Arsene Wenger may be copping a lot of abuse for his non-involvement in the transfer window but you can’t take one thing away from him – his commitment to blooding young players.
Another transfer window gone by and another chance lost at addressing the problems of the Arsenal squad. Arsene Wenger may have different opinions and reasons for choosing not to sign specific players but the truth is that Arsene tried his hardest to acquire an exceptional hitman, according to Thierry Henry..
It is very difficult for any Arsenal fan not to be critical of this transfer window. Obviously, almost every transfer window is a disappointment but it would be a soap opera if we start discussing each of those. Keeping our focus on the one that just closed, we can’t help but wonder if Arsene Wenger missed a trick or two.
Arsene Wenger has made it clear that the Financial Fair Play is now dead in the water and EUFA simply cannot stop the moneybags clubs spending what they like in the transfer market. Witness how much clubs like Man City, Man United and Liverpool have spent lately.
There have been hundreds of Arsenal transfer rumours linking the Gunners with many top strikers like Karim Benzema, Edison Cavani, Jackson Martinez, and many others, but with just three days left it looked like we were going to be stuck with Olivier Giroud and Theo Walcott for yet another season.
If you thought the start of La Liga season had no impact on the Premier League, think again. The tremors of the dull draw between Real Madrid and the newly promoted Sporting Gijon could be felt as far as North London.

It just goes to show that there is an amazing amount of websites out there that just churn out Arsenal transfer stories – with the word Benzema in the title – simply to get the clicks to increase their advertising revenue, but when a so-called National Daily newspaper does it, it gets even more annoying.
The new Glasgow Rangers manager Mark Warburton is extremely pleased that the Arsenal starlet Gedion Zelalem has decided to move up to Scotland for the whole of this season, rather than move to one of the Championship clubs that were competing for his signature.
