Alexis Sanchez, Thomas Lemar, Chelsea, Spurs & more

Alexis Sanchez

Is anyone else getting a little bored of it all the Alexis Sanchez stuff now?

At the weekend, he flew to France with his girlfriend, his agent and his lawyer. Then social media exploded that he was there to speak with PSG. A few hours later, someone mentioned he was there to get his visa. Or maybe his girlfriends visa. Or maybe his girlfriend had a modelling shoot?

All the ITK’s who bore the hell out of me seemed to know exactly why he was there, what flight he was on, and what colour underwear he was wearing. It is all a little boring lads. Give it up. You do not know what is happening. Stop pretending you do.

Arsenal players had been given the weekend off. Granit Xhaka posted a picture of himself on a balcony over looking a body of water. It certainly was not the River Lea.

As for Sanchez. I am at the point where I really do not care if he stays of go’s. We have lost better players. We will sign better players. It is Arsenal FC, not Alexis FC.

Thomas Lemar

I am as equally bored by the Thomas Lemar saga.

As predicted, the ITK’s claiming it was a “done deal” have been exposed as liars. They have basically made up that they knew what was going on to build a 14,000 twitter following, before launching a blog. Well done lads. Great way to lose any credibility before you have even started.

I will never understand why a chap living in a bedsit pretends to know what is going on at Arsenal. It is dull, and it just draws transfers out further.

The bigger joke is the people who follow these muppets. Asking questions about players or contract situation.

THEY DO NOT KNOW WHAT IS HAPPENING.

Like with Alexis Sanchez, I am now bored with Thomas Lemar. If the deal is deal, let’s move on to the next one.

Chelsea

You have to laugh at Chelsea. The club and the fans. Yes they have won 2 league titles in 3 years – something which we should all be jealous of, but the attitude of their nouveau riche fan base, the majority of which have only followed the club for a little over a decade, is hilarious.

At the final whistle, chants of “spend some f**king money” went up. So entitled a fan base that they are demanding Roman Abramovich, a man who has spent the good part of £1bn of his own money on players, spend some more.

And then we have questions aimed at Antonio Conte about his “lack” of transfer activity.

This season, Chelsea have already spent £130m. They have signed a new striker, a new midfielder and a new centre back. They have spent the cash.

It is not like the season Arsenal bought Petr Cech and no outfield players. They have spent, and spent big.

They are the type of spoilt fans that complain when their mum brings home Ben and Jerry’s ice cream but they wanted Haagen Daz. A joke of a fan base.

Although maybe it is this “always demand more” mentality that leads to 2 titles in 3 years.

Spurs

The other side of the coin is Spurs. They have yet to spend a penny, yet there have been no articles of them being in crisis.

In fact it is completely the opposite.

Their fans and the media are almost accepting that Spurs are not going to sign anyone. “We are doing it the right way” they keep claiming.

If the right way means no league titles in 56 years, then that is laughable.

Top 4 now a trophy?

In the last week, I have seen fans of both Spurs and Liverpool boast about their sides success in the last 12 months.

A Liverpool fan, when saying that his club should sign Alexis Sanchez, defended his reasoning that The Chilean would want to join them by calling the club “upwardly mobile”.

If 1 League Cup in 11 years is what thy now define as success and being upwardly mobile, then have a weird barometer of success.

Of course, what he meant was that they had qualified for the Champions League for the second time in 8 seasons.

Arsenal won the FA Cup last season. Liverpool finished 4th, 1 point ahead of the Gunners.

You don’t win a trophy for finishing 4th. You do if you win the FA Cup.

We have also had similar comments from Spurs fans on the blog. Boasting about how successful they were last season. Saying that they are a bigger draw then Arsenal. Laughing about their rivals having Thursday night football. Spurs are in the Champions League. Arsenal are not.

But Arsenal won a trophy last season. Spurs nothing. So who really should be laughing?

Suddenly to Liverpool and Spurs fans, top 4 is more important than a trophy.

    Ha ha ha. One of the most sadly ironic articles I have ever had the misfortune of reading. You open up with a tirade against a website for knowing nothing and making things up. The very next section, you decide you are well placed to talk about Chelsea.

    Just a couple of things on that, that you may not have realised having nothing to do with, and knowing nothing about Chelsea…..
    1) No-one was singing spend some f***ing money” at the end. The crowd were booing. Not at the players as some reported, but at the referee. Then, if you watched match of the day, you will hear the boos for the referee quickly turned into chants of “chelsea, chelsea” to show our support for the efforts of the players
    2) In the last 4 years, we as a club have a net spend of precisely £0. That is right. £0. Not even counting any of the loan fees we get, or the fee we are about to get for Costa. Spending £130m on players is a stat that in itself means nothing if you are selling more players. Just look at our bench on Saturday. We had a sum total of 44 PL appearances. All people are asking is that some of the cash we have made over the past 4 years through winning the league (something hard for you guys to understand admittedly), sponsorship deals, tv money etc is re invested to make our squad stronger rather than weaker than last year.
    3) Talking about us as a flaky fanbase when the hashtag WengerOut was trending on twitter after 40 minutes of the new season is laughable.

    Maybe stick to writing about your own club. And certainly try and avoid slagging off others for writing about things they don’t know about before going on to write about another club’s fanbase

    Typical of Chelsea, spoilt brats. The chap above moaning about net spend. One of the highest wages in the land does not amount to “spending”?
    Watch Spurs and Liverpool target the FA Cup this season. If Arsenal are winning it regularly ahead of winning the community shield regularly, it must be achievable?
    I still can’t fathom Chelsea looking for sympathy for their lack of depth… sold KDB and Lukaku who were a few years from being at potential. But like you said Keenos if that is what has worked, who is to argue… just stop the moaning and let clubs with genuine troubles like Newcastle to moan…
