With more signings for the future coming in, how about something for right now? by KM
Hello, fine readers of this blog! How is your week going on? We have an Arsenal transfer rumour going on! Yes, Rob Holding look certain to join us! Didn’t that get you excited! I am pumped. At best he’d be another Calum Chambers, just cheaper.
We need another CB and a new striker, but Rob Holding and Takuma Asano are well… I have nothing against them, but I feel like their talent will be wasted. They will not be first team players, they will hardly be part timers too. Their most probable fate is to get loaned out and it will be sad for their careers.
They will get stuck between being loaned out to different clubs all the time, never really settling in somewhere and they’ll probably be forgotten, like happened with so many other promising youngsters. Fran Merida, Frimpong, even Coquelin was on his way out, until we desperately needed a DM.
I feel sorry for promising youngsters being bought by big clubs only for PR reasons. Look at Martin Oodegard who signed for Real Madrid and Zidane was forced to take him on tour. The youngest ever player to score a goal at an Euro qualifier will probably find it hard to find a club that would take him, due to his spoiled salary at the age of 16 and his zero game time.
But back to Arsenal, Joel Campbell has been told to find a new club. This is such sad news for me. He was one of our better players in the second half of our spectacular failure once again and now he’s told to move on? Why don’t we move Theo on instead for some profit and give Joel another chance. We gave players like Denilson and Song a few happy years, now we’d ship out a good working horse?
Our stables needs enhancement. We’ve only brought Xhaka who looks with a real chance to play some games, but you wonder if he’d be a regular. El Neny – Xhaka in midfield? I’ll give it a shot, but what happens to Ramsey? On the right wing? Is Coquelin going to lose his spot? And of course there’s Jack Wilshere, but we don’t need to worry, cause he’ll be injured 5 games into the season and he’d likely miss the rest of it.
If we had a twenty goal a season striker in front of Alexis and Ozil we’d be 5 – 10 points higher up the table. Put 65 million for Higuain and let’s see if Napoli would consider. Table the same offer for Aubameyang too. If we let another season go by hoping that players would come good after they haven’t in so many years, we’re in serious trouble. We have Arsene in charge though, so I wouldn’t count another year going by in moving absolutely nowhere.
It’s the last year of a much undeserved 3 year extension. The only worst thing is the rumours of another 3 coming his way and this rumour is one I can easily believe in. Can’t you move over to managing England Arsene?
That’s enough from me, see you in the comments.
