What an absolute wanker. I know I'm a day or two late on this but I'm busy sometimes too. This man, who somehow weaseled his way into the job of Uefa President just because he used to be a great player, should be removed from the game. If you haven't heard, Platini went on a rant attacking our manager Arsene Wenger.
He started off by claiming that Arsene Wenger wasn't about football, just about business:
"I like to talk about football, him (Wenger) about business. We must stop with Wenger and all that."
He said he would never support goal line replay technology in football because:
"It would make me happy that Arsene Wenger never sees it."
When asked about Romanian side Cruj's victory over Roma, the massive cunt said:
"That is what makes football so great," Platini said. "It is what people like Wenger do not want, little clubs beating the big clubs, because they want their business."
So clearly the Uefa President has it in for Arsenal and Arsene Wenger and he should be forced to resign. Why is he allowed to say anything he wants attacking a manager with no reprocussions? This attack was unwarranted and entirely untrue. Wenger doesn't care about the football side of things? Well we're top of the leauge, have the best youth setup in England and also run a profitable business. If you've seen the number we're making quite a hefty penny from ticket sales and will be making more from the Highbury square apartments starting this year. So is he mad because our club is self-sufficient and doesn't rely on a fat Russian oligarch? Would he prefer for the club to be taken over by someone who will spend hundreds of millions on new players so the club goes into debt like Liverpool and United? He needs to be held accountable for these statements.
The League Manager's Association has defended Wenger, as has the rest of the world outside of the insane asylum that is Platini's mind.
"Platini has made serious and personal comments about one of football's greatest ever managers, who is also counted among our most respected members. "If Platini wishes to address certain issues with Arsene Wenger this would better be done privately and not in the public domain. "I believe Arsene has always acted in the best interests of the game."
So the moral of the story is everything thinks Platini is a cunt, and you should too. Fact is, you can't say Wenger doesn't care about the football side of it when he's won almost everything there is to win in this league. And most people support the use of goal line technology you wanker.
And the last bit for the day is Arsene Wenger talking about Jack Wilshere. He compares the young man to Gooner Legend Liam Brady and says that he'll nurture the boy's talent by not putting too much pressure on him. Little Jack scored his first goal against Sheffield United and I have to say he's the most exciting young player I've watched in a long time. Wenger is right though, he has all the talent but he has to keep applying himself and not be weighed down by all the expectation on him.
So that's about it today. Remember to check out SoccerPro.com for all of your Arsenal and football related needs. Cheers!
