Morning all, Wenger says no to England and Vardy also says no to Arsenal. This has happened just before the Final of the Euro’s. Now that the transfer window is about to begin again, why buy top class players when they may be out for a season injured. Of course the world have been looking at the Euro’s Managers from around the world, looking to improve their squads, just as we are in England.
I believe we have been lucky to keep Mr Wenger, as top Managers are hard to come by, many supporters will feel different but that is the way of the world. At this present time, i feel that to actually choose a Manager and then get them to come, would be too great a risk, Naturally Mr Wenger’s current contract ends at the end of next season, so if he does intend to leave, he will naturally want what is best for Arsenal, after all he has always done what he feels has been the most helpful for the club.
Transfer news has been thin on the ground just recently, but many Managers would have pencilled in names they would like, Judging by the names I keep seeing come up who have been linked to us, we are probably the same. Granit Zhaka one we did sign before the Euro’s has come through unscathed and he should be ready to start our season off. Aaron Ramsey of course written off by many Gooners last season, has become a Welsh hero and all dues to him he found the form he had lost with us and i feel he performed well. Jack Wilshere never had such a good tournament but in the glimpses i saw of him he seemed fit and ready for Premier League, some of our players have succeeded to the final, and in all honesty if they kept their place to the final they can certainly do a job for us.
Because we never won the premier league last season, many supporters seem to feel we need to off load many players and bring in superstars, i had those feelings at the end but this competition has been a learning curve, not many of the so called superstars have been much better and with the experience gained can only make our players that much better.
Last season was our German contingent they made the final, this time its the French , hopefully it ends in our boys favour, of course we can always bring new guys in, clubs should and Wenger has started with a young Italian, i don’t think he is finished yet. Finishing second last season and being top of the clubs who were tipped to take the honour we still did well ,and it was a step up from past seasons, In fact if we felt we have problems what about the other so called top clubs.
Do we have problems, well of course we have, Chamberlain and Walcott both who had abysmal seasons, both who were not even included or thought of to play for their countries, now that has shown that they need to do a dam sight more for their club, and lets face it they certainly need too, hopefully their form and their fitness will improve and both get into the positions to get into the side.
Looking at this years Euros, I have seen many of our players past and present playing for their respected countries, it was at this time that I realised that Mr Wenger has done plenty for world football, enough to be asked to Manage the country he has worked in for the last 20 odd years, but still he stays at Arsenal not even thinking about it, Arsenal is where he wants to be and Arsenal will be the place in my mind that he’ll finish, i have moaned at this man and now i feel ashamed, i know i will moan at some point in the new season, but i am glad he is still here, They said that Cameron was an honourable man in my book he can not hold a candle to our man Arsene.
