Ozil complains about Arsenal signings unlikely to be heard. by KM
Well, well! Pretty damn hello everybody. What’s that I’m hearing? Ozil came out to say we need some reinforcements! No way Mesut, I mean do you read Justarsenal? This is really interesting! Because it puts us in a familiar situation! You know who I am talking about.
Remember when we sold Fabregas and Nasri and brought in Gervinho? That resulted in an 8-2 humiliation which hit the panic buy button and we ended up with Andre Santos, Per, Arteta, and that Korean guy if you remember his one league cup goal!
Will we make the needed additions this year? No way in hell. Mesut also spoke about the influence Pep will have on City. Another major point I’ve been stressing out. Klopp will also be leaving his mark. If we do not prepare properly, we’re in for another year of hurt. Mesut doesn’t want to leave, but if the ambition fails for one more year he may as well make his next big move.
Why would you stay at Arsenal where players like Giroud, Ramsey, Walcott, Debuchy and Arteta among others sit on some pretty salaries with no real contribution to the squad? I mean we’d have, like, 300k wages if we free those players. Enough to pay Ibrahimovic the salary he desires, and the rumours are he prefers London, but we’re highly unlikely to even try to sign him.
Talks about Aubameyang are as dry as the Sahara desert. Wenger didn’t pay 60 mills for Suarez, who would’ve been sold to us for that sort of money and you think he’ll do it now? Mario Goetze might be available, Real could be making changes with Zidane finding out that being Real manager is not that much of a dream job with the immense requirements and, well, Barcelona.
Arsene and the board have a huge summer. We need to address some of the real deep problems. One of them being the bad transfer windows we have each year. We start with a lot of promises, make one signing that looks good and it’s just enough for renewing season tickets, so we stop there.
This year a CB, a new DM and a Striker is the VERY LEAST Arsene can afford. Anything other than that will be spitting in our face once again (and it’s far from being the first time)! The second major point is the manager. He’s a constant value at this club. The only real one on the sports side of things really.
This is a huge problem. The other constant factor is the ever ageing board that keeps him in charge. The problem runs deeper, because lack of change in these spots means the club continuously suffers from the lack of ability of those people to elevate us forward. Worst of all is that there is no desire to do so whatsoever.
At Barcelona a new board is elected after a certain a time period! No need to comment on their run of success in the past 10 years compared to ours. At Real Madrid heads fly left and right if the trophies don’t roll in. Whether this is the right approach is another matter, but truth is those clubs are not satisfied with being second best.
Each year, everybody at Arsenal knows that the same mistakes will be repeated, but we do nothing but hope that Arsene will learn, which doesn’t really happen, but people say “hey, wait till May and give him another chance”. After 12 years I think he’s run out of credits and the game over sign has to shine bright at the Arsenal arcade machine he’s been running for far too long.
Nobody of course cares if I say this, but if Mesut leaves, just remember how Fabregas won a title at Chelsea, Nasri did at City and Van Persie did at Man Utd. Would they have done that here? It turns out no matter how much Arsene twists and turns it, they were right. The club wasn’t going in the direction they felt necessary and we could be seeing it again.
Nothing would really surprise me though. I expect this to happen again and I expect Arsene to get a contract extension, but before it’s been done, please rethink how many more years of the same do the Arsenal fans want for themselves, before jumping to Arsene’s next chance. Give it a rest, it’s been 20 years already!
