Buy or bye? Make or break? Wenger’s got it sorted, finally. (Originally on YAMA)

“Bye or buy” – the words on the lips of many Gooners at the end of this January, as we failed to add any significant improvements to the squad. Excluding Henry’s short-term loan deal, the only player we signed was 19-year-old Thomas Eisfeld from Borussia Dortmund. The fans knew the squad wasn’t good enough to […]

And what makes it worse are these delinquents who pretend they’re “in the know” (ITK) even though it’s just some greasy nerd behind a computer screen begging for followers on Twitter. So without further ado, here is my […]
