'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Ex-Gunner Slams Wenger

It seems to me, that Ex-Gooner, Edu, is feeling a bit of resentment towards the club, possibly due to the fact he isn't playing football because of his injury.

Edu, I believe, is ruled out for the season at Valencia due to a long term knee injury, and maybe he feels none of this would have happened, had Arsene kept him on.

The brazilian took a swipe at Wenger's transfers and policies, saying, 'I am not surprised by what has been happening to Arsenal this season.

'The club is paying for its mistakes. Neither Patrick Vieira nor myself should have left - one of us could have stayed.

'They have struggled in midfield and I believe they should have brought in more experienced players.

'I have a lot of respect for the kids who are now playing there, but it seems to me that relying upon two 18-year-olds wasn't the best choice.

'These young players will be flying in three or four years, but now it seems the entire squad has suffered.

'It's a bit of a shock to see Arsenal in sixth place, and behind Tottenham. We used to be ahead of them - and Liverpool - all the time.'

Had Edu not held the club to ransom requesting a whopping 70 grand a week, he may still have been playing for Arsenal.

Bill gates has less money than Abramovich, he is worth about 50BILLION dollars but that is not his wealth! if he sold Microsoft and his 49% share in apple then he would be richer!
