Since Jamie Vardy turned down Arsenal, the fans have been waiting for Wenger to nail another top class striker as competition for Olivier Giroud, but it would seem that we are all becoming very impatient with just three weeks to go until the start of the season. This letter from a lifelong Arsenal fan sums up all ourfrustrations…..
From an Arsenal Supporter of 45 years…
Dear Mr Wenger
It is well known and acknowledged by yourself that we need a striker (world-class according to your standards) for the upcoming season. The financial constraints have been cut, we are profitable and now we shoot to achieve ambition. There is no logical reason why we can’t secure the personnel we need.
So, Mr Wenger, if we don’t secure this striker, then I will put my support for Arsenal on hold until you leave. From reading the financial statements of the AFC, we are too comfortable…you don’t achieve growth without stressing your balance sheet or P&L…we aren’t stressing them one bit! and with Central Banks looking to lower rates, the return from AFC is going to look a lot more attractive. Mr Wenger, your obligation is to the club and the football we play to win trophies and the club is nothing without the FANS! I can’t speak for them, but if they feel like I do…you’re destroying the club.
I was here before you and I will be here after you…Spend +GBP80m on a striker and get the job done.You can, and you should..if you don’t then your legacy will be known as the “Wasted Years with Wenger”.
