I mentioned this before but I think it's something that really reflects this and I smirk everytime I think about it.....If any of you read Football365 and their mailbox, there's a mail from an Arsenal "fan" who calls himself Stewie Griffin today that is hilarious. He's a semi-regular mailboxer who detests Wenger more than anyone I've ever come across, it's fantastic.
He signs off with this gem.
I professionally work with someone who worked with Emery and his staff previously and one of Emery's coaching staff told him that "they are shocked at the level of quality" at the club. That was last summer when they first arrived. I was also told that they had to pretty much work with what they had though as they wouldn't be able to recruit anywhere close to what PSG do.
It's why I wasn't slightly worried when all the goons were saying that Emery will get them back to the top.
Wenger really did let things rot there. Superb tactician and coach of his era but he got such a stranglehold on the club that he couldn't let someone else take care of important aspects such as contracts, player recruitment, etc. No trust after Dein.
It's all absolutely brilliant though.
