Just who the hell is running the Public Relations campaign at Arsenal??

On the day Ivan Gazidis told the Arsenal fans we have “sufficient funds to invest” in new players this summer {Link}

Our manager (Wenger)  then tells us “I wont be spending big” & I plans to keep faith with squad {link}

Wenger also said that Arsenal finishing 3rd was better than expected??? You cant make it up can you?

So what did you expected at the start of the season Arsene?..And if it was worst then 3rd why didnt you do something about it?

I take it that Gazidis and Wenger and not Singing from the same hymn sheet then?

So Wenger has loads of money to spend but he wont??? So whats new?……….Its going to be a long summer.

Join the forum and debate this and more..

  1. St.StupidWenger says:

    What a stupid wenger idioit he is!! Nobody ask you to spend foolishly or spend all the money, just buy some top players to improve and compete – spell “WIN” – titles and championships…instead of keeping your stupid faith in almunia, flapbianski, slyvestre, denilson, diaby, etc…

    • Daxxjoker says:

      Come on,mate ! Wenger is a genius !
      Clubs will be buying Dzeko,Aguero and other top class strikers.Also,smart people will be buying Manuel Neuer and Akinfeev,and other amazing keepers.
      Wenger the Great will bring in Chamakh on a cheap.Rob Green and Kevin Doyle – and we will be shooting for the 6th place !
      And now,tell me – doesn’t that look like a masterplan for the next season !
      OFC that French SOB won’t spend big !
      He will stick with Fumbleianski and Silvestre !

  2. Wenger didn’t say he expected us to finish fourth. He said it was expected of us to finish fourth.

    • BigL says:

      so we did worse than expected .

      wenger stood up at the annual shareholders meeting last year and said . “We Will Win A Trophy This Year”

      • Becks says:

        So he did’nt forsee the INJURIES, get a life, If you can forsee the future let me know, so I can pce bets now. Dick.

      • DM says:

        Becks – I can forsee the future – we will get injuries!

        The following players will get injured at some point next season:

        So maybe, just maybe, Wenger should plan for this for once as this has happened for the past 4 seasons!!

  3. Steven says:

    You expect a man who praises the likes of Diaby, Fabiaski, Almunia, Denilson, Walcott to spend ‘big’? Where will he send his ‘babies’ to? How will he live without them? Not going to happen…
    You expect a man who calls qualification 4 d CL every season 4 13 years a ‘trophies’ to drive his players for better performance? Stop joking here! Won’t happen as he apparrently

  4. GunnerSince!WasAGlintInTheMilkman'sEye says:

    Wah wah wah I want that one, otherwise i am goin to scweam and scweam until i am sick…

    What a sad irritating little fuck wit retard you are.

  5. Steven says:

    You expect a man who praises the likes of Diaby, Fabiaski, Almunia, Denilson, Walcott to spend ‘big’? Where will he send his ‘babies’ to? How will he live without them? Not going to happen…
    You expect a man who calls qualification 4 d CL every season 4 13 years a ‘trophies’ to drive his players for better performance? Stop joking here! Won’t happen as he apparently seems to have sworn to sink or swim with them…we’ll be back here at the end of next season saying same things we’ve always in the last five years and Wenger and his group of ‘average untouchables’ will still be here arriving 3rd or 4th on the league table, qualifying for CL, throwing the CC and FA cups and generally as usual, winning nothing…don’t say I told you so…!

    • Becks says:

      Oh Ye of little faith, we have again qualified for CL.! we came third only due to INJURIES to KEY PLAYERS. Take Rooney out of Man U for the best part of the season, then take out Nani for a few weeks followed by covering defenders do you think they would have finished 2nd. No I did not think so. Take out Drogba for Chelski for the most part of the season and remove Lampard for a few weeks, put in place a few covering defenders. do you think chelski would have won the PL. No I did not think so. have faith in AW he is the manager trust in him. he was not responsible for the MASSIVE Injuries we suffered this season. My message to the PL teams, be prepared for SHOCK & AWE.

