Being from Toronto, Arsenal seems to be run like the leafs They don't care about wining cause no matter what, they will still sell out games and fans will ***** but still support them
I hear you on the ticket prices, especially compared to the other top sides, Arsenal should show some ethics and owe it to the supporters for better prices especially compared to the other top clubs having better prices for their fans and the fact that we havent won the league i so long but kroenke gonna kroenke.
As far as wenger being stubborn to adabt with the time, i just dont think thats true anymore after the puma deal a year or so ago. It is to be believed that the puma deal helped arsenal with the stadium and lifted limitations on spending which we saw with the ozil and sanchez purchases. I definitely feel wenger is not satisfied with mediocrity shown in the transfers this last two years but hes just a very selective man and believes strongly in cohesion and how a player will fit with personalities and style of play that he wants for his team. If reports are to be believed, he really wanted benzema who would of been a great asset and i feel would of lifted our squad to another competitive level and we offered a good fee for him, but why would madrid sell if they feel they cant find a viable replacement in turn not giving them any good reason to sell regardless of the fee offered, they are ******* filthy rich, money aint **** to them. in that case what can arsenal do, they offer up the cash but if the other side dosnt want to sell then there is nothing arsene can do regardless of how much he wants him.
We all know there are very few quality options at strikers in the market worthy of spending a big fee in todays market but thats just one side. Another worthy striker i feel was cavani but PSG can see him as a current and future asset for the team with zlatan on his way out soon (eventually? lol) so it would be quite silly of them to sell when one striker will be gone and cavani is still someone worth keeping for his quality especially in a position with so much scarcity. The only other striker outside of the two above i felt that was worth going out and getting was higuain but this was a special circumstance, napoli asking for a 80 mil pounds buyout, lmao get out of here for a player closer to the end of his prime than the beginning, yes i believe he would of been a player that would of helped in our sqaud but the fee is just unreasonable especially when more talented and younger are going for the same fees, just dosnt make sense business and football wise, i highly doubt higuain could return on a 80 mil pound value let alone rocket us as sure prem title contenders and CL challengers. I feel the last isnt about not spending cash, or else higuain would of been somewhere else, im sure many other clubs considering just couldnt justify it. Yea wenger only made one transaction this summer in cech, who i feel was a great signing and the value will be returned but i truly believe it has nothing to do with him not wanting to spend, the viable options are just not there. I do and dont get why certain supporters feel he has "too much faith" in his young players but in a sport like this with so much turnover, i feel you have to give potential stars a chance or you will never breed them, i feel having a culture of a farm system and looking to breed quality footballers within is the best structure for a club and i feel much more efficient long term then just desperately spending butt loads of money to reload your squad. I was too hoping for a defensive midfielder buy but francis is showing and proving his worth in the squad with fantastic consistency since he came back, i feel he has much improved since last season and only getting better being the solid dm that we've been looking for, thanks to good faith. anyways, sorry for the long *** rant, im in class and my professor is quite dull.Edited by JOSH4523 - 9/17/15 at 3:53pm
