Let me get this straight.
So Alex Ferguson sells Cristiano Ronaldo, a player who is about to hit his peak and is recognised as the best player in the world, for a massive profit, right? He is seen as a genius who made a hell of a lot of money on a player.
Arsene Wenger has sold two players to Manchester City for a massive profit too. Adebayor, a player who most Gooners were glad to see the back of, and Kolo Toure, who despite being a favourite at the club, has appeared to be on the wane over the last 12-18 months. He is seen as a donut despite making huge money on the pair.
I can't understand this!
All of the sudden people are getting on Wengers back when surely Ferguson should be a target? I've heard hardly a murmur in the media.
Nobody questions Fergie because Arsenal are the easy target.
All we hear is that Arsenal is a selling club and that Arsene Wenger has to sell because we have no money. Even Fergie himself is an expert now.
Ferguson 'knows that Arsene has no money to spend' but why isn't he bombarded with questions over his club?
It's a well-known fact that Manchester United are in deep-debt and my opinion is that Fergie has no more money to spend despite making such a big profit on the Winker.
I reckon that the Glaziers have taken the money to pay off some debt.
How come it isn't in the papers everyday?
I actually think Wenger isn't getting any credit here. He is selling two players for massive profit. Two players who are more than likely to be unavailable in the new year for a period of time due to the African nations cup. He is selling a player no longer wanted and a player who appears to be on the wane.
Yet all I hear is doom and gloom!
Listen, I get frustrated too but I believe that Arsene will buy this summer. Its just a case of getting the right available players. I'm sure Wenger is working on this.
Mark my words Arsenal will be up there challenging this season. Despite everything you read and hear in the media.
Here we have two men doing the same thing. Making a massive profit for their clubs. Yet why is Fergie, a man who sold the best player in the world, heralded as a genius? And why is Arsene Wenger supposingly damaging his club?
What is the difference?
Keep it Goonerish............
