Arsenal fans have been left in a dire state of desperation this week following on from what was a very disappointing opening fixture against Liverpool, paired with an equally disappointing transfer window. It means that some fans have already thought about taking action against the club to make their views and voices heard, but should the fans really be panicking?
It’s been a constant topic of discussion in the football media world and Sky Sports pundit Charlie Nicholas, believes that Arsenal fans shouldn’t be panicking, even if the Gunners lose to Leicester this weekend. The Soccer Saturday pundit said: “Yes the pressure is on Arsenal more than Leicester but failing to win the first two games is not dramatic. It’s not time to panic.
“Arsenal are doing what they always do, waiting. They wait, wait, wait in the transfer market and then play catch up. This happens every season. I look at Wenger and I think that he hates the transfer market but that just adds to the point of getting business done early.”
Personally I am not in a state of panic regarding Arsenal’s situation. I’m frustrated at the way the club is being run and disappointed at our result against Liverpool, however I wouldn’t say I’m in a state of panic about what is going to happen to Arsenal this season. In my opinion Arsenal fans should’ve expected something like this to happen, I certainly expected Arsenal to struggle in the opening game and so it hasn’t shocked me that we didn’t pick up all three points. Every year Arsenal seem to struggle at the start of the campaign and although it shouldn’t be this way, many fans have just learned to anticipate it.
The only way Wenger can rectify the situation is by pulling his finger out and making moves in the transfer window whilst it remains open, because after the window closes, he cannot rely on anyone else to take the blame for Arsenal’s disappointments beside himself.
