We fought, but not as hard as a fourth division club. Well played Bradford City. You deserved it.
If you are here as I hit the publish button you have seen the match. This is no match report.
All that we have tonight are questions, best left unanswered until the cold light of day. The red mist judgement is invariably not the right one, but the questions supporters have deserve to be addressed after undoubtedly the lowest point of the Arsene Wenger era.
That was the best available team we could put out there tonight against a fourth division team. Regardless of how tired some may be of this question, is it right we have money sitting in the bank that could have been used to strengthen that squad in the summer?
Are we the best that we can be with the resources available to us? We are run now by businessmen, and that is how it should be. This is now a huge business. The core business is football. That is what we pay top prices to watch. We’ve bought the bonds. We’ve bought the stones. We’ve bought the bricks. We want our money to be invested in the team. We want to watch players with application and passion as well as technical ability. Are we getting that?
I honestly don’t know who is responsible anymore for the criminal underinvestment in this team. I think the constant speculation is the source of the divisions between people who have this club so deep in their heart it hurts.
Tonight quite frankly I don’t give a monkeys who is to blame. Tomorrow morning would the people running this club sit down and thoroughly review how it came to pass that the best team we could muster couldn’t beat a fourth division club.
STOP MAKING EXCUSES AND DO THE JOBS YOU ARE HANDSOMELY REWARDED FOR.
Arsenal, bloody Arsenal.
