People, get real.
Wenger will never change and he is untouchable as Kroenke loves him for generating profits every season in player trading:
summer 2011 - £70-mil for Cesc, Nasri, CLichy, etc
summer 2012 - £50-mil sales for Van Persie and Walcott
summer 2013 - £50-mil for Song, Vermaelen, etc
summer 2014 - £70-mil for Koscielny, WIlshere, etc
See, 5-Year Business Plan as presented by CEO of Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger, to Kroenke and Gazidis.
So you're saying this wasn't the case when it was the Board of English Gentlemen and he was selling or letting leave for free Vieira, Edu Pires, Reyes, Campbell, Henry, Ljungberg,Cole, Flamini, Gilberto, Toure, Adebayor, all of which had the same net effect on profitability as you suggest the sales you rightly suggest may be coming? You're saying it was different then?
Seems to me the only real difference was who Arsene Wenger was reporting to. Amd maybe if we had seen that for what iet was instead of trying to protect the image of our gallant Club Custtodians we wouldn't be where we are now.
Indeed this press gag on VanPersie is the verysd first real sign at all of the yanks doing anything any differently than the right proper gentlemen who predeced them. Because they haven't done anything else any differently than our Beloved custodians had since 2005 at all before this.
Sad how so many of you only see it now though.
