Wenger has let Arsenal fans down by DN
Arsene Wenger may feel that he is justified in his decision to not sign any new players for Arsenal this summer except for the Czech Republic international goalie Petr Cech. When you look at some of the ridiculous transfer fees spent by other clubs, especially in the Premier League, you can see his point.
But I for one am not having it. The Arsenal boss could have done more, I am absolutely sure of it. And when you consider that us long suffering Arsenal fans are forced to pay through the nose to watch and support the teams that Wenger sees fit to put out on the pitch, it feels like we are being made mugs of. So when, not if, it becomes clear that another season has gone by with no EPL trophy for Arsenal, the doodoo will hit the fan and the fans will have every right to call for the boss to step down or be sacked.
Okay so Real Madrid would not sell us Benzema, could we not have found that out early on in the summer (we probably did) and have signed a player like Benteke (who has previously talked about his boyhood dream to play for the Gunners) or Jackson Martinez, or Mario Mandzukic, or flippin’ anyone!?!
Wenger’s glib and smug responses about the availability of players has been really getting on my wick recently and that was when I still believed he would sign one or two players before deadline day. Not doing so while the fans are milked like cows on a dairy farm and the club is sitting on a gargantuan pile of cash is not just insensitive, it is downright insulting.
I felt bad for the boss at times last season when the fans were on his back but now I have to say he deserves everything he gets. I would throw my season ticket on the pitch at the next home game if only it wasn’t so bleeding expensive. Have we had about enough Gooners?
