Woeful Wenger Sulks and Sobs Again at Chelsea's Spending Spree

After a long gap, Arsenal's manager, the wonderful, woeful Arsene Wenger is back to what he does best: sulk and sob.

The Frenchman has been severely criticised all through the last five years for his escapist attitude. If Arsenal lost a match the old fool blamed everything from the referee to the opposition players to even the field condition. But if his club won, and many times controversially, Wenger was hypocrisy at its best. The Gunners always sang "In Wenger We Believe," while the moody Frenchman went on with his meticulous plans of creating a stupid squad full of injury-prone and overrated players.

The Gooners gave several excuses for their manager's miserly behaviour. They stated that he had made their club a business role model but forgot that a football club is created to play the ball and win trophies, not to become a business with lots of profits but no intention to spend.

Wenger's latest outburst on Chelsea's massive transfer spending on the deadline day again proves that the stupid old Frenchman is frustrated at the lack of stars in his squad. The Gunners boast of sky-high profits but has a transfer spending record similar to that of a second-division club. Again, the reason is their policy to nurture youngsters and create a squad similar to Barcelona. But both Wenger and his Goons fail to understand that they have nowhere near the quality of Barca, which was proved last year at the Champions League and is going to be proved again.

Wenger spent a trifling amount on two defenders in a bid to bolster his defense. After the signings he hailed Squillaci and Koscielny in extremely high regard stating that they are both world-class quality. But with the season unfolding it was proved that the two players were highly overrated. Neither Squillaci nor Koscielny have been consistent. While Squillaci has been average at best, Wenger's highly rated youngster Laurent Koscielny has failed to play three matches straight without a booking.

Wenger was quoted as saying that Chelsea's attitude betrayed their pledge to favour UEFA's financial fair play plan. He said that "Chelsea supported UEFA's financial fair-play proposals but in the morning they announced a £70m loss and in the afternoon they buy £75m worth of players. Where's the logic in that?"

Firstly, Wenger needs to worry about his club instead of showing concern for other clubs' financial conditions (which is not even sincere).

Secondly, he needs to mature and accept facts that quality players are not interested in signing for his overrated and pathetic squad, hence he keeps telling about his stupid idea of developing a squad from the club's youth academy.

Thirdly, his nagging nature is becoming an irritating thing in the Premier League (I heard even the stewards are refusing to stay after a match which Arsenal has lost to avoid Wenger's sobbing and sulking). The old Frenchman needs to stop his squabbling attitude and accept defeat in a decent manner to the likes of other top-class managers.

Wenger's latest outburst seems to be out of his insecurity regarding his team's chances to win the Premier League or even atop Chelsea at the end of the season. The Frenchman knows that the signings will bolster the Blues' confidence and lessen his squad's chance of finishing even second place. A very pathetic attempt by Arsene Wenger to defame Chelsea and vent frustration on his inability to make top-quality signings.

His stupid attempt only made him look like the sore loser that he is and lessened his respect further.
