Transfer News…is it Enough? by Brighton Manyex
Greetings. I am a proud Gooner but at the moment I am NOT satisfied by our transfer activities….unless Unai Emery is trying to prove that Arsene Wenger was finished in his tactics and that he can win even with the same squad…then I am personally preparing myself for another trial and failed season!
Of course there is a positive move or achievement in our acquisitions…But they will not change much of our play of last season….
●Maybe Lucas Torreira is the best move of all as we desperately needed a defensive midfielder….
●Lichtsteiner is ok too as he will be cover to Bellerin.
●Papa Sokratis to me is just like Per Mertesacker. He is ageing and if he is not in the game we are back to our old defence!
Now that we have exhausted our so-said £70m for new signings then whats next? Are we done yet? We have not done justice even if Emery says we are DONE….I feel we always lacked in our Offensive…in that our strikers were always starved of supply of good balls and we ended up using Iwobi and Welbeck as Wingers…if Ramsey and Ozil are not in the mood (as they are moody players) we don’t have any creativity….
●I believe we need another CB (Caglar Soyuncu or Koulibaly)…..We also need another big DM (Steven N’zonzi) in case we are playing teams like Man United. With big midfielders we can have ariel presence and power in the midfield as i can see Torreira being bullied because of his stature, but if they can combine we have stability and we may not need another CB.
●We also need an Attacking Winger desperately…not just a mere young player because we have Reiss Nelson already… We need a galactico, a big name who can be an inspiration to our squad eg Gareth Bale or Dembele… but if we fail to land such household names at least Malcom or Pavon or Zaha can be brought in. Truth being told we must release Danny Welbeck!
Loan some of our youngsters to gain experience and game time…we have old players who are aready in their twilight and are left with only one or 2 seasons eg Petr Cech, Papa Sokratis, Koscielny, Litchsteiner, Mikhitharyan etc…
But nonetheless I was impressed by our 8-0 drubbing of Boreham Wood! Its good when we win ruthlessly…that’s “Arsenal” playing for their fans! Thank you Emery!
