Wenger's one of the few managers that you'd really like to sit down with and have a conversation totally unrelated to football with.
He's got to be one of the most interesting football personalities of the past 25 years.
He's an all-time great football person, not just the last 25 years, just in general, up there with the best of them, and this piece of sh*t club hasn't so much as invited him back since he left, it should be naming it's stadium after him for christ sake.
I would name the stadium after him, nice touch given how much he helped in the transition from Highbury. Apparently the banks were only willing to give loans if they got a guarantee Wenger would be around.
Kroenke is about business though and naming the stadium after Wenger means one less revenue stream as it rules out cash from naming rights.
Other issue, Wenger and Stan seem like strangers by all accounts, I’m not sure there is a desire at the club to honour Wenger atm. They’ll do it when the worst happens, make statues etc, but what’s the point then.
I like the quote about the beautiful woman. Someone needs to remind our players that they can play and that we are an actual football club.
Robotic and workmanlike can produce results but we're not even getting them. The artists are there, bur it takes certain owners and managers to allow them a stage.Yes, this dour stuff isn't Arsenal. In fact football on a whole is becoming so robotic and workmanlike. Where are the artists?
Miss Henry too recently for some reason. Great player but miss having a player who cared as much as he did for the shirt and club.
I love the man to death but to me there was definitely a bit of theatre to his love for the club.
In fact you could probably count the number of players who truly care for the club in the past 30 years on one hand with a finger left over and some of them aren't even English.
If you want to count the number of players that care about and love Arsène then you will need to throw in a few extra feet, not just toes.
I didn’t even know he responded to Deeney’s comment tbh. He still should have gone in hard about Deeneys’ butters chops though. I’d liked to have seen him hunch right over and mumble ‘Ze Cajones!’. Would have gone out with a huge bang.You couldn’t have said this three and a half years ago?
