If it's true he said that, then it just shows his contempt he has for the supporters.
I know he is well known for spin, but that is just a ridiculous thing to say.
If contracts aren't that important and it's an "ideal situation," then why does he give so many average players massive contracts and then we can't get rid of them?
Again it illustrates his contempt and arrogance.
Does he think supporters just forget all the nonsense he comes out with.
Yet it still keeps happening.
Your right, the squad does need an overhaul, or at least a few changes with some top quality players coming in and the regular under performers leaving.
It's almost as if in every transfer window, Wenger hasn't got a clue what he wants.
I was convinced after the debacle of him signing a new contract, Wenger would actually change his transfer strategy and get all the business done before the start of the season, and all he is done is what he always does, which is the bare minimum.
This window is the same shambolic one we see every season, and people still believe he knows what he's doing.
