The Premier League season is finally over, and the rumour mill is kicking up some dust already, so we thought we’d take a look at our potential starting XI, should such rumours prove to be true…
Well Gooners it the last game of the season at Home versus a relegated Aston Villa, and then its on to silly season regarding Arsenal being linked to every player in the transfer window as per every year. A win here is near undoubtable for Arsenal and also, hopefully, a relegated Newcastle playing for pride, who already won at WHL this season, can do us a favour and beat Spurs, so we can at least have something to cheer us up because this season was an absolute disappointment…
\it is being reported that the powers that be behind the scenes at Arsenal FC have been listening to the complaints from a growing number of Arsenal fans and have begun to agree with the increasingly angry calls for Arsene Wenger to start spending the same sort of money as the other big clubs in the Premier League and Europe.
Striker or bust for Arsenal!! by JH
One of very few things Arsenal fans can agree on is that we need a world class striker, following the days of Wright, Henry, Van Persie, Giroud simply just doesn’t cut it. I believe a world class striker would have scored at least two vs Liverpool. Giroud managed none….
I am going to assume, perhaps foolishly, that Arsene Wenger is not just sitting on his hands with regards to adding to the Arsenal squad in this summer transfer window. I like the fact that he has confidence in the players available to him but surely the Frenchman must see that another quality player or two would significantly increase our chances of winning the Premier League title next May.
Arsenal Con Job by DS
There have been some ridiculous things said about Gonzalo Higuain, one of the strikers that has been the subject of many Arsenal transfer rumours this summer, by the president of his Serie A club Napoli. Aurelio De Laurentiis does not seem to be able to help himself either, as he is in the papers again this week saying that he will not allow Higuain to leave for any less than his wild valuation of something like £65 million.
The striker situation at Arsenal has already been the matter of quite a bit of debate, for us fans and for those paid to talk about football and the Premier League. The problem is certainly not of the numerical variety, because even if Joel Campbell joins Lukas Podolski out the Emirates exit door, we would still have plenty of options.
