Le Boss has never been the type to sign big names. Never has been, never will be.
Our guvnor is one stubborn Frenchman and I cannot for the life of me, see him ever changing the way that he add's to the squad.
He doesn't sign ready made shiny diamonds, he takes the rough ones and makes the rough diamonds shine.
And that will never change.
No matter how much we cry out for a superstar, Wenger will not hear our pleas.
He has our clubs future at heart and I thank him for that.
BUT, when a player like David Villa states that he wants to join your club then that is the time to break the habit of a life time.
Wenger has stated that it's not about the name, it's the talent. Well, there aren't many more talented out there than David Villa.
He has both. The name and the talent.
What could be a better way to please us and Wenger?
We get a big name, Le Boss get's his talent.
It's not all about how much money we spend.
I don't want to become like the Chavs and spend a fortune on shit like Shevchenko.
All I want is players like Villa to be signed because they will make Arsenal a better side.
I admit a big signing for big money gets the pulse racing, and believe me when Villa said he wanted to join Arsenal my pulse was racing!
But it aint about that. The big money gets you excited, but doesn't guarantee success.
So I agree with Wenger that big money signings isn't always the way.
BUT, sometimes to sign talent, like Wenger says we need, you have to spend BIG money on BIG names to get BIG talent.
Keep it Goonerish...........