      • Loki says:

        Get Psychiatric help mate seriously cos your about delusional as they come

      • WengerIsWrong says:

        HAHAHAAHA that’s not gonna happens.
        Stop joking around.
        Wenger is noot good.
        Accept that mate.

      • DM says:

        what you fail to notice is the general build of these players that DIDNT get injured. They’re stockier, with larger muscle mass which means less fatigue on their joints and so less muscular and joint injuries. These players naturally wont be as injury prone as our smaller, slighter players. ie. Rooney + Drogba are more suited to the premier league than RVP.

      • SPECTRUM says:

        Becks – no, Wenger wasn’t responsible for the injuries we had this season”. But IT IS his responsibility to have a PLAN in place to COVER for those injuries.That means having quality players in reserve, in case that happens.
        We didn’t have those players to step in- because he didn’t bring enough (or any ? ) in ! Not even LOAN players ! Then he proclaims at the end of the season, “We were ‘unlucky’ with all the injuries we had.” That’s not bad luck – that’s incompetence.

  6. Trevor says:

    I demand we Get Rafa in now. He has a proven track record of spending millions and millions. And he’s probably available. We don’t need the stability that AW brings whilst paying for a new stadium. We don’t need CL football. We just need to spend spend spend and all will be rosey.

    We won 5 titles in only 60 years before Wenger. His record is unacceptable. I pay more for my ticket than Chelsea fans so I demand to finish above them every year.

    Enough is enough.

    Rafa. Rafa. Rafa.

    • braincheeeeese says:

      Nice lol.

    • silent stan says:

      we have won the title 13 times in all, so where did you work out that wenger has won 8 of them??

      • Trevor says:

        Dude, we won some titles more than 60 years before Wenger. I was using a common statistical technique of picking a number that suited my argument that probably has a clever name that I don’t know.

    • BigL says:

      You always get one dont you. Say anything bad against Wenger and the AKBs come out saying lets get, Rafa, Brown, Allardyce etc. Just how stupid to these people make themselves look?

      It would be funny if in some alternative dimension where AKBs rule they got their wish of having Rafa as manger. I’d love to become part of the Rafa Knows Best Brigade just to piss them off.

      • Trevor says:

        Either you didn’t understand me or I don’t understand you, or more likely, both.

  7. aa says:

    Arsenal obviously wont win anything for the next century. So can all these glory hunting plastic fans go support Manu or Manc or the champion Chelsea? With their tendency to spent big, surely you’ll be very happy there. A match made in heaven instead of sulking and whining on a manager you obviously dislike.

    • BigL says:

      yeah your right, we’ll never win anything if wenger leaves us, or is that if he stays? its been so long since we lifted a trophy I forget which

  8. Gregor says:

    GunnerSince I have to agree that this site seems to be a collection of whiney little bitches who gotta ‘throw their toys out’ if they don’t get what they want. Now I know why I’ve never visited this site before, and I never will again.

  9. Anders says:

    It would be pretty smart of Wenger to say he will spend big????????? think before u write.

    and maybe u should stop reading just the headlines

  10. marc says:

    If? This is Wengers attitude he needs to bugger off!
    If? The money is there, which I believe it is then we need to spend it. Everyman and his dog can see what Wenger can’t. I’m truely fed up of Wengers single mindedness!

  11. brgkamp13 says:

    Wenger also said of Chamhak: “He could be the first one, yes,” Which would suggest more to come. You’ve obviously chosen quotes to suit your agenda. And maybe he’ll sign some more players, maybe he wont but why do you only post when we lose or when you have an axe to grind? My suggestion to you and your fellow whinner-bloggers ( who seem to love writing in CAPS and using lots of !!!!) is to stay off News Now Arsenal, for a few weeks, enjoy the World Cup and get a bit of perspective on the game.

  12. The Law says:

    Yes, Wenger is stupid, stubborn, myopic, blind, etc, and Arsenal will never win anything with him as manager.

    Now that we have established your arguments, can you kindly fuck off and leave the club to those of us who don’t share your views?

