Arsenal do not even want to win the Premiership.by Peter H
Hi all you Gunners. I am writing this before the Chelsea game and am hoping we can pull it off to get our season started, so good luck to the team.
Win or lose today, we are deluding ourselves if we think that Wenger and the board even want to win the league.To me it is clear that Wenger is still employed by the board because he is brilliant at calculating what he needs to do to keep the team in one of the top four positions that he holds so dear.
After those embarrassing thrashings last year the manager of most teams in the league would have collected their P45 and gone into happy retirement on their final exorbitant pay-out. So why is Wenger still there? Why does a top team like Arsenal put up with being humiliated in so many crucial games?
Surely, because the club is making a healthy profit for all those directors and overpaid employees who many years ago would have done the same job for no money, just because they loved the club as the fans do.
Have we spent wisely and ambitiously now that we seem to be on such a good financial footing? We all know the answer is a resounding ‘NO!’. We love all the Arsenal players who try so hard for their manager, but we all watch in amazement as Wenger buys yet another fragile crock or untried youngster, and groan as we sit and watch the truly ambitious teams who refuse to accept second best and go straight out and buy the best players money can buy to fill the positions they are lacking in. Football is a great game, and weaker teams can sometimes shock the big boys, but if you keep buying at Poundland do not expect to be ruling the world. So, 4th again, if we stay fit.
Sorry you Gunners to be negative on a sunny day. Do you think Wenger and the board will ever man up and spend what they have to to get to the very top?
