Why sign Andre Gomes? by Robnet
Making more than four signings in a single transfer window may cause instability in a team. So far, Arsenal have not only made five signings but have also just moved out of their comfort zone and taken a bold step to bring in a new manager, Unai Emery. He himself recently admitted that together with his team, they have to first of all know the players, the players also have to know these new arrivals well which will definitely take some time.
Already in the middle of the park we have very good players, Aaron Ramsey, Granit Xhaka, Matteo Guendouzi, Jeff Reine-Adelaide, Maitland-Niles, Lucas Torreira, Mesut Ozil and Mohamed Elneny. But Unai Emery still asked Calum Chambers to train as a midfielder. If Unai is surely the best choice Arsenal had to make, he should guide these talents into world class players.
So many teams even in the premier league have struggled after changing managers. Take for instance Manchester City, one of the best coaches signed with them but for a season, they tumbled and misfired – yet in the next season, they steadied and set record points in the premier league.
For now Unai Emery has to work on the mentality of these players until they can deliver to his standards, while the fans will have to give this team time to settle before we talk of more signings and replacements.
