Arshavin Deal Off

Arshavin is reported to be on his way back to Russia after Arsenal failed to meet his personal terms. 

 Having chased this guy for four weeks, Arsenal incompetence in the transfer market has been exposed.  Any professional club would have  spoken to his representatives beforehand to gauge what level of wages he would want, we would have then given an indication of our offer.  Why wait until now to realise he wants £100K a week and then we counter it with £50K.

If as reports indicate we do not get our man, the board needs to resign for the shambolic way in which they have operated not only in this transfer window but in the previous one too.

Under the tutelage of David Dein this deal would have been wrapped up weeks ago and we would now be looking at our second deal, for those who think this is folly, cast your minds back to  January 2006, we signed Diaby and Adebayor  very quickly and then moved on to secure the signature of Walcott.

  1. I agree with your comments. No matter what anyone says about David Dein, he was good at what he did and he knew that AFC neede the investment in order to take it to the next level. I for one have doubts that Arsenal will finish in the top 4, on the way the team is playing of late. No desire, no will, no killer instinct. I am also afraid that AFC will loose some of our players to seek glory elsewhere. I hope not but that is the way the club is headed

  2. Don’t be a mug,you can’t speak too a player or his people till you have agreement from his club, first you agree a fee with club then they allow you too speak to player or it’s called tapping up.