    • silent stan says:

      why are people not allowed to have different views and be concerned at lack of trophioes, or worse a manager completely at odds with the fact that the VAST MAJORITY of arsenal fans think we need someone better than almunia nd fabianski. DO YOU THINK THEY ARE GOOD ENOUGH

      • BigL says:

        I wouldn’t worry about it, clearly he is a fan of Wenger FC and not the club. A typical plastic fan.

      • sam banks says:

        i wouldnt call this guy a plastic fan but he has a point, those who are concerned about the club should start at looking where the club is heading… if you look at chelsea yes there winning titles but there team is now aging… arsenal will get a right balance about them soon enough i dont think injuries should be an excuse as it seems to be the same players injured and wenger should see it forthcoming but his genuis will pay off and he does wat most could never do.

      • Trevor says:

        The difference between you and us is not that we think our goalkeepers are awesome. It’s that we support them anyway because they play for The Arsenal.

      • Ziggy says:

        you calling us plastic fans? go support Chelsea, they spend big and change managers all the time, you’ll be much happier there. And by the way – read this – Arsene Wenger is a GENIUS! You’re blind if you can’t see it.

  13. nbgooner says:

    I dont think we need to spend big but there are a few key positions where we need to stegnthen and one of them without dobt is in goal. Almunia is not good enough period, as long as he does that and gets decent defensive cover we should be ok, but I think he knows this judging by his comments about shipping goals.

  14. Merse-10 says:

    It’s so boring now.

    We decided to build a new stadium – that meant we didn’t have the funds to compete in the market. It’s really simple to understand.
    It’s not case of us having loads of money but Arsene choosing to try to do it without. To keep is up there whilst building and paying for the stadium is nothing short of remarkable.

    Money is now slowly becoming available through the sale of the flats at Highbury. If we can find a player or two that are good enough, in our price range and available then we’ll do it.

    Fed up of whinging fans who are too thick to understand what Arsene and he club have been trying to achieve.

    We have stable foundations and that’s the only way o build. We do not have artificial money and the board and the manager are not prepared to bankrupt the club and that’s something i fot one am thankfiul for.

    5 years without a trophy is not a long time. The way some fans are you’d think it’s 5 years of relegation fights and mi-table finishes. Check the history books – it’s all there to be seen. 5 years is nothing.

    Proud to be a gooner, last season, his season and next season, trophy or no trophy. Arsenal is not about the glory – it’s in the blood.

    • RichE says:

      well said!

    • Tony Lionnet says:

      Damn right.

    • Ziggy says:


    • SPECTRUM says:

      Merse – “Five years is nothing ?” If you’re not one of the top 4 clubs in the Premier league, that would be true.But WE ARE.We set ourselves high standards.We have a proud tradition we want to retain. Five years of nothing with Wenger’s “I believe in this team” mantra is simply not acceptable.
      We have money (30-40 mill.) available NOW , but in the “Wenger won’t spend big” link , he says “major additions are not necessary for his young squad”.By “major” I take it he means experienced players with a higher price tag.Yet a week or two ago he told us that he WILL sign experienced ones! This is another example of Wengers duplicity ( or just plain lies?).
      You all say “we didn’t have the funds available to buy”. Well now that we have,from this comment – he STILL won’t spend big.He obviously intends to stick with “his young squad” ,to keep faith in a policy that has, and will continue, to produce underachievement. We deserve better than that.

  15. t says:

    Lol. what a site, tottenham are celebrating cos they have made 4th place like it was the title, they have spent reams of money, the problem for them is if they don’t get past the qualifiers, and finish below 4th. those thirteen yrs of qualifying
    has put us in an excellent positions ….some of the players havent developed into superstars, if wenger gives us three/four new signings. I will be happy, stop the complaining lads

  16. Trevor says:

    Merse-10. Well said.

    The real Merse is a c**t though.

  17. adam says:

    “ere we go again!

  18. TonyM says:

    he said yesterday you cant win the league conceding 40 goals. so i think its pretty safe he’s looking at strengthening the defence and hopefully the goalie.
    gazidis said we have sufficient funds but we’re going to spend it wisely.
    i think a new 10m experienced CB and a new 5-10M Gk is probably what we’re looking at. maybe add to that a 3-4M young unknown CB.
    I would love to see us go out and spend 40M on david villa but its just not wengers philosophy

  19. TonyDon says:

    Well said Merse-10.

