It’s true that other clubs have paid world class prices for players that aren’t that quality but so have we.
We also pay world class wages to average players but worse than that we give them new contracts.
I know we bought Ozil and Sanchez but apart from those two, who were basically at bargain prices because no other bidders came in, Wenger hasn’t bought a world class player even though he could afford it.
It’s no good Wenger coming out with the well worn excuse of players “not meeting with his valuation” because all he has achieved with that ridiculous is excuse is the only top quality players he has wanting to leave.
If we had bought players like Lemar to play alongside Ozil and Sanchez, rather than replacing them, they might have stayed but it’s because of his lack of investment and perceived lack of ambition which has seen us drop out of the CL, and consequently they want to leave.
I agree with this.
The only difference between us and spurs is that Pochettino is possibly the best manager in the PL and maybe Europe.
Their players earn a lot less than ours, and they have a lot less money than we do, yet they have overtaken us because he is a better manager than Wenger.
