Arsenal can only start to prepare for next season…

Why the Rest of Arsenal’s Season is All About Building for the Next! by AT

Arsenal fans will most certainly be breathing a sigh of relief after two consecutive wins over Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League and West Bromwich Albion in the Premier League. Following a very poor start to the campaign, it really does seem as though Arsene Wenger’s side are once again fighting for lower level honours. Let’s face it, the Gunners are already out of the title race and the current squad is simply not good enough to conquer Europe.

As usual, we find ourselves fighting for a place in next season’s Champions League and hopefully retaining the FA Cup. Now while those may be respectable achievements, there is so much more that we Arsenal fans expect from the team. But with that being said, there is quite a bit to fight for before the end of the campaign. In my opinion, the rest of this season will go into rebuilding the side and going into next season as genuine title-contenders and with a squad that can go head-to-head with Europe’s elite.

As tough as it may be, if Wenger manages to sign a world-class defensive midfielder and a world-class central defender in January and add more stability to the side, it will make for a really good foundation for the team to be much stronger next season. Considering the improvement of our finances, we can boldly expect more world-class players like Ozil and Sanchez to come to the Emirates. In a nutshell, Wenger needs to add defensive stability in the positions mentioned earlier, get the team working as a unit and spend wisely in the summer so we can fight for the title next season.

Whether we’d want to admit it or not, the truth is this season has passed us by. Even if the boys go on to finish in top four and retain the FA Cup, we can’t really bill it as a successful campaign, Arsenal need to be going for so much more than just that. Personally, I think the rest of this season is all about getting the team set for the next. Here’s hoping Arsene Wenger can keep the pieces together till the end of campaign.

      No matter who we’ll draw, we’ll virtually have no chance, if we intend to go until the end.

        We need to build up confidence
        We have a bunch of hugely potential young players who never win big title. Going deep in any competition will give them the confidence to reach their maximize potential.
        We need to have our best 11 to play with each other as many top games as possible, so they can completely in sync. One or two top addition in the summer and we will be challenger again

    It’s sad. We Wenger had to admitt we were out of the title race in November. November!!!!!

    Last season there was pressure on Wenger to win a trophy. After we won the FA Cup, the pressure was off and he is safe for the remaining 2 and half seasons of his contract.

    I think Wenger will focus on keeping Arsenal in good financial shape for 2 and half more seasons. I don’t see him signing top quality in January. Just one or 2 average players. As usual just enough for 4th place.

    I would love to get Scharr, Reus, Kondogbia or Hummels, Khedira and Cavani, etc. But we will need to wait for summer for 1 top signing and some average ones.

    I’m pessimistic but Wenger has that effect on people

      We were out of the title race in August when the transfer window closed with no CDM and no CB signed.

      Everyone will moan if we don’t get a schar devrijl ect who are cup tired and not good enough to start for us instead of waiting to get a hummels,nkoulou (best cb statistically in Europe,), laporte in the summer.

      With kosceilney and debuchy first choice rb back is monreal a bad 4th till the end of the year?

      Flamini and/or arteta will depart come September so on less we get khedira or krychowiak buy out clause we will end up with somone good enough with no scope for improvement (Cabaye,tiote ect…

    Those players in our team pull on the Arsenal shirt and give their all game in, game out. They play with the belief that they can win every game and win this championship. I am so thankful the players aren’t subjected to this diatribe. You are entitled to your opinion, I get that. And here’s my response to your opinion:

    Arsenal, we’re on your side
    Our love we can not hide
    Our hearts are open wide
    To cheer you along the way
    We will be standing by
    We know how hard you try
    Whether you win or lose
    It’s you that we choose
    So special when youse around

    Hook:
    Now you have found
    Supporters who will never let you down
    We will be there,
    to cheer you on,
    by singing this song,
    Here is the soooong…

    Arsenal, we’re on your side
    Our love we can not hide
    Our hearts are open wide
    For nobody else but you

    Whether at home or away
    We love to see you play
    We’ll be there on the day
    The day they present,

    The honour that’s meant for you

    Arsenal, we’re on your side
    Our love we can not hide
    Our hearts are open wide
    For nobody else but you

    Arsenal, we’re on your side
    Our love we can not hide
    Our hearts are open wide
    For nobody else but you
