I agree rumors have been doing the round for over a year, it has also been reported that yaya thinks kolo would be stupid to join Man city.
I do not like the idea of selling Kolo to them but I have to say i am not adversed to selling him and gallas come to that.
Many on these Boards seem like very new supporters to me and dont recall standing in the Northbank on a cold winters day preying that wrighty would not score during the first half as there would be a second half of peering up towards the clock end watching the Arsenal defend.
Mr Wenger was correct a couple or so seasons ago when he was reported to have said that if you feed fans caviar it is hard to go back to beans on toast.
I love the Arsenal to win more than anything but I am happy that we are still in the top echelons of the league and for the most part making a challenge we have a very large debt we have been unfortunate in the fall of the property markets with our Highbury redevelopment
we have a wonderful new football stadium ( although i was very very sad to leave highbury) we have a very well developed youth system and I truly feel that we have to be pragmatic I do not think the board have made our finances so bad we HAVE to be in the top 4 every year (yes its great and yes i love it that we are)
I think that even a europa cup spot is better than nothing.
If we look back we did NOT win the league between 1952 and 1970 18 long horrid years infact we did not win a bloody thing!!!
I do not feel we shall go 18 years again but we might need to wait another couple before things that Wenger has planned come to fruition
Although finacialy we might cope with missing the CL for one year (ot two?), I think the trickel on effect of loosing good players, not being able to attrackt new good players, makes it IMHO more difficult to isolate it to a one of event.
