ripping us to pieces with your incompetence.
