Arsène Wenger

Ronaldo is a lil’ bitch. He will extend his contract in the end. Bale still doesn’t speak Spanish it is said. That is as much on him than anything else.
That’s the point. If they lose players they already have very good replacements in place bar for Benzema and Marcelo.

If anything Real seem more stable than they have ever been. Every move they made the past 3-4 years made sense. Ancelotti took La Decima pressure away four years ago. That job isn’t that bad at all. Barcelona better lol @ImmoralGunner.

Would love to see him with France. He would be a good fit.

Wenger doesnt have the balls? He sure showed balls agreeing a contract extension in 2017 knowing he would recieve abuse of th highest order did he not deliver. Saying Wenger doesnt have the balls to manage Madrid is just plain stupid.


#14255

Yeah well I think your face is stupid you big stupid face

But really, if you think signing that contract took balls then I don’t know what to say to you.

But even if that did take balls, if you think that it somehow proves anything about whether he’d take the Madrid job or not then I think it’s you who is pretty stupid. The two situations aren’t remotely comparable.


#14256

This thing is so fucking overstated that it is embarrassing to think all of you are adults in late 20s or 30s.

Wenger did hold a good amount of power but the sort of shit assumptions that fans have is just stupid.


#14257

What manager anywhere in Europe had so much control of everything to do with the club?
From contracts, players fees, what they ate, tactics. training, who else has had that much power for so long?


#14258

So you think someone who’s unemployed and has a once in a life time chance to manage Real Madrid would turn it down?

Edit not once in a lifetime as he’s had the opportunity already but this time he doesn’t really have anything to lose.


#14259

Exhibit A

How do you know Wenger dictated the transfer price?


#14260

Fergie and probably plenty of managers tbf. And pretending Wenger was the sole person in charge of player fees is wrong, he wasn’t.


#14261

Apart from losing in the Super Cup at the start of the season to Real Madrid. Barcelona nearly went undefeated in the league and they ended up finishing 17 points ahead of Real Madrid. Sure they are better.

@InvincibleDB10 - dude not again. Ronaldo, Bale, Benzema, Modric, Kroos, Marcelo, Ramos, Isco, Rodriguez, Pepe in the last three seasons.

Majority bought with big money at the time. What do we have to compare?


#14262

I’d love him to join Real Madrid, if he can’t win the CL with a team that’s won 3 in a row and 4 in 5 years it will prove what a failure he is in European Competitions even more so.


#14263

Image if Wenger went to Real and won the Champions League in his first year with them :rofl:.

Apart from joke, i would be so curious to see him there, with more financial power at his disposal.


#14264

If you dont think Wenger has balls fine. But he will clearly want the Madrid job and take it if offered. I can see him being a success at Madrid. His style suits a big club with elite players, who needs the extra freedom to express their huge talent.


#14265

Wenger’s style is the art of fighting without fighting.

It’s dated


#14266

A manager conceding ten goals to Bayern and 8 to Barca isnt get anywhere the champions of europe job.


#14267

Unless he is a liar, which I’m sure your hero isn’t, he often said the words, after almost every unsuccessful transfer window, “the player didn’t meet with our valuation.”


#14268

The sentence says ‘our’


#14269

Wenger is the one who makes the decision who we buy, so I’m assuming he also knows that players valuation.
How would Gazidis or Kroenke know what a player is worth?

It’s also true that Wenger was the person who made the decisions about players wages, so presumably that would indicate he also made the decisions about what players to buy, and how much we should pay for them.

The fact is, what ever you say, Wenger had more control, for longer, than any other manager in European football and he was responsible for almost every aspect of the running of the club, so when things went wrong, it was down to him.

I wonder how Wenger must feel after 22 years at one of the worlds greatest clubs , knowing he doesn’t have to go to Colney or The Emirates .
22 years is a long time in any employment but more so being in the spotlight , day in day out , having to deal with egos , multimillion pound players , hangers on but worstly the media .
The more Wenger , the man is thought about the greater he becomes .
I sincerely hope the board and the major shareholders honour AW , with the way he honoured
Arsenal Football Club .
