I have a heart felt plea, a plea that Arsene must adhere to, for the future of the club.
‘Arsene Wenger, please retire, please retire the number 9 shirt!!!’
It’s destroying careers and undermining the club.
Okay so the last statement is a bit over the top, but the shirt is defiantly cursed and needs to go.
As I stated previously here on Gunners Town many have tried to tame the beast, but all have failed.
I truly felt that Ha Ha Poldi was the one to finally put an end to the jinx, But alas, after some fleeting cameos and a failed stint in Milan, he’s off to pastures new in Turkey.
If Arsene truly desires a number 9, he has 2 choices;
- Promote from within
- Go large
The only real option inside the club is Wellbez, but he’s not first choice, not a natural number 9, the shirt should be worn by a definite starter and I like Wellbez and I don’t want to see his career dissipate under curses influence.
Outside the club, the big names are there, but they ain’t coming cheap, with Higuain and Benzema being the main 2 protagonists.
I could wax lyrical about both, but we all know what they can do.
My questions are;
Will Arsene be willing to pay £45m for a player he could have got for £15m less but turned down 2 seasons ago;
Would Arsene be willing to buy a player who seeming can’t play alongside Giroud. (At international level anyway) and would Benitez really sell him.
Arsene; I say, just retire (the number) and be done with it.
