The summer signs are worrying as Arsenal’s targets keep snubbing us. by KM
Hello everybody! How’s your summer going? Better than Arsenals I hope? The Euros are over and the real preseason starts, but so far what we’ve done is added Xhaka, lost Thierry and we’ve been snubbed by two of our targets.
Let’s start with Thierry and Arsene’s absurd decision to remove one of our most iconic figures from the club, because he was also part of Sky. I’m sorry if that ain’t a dictatorship I don’t know what is really. Why did we have to kick him out? Did he not attend trainings, or he was drunk or something? Thierry has a presence of a time Arsenal were kings of the premier league. Such presence is long gone nowadays. Paddy is at City, Bergkamp is not at the club, now Thierry is gone and even Arteta decided to join City.
Huge question marks over Arsene once again, but that’s nothing too surprising. Another alarming problem is the fact we are continuously being snubbed by our targets. We should be able to persuade Vardy to come to us and despite the fact he’s not really the striker we need, we shouldn’t really have problems getting somebody if we really want him, especially if he plays for Leicester, despite the fact they are champions of England.
The Draxler story is another indicator. Would you believe that Bayern Munich would have trouble getting him, if they wanted him? They are a big name and they completely dominate the Bundesliga. We cannot attract players in the same fashion because A – we don’t compete for the prizes and B – our transfer negotiation skills are plain terrible.
Real Madrid and Barcelona use the media, their players, their global fanbase, everything they have. If they want a player they get him. Man United can do it without champions league football. Ibrahimovic and Mikhitaryan were both improvements on our current situation. Why didn’t we approach them?
We don’t have a plan. I’ve said it a thousand times and as much as I hate myself every time I do it, it’s the truth. We are waiting for things to fall on our heads instead of forcing the moves. There is still time, but I’ve seen this movie before and I know how it ends.
Still though, every time I hope for an unexpected twist, but it just doesn’t work like that. You have to force your luck, not wait for it.
