WENGER RESIGNS, FRESH BLOOD IN NORTH LONDON
A new era begins in North London after Arsene Wenger finally stepped down as Arsenal boss, being replaced by rookie Corey Eaton-McKnight with many dubious questions being asked about the appointment but it seems to be one of the youngest appointments ever, and as well which could be one for the future. On the appointment, the majority shareholder Stan Kroenke has promised a wealthy budget to improve the squad to make them title hopefuls the budget is rumored to be in the 100 + million mark, not providing the title could well come a costly price at the end of the season, the ambitious shareholder demands success and silverware from the new manager, “not having a league title in ten years hurts, with fans constantly on your back to spend big, we simply couldn’t afford it because of paying off the Emirates, but now that’s cleared we’re more or less debt free we can afford to spend, but we won’t splash cash for the sake of it compared to other rivals, the manger will be held responsible for all signings, he will tell me the player he wants and how much they’re demanding and I will consider whether or not it’s worth funding, it’s simple”.
The new manager is very proud to take upon this new challenge, "It's all new to me, I've rarely managed in the Premier League before so I may well be out of my comfort zone, but I'll rise to the challenge and face whatever is ahead of me, I am a young British manager who is ambitious and talented and willing to excel in management.
"Arsenal are a massive club, and deserve to be winning trophies every season, this is what I want to bring to the club, and I'm optimistic for the forthcoming season, and I believe if I manage to bring in all of my signings this can take place, I don't want Arsenal to be seen as that boring 4th place club anymore, because they're capable of bigger and better, with a new manager it will take time for the team to adapt to new tactics. but it's all about a good finish the first few months results don't bother me at all, it will be nice to start well, but if we can be consistent throughout the season, reach the latter stages of the UEFA Champions League, I, myself will be very pleased as for me I see this as a transition season. Next season will be where everything comes into shape, it might not be quite what the owner wants but for me it might be the best I can offer, but I will see I think the tactics I will deploy can win over the fans and aim for a top 2 finish.
"I may have been given a big budget, but by no means does that mean I'm going to be wasting it, I've got a budget to work within and that is all that counts, if there are players I want who will price me out then quite simply I won't be able to purchase them and will have to look at options elsewhere. I want to build both, a team for now and the future so I will have to weigh up my options and decide on the players who I want the most and where they will fit in well. I'm not going to splash 40 million on players for fun, I'm also looking to offload the weaker players, those who aren't required within the club anymore - the Rosicky, Monreal, and Flamini sort of players - they know they're heading off and have accepted it really well, I've thanked them for the previous service to the club".
During an interview with the BBC on this arrival an interviewer tried to get a sneak into some of the possible targets.
The targets obviously will spread quickly, with the media accessibility in the modern world, he added.
There are numerous players I am chasing to get deals on as soon as I can, so that we can have an assembled squad where the morale is high within the changing room, every year Arsenal get linked with some striker or another, and this will be no other with a list of strikers I am keen on, I aim to strike a deal with a French international sometime soon to play with Giroud as I believe they will work well together, this may be behind, or beside him, he will know Laurent well too that is all I am saying for now...."
For now, this is probably my first post on here in ages, I hope it's alright, and you enjoy the little suspense, you guys can guess who you think it is, until I post the next update
