Are Arsenal too slow to Act? By Galen
Having read the comments from most Arsenal fans across the globe from Asia, Africa, USA, Latin America and of course our UK fan base, the big topic is should we start panicking? Truth be told I will be deceitful If I said I wasn’t worried by the situation surrounding our rivals.
A few weeks ago every article was about Morgan Schneiderlin and suddenly some fans are saying he is not good enough. I think that we need to learn to be good losers and not say opposition players are overrated. I read people saying Bastian Schweinsteiger is past it at the age of 30. Really? We have Flamini and Arteta in our squad and we are making jokes about one of the greatest central midfielders of this generation. I honestly wanted us to make our signings before the plane departs for our Asian tour but that doesn’t seem to be the case. Man United made 3 good signings in 2 days just in time for the tour.
The Manchester United manager thinks the transfer window is too long “I find it ridiculous that the period closes so late. For managers this period is the most difficult time. I wanted my targets identified before we go on pre season tour.”
So why has Arsenal not signed more players? Mr Wenger said upon landing in Singapore. “That doesn’t depend only on us, it depends on whether we can find them, but if we can find one or two players we will do it.”
A part of me is saying I should exercise some patience and we are just on the 13th of July, 2015. Another part of me is saying I should be worried because most of the players that were linked to have all signed for different clubs.
Schneiderlin, Imbula, Kondogbia, Dybala, Vietto, Martinez, Mandzukic etc. You now have us linked to the likes of Vidal, Lacazette, Benzema and Reus. Nothing is impossible but I believe this are very difficult players to sign. Should Arsenal fans be worried? Because with the way our rivals are improving we could be fighting tooth and nail with Liverpool and Spurs for 4th position next season. I hope I am wrong.
In the last few days fans have been saying that it is very difficult to improve a team like Arsenal. But I don’t think so. I honestly think it is difficult to improve Bayern Madrid and Barcelona. I am sorry to sound negative but Arsenal are not in that category. When was the last time we finished 2nd in our league? When was the last time we reach the quarter finals of the champions league? Suddenly everyone is making Cech signing to look as if we have signed Messi and Ronaldo. Its incredible how our fans can sometimes get so deluded.
I hope Mr Wenger has a better plans. I hope Jack, Ozil, Theo and Giroud are not like new signings. Because I have read somewhere that they were injured and they will be like new signings. Somebody slap me.
