Arsenal Message Board
For what seems like forever we have had to listen to Wenger's 4 phase summer plan to pull the wool over our eyes.
Phase one is prior to renewal of season tickets and comes in a form similar to "we will sign some additional players and strengen the squad" and the club will say "If the manager wants to spend money on new players, the money is available".
Phase 2: "We are looking for good players but I can't talk about it"
Phase 3: "We are good enough to win the PL with the squad we have. We don't need to strengthen the squad."
Phase 4: "We tried but clubs were asking silly money for players who are not as good as the ones we have."
Wenger quote from Asia:
"With or without additions we can be title challengers next season," Wenger told reporters in Japan. "We try to do the job and we will try to do it well, but nothing has been concluded with anybody.
"What we want is not a name but a good player. The name is less important. What is more important is the quality of the player. At the moment I must tell you we are not close to signing anybody.
"Of course we want to do as many top players as we can, but we also have to focus on the players we have and develop them."
Shame on you govinda for buying into the rhetoric that was bleeted out for the 9th year, dont say i didnt warn you. Thinking this year would be different under wengers charge is silly, the man will not change and is visually impaired when it comes to the talents of our squad.
