In the press conference the other day before Arsenal travelled to Leicester, there were understandably a lot of questions about the transfer business that the club might do before tonight. And Arsene Wenger talked about it being like a poker game and suggested that there would be a lot going on behind the scenes.
But he also spoke about people having opinions and them often being wrong. Something like it is the easiest thing in the world to have an opinion. And the Frenchman is always talking about not bringing in players just for the sake of it and almost ridiculing the use of the transfer market to solve problems.
But isn’t that what it is there for? And when you get a long term injury not long before the end of one, shouldn’t you think yourself lucky and take the opportunity? And most people thought Arsenal needed another striker before Giroud got injured. As far as I know, Arsenal have got plenty of money left to spend, so I am struggling to understand why we don’t spend it. It seems to me that the Prof does not like being told which players he needs, but would he really be that stubborn to not sign a player we need to prove a point.
At the same time, it is Wenger who has kept us in the Champions League for 17 years through good times and bad and we are just coming out of the bad. I do hope that he proves me wrong with a three player splurge today or just wins us the title with Sanogo!!
