Wenger irks fans with latest interview


Arsenal fans are used to the infamous quotes that Wenger gives every year in interviews and often we find them amusing, we especially like the way he can wind up other people with the things he says but when it is the fans on the receiving end of another one of his delusional speeches you have consider whether he has lost all consideration for the people that support the team?

Gooners are used to frustrating summers, we’ve spent the last 4 watching our best talent being sold from under our feet and replaced with players of a diminished ability in comparison but this summer was meant to be different. The last few months of the season were full of bragging by Wenger and Gazidis of the funds we had to spend and there was insistence that there would be additions to the team, so why are we sitting here approaching August with a few young ones banked in the future player fund, no new first team players and Wenger giving the same interview yesterday, you know-the one he gives every year saying that he is ‘no closer to signing anyone’ and ‘the team can compete for the title with or without new signings’.

We have been linked to many players throughout the summer and there have been so many signings and medicals that I’m sure Diaby has made great friends with Higuain and Jovetic during the summer whilst also renewing his friendship with Cesc. but the pursuit of Suarez is the strangest attempt I have ever seen from Wenger mainly because of his lack of man management skills, if he can’t handle the likes of Song, Arsharvin and Bendnter who are angels in comparison how does he ever expect to coach the player with the worst behaviour in the Premiership.

Bad behaviour aside Suarez is a great player and in terms of talent he is better than anything we have, there is no denying that but he is a huge risk and I just don’t see Liverpool selling to us when they know that could make all the difference to where both teams will finish in the Premiership next year. Suarez has indicated that he despises the English press and wants to move away from England altogether and all these factors point to him either staying at Anfield or going Real Madrid and I think Wenger knows this and used this situation to his advantage and attempted to appease some fans by making a bid that they won’t follow through.

Wenger is currently standing in a sweetshop full of the best quality sweets to buy and his theory is to go for the penny sweets and save the rest of the money for the piggy bank at home! I think there are many fans who are growing tired of his nonsense excuses and justification all the time. How can we believe this man when all he does is insist a team who scraped 4th last season will finish above all of those teams around us who are strengthening every week. He is either an extreme optimist bordering on delusion or he is desperately trying to not to expose himself as the tactically inept and weak manager he has become, either way his shortcomings will be laid bare for us all to see this season should we sign no-one.

I know Wenger’s fans will still describe him as the greatest manager in the world but that is simply not true. I can agree what he achieved at Arsenal a few years back was amazing but I’m starting to think that was the team and the people he had behind him because if he was the greatest manager in the world he’d be able to coach ANY team to victory and he has failed to do that.

We are 20 days away from starting the new Premiership season and 36 days away from the end of the transfer window and I foresee another year where we will have to fight another season out. I honestly can’t see Wenger keeping his job much longer without new squad members, I for one will be taking an ‘I’ll spend when you do stance if this happens’.

Thank you as always for reading and feel free to comment!

    Beyond frustrated. We could and should have had Higuain. But I don’t think this board and this manager will ever actually buy a decent player until we are literally IN the relegation zone. I’m disappointed, depressed and frustrated. I barely watched even half the matches last year and don’t really envision myself tuning in much this year either. This team has no heart, no “try”, and if Wenger seriously believes we can mount a title challenge with what we’ve got, he is delusional and needs to leave.

      It’s so hard to bear isn’t it, especially when we have seen so much great football over the years, not just under Wenger! I watched all games and attended a few but I don’t think I’ll pay to go this year!

    Yes it can get frustrating especially this season, when we have been extremely patient with him, and such comments can irk the fans. On top of all this, you see- he hasn’t given us a quality signing two weeks to go before the premier league. I do have faith in this man, but yes he has to be quick now…the new signing has to link up with our play, the pre season was to do that for us. Its too late, but better late than never….Oh what it is to be an Arsenal fan though….

    I don’t think he hides his lack of ability. I am sure he is a world class manager. But I think he’s too stubborn to listen his people and considers everybody.. the players, the fans, the press as dumbdumbs!
    Higuain, Suarez… all of it was smokescreen. A scheme to actually put worth his own strategy to not hire anybody else. I’d agree with you it’s not the good strategy but I actually think that is what he plans to do. Again and again. Over and over.
    His talent is to put a very mediocre side to 4th place each year, spending zero money. To every board in the world is a genius. To every fan in the world he’s a traitor!

    Nice article. This is extremely frustrating and no excuses for failing. Why was he jumping after we won on the last day at St. James ? We thought he will rebuild a winning team…but no he is sorting out his 7.5 mil contract. I don’t know why is the board so weak ? Why can’t we get a manager to wins us trophies. Throw this dellusioned idiot out….

      It is frustrating I totally agree! I hated the celebrations after the season ended, it was embarrassing to see them celebrate 4th place like that, I know people say it was because we got 4th over Spurs but it’s still not the point! He is the highest paid manager in the league but we get second rate performance!

    good article. and totally agree, this man is killing our club, i have followed arsenal for forty five years, and for the last two , have not been looking forward to the new season. same old same old.

      Thanks very much Roger! I have to agree with you too! It’s the same old Arsene and not in a good way! I have too been a long-term follower, my mum took me in a sling from 3 months old and 30 years later I still support them but I am tired of this situation! It has to stop somewhere!

    I don’t wanna drag it too much. Lets get Suarez and then we have the whole season in front of us to support or criticize. “The person may be a monster/racist, accepted; but the player is worth every penny that Liverpool will ask for him.” Spend it, get him and lets send across a statement to all the PL and European clubs.

    Thank You

    I seriously think we as Arsenal fans should ‘give’ Arsene this next year/season to make good on the years of promises. I expect a FEW signings before 31st Aug and I expect a top THREE finish. Come 11th May 2014 if we don’t have a top three finish or silverware, then I think it would be time to look elsewhere for a new manager.

    To be honet I even think that Wenger would be a gentlemen and leave prior to that…
