Wenger’s Masterplan.

Gazidis told us last season that we were financially secure enough to survive the possibility of  failing to qualify for the Champions League. This is probably true, although I feel there is something he wasn’t telling us. It was a half truth. The statement he made should of gone something like; we are financially secure enough not to worry about the 35mil  the competition gives us – as long as we make it up elsewhere. Like in the transfer market.

This is where I feel that Wenger has pulled a master stroke.

Finishing fourth doesn’t automatically guarantee you a place in the Champions League, it only gives you the opportunity to qualify for it. We are not there yet and Wenger probably anticipated the chance of not qualifying and put certain measures in place to ensure it doesn’t affect us. Especially with the need to pay off a stadium.

In selling Kolo and Ade, Wenger achieved three things.

1. He got rid of the bad influences in the dressing room. Cesc has already come out and said that they are better off without them. They wanted to leave. We don’t need players like that at Arsenal and the manager said the Everton game was a perfect example of how cohesive the team were now.

2. It covers the revenue the Champions League will provide us. If we don’t qualify for any reason, we have the money to survive financially.  Although it will be a devastating blow football wise.

3. When we do qualify. Wenger automatically has a little bit of money at his disposal. Once the Champions League revenue is ensured, Wenger’s little safety net turns into extra cash for him to do with as he chooses. Wenger probably thought he had enough in the squad to get results against Everton and Pompey at the start of the season, and with the Champions League qualifier out of the way on the 26th, Wenger has enough time to pull a couple of rabbits out of the hat and strengthen the squad before the transfer window closes on the 1st.

He wont spend all of it, he may not spend any depending on the Celtic results, but i believe we’ll beat Celtic comfortably and see a couple of signings in the days leading up to the transfer deadline. Its a strong possibility that the majority of the money will be invested into paying off the stadium, so I don’t expect to see any David Villa’s either.

In fact, I’m that confident that we are too strong for Celtic, that I predict that we’ll put the tie to bed tonight.

Have a good day guys. Tonight we take the momentum from the Everton game to Scotland and stuff them on their own turf.

Come on the Arsenal.

    Have to say I agree Avenell.

    If we get through I definitely expect Hangelaand to come in and maybe another midfielder.

    If we don’t win then there is slight worry of players going out but none coming in.

    Celtic will be tough though although I said that about Everton, I’d love to be very wrong again 🙂

  2. avenell says:

    Irish.. it’s Jonjon’s post.. I don’t like to take his credit.. 😳

    I think they were just trying to take some pressure off the team as it would be a disaster not to qualify for the CL..

    If you drop out you may take years of overspending to get back into it..

  4. avenell says:

    So you are not talking to me then.. 😉

    What’s your score prediction for tonight.. I will put you in the widget box?.. 🙂

  5. Irishgunner says:

    How could I not talk to you Avenell 😉

    I’ll be optimistic tonight: 3-1 to the Arsenal.

    Arshavin, Bendtner and Van Persie.

  6. Irishgunner says:

    Got to go for a while.

    C’MON ARSENAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAL.

  7. avenell says:

    Same score as me than.. 🙂

    laters Irish..

  8. rico says:

    Afternoon Guys and Gals – do I get the hint that you don’t believe the Arsene’s secretary just retiring 😉 ??

    JJ, nice one, that old manager of ours is a cunning shrewd old fox 😉

  9. rico says:

    Ave – I think 1-3, and I did mentioned that earlier, please can you keep up with the comments 😉 😉 😉

  10. avenell says:

    Damn, you must have put it in our subconscious haha..

    Is the same prize up for grabs this year?.. 😉

  11. rico says:

    for sure ave, with a little luck i wont be here 😉

  12. London says:

    That is a very good post Jonjon and what’s more I agree with every word. (Very unusual for me) I know you like the rants but you are coming up with some very convincing, positive posts.

  13. London says:

    Afternoon Ave

    Is it my imagination or is the Avenell Road sign above a bit bigger?

  14. avenell says:

    London.. I have him in training… positivity rules as does dyslexia K.O.

  15. avenell says:

    That is your fault London.. I am trying to get some london stocks as the background and it went t*ts up..lol

  16. rico says:

    Cough Cough…. 😉

  17. avenell says:

    Hope this helps..

  18. rico says:

    Ha bloomin Ha ave – I have my date 😛 😛 😛

    JonJon, interesting post!

    This is where I am concerned about Wenger’s management style. If what you say is right, then Wenger is guilty of investing after the fact rather than before.

