We’ve made our worst start to a Premier League season in Arsene Wenger’s 16 year reign and were dumped out the Capital One Cup in humiliating fashion to League Two Bradford City on Tuesday, with some fans, myself included, questioning the managers position at the club.
Gazidis met with members of the Arsenal Supports Trust on Wednesday night and Goal claim he told them the club is angry at our recent poor form and insists they are working hard to try and deliver success. The American is also understood to have confirmed Wenger will be given funds to strengthen the squad when the transfer window re-opens.
“I’m tired of saying the same message so won’t do so, [but] last night wasn’t good enough and made many of us angry.
“The support was amazing and they deserved better, and it’s something we need to put right.
“We are desperate to deliver that success and only by talking to those of us here will you understand that. I don’t pretend we get everything right, but we really do try to.
“We built our revenues, we built our reserves, [but] we need to do better at how we spend that money. We are a club that’s under pressure.
“The squad needs something. We’ve got money to spend, but does that mean that he’s [potential targets] available. That’s something else.
“My communications with Stan are generally about team performance. Obviously he’s not happy with the way the team is performing.”
Gazidis is quoted as saying by Goal.com
Maybe you are tired of saying the same message, Ivan, but don’t you think we fans are also tired of hearing the same old rubbish from the club? ‘We’re working hard for success’, ‘we wont trophies as much as you do’, ‘we’ve got money to spend’…..we’ve heard it all before and nothing seems to change.
As the old saying goes, actions speak louder than words and people at Arsenal seem to talk a good game but unfortunately the actions don’t quite match up. The time has come for the men at the top to stop speaking and start doing, starting in January. The only way to deliver success is to spend the money you claim is available. Over to you Ivan and Arsene…..
