Most Arsenal fans, even those that think it is time for a new manager, accept the fact that Arsene Wenger cares deeply about Arsenal football club. He always backs the board and doesn’t complain when they fail to provide the money he needs to improve. He stepped in recently at the AGM when some supporters were starting to heckle Kroenke, Gazidis and Hill-Wood, and got them out of trouble in the summer by somehow balancing the books.
How do they repay him, by making subtle suggestions that the lack of quality players coming in for the last few years is due to Wenger choosing not to spend money. Although Gazidis previously admitted that Wenger’s transfer acumen and ability to bring players on and improve others had made it possible for Arsenal to be competitive while they paid off the stadium, he is now hinting that Wenger has had money all along.
Wenger needs to lose his rag with these people, and tell them that they need to invest, now, before the season turns completely pear shaped. Plus, they need to get their hands in their pockets and reward the people who the fans think deserve it, the players. Gazidis gets a massive pay rise, while Sagna and Walcott are made to look greedy by asking for a little extra which would still not bring them in line with other Premier league clubs.
Stop covering for them Arsene, they wouldn’t do the same for you. It might be the only way that the board are shamed into supporting the club that supports them financially. Fans are starting to blame Wenger for selling the best players every year, which is crazy. He does like to bring players on and make them great, but not for someone else to then get the benefit. The closest he came to speaking out was when Fabregas left, he said it would be a disaster to then let Nasri go. We all know what happened next.
