Operation “Clean House” Proving Difficult
We all knew this was coming. The difficulty offloading the players that do not want to play for Arsenal is even more complicated when trying to get “top dollar” for them (when they aren’t worth nearly the asking price).
Wenger was interviewed today talking about how he would like to bring in 2 new players but can’t because of the obstacles that are called Bendtner, Chamakh, Squillachi (and maybe others we don’t know about) Wenger wasn’t specific when saying which players are arranging departures. Here is what he had to say:
“We are still looking to add one or two players but it depends also on how many go out because we have to respect the squad number,” Wenger told Arsenal Player.
“It’s important to respect that so before we get players in we have to get some players out. That has not happened yet, the market is very quiet.”
“I cannot tell you anything concrete about the situation [regarding those who might leave] because if they are not finding clubs they will stay here and be players of the squad. At the moment I cannot give you any concrete or clear indication.”
Yeah, I would think “the market” would be “very quiet” for the players that we have languishing in the unwanted section of the club. I mean come on, look at this guy…he hates us.
Many said that the scenario of being “stuck with the dead weights” would happen because of how undesirable they are, and that looks like a more accurate prediction for every day that passes by without any of them leaving the club. In my opinion, if you have to let a couple of them go on the free to bring in players who at least WANT to play for us, then so be it, cut your losses; but then again, that would be a terrible piece of business. Anyway, let us know what you think.
ARSENAL FOR LIFE
