When you consider where Arsenal was at the start of the summer transfer window then you would have to conclude that overall the club had a very good transfer window, however, it was not quite perfect.
That Shkodran Mustafi is still at the club and not only that, named in the Premier League squad is disheartening and then you add in the acquisition of David Luiz and you get a double dose of depression.
But we could at least take some comfort from the fact that he would not be allowed anywhere near the first team again and then you find out his replacement is none other than calamity Luiz.
And there is the huge flaw in the Arsenal transfer window, failing to resolve the overriding problem at the centre of the defence.
There is the January transfer window to look forward to and hopefully, moves will be made to bring in a proper top quality centre half, not one that is a massive liability who is well past his sell-by date and certainly not one that is then loaned back to the selling club.
I do not want to be too harsh on the board, they did do a very good job overall but there is no point in denying that the weakest area in the team was not addressed, well, not adequately.
