Is this One Man a reason to believe current crop of new players are different from the rest?
Midway through the transfer window and we haven’t had any ‘big name’ signing that all Arsenal fans want to compete with our ever-strengthening rivals. With the Manchester clubs, Chelsea, Liverpool and even the Spuds getting business done, Mr.Wenger still seems to be looking for players of the future. But just maybe, this crop of players will affect the first team now for the better because of one man, Ben Wrigglesworth.
Most of us have forgotten Ben, but he was the man who helped to discover Riyad Mahrez and Kante at Leicester, who ended up being Champions. If we had bought these players before Leicester, every Arsenal fan would be ‘who the hell is he’, ‘wenger needs to go’, ‘we need world class players’, but they turned out pretty darned good.
After luring Ben from Leicester in February, maybe Asano, Holding are players he discovered, and who will be world class stars under Arsenal, after all he did find Mahrez and Kante. So lets not judge these poor blocks so early and give them a chance, they might prove us all wrong.
However, Wenger and Ben still need to find us a proven goal scorer, to give Arsenal some goals, as well as a centerback, and get rid of players such as Walcott, and Debuchy. But for now welcome Holding, and I hope this isn’t the last time we welcome someone to the Emirates this summer
