When one refers to Arsenal, then one with any knowledge of British football history, is aware that one is making reference to an institution, that has come to represent the values on which the success of this country is based. Therefore, it makes perfect sense that this great club does not pander to the whims and fancies of a commercialised society, that craves and demands instant success.

Fly-by- Night operators, such as those in control of Manchester City and Chelsea, have merely identified these clubs as new toys to indulge their fancy. Their ownership is based on having buckets of money and not knowing what to do with it. When they encounter failure, then their ego dictates that they throw more money at the problem.

Arsenal, on the other hand, are too principled to get involved in a bidding war for a player because it is morally and ethically wrong to erode billions on overpaid footballers, whilst most of the world suffers abject poverty. Those who support the big spending policies, are perpetrators of an injustice that many of them would deny or plead total ignorance to.

Fabregas must leave for Barcelona as he desires, Nasri can fool people into believing that his desire is all about trophies because most modern footballers pay for PR and no foolish footballer is going to come out and openly admit that it is money and greed that is the true motivation. Arsenal will not break a wage structure because it is obscene to do so as footballers are already overpaid. If clubs like Arsenal fall into the trap of instant success, they will cease to exist because they do not have a benefactor who is prepared to solve the financial woes through money.

When a footballer like Nasri, who is by no means the finished article and who faded badly towards the end of the season, tries to hold Arsenal Football Club to ransom, then you know that the world is in sharp decline. Nevertheless, Arsenal will continue to play the beautiful game in the right spirit because those are the values of the greatest football manager that ever lived, Arsene Wenger. There are millions of talented footballers out there waiting for an opportunity.

The lessons of NBA and NHL should be learnt by those in the Premiership for the sake of sanity. The press are trying to encourage Arsenal to compete with the free spending clubs in England and Spain who are not run along the lines of successful businesses. If supporters of Arsenal call for the dismissal of Wenger because of his lack of transfer activity, they are enemies of Arsenal Football Club because you cannot spend what you don’t have and getting in an expensive player, adds to wage costs as well. These poor souls that want trophies so badly, should support a club that will deliver, but they need to remember that the club that they support could be without a soul.

No matter how many players go down the Nasri, Clichy and Fabregas route, it will not have an iota of impact because Arsenal Football Club will always prevail!

    Couldnt agree more. I think alot of current Arsenal fans only came on board during the Invincible era. Nice to see someone recognise that Arsenal have been at the Top of the English game for longer than any other club, dispite the fact that we haven’t won the league the most. Arsenal will not crumble, not in the way Liverpool has at least.
    Its fair to point out however that the way the boardroom has been run for decades has now changed, so too has the World markets, The Leagues, and the teams fighting for a position amung the Elite. The way Arsenal has been run must change, or at least adapt to the current climate. If we don’t, New ownership will unfortunately. The timing is right as the clubs at the top have formulated a way to be Successful without the efforts of clubs like ours. We need to adapt to ensure the powers that may be dont change the rules, and leave us behind, the way Liverpool has.

    In the end the fans and players were too weak last season to overcome the huge pressure against us form various quarters. Next season we must all be more vocal in support at the Emirates. It was great when the going was good but fell away when the going got tough.
    I believe a solid defense (sacrilige I know) is the foundation on which all good teams are built. The 4:4 at Newcastle, although with a massive amount of unfathomable Dowdiness, is the type of game that shows why we didn’t win the title.
    But Sczezny, Vermaalen, RVP, Arshavin, Walcott, Wilshere, Ramsey, Sagna etc. will make sure the team gets better as the season goes on this time round. Wenger has made the same mistakes with squad depth recently more than once but he does address issues. The new injury prevention scheme has meant that we were not at the top of the injury league all season last year and for most of the last 10. We know we are only a couple more defensive signings away from victory. Let us hope that the board can persuade (and perhaps Dein on that holiday) that Wenger needs to just splash a little of that cash. Not a lot. Just about one third of what he has gained from his frugality over the last 6 years.
    We hope and pray. Let us see.

    A well written article. Just to say that I feel that this great club ought to insist on a stricter dress code when representing A.F.C….smart blazer, club tie etc..

    Good article, but last season was a watershed for me. The Carling Cup loss, 4-4 at Newcastle and the two surrenders against spurs told me a lot about the players and manager. They just looked stupid.

    Lets hope there is a vast improvement next season because I never want to see those displays again.

    This is the best article ever and I believe that for one to succeed there must be trials, failures and real pain. We are developing the best football in the world. This may take time but soon just like Barca, we will dominant the EPL. See football rating last season, number of possession, number of missed goals hitting the iron bar, number of cheating from the ref including our second leg with Barca, 4-4 with Newcastle (red carded-11 against 10 men Asernal) and we still think AW is the problem forgetting also that he was never given enough money to spend. Yes! This is the truth. I read it in his biography. He is dedicated and will never speak against a club that pay his wage but yet he is the one the fans that are truly not in our spirit wants to crucify.

    If it takes money to win Real M and Man City or Chelsea would have all played the Champion final but they never did. The press, the clubs and other fans see the future. They see the threat we bring so we must be STOP now and they use our own fans to wreck us. They play the devil and we fall for it
