Only Arsenal fans would accept the Wenger situation – well not this one!

Arsene Wenger is cynical and a very, very greedy individual who for some odd reason can do no wrong in some peoples eyes, but he’s nowhere near as smart as many think he is.

I won’t go into the fact that no-one knew who he was before he joined us, and all the tired old arguments about what he has done for us, are countered in my book by what we have done for him and his bulging pockets.

Also he did inherit Seaman, Dixon, Winterburn, Keown, Adams, Bould, Parlour, Platt, Merson, Bergkamp and Ian Wright, so it didn’t take much to turn us into world beaters did it?

The plans were on the table for the stadium move long before Wenger arrived, though he always claims credit for it. And the fact he dumped his mentor in exchange for total power speaks volumes about his loyalty. And yes I’m talking about David Dein, the main reason for much of Arsenal’s recent success.

His cynicism showed it’s ugly head the day he subbed the sub (Eboue) which deflected the boos that were coming his way. That in my opinion ended the Ivorian’s career.

Now that same cynicism is rearing it’s ugly head again with his current situation, he is breeding massive uncertainty amongst the players, with several not signing extensions and more not having extensions offered. What he is doing is covering himself in the event he gets fired by ensuring a number of players will be off and he can claim they went because of him.

What makes anyone think he won’t sign a new deal, he’ll get a 25% increase, he will trouser £10mil a year, that in my book is an obscene amount of money for a 67 year old that returns nothing.

Why don’t we always keep successful people in power? The main reason is because when they get too old, and with that comes predictability.

People often say the shareholders love Wenger because of the dividends they get paid. I have been a shareholder for longer than Wenger has been here, and have never, ever received a dividend. That is another myth peddled by AKB’s.

The main board love him because he ensures AFC makes enough to pay them huge hand-outs regardless of success. And that my friends is why we will never be rid of him and never have major success again until he goes.

It won’t be long before our sponsors get tired of throwing their money away and demand success, though even Wenger will be gone by then, but it will happen eventually.

Will Arsenal ever win the league in your lifetime? Ask yourself that!

And as for Barcelona, why would they want someone who has only won three FA Cups in 12 years and in 4 years time will be 70?

    So who the hell are you Geoff aka dikhead and even worse who let you post this drivel.

    So bar me, I’m all for opinion and free speech but this is way over the top admin!

    Wow. The quality of posts on this board has gone way down lately. First Konstantin, now Geoff. Even Le-Grove doesn’t seem so bad all of a sudden.

    if you guys cant handle the truth then you better leave.Wenger is what you truly classify as a specialist in failure.
    The amount of times he has broken the record of shame in europe and england is so much.
    Remember 8 2 6 0 6 1 6 3 5 1 All these stand out as the biggest defeats we have ever suffered at this club.
    It is not acceptable to lose two straight 5 1 defeats no matter who the opponent is.
    It shows inferiority of the highest order against an opponent you are supposed to compete with in the same competition.
    Its time to admit it.The man has lost the plot and must leave

      @Ramterta Well said….. and to answer the writer’s question,
      { Will Arsenal ever win the league in your lifetime? }
      My Answer is simply YES because i know Wenger will not spend as long as he has spent already anymore in Arsenal.

    I wouldn’t be bash wengers early Arsenal career. You can’t just say he didn’t inherit the whole squad so he deserves no credit. Post-invincibles though he did an okay job of keeping us competitive but it’s gotten to the point wenger clearly has nothing left to give and cannot produce another title for us. Tipping point for me was sale of RVP. It was no way his decision alone but we all know AW has an unparallel amount of power at the club. After this happened it’s really just been a cycle of mediocrity with no end in sight. Club needs a vastly new direction or we’ll just slowly decline with the guy. Thanks for the good times but we don’t even play good football anymore

    1. frank says:

      Yeah the RVP sale to Man U was the point where I thought, that’s it, he has lost it and has no desire to win anymore. He sold RVP to Fergie, hahaha WTF? He gave his so called arch enemy a Premier League title hahaha what an idiot.

    Surely, IF you are a shareholder you’d know that shareholders don’t qualify for dividends, only Directors do.

    Geoff, if all you’ve said in your article posting are true and nothing but the truth, then the success of Arsene Wenger as manager of Arsenal FC has appeared to be questionable at a stage in his management there and needing a bright light to see the reason behind the veil and unveiled it.

    But haven said this, I don’t think the man is as bad as you’ve painted him at Arsenal. t’s a well known fact that Arsenal were at a period in time went through financial restriction which stopped them from buying top quality players but sold some that they have due to the building of the Arsenal Stadium – the Emirates. Which he Wenger oversaw the implementation of it despite that he want not the brain behind the plan to have the Stadium in place. But he was certainly the agitator and the pusher that saw the project became implemented. Because in Wenger’s thinking, If Arsenal has a Stadium with the seating capacity closer to that of Man Utd’s Old Trafford Stadium, Arsenal will start to realise far much money than they were getting at Highbury which will subsequently enabled them to be buying some world class prayers on regular basis than it’s presently the case. Apart of Ozil and Sanchez, one could say Arsenal are still gribpling with the terms of to regularly be buying top class players as they have not been able to match or undo their 3 main title rivals of the 2 Manchester clubs and Chelsea when it comes to be buying world class players regularly in the transfer market to overhaul their teams which have seen Arsenal failed to win the PL and Ucl titles for more ten years or so even after they’ve repaid to a large extend the loans they took to build the Ems Stadium.

    And Wenger was able to build the invisible team of the 2003-2004 season that won the PL title that season. Among the players that he bought were: Ashley Cole, Sol Campbel, Kolo Toure, Lauren, Patrick Vieira, Robert Pires, Frederick Ljungberg , Edu, Gilberto Silva, Sylvan Wiltord, Thierry Henry Nwankwo Kanu and etc if I am not wrong.

    Let’s not forget the fact of the millionaires becoming the owners of Chelsea, Man City and the unrivalled marketing power of Manchester Utd who are able to spend big and pay big. A spending that has seen Arsenal become the weaker of the trio in squad strength. But yet, Arsene Wenger made sure that Arsenal still qualify for the Ucl consecutively for the past 20 seasons. A thought has made it believed that the money Arsenal make in the Ucl is what they’ve been using to service the Ems building loans they took from the bank. Otherwise, it would have been more difficult for Arsenal to financially cope if hadn’t been for the financial know-how of the economist Wenger.

    For his financial shrewdness, the Arsenal board want him to remain the Arsenal manager and I support them wholeheartedly. Because Arsenal cannot afford any financial recklessness at the expense of buying world class players. They don’t have the oil sponsored money to spend recklessly.

    However and finally, it doesn’t mean Arsenal cannot win titles this season. They can as they are still competing on 3 fronts to do so, and if the stars are set in our favour, Arsenal will win the treble to keep their againstors quite

    Nice one Geoff ?
    And I wonder what incentives Wenger was offered to stay on when Dein left? He was originally supposed to have left with him.
    Conspiracies all day long, I reckon that he was offered more than we could ever imagine.
