I for one am sick of the crap coming out of Arsenal, fans saying Decs is not worth the money, them thinking that they are the future winners of everything Football. It’s years since they have won anything and this year they finally had the chance and what happened, they bottled it. For me the result when they were two up and Sala missed the penalty, then us coming back to draw was really when the crap hit the wall for them. Now they are lowballing us on the sale of our super star Declan Rice as if we should bow to their demands and sell him to them. The two bids are an insult and as far as I am concerned they can do one, the problem is Sullivan’s big mouth on Talkshite. He went on their talking up the fact that Decs was offered a big £200 thousand a week offer but knocked it back, what he didn’t say that the contract was for eight years, no one wants to be tied down to a contract for that long when they know that in two or three years they could go to Real Madrid, Man City or a champions league team and earn double that.
What has torpedoed Sullivans plan of starting a bidding war has been Decs and his agent saying he only wants to go to Arsenal which has probably turned off a lot of clubs, look at Bayern Munich. Now Arsenal know they have the edge on everyone so they believe they can get him for a lot less than what we value Decs at so they keep putting in insulting offers. For me we should activate his extension clause because when as Sullivan said about the agreement that he could leave it would have to be if our value was met, if Arsenal don’t value Decs at that price then he stays as far as West Ham should be concerned.