    At last someone who talks sense. The people on here are the same people that booed eboue and jeered Fabianski during a game that we needed to win. Clever boys! Just shows the sheer lack of intelligence of some people. I don’t people realise the enormity of the achievement of building a stadium successfullyin LONDON. Just look at the problems at Wembley. To keep the team in the top four let alone challenging for the title this year is remarkable. Remember we sold one of our main strikers and defenders in the summer and with a bit more luck on the injury front the same people on here would be proclaiming Wenger as a genius.
    Us as supporters ahould should do just that support the team. Wenger will strengthen the squad. His last two major signings have had significant impacts on the team. If Chammakh and any other additions do a similiar thing then we will have a better chance than this year. Remember we were affraid that we wouldnt finish in the top four this time last year.

    We are THE ARSENAL

  20. perrygrovesworld says:

    boy oh boy why do I bother. Another knee jerk off from this esteemed site.

    better than expected BY THE PRESS, dummy, or do you have the memory of a cockerel ?

    Gazidis said ‘sufficient funds’ …. Where do you think the money for salaries comes from? tooth fairies? the money from Highbury Square projected for transfers was a year or two late due to the bankers fuckup. I suppose that was Wengers fault too.

    Mind you are probably too young to understand politics or watch the news, but hey like all spin doctors you are old enough to know how to spin a lie……

    • BigL says:

      sorry you lost me with your ramble about bankers and tooth fairies? didn’t the club pay off an extra £80 million or so off the loan?

      If the club can pay that much off the loan then funds must have been available just not used.

      • Trevor says:

        Paying off £80 million of debt now instead of naturally over the term of the loan, however many years it is, saves millions and millions in interest payments.

        Being frugal now for the future whilst keeping us in the Champion’s League. A job well done I say.

        Liverpool FC. £340 million in debt paying 40 million A YEAR in interest payments before they can even think about signing a player. Out of the Champion’s League. At risk of losing their best players because of that. And all you can do is moan that we haven’t spent enough money.

        Seriously, do you even remember what it was like before AW was our manager or did you just hop on the bandwagon when we started winning?

  21. marco says:

    gosh,at times like these i regret being an arsenal supporter!

  22. Lady Arsenal says:

    If you all feel so strongly about it where is the protest? Where are the thousands of you outside the Emirates demanding you be heard?

    Why is it only anonymous commentators on the internet who seem to be so forthright? Believe me, every blog is full of outrage/hatred for wenger so why don’t you DO something instead of sitting on your arse?

    Face it. There will be NO news on Arsenal this summer. If you’re just going to moan and moan, and not stand up for your beliefs, just fuck off and leave me alone.

    • Smudger says:

      It’s because all the people complaining aren’t actually from England, and have never actually seen an Arsenal game. At least, that’s my assumption based on their grasp of the English language.

      The fact is that Wenger’s most recent signings are Nasri – £12m, Arshavin – £15m and Vermaelen – £10m, and yet we still get idiots claiming Wenger never spends money.

      The amusing thing is if Chamakh had cost £25m, the same idiots would be saying it’s a brilliant statement of intent and a wonderful bit of business.

      • Gunner says:

        So true.

        People just hear what the pundits tell them.
        Fact is, the pundits don’t even know.

        Gazidis has money alright, but £30-40 mil aint gonna get the players you want and thats if we spend ALL of that ESTIMATED funds which we don’t know will go to transfers.

        Despite having less money than his peers how can you not admire wenger’s bargains to get players worth far more than he paid just to desperatly keep up with billionaires.
        He’s trying very hard in that respect and it was easier for him a decade ago.
        FACE IT

    • SPECTRUM says:

      Lady Arsenal,
      “Where are the protests ” ? Well, I would suggest that there are a (growing) number of disgruntled supporters out there ALREADY,and if we are sitting here this time next year, with another empty season behind us, you might be joining them, and make up a placard to wave, also.But if not, then perhaps ANOTHER five years might convince you ? By that time Wenger’s “young team” will have maybe produced the goods ?
      ” Stand up for your beliefs?”. Wenger has been doing that for a LONG time now- we’re still waiting to see the results !

