Dear Mr Arsene Wenger
I have really, really enjoyed the splendid football you have managed to spoil us Gooners with, not just inside two different stadiums, but also us here glued to our tellies from around the world. You are a proven master of your craft. You crank out a production line of ‘hidden gems’ of players, and have changed the face of the English game forever.
It is here that I must interject, however. Because frankly, I’m fed up with you.
The fact that you have taken so long to sign Samir Nasri, is frankly, a disgrace. We should be paying TOP DOLLAR, whatever the player SMEGGING WANTS so we can sign a player we have, admittedly, only seen on Youtube and, admittedly, only have the papers at their word, to believe.
YOU HAVE FAILED TO DO SO WENGER. STRIKE ONE.
I know he has never played a game for Arsenal. I know he’s only 20-something. But surely players of his CALIBRE (read, hype) deserve EVERY PENNY WE CAN THROW AT HIM? NO????
This is a gruff subject, and frankly, I’m sick of hearing about all this AC Milan and Barcelona banter. For TOO LONG have Arsenal appeared as a selling club. Coincidently, FOR TOO LONG have Arsenal had to put up WITH SECOND BEST. 30 goals in a season? NOT GOOD ENOUGH. A striker who can lead the line on his own, for a whole season, at the age of 23 (!!!!), and GETS TIRED NEAR THE END OF THE SEASON COMPLETELY UNEXPECTEDLY? Not good enough.
He ‘reportedly’ wants £80,000 a week from us. This is coming from a player who KNOWS THE RIGOURS OF THE PREMIER LEAGUE. A player who has scored ONLY THIRTY GOALS FOR US. Frankly, it’s not good enough. We are Arsenal. We expect only the best (but come on Nasri, you’ve yet to adapt to the Premier League, but we’ll pay top dollar for you…)
It is time we proved we are not a selling club. So please, Mr Wenger. Sell Adebayor this very instant.
And buy this guy.
Disclaimer: Wenger is the man who discovered George Weah.
Disclaimer: I will only believe a transfer is done once it is officially confirmed.
Oh, another disclaimer: Adebayor could go. But then, he could not. (How mysterious!)
Yet another disclaimer: Nasri is quite decent, I’ll admit.
Last, but not least: Voronin is a painter.
