As Arsenal look to improve their squad ahead of the new season what if they fail? Can their current crop end the trophy drought?
Good article amid the rash of doom-mongers. Arsenal have ditched a lot of dead-wood, which needed doing, and the core of the team now is solid. Arsenal's form is excellent. Anyone who thinks AW is "stupid" is, er, stupid. Heh. I'd have loved to see Higuain in the red and white, but so be it. No Suarez - good. Racist cannibals aren't really our thing. And the window hasn't shut yet... Come on the Arse!
This present squad apart from the young French forward (our only transfer this summer!) played like George Graham's teams to achieve 4th place last season but were boring to watch and reflected Bould' s influence rather than Wengers. They were very lucky in some of the final matches and struggled to breakdown teams. The team has no decent reserve GK, has no reserve CH (do not mention Sagna playing there - he is not even a good RB), no proper defensive midfielder ( Ramsay and Arteta are not the answer!) and desperately needs a top striker. I am a season ticket holder and just cannot believe that Wenger thinks this current side can challenge for the top trophies. If he generally feels that they can - he must not be offered a new contract as he is insane!
Of course not. Nowhere near!! We struggled last year and will do even worse this year. I used to be a faithful gunner and defend the team the team and genuinely whether I enjoyed my weekend or not would depend on the result that weekend but I have completely lost the faith now. I’ve given up my season ticket and I don’t wear the shirt anymore and I’m richer and happier for it. I don't even pick Arsenal players for my fantasy team! I still can't completely shut off my feelings as I still read these sites but I’m working on it.
You are insane to think Arsenal without any major signings this summer will break the trophy drought. Only trophies they are set for is a Europa league place and carling cup. They are in for a rude awakening. If you keep playing with fire you will eventually get burned. The squad does not have the quality and depth to break to compete with Chelsea, Man Utd and Man City. Those 3 clubs have bench men and reserve players that can start for Arsenal and other premier league sides. You cannot say the same about arsenal. All this false hope is ridiculous and borderline delusional.
Can guarantee arsenal won’t finish in top 4 this year. Their transfer activity this window is laughable. No wonder they haven't won a trophy in 9 years. They are a complete joke. Do the EPL a favor and let another team have a shot at the champs league, you're just wasting space.
