The Arsenal manager has less then 2 weeks to bring in much needed reinforcements in key positions and after losing experienced players like Toure, Adebayor myself and a few other fans on the forum are starting to worry about weather Wenger WILL spend the £35m on the right players.
With Senderos and Eboue apparently close to also leaving the club i wonder what happened to the comments made by Wenger in may when he said “My aim is to keep this squad together”
However..I do agree that the squad needed a shake up, Now Wenger has to work his magic in the transfer market and put us back in the race for honors. I feel we still need 3 new signings before the end of the transfer window.
The spin of the team right down the middle. A CB and a much awaited DM and a replacement for Adebayor. No doubt we have some great talent in the squad with Jack Wilshere , Henri Lansbury, Fran Merida & Nacer Barazite. But the balance needs to be right and we cant put all out hopes on the new season in a 17 year old kid in Jack Wilshere.
So Wenger has less then 2 weeks to spend the £35m, I say its a massive 2 weeks for the future of the club for a few reasons. The strength of Man City may push us out of the top 4 and out of the champions league spot this season and this might be the last season we have Cesc as i am sure he will be sold next summer.
Wenger really needs to go out and address the weaknesses in the team. We have already seen in the friendlies that we are still weak at the back and still missing that defensive ball winner in the middle of the park. I’m hopeful that we a few new additions and with up and coming youth we have we can surprise a few people this season. BUT Wenger really needs to earn his money in the next 2 weeks and sign some players….If not, its gonna be a long painful season…And if its a bad season how much longer will some of the fans give Wenger and his project? He really needs to start winning something soon. Nothing to show since 2005 and even the “in wenger we trust” brigade must be having some doubts.
Lets hope some new blood will fire us towards glory.
