For those that haven't heard yet there was an AGM meeting today where fans asked kroenke, Wenger, Gazidis, and Sir Chips(Love that name) several questions. Most not worth the mention (IMO). But one thing that definetely got my attention was Wenger's plan on how he plans on putting Arsenal together now & in the future through three levels. For most of us this isn't to suprising but nonetheless, It's great to hear we're following what to me seems like a similar model to Bayern Munich.
1ST Level :
"The first level is, of course, to continue to defend our style of play, our philosophy of play and our values. That can only be done by developing our own players, and the core of our team has to come from the development inside our club.
2ND Level :
"The second level of the development of our club has to be based on the intelligence of our eye. That means players who are unknown and who can become big players here, through our connections, the quality of our scouting, through the quality of what we have seen in them and how they could develop.
& the 3RD Level :
"Then, the third part of our development and ambition is to scout and buy recognised world-class players. This season for example we have bought Ozil. You don't need any scout to buy Ozil. You just need money!
