Arsenal in for Muller??? neil@activemusic
So we know that the media write all sorts of nonsense in order to sell newspapers and consequently generate advertising revenue but its more than likely fed to them by press departments within clubs. For example this morning we read Kylian Mbappe allegedly said he seriously considered a future at Arsenal…hahaha!!!
The other one, and this really made me smile, is that Arsenal are expressing an interest in Thomas Muller….you know that lad who is possibly one of the most prolific Champions league strikers of all time. I mean, come on, whether the newspaper decided to go out on a limb or our press office decided to feed it amounts to the same thing that rhymes with ‘butter chollox’.
However what it inadvertently highlights is how globally unattractive the prospect of playing for the Gunners has become. Only the most deluded fan would assume this story has traction. We have no chance of signing players of Muller’s callibre. No chance.
There are four teams top players might consider in the EPL and sadly we are no longer in that group which now means several things.
1. The board can make all kinds of offers to make them appear ambitious in the transfer market because they have zero chance of a player accepting a move to the emirates.
2. We have to bring younger players through because Wenger will wheel out his stock ‘we are only interested in signing quality’ excuse.
3. We will seriously struggle to make top four based purely on the fact we dont have the quality.
I know we all keep typing the same outcome of what we want to happen but there’s a point to doing so: the media and our press department are colluding to sell the lie that we are still ambitious. We are not and on that basis change has to be made now.
Please boycott games, don’t buy merchandise, join social media fan groups and spread your discontent.
