It was pretty baffling as well as incredibly frustrating for Arsenal fans to see our team struggle at the start of the season, especially as they had given us every reason to think that Arsenal were really ready to take on the big spending Premier League clubs and beat then all to the title.
Why Arsene has a lot to do before he can consider buying any more players. by DW
Pre-season training will be in full swing over the next couple of weeks as we build up for another hard fought campaign. While Gooners everywhere will be eagerly awaiting the next big name through the Emirates doors. It may be worth considering some of the issues Arsene will be facing before he plunges back into the market for new outfield players.
The first team Gunners kick-started their efforts to start gearing themselves for the new season ahead.
Whether this means that Arsene Wenger is seriously considering using this Brazilian forward in the Arsenal first team, we will have to wait and see. But we do know that Wellington Silva is finally able to get his playing career with the Gunners underway, after finally being granted a UK work permit, a mere four years after we signed him from the Brazilian club Fluminense.
It is impossible to say just yet, as there are still 11 games for Arsenal to play in the Premier League, but so far it looks like our Spanish midfield maestro Santi Cazorla is in with a chance of getting the PFA PLayer of the Year award this season.
Arsenal’s defensive shortages have yet again been highlighted by Calum Chambers sending off at Galatasary this week leaving them even shorter on numbers for the Newcastle game this weekend.
The young Brazilian Wellington Silva has been an Arsenal player for nearly five years but has only played (and scored) in one reserve match – against Man United back in 2010 – but has subsequently been out on loan in Spain ever since. But now he is 21 years old and playing for Almeria in La Liga, and with his EU passport on its way he is hoping to get a chance with his parent club in the near future.
Right then Arsenal fans, is your glass half full of half empty? Do you think the Gunners blew a brilliant chance to win the Premier League, or are you happy that we picked up the FA cup to end the trophy drought? Whichever is the overriding feeling for each Gooner, we probably agree on one thing, that we want more success next season, preferably the title or Champions League.
