I AM UTTERLY BUTTERLY FLABBERGASTED…

flabbergasted

Whatever that may mean I guess u will get the idea… each one of us (or maybe the majority of us who had experienced at least 1 of the former arsenal transfer windows) knew that there would be absurd rumors connecting each and every player that’s available in the market, which can go into someone who is not at all in the market depending on the imagination of the one framing the story, when this transfer window began…

As it was widely rumored we have 70 million to spend, and gazidis almost confirmed that amount, we knew this was going to be with high profile players.. And it turned out as we expected… jovetic was revealed as a target by goal.com in January exclusive and they followed up the story and everyone else started with that… then there were many others as media made sure arsenals 1st priority is a striker… so they went with higuain, Rooney etc… They didn’t forget to provoke our emotions by bringing fabregas into the mix… they also had the idea of a cdm, so went with the release clause of Fellaini…

 The media also did what they do best in all transfer windows, saying that arsenal had a bid rejected and wenger could have sealed the deal for ” few extra millions” but he backed off… they insert the word arsenal target to each and every transfer speculations… the sad thing is, most of us, knew all this were going to happen, but still fell for it… we start every discussion, saying that we know the news is absurd, but if it’s true (malayalam phrase is – athava biriyani kodukkunnundenkilo) then what about its implications, and so on… then shit turns real… we r sure , the player is a target, we r sure the amount arsenal has bid.. we r sure of the transfer fee put forward by the club, even abt the view of the player, his agent, his brother, his father and other family members…  then, the player signs a contract extension or signs for another club, its chaos… moaning starts, which become blaming the board and more frequently arsene wenger… IF ONLY THAT STINGY OLD BAT COULD OFFER ‘A FEW EXTRA MILLIONS’ WE COULD HAVE HAD THIS DEAL DONE AND DUSTED A LONG TIME AGO. Even the most loyal fans who are considered to be experienced about these things and are known to be prudent and sensible, start saying, that maybe the real story… they too start to  question the intentions of the club..

It’s sad, seeing us fight with each other saying Rooney is better than Suarez and higuain is best and all of them jointly blame the club if any of these joins another club… and almost all of us know, the real transfer business doesn’t work as easily as in fifa and fm… But still…

Why are arsenal fans the most manipulatable, I don’t know… but one thing is clear, media gets most returns of their shit stories when they attach arsenal to their stories… they don’t even follow up actual bids.. Take the example of bender who was confirmed to be bid  by arsenal… they know exactly which spots are to be pricked, which nerve endings are to be stimulated and were we all tickle… they play to that every year, we fall to that every year…

In social sites we almost had the medical of higuain completed, I was so adamant that I won’t take any of those news at face value… I made fun of fellow fans for saying deal is done, I made fun of people saying higuain in 48 hours… subconsciously i was falling for it. I started discussing about  the 3 yr contract and 100k wages… and I even told one of my friends (fan of another club ) that we do have higuain… next day all is puffs  and after that Perez comes out and says there was not even a bid.. Don’t know what to believe and what not to believe…

I just wish time just fast forwards to august 17, so that such bullshits can finally seize and we can concentrate on what really matters… that which happens inside the pitch for 90 mins… I am just fed up of tuning in everyday for some relevant news only to be sidetracked by stupid rumors and bemoaning fans…

I feel respect to some fellow gooners who abstain from such stupidity, they enjoy the vacation… they say, I trust in wenger, our discussions are not going to make a difference anyway… even though I can’t do that and refrain from commenting and following each lead, I just wish I don’t let myself down by believing rumors like I did once…

haaa… a load out of my chest…

      don’t have a clue which website you’re on , do you? This is an Arsenal
      SUPPORTERS website, And if you even had looked at this Article properly , with your eyes rather than your ass , you’d know what is being said. Rather than being a retarded cunt , you could probably put those eyes and fingers to good use, and actually READ before you comment.
      pretty shocking to know that you are among the Arsenal family…..
      Anyway this is good Article, and yes we are easily manipulated by the media…sad.
