Mourinho’s latest swipe at Arsenal…. by KM
We all know Jose Mourinho is a drama queen, a media feeder. He creates stories for the press and never fails to create a spark, or take a swipe at Arsenal. He was asked about his relationship with Arsene Wenger and what he thinks of Arsenal and what the Chelsea boss said again had a background dig at Wenger.
He said Wenger has “a dream job” because of the stability he gets. He also said that we have a fantastic squad full of attacking quality and in good numbers. Asked as to why we don’t win enough he said “I don’t know”. He said we should be up there with City and Chelsea.
Now I know a lot of people don’t like Mourinho for his mind games, but can you really disagree with his statement. We have fantastic forward options. We have a squad better than the one Liverpool and United do. Our squad is not much worse than the City or Chelsea have, but we truly don’t do enough with it.
When Mourinho was asked who’s to blame for this he said “I don’t know”, but the truth is we all got the message that Wenger was to blame. If you ignore the fact Mourinho is saying it, where would you put the blame for the fact that Arsenal is missing the chance to be that european powerhouse?
We have one of the biggest and finest stadiums in this land. Our fans pay the highest ticket prices, which generates huge amount of money. We have one of the highest wage bills in this land. Every way you look at it, we should be up there.
Just look at the other teams – United are an expensive shadow of themselves with a manager that has transformed them into a team playing long balls. Van Gaal is clueless as to what is his best formation and squad, which is really costing them, yet since that defeat at the Emirates this is the first time we surpass them in the league.
Liverpool were Suarez. Or at least 70% of them was him. He left, they spent a huge amount of money again and it took them the whole first part of the season to get running. Their squad is not nearly as good as ours, yet we are only 3 points in front of them.
I just don’t want to comment on the fact how much better our squad is than the one Spuds have, yet we manage not to beat them in 2 games. Overall we should have standards. Ours is the top 4. Anything more is a bonus, but this lack of ambition is like a disease. The manager doesn’t pressure the board to give him what he needs for a title challenge ( honestly what more does Wenger need ? ).
On the other hand the board doesn’t care too much and doesn’t want to put any sort of pressure on the boss regardless if he has a plan or not. I guess the truth is always somewhere in the middle but this time ! must agree with the Chelsea manager. We should’ve been up there with them, not scrapping a top 4 battle.
