Richard Branson once said,
“We are human beings, not human doings”.
This is a great mantra for life, (and one I should personally follow a lot closer) but this doesn’t work for a football club.
Just being a football club doesn’t cut it. You have to do as well and Arsenal Football Club are not doing.
At present you are being, existing, just turning up, going through the motions, taking the/our money and running and frankly, this is just bullish!t.
Arsene, it’s one of 2 scenarios and it’s your call:
1 – You are a stubborn fool, who truly believes that the players at your disposal and your tactics are right and beyond reproach. That it will all come good in the end and you will be proven to be the genius you truly believe you still are.
2 – Stan is just in it for the money and he is stopping you from investing in the players the club needs to move forward.
Which ever, this process is killing the club we all love and if you love the club as much as you say you do, it’s time to make your stand.
Admit you and the management team are wrong, your methods are outdated and resign
Come out against ‘Short Armed Stan’, explain to us all his restrictions, side against him, resign and show us all how serious your love for the club is.
Which ever it is, the club is in a bloody diabolical mess and we are the bloody laughing stock of the footballing world.
• Our best player is about to/has left to join City.
• We have a whole starting 11 of players in or entering the last year of their contracts.
• The team is about to be decimated and nothing appears to be being done about it.
According to Soccerex Football Finance 100, we are the 2nd most financially powerful club in the world.
Their research showed that Arsenal have £766 million worth of fixed assets, the highest in world football and £300 million in the bank (bettered only by United).
This is all based on an outstanding business model, off the back of the move to The Emirates. And yes, this is the proper way to run a football club, with no sugar/oil daddy buying everything you want, but if you don’t use the financial power you build up, what’s the point, unless you just want it for yourself !!!!!?
On the pitch it’s no better…
Under the club’s training methods, injuries are rife, the career of the best English midfielder of his generation has stalled and defending is seen as a by-product, not a necessity.
On the field it’s just plain ridiculous. The players seem unprepared, uninformed and uninterested. Defensively inept, tactically naive and uninspiring in attack.
Week in, week out, it’s the same uninspiring performances, with the same predictable results. There are some glimmers of hope, but these last for fleeting moments and then normal service is resumed.
14 years ago we were invincible, now we are incomprehensible.
Please, please, please, for the sake of Arsenal Football Club and all loyal Gooners everywhere:
One of you has to come clean;
One of you has to tell us the truth;
One of you has to hold their hand up;
Otherwise, come May, there may not be much left to salvage.
Yours faithfully (To Arsenal Football Club)
