SMMFDH..........at least this time it ain't Wenger talking but Goddamitt, this is why no one should feel sorry for him
"It's not Wenger's fault, blame it on the players..." It's his FUCKING PLAYERS!
Xabi Alonso reveals he was close to leaving Liverpool for Arsenal - but bid fell £3m short of Reds' valuation
'I was really close to Juventus and I was close to Arsenal,' he told the Liverpool Echo. 'But, it was just £3m. Liverpool were asking £18m and both offered £15m – so that's why it didn't happen.'
Arsenal had Cesc Fabregas, Abou Diaby, Alex Song and Denilson as their central midfield options at the time but Arsene Wenger wanted to add Alonso to his options.
The former Real Sociedad man, widely regarded to be one of the best midfielders of a generation, later moved to Real Madrid before joining Bayern five years later.
Alonso made the right choice.
with all due respect to Arsenal, most players who either chose to leave or not come to Arsenal made the right choice
Instead of Gareth Bale, Wenger bought Walcott instead:
"We didn't take him as we had Ashley Cole and Gael Clichy and didn't want another left-back. I must confess it was a huge mistake as he can play in midfield. He struggled at the start at Tottenham, then they moved him to midfield and he has done exceptionally well. The career of a player sometimes depends on playing in the right position." - Wenger in 2013.
"My biggest regret, I was so close to signing Cristiano Ronaldo, and not only did I not get him he signed for Manchester United, so that of course still hurts today." - Wenger in 2014.
The fuck is this?
You remember sol Campbell? Of course you do. Premier League x2. FA Cup x3. 1 community shield. He scored in the CL final and was minutes away from winning it. A member of the invincibles.
"His career is won't be the same and it will turn to shit." "He'll regret going to Arsenal." "He wont win anything with them." <<<The dumb shit y'all were saying.
No players by that name has ever played for SPURS, we had a youth academy player named Sulzeer, I think he converted to Judaism, an hasn't been seen since.
