The chances of Arsenal actually claiming this season’s Premier League title, or even making a decent attempt at it and still being in with a chance towards the end, were already looking slim. Arsene Wenger and the Arsenal board’s promises of big spending have been exposed once again and all the other clubs have been buying players, so once again we start badly with a makeshift defence shipping goals and the whole team looking anything but world beaters.
Perhaps the most worrying thing for Arsenal fans at the start of this new season, though, has been the form of Man United. Jose Mourinho seems to have addressed the problems of last year with the signing of Romelu Lukaku and they are now scoring heavily as well as dominating the ball and conceding little.
So has that forced Arsene Wenger to look at his own strike force and see that we need more fire power? Well no, it does not appear so, but Mourinho looks set to enhance his side’s chances even further, reports the Daily Mail, by signing the Swedish striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic for another year after the 35-year old made a miraculous recovery from an operation on his knee.
All we need now is for the Gunners to sell Alexis Sanchez just before the window closes and we can all turn off the TV and hide for a year.
