When it comes to publishing posts, this site can be as underhand as Darren Dein. Respected blogger chas, placed a comment during yesterday’s debate that we felt illustrated perfectly the way in which we are going to be tortured by the media in the next few days.
He wrote ……….
I’ve had a quick look and can’t see any of the current players “demanding” signings.
This from Giroud
“In my opinion, it’s necessary for the club to recruit another striker. Obviously, I think about it a little bit. It may change the play one day, especially if it’s a high profile signing. It’s useless lamenting this though. I know what I have to do and what I’m capable of. I’m focusing on me and my work. The coach is counting on me, so I don’t think too much.”
Obviously talking about his position as no 1 striker gets turned into this…..
“Arsenal striker Giroud broke cover to voice his concerns and Mirror Sport understands other players have been left bemused, unhappy and questioning whether Wenger really wants to make big signings.” by John Cross of the Mirror.
This from Arteta
“I’m convinced there will be signings this summer. We already have a very strong team – and if we get new faces they will be welcome.”
….. becomes this from EatSleepSport
“Arteta calls for new signings”
This from Wilshere
“You look at the type of players, like Higuain, we’re trying to bring in, and you’ve got to be encouraged. I think we need a few more – not to step right into the team but to add to the squad.”
……….becomes this from some other dick at the Mirror.
“Arsenal’s Gonzalo Higuain swoop is great but we need more like him says Jack Wilshere
chas’ observations are nothing new but should serve as a reminder to us all to just stop and think for a second before we rabidly stab our fingers into our keyboards and post vitriolic comments based on journalism that is calculated to mislead. We should avoid reacting in the way the authors of our discontent have envisaged. Let’s not give them the pleasure.
