Arsenal: Its Time To Splash The Cash

March 23, 2008


I wrote on several of the wonderful Arsenal blogs on WordPress at the start of this season that a top 4 finish this year would be Arsene Wengers finest acheivement as Arsenal manager. The squad he has assembled is full of young men with potential but has as been proved incapable of maintaining a serious challenge for the title. The fact that Wengers methods and scouting network continue to produce wonderful football cannot be questioned but it is time for Wenger to realise that the Premiership and partucularly the rest of the “Big 4” have moved on.

I think there’s a risk that Wengers refusal to buy established guranteed stars is denying him his rightful place alongside Sir Alex. The financial restraints of previous years have been lifted by the income from the magnificent Emirates Stadium and can no longer be used as an excuse. It is now evident that last summer or in January Wenger should have bought big. Anelka back to Arsenal? Tevez from west Ham? Torres from under Rafa’s nose? Hargreaves to supplement the wonderful Fabregas? The list could go on, it breaks my heart as a football fan that Abramovichs toy box football team “I vant a Ballack NOW” is the one remaining challenger to Uniteds mix of the best of English and foreign talent.

I hope Wenger looks at todays result and goes to the money men at Arsenal with a list of 4 or 5 top, proven players that can lift his team above Avram Grants automotons. Swallow your pride Arsene, we all know how great your are with undiscovered talent now show us you can shop with the best as well.
