In support of Arsene Wenger by Sam P
I understand the frustration of a lot of Arsenal fans, I really do. Personally I was hoping that the manager had an ace up his sleeve and would pull off another last minute transfer coup, but as we know that did not happen and the fans are fuming.
But hold on a minute, who could Wenger have signed realistically? Not a single one of those players that were signed in the last few days would have got in the Arsenal team, so what would be the point in paying good money for them? Even the likes of Pedro and Benteke I am not sure about.
I don’t think Pedro is better than Walcott and I don’t think Benteke is better than Giroud and neither does Wenger and that is why he kept Arsenal’s money in the bank. The one player he did sign, Petr Cech, is a great signing and apart from his disappointing debut, the keeper is already proving his worth and proving Wenger right.
It is easy to mock what Wenger says about team spirit and consistency, especially Arsenal are a big club with big ambitions, but when a club like Bournemouth or Swansea punches above their weight and achieves great things because of that same spirit, we applaud them.
The fact is that Wenger is our manager and there is a long way to go and a lot of things yet to happen this season. How about we stop moaning about the transfer window and start getting behind the team? Just saying like….
