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

    You have a right to say what youve said, I dont disagree with a lot of what you said – lets see what this year brings though.

    Like you, I have been utterly frustrated at AW’s ‘self agenda’ to prove to the world that his ‘genius’ can build a world beating side on the cheap – here goes another year.

    The worst thing for me is that the league has now started and where are we in the transfer market – late as usual – and maybe nothing more will happen. Even AW cant be blind to the dreadful defensive frailty – I mean, five let in against Legia (thankfully we scored six) but it was frightening at the back – a true horror show. What Liverpool ‘could’ do to us would be scary – we desperately need strength in depth and as the most expensive club in the world to support we deserve more and a bit earlier please.

    Cheer up DK, it mightnt be so bad – we have some good players – a result today will set us up well.

    there’s still time to sign players, if by the end of the transfer window we’re still short i might agree with you. but till then i think you should pipe down, because you sound like a school boy bitch. come on you mighty gunners

    Fans don’t care about the financial situation but about titles? First, i’m happier to see a beautiful playin squad which always trys its best and maybe doesnt win all the time then a team of cunts like chelsea, who win titles but play lousy football! Look at inter milan. Would you been proud winning the cl like this. I felt asleep in every game they played and i’m sure i will with mourinos real again. Is the sense of football realy to win, no matter what the price is? For me the answer is definetly NO! Now to the finance: wenger is a genious! There will never be a manager who has that under controll so well again! Look at all the clubs, how much money they spend each year for transfers and wages. Such a strategie works fine for a short horizon but in the long run they need more and more investors and if they arent ready to pay your club is ruined! If man city wont win titles in the next three yers i’m sure the investors are pissed and leave. And then all its bitchy players will – like bitches always do – work for the next richer one! So thanx mister wenger for being competitive year for year with a budget smaler then many others!

    you know all you guys say this…but at the end of the season , you will be the ones blaming , criticising and abusing the club if we dont win the title…..atleast I am honest….to the guys who thinks i borrowed all this article, let me tell you all something…..i never borrowed anything from anywhere, i am not a copy-cat type of guy, i write what i think is true.
    The sad part is that you all know the samething but you all will tell this- when Arsenal lose to Chels, Manchester UTD OR city or Spuds….hyprocrits and liars, you all stick by the club when only it is in its good times, like right now, before the season. I am speaking facts….our manager has not bought a replacement keepr, nor a defender, last season we lost because of injuries, look at man utd , even they had injuries – one time they had their entire defense out, they managed….we don’t have any extra defenders….yes, if u count a guy like Silvestre a good-solid CB, then I’M SORRY…none of you guys no football…Im not a pessimist, i am just speaking the truth….guess its to hot to handle for you guys…
    my seasons prediction…is that Arsenal will come 1st, but I’m an arsenal supporter, i am tired of seeing my team come 3rd and 4th after a promising start ALWAYS…..see facts and then give ur screwed up criticisms…if we get a keepr like Given we get 10 more points ….we are right up there with the top 2(considering last season )….but we didnt….why did we screw up against birmingham?,…keepr.last-to-last yr…FA cup semifinal against Chelseas…flappy bday gift to us….lets face the truth,unless we get a solid keepr and i back-up defender,we only have to hope the other “5-7” title contenders slip – up for us to win the title…Be honest, and u will earn respect…there is nothing wrong to criticise something you fell is wrong…u all support Arsenal, and its your right to speak out if you feel smthing is wrong, why are you all so scared…”ARSENAL TILL I DIE,BUT THAT DOES NOT MEAN THAT IF THE CLUB CHARGES THE HIGHEST FOR EPL TICKETS, AND DOES NOT WIN TROPHIES I AM GOING TO SIT DOWN AND SAY…’NEXT SEASON’, AND MAKE EXCUSES FOR 6 DAMN YEARS”…when we play well i will encourage and support my team ,but if i see something is wrong, and i willt speak up…otherwise you wont ever get any Arsenal blogs in the world wide web…. lastly one of you said Arsenal was trying, yeah, sure…for 3 months they have been trying…they anyway take ages to sign a player,for eg.Arshavin took the entire winter transfer window,and 2 more days, sol took time so did Koscielny…biggest hypocrits on the planet…

      August 15, 2010 at 11:22 am

      Hypocrits! hahaha…..

      What a moron! Probably the same guy who said Vermaelen would be no good etc….

      Who would you get as manager who could do a better job????

    Fantastic Letter, i couldn’t agree more, me and a great deal of other genuine supporters (not Wenger lap dogs) are fed up with his stupid attitude and constant excuses.
    We all know what the team needs and we still cling to every transfer rumour in the hope that the player issues will be solved.

    Nice letter

    This is the worst thing I have ever read in my entire life.

    You clearly think ruining a football club is just like playing football manager.

    Please go and support a club like Tottenham.

  8. Tim

    August 15, 2010 at 10:51 am

    There’s 2 more weeks in the transfer window, so we could easily get a defender and a goalie. Yeah Man U are in debt along with half the other sides, but arsenal are all good. We have some great players. Nasri is the shiz, Fabregas, Asharvin, just to name a few. Lets see how the defenders go before we criticize too. As for other reasons I like Arsenal, they play wonderful football. Isn’t that one of the main reasons we support them? I’m from New Zealand, and can see Arsene is a smart man. I see a long future for Arsenal because we didn’t throw away money and have a very talented side. We came 3rd las time, and we have the same squad(almost) who have another year under the belt, and who know each others game more and if you ask me that means they gel better and perform better. Not to mention a great striker in Chamak. We didn’t lose last year, we got injured!
    Fit Arsenal team means Premiership to me. Go the Gunner woop woop

    I am getting sick of these bloggers who write as if they talk for all Arsenal fans…

    I go to every game home and away…..there is no where near as much pessimism because we can see how close we are. I agree we need a CB and that will be addressed.

