Arsenal have just had their worst season for 22 years and it looks like that bad run has carried on to the few of our players that have gone to the World Cup with their respective national teams.
***WIELDING THE AXE***
Whether you’re #WENGEROUT or #RESPECTAW, or even if you haven’t chartered a biplane to carry a Twitter-handled banner over The Midlands recently, there’s a whole load more divisive fun to be had in debating which members of the cowering ‘Class of 2017’ to offload for next season. Perhaps hashtags should be trending for all first-team players? #1WOJCIECHSZCZESNYOUT versus #55AINSLEYMAITLANDNILESIN? Could prove pricey to put those up in the sky. But here, for what it’s worth, are my Yes, No and Maybes. Scarily, I’ve got just 17 of 40 players signed up for 2017/18…
While a lot of Arsenal fans, myself included, have been a bit concerned of late about the lack of chances that the Gunners have been creating, the fact that we still have not lost in the Premier League since the first game of the season and that we got our title challenge back on track with the win over Bournemouth on Sunday should be some comfort.
Alexis Sanchez was voted to be Arsenal’s Vitality Player of the Month for September, but should Walcott have been the winner?
The Chilean won the award with 39.4% of the fans vote, while Theo picked up the second-most votes with 23.2% of your backing, but interestingly the Premier League Player of the Month award had only one Gunner shortlisted, and the English forward was the one involved.
Does Wenger or the Arsenal board ever learn from their far eastern mistakes? by GW
I really, really thought that perhaps Arsene Wenger had finally learned the way to win the league again and to buy what we need, do it quickly and in his final season knowing his legacy is in tact. I think few would be unhappy with that.
Arsenal have endured a disappointing second-half of the season, and as the campaign draws to an end, we thought we’d analyse the current crop of players we have in our midst.
Arsenal dropped more points at the weekend, leaving us in the fourth and final Champions League place, and are losing grip on our place in next season’s elite competition.
The Gunners failed to make the most of their chances this weekend, which allowed Crystal Palace to walk away from the Emirates with a point, while Manchester City leapfrogged us into third in the table.
West Ham are reported to be keen on landing one of our English contingent this summer, with Theo Walcott and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain linked with the exit door.
Both players arrived from Southampton as young future stars, but neither are regular starters for our club, and I’m torn as to whether I would mind seeing the back of them.
