How typical of Arsenal and our luck is this Gooners? Just as the Gunners are getting over our own injury crisis and are looking to build a decent run of results together, following on from a 2-0 win over Hull City in the FA cup and a 3-0 defeat of Stoke City yesterday, our next Premier League game throws up an away game with the reigning EPL champions.
After a steady but far from brilliant start to the season, Arsenal really need to get going after this international break. But our next two fixtures could not be harder, on paper anyway, with Man City coming to the Emirates on Saturday and the Gunners off to face Borussia Dortmund in Germany just three days later.
A Worrying Summer by Vir
Well, up until this point it’s been an all too quiet transfer season for us, and the frailties in Arsenal’s squad were exposed by Villa (and Anthony Taylor). However, we won’t go into that again, and this article will try and see why the summer has seemed incredibly anti-climactic thus far.
News that’ll surely anger the Arsenal fans by AH
It just doesn’t get any better for fans of Arsenal Football Club does it? A board that has a business minded structure and a manager that is stingier than those that do their weekly shop at poundland, when it comes to transfer windows being an Arsenal fan just isn’t something to get excited about.
Wenger is getting us there by Sam P
I can understand the frustration that has built up over the summer for Arsenal fans, as we have been linked with every player and his dog and then watched most of them sign for other clubs. But I cannot understand why so many Arsenal fans seem to think that Arsene Wenger is deliberately trying to pull the wool over our eyes, and that he is just looking for excuses not to sign any players and to save the club money.
Arsenal rollercoaster ride by Stefan
The mood and opinions of an Arsenal fan seems to change so often, more often than any other football club I can think of. Take this summer for example, we started off in a mixed mood that was mostly good. Some people were a little frustrated that the players were celebrating finishing fourth as if we had won a title. Unfortunately in these times, that is the equivalent to winning a title for us now and it’s like winning the Champions League to the board.
Arsenal may have to rely on youth by Stefan
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has made comments about the club’s young players today and said how they will have a big role to play this season. This sounds to me like a small hint at saying that this summer’s transfer business will be conducted as usual with no £50M strikers or any top, top players incoming.
It is becoming ever more clear this summer that Arsenal are struggling in the transfer market. We have been told that there is money to spend, and I believe there is. The problem seems to be, for Arsene Wenger and the Arsenal board, finding players to spend it on.
