    Today sport breaking news, Manchester United 8 Arsenal 2. http://www.premierleague.com/page/MatchReports/0,,12306~57956,00.html

    Cost overhead is main killer for any type of business. Do you think Arsenal have cost overhead problem? Why they sell out those good player?

    How about Liverpool, do you think they will sell out their club to others?

    All the club is still trying their best in making the maximum profit.
    And they wish to win the title with minimum spend

    Arsenal is going to out from the top four this year after sell their good player
    8-2 defeated is the worst result

    Arsenal have a solid player policy and they don't spend what other big clubs do. Thus is down to Wengers policy of developing young players rather than buying big. However it may lose him his job this year I think.

    Their bank account, on the other hand is very healthy and fifas financial fair play rules should not be a problem for them.

    Personally I don't think Wenger will lose his job although arsenal out of the top 4 this year
    Wenger is still one of the best

    He is one of the best, but I think the club will grow impatient this year

    Arsenal not the club like Chelsea, when the boss are spending billions dollar, they are looking to get the result immediately. However, the boss cant expect too much since they are not spending but gaining money. If Wenger get fired, i doubt anyone can do better than him in Arsenal, and i think the result will become worse and worse without Wenger

    Wenger could be spending money though surely? I wonder how much money Arsenal actually has.

    I've seen their board come out and say he can spend, if he wants to. But that's in the papers, so you don't know it's true. They will never compete unless they do though, all the big clubs spend, even Spurs.

    As far as I can work out that is true, he does spend it when he NEEDS to. Like Nasri...

    Not that simple. If your boss give you money to spend, sure you will spend it. Do you think Wenger rather to get those worse result than spending money? And when the boss say that he is giving out money but the fact is he doesn't, you can't tell people that your boss doesnt actually give you the money, then you will safe with your job

    Yes I do to be honest, I think he would much rather have a bad season and develop youngsters for the future, than have a great season and spend cash.

    Develop youngsters is good f9or the future but unfortunately once the youngster become one of the best player, the club sell them out after those rich club give big offer. Anyway, finally arsenal spend some money on Mertesacker which is one of the best defender. And also another defender - Andre Santos.
    And Winder is working hard to get few midfield as well

    I'm not a soccer fan but one thing that annoys me about soccer is that most of the players from a so called local team come from outside of the local area. I'd be much more interested in supporting a local soccer team, if its players were home grown talent interested in playing for their home town, rather than just travelling to wherever they can get paid the most.

    sport is no more pure sport but money involved. As you can see most of the England team is owned by foreigner and the percentage of the local player on each team is very low. If you want to watch the game by local team, you can only watch the high school competition or teens game

    Every sport is involve money, because the cost overhead is too high, it need facility, trainer and other miscellaneous cost, . When a club require money, the major way the can go is look for sponsorship. End up those sponsorship influence game result.

    When a club taking too much money from third party, the club itself basically cant make decision their own. Each time they make decision, they need refer hidden boss.
