Anyone who has had half an eye on Arsenal Football Club in recent years will not be too surprised that the Gunners did not do a great deal of business in the January transfer window. We also know that the Frenchman is not a big fan of this halfway point and would much rather it was done away with.
And while a lot of Arsenal fans might be thinking that Arsene Wenger has let another chance slip away, I think that the boss will look back on this January transfer window and think that it could hardly have gone better. Why? Because although the Gunners did very little, none of our Premier League rivals did much either.
Which means that essentially it is as you were and with the Arsenal injury situation looking a lot brighter all of a sudden, it is the Gunners that now look in the strongest position for the EPL title run in.
Wenger’s usual talk about the lack of transfer options is normally a source of frustration and possibly a bit of negativity towards the manager but with none of our rivals able to pull off a major deal the pressure is off.
Even better for the Prof is that his one bit of transfer action looked good on his debut. So was this a perfect transfer window for Wenger?
