What a surprise the best team in the country is the team that spent the most money yet some fans say money has nothing to do with it! Arranging my weekends around football now is in the past when football was about football and NOT about money. I enjoyed those weekends but now it's about family at weekends, R.I.P proper football and scouting days!

Its not all about money mate, it's how you spend it than have a style of play that suit's the players you have bought.

We spent £40m on Mustafi, he's bang average.
£40m on Xhaka, he's bang average.
£42m on Ozil. How did he play?
£50m on Auba, and we can't even get the ball to him.

Remind me, how much did Wigan cost?

We could have the most expensively assembled team in world football, but when you play with no passion, no fight, no spirit, no commitment and no idea, you win nothing.

It's not just about money.

I wonder if Palce Southampton Watford were all feeling that way when we broke the record for Super Mac or paid Free agent Sol Campbell unheard of wages to join us?
Sour grapes and excuses,
Luckily for Mrs Branson and Mrs Sugar their husbands didn't see those who already had millions as unmovable obstacles they simply found a way of making billions without a silver spoon start in life.
Those who can't complain and make excuses for themselves while those who can find a way.

good post Dags.

25 Feb 2018 19:34:25
Cheers NES.

I am on the same page as you with the money - see my posts below.

However, we should be better than we are. More organised, more bite, more dominance in midfield and a shred of menace going forward. We were useless and it’s nothing new. We are slowly dissolving like sugar in hot tea, we are unrecognisable when compared to the invincibles or other decent teams Wenger has put out.

I am tired of being caught out by a stupid ball over the top - how naive are we?

I am tired of teams running through our midfield

I am tired of the team panicking when they defend as if they are being attacked for the first time. They are bloody professionals and have all the resources we can afford to get them defending

I am tired of us not even being able to attack - something we are meant to be good at.

We need to have a serious think as a club to determine what we are prepared to pu5 up with and what we will do to achieve success. Sent me thing just isn’t right

Get rid of - chambers, Xhaka, Elneny, Cech, Mustafi, Bellerin, Welbeck, Santi,

Replacements soon for - Nacho, Kos, Per,

Put Iwobi out on loan

Let’s start again - happy to call next season a write off if we build the foundations right.

{Ed025's Note - a sad but fair reflection that SY, kudos mate..

25 Feb 2018 19:54:21
We do need to start again SY and writing next season and maybe the one after off might be a price we have to pay to sort ourselves out from virtually from scratch.
Whether people like it or not we can't even begin to move forward until we thank and part company with Arsene, I think deep down everyone knows Arsene will never again be able to make us competitive over 38 games it's just that some people find it hard to actually admit it to themselves.

Bod you need to stop whining it’s embarrassing.

25 Feb 2018 20:38:24
odders. Owned. 😉.

25 Feb 2018 20:15:50
Dags I’m not talking about one game, last years winners Russian oil money, this years winners will be Middle East oil money, look at the bigger picture, unless you have oil money how can you get a big enough squad over the course of a season who would sit on the bench because they are getting paid stupid money? The last 5 years oil money clubs have won it in four times, or are you saying it’s only coincidence that oil money clubs have won the league the most times over the last 10 years!

25 Feb 2018 20:50:46
Owned? How?

25 Feb 2018 20:51:37
Sagongo I’m not whining at all just talking facts.

25 Feb 2018 20:57:36
NES so you believe whatever sanogo writes is right then?

25 Feb 2018 21:15:47
No odders, I just agree with what he posted, 'stop whining'. that doesn't constitute me believing whatever he writes is right.

'stop whining' 😉 🔔 nd.

we are currently exactly like man u, we have no identity! you can play well and lose, you can play shite and lose, as long as you know what your team identity is and play to it, ( like stoke for example) we have no identity, loads of instagram and snap chat posts but know team identity, , its the one thing klopp has given liverpool ( don't think they will ever win any thing) but at least you know what your getting when you watch them.

25 Feb 2018 21:35:12
Gunnerbod, I agree with what you say, you are correct.

But, look at the players we have bought, the price tag, the system we play and the fact our players don't turn up time and time again.

Are we not one of the richest clubs in world football?

The difference is, the owners of Man City financially back the manager, and the manager is willing to spend the money to win things.

Wenger on average, buys one big signing every window, but offsets that by selling about 4/ 5 players.

We are probably the only "big" team in football who makes a profit every transfer window.

25 Feb 2018 22:08:56
Dags stop bulling xhaka up, he's not as good as you stated.

25 Feb 2018 22:59:07
We do spend money but it seems very badly. We spent £55m on Lacazette and then what, barely a year later spend even more on a player who plays in exactly the same position, so we're are going to end up with a £55m sub sitting on the bench when we have major deficiencies elsewhere. A player like Mahrez would have been a much better signing, giving the team more width and balance.

25 Feb 2018 23:55:57
NES, the last 10 years oil owned clubs have won the title the most times, 4 times in the last 5 years but apparently has nothing to do with money.

26 Feb 2018 01:38:06
Heart costs nothing.

26 Feb 2018 01:54:47
Xhaka bang average?
He is far worse than that.

26 Feb 2018 06:54:18
Abramovich money is not oil money.

26 Feb 2018 14:26:16
It’s Oil products money, sanogo.
