If Arsene has no money problems, then why no new striker? by KM
Hello, hello fellow Arsenal people! Do you have your checkbooks out like Arsene has his? After all, money is not the problem right? Especially if you earn 8 million a year achieving nothing much. Oh wait, was he talking transfers?
Check out this quote ‘The price of a player is down to four ingredients; one is the talent, two is his age, three is how much you expect him to improve your team, and four is his resale value’.
Which world class striker matches all 4 criteria for you? Truth is, if you put it like this you might say none. The realistic call is how much you want some criteria like quality, over others like money. Don’t tell me we can’t improve on Theo and Giroud. We can and it will cost less than half of what United will pay for Pogba.
City and United have stormed the transfer window. United do it without CL too, but Mourinho addressed the fact LvG brought average players without winning mentality and he is working on change. Pep identified City’s struggles and has brought practically a new midfield that is packed with quality and will suit his style.
We on the other hand are sleeping. We are being assured over Jack’s fitness, when so many years it hasn’t worked out. Theo and the Ox will be given another chance they shouldn’t get, but we’re so unprepared for the start of the season it’s sad.
Xhaka spoke about a friendly atmosphere at the club… How about one where winning is the prime focus. A top 4 finish and Arsene will get 3 more years. Think about that for a moment. Does this summer remind you of last year or the majority of the last 5?
It’s not money that is the real issue… It is the deluded man that refuses to spend them, because of belief in failed ideas and players. Will that change? Unless Arsene decides to leave by himself we are doomed.
I’m sorry, but our transfer market behaviour is simply unacceptable.
