"Wenger strikes something of a lonely figure at the moment, with having little support from the board,"
He has little support from the board yet they give him a new contract.
"Arsenal are not incompetent however. They are far from it. However, their dealings off the field can be laughable at times. Arsenal’s scouting operation(s) are not thought of very highly, anywhere in the world, their negotiation tactics are not highly regarded and their late decisions and dilly-dallying mean that signing people late was almost certainly impossible."
There are several examples of Wenger’s dithering in this article but this paragraph illustrates why we are so useless in the transfer market.
"Wenger is incredibly hurt when Arsenal lose and as an Arsenal supporter, he was worried that his contract last season was the main reason for fan devision and is incredibly worried about the Arsenal fans this season too."
So worried that his dithering meant we go into yet another season underprepared and with gaping holes in the first team and our best players leaving.
"In fact, they have pulled out of transfers such as the signing of N’Golo Kanté, as his agent was demanded a higher fee and Arsenal felt that this could leave the transfer open to investigation, so they pulled out. Arsenal do things by the book, perhaps too by the book."
This is laughable for a top European club.
We are a joke in the transfer market.
"Arsenal are looking at clubs like Atlético Madrid and Leicester City as great examples of how to run a football club and still achieve. Wenger personally does not like the comparisons between the two clubs, however, he does see how the clubs have done well. The board are far more fixated on the other clubs."
This is the biggest joke.
We move from Highbury to the Emirates for more than ten seasons of scrimping and haggling to model ourselves on Leicester.
