PERSPECTIVE: LIFE AFTER THE TRANSFER WINDOW by Uche
The interest from Gunners’ fans this week would have been on how Mesut Ozil fared. The Arsenal playmaker played a vital role as the World Champions Germany won a crucial match against Poland in the Euro 2016 qualifying match.
All Arsenal fans are used to the TV pundits berating Arsene Wenger and saying things like “You can’t win the title with Olivier Giroud”, but it is annoying when ex-Arsenal players join in with the criticism.
We all know that the Arsenal fans are very unhappy that Arsene Wenger did not go out and spend squillions in the transfer market (like most other top clubs) but although everyone is saying that our ONLY acquisition this summer was the goalkeeper Petr Cech, the fact is that Wenger did snap up a bagfull of promising young players.
It seems to me that EVERY YEAR, when Arsenal are not winning every single game, the readers on JustArsenal start abusing Arsene Wenger and start calling for his head, and EVERY YEAR Wenger manages to turn it around and get the team challenging in the Top Four, and even winning the last two FA Cups, but this is quickly forgotten when we have another couple of dodgy results.
LOL It didn’t take too long for the media to start the January Arsenal transfer rumours as at the start of yesterday the Guardian are saying that Arsene Wenger made a last minute offer to buy the Juventus striker Simone Zaza, despite the 24 year-old only moving to the Old Lady earlier in this transfer window, and are now preparing to go back for another bid in January.
Let’s be honest all Arsenal fans are used to the pundits having a go at Arsene Wenger, especially during the transfer window when he sits around sunbathing instead of strengthening the team. To be fair, the fans also give Le Prof a hard time, but not as much as Gary Neville does!
When all Arsenal fans were clamouring for Arsene Wenger to buy a backup for Francis Coquelin, we were semi-relieved when we heard that Krystian Bielik had arrived from Legia Warsaw, where he was played as defensive midfielder for the senior side all last season, despite his tender years.
