Arsenal

A Letter to Arsene Wenger…

arsene-wenger

Written by guest blog armourysquare

Dear Mr. Wenger,

If chance ever provides me and you meeting together there is something I would wish to give you so badly, that my heart craves for. A nice hard sucker punch right on your face. You are manager of Arsenal Football Club and have been one of the most successful managers for this club. But personally, I really don’t think you give a damn for “our” club. Why? Well simply because you are the biggest liar on the planet and I applaud the way you can blatantly lie on T.V. This is what you said on 18th April, 2010.Go check it, its on Arsenal.com.

“I think we can overcome [Chelsea],” he said. “For a while we were not investing maybe because we had built the stadium but I think our financial situation is now becoming much stronger and we will be capable to buy the players we need to buy.”

“No we cannot [compete] on wages with Chelsea. That is simple. I believe what is not normal is not our wage bill but their wage bill because that should not be allowed.

“However they cannot all go to Chelsea, it is as simple as that. There are top players outside of the ones Chelsea want to buy who are good enough for us.”

The Barclays Premier League season has ended for about 3 months now. You promised you would “strengthen” the squad this summer. Lets take a look of what you have done:

1. You release 3 defenders – Sol Campbell, William Galls and Mikael Silvestre .

2. You get 1 – Laurient Koscielny.

3. We currently have 3 defenders, ( I am talking only about CB’s) – Thomas Vermaelen, Johann Djourou and Laurient Koscielny.

4. In general we require 5 defenders, but because you are such a miser, lets say we require 4.

So, according to maths, originally we have 6 ( including our latest summer signing ), but now we have : 6 – 3 = 3.

Let me spell this out for you ” T-H-R-E-E “, thus we require 1 more CB. But no, you will not buy because we don’t have finanaces, our stadium is too small to accomodate 1 more defender…”oh the horror.”

Also, I have noticed that the newspapers link everybody to our club. This is a request to them, the only way we will believe you is that if this french-man tells us that ” we are interested and lets see what happens”. So, please don’t report to us a host of players linked as it always gets our hopes up and when we end up not signing anyone we all get pissed-off.

Then there is the goal-keeper, our beloved shot-stopper. Yes, I know you love him and want to give the “dynamic-duo” chances, but give them chances in another club you manage. Yes, go to another club, pay Arsenal and sign these two guys and have all the fun you want. We are sick and tired of watching their “play” over and over on “Youtubes funniest football videos.”

You go on saying these 2 words “I believe”, but let me ask you something, what do you believe in? That our team, sorry let me correct myself…our defense is good enough to tackle attacks of upgraded Manchester City, Man Utd, Chelsea, Liverpool, Spuds…you are probably dreaming…

You probably think that one day “when” you win a trophy for Arsenal, you will come and tell all the Arsenal fans and media, “look I was right and you all were wrong..”. But trust me that day will only come when the sun stops shining and the earth starts shining! The reason for our club not doing so well is simple – its your ego, you think you are always right. Guess what? You’re not. 47 pounds for 1 match ticket, so logically an Arsenal fan will spend (only for home-games) 19×47=893 pounds each season to watch “beautiful football”…wonderful.

Reports have recently emerged that Shay Given is ready to leave Manchester City….and yet I have not seen any transfer movement on our keeper issue. Are you telling me that you are willing to spend 2 ml pounds on Mark Schwarzer but can’t spend 4 ml more and get a better quality keeper in Shay Given? Lets have a look at what you said when you were asked about transfers..( your mortal enemy ! )

Speaking in his first pre-game press conference of the season, the Arsenal coach stressed that his only focus at the moment was selecting a goalkeeper from within his current squad for the opening game against Liverpool.

“No,” was the Frenchman’s simple response when it was put to him that bids could be placed for Given and Hart.

“No.No,” he continued when asked a second and third time, before stressing, “I just told you that transfers are my secondary worry; my only focus is to get the team ready to start on Sunday. We do not need to buy to play well on Sunday. We have quite a strong squad.

Look man, we all are scared about Liverpool. They have a good team, they have made good transfers. All you have done is that you have brought in another striker and a defender. You have not addressed the areas in which we were weak, then when we won’t win anything, you will probably say “next season we will contest, blah blah…”, and we will find an excuse to give ourselves as to why we did not win anything for the 6th year in a row. Success is equivalent to titles, not about building your team and showing “beautiful football” to the world. A top team is one which can do both- FC Barcelona, Manchester United etc but somehow I don’t see our names in that list…

Before I end my letter let me tell you something. I love my club, and I do not want to see it get beaten down so badly even though it is financially completely stable. My request to you is that, if you have any doubts that you will not be able to give us a trophy this year, please give in your resignation to the board. There is still time and a new manager can be appointed. We as Arsenal fans can never doubt what a man like you has done for the club so far as the debts are concerned. But at the end of the day, as fans, we want trophies, not balanced books. So please check yourself before you start managing this season, not only in your hands do you manage a top-class club but also in your hands rests the happiness of a million Gooners around the globe…

Regards,

DKD

    Pathetic. Call yoiurself a supporter? Wenger’s signing is the most impotant one this summer.

