Arsene, It's Time To Get A Move On

Arsene, It's Time To Get A Move On

Two weeks to go until our pre-season games start and still no signings of note.

As Man Utd refuse to rest on their laurels they`ve gone out and sorted their new players early as they attempt to build on yet another title winning season whilst the Gunners seem content with doing absolutely f**k all.

Of course it probably isn`t that way, it just feels like it, no doubt Gazidis is running round like Jerry Maguire trying to snaffle a few deals. It`s just it feels like we`re waiting too long you know, we`ve been here before, pissing about trying to save a few quid only to lose out on players Wenger clearly thought would improve our chances of winning silverware because of his stubborn philosophy.

Wenger, for me, is still the man for the job, nobody could run our club like he can, but he`s playing a risky game by not getting (as an old friend of mine likes to say) "all his sh*t in one sock" as quickly as possible.

Our start to the season is compiled of matches against Newcastle (We all know we can`t take that game lightly), Man Utd and Liverpool along with 2 Champions League qualifiers that we now have to play thanks to our pathetic end of season effort.

If the season starts badly without getting our players sorted out before the close of the transfer window, then that air of discontent that may have been diluted somewhat by a summer of beer and bar-b-ques, will be back in force, and I fear for what may happen if the majority of fans turn on Le Boss.

this is another blog to be avoided. Well sone for chatting *****e mate. The window is hardly ajar and you are off on one. United? Have signed replacements and potential, vastly over priced potential at that. Could you imagine the outcry if we had done the same? Get a grip, you're embarrassing yourself. Oh and the choice of photo? Yep, pure tabloid *****ishness.

Rocky has mentioned that we need to get a move on, not that we are doomed Mangoonian. I'm positive that post July 1st, we will get a move on.

It's to be avoided yet you sign up and post? That makes sense! If you'd bothered to read properly there's no outcry or wailing and gnashing of teeth, simply that we're close to the start of preparing for a new season and with the massively tough start to the season we need to get things sorted. If you can offer me some proof that our previous strategies of waiting till ten minutes before the window closes has worked for us in the past then I'll gladly retract my statement .... I'll just be waiting over here.

Embarrassing yourself is going onto somebody else's article and ripping them to bits. Poor effort. Comment with something constructive or don't bother commenting at all. Good piece Rocky

Mangoonian, can I imagine the outcry if we did the same as utd and overpay to safely land the players they have earmarked early in the window with zero dithering? with no endless haggling like mean old gypsies quibbling over the 13th place prize cabbage at the Cordoba cabbage carnival? No...no I can't, I can't imagine the outcry because I can't imagine the scenario happening to cause the outcry, y'get me blud?

If we had spent 16m on Jones I would think it was odd but I'd go with it...just as I went with it when we bought Henry, Viera. If we had spent 16m on Young I would be jumping up and down saying Arsene does listen to me!! And if we were linked with an 18m young keeper who is highly rated I would think we have a few young keepers but would expect the deal to go through rather than be linked with everyone and end up with TV & Fimprong who are like new signings anyway.

United have done business but they've replaced what they're losing. Scholes, Neville and VDS have all retired and they've been repalced with potential and a rough diamond in Young. Probably not bad signings in the long term, but they'd be hard pushed to gel straight away. United have put in what they've lost.

That's something we've failed to do in recent seasons I think and we're still playing catch up. Plus United have all their main pieces in place and need a little tweaking here and there, we need a couple of big pieces to make sure we can challenge.
