Arsenal do NOT need big changes! by Sam P
The season so far has been a disappointing one for Arsenal fans, but do not think that Arsene Wenger and the players are any happier than the rest of us. After last season and with some good business done in the summer transfer market, we all expected the Gunners to be challenging for top spot in the Premier League at the very least.
It has not happened for various reasons. Everything going right for Chelsea is one and do not make the mistake of ignoring the damage that a horrendous and continuous run of injury problems have inflicted on us. But what’s done is done and Wenger needs to make sure that we finish the season as strongly as possible.
A lot of Arsenal fans are understandably hoping that the Frenchman uses the January transfer window to fix the problems but I do not see it that way. The only big mistake that Wenger made, in my opinion, during the summer window was his failure to sign another central defender and as long as he puts that right in the next 10 days, we should be fine.
No manager can plan for nearly 10 players missing every week, the squad sizes do not allow it in any case. What the boss really needs to do is use this bad luck to foster a real team togetherness and that is what I think he is doing and what produced the stunning team display at Man City last weekend.
We already have the players, but if those players give it their all for the rest of the season, it will be like a different team and one that could beat anybody. Don’t panic, believe in yourselves and go out and play. Simples!
