I find it quite amazing that Arsene Wenger is complaining that this transfer window is the worst that Arsenal have had to endure since his arrival, and he explained why in today’s press conference. He said: “We of course play the semi-final next week and after we have the Europa League as well, which is another target, so we have to very quickly get over this transfer period because for us especially this period has been more disturbing than ever. Why?
“Because we have big players that are at the end of their contract and that is the first time that it happens, that we have such influential players close to the end of their contracts and it has been more destabilising than ever.”
Arsenal have had a very bad set of results since the end of December, in fact we haven’t won any of last five games, and it seems that he is blaming this “disturbing” transfer window.
Well, perhaps he should have thought of that when he let three of his best players get into the last year of their contracts, and tried to persuade us all that this would be the best for the club? Everybody knew that it was obvious that Alexis Sanchez was desperate to leave in the summer and he made little contribution to the Arsenal team until December, when this current window was approaching, so we have had a disrupting influence in the squad all season.
Could this have contributed to us being down as low as 6th in the Premier League? I think it certainly has, and as far as I am concerned there is only one person to blame for this fiasco, not to mention costing Arsenal tens of millions in lost transfer fees.
Who do you think I could be talking about?
