Arsene Wenger has called upon us to be proud of supporting Arsenal.
“I have been in football for a long, long time and I don’t think just spending money is a target that is defendable,” said Wenger. “To spend the money on a top player is defendable. But just to spend the money is like you are worried.?
“Our fans can be proud of the way we run this club, of the quality of player we have and of the financial situation that is existing at the Club. Rather than convicting this club, they have more reason to be proud of the whole situation here.?
“We have built a team and a stadium in such a short space of time, and have a strong financial situation – and we always survived at the top level. There are more reasons to be positive than the negatives ones being sold by everybody.”
We may have an excellent financial model at the club but why is it no bringing in silverware. I am sick and tired of being told that we are in a very good financial situation but if we can not win anything then what is the point. Wenger talks about only spending money on quality players and I agree with that but why are we not buying these quality players? Why are they going to Manchester United, Chelsea and Manchester City before us? Why are quality players wanting to leave Arsenal.
Let us take the blinders off now and not fall for this “we are in a good financial position bull****”!
Am I proud of being an Arsenal fan? Yes, I am a Gooner til I die but I am not happy with the way things are going right now at the club. Even on Saturday against Newcastle, you can see that there is still a lot of work to be done on the training ground and we need more players to come in and make the side better or else we may find ourselves outside the top four this season.
