The Sun’s Steve Howard Tries To Kick Arsenal Manager Arsene Wenger And Misses Horribly

STEVE Howard is the Sun’s football hack who knows more about Arsene Wenger than the Arsenal manager knows about himself…probably. In a piece about transfer dealings, the Sun’s man sat in front of News Now and Teletext, tells his readers:

It’s incredible to see the men brought in by Wenger and those allowed to go since the Invincibles won the title in 2004. The out-tray includes Vieira, Campbell, Edu, Pires, Bergkamp, Gilberto, Cole, Lauren, Ljungberg, Henry, Diarra, Flamini, Toure, Adebayor, Hleb, Lehmann, Gallas, Clichy, Fabregas and, Nasri.

The in-tray? Van Persie, Song, Diaby, Rosicky, Senderos, Walcott, Silvestre, Almunia, Sagna, Julio Baptista, Eduardo, Fabianski, Arshavin, Vermaelen, Bendtner, Koscielny, Squillaci, Chamakh, Gervinho, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Jenkinson plus the three latest

He concludes:

In my humble opinion, excluding this summer’s signings only Van Persie, Sagna and Vermaelen have proved a success — with Song, maybe, a borderline pass.

Humble. And, er, wrong. That out-tray is also the in-tray. All players named by Howard, aside from Begkamp who was signed by Bruce Rioch, became first team players under Arsene Wenger.

Such are the facts…
