Wenger doing his bit on deadline day… Don’t get to excited… Wenger is in Rome to ref a charity game…. Oh how active of you Arsene……
Well after watching us huff and puff and fail to blow Leicester away yesterday it seems pretty obvious to everyone apart from Arsene of course that we are still a few players short of having a really good competitive team/squad.
We have a striker starting games who to be fair to him is getting tons of criticism but in all honesty he should not be playing so why is the manager not getting moaned at for picking someone who clearly at the moment isn’t good enough to lead the line for Arsenal. Why are we as usual discussing the same old things….
Would Sanogo get in the starting line up at Man City, Chelsea or Liverpool…? No he wouldn’t so why is a club of Arsenal’s stature starting with him up front…?
Why do we still not have a defensive midfielder signed up and then there’s the centre back scenario, yes the very position Arsene said would be filled if Thomas Vermaelen left…. Didn’t he know TV was leaving in May…? Why waituntil deadline day to try and replace him… Should of been done months ago.
The team yesterday lacked pace up front, we played lovely tippy tappy football in front of the Leicester defence but there was as usual very little end product.
Fans are crying out for a new striker but it seems that we have failed yet again ( so far ) to buy the defender we need and the central midfielder we have needed for years…! Wenger bought well at the start of the transfer window but will this be yet another transfer window we will look back on and think that we have failed yet again to address what we really need…?
Until 11:01pm tonight we won’t know that answer but if as it seems we get no one else in I think it’s going to be a long hard season and Arsene, after all the bravado about buying early and having funds, is going to be under a lot of pressure to deliver.
It’s a shame the board and the club are not far more pro-active in making sure the fans get the players the club should be buying when they are so quick and active to put up ticket prices and tell us how well run they are…!
Lets hope for some good news later today…… I’m not very confident…!
