Despite spending absolute fortunes in the last transfer window, Arsenal have performed much worse this season than in any previous season under Arsene Wenger. Earlier in this campaign Wenger was bold enough to compare this current squad to the Invincibles, and in fact suggested they could be even better.
That has proved to be completely wrong and Le Prof has now publicly stated that there are ‘flaws and weaknesses’ in the side and has admitted that the Gunners need improving. Personally I reckon Wenger would need to win quite a few jackpots on Insta Casino to even come close to rebuilding the team! Anyway, this is what Le Prof said yesterday on Sky Sports: ‘It’s a strange season because we played 20 games unbeaten, but I cannot sit here and say we have no flaws in our team, because we have,’
‘It (the squad) is a very strong basis, but the team needs to be strengthened, of course.’
I do actually think that the squad is a massive improvement on last season, but of course there is something missing that seems to to affect them when they get too close to the top of the League. They lose confidence easily and seem to develop a “losing mentality” every February and start dropping down the table. This has been happening for the last ten years and seems to be getting worse not better, no matter which players he brings in.
It is difficult even to see where he can strengthen. We have two supposedly top keepers, we brought in two great defenders last summer. We have hundreds of midfielders and don’t even count how many forwards we have.
What positions do you think need improving, or is it a simple case of a loss of motivation in the team….
