I am assuming that the transfer policy of Arsene Wenger and Arsenal was deliberate this summer. I mean it is not as if the club is stony broke or anything, and even in those years when the boss was having to scratch around for cheap and relatively unheard of players to sign, the boss could always find someone.
So Wenger´s comments about not buying just any old Tom, Dick or Harry were not just his attempt to deflect the prying eyes of the football media or to throw any prospective transfer competitors off the scent. He really meant what he said.
Here is the stat mentioned in the title of this post Gooners; Arsenal are the one and only club in the top five football leagues of Europe; England, Spain, Germany, Italy and Portugal, to not sign a single outfield player during the summer transfer window. Amazing really when you consider that Arsene Wenger was apparently working 24 hours a day and had a team of experts looking for players to buy (cough, cough).
So while the rest of the football world looks on with their jaws agape, Wenger has set himself to achieve another remarkable feat. A bit like the invincibles season, he is clearly not happy to just win the Premier League title, he wants to do it in a way that makes it even more special.
As long as you do that, Arsene, then we will all become AKBs. Mess it up though and you only have yourself to blame for the sh*t storm that will inevitably descend.What are your thoughts Gooners; bold transfer policy and belief in his players, or blinkered idiocy and stubborn refusal to face facts?
