I guess that most of you out there in football-land have heard the Arsenal transfer rumour going around about the Arsenal board issuing our manager Arsene Wenger with a spend or go ultimatum for the summer transfer window. Basically, it goes, they are fed up with the prof just like the fans and will no longerr accept him sitting on a massive cash pile while there are players like Ibrahimovic, Higuain, Poga and Kroos out there that would definitely improve our chances of winning the title.
Do you really believe this report in The Sun? I can just see the conversation between Stan Kroenke, the man who recently said something along the lines of someone who is desperate for trophy success not being the right person to run a football club, and the bean counter and PR man that is Ivan Gazidis.
S.K.- Ivan you old slaphead, how’s it going?
I.G.- Wow you can speak then?
S.K.- Anyway I am getting sick of making all this money by charging the Arsenal fans through the nose and putting all the cash in the bank while using that wrinkly old Frenchman as a buffer for their occasional explosions of anger.
I.G.- Really? You feeling okay boss?
S.K.- I want to give the Gooners something back and I reckon that we should tell Wenger he has got to spend all the cash reserves on some top quality stars no matter what they cost.
I.G.- NURSE! Get in here quick, something is very badly wrong with him.
Nurse – Calm down mate he is on some serious medication and doesn’t know what he’s talking about.
I.G.- Has he spoken to anyone else?
Nurse – Just some reporter from The Sun.
I.G. Oops! Oh well we will just let that lie and then when we only spend a grand on some 13-year old Ecuadorian ‘sensation’ we can blame Arsene again and the season tickets will all be sold by then. Pass me one of those pills would you.
This scenario is about as realistic as that report in the paper don’t you think?
