The 11 fire fighters. By Galen Sona
Are Arsenal ruthless enough in the transfer market? Is it difficult to find players that can make Arsenal better? Do we need another Striker? Do we need a defensive midfielder? Do Arsenal really want to win the league? Is Cech the only signing? What is going on at Arsenal?
In the last 2 weeks we have asked ourselves loads of questions. Every football manager has got what I call an “A Team”. This are 11 trusted firemen that the manager trust to do the job. When ever there is a crisis, the manager will turn to these 11 men to do the job. Mr Wenger, like most managers, clearly has an ‘A team’. Is our ‘A team’ good enough to win the league? Can our A team be improved? Who are these XI fire fighters?
I believe we shall see a lot of this combination than any other combination this season. The players have a great understanding on the pitch. There are loads of questions to be answered regarding our A team. I personally believe that this team cannot win the league. I think we are short of 2 or 3 players.
1) Ramsey vs Ox? Ox is a natural wide player, and I think he is the most inform player at the moment. But the manager has clearly reverted to his A team. Which mean Ox misses out?
2) Per vs Paulista? May be I am not just a fan of Per. Paulista any day any time?
3) Is Cazorla, Ozil and Coquelin balanced enough? Can we beat the big teams with such a combination? I mean the big teams in the Champions league. Not Sunderland or Spurs.
4) Is there no striker in the Market better than Giroud?
5) What about the DM?
Mr Wenger clearly got his A team. Can this team win the league? its very hard to improve Barcelona. Pedro had to run away. Is hard to improve teams like Real Madrid and Bayern. Look at City Chelsea and United assaulting the market.
Is it hard to improve Arsenal? Not really.