  23. Sewen geezy says:

    If this stories are true, then wenger’s days in arsenal should be numbered.

  24. perrygrovesworld says:

    hahahahahahahahahahaha Lady Arsenal you have my utmost respect. Sadly this site’s bloggers would never do this and if they tried to they would look like a sad bunch of miserable youths ripping up their Junior Gunners cards, if they had them of course….

  25. Gunner says:

    Just because Alan hansen and co tell you 5 years without a trophy in this league is not good enough for arsenal doesn’t mean its true.

    USE UR’ ‘ED

    You can’t compete with their money. You want a manager that buys the playerz you want go join chelski or man u. We have spent less than 19 clubs in the premier league league from 04-09 yet we are 3rd.

    Arsenal won when money didn’t get involved and you didn’t need silly money to get the best.

    Now every scout knows every player and there are people willing to pay silly money and arsenal , the moral club, can’t compete.

    If you want an immoral club go take your glory hunting traits to chelsea or madrid.


  26. AGN7 says:

    One question i’ll loved to ask all the contributers is this:
    Have you actually every been to a game?
    If not you have you a right to to say what you want despite not contributinng a penny to the club but please don’t just quote what’s said in the sun,talksport etc!
    The Arsenal are the pride of London,no doubt but we have not performed for 5 years! Our stadium is our trophy but now we have to move on! If we do not buy what any normal fan would consider as super quality players,not wenger’s meaning,he has to get his P45,simples!

  27. t.boyle says:

    the diferance is if man u had lost rooney for the same amount of time as van persi fergie would have replaced him not sat on wallet

    • SPECTRUM says:

      T. boyle,- Dead right ! Wenger had the chance to buy or LOAN Klaas Jan Huntelaar, a prolific scorer with good technique- 186 goals in 290 club games. 15 goals in 30 internationals. Look up his credentials on “Wikipedia”. He would have made a great fill in for RVP.He was available for quite a while, but Wenger thought we had enough strikers !!!? Not worth even trying out QN LOAN apparently !
      So we end up playing Arshavin out of position as a striker,as we didn’t have anyone else to use there.Great forward planning, Wenger.

  28. gav says:

    i blame football manager for all these anti wenger morons. as for them shareholders last year, totally unaccetable. the lack o respect for wenger is unforgiveable. his selfless act of putting the club first is totally unapreciated by some. u think he likes not winning trophys? u think he wants to put his reputation on the line for his amusement? please go and support man city, i think u’ll be happy there.

  29. 7masters says:

    One thing presents Arsenal team are crap save for RVP,Cesc,tv the rest are just ordinary…Arshavin mmm it like waiting flower to bloom you either missed or waiting to see him focus. Worse of All is the manager he seem to have developed long pinochio nose for lies that why people are fed up.

    Wenger is more a developer than tactictian and he need new team around or face disaster. Defence,goalie and even midfield is problem area why? Whoever Arsenal buy to score goals is going to starve for lack of ball? Simply no good supply but plenty of chances to pass sideways.
    Wenger brigade are funny lot almost they would get excited be mere mentions of his name weird?

    Anyone remember Wigan, Birmingham or other low points? Wenger must go after next season as he promised. I have written our chances off as long as he with us. Full stop

    AKB why don’t all start supporting PSG that where he is heading.Au revoir

  30. WengerIsWrong says:

    FANS WHO CHANTs “in arsene we trust” is ARSENE WENGER FANS. And i’m not his fans. But i’m arsenal fans. In Arsenal i love.

  31. InArseneWeTrust says:

    what a stupid article, sufficient funds is how much mate? and of course wenger aint gonna spend big, you want him to spend 50 million? get real, wenger knows who he wants and he might bring in 3/4 players, vermaelen cost 10m and he was instantly successful, so if we have 25-35m to spend that isn’t spending massive amounts of money.
    however you have definitely won the award of attention seeking article of the week..

