Forget transfers, a winning restart is more important for Arsenal this summer

A winning start should be more important than summer transfer plans for Arsenal when the campaign gets back underway

The Premier League is set to resume in the next few weeks as the spread of the coronavirus slows down to manageable levels.

The competition has been suspended for more than 50 days and Arsenal fans, like the supporters of most teams, have been eager for the team to get back to business.

As Arsenal fans, we have been overwhelmed with news about players that could join us when the transfer window reopens and speculation about how much money Mikel Arteta will have available to spend on potential new acquisitions.

However, what I think is even more important to look forward to is making a winning start when the campaign resumes.

Mikel Arteta has tried to keep his players focused on the task ahead and that is one reason that the Gunners became the first team to allow their players to start outdoor training.

I believe that when the season resumes, teams that have the right mindset of starting just how they wish to go on will have a good advantage, as opposed to those that just want to get the season over with.

If we start with a win, our players will receive a massive confidence boost, however, if we start poorly, the end of the season could quite easily turn into a debacle.

    We do absolutely need transfers. It is important. for starters, we can get back Aaron Ramsey. Buy Thomas Partey and Get one of Thomas Lemar/Nabir Fekir. This will allow Arteta to play Pepe in the Number 10 role since we can move Lemar/Fekir to the flanks

    1. Sarmmie says:

      We can get back who?

      The only player that I’d take back now are Gnabry and Cazorla

    2. Kenny Rolfe says:

      Ramsey was an attacking midfielder who who 37 goals in 250 games in the Premier League over ten years and you want him back. Do me a favour took long enough to get rid of him

    The George Armstrong post has been taken off already yet posts like the victory over West Ham months ago remain, it’s a joke

      KENNY MANY OF US ALREADY KNOW VERY WELL HOW AND WHY THIS SITE OPERATES AS IT DOES. WE ALLNEED TO REMEMBER THAT NEITHER PAT NOR MARTIN ARE RUNNING IT FOR OUR BENEFIT, BUT IT IS THEIR BUSINESS AND BUSINESSES NEED TO MAKE PROFIT.

      THAT MEANS CATERING FOR THEYOUTH GENERATION FAR MORE THAN FOR WE OLDIES. MANY YOUNGSTERS HAVE NOT A CLUE, NOR MUCH EVEN CARE, WHO WEE GEORDIE WAS AND HAVE NOT BOTHERED READING Kens wonderful post or his fine series on the players of yesteryear.

      Most articles on here, carrying adverts and hence site profit cater for thr youth market way over and above us oldies , predominately. But give them something modern like this season and these goldfish like attention (at best) younger generation will leap at it.

      THE REVEAL I SPEAK ABOUT IS THAT REALISATION OF HOW LITTLE MANY OF TODAYS KIDS AND YOUNG ADULTS REALLY CARE ABOUT THE CLUB, VERSUS THE CURRENT TEAM ONLY.

    200% right Jon, when I was a kid my uncle gave me a load of his old books, they were called “Football Champions”, most them all about the winning teams after The Second World War with prominent stories about the 1950’s, starting with Arsenal’s win over Liverpool and our defeat against Newcastle in ’52 where the “News of the World” headline the next day said “Newcastle take the cup, but Arsenal take the honours”, this was after Wally Barnes was taken off after 5 minutes with a broken leg and Arsenal outplayed Newcastle with ten men only to see George Robledo win it for the Magpies with 5 minutes to go. The Mathews Final of ’53 where a Stan Mortenson hat trick won it for seasiders, Ronnie Allen’s penalty win for West Brom and Roy Paul’s Manchester City’s win with Bert Trautman playing on in goal with a broken neck. I couldn’t get enough of football, playing outside till it got dark every minute of every day. Youngsters now haven’t got the same passion for the game as we had Jon, the commercial side has taken over, just one big business, this is why I’ve had enough, exactly what we were talking about the other day. Hope you’re well Jon, stay safe.

      Kenny, You sum up so well the great days of old when the game had heart, soul and honour. Today it is all about money and more money for players and glory for their team of today for the younger fans. Those who see the overall picture are almost always our older and worldly wiser generation . We care for the WHOLE CLUB, not merely the team of today.

      In fact, sad as I am to read that you have had enough, not surprisingly either, I am close very close to not being able to stand the mass financial greed, corruption by owners, constant cheating by players and blaming refs by so many fans. Refs have always made mistakes, as do all humans but refs are not the real problem; the present sick society is the REAL problem.

      I am not prepared to sit by silently while money mad players , money mad owners and selfish football authorities are DETERMINED to finish the season, despite the certain cost of exta lives from this awful disease! I refuse to join this corrupt brigade and can live with my conscience when in bed at night. Can Gordon Taylor and that money mad ilk though? As a betting man I predict that two years from now, I WILL NOT BE EVEN BE REMOTELY INTERESTED IN TODAYS GAME. It is dying in honour and relevance as each day passes.

        Hope you all read Jon’s post. That’s a truthful summing up of the modern game
