He did the right thing with RvP. When RvP backed out of signing a new contract, he took the only offer available 24m from Utd .... that money went 50% towards buying Cazorla, Giroud, Monreal and Podolski .... we got them all of them for a combined 50m ....

If he'd waited a year with RvP we'd have got nothing ....

It was only after he had that top secret lobotomy that we started intentionally letting players run down contracts to nothing ... Arshavin - Denilson - Fabianski - Sagna - Bendtner - Diaby - Miyaichi - Podolski - Rosicky - Sanogo - Wilshere - Cazorla - Ramsey .... if we'd got just 10m each (and you get 10m for the tea lady these days) that's another 130m we'd have in this summer's budget .... it was an epic fail and for the life of me I have no idea why Gazidis and Wonger let it happen ... it just defies any busy logic

Lol most of those guys were turds or crocks. No one was going to pay anything for them other than Ramsey. And wenger was gone before Ramsey entered his last 12 months.
But nice try blaming everything on wenger.


Well he did sign all of the turds and crocks ... but whatever ....

Every single one of those players entered the last two years of their contracts under Wenger - seriously are you really this naive about business?

First - What are you even saying is that even English? .... you know this is now club policy, why? because Gazidis and Wonger f***ked up .....

“We need to make sure we are really disciplined. A good example of that is senior players that aren’t towards the end of their careers. We need to make sure that those players, when they’ve got two years left on their contract, we’re making the difficult decisions.

“We’re either renewing those players’ contracts, or we’re selling those players. So we’re going to have to be brave with those decisions along the way, because we can’t be in a situation where we are allowing players to walk out the door for free unless they are coming towards the end of their career.”

I can make policy as well. Let’s see this bozo implement it. It’s July and all he’s done is sign a Brazilian no ones heard of for six mil. :clap:

Remember when Wenger was doing us a favour saving all the money so his successor had a big budget and a squad of talented youth players lol?

Well he's left us with a 45m budget and a squad full of players nobody else wants on big salaries.

Classic game of two halves .... thanks for the good times but then what the f**k did you do?

Before the Emirates a solid business plan, tactics, results and trophies. Post Emirates got just about everything wrong .... not helped by having a Board intent on lining their pockets, followed by two Investors who for years put self interest above the club's ...

Even with that excuse his crazy "contracts won't matter" philosophy led us down a very dark dead end, one from which it will take us many years to recover ...

Sadly true, even more sad is some Wonga fanboys thinks the sun still shines out of his ass, he left us in a right mess the senile old tw@t.

Unfortunately, the most successful period of Wenger's career is but a distant memory now. Nothing lasting has been built upon it. We're reaping no rewards for those successes these days. Right now, our most recent memory of Arsene Wenger is the horrible position he's left us in. Wenger's legacy leaves a certain bitter taste in the mouths of many Arsenal fans, myself included.

That taste is the taste of failure.

I dunno actually, I drove past the Emirates yesterday and it looks freekin awesome. There were groups on the concourse and outside the Gunners shop taking photos and tourists hanging around.

Can't say I remember that happening much at Highbury.

In the end, it doesn't matter what the Emirates looks like. The Emirates does not and will not provide us with a financial advantage. That is all that matters.

No financial advantage for us, but others.....worked out well for them.
