One of the major criticism leveled at Arsenal and Arsene Wenger´s transfer policy on Monday night by Gary Neville was the same issue that a vast majority of us fans have been left frustrated by for many years, namely the Defensive Midfield debate.
On the face of it you would put Arsenal´s trip to face Newcastle United in the early kick-off down as three points in the bank for the Gunners. Not only do we have a fantastic record against the Magpies in recent years, with seven wins and two draws from the last nine meetings, but Newcastle´s record at home in 2015 is pretty shocking as well, with just two wins.
Do Arsenal have the worst fans in the League? by JH
Three games have been played so far this year, which means that 5 games ago we won the FA cup for a record 12th time.
Now in our first three games this season we have been less than impressive. Leading to the majority on this site to call for Wengers head. After 3 games, in fact, after 1 loss.
I know that Arsene Wenger´s comments about waiting to see if anything turns up in the transfer market over the next five days have really wound up some Arsenal fans, with the understandable reaction that the manager should be doing a lot more, but I think they are missing the point.
If he had a pound for every time he was criticized, Arsene Wenger would be richer than Manchester City! Pun aside, Wenger does evoke strong reaction from his naysayers every time he says or does something.
Arsenal close to blowing it already!!! by DN
When I say that the season could be over for Arsenal as early as Saturday I mean, of course, our hopes of winning the Premier League again, the trophy that we last lifted after going a whole season without losing a single league game in 2003-04.

The Mysterious and baffling case of Arsene Wenger by Dan
I am tired of Arsene Wenger, as tired as the Arsenal manager himself looks most days sitting pitch side no doubt. As it can’t be argued that he hasn’t given his all for the club, no matter how you view him. But I fear, time and the monopolistic power he acquired with the early years of success has affected his reasoning and consequently his ability to take our great club forward.
