To Wenger, this week especially must rank as one of his worst in his career as a Manager.Two of his best players had just departed and his club was facing imminent exit from the champions league for teh first time at qualifying stage. Add to that the spate of injuries to what remains of his first team and you will understand his predicament.
We have all blamed Wenger for what Arsenal is passing through now pricipally because he has refused to buy big and more importantly because he had stuck to a policy that has failed in mordern football. But the cry over the departure of Captain Fabregas and midfielder Nasiri seemed over blown to me.No doubt the two are great players who will be badly missed in Arsenal but that is as far as that goes. The difference between Arsenal and most clubs is that Arsenal makes players not the other way round. Players who were nobodies come to Arsenal nad become over night stars. And when they leave Arsenal, you hardly will hear about them again. Some examples; Hleb, Flamini, Reyes, Adebayor,Thiery?, etc. I hope Fabregas does not become a bench warmer at Barcelona, that will be bad for global footballer. For Nasiri,I think Barcelona could have been the place for his game.But money speaks and b…….Arsenal will do well with some sensible signing by the Manager. But should Wenger think that because the team qualified for the group stage of champions league, all is now well, then certainly, he has past his prime.
