So just who is `right` for Arsenal then Wenger?

Don’t worry Arsenal fans, Arsene Wenger is not just sitting on his hands while rival teams snap up players like Demba Ba, Lewis Holtby and Daniel Sturridge. Arsenal are like a cheetah on the African savannah, lying in wait, coiled like a spring ready to pounce. Any old antelope won’t do, however. We are waiting for the juiciest, most succulent prey to come along. The only problem is, we might starve to death before that happens.

“We are on the market, and if we find the right players we will do something.”

In the last window we were told something similar about `top, top players`, but surely the squad needs shoring up. Even if Wenger thinks the players he has are good enough, he must plan for injuries, surely. We have let one centre back go (Djourou) and are close to getting rid of another in Squillachi. That is good news but leaves us with no cover. The same goes for Bendtner and Chamakh.

So just what does Wenger think of as the right player? He plays Gervinho, so surely there must be players out there, in our price range, who can at least match the prowess of the Ivorian. He turned down a bid for Andre Santos recently, but he has been stunningly awful in an Arsenal shirt this season, no wonder he wanted to give it away.

Wenger has come through for us before with transfers, and he still has over three weeks to go, but I wish he would get a move on. Learn from your mistakes, Prof, and get some new blood in the team.

    the deadwoods are really creating problems to arsenal at the moment. here is a list of players who have been terrible at arsenal and have been paid a lot:
    1. denilson 50,000 per week loaned out
    2. park 40,000 per week
    3. squillaci 45,000 per week
    4. bendtner 50,000 per week
    5. arshavin 70,000 per week
    6. chamakh 50,000 per week
    7. djourou 45,000 per week
    8. fabianski 40,00 per week
    9. diaby 50,000 per week ( injured all time)
    10. rosicky 60,000 per week (injured all time)
    11. santos 50,000 per week ( very poor defender)
    these players have hardly played any matches for arsenal this season. these players earn 550,000 per week in total for doing absolutely nothing.

    if im critical of the squad-which arsenal should be- i would say we need a new starting LB until Gibbs matures (Contrao or Baines). we REALLY need a new CDM (M’vila or Strootman). then we need to get sagna back on form or drop him for Jenkinson, get theo signed up. then we either need a world class ST (Cavani, Lewandowski) or a world class winger (Goetze, Rodriguez, sanchez, navas) and a new young winger competing for first XL (Zaha). and a new 4th CB

    Unfortunately, this is the best Arsene can offer. His performance has been diminishing steadily.

    no it means not being bullied by others from keeping vanpersie and co at the club, it means when we want a player and his release clause is 15m we sign him instead of offering 10m (Adrian Lopez), it means a manager is pressured to compete for football trophies and not balancing the books, it means ticket prices will finally reflect the standing of the club, it means when we have the occasional flops we don’t mind selling them cut price instead of asking for top price, it means arsenal is back to a footballing club of passion rather than money and most importantly it means arsenal can F*cking compete

    “how much do average joes earn” nowhere near that but do we have photographers hounding us at our doorstep and watching us take showers, have we sacrificed time, effort, our bodies, our diets and money to become footballers, NO so why on earth should we deserve their rewards, how much do celebrities earn for doing squat? Some people make 20m a year off one movie while football players have to work up to 3 times for games and almost everyday for training, they have to risk injury and risk precious family time to make 7m a year, and they have to change their proffesion cause they have to retire at the age of 40 and they still have to go through the publicity movie stars do even though celebrities retire at the age of 70, BY THE WAY WHAT THE F*CK DOES THAT HAVE TO DO WITH ARSENAL

    if a price is 100million doesnt mean Arsenal has to meet it…

    i do understand that they risk and their family time and injury

    but 250k a week?? 100k a week?? they are millionaire multiple times

    even 20k per week makes you a millionaire in 1 year

    How many times have we ever gone for the big fish in the pond? Think about it, every transfer window we all get wound up and think we are in for top players. Never happens…. Last marquee signing was Arshavin, how many windows ago? We then ruined him by not playing him in his natural position. Expect more of nothing and to be disappointed again. The window closes in 3 weeks. Wenger dithers and dithers and loses out.

