It all seems so long ago that Arsenal signed Alexis Sanchez from Barcelona, beating Liverpool into the bargain. We Arsenal fans were really happy and could hold our heads up and even take the mickey out of our Premier League rivals. Well that did not last very long did it?
In fact, that early flush of hope and expectations make this, for me, the most frustrating transfer deadline day ever. At least in recent years we were told that there was hardly any money so when we signed some unheard of player it was not too much of a shock.
What I want to know is what is going to happen to all this so-called money that Arsene Wenger would be spending this summer. Back in the safe Stan? So we are left with the football equivalent of Bambi on ice to fire the Gunners to the top of a very tough Champions League group and keep us in the hunt for the Premier League. Yeah right!
Wenger has passed on plenty of forwards including Balotelli and Remy, only for Chelsea and Liverpool, who already had better strikers than us, to snap them up for peanuts. You cannot tell me that Arsenal could not afford the prices paid for those two. And losing Falcao to Man United this morning just completes the misery. You certainly can’t say that Wellbeck is a better buy than any of the above…
And no defenders or midfielders coming either Arsene? Back in the stocks, Arsenal fans, the laughing stocks. And forget about winning anything this season! Worst window ever? It’s embarrassing…..
