It is testament to Arsène Wenger that we got so wound up over a player leaving the club. He has created such a close knit group, and raised the standards and demands of players which were already high. We as fans are so used to committed players who command long careers here (Adams, Bould, Winterburn, Dixon, Seaman, Keown, O Leary etc) that when a big player cuts his career short with us - we are not used to handling it. We adamently wanted to hold on to Anelka. We nearly faced the prospect of Ian Wright leaving... and if he did - imagine the uproar. We We don't have to be as open minded with players leaving because... Now, we are a club who fulfulls players ambitions entirely. Wenger brings attributes out of them, and nurtures them within the comfort and security of our group - of which they are scared to leave. Vieira, Pires, and Henry do not want to burst the bubble Arsène has polished for them.
