So Wenger never bid for Liverpool ace, surely this is one of the Arsenal legend’s rare mistakes?

So after all that speculation it turns out Mr. Wenger never actually offered cold hard cash for the goal-scoring Spaniard Fernando Torres

“I rate Torres and I believe he had quite a good start after a spell when he was in and out. Since he is back on a regular basis, he is extremely dangerous. We have known about him for a long time, but I never tried to sign him. We were interested when he first started at Atletico Madrid, but we never made any offer.” (various)

I am a big fan of the Frenchman and he is clearly one of the finest managers in recent history, but could this have been a mistake by the Gunners boss? Yes he rarely makes them so he is entitled to a blunder every now and then. Can Arsenal fans name any other screw up’s?