    In the 60s and 70s, the prevalent theory was around postponement of risk. So, you would game your way through decisions postponing the risk till either the risk went away (we are in the CL group stage and have the additional money) or the risk magnifies to a point where it is irrelevant (we lose to Celtic).

    Through the 80s, risk managers turned to new methods which focused on minimizing the risk early. In our case, this means buying the players we need early, so that 1) we have a better team to play Celtic and therefore, have a higher probability of winning and 2) buying when broke, so the clubs we are negotiating with don’t know how much money we have and can’t hold out for a high price (which they can now that they know that we have sold Ade and Kolo, etc. etc.)

    While I appreciate Arsene trying, I think he needs to get with the current thinking economically as he does footballistically.

  20. PDT says:

    BTW, I am predicting a 3-0 win. Clean sheet and three goals at least.

  21. PDT says:

    Also, I am predicting Subotic, Matuidi and Chamakh to sign (in that order).

    And also Van der Vaart if we sell Senderos for 6 mill+

  22. avenell says:

    PDT..

    Even if we bought more players in I cannot see Mr Wenger playing more than one or two in the same team, straight away, he likes to bed them in first..

    I think he genuinely believes in this team..

  23. PDT says:

    Agree, Ave, which is why a good manager should complete his transfers in May and early June. Much though I hate to have to hold him up as an example, see how Alex Ferguson executes his transfers. All done early and the team bedded in by end July.

  24. avenell says:

    I think Fergie has a few advantages though..

    He has the pull of the great Man U.. they are the current champs of the PL.. (of course).. and he doesn’t give two stuffs about the clubs finances..
    He knows they will be bought out by a rich sugar daddy, so he will just overspend..
    Arsene has a different approach and belief.. If he wanted to do a Fergie he could have pissed of to Real..

  25. rico says:

    bloomin phones!!
    Now i have to go out for a while, enjoy the match later 🙂

  26. avenell says:

    Is Ric there?.. Is Ric there?

    Department S.. 😉

  27. London says:

    Ave

    Don’t give up on the London stocks, they are so much more Islington that manc red.

  28. London says:

    PDT

    This might be the equivalent of me telling you that grass is green but the mancs knew that they were going to get the CL money; they also know that there is no point in them pretending to be short of money in order to get a bargain, as we do.

    The way our club chose to do their business is the source of so much frustration to many an Arsenal fan; but, to me, it is still more healthy than say Liverpool, who also got their business done early……..they paid 18 million for a right back who is so average that there wasn’t a chance that any other team were going to come in and try to out bid them.

    If Liverpool had waited, as we would have, they could have picked Johnson up for 8 million and that is only because he is English, if he were Polish no one would have paid more than 5 million for him.

  29. avenell says:

    there you go avenell road at night.. 🙂

  30. rico says:

    Get that off ave 😉

  31. avenell says:

    There you go london.. Your bricks are on..

    London Wall.. 🙂

  32. London says:

    Now that is Avenell Road

    You can almost smell the hot dogs and the horse shit 😉

  33. avenell says:

    Why are you so fussy with your bricks.?

    Have you been into property?

  34. London says:

    I like the name of the site and I thought it deserved the right back ground. The truth is probably that I am very nostalic about Highbury and Avenell road has very special memories for me, so I thought “Keep it real” as Cesc would say 😉

  35. avenell says:

    I cannot believe the house prices in Avenell Road and St Thomas’s etc..

    I can remember in the 80’s the boarded up windows and the matresses just thrown out of the upstairs windows onto the front garden..

  36. avenell says:

    Did you do a score prediction by the way.. hurry up no copying Jonjon.. that’s cheating.. 🙂

  37. Big Raddy says:

    I am going for another 1-1.

    I went 1-1 at the w/e and hopefully we will get a similar result !

    In fact I am going to go 1-1 for the rest of the season.

    And in anticipation of tonight’s win, I am drinking a fine Valpolicella, made from grapes nurtured under clear Venetian skies. Lovely

  38. avenell says:

    Raddy.. I don’t care what you are drinking as long as you have those lucky socks of yours on.. 🙂

  39. rico says:

    Hi Raddy, I like your way of thinking 😉

    That wine sounds….. yummy

    Ave – Nice brick 😉

  40. rico says:

    I’m having veggie burgers bbq’d, fried onions in a roll….. now that’s football 😉

  41. rico says:

    And I have the same top on that I had on Saturday, funny enough I hadn’t worn it for a few years, the last time I wore it for each game, we won the Double 😛

    Of course, its a Gooner top 😉

  42. avenell says:

  93. Freire says:

    yeah riaf i think we still need two players….one at the most…not to replace anyone..just to add to the team…

    song will have his breakthrough season this year and we’ll miss him when he goes acn…

    we need someone with abit more about him than denilson or diaby…

  176. avenell says:

    I still feel a bit dissapointed.. I want to steamroll everyone..

