Its great in this day and age that a football club as big as Arsenal is run sensibly amid all the uncertainty of having a billionaire owner who really doesn't give two shits about the club.
However, what isn't so great is that we Gooners are forever being fed untruths by our club and even more disappointingly, our own manager.
What is going on at Arsenal? People keep on contradicting themselves at the club. One moment we are being told there is no money to spend, the next we are told there is.
Saying this, at the back of my mind I'm hoping that all this talk of having no money is just a bluffer. The transfer market is very over-inflated at the moment and maybe it is a ploy by the club to try to keep prices for any transfer targets down.
Whatever the case, we need to qualify for the Champions League. We Gooners want to see Arsenal play in the Premier European tournament and the board need the money that comes with it.
Bearing in mind how much Arsenal money stand to lose if qualification for the Champions League is not achieved then I'd argue it would be worth spending some money now to help make sure we do.
It would be a disaster for Arsenal if we didn't qualify for the Champions League. We seem to be selling players every year regardless of qualification, we would probably have to sell the whole squad if we didn't!
Another worrying aspect the club need to consider is the fact that Gooners pay a huge amount of money to watch the club. Things are very tight in the current financial climate and it is hard to afford these prices.
Will Gooners still pay the asking price if Arsenal are in the UEFA Cup? I don't think they will and who could blame them?
I think that Arsenal could buy better and more experienced players than what we have and it wouldn't cost a fortune. Every club is suffering financially. Take advantage of it.
Keep it Goonerish............