    Your verbal attack is a disgrace, I am so sick of these arm-chair fans speaking as if they are talking for everyone….YOU ARE NOT. Your opinion does not match the majority of fans….or why else would the season tickets, memberships and away tickets sell so quick…

    We are not all as immature and impatient as you.
    Every top club has a barron run, this is ours and it coincides with a smooth transition to the best stadium in football and with us being secured for generations to come (how many clubs can say that) – AFC for ever…..the others are not so sure.

    I feel that Wengers action in the transfer market has been pure negligence he has taken this club backwards for the last five years he can not attract top players to the club and has a lack of tacticle knowledge.He has signed the contract only so he gets a decent payout when he is sacked at xmas when Arsenal have let in 50 goals

    You forgot all the home cup games we get in the CL so it’s not 47 quid, do your maths properly instead of stirring up fantasy shit, and Given isn’t the keeper you think he is, no good at crosses, a moaner and not even six feet,as for no trophies try the 60’s 70’s and 80’s when we won only a few, but maybe it’s because you have only been around for a little while I have endure all those eras with hardly no silverware and we played shit football a lot of the times

    I could not read through this article because it contains gutter language. I wish that supporters like you who do not respect a manager that have won more laurels more than any other in Arsenal should quit and go support Man City. Wenger is executing the policy of this club. If you o not agree with it, go and support another club rather than pouring out invectives on the best manager in the world.
    This article stinks!

    August 15, 2010 at 12:04 pm

    Mate, I think you must have been really angry when you wrote this so called ‘letter’.You should have waited till you cooled off a little. I think most Arsenal fans are disappointed with the way things have panned out in the transfer market. But saying things like “A nice hard sucker punch right on your face” to someone like Arsene Wenger is just not on. Honesty is good thing provided you share your honest opinions with discretion. By the way you’re right about a lot of things.

    My only wish is for the author to do one and let our club be. You are no fan of Arsenal with your short termism and total disregard for the circumstances under which AW has operated under. The very man who gave a cuntbucket like you the bragging rights with his equally stupid mates is the guy you are turning on now. Thats the behaviour of a snitch and a dickhead. We will be better off without you plastic muppet.

    August 15, 2010 at 12:13 pm

    F***’s sake I am so sick of other Arsenal fans. We easily have to have the whingiest bunch of negative doom merchants out of any fans in all of Europe. As if Arsene doesn’t know we need at least 1 CB you dumb F**K! He is trying to sign one and has been for the last month but it’s not like football manager where you can just sign any player you want. It’s alot more complicated than that and teams aren’t always willing to sell. Yes we have money for transfers but we don’t have endless money like money bags city for chelski, so we can’t afford to pay over the odds for a defender who is going to be shite. This has been one of the quietest transfer summers I can remember so it’s obvious signings are hard to come by this season.

    I hate Arsenal fans so freaken much, liverpool fans never whinge this much even though they have had a hell of a lot more success than us and haven’t won the league since 89.

    Silly little boy, how old are you? What da matter, are you getting teased by the other children because your club doesn’t have any shiny new players?

    Arsenal have finished no lower than 4th in every single season since Wenger arrived – we have been able to do this, without the injection of a sugar daddy and while developing more premier league calibre players than any other club in the league – and we’ve built a new stadium to boot.

    But boo f*cking hoo – we haven’t won a trophy for 5 years and to all the small minded children who see their football club as some kind of status symbol, that is all that matters.

    Grow up. Grow some b*lls and back your club.

    I think the writer is trying to instil some instability into the Arsenal fans by saying negative issues.

    Wenger had said that it is difficult to buy players and clubs do not want to sell either. If all you IDIOTS keep on saying all this on the blog that Arsenal needs to buy, those clubs may raise the price of the players tremendously. If the player is only worth 3 million then it is not wise to spend 10 miilion on him. World Class players also demand high salary of 120-150 pounds a week excluding all other benefits.

    Anyway, if Arsene has bought all the players you idiots wants and still did not win the title, you idiots will make even more noise.

    If you are not an Arsenal Supporters, please leave the blog alone anmd don’t create trouble.

    Anyone who is saying that the current squad is strong enough is dreaming. The team not only needs 2 more CBs but also a good defensive midfielder. The truth is Wenger has done absolutely nothing to strengthen the squad and coz of him being a miser, he would look for an excuse at season end.

    For the last 5 years, has Wenger ever failed to give an excuse???? the team is young crap has ben used for very long. lets wait to see what he comes up with. he has been given finances and yet he seems not decided what to do.

    Any good manager will tell you that once one of your star palyers shows any sign of moving to another club, start looking for a replacement. I would have expected wenger to have bought someone who would be a replacement for wenger. Get it guys, FAB is going soon. did wenger get Khedira, Ozil, etc NO NO NO . WENGER IS NOT A GOOD MANAGER
