Arsenal RUUDLY accused of leaving transfers too late

Ruud Gullit told the Match Of The Day viewers that he believes Arsenal left their transfers too late, and as a consequence, were unprepared for the current season.

The Gunners moved quickly to bring in Granit Xhaka following the previous campaign, but after an early snub from Leicester’s Jamie Vardy, their transfer activity stalled.

Arsenal tactics – The best formation with our new arrivals….


It is not a secret anymore, Arsenal have gained the signatures of Shkodran Mustafi and Lucas Perez. That’s added to Rob Holding and Granit Xhaka who have also joined the first XI squad.

Have Arsenal got another John Stones in Holding?

When Arsenal completed the transfer of the young central defender Rob Holding from Bolton Wanderers at the end of July, the response from the Arsenal fans was underwhelming to say the least. The tiny, compared to most Premier League transfers, price that we paid combined with him coming from a club that had just finished rock bottom of the Championship did not help and not many of us knew much, if anything, about him.
