So another transfer window has closed. Who'd be an Arsenal fan, eh?
A lot of the top teams around Europe have lost players for one reason or another, but they had the foresight and/or basic intelligence to replace them. What was that abject clown doing? His usual shtick - excuses, lies and nothing else. Remember when the season ended a few months back? Like all other clubs, the board got together to plan for the new season. That meant stratagems and ideas for the benefit of the club, the squad and - most importantly - the supporters. Have a gander at the coven that we have to suffer with:
"This gullible lot, that usually believe any flannel that we throw at them, are going to be renewing their season tickets over the next few weeks. How can we con them into lining all of our pockets yet again?"
"I know, that M'Bappe kid has had a couple of good games at Monaco. Let's create the fiction that we are interested in him."
"What an excellent idea! They'll never suspect the truth!"
Thus begun weeks and weeks of utter bullshit. There is so much of it at the Emirates these days, that it's now wonder that the pitch is so lush all of the time. Groundsmen aren't especially required with the likes of Kroenke, Gazidis and Wenger around. There's more than enough fertiliser coming from that lot. Fortunately, long-time fans have become immune to these parasitic reptiles, and that number is on the increase. Fans like Mr DT (check out his YT channel), Troopz and AFTV do sterling work in exposing everything that is wrong with Arsenal FC. As much effort as they put in though, there are still a good number of 'In Wenger, we trust' bunch of wankers that clearly know nothing about football or the club. Some of these are even more deluded than our so-called manager, ackcheloi insisting that Arsenal can still somehow win the league - or at least challenge - with this clueless moron still running the club into the ground.
Wenger has won 7 FA Cups. Yes he has. A lot of those, like early PL titles, were done with the remnants of the George Graham teams. Bould, Adams, Keown, Dixon, Bergkamp and Winterburn. Those are the players that needed little to no advice on how to play the game. The current lot may not need similar advice either, but there is no-one around on match day to see if that's true or not. The only person there is an ageing old has been that has been living off past glories for a decade and a half that were made with the personnel from someone else's players. Evidence of this can be found from just last weekend. 52m well spent on a squad player. The Bundesliga's best left-back from last season sat on the bench without ever coming on, as a right back was played at left back and showed more passion for his hairdo than the game. The Ox, mid game, seems to have let the cat out of the bag several days early by letting the Kopites know that he was going to be one of them within a week. Ramsey tried to remind Shambles that there was a game going on, ignoring it himself and probably wondering why he wasn't inside Liverpool's penalty area at the wrong moment.
Bang! Deadline day.
True to his word, The Ox signs for Liverpool a few days after making his debut for them. Perez and Campbell (remember them?) both go out on loan to now bigger clubs. After selling The Ox, the race was on to bring in a direct replacement. Can you feel the pulse pounding excitement as Wenger sits on both thumbs doing absolutely F.A.? As the afternoon wore on, news began to break from inside the Emirates. There's no money available! The fictional 120m for M'Bappe - where was that? Oh, that's right; that was a token gesture to legitimise the illusion that this mob are actually trying to do something! Silly us, eh? Mid evening: oops, we seem to have found 90m down the back of one of the sofas, allegedly. We can't possibly use it to bring in unofficial number one transfer target, Thomas Lemar. Can we? Hmm. Supposing that we wait until about 10pm. The France World Cup Qualifier should have finished by then. We can give him half an hour to discuss, and agree, personal terms - have his medical - before signing the contract that we can wave under his nose mid shower. Brilliant! What's a defender? Oh, those blokes that we keep getting rid of, while all other teams get them? Nah!
Time for new man to have a go at running our great club. Anyone have Mike Bassett's phone number?
