Why Wenger is better than every manager in the premiership by Stephen
“what an Outlandish statement!?!”
Remember I said Premiership not Europe nor the world
I have 3 reasons for this
Most of you would remember the whole David Dein saga. Most of you would remember that this happened in 2005 and all of you remember this was the last year we won a trophy.
Now before we all point the blame on the trophy drought at player power or Arsenal being a selling or feeder club, lets take a step back and evaluate the last 7 years. 3 competition Finals including the Champions League, top four finish without fail every year and always get past the group stages of the Champions league year in year out. I don’t think we appreciate how good this is. I don’t know about you but I prefer consistency over erratic performances and unreliability, and don’t go shouting to me Chelsea!!, Look where Liverpool are. Won the competition in 2005 , EPL runners up in 2009 ..where are they now? Take that Carling cup and shove it where the sun don’t shine. Its funny I said Liverpool because they’ve lost very instrumental players to Europe’s ‘giants’ in quick succession. Xabi Alonso, Torres and Mascherano. Question I ask is that why despite these players moving there was not as much media hysteria about it, other that the price tag of Torres they sort of just.. happened, however RVP, Fabregas, Nasri and co, the stories kept on going all summer long and didn’t seem to go away
yet I digress..
We all know the who’s in the infamous Darren Dein’s little black book and the coincidence that all these players have left arsenal, surprisingly all from humble beginnings with transfer fees averaging 1 million to exits with averaging 25 million, this alone can be viewed as shrewd and fantastic business on its own but again lets go deeper. We might not all realise it but we all assumed Wenger was oblivious to the fact that these “players” had the same agent with the same chilling link to the club up until the opening of the transfer window year in year out. He knew perfectly well, so what did he do? got the best out of them and now look who’s laughing as one of the most stable sports franchises on the planet
“nobody cares about financial stabilty, we want trophies!”
If youre thinking this, shame on you
I need not repeat the stats over our consistency over the past 7 years.
What I’m trying to get at is, is that Wenger has the unique quality we meer mortals call extended foresight. Pundits are left scratching they’re heads at why we let these said players leave and so easily. yet again do not run and say “Wenger wanted to keep them at all costs!!” in reply I say, don’t be a fucking idiot and believe the shit caught offside have to offer, its called business. What Wenger has achieved slowly but surely is to essentially mug off rid arsenal of the poisonous Dein relationship and also pocketing hundreds of millions. Remember we have a stadium to pay off. No financial meltdown for us Man U eat your eat you heart out. If managing to remain as Europes big boys without the big cash isn’t genius I don’t know what is..
Over the years have you noticed the trend of players of a certain nationality incoming and their success of their national team?
France in the early 00s we have transfers of Anelka , Henry, Pires what did France win around that time? The world cup in 2002 and the euros in 2000.
Spain in the recent history treble winners Who have we only just aquired? CAZORLA? This makes the dream of players like Navas and Llorente a feasible acquisitions as we have the the right person to persuade, why do you think Giroud came to Arsenal and M’vila coming to Arsenal? Kosielny’s advice…
And now with the growing strength of the Germans we are starting to have pretty strong German contingent of the squad with Eisfeld, Merty and Poldi and with the arrival of Sahin this could be great.
Now the point of this is the extended foresight I was talking about, this shows that when times of acquiring a player go sour he has a man on the inside to be the little voice at the back of the transferred players mind, Arteta and Cazorla anyone?
This kills 2 bird with one stone, as not only does this make the transfer a shedload easier, players feel more at home with those they can speak they’re own language with …
Think of Zhirkov I blame the lack of performance of Russian players in the EPL to be that they’re all on they’re own at their clubs:
and yes even Arshavin
amazing players but all failed to make grade at EPL level
I reckon if we got Dzagoev, Arshavin would have shown he’s more than just a 15 million 1 trick pony
I lied there is no third reason
Wenger is the best and he knows what hes doing, hes not perfect or always spot on with transfers I leave the naming for you ,but trust in him
