WENGER NEEDS TO GET RID OF INCONSISTENCY! by NO
I will make a very controversial statement; Arsenal are inconsistent because of inconsistent players in the first team squad.
Can Wenger use the winter window to remove the inconsistency from his squad now that the core of the side has formed itself? This he needs to do by biting the bullet and letting some players to go so that he can bring far more consistent players to sustain the title challenge we are currently mounting.
Which players am I talking about?
Ramsey – I know there will be noise over the choice to let this talented player off. He was our Alexis two seasons ago and would score (and kill off big people, haha) pretty important goals when the team was in need for a goal. However, Ramsey is being played out of position and despite him putting in the shift on the right side, he is more a box to box player and loses importance when not played in his best role. Unfortunately Carzola proves a better option next to Coquelin. And Ramsey would fetch a fortune. His replacement would be Karim Bellarabi of Bayer 04 Leverkusen. He will seal the right wing with competence just like Sanchez did the left wing and can be called upon to the central position in case there is the need.
Wilshere – This is another high potential player but he suffers lots of issues with injury (And is adamant he will never change his play to reduce instances of injury), and also blows hot and cold. On his day Wilshere could win a big game and arrogantly feed dust to the best in the world. So I would suggest he goes out on loan to a championship side and put together a run of games injury free. His replacement, – Francisco Román Alarcón Suárez, commonly known as Isco.
Ox-Chamberlain – We all remember a similar player who went almost through the same trajectory as Ox and is finally settling into the side. Theo Walcott is beginning to look like the real deal but unfortunately his body still gives him some injury fears. If Compared to Joel Campbell, who with one match, has managed to show class in scoring, tracking back, giving crosses and winning duels. There is really no justification for Ox to keep Campbell out of the team at the moment. He too should go for a loan outing in the championship to improve his consistency. Or outright Wenger should sell him off. His Replacement – Alex Iwobi.
Welbeck – We transferred him from Manchester United and it is time to help his potential shine through by returning him to lower levels of the premier league. He is a hard worker but he needs to play consistently for a lower premier league team – His statistics are really not reading that well at the moment. Soon his quality will shine through then he can rework his way back to a bigger side. His replacement should be either Cavani or Higuain.
Additions to the squad – Saúl Ñíguez Esclápez, known simply as Saúl from Atletico Madrid would be a welcome addition. Young, already playing in a big league and can fit right in just in case there is injury to either Carzola or Coquelin. Hakan Çalhanoğlu would however be the more expensive and popular option for the same role with the same form of versatility if not more.
Recall Wojciech Szczesny from Roma. We are in need of a quality backup and I have a feeling that Szczesny will be a great keeper once he shares the training with a great keeper like Petr Cech.
With the core of the team in place – Cech, the back four, Coquelin, Cazorla, Sanchez, Ozil, Campbell and Giroud, the new arrivals will bring little disruption to the squad. In fact, this will help Arsenal in the premiership run in, as well as picking up from in the new season seamlessly. The depth of the squad will immediately be broadened. For instance, in case there is any injuries on Sanchez, Conquelin, Carzola Giroud or Ozil, with the new arrivals, there will be more than enough to carry on where the injured players left off, especially in the EPL and the FA Cup Many of these players will be Cup tied). Giving players deserved rest during the heat of the season will also be possible without fears that the quality will go very low.
Do you think Arsene Wenger would be open to these changes, and would these changes deliver the elusive titles to Arsenal, starting with the Premiership?
