A lot of ridicule has been heaped on Arsene Wenger’s interview on Friday before the weekend matches began. Words used include “naive”, “ostrich in sand”, “deluded”, “senile” and so forth. I merely skimmed through some of the reports online, but I seemed to have missed something yesterday. And man, it’s AWESOME (at least in my book):
“We have specialised people to work everywhere. Everybody looks for centre-backs in the whole world. People with unlimited resources look for a centre-back.
“We are not in a supermarket where you go to a shelf and you ask ‘Where are the centre-backs or the strikers?’”
That is so something Jose Mourinho would say if he wants to send the press dogs barking. Remember this?
“It’s all about omelettes and eggs…No eggs, no omelette. And it depends on the quality of the eggs….In the supermarket, you have eggs class one, class two, class three. Some are more expensive than others and some give you better omelettes. So when the class one eggs are in Waitrose and you cannot go there you have a problem.”
At least, Arsenal fans better hope that’s what’s happening. Because the alternative could be much, much worse.
