I understand the frustration of fans over the lack of quality signings, I am frustrated also given that this squad is just two quality players away from genuine contenders. What happens if and when Arteta is not available, what happens if Giroud gets injured or is out of form? We needed to sign a defensive midfielder and another attacker to complement what we already have, but AW and the board bottled it like always. You just have to look at Walcott's situation to undersand the level of ineptitude we are dealing with. AW has become so comfortable in his position that as long as he makes money for the board, he fels nothing else matters. I think the fans must be directing their anger at Wenger because i believe the board are following his lead when it comes to signings. AW is the highest paid manager in the EPL,higher than even Sir Alex, and yet he gets away with 4th place finish whle selling off the clubs best assets every year to maybe justify his huge salary. Many fans are worried and for good reason. The club has lowered its ambitions so much that the mention of silvrware seems so utopian to them.

Wenger and the Arsenal board are insensitive to what the Arsenal fans all over the world face each year. Competing in the Champions League has become a yardstick in the Arsenal quarters to measure success whereas other teams are winning silverwares. Arsenal FC has gone without a trophy for seven years and Arsene Wenger is not rather perturbed about it. He has chosen to make Arsenal the grooming ground for other teams in Europe to poach talents and taken to making money for Arsenal than silverwares. Wenger has lost vision of any glorious achievable part in transforming the Arsenal FC into a team hungry for silverwares. He is an old man with a pure business interest (to make money only). Particularly in this part of Africa (Nigeria), Arsene Wenger and his board has infected the die hard Arsenal fans with hypertension. Who knows the resultant effect to these individuals in years to come? It is time we have a change in the board or change in the coaching crew to fashion out an achievable pathway towards transforming the Arsenal FC as a Football Club ambitious for silverwares. Arsenal must not go this season without silverware even though it is Carling Cup. After all, Arsenal is a rich club.

AW is an idiot, do we always need to want to finish 4th or 3rd position always?? Gosh I hate this Club right now.. For real Arsnal Su*ks.... I hope they got what they wanted all along just wanted to sweet talk us off to the end of the Transfer window and they got that done!!! Seems like that's the only thing they know how to do best lie to the FANs of the Club. This is Heart Attacking Club. If you want to Die ontimely Death then you follow arsenal.. I support the motion that says we need to go out there to stop all this Wicked Board member and AW's tricks of always wanting to fill their own piggy Bank.. Like he said (AW) they are paid to do the right thing for the Club.. Yes he got that done.. A well done JOB to keep on breaking we fans Heart.. But this most stop we need to go out there in proxy to show them we ain't fools we have options we don't want them no more.. We have the right to the club cause they are there to serve Arsnal FC cause we say so! We need to come as 1 go out there to protest! We will stop watching their damn MATCH start looking for a way they won't gain and have money put in their piggy Bank, they have strategy of making money let's make set a strategy for them not to make money too! They always still there each year just because they are making money year in year out... So we need to look for a way to make that stop.. We have the right to choose what happens at Arsenal FC.

Those considering a ticket boycott, PLEASE THINK ABOUT THE CONSEQUENCES OF THAT!
We need to get behind the team, now more than ever, support the boys & BOYCOTT THE MERCHANDISE!

F*cking same old story, proven talent goes out the door (Talent that has taken years to develop) and a group of new players come in expected to perform to the same level straight away.
Fans are left feeling completely mugged off.
The club makes more profit.
The fans are asked to pay the highest prices in football for the privilege of making the board richer and squad weaker.

Step back for a second and think people. Our squad is actually equal to if not better than last season. Yes, I’m disappointed we lost a couple of top players but we replaced them like for like. Who would you rather(you can’t have both) Cazorla, Spanish 3rd choice midfielder behind the two best midfielders in the world or Song( who I like)? RvP or the French top scorer AND a german international with 100 caps? It’s not doom and gloom. Remember also that the players we have from last year are now a year more experienced. Have you seen our defence this year? We look fking solid! I know it’s a cliche but we have diaby and Wilshire back too. New signings anyone?
I honestly believe that we are stronger, wiser and less reliant on individuals. I love Arsenal. I trust Wenger because he has never let me down. Yes I want trophies now but I also want my club to exist in 10 years.
Finally all I can say is that when the manager leaves (2014/15) and a new manager comes in, we finish 8th with a new boring style of football and we end up like Looserpool, you will all be back here saying how much you wished we played CL every year like when Arsene was in charge. I hope I’m wrong. COYG till I die.
