Kind of a stupid statement. We aren't the richest club in the world and we rely on CL football money. Even though Xhaka hasn't turned out to be that great don't be expecting any signings similar to him this summer if we don't have CL football, in favt we probably would have difficulty attracting a guy like Perez if not for the CL. I'm sure you'll be one of the more vocal people here if we aren't spending massively in the summer too, what a surprise. What do we have to appeal to better players? We haven't won shit, we don't pay the biggest wages, we don't unsettle players and force them to join us. The only two things we have going for us are Arsene being an absolute legend and attracting good players, and we play in the competition all top players want to be in. Cut off your nose to spite your face much?
