The Wenger bus is……….parked

Arsene Wenger’s Arsenal have lit up the Premier League in the past decade with some of the best football ever seen on these shores, but nobody’s jumping inside the Emirates so far this term.

With two goalless draws in their first two outings in the Premiership this season, the pressure is on for Wenger and his men to start performing and picking up victories both at home and on the road.

There is no doubt the Gunners have the quality, even without old talisman Robin Van Persie or Alex Song. In Lucas Podolski and Olivier Giroud they have two strikers who can make a huge impact, but they need to be given time, and Santi Cazorla has shown glimpses of his brilliance already.

Many Arsenal fans would have been left feeling slightly deflated after transfer deadline day, with no signings brought in. Wenger hasn’t been as tight with the summer spending like past seasons though, and has a squad that will surely make a real push for the top four come May.

That may not be good enough for many associated with the North London outfit, when you think it was only eight seasons ago that an Arsenal team went unbeaten for an “invincible” season. However, every team has a transition period, and this new look side needs time to gel.

The fact is, the Emirates will see Champions’ League football again this season, and when the new players eventually adapt to English football, there are sure to be exciting times ahead for the Gunners.

    Rubbish! I thought you meant the bus is parked to take Wenger out of our club with the whole board!! They deserve the firing squad for the anguish they've put the fans through in the past 7 years.

    7 years of frustration and complaining by us fans, we pay the highest ticket prices in world football, we are constantly lied to and disrespected…..and we still fill the stadium every game. It's our own fault. Yes we love our club and that's why we go to games, but if we really love this club and want to see a change in the way things are run and want to see success, WE NEED TO STOP GOING TO THE GAMES. It is the only way for this con artist board/manager to get the hint. Keep going to games and buying merchandise but then stop moaning coz it's your own fault for what's going on. I have supported Arsenal for 44 years and always will. I do not support the management.

    good report and at last someone talking sense and seeing the whole picture ,which man arseanl fans don't mainly because they think we should be spending money we have't got, on average players with big reputations.
    arsenal would have a great side now if players like fabrigas rvp nasri decided to stay instead off chaseing big money.
    i will never believe these players leave't to win trophies when in the end they only moved for big wage packets.
    if they stayed and geled especially nasri and cesc last summer we could been winning something,last season , but players like them are ill advised by agents . they want success like all players but did't want to work hard for it.
    go back too 1987 when young players like adams , merson ,rocastle ,came into the side as youth players did they go out and look for other clubs who were winning trophies or did they work hard to establish them selfs in a arsenal side that not won a trophy in 8years not won a league title in 16 years ? did they like rvp fake injuries every season till they thought it time to leave ? no they stayed work hard gelled with players old and new ,learnt there trades and most off all had a hunger in thier bellies to win medals with arsenal. did ony adams not say ” i never contested a contract or cared what they offered me i just signed a contract because arsenal was where i want to be” thats what arsenal lack , leaders who want to win for the club first themselfs second and let the money handle it self .
    until that happens again we will continue to struggle , it not all wengers fault blame mainly lies with a boardroom more interested in them selfs and what they can get for them selfs then care bout arsenal, no wonder players look at it in the same way.

    Demongooner …. Wake up ! Even in the last year we could have bought Cahill, Enriques, Parker, – without spending huge money. Look who we have bought instead for similar money ….. Mertesecker, Santos and … er … Nobody. Many of us have long since seriously doubted the judgement – let alone the coaching / tactical ability – of our genius Monsieur.

    If you think the bus was parked for Wenga to be shipped out of Arsenal, then you be Neurotic. Well rather bother myself with rubbish, I think for once I have an author who actually appreciates the good works of WENGA. And to you the author of this article, I say Thumps Up… But to you bloody Neurotics, do well and support the SpudS.

    The new lads should have been bonding in Europe during the pre-season, we are paying for the PR trip to China which only Walcott seemed to enjoy. There are two strikers who should have initially come to Arsenal not Liverpool, Torres and Caroll.

    The article could have made sense 7 years ago. Wenger's desire is only on making money and making the board.