  32. Matt says:

    Really strange these blogs you get people expressing views and because other people dont agree with them they start abusing them like they are more loyal fans.Just because fans dont protest outside the ground doesn’t make everything Wenger does right plenty of fans at the matches dont agree with his transfer policy doesn’t mean you stop going to games.The problem has been all the promises made while we were building the stadium that have not come to fruission and the lies that have been told by Wenger & the board.Anybody who thinks we dont need a new GK are lying to themselves or know nothing about football.To compalin about the injuries is a red-herring RVP,Rosicky,Eduardo,Gallas etc have been injured for large parts of every season they have been at the club.

  33. Hamza Yassine says:

    Guys, Im a goonner for life, and i even have a tattoo on my arm for arsenal… i just want to share my opinion, and you may take it as u like…..

    Ok im with wenger, and all what u said is right! a huge achievement, to stay a top 4 team, while you have to pay for the stadium, Plus Arsene bought Nasri, Arsha, Vermael,,,,
    Im with wenger, that we dont buy titles, and we have the beautiful side of the game,
    Im with him, for his 3pl and 4 fa. and the unbeaten historical season,
    Wenger never manged for a short period, but for a future,,, Honestly i started to doubt this future…

    Ill try not to contradict my self, but im scared that thats the truth, So please read carefully:
    Please CANNN SOMEONE TELL ME WHY HE BOUGHT SILVESTERE FOR 500K POUND?!!? I mean wtf?!? ok he bought cheap experience! BUT we all know that he is not good, SO Y IN JAN, at least didnt loan a good Defender?!?!

    2) Eduardo da silva: is he a finisher? striker? i mean i can only remember in 3 years just one goal against bolton, i think,,,, Ok the lad broke his leg, Fine by me, ( WHY KEEP HIM?) sell him!!, y is arsene saying i need to talk to him? talk about what Mr.Wenger?! he is just not good,,,

    3)Nicklas Bendtenr: this year all of u guys think that he is gr8!! well please! crorect me if im wrong! he scored like 12 goals maybe!! BUT CAN U PLEASE TELL ME HOW MANY EASY GOALS HE MISSED?!… ok if wenger wants to keep him, ill accept only for Carling cup! Maybe Arsenal can win it since 1993!!! MOURINHO i remember played a full squad against us, coz at least its a cup!, n this cup if u win it, it will give u motivation to go forward, and finish the league w a trophy.

    4)GK: i was in England during the game of arsenal vs tottenham, the 4-4. when fuckn bentley scored,,, I swear ,i defended Almunia while i was heading home, and every one was saying arsenal need a World Calss Gk,, i was like, no, Almunia is good, but it was only a mistake, n i remember him saving the penalty against R,Kean,, but after this year?!?! NO COMMENT, from Him And Fabiansky,,,ABSOLUTELY NOTHING,, and plz dont tell me give fab time, BECAUSE WE ALL KNOW THAT IF A GK MAKES ONLY 1 MISTAKE, WE CONCEDE,! so its a critical position.

    5)Can i please know the names of the arsenal bench::?!?

    2 . VELA?!? i mean vela can he change a game?!??! can someone tell me if carlos vela can change a game vs united or chelsea or barca?!??!
    3.Denilson or Diaby: i duno whos better, or whos worst, for gods sake wenger, choose one,if not u shouldnt have accepted not to negotiate a contract w flamini!! he was amazing w cesc, but these 2 arent helping cesc at all!
    4.Fabianky n Manone,, NO comment
    5.Eduardo,, No comment
    6:Jack W n A Ramsey!… Perfect!! but for Carling cup games, if we have a Physical Game?! BE WARE OF UR LEGS LADS !!! ((CAN U REMEMBER WHEN WE HAD PARLOUR,Petit,VIERA!)) LOOK AT US NOWW

    8)Why DONT WE HAVE GOOD DEFENDER MIDF in case song gets injured?!,,,, look at the top teams::
    Real:alonso,diarra, Chels:Essien,J O Mikel Inter:cambiasso,thiago motta,montari Barca:Toure Kieta……….

