Shall we just say that Bergkamp was signed by Dein on Wenger's suggestion.

Not unless it can be proven we shant.

Discussing top players and naming targets months in advance are two very different things. Vierra was clearly a Wenger signing pre-arrival. To say it's less clear that Dennis was the same is is an understatement.

FOYS' work here is done, but can't we all just avoid the ITK approach and just utter what we know to be true ? ,

I've never claimed to be in the know with this one, and I'm about as 'in the know' as anyone who has read Xavier Rivoire (Wengers official biographer) book “Arsene Wenger – The Biography” by Xavier Rivoire. Its confirmed in there.
There's none so blind as those who will not see.

Do not argue with an idiot they drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.

It's on my bookshelf. I'll have another flick through.

Edit: Top of Page 112. Says Wenger's advice was sought and that he thought the striker would be a good signing. Not a Wenger signing though. . In the next paragraph it describes how Bergkamp felt uncertain about the managerial change as ''Arsenal, and Rioch, had bought'" him.

It also says that Wenger had nurtured Ashley Cole through the Academy.

Both great players !!
