Arsene Wenger has got just two days left to add to his Arsenal squad before the transfer window slams shut – until the winter one opens in January. And those players that we have by then are expected to try to win a fairly tough Champions League group and be serious contenders for the Premier League title. I think we need more.
I understand that Wenger has strengthened from last season, when only bad luck and injuries, in my opinion, stopped the Gunners from becoming champions. I also don’t think that we need to worry about the threat from Liverpool as much, while Man United are still a mess and Man City no stronger.
But it only takes one team to finish above you in the league for you to not win it and at the moment it looks like Chelsea are the team to beat. Their new signings seem to have settled in a treat (DAMN) and the lack of goal power that cost them dearly last season seems a thing of the past.
Arsenal, on the other hand, still have a couple of our own problems to address. Hopefully the rumours about us signing Carvalho for the DM position are true, because that is one of the problems. But I also think we cannot afford not to cover for the injured Giroud. And as Wenger says, there is no point just bringing in another player who is no better than what we have, so this proposed £20m loan deal for Falcao is perfect and would, I think, see Arsenal go toe to toe with Chelski. What do you think?
