Yes but they were bought for twice the price of Wenger’s players. And just saying they were a bunch of clowns doesn’t make it so. RVP at their head was far from a clown and a golden boot winner that year. Players like Jonny Evans may have been moved on but at every club he’s been a top professional and one of their best players. DeGea was a massive upgrade for them. Kagawa, Valencia, Rooney, Giggs, Evra, Hanandez were all getting on the scoresheet. More glib narrative sh*te made up at the time to put Wenger down, sorry mate.