    Arsenal fc: Song &????



    To End it,, i just want you to know, that after all what i said, i still believe in the boss, its just i know that the premiership changed,, n look at the salaries,, THE FUCKN ADEBA YOR is taking 170k i think,, its insane yes,, but i think if wenger can sacrifice n take a risk, im 100% sure its gonna be worth it,… n maybe if stan Kronkey or Usmanov will overtake the club during arsens time, theres no fear at the club, Coz im more than sure that wenger will accept this Under His conditions only….. oh and one thing,, i just hate about arsene,that in the end of the season he didnt say that the lack of experience and lack of quality, made us lose everything, he just blamed the injuries,, well if you dont buy physical players ull always have the same problem….

    Dear Arsenal Fans, i can only say, May God help us, coz next season, Manutd will buy, Chelsea,MANNCITYY, Totten,,, they will all BUY, so i just hope we will be surprised , and arsene will stay, so lets give him some time to think about it, he us the boss in the end!….

  34. Charl;es says:

    The problem is that most of Gunner fans posting comments act like prosititutes. Fact 1. All the pundits in the land concluded that Arsenal will finish below Citeh and Spurs b4 the season started. The fact that with the injuries we got to where we are was a miracle.
    Fact 2. Gazidis did not mention how much cash is at the clubs disposal to spend, so how do we know we have mega money.
    Fact 3. Lets assume we have £40m to spend do anyone in this forum think that it qualifies as mega money, when Chelsea, Citeh, Man U, Barca and Real will certainly spend twice the amount in 2 or 3 players. Considering that all teams will be shopping from the same pound.
    Having said this, we need AW vision and eye for talent to compete in and stand a chance in this insane tranfer market. £40m will not get more than 2 world class players. Melo and Buffon will probably cost more with a good display in the world cup.
    People, lets be realistic and give AW some respect for what he is doing for the team. Yes, i for one want my team to win some trophy but to think AW thinks otherwise is stupid and beggars belief. I know he wants success more than anything for this club but at the same time he has to deal with the fact that money is tight. We have to live within our means as we have no billionaire owner that will give him a blank cheque. Until that happens, the biggest assets we have is not Cesc or RVP but AW. So lets shoe some appreciation.

    I see you’re twisting quotes to suit your absurd agenda. At no point did Gazidis say we have “mega money”. As you later point out he says we have “sufficient funds to invest”. Which means we can afford to buy some players, not necessarily “spend big”. Wenger says we will buy some players but not spend big. So actually they are saying pretty much the same thing, but that wouldn’t be nearly as much fun as whinging like a spoilt child would it?

    This site is pathetic, moronic and clearly has no grasp of the real facts.
    Here’s an idea for you; watch and listen to the free video’s on from the Q&A with Gazidis.

    It’s all there. It’s there in black and white. The FACTS. Not the bullshit spouted here. The facts about money, the stadium debt, transfer budget – what is included in that budget. Listen and stop all this absolute shit you keep spouting.

    Mr Gazidis has confirmed everything i and sensible fans have known all along and how lucky we are to have Arsene in charge rather than someone who is prepared to bankrupt the club.

    Do you think Pompey wanted to be in the position they are? Do you think their FA Cup win means that being f*cked as club is acceptable?
    If that’s what you wanted for Arsenal, to spend beyond our means and f*ck the club p then you clearly do not have Arsenal in our blood.

    The club is about yesterday and tommorow not just today.

    Merse – Spending within your means is a given- no one will dispute that, and I’m not either. But last season Wenger was told “Arsene will be given the money to buy if he needs it”. In other words, he had a budget WITHIN which to spend. But he is not by nature, a big spender.
    This is the problem. Good players, experienced players – not more kids- are what we need(ed).They don’t come cheap.So when you need to splash the cash on quality, YOU MUST ! Even if it goes against your nature, and provided, as I said , it is WITHIN your budget.
    Failure to strengthen the squad when required cost us the league.The buck stops with him.The disturbing irony is history could repeat itself, judging from his recent statement.