    It’s unbelievable that all the deadwood is not off the books this window but only on loan. If we had managed to sell Arshavin, Denilson, Bendtner, Chamakh, Squillaci, Djourou, Park and Santos this window I would think that was the best piece of business this club has done in years.

    But they are all still on the books. Thats north of 400k per week. That would pay for 4 top players at 100k per week. Its a shocking mess at the club.

    Our main goal has to be, teaching only players that identify themselves with arsenal club. AW made some
    mistakes therefor in recent years and he has learned from
    it. Now he preferrs an englisch player, and not a french or
    other, like it was for many years.
    Second part of our strategy has to be paying right wages to our top players. if they earn here as much as in manchester, barcelona or chelski, they wont move away from
    us.
    theese two steps aw has already made and is heading to
    the final step: Pay the same for our targets as other
    big clubs do. I am confident, that also this will start
    in the actual transferwindow.

    aw knows the answer and he’s got it already.

    But truth be told Wenger has had probably reached his max output for Arsenal all these years(and thank you, Mr Wenger honestly). Since then it is obvious the boss has turned his interest as the manager to an accountant. Perhaps this is not his decision alone but with the helping ‘push’ from the investing Board!
    “I will go into the market if the ‘right’ players come along”, or ” I may buy one or two players, but …..!”. Do these statements sound familiar to the fans during every transfer window? It will be a ‘black’ day the day Arsenal does not qualify for the European Championship. Period.Sad and abjected.

    The comment he made about ”I’ll buy Messi and everyone will be happy” was a sarcastic one to a journalist, but it actually annoyed me. Fans want to know what his plans are as we are in the shit and falling way behind. To make a comment like that had the feel of ”Let them eat cake”.

We know for sure Arsene Wenger is looking for cheap,good and young players at a low price to fit well with the board’s priority.

Please watch Arsenal games properly before you make yourself appear galactically stupid.

    Initially when I compared Biglia to MVila, I thought the latter would offer us more steel, but now I can understand why Wenger wants a DM that can dribble and push the ball forward like Biglia. Biglia might not be physically built as Mvila, but he is still a great tackler and actually makes better passing decisions. I think Wenger is trying to fill the void left by Song. Arteta is too safe of a passer and so is Merts. We need someone at the back that is confident to make quick direct passes to get the ball forward. Biglia’s movement is sharp and clever. He knows when to risk going forward and knows when to stay back. He is a typical box-to-box midfielder. I also like his tenacity to win the ball back.

    I believe we lack creativity from the back when we have possession. Rosicky, Song and Diaby are very good at pushing the ball forward and building momentum from the back. Arsenal has struggled to make incisive passes from midfield, so Biglia would fit the team nicely. He could also give Wilshere and Arteta rest when needed. Both Biglia and Mvila are about the same price. I’ll be over the moon if we can get them both but I highly doubt it. Wenger has been after Biglia for a while now. At 26 he offers more maturity than M’vila, and there’s less risk dealing with attitudinal problems than in the Frenchman. Also the Argentine is a captain at Anderlecht so there’s more leadership on the pitch. We need more of this.

    Arsenal players are good when they are in top form. Generally, they are not good enough clinically to put the ball into the net as seen many of their games recently.If they can’t beat the low ranking teams in EPL, what the fans can expect of them to hopefully win the FA cup leaving the EPL and champion league aside. They can keep dreaming when technically Arsenal is much better than others. Another year without a trophy to keep the fans down hearted.

    @johnverdal – Your overall point is valid as must fans agree but I think you have gone too far with the list.

    1. Rosicky: Is healthy, ready to play, and needed. He is creative, energetic and experienced. He replaced Ramsey in early Feb 12 and the struggling gunners won 7 in a row. The problem is Wenger prefers the much weaker Ramsey – not Rosicky’s fault.

