The two sides of football

Post  cyprussyd on 2018-02-25, 7:02 am

Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea wants a £350,000-a-week deal to stay at Old Trafford. The 27-year-old earns around £180,000 a week but lags behind forward Alexis Sanchez, who is on £505,000 a week. (Sun on Sunday) 


Non-league side Salford City FC ensured no food from the club's postponed clash with Tamworth on Saturday was wasted - by donating it all to a homeless shelter. (Manchester Evening News)

Yes indeed.
I don't really know how to sum it up without reverting to expletives so I'll just leave it at that.

In the report on the League Cup final it was pointed out that Guardiola has spent more in 21 months than Wenger has in 21 years.  I bet Wenger made more money for Arsenal from selling on young players he had developed than the other fellah will.

I used to like Wenger due to the football Arsenal used to play and bringing in some of the best footballers to grace the English game, unfortunately those days have gone and his constant moaning for the past few years has done my head in.

I had a few chats with Arsenal fans both before and after the match on Sunday and almost to a man they wanted rid of him.  One of the main reasons they’ve turned against him is that he refuses to invest in better players despite the new stadium now being complete. 

They also fear that once he does go the cost of trying to build a team capable of regularly competing in the CL will be beyond them.

 Those views weren’t from younger ‘ungrateful’ fans but from older fans that had been there and done it.

For all Wengar has given to English football it’s sad that it’s going to end in tears but I wouldn’t be surprised he’s not there next season.

Can I say I hope he is there next season for one reason only.

Haha. I wish I had thought of that on Sunday.  

There again maybe not,  the atmosphere may have changed somewhat.

For all he is appearing to be a dinosaur in some folks eyes I know that Wenger is constrained by spending conditions imposed by owners/board. There is also a wage structure to take into account/ For all he still has tens of millions to spend it has to be rationed out fairly wisely to cover a team so he still has a balancing act to do.  

Just the way football has gone, but it is not going to be sustained whilst the big clubs are dishing out fabulous contracts to single players.
