Leicester City, the mighty foxes…
Although we had the majority of the game, as in, in the meaningless way, by percentages of possession, we never looked like we would or could win this match.
Arsenal started with Yaya Sanogo up front, again. I don’t know why and neither does any other Arsenal supporter. It’s quite obvious to the masses that Sanogo is not a great striker, he is in fact, at the moment anyway, a donkey. His first touch is poor, control in general is a calamity and his shots, when on target are always aimed at the keeper’s torso. It beggars belief that Wenger still picks him and doesn’t go into the transfer market for another forward. With Giroud out until the new year, we have never needed another a goalscorer like we have now. Wenger’s joke of an attitude to spending money is beginning to get on everyone’s tits. I understand the whole wankstained philosophy that he spends the club’s money like he spends his own, but isn’t he just stupid to work like that? Like it or lump it, this is the business end of the most corporate and globalised sport on earth. To win, unfortunately you need to buy top players. So for f**k’s sake buy a striker!
I am still massively infuriated by seeing Mandzukic at Atletico Madrid and now Falcao has just signed on a season long loan from Monaco to Man United, another laugh at our expense! Rooney, Van Persie and Falcao up front for a team that didn’t qualify for the Champions League. If we ever had a chance to get one over such an obvious rival, it was when they were in the doldrums, but what do we do, sit back and let them take one of the best finishers in the world because, after all, we have Sanogo, who has still not scored a goal for Arsenal club in a competitive match.
Remy, we sat back after making the same bid as Chelsea, what the f**k nuts do Arsenal reps expect? Oh he signed for Chelsea, for more wages? Really? Well f**k me sideways.
Cavani at PSG. I would throw the entire shit reserve team plus the useless as all f**k forwards of the first team, yellow card collector Flamini, Thomas (watch me screw up another Arsenal break by holding onto the ball too long) Rosicky plus 40 million to land him. We have nobody capable of what he can do. Giroud when fit is half the striker Cavani is. He is supposedly unhappy at PSG, please Wenger do something.
Central midfielder needed… What happened this week to a midfielder who Wenger has tried to sign previously and who the manager clearly admired? He moved on a free from Real Madrid to Bayern Munich, Arsenal didn’t even try to get Xabi Alonso.
Wenger bemoaons the fact that signing players doesn’t win trophies. That, Arsene, is exactly what it does. It is unfortunate that football has become the monster that ate itself, but the fact of the matter is, it has, so what do we fans do, give up supporting our beloved club and just politely applaud when we don’t make a decent signing in three areas where we a desperate, central defence, centre mid and striker, but are told that club is in rude health financially and your season ticket is one of the most expensive in the world. F**k off!
The FA cup win was wonderful but it has helped paper over cracks that the game against Leicester just exposed again; toothless failings in front of goal. The only reason Sanchez scored the first goal of the match was because Sanogo was all over the shop and didn’t know what to do with the ball and kind of accidentally hooked it into the path of Sanchez.
I hate being a Wenger basher, what with everything he has done for the club, but compared to the innovative breath of fresh air that Mr Wenger was when he arrived at Arsenal, he is a mere shadow of that man. Alex Ferguson was set back by Wenger when the the man from Alsace arrived, but in time, the Scotsman worked him out. That’s what great managers do, they continue to learn and adapt, Wenger still seems to believe in his initial philosophy, when the game has moved on leaps and bounds without him.
A suggestion could be, that if the club doesn’t like spunking huge sums of cash on players, maybe we should start investing more in the youth academy? Having top of the range gym equipment and the best facilities in the land does not mean your kids are any better at football than they are at other clubs. Maybe we could take a long hard look at clubs like Southampton and figure out how year after year they nurture and grow such talented footballers,but then again, why do we need to learn to do that? They can do all the hard work and we’ll just nick them.