    2. Arshavin: He is still one of the best Arsenal have at coming into a game and providing service for a needed goal. He has played well this year but, again, Wenger prefers to select his love child over experienced talent. Wenger is the problem here also.

    You are mostly right. There is not doubt that Arsenal have a huge deadwood issue. And more than a half dozen players are so bad Wenger goes deep into the reserves before selecting any of them. Big waste of cash.

    @Malik – I support your right to suggest that many fans are far less than informed or intelligent. But to say that such fans are “poisons who kill the club,” well, that is overstating it I think. Unless there are huge numbers of such fans, what significant negative impact can they actually have?

    Why do people keep mentioning Zaha, he is basically a young Gervinho and we already have the Ox, even though he has struggled for form this season, he is much more promising

    @johnverdal: Ramses the Terrible is playing each week but not because he has had any significant positive impact or because his play helps the team to any measurable degree.. And he certainly he performs consistently at a lower level than Arshavin, Rosicky, and Chamack. Does he not deserve a spot on your list then?

    By the way, I think Denilson should go also but I think he has been given a bad rap. He struggled in one season when Arsenal still had far better players overall. Compared to the midfield backups of today (Ramsey), Denilson is a much better performer. When is the last time most gooners have seen him play?

    Some players just get in bad favor with the coach, often for a valid reason, but they are then completely tossed aside and many fans just assume they must be weak performers. Not always true.

    @ripple You are right. Rosicky is the most underrated player at Arsenal. He was the best Arsenal player in the 2nd half of last season. Whenever he is out there, he gives his 100% and will be the best player.

    @johnverdal So Ramsey is better than Rosicky? May be because he is British. I can’t see any other reason for that. I am sure when footballing ability is considered Rosicky is 1000 times better than Ramsey

    Ramsey is a work horse and we need him. Granted he is not messi , or even close. But he is versatile, willing to run his socks off and he has heart. ala Wilshere.

    Ramsey will come good. ( Remember I said it first )

    I am having a hard time believing that AW has lost all competitiveness & refuses to sign the players we need. Can anyone tell me if there is evidence to prove that he is doing anything more than taking the wrap for Gazidis&Kroenkes lack of spending? I was under the impression that Gazidis had the final decision if and who we signed?Please answer my question rather than abusing me for asking a question.

    Quote!!! “Wenger has come through for us before with transfers” apart from carzola who has he brought that proved to be great in recent years!

    It really makes me sick hearing this kinda of delusional nonsence!

    in the recent years we struggle to beat the lower teams and we hardly get a sniff with the bigger teams

    but carry on pretending like the players we have are world class..where were your world class player in the recent game again BRADFORD ffs!

    Yeah we manage to get in the top 4 but we’re usually bucket loads of point behind the top 3

    I WANT MORE DOOM AND GLOOM NOT UNREALISTIC BULLSH*T HAHA

    Guys,

    Our wonderful team , has been linked with almost every player out there in the last 2-3 weeks. Its becoming a joke. We all have our opinion about what we can do to strengthen our team, but we need to be patient, and hope Wenger pulls another great one.

    Gunners for ever

    Who is right for Arsenal and who we will sign (i.e an unknown or no one) are two very different things.

    If we want to win things again then:
    1- Falcao
    2- Mats Hummels
    3- Move Vermalen to CDM
    4- Get Santi on the left wing, or Di Maria
    5- Christiano Ronaldo, yep Christiano Ronaldo. If he wants to come back to the prem lets not miss out on him twice in his career. Dont care what anyone says he is WORLD CLASS

    Is it just me or do Arsenal not even play good football anymore? We used to be the best footballing team going, great passing and movement and one touch through balls. We could also counter attack with real pace, quickly and dangerously. It has to be said that the reason we’re not like that anymore is because we just don’t have the quality there. We still try to play the fancy football and passing but we never create anything. It’s getting to the point where it’s actually boring to watch. Very frustrating. I will always love Arsenal though.
