More evidence Wenger about to splash out
April 27, 2010
The annual Q&A Wenger has with the supporters at the end of the season has been postponed till August this year.
Although Ivan Gazidis will be fronting a Q&A with the Arsenal Supporters Trust, to be held at the Emirates next month.
Last year, the now infamous session hosted by Bob Wilson descended into a little chaos with certain sections of the crowd displaying their frustrations a little too over zealously.
So what does this shift from May till August tell us about Arsène’s intentions this coming summer?
Well it tells me he has a firm idea that he will have bought in some big money players before his Q&A.
The following quotes from Wenger, given in last weekends programme notes ahead of the City game may also tell us his spending will come to an end by June 11th.
“What I can say is that the World Cup will not affect our recruitment, unless there is an exception that nobody could foretell.
“In my view it is dangerous to buy on the back of a World Cup – for one thing the prices afterwards are always artificial, and for another you have to bear in mind that anyone can have three weeks of glory on a football field.
“All told, I believe that the earlier you settle your teams for the next season, the better it is and the less anxiety you have.”
Let’s be honest, most fans are not smart enough to judge true growth of a club, all they really want to see is some money splashed out on a plethora of new signings.
I feel Wenger has no tolerance for these type of inferior fans, as I also don’t, and would prefer to answer a few more intelligently presented questions this year.
With 30-40M spent before he faces the fans in August… he will certainly find a different slant to the questions posed!
