I think you really need to look deep before making these superficial comments. I'll cover two issues:
- First, Arsenal is foremost a FOOTBALL club. None of us football fans in this forum is here to support a business transaction. Everybody is here because they love Football. The point of contemplation with Arsenal has never been about not winning trophies. The major point is the inability to challenge for trophies and finishing 20 points behind the top-2 teams in England presently. That's what Gunners don't want. Nobody wants a marquee 50 million signing at Arsenal. They just want to see one or two players added and strengthened. If we had signed a proper CB in January 2010, we would have been PL champions that year. We wouldn't have been raped by Barcelona at Camp Nou. That is the frustrating part. Spending money is stupidity; knowing when to spend money and how to spend money is business. Point.
- Secondly, Football is a simple game. It's very simple. It's so simple that it has 22 players and 1 ball and the main objective is to put the ball back into the net. It's not Quantum Physics.
A lot of people seem to forget that we were the second-most successful club in English Football at the start of the PL era. You can only play fair on a fair-play ground. Anything otherwise suggests genuine idiocy
