Still Pining for Wenger
When have Arsenal ever signed top domestic players? Utd and Liverpool have always done that. We’ve brought all our British guys through the youth system or found gems like Wrighty.
Ferguson at Utd used to sign the best player in England every season. Cantona, Ferdinand, Cole, Yorke, Rooney, Keane, wanted Shearer, Vieira etc.
Didn't we sign Seaman and Bould?
Ferguson knew the key to success. All of the shouts that we could buy championship players I can agree with. We've done that with Holding and Chambers I think. Although Chambers came from Southampton.
I also think its easier to sell them off because if a player has proven he can compete at a West Ham or Aston Villa's level, those clubs are much more likely to take a punt on them.
I feel like we had very little trouble moving on Walcott for example.
