A great once said “If you can’t dream, can’t imagine, then you cannot achieve anything in your life”. Great words, eh? Let’s imagine then…
Imagine, you are born in city where everyone loves football, it’s a religion to them and they worship the game. Then, you grow up by watching your national team playing a nice passing style of football no one has ever seen. After sometime, the skilled players are replaced by the ones who can’t replicate that ideology of total football.
Then, at 12, you join your local football team. You grow as a footballer there, above every other player of your age; you are tipped as the special one. You make it to the first team at 19 BUT.
You always wanted to play beautiful football. Your dream was always to play for a certain team abroad. 7 years later, your dream is about to be fulfilled. Imagine, you are there where you always wanted to be. Now, after 6 years, you are the captain of the team of your dreams but you have won nothing, the press asks if you wanted to win at somewhere else and you reply,
“This is the best club for me, I don’t want to win somewhere else, it wouldn’t be the same if I win trophies somewhere else. I want to win the Arsenal way”
The season has ended. The manager wants you to sign a contract extension, but you want to see this club winning something, what will you do?? What will your conversation be with the manager? Here’s a raw idea:
Manager: You are the best player we’ve got, here’s your 130,000k per week contract.
You: I don’t think this club is going forward, so I want to leave.
Manager: We can’t afford to lose you.
You: Then improve the squad buy some quality, and I’ll sign on 80,000k per week contract.
Manager: Ok then, but don’t make any comments in the media.
You: (thinking) Yesssss, now the club of my dreams will be competing again.
So, that’s the RVP situation in a nutshell In my opinion. He hasn’t signed yet because we aren’t done with the transfers.
Now, if you think Robin wants to leave. Where would he go?? Manchester City? I don’t think he’ll win the arsenal way there. Barcelona? They don’t have the money to buy a 40m player, let alone a striker. Defense is their priority this summer. Juventus? I think Monsieur Wenger cleared that up before me.
Now imagine Wenger. He started the youth policy, but every year, players left on a regular basis. He coped until last year. Fabregas and Nasri left. Losing 2 of your best players was too much to take. He also wanted to win. Pressure was on him to deliver. So he changed from the bargain loving Wenger to the ruthless Wenger of pre 2004, the one who wasn’t afraid of anyone. So he bought 2 top class strikers before the Transfer Window opened. Do you think he will let his best player go again and start building again?? Is he that fragile?? He wants to win again, you can see that in his eyes… And we want to win again too. So stop believing any of the Bullshit the journalists spray on their newspapers to make them sell. Stay Calm and BELIEVE.
UP THE ARSENAL.
Ps. those quote, about imagining, I made that one up.
