Kevin Campbell says Edu has opened himself up to criticism after a quiet January

Former Arsenal star, Kevin Campbell maintains Arsenal needed to make new signings in the last transfer window.

Their failure to do so has left technical director, Edu open to questioning by the club’s fans.

The Gunners were in good form in the first half of the season, but they have started the second goal-shy.

That should be enough reason to splash the cash in that transfer window, but it never happened.

Campbell insists there are holes in the squad that needed to be sealed and now it is gaping after the recent departures.

He tells Football Insider: “Arsenal had holes before all of the players left and went out on loan. Now there is gaping holes. Those holes needed filling.

“To not fill any, Edu has left himself wide open to criticism. It is part and parcel of the course.”

Just Arsenal Opinion

Some fans would find it unthinkable that Arsenal went through the January transfer window without buying a top player.

Sometimes it doesn’t make sense to rush into the market for reinforcements midway through a campaign.

However, we are in a serious battle for a European place and our squad had shown they needed help from new players.

Hopefully, the team would not end the campaign in a poor position after the recent progress.

  1. We need to stop pointing fingers at the wrong guy.
    Edu is powerless; he is just the pawn. If we aren’t careful, they will gladly fire Edu to convince us the problem is solved. The fish rots from the head.


    1. Arteta is to blame. If he says this player is going nowhere, surely that player goes nowhere. In this scenario he was giving the nod and even banishing players from the club.

  2. I do not think that it is wise to be rushing into signings.
    This team has been performing in the absence of Auba. In his absence, there was passion and energy to do well until players began to travel for Afcon, Injuries and suspension crept in. It is true that we lack the depth but the qualities we have on the bench are not good enough and they have not been playing because there is not competition that will be featured. The best thing to do is let them go.
    Since the absence of Auba, the boys have been playing with passion and different frenzy that Liverpool became afraid and asked for postponement of our game against them. If they had played that game with the momentum arsenal was in, arsenal may still have been playing in caraba cup.
    It is time to support the team and rally behind them. Pepe is back. Partey too us back. Martinelli can play central striker. Saka, smith Rowe and pepe can play from the left frank. Martinelli can play from the right flank as well as pepe and Saka. With the qualities we have and given absence of participation in any other tournaments would give the boys the attention to focus solely on finishing well in the league.
    I like the decision taken by the club and they made efforts to sign better replacement but transfer window is usually tripartite affairs involving- the buying club, the player and his agent and the selling club.

  3. Sign D. Costa for 6 months with a year extension option or even 18 months with readonable salary, I am sure we can pay more than his former Brazilian club without breaking the bank. He can’t gave gone that bad that quickly.
    At the end of the season even Lacca and Eddie would leave, which leaves us with 0 senior strikers (unless you count Balogun), which makes bringing a striker with fair price almost impossible.
    Every club will know we are in desperate need for one.
