Smart dealing or just Complacency at Arsenal

arsene-wenger spend

It’s nine days to the start of the Premier league season and 27 days before the transfer window closes and I still can’t say I am clued up on what Arsene’s plan is for the season. There is a pressing need for an experienced central defender and a forward but the fans are none the wiser on who the club intends to sign. As I have said in previous posts I have attained the state of zen when it comes to Arsenal transfers but it just doesn’t make sense to me that with the most competitive season in view Arsene and the club are gambling on playing catch up. Arsenal’s first three fixtures of the season are tricky with a home game against Liverpool and two away games against Leicester and Watford. It will be foolish to risk Arsenal fans getting on the backs of the team and the manager so soon because of poor results which will be linked to lack of team investment.
I am a fan of not paying over the odds for players;  I would never pay 30million pounds for John Stones let alone 50 million pounds neither would I endorse splashing out 100 million pounds on Paul Pogba and most fans aren’t expecting Arsene to do that. The reality is good players are expensive these days and you have to pay the going rate especially when the whole world knows you have the highest cash reserves in addition to playing in the richest league in the world.
It’s not a secret that the Premier League is awash with cash and clubs outside the Premier League doing business with Premier League clubs will want a piece of the action, so Arsee and Ivan should stop going to bid for players with change in a clutch bag under their arms.
It’s getting boring now  with Arsenal and transfers, please find a target and get the job done. I feel buying an experienced defender and a centre forward makes the team competitive but I don’t think it makes Arsenal title contenders as there is still  a fragility that permeates this team a discussion for another post.

  1. I totally agree with you. This has been a completely frustrating window. Where do we go from here as Arsenal Supporters?

    1. Well I am still trying to maintain my stance of trying to see where Arsene is coming from unfortunately I can’t. Hopefully he knows a lot of things we don’t.
