Wenger having said earlier in his interview we are still looking for defenders and it ere not look like a deal would be done before sunday then fecking added "we will concentrate on winning the big game on sunday then we will decide if we sign anymore players or not ". He can go @#$%& himself if he is not bringing in more players.

OMG!!!



Arsenal is a top 16 European club that will remain a top 16 European club and the Emirates is tape-loop that will win trophy after trophy

Nothing will change to stop Arsenal's domination except the ticket prices which must go up so that Wenger can make even more marquee signings.

Kroenke, Gazidis & Wenger are made for each other a glorious triumvirate heading for immortality.

Arsenal’s not a football club it is the one true religion Milton Palmer

He has started to tie that noose for his neck a bit earlier than i expected. If no more signings he will have to be on run of good results till shareholders meeting in october or hell will break out at it. Imagine poor results with only two signings and then board reveal our debts have gone way down again. If they thought last seasons meeting was rough then they will be aghast at what happens at this one.

Could `We are not looking for a goalie at moment ` mean he already has one in his pocket? ie Schwartzer



Arsenal are going to win a BIG trophy this season.

What sense does it make to go into a season with the bare bones in such a crucial position as CB,never mind with Fred Karnos supplying the GKs.
Djourou cannot be relied on,so we are left with TV and Kos already,its absolute madness.
Im slowly beggining to turn from the manager,he seems to live on a different planet to me thats for sure.



DB10,the best.

He said today also "Liverpool test will show we can win the league" so if we don't beat Liverpool does that also me we can't? Wenger is committing suicide right in front of us at the moment.

this is it for weneger, no more excuses, no more blaming the ref, no more blaming the opposition in their tactics, no more blaming our clubs who are in debt but still paying 15-20 million for players

no more chances for wenger - 6 seasons without a trophy or final is not good enough for arsenal

i for one will not be saying 'in wenger we trust' anymore

he identified our problems at the end of the season, and he hasnt done anything about it - what is he getting paid for???? its so clear that we need improvement in the defensive side and he has done sod all

weve been told we can compete in the transfer market so why did we not offer the 4 million for schwarzer straight after they quoted.

4 million is a bargain - look at liverpool they have just spent 2.5 million on brad jones from middlesboro who was schwarzer no.2!!!!!!!!

wenger and the board get ur head out of the sand - the football market has changed dramatically in the last 5 years

bring back david dein - there is something not right that we have only spent 2-3 million this summer!!!! weve also probably saved around £120,000 a week on wages with gallas, silvestre, campbell and senderos leaving

what is going on

That's Wenger for you, going into the league with the minimum, last season we wanted a replacement for Adebayor and he didn't come until this summer, I'm sure we'll get Campbell's replacement sometime next summer.

All hell has broken loose..(Sm22)
but don't forget Wenger is a risk taker and don't forget he knows that even if team doesn't win anything still sky isn't falling down considering how though this year competition would be if he could finish in top 4 again he has done a good business..and tell me a soul in the world who could dare to bet against Wenger not finishing in top 4...so my analysis is Wenger knows how to finish in top 4 and from the past Wenger knows how to win the league also so there is only positive things can be expected otherwise everything is normal..

Nah..Wenger is a risk taker in terms of trying to do things without spending $$..why do you think someone a risk taker if he spends money lavishly..everybody knows risk is reduced when you have more resources..so of course Wenger is a risk taker..and I'd say successful risk taker..

Three f*cking months hes had to sort this out. He'll come out with the usual b0llocks 'we were close to signing somebody but were £2 off' when the window finishes.

He's making sure this season will be his last

I'm going on sunday but f*ck me never have I been more disinterested for the start of a new season.

Its the same old sh*t as last year and the year before, we're at least two players short, the squad is full of injury prone players. FFS (Sm164)

wenger had no money to spend anyway!!! a risk taker is spending 15 million plus on a player and hoping he will be worth it!!!

Actually, you are right..Wenger has no money to spend..

People who take note on my post, I've posted many many times before more than a year that having money in the bank or whereever and having money to spend are two different things...Wenger has no authority over Arsenal money, balance sheet or anything. Wenger is a shield which club management uses without having to spend money...the day Wenger is gone, all hell will actually break loose, as no one could expect to keep the club in top plight with the amount spent by the club. So if and when Wenger is gone, will that be good or bad for the club is an interesting thing to watch...
I have said many many times also I don't blame Wenger a word for not spending but I do blame Wenger for actually less focusing matters on the pitch rather than overall club management. I expected a lot more from Wenger in progress of players like Denilson, Walcott, Diaby, Djourou, Bendtner, Fabianski, Clichy even RVP and Sagna...the stagnation or snail pace growth of these players actually made me believe he doesn't provide much time on players development. Then if you look at world football, you will notice there are people like Pep, Dunga, Marcelo Bielsa, Dutch manager, Luis Van Gaal, Feguson, Morinho, Felix Magath has introduced different variety of football in terms of change in formation, reducing the rigidity bringing in flexibility, fluidity to the game. These things attribute to less predictability and more chances of winning matches. Wenger ball or whatever you call is becoming more and more predictable and I don't see any effort from the great man to reinvent the beautiful game. There are much more to look into rather than only buying players, 20 years old Thomas Muller, 21 years old Ozil are examples of how players could be matured to be world class, 22 years old Messi or Ronaldo attended the best of height just at 21, same goes to Rooney. They ware not a bought players but made players.
The young Selecao played against USA had players like 18 years old Neymar and 20 years old Ganso..I'm proud of them actually I wanted to be proud of Denilson but somehow I didn't see him progressed as expected. Why this is the case, shouldn't it be that many of the world's best young players are from Arsenal!! The amount of youth in a big club like Arsenal and their exposure to top class football demands a lot more quality players considering the chances they get.
Just think, Fluminese now running at top of Brasilian league and they can't afford to play Wellington Silva, think about it a Brasilian club can't afford to provide chances to a 17 years old quality player but Arsenal could..so don't you think with some better quality training and mentoring a player like Wellington should be a world beater when he's at the age of 20 to 21..I'm disappointed with Arsene Wenger in this regard, he lost the touch of producing top quality players or I don't know has he have ever done it in the past or just bought talented players...Wenger needs to prove that being purist and a true top quality manager he knows how to develop top quality talents...

What planet is Wenger from? Geez, doesn't he ever learn from our past. This is should be his last season if the team fall short yet again.

He who fails to plan, plans to fail.
