Why We Won’t Win The Title Until The Season Is Over
It is because we wait until the very end to do things. What’s the point? We should sneakily rip a few pages from certain Italian clubs’ books and win the title before anyone else can.
We need to learn to spend wisely. Too much money goes into paying our players. Why do we even bother when Barcelona won the treble with their players playing for free? Some of the things we do boggles the mind.
The money should be going not to the players, but to the people that really matter. I don’t mean Wenger should pay himself even more, because as we’ve seen with England, paying the manager a lot of money doesn’t help much. The people we should be paying are the ones that can help us win the title before the first kick of the round thing.
As you know I’m trying to be as vague as possible. Being too explicit about things can hurt you, as Joan Laporta found out. Saying too much never helps. So I hope anyone who reads this and Arsene Wenger himself understands what I am on about, even though what I’m saying may not make sense.
I read somewhere that the highest transfer fee ever paid for a referee was 27 million pounds. It is not a lot of money. It is good value. Just saying.
The problem with us is that we’re all too nice. I remember Walcott saying he won’t be a nice guy anymore but he’s still nice. He obviously lied, which isn’t a nice thing to do, but it’s certainly not dirty enough. While our rivals have players like you-know-who and you-know-what (that plays for the Totts), we’re stuck with these nice kids who like to play “good football.” I don’t want to see good football. I don’t even like football. I like winning things. Win for me, Arsene.
I am a lot of things but what I am not is a waiter. I don’t like waiting until May to see my club lift a trophy. I am ambigious enough to say that I demand success now. Do what you need to, Arsenal. Trophies don’t grow on trees, and only the early birds can catch them.
This article was send to us by Waleed Ahmad who has his own Arsenal blog since recently.
If you have an article in you, and you think it would fit with the Untold Arsenal philosophy, we’d love to receive it. If we publish it, you’ll be on a web site read by around a quarter of a million people a month.
The main point to remember is that Untold has a point of view – that we support Arsene Wenger and the club come what may – so if you want to argue that Wenger should go now, we won’t publish your piece. But don’t worry, there are many blogs that share that viewpoint, so you are sure to find a publisher.
Our areas of interest are: the positive nature of the Wenger revolution, corruption in football, football finance, the need for reform, the cretinous nature of most football journalism, the players at all level in the club – including the ladies’ team – and football humour.
