Good evening people. I attended a meeting where some of the bosses where Arsenal fans, however, they made me a little rueful. One of the bosses went on to talk about how he loved the club but had lost faith in Wenger 4 years ago and how he couldn’t believe Wenger signed an old, spent goalkeeper in Petr Cech…
I couldn’t speak because:
1. I’m at the bottom of the food chain aka this man is the is Ivan Gazidis of the company while I am, for now, a Shad Forsythe. I like to keep my job thank you.
2. I was probably too gobsmacked to make a tidy argument anyways.
Let me make this clear, I have been disappointed in some of Wenger’s decisions over the years BUT, that doesn’t mean he has failed to make brilliant ones; he’s human for goodness sake.
Wenger has managed to put together the best team since the Invincibles and the future seems bright. We’re not selling our best players anymore and we really do look like title contenders for the first time in a while.
So what do I expect my Arsenal-loving/Wenger-bashing boss to do?
That’s what the boss and Gazidis were on about at the last meeting with fans. Everyone’s believing again and that’s good for the players, for the club and for our blood pressures.
On Cech. There’s no doubt that he’s still one of the better goalkeepers in Europe, no, the world! You cannot count the top 10 goalies in the world without his name coming up so what’s the problem boss?
Besides, we’ve not even signed the man yet, so let’s wait and see. Chelsea wouldn’t let him go if they didn’t have the Thibaut dude, so let’s chill.
Wenger may have made mistakes over the years, especially in his purchases but don’t we all? Half of us some seasons ago wanted M’Vila and Benteke at some point, if we were mangers, we would have bought them but look at them now, they don’t even cross our minds because we’re bigger than that now. We deserve better.
I’m grateful for what we have now – Sanchez, Ozil, Rambo, Welbz, Walcott, Carzola, Gabriel… – all good players in their own rights. Let’s not look at what’s wrong right now because there aren’t many like before; let’s be grateful for what’s right.
