Discussion in 'Arsenal Talk' started by American_Gooner, Apr 12, 2020.
Been waiting for this all year!
Yeah, if you're after more of an exposé, I think 'Both Sides' by Nicklas Bendtner might be more 'interesting'.
Amazoning its way over to me tomorrow I think. Pre-ordered back in May.
Jeff Bezos, please.
Just ship mine.
Also 2022 there'll be a documentary on him!
How do you know it was a mistake? Maybe he wanted to be an Arsenal legend?
So you hope that our new manager who has brough hope, results and trophy leaves. Who would have guessed.
I can see the unveiling of his statue being part of such a documentary
I mean it has to be. He should at least have a stand named after him as well.
The dream would be it being the Arsène Wenger Stadium, think he deserves that.
Will be heading to mobilism as soon as it's uploaded
Wenger himself said staying at one club for so long is a regret/mistake.
What “legend” anyway? He gets blamed for everything, even today, he was abused and attacked for many years, planes were hired to put pressure on him, he even said he would’ve liked a job at Arsenal but nothing has ever been offered. If anything, most fans don’t want him back at the club. What sort of legend status is that?
Even if you go along with what you’re saying, which I don’t, this still goes beyond the manager, one man. This is still on the people running the club to fix.
Looking forward to readi g this at Christmas.
Nice reception but I can't be the only one confused why this event is going ahead with a crowd can I?
Socially distanced crowd:
Ah right. Still seems a bit of a shambles that they can socially distance a crowd indoors for chat about football but can't socially distance a crowd outdoors to watch a game of football.
Doesn't sound like what you say in this below article. And fans not wanting him back has nothing to do with his legend status.
If people wanted him out at that time, it also has nothing to do with his legend status. And you sound like you believe that a few noisy AM critics is the majority of the fan base.
He himself stated in this article that the criticism started when Leicester won in 2016. Two years is hardly how you paint it with "for many years" when he was 22 years at the club.
"The critics started in 2016, when we finished second in the league, because we didn’t win the championship."
"Were you ever approached to manage the English national team and, if so, why did you turn it down?
Gavin Stamp, Kingston upon Thames
Many times I was approached to coach the English national team. I turned it down for two reasons. Because I felt that, first of all, it’s better an English guy does it. And secondly, because I was happy where I was. I was at a club where I loved to do what I did.
Bayern, Juventus, Barcelona… so many clubs approached me. And today, I’m proud of how I led my life. I served this club through the delicate period to pay the stadium back. It was not only about winning the championship, but guiding the club through a very sensitive time and going completely to the end of it. And that’s what I tried to do. Afterwards people said: “You stayed too long.” Maybe, but [laughs] it’s not the way I felt!"
That final quote is touching on what I’m saying, you sacrifice your career for the Arsenal project, turn down better jobs, easier jobs, stay right through the stadium change where there were difficulties, and at the end of it, people say “you stayed too long”.
