I am not trying to suggest that Arsene Wenger is not too fussed about whether his Arsenal side wins major trophy honours or not, as that would be ridiculous and of course the Frenchman wants to win things. I just have to question whether it is more important to him that Arsenal win in the right way and so prove him right in his refusal to jump on the bandwagon of trying to buy success.
We keep hearing that Arsenal have mega millions in the bank that the boss could splash on new and big name players but apart from the odd one or two like Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil he seems stubbornly reluctant to do so. Wenger himself has stated in the past that it is the right balance of players rather than star names that is more important to the Gunners, but does this mean that he believes it is the best way for Arsenal to win things or simply that it is the right way to go about things?
A number of players that many Arsenal fans and football experts think would have helped Arsenal to the Premier League title this season, with expensive stars like Zlatan Ibrahimovic among them, but it seems as though Wenger has not even tried to get them to sign for us rather than one of our EPL rivals.
Wenger has received plenty of praise for his tactics and easy on the eye brand of football in the past but has also been accused of lacking the pragmatism to do what it takes to win in the cut and thrust of the modern game. We know that he is a man of principle but is his refusal to pander to the over inflated pricing of transfers in the Premier League and his determination to prove that glory can be gained his way costing the Gunners?
