Arsenal Con Job by DS
Two years ago Arsenal spent the summer flighting with the idea of purchasing Higuain. Such were the club’s dawdling that Napoli stole a march on us and signed the Argentine. Most Gooners forgave the indecisiveness though as we had convinced the world that an offer over 40 million would acquire the services of Luis Suarez. Once that was laughed out of the Anfield boardroom fans grew angry toward the Board as it became clear, despite a transfer window lasting 3 months, there was no plan B. Defeat to Aston Villa at home left Arsene Wenger for the first time in his career pressured to make a marquee signing. He acted accordingly by breaking our spending record on Ozil, but we never did that season buy the world class striker we had been promised. Twelve months on we finally brought another centre forward…… Danny Welbeck.
Fast forward to the present day and it’s a serious case of deja vu. The board’s quote that we were now in a financial situation to buy ‘any player apart from Messi and Ronaldo’ was timely, a time where the club was trying to sell season tickets and shirts, this quote coming days after Cech’s arrival led all Gooners into a false sense of security.
Writing this a week before September no new faces have followed the keeper into the club, while money has been clawed back with the sale of Podolski and the loans of Szczesny and Sanogo. The best our manager can promise us is if a world class option were to become available he would be interested. In other words unless by September we have brought Karim Benzema, anger will surround the Emirates Stadium.
Could it be a ploy by the club to let us think we are in for such a player, knowing deep down it is near impossible – yet they can turn around and tell us at least they tried?
Well, with respect Mr Wenger, enquiring about a player does not prove your ambition, any club can ring Real Madrid, only an actual offer shows you are serious. Why not give the Spaniards a straight 50 million yes or no offer? If the answer is no, move on to your next target .
But it’s easier to let fans believe there is a chance of doing a deal, so you then don’t have to answer why we are the only Premiership side not to sign an outfield player.
What makes our Board think Real want to sell? Over the years it has become clear the Spanish Big Two only sell if they want to, unless they sign another Galactico what reason have they to lose the Frenchmen?
There has been hope stemming from Gareth Bale spending pre-season playing in his preferred central role, while we know Ronaldo will not compromise his role. Let’s say that’s true, let say Benzema walks into Rafa Benitez’s office and says that with the Euros being in his home country next summer he demands to be played weekly. What makes Arsenal think they would be his Number One destination?
Aren’t the Manchester clubs and Chelsea looking for a striker?
Aren’t they more likely to win trophies this year?
What do Arsenal know that we don’t? The answer is they do not….
They are merely using their fake interest as a way to justify not spending money. Then when we ask how they can do this while charging us the most expensive tickets in Britain they will say they are only in the market for a truly world class player, saying that trying to buy Benzema proves their ambition.
Do not fall for this Arsenal fans…