  177. Freire says:

    Hahaha, why he keeps chickens? He likes to look at them thinking of spurs supporters? 😛

  178. JonJon says:

    i think hangelaand and matuidi and we are set…

    i think we’ll be ok with just signing matuidi but seeing as though gallas, silvestre and senderos contracts are up next year we might as well sell one of them now and get a replacement in now…

  179. avenell says:

    Freire .. rico is a lady (cough) as is irishgooner,, that’s why we swerve the ‘c’ word..

    She keeps them for the eggs..

  180. raif says:

    my problem with Diaby was that he was in the same academy as Hatem Ben Arfa and Benzima and a few others at the same time..

    and he was required better then all of them…

    what gets me is.. all them players are now world class and a milion times better then diaby..

    i guess what im saying is he has no football knowledge to become a better player. technique can carry you so far.

  181. JonJon says:

    ave.. 😉

    i enjoyed that…

  182. avenell says:

    He as no awareness raif.. Cesc’s greatest asset..

  183. Freire says:

    Oh, I see. I didn’t know they were women, mine fail 😛

    Sorry for the ‘c’ word 😛 I’ll never say that again.

  184. avenell says:

    No probs mate.. just put a ‘*’ in.. 😉

  185. raif says:

    he has Nothing AVE.. nothing in the “KAFA”

    (thats HEAD in turkish) 😀

  186. avenell says:

    Unbelievable…. Hleb scored..

  187. JonJon says:

    your right raif

    technically he’s brilliant but every other aspect of his game is poor…

    i dont trust him in the middle…

    one minute he can beat 5 players and set up a counter but the next hes trying to dribble outside his own box and he gets tackled…hes abit of a liability….

  188. avenell says:

    What’s a “gam a it” ?

  189. avenell says:

    gallas got a good curl on his goal.. haha

  190. Freire says:

    Well done, Arsenal!
    I’m going to wash my body, mates, LOL … see you all, and have a good night!

    WHO’S THAT TEAM WE ALL ADORE?

  191. JonJon says:

    ARSENAL.. 😉

    seeya mate

    gallas curler was a beauty. 😉

  192. JonJon says:

    i used to like strachan…ave you heard this bollox ave??

  193. avenell says:

    Hark at that knob Strachen..

    If he loved scotland so much .. why did he join Man U and Leeds.. two faced bastard..

  194. JonJon says:

    its not a level playing field

    citeh have spent 200mil and still cant catch arsenal….

    yes weve bought theo and ramsey for 17mil but weve just sold 40mil worth of players and make a profit on transfers every year….

    not one englishman in the arsenal team…

    nothing like making the agenda obvious is it fellas???

  195. JonJon says:

    thats two games were we havent played wengerball well but weve dug deep and fought the battle and weve got two wins…

    last year we would of struggled to draw….i think weve turned a corner…

  196. avenell says:

    Celtic and rangers haven’t done that have they.. and completely f*cked up scottish football .. bitter sweaty tosser..

  197. avenell says:

    I never liked him 25 years ago since he scored a superb solo goal for Man U against Arsenal at Highbury..

  198. JonJon says:

    haha the hatred runs deep then does it…..

    i always thought he was alright…a funny guy…

    but no i was wrong…they all hate the arsenal…

  199. avenell says:

    Nah.. It’s black and white.. arsenal or not..

    Nice post rico.

    0-2 scoreline for me. Billy G to score & Little Nicky
    😈

    I think I take the chocolates don’t you 😉

  208. rico says:

    Morning george, I think you do 😉

    But I also think JJ and Freire went for 2-0, so guess you will have to share 😦

  209. gnarleygeorge9 says:

    But I should win coz I picked Billy G to score 1st.

  210. rico says:

    Ok george, fair shout, great deflection wasn’t it, about time we had some good fortune 😛

  211. PDT says:

    Am I still in moderation?

  212. PDT says:

    OK, looks like I’ve been banned from Avenell Road….

    😦

  213. gnarleygeorge9 says:

    Cheers rico, & Little Nicky 😈 wasn’t far away from the own goal 🙂

  214. rico says:

    Good job the Celtic boy popped it in, I would hate to have seen Nikki miss from there 😉 😈

  215. London says:
