Why’s Willian being focused on at this point of the season?

The likes of me and @GDeep™ knew he was a washed up *** from early doors whilst cucks like @HairSprayGooners were praising the signing, it was if we signed a prime Kaka the way some were acting.

I remember a lot fans on here and Twitter were thinking that Arteta was going to unlock some hidden potential in Willian at the age of 32 and play him in the number 10 role.

:lol::lol:

You cant have known he was a washed up *** based on his last season. I mean if you did then it shows how terrible your football knowledge is.

If I was Arteta, I probably would have signed Willian on a free too tbh...depending on his wage.

Willian was pretty good for Chelsea last season, that player would have been a fine player to have in the squad...a squad that at the time didn't have Ødegaard, was trying to get Özil to leave and had ESR/Gabby injured for quite a while.

The issue was how many matches he started, after Fulham he was poor for what felt like a whole season before Arteta dropped him, that's where Mikel ****ed up.

He’s not free though. You pay a sign on fee, you pay a wage and you give a 3 year contract. That’s a massive outlay for a washed up player, from a club with financial issues.

The only positive here is that Arteta and Edu will now be reluctant to sign old trash again from rival clubs looking for a retirement home.

Nobody is complaining so much about the free transfer. Its the number of years we have to pay him a guaranteed salary way above the salary a squad player should get.

Plus as I said above. The club that makes you the household name. The club you spent something like 7 years with. The club you had the best season ever supposedly with the year before. The club that is signing top players and playing in the CL and really wants to kick on with you part of the project offers you a 2 year deal and you give all that up to sign for a rival who is mid table going nowhere fast and playing Thursday night football for 1 extra years contract. If I'm Arteta and Arsenal that tells me all I need to know about the man.

polarizing manager but like it or not he's here to stay for awhile , the dynasty is on its way brace yourselves lads
He won't be here to stay if he gets dumped out by Emery and finishes 10th. He may unjustifiably get another few months next season but I dare say unless he is sitting pretty in the top 4/5 next season from the get go he will be given his marching orders.

This is an Arsenal project. Not an Arteta project. And if the coach isn't helping to progress that project by getting wins then the project is destined for failure.

I didn't say people were complaining about the free transfer, I said this is what I would have done.

Play for Don Arteta, or play for Fat Frank...easy choice, imo!

But that was "depending on his wage".

You are telling me that if you were in charge at Arsenal you offer Willian the equivalent of 200k a week for 3 years?

Willian is not at Arsenal for Arteta. He's there for the money and the financial rewards. I could ask my dog why Willian rejects a 2 year deal at Chelsea and signs a 3 year deal with us and it would bark the right answer fs.

Does that not tell you something about his character?

It's ok to acknowledge mistakes as mistakes. They happen.

If Willian said to me "200k and not a penny less!" , I would have replied with a Jim Cornette style "Thank you, **** you, bye!"

Never would have signed him for that :lol:

Didn't really mind him rejecting Chelsea for us though.

Massive mistake by the club, hate that **** now...everytime he plays for us I want to throw something at my tv!

But if I was manager of Arsenal and Willian said he wanted to sign for us (on a acceptable wage) I would have done it too, that was my point...if he really is on 200k a week, I hope it's being taken out of Arteta's and Edu's salary ffs :lol:

And you weren't suspicious of why he'd do that? If i was a footballer with real ambition still left in me, i wouldn't turn down Chelsea for us even under Lampard. In fact i wouldn't turn down the Chelsea flower show for Arsenal, ffs.
