The Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger spoke at the press conference about what people should expect from this year’s summer transfer window, and according to him there’s quite a bit to look up to.
The Frenchman snubbed rumours which were saying that the Gunners are going to be highly active on the transfer market saying that they don’t need a lot of players, because they currently have a large number of quality players and the squad can only hold 25 players. ...........Read more

Many people criticized Arsene Wenger this season and sometimes they were right, especially after Arsenal’s panic buying at the last minute of the transfer window. Wenger’s ambition not to buy anybody and his stubbornness to keep believing that Nasri and Fabregas won’t leave has cost the Gunners a lost season and huge disappointment to their fans.
By the time Wenger realized that Fabregas and Nasri were really leaving it was too late to agree a deal for one of the many players the Gunners wanted, and that lead to a completely missed season and an extension to the six-year trophy drought. ...........Read more

Arsenal’s fans are starting to ask questions about the situation at the club ever since Fabregas and Nasri were allowed to go while no other top quality players were brought since. Gervinho proved his skill, but he was brought prior to those sales and ever since Arsenal haven’t been able to transfer any good player except Arteta.
“What was the point in six per cent price rises last summer if the club do not want to spend? We will always support the team and Wenger deserves respect and to be treated with dignity after everything he’s done for the club.” Fan leader Kelvin Meadows stated ...........Read more

Arsene Wenger seems totally committed to not bringing any new players this month, and as usual he blames the Gunners annual injury list as the reason for Arsenal’s bad showing lately..
He believes that if he could transfer some of his players internally (e.g. from the medical centre) then that could help his team more than bringing in any sub-standard outsiders.
“At the moment we are not close to signing anybody.” Wenger said. “The transfer market is internal for us. We recently played with ten players out, to have only two or three out would help us a lot, much more than the transfer market. ...........Read more

Manchester United managed to defeat Arsenal once again and even though the Gunners were on a very good run in the game, Wenger decided to switch things around. Do you think that maybe this time it was only his fault that the game turned out this way?
First of all, why would you change Chamberlain who had an amazing match again, and put in Arshavin who showed us how much of a bad form he’s in last time he was on the pitch? And second of all, when will the manager understand that Ramsey lost a lot when he was injured and never quite retrieved to his old amazing form, managing only to put in average appearances? ...........Read more

Back in the summer when Arsenal got off to their worst start to the season in living memory, which was compounded by their worst defeat for a century when Man Utd destroyed them 8-2, Arsene Wenger had a sudden flurry in the transfer market.
In the following days after the defeat Wenger brought in Mikel Arteta, Per Mertesacker, Andre Santos, Yossi Benayoun and Ju Young Park to strengthen all areas of the team, but Wenger is adamant that the rush of activity had nothing to do with the result against United. ...........Read more

Arsenal’s manager Arsene Wenger regrets having lost the City game, because he knows that the club will have a much stronger team for the second half of the season. Wilshere and Diaby will be soon coming back according to Wenger, and several transfers will also be brought in.
“We hope to have (Jack) Wilshere and (Abou) Diaby back so in midfield we have the numbers required.
“But at the moment we are short at the back and if Gervinho and Chamakh go to the Africa Cup of Nations we are short up front more than midfield.” ...........Read more

Arsenal’s manager Arsene Wenger is likely to do a bit of a spring cleaning in January when the transfer market will be opening, and will look to sell some of the players which are no longer motivated enough at Arsenal.
Rosicky is one who was often linked with a possible departure, but the French manager denied the rumours:
“Rosicky is at Arsenal and he remains at Arsenal,” Wenger said.
The most likely to leave Arsenal this January are Squillaci, Arshavin and Chamakh. ...........Read more

Arsenal’s midfielder Thomas Rosicky spoke to the club’s official website about the squad The Gunners have at the moment. Coming back from the international break, the Czech, now qualified to EURO 2012, spoke about the importance of having time to get to know new-comers.
“We are looking forward to the next month because we are back on track again and have some positive results behind us,” he told Arsenal.com
“Sometimes when new faces come in you need time to gel and I think the last month was much better from us. We were good defensively and much more compact. I think we will show that in the coming months as well.” ...........Read more
