A big few days for Arsenal by Sean O’Hara
As we have seen so far from Arsenal on and off the pitch, it has not really been the change we were all expecting and promised. Yes we bought a striker in Lacazette for £52m & a Left Back in Kolasnic at the start of the window to give the fans hope of a new approach to the transfer market – but somehow nothing else has happened bar a lot of smoke about Lemar coming & players leaving as our squad is too big!
Jenkinson/Bannecar have left on loan and it now looks like Gibbs is heading to Watford in a £12.5m deal which frees up 3 places in the squad… a few more could leave, as in Ox, Mustafi & Sanchez, along with a few fringe like Debuchy & Lucas could all leave and where will we be then as we would need a lot of signings in just five days?
It doesn’t look too good as we don’t look close to signing anyone! We need a new keeper also in all these players needing signed. Cech is past it & prone to mistakes these days! New CB also needed as Gabriel is & Mustafi could be gone, LB is sorted, Bellerin definitely needs some competition at right back.
New DM/CM: Coq & Santi are injured, Eleney is not good enough, Jack needs games… Xhaka/Rambo is all we really have. AM we have Ozil… again not great.
RW & LW: Ox & Lucas leaving, Alexis could still go. Leaves us with Theo, Iwobi & Welbz.
ST: Lacazette & Giroud
This is a joke folks. We need a Top GK, Backup RB (Jenkinson and the Ox gone?), Top CB, Top DM, Top Winger even if Alexis stays to replace Ox, maybe 2 if Sanchez goes also.
After Gibbs leaves today, net spend 12m. This is a shambles for Arsenal.
Are we going to make a statement & sign 3/4 players that we actually need or make 1 signing that’s a luxury & we will continue to decline as a club under Woeful Wenger?
I will always support Arsenal, but this is hard to watch as we fall further away from the top table of English football… as for European football we are nowhere near that top table, laughing stock of Europe. The toxic atmosphere is already bubbling at the Emirates, lose against Liverpool & its explodes!
