It sort of stands as conclusive proof that the FA Cup is something all of it's own. Nice to win it, but in terms of progress, it really isn't any sort of benchmark.


Its a shame the fa cup has come to that really ! it isnt much of an achievement to win it anymore.

But i think arsenals decline came about when their buying of foreign players on the cheap started to dry up.

Wenger had such good connections especially of access to quality french players until the sources started to wise up.

I know some had wengers football methods down as old and tired a few years back but for me they really didnt get the same quality players they were when he first took over and during his golden years.

Bleacherreport have wenger down as making £311 mill profit in transfer dealings for the goons during his tenure there.

He gave up on the recruitment policy when he started bringing in the likes of Podolski, he was ruthless in his belief of selling players once they hit 30 yrs old prior to this complete reversal.

He went on record saying you have to spend to compete, but his and Arsenal's decline was brought about by the emergence of Abramovich at Chelsea and furthered by City's new found wealth.

However, this is why I believe the most important title in the last 20 or more years was that of Leicester's, which proved Wenger had lost his way and his beliefs should not have been abandoned and so publicly denounced .

Yes i cant disagree that chelsea had an impact on them back in the early 2000s when the russian bought the club but not so sure about the man city emergence having the same effect though ? hadnt the rot already set in by them ?

To be honest i,m not that bothered in looking into gooner stuff too deeply but i did notice how wenger got players like bergkamp, overmars,pires, ljunberg, henry, petit,viera etc at reasonable prices and that sort of bargain recruitment went on for years before it died a death for him ! i just thought his overseas connections had dried up or just wised up to the massive profits the goons were making on these players when sold on.

Must admit i was a bit jealous that spurs werent anywhere near to getting players of the quality wenger acquired when at his peak.

It made a nice change to see what they were having to fork out for players like ozil in 2013 ! had a little snigger to myself at the time because i honestly thought real madrid had robbed them blind for the player and 7 years on they still cant get rid of him or his massive wages.

Yes, Wenger had a midas touch for a while, but Goons did all this when they were building towards their new stadium. Something they believed would elevate them into the richest club in the country due to the increased revenue. Chelsea turned up with Abramovich, then City with Oil boys and I suppose the final nail in the coffin was Levy's vision of an all singing all dancing stadium which makes theirs look like a corroigated tea hut on a building site.

I almost feel sorry for him :lmao: :lmao: :lmao: And on top of it all, he had the arrogance of Mourinho with an unlimited cheque book rubbing his nose in it.

Specialists in failure. :lmao: :lmao: :lmao:

This will give you a laugh hopefully whatever happens in todays game.

18 year old Yunus Musah who left arsenal in 2019 for valencia is blossoming nicely and apparently is expected to be a massive talent.

Unai Emery was upset when he left as he was on the verge of giving the kid his chance.

Valencia are licking their lips at the prospect of the player,s value expecting to reach 100 mill in the not too distant future.

Hearing the goons are well pissed off ! :lmao:

The answer for the goons after dick emery was allegri ! but they went for a maverick instead.

Years of wanting wenger out came to happen but i bet they are regretting it now.

Doubt they will get relegation but it will be a s*** season for them