    Excellent article! He is running our club into the ground and I am getting sick of all these ‘In Wenger we trust people’.

    Lie after lie, this man WAS a genius. Im sorry to say his time is up at Arsenal. Any supporter who thinks we can challenge with the defence and goalkeepers we have are deluded!!

    Lets see at 6pm tonight when we are talking about defensive frailalties that have cost us a opening day victory!

      Gary I liked your argument in fact it was not until we talked about Ade that he let him go we are sick and tired of those training performers who when it comes to a real match are played. I think Wenger should start watching his game rematches may be he will realize this like his favorite selfish Diaby should never play unless he learns that it is a team game not a personal game and still we need to win game flare comes when you are leading the game by 2 goals we need to see Nasir, Ashavin and company try long range shots if we need the trophy look at Barca Iniesta will try his luck when it come instead of squaring the ball in a concrete defense

    A badly written piece – rubbish! Yes, you may spend your money for match tickets and thus deserve your views but to say you’ll ‘punch him in the face’. Wenger is one of the top three managers in Europe. Turned Arsenal into a top club with quality football. What would you rather – Arsenal qualify for CL or finish 10th and win FA Cup? I’d take CL every day of the week. We have a good up-and-coming team and hooray for Wenger!!!

    Some valid points made.

    The lies and propaganda have been going on for far too long! There’s money to spend but our egomaniac manager wants to show the world he can win something with cheap players!
    Another season standing int the rain at THOF watching the mancs and chavs wipe the floor with us beckons!!

    WTF havent we got a goalie and at least another CB yet?!!! And we then offer him a new contract?! Staggering!

    What a plank you are… That’s right, obviously Arsene doesn’t care about the club… but apparently not as much as you.

    It is pretty obvious that Arsenal are looking for CBs- its not that they are not looking- its that clubs want silly money for untried players- like 24 m for the Bolton centreback. Twenty four million plus a huge salary- Even Chelsea wont pay that kind of money for David Luiz-and they can afford to. Other players like Hangeland don’t want to come and the Germans are too well paid. Man City have distorted the transfer market. These aren’t excuses- they are reasons. Try understanding more and blaming less.

    Thank God someone finally let loose the volcanic frustration that millios of gunner worldwide are feeling. Wenger is deluding himself if he still regard himself as arsenal manager. He’s nothing but a public representative of board members. Why can’t he take up the post of accountant general of the club and let the club appoint a manager that is willing and craving for trophies?. There are lots of manager who will give their one arm to manager arsenal and be more successful than wenger whom I personally believe is gone stale and in comfort zone. Any wonder he’s scared to take up job at either Barcelona and Real mardrid?????

    Very captivating and well structured write-up. I believe for most parts most Arsenal fans are unshakable in their support for our beloved Arsenal and most want at least 2 more signings as we all deep down believe that our current team isnt equipped enough to go all the way this season.
    However i wish to stress that even though i have many misgivings about MR Wenger’s stubbornness, i still believe that he is the best Manager for Arsenal under our current circumstances. If only we could persuade him to be a little more caring of the fans, he would be more than a god in our hearts.
    Will He?
    Only time will tell

    Sounds like the rantings of a spud.
    “A nice hard sucker punch right on your face”

    What an arrogant prick you are to be writing such bollocks if you don’t like arsenal don’t support them. Go and support chelsea instead, you won’t struggle to get a ticket at the home of the champions

      T-R-O-P-H-I-E-S….THATS WHAT FANS CARE ABOUT, OUR MANAGER WHATEVER YOU SAY IS MORE KEEN ON BALANCING THE BOOKS THAN WINNING TROPHIES…

    Just who’s the drama queen? Get some perspective. “A nice hard sucker punch” – this says it all about you. That is a disgraceful thing to write. You should be ashamed. Support the club. It’s the start of the season.

    You vile little cretin.

    Who in the hell gives an idiot like you the stage to write??
    Perhaps more pertinent is WHY anyone gives an idiot like you the stage to write?

    Liar, punch a 60 year old man in the face.., a man who has scarificed the past 10 years of his marriage and large chunks of the upbringing of his daughter to drag MY football club to the top table of world football..

    Do me a favour, grow up, put the lid down on your laptop and pack your satchel for when you start the new term at school.

    Fuck of you prick, go write your mindless bullshit on your bedroom wall

    Quality article, and it’s good to hear more people out there who don’t just spout the Arsenal corporate line.

    Wenger’s finished – he’s taken Arsenal as far as he can. The game’s moved on, and left him behind.

    Get out Wenger!!!

    Not sure which is the most ridiculous, your puerile views or this website for allowing it to be published . You speak as if you know that nothing is being done behind the scenes to strengthen our team, just because stories are in the sun or daily mirror please don’t take them as gospel, you offer no solutions to our problems other than punching our clubs figurehead in the face, brilliant. Please go and ‘support’ another club, thanks
