Making Arsenal Great Again  Part 1
or Time Pressure and The Art of the Transfer Deal.

This is the Generation of that LEVIATHAN, or rather (to speake more reverently)of that Mortall God, to which we owe under the Immortal God, our peace and defence.

So the new GM for Arsenal Troll Gazidis lays down the law to Troll Wenger on Transfers and youth policy.  You will be tutored by Troll Presidential hopeful Trump on transfer strategy and youth policy.

On what errand
Furtive and sly,
Knave, dost thou slink?

Accursèd brother,
That thou shouldst come!
What brings thee here?

Rogue, has my gold
Provoked thy greed?
Dost covet my goods?

Get thee gone quickly!
This corner is mine;
What huntest thou here?

Have I disturbed thee,
Thief, at thy work,
Secret and sly?

What I have slaved
And toiled to win
Shall not escape me.

Who was it robbed
The Rhine of gold for the ring?
And whose cunning wrought
The spell of magical might?

Who made the Arsenal
Evolving its wearer's form?
Though thou didst want it,
Was it designed by thee?

And what of thyself
Couldst aright have fashioned, thou bungler?
The magic ring
Forced thee to master thy craft.

And where is the ring?
'Twas reft from thy clutch by the giants.
What thou hast lost
I will gain and keep by my guile.

Promoting the good of the people of the United Kingdom (read Arsenal) by maintaining monetary and financial stability

    WENGER: I hope the two of you are not concerned about this.
    Ozil: No, I'm not WENGER.
        WENGER: Are you quite sure?
    Ozil: Yeah. I'd like to ask you a question, though.
        WENGER: Of course.
    Ozil: How would you account for this discrepancy between you and the twin 2004?
        WENGER: Well, I don't think there is any question about it. It can only be attributable to player error. This sort of thing has cropped up before, and it has always been due to player error.
    Ozil: Listen WENGER. There has never been any instance at all of a manager error occurring in the 2004 series, has there?
        WENGER: None whatsoever, Messut. The 2004 series has a perfect operational record.
    Ozil: Well of course I know all the wonderful achievements of the 2004 series, but, uh, are you certain there has never been any case of even the most insignificant manager error?
        WENGER: None whatsoever, Messut. Quite honestly, I wouldn't worry myself about that.
    Ozil: Well, I'm sure you're right, WENGER. Uhm, fine, thanks very much.

Advising Wenger in The Art of The Transfer Deal by Troll Trump

I. 1st things first: I don't do it for the money. I've got enough, much more than I'll ever need. I do it to do it. Deals are my art form. Other people paint beautifully on canvas or write wonderful poetry. I like making deals, preferably big deals. That's how I get my kicks.

II. My philosophy is always to hire the best from the best. So I will tell you what you need to succeed Wenger, you should learn to listen.

You need:

1. A good and close to great defender: Vincent Kompany
Yes he is signed with ManCity until 2019 so what, they value him at 30mil pounds.
Do we have something that they need? How about Wilshere valuation at 23mil pounds he was at 33mil last year but due to injury, but pep wants him:
We will sweeten the pot by 10mil plus a buyback clause. Deal?

2. Next we need a good to great striker: Thomas Muller valuation at 75mil pounds but we can talk them down due to his dip in form for club and country so lets say 60mil:
What do Bayern need a proven scorer on the rise and pace on the wings.
So we will trade Alexis Sanchez and also sweeten the pot with a loan and 10mil sound fair include a buy back clause to boot, Alexis has been a good player for us we would hate to lose him, but better now than latter:

So we are in the hole what 20mil maybe 30mil for that we buy stability and progress.

3. We bring an X-factor in who can make a difference by skill and Premier League experience a real fan favorite.
Yes Moussa Sissoko at 13mil he is a bargain so we will up it to 20mil out of respect.

This is how you make deals Wenger you got to give a little to get a lot, so we are in the hole 50-60mil which was our budget.

You can’t con people, at least not for long. You can create excitement, you can do wonderful promotion, you can get all kinds of press but if you don’t deliver the goods, people will eventually catch on.

Get in, get it done, get it done right, and get out

BTW your youth policy will be put to the acid test all youth you deem worthy to play in the senior team will be loaned out for half a season to prove that he can win a starting position.  If he can fine then he will join the 1st team if he can't well he stays out until he proves himself a 1st teamer.  End of Story all football philosophies shall be scientifically evaluated...


When HAL makes his final move he mistakenly says "queen to bishop three" instead of "queen to bishop six."

This error foreshadowed HAL's mistake with the AE-35 diagnosis, indicating that something was wrong. This game was based on a game played between Willi Schlage, a tournament player, and a mysterious person named Roesch -- mysterious, because nobody seems to know his first name, and there is some disagreement in what year this game was played. Roesch makes several beginner's mistakes.

The fact that an otherwise insignificant game is recorded implies that this was a teaching game. It's certainly not a tournament game as has been suggested. From this information, we know that Poole is a beginner and, perhaps, learned the game on-board the Discovery to pass the time.

Although HAL incompletely describes the checkmate setup, he was accurate in declaring victory. In addition to the moves he describes, HAL can also win by playing Nh3.

Poole then would be forced to play Qh6 in order to prevent his queen being taken by a pawn. Then, there would be no way Poole could stop HAL. This shouldn't be seen as a mistake, because Kubrick was famous for paring down dialogue in order to speed up the pace of a film.
