Its 3rd again… Changes are needed! by Koss the Boss
We have managed to keep ourselves in a good position for the Champions league places again and this happens year after year but according to most, Wenger still knows best! He never wins the big ones anymore and nothing will change on the pitch front while he is in charge. He believes he is Arsenal, that he can do what he wants and he is proved right every season by still being in charge. But he has to at least see by now that he has done his best, but its time to go as he is failing at the same hurdle every year – and fans have had enough. Its no coincidence that its happened again.
I would love to see certain changes at the club, few of them include wholesale changes from top to bottom;
• Stan/Board OUT Usmanov/Board IN
°Usmanov will spend the money we have and invest his own if needed, as an Arsenal supporter, for success for the club he owns and cares for. As a fan you will see big differences with what happens on the field as new signings would be guaranteed along with success, as that is what he wants for Arsenal FC. Fans are being robbed out of pocket to watch a mediocre manager & his players getting to wear the badge of their once great club. They get paid great money but don’t look like they give a toss 90% of the time. He will change that mentality of mediocrity with ambition to win the big ones.
• Manager & Staff – £10m+ a year, Easily replaced for that money = NOTHING SPENT. Wenger, Bould and Ivan OUT – New Manager, No2 and David Dein brought in maybe for a season or four. We have Henry and a few others helping the youngsters, we need more of that in the background of the club.
°Koeman, Bergkamp IN
• Fees and wages; (Avg fee & wage) LEAVE!!
– Debuchy – £70,000 (£5-7m)
– Per – £75,000 (£5-7m)
– Szczesny – £45,000 (£8-12m)
– Rosicky – £65,000 (Free)
– Flame – £60,000 (Free)
– Arteta – £80,000 (Free)
– Sanogo – £40,000 (£1m)
– G12 – £90,000 (turns 30, maybe £8m)
– T14 – £140,000 (£16-20m)
– Gibbs – £60,000 (£5-7m)
(£50+m IN SALES & £675k+ Wages FREE)
Loanees back in squad;
Hayden, Martinez, Akpom
Ox, Gnabry, W Silva, Chambers & Jenko (6mnth)
Looks like we have got quite a few gems in there with that will come up to the 1st team throughout next season and there are a lot of young great looking talents in there. Have a look at Arsenal.com, watch their matches some of them are unreal already. Future is bright in that perspective anyway!
Our team would be;
GK: Cech, Martinez & Ospina(Jan?)
CB: Boss, Gab, Hayden
DM: Le Coq
B2B/DLP: Santi, Rambo, Wilsh & Elneny
No10: : Ozil, Iwobi
LW : Sanchez
CF: Welbz & Akpom
*IN – 4 big players – DM, CF, RW & CB
*IN – 2 cover/comp – RB & LB
Iwobi, Welbeck and Campbell can play different positions throughout the front line as cover for Sanchez, New CF & RW. They will learn from the best, all still young!
AVG FEES AND WAGES;
CF – £50-60m, £150,000 PW
CB – £20m, £70,000 PW
RW – £30m, £130,000 PW
RB – £15m, £60,000 PW
DM – £25-30m, £75,000 PW
LB – £25m, £60,000PW
°°AVG= £170-190m SPENT
£650,000 PW WAGES
We should have on average just over £200,000,000 in our account when the season ends, not all for transfers but take out £130,000,000, plus player sales & wages freed up it would leave our team in great shape and not a lot needed in the future with transfers. And as for the U21s, well they are taking shape for our future gooner stars from the Academy.
All in all wholesale changes from top to bottom, spend 60% or so of the budget with quality players, replace Wenger and Kroenke and we are right there. We can actually have a team worth being proud of and good enough to challenge the best. This won’t happen but I will allow myself to dream to what the Arsenal should be! Who would you bring in for each position from manager to loaning players out?
CF, RW, CB, DM, RB, LB,Manager/No2/Staff?
Il give you mine;
CF – Aubameyang or Lukaku
LW – Mahrez
CB – Varane or Hummels
DM – Carvalho or Xhaka
RB – Aurier
LB – Gaya
Usmanov, Koeman, Bergkamp & Dein IN.
Henry, Ljungberg, Gilberto all in background coaching.
