Wenger preparing Arsenal fans for more transfer disappointment?

Today is a great day for Arsenal fans. We can finally relax after another tense season ended in the Gunners finishing in the Champions League (again) and above Tottenham (again). So we can happily taunt the spuds while looking forward to bigger and better things at the Emirates, can’t we?

The crippling debt is out of the way, so we are told, and Wenger will have a big transfer war chest to spend, so it is rumoured. So why have a got a small kernel of concern inside me? Arsene Wenger didn’t help in his post-match interview. He was asked about whether the club would now kick on and spend the money on the quality players needed to challenge for the title again and the Frenchman was a little less enthusiastic than he should have been.

“We need stability and to strengthen. Is it spending a lot on one player or buying many players?” said Wenger.

“We want additions but we want to keep the structure and spirit and quality of the team.

“Let’s not forget there are many clubs with big money and not enough talent to strengthen all the teams. But we will go out in a proactive way.”

That, to me, does not sound like a man who expects to be making some `top, top` signings this summer. However, Wenger is known for playing his cards extremely close to his chest, especially in transfer dealings. Hopefully he is just being cautious before announcing his acquisitions. But Kroenke and the board are tighter than a door seal on a submarine.

Maybe it is just me, maybe I am so used to disappointment in transfer windows that I am struggling to be optimistic. It is true that there will be lots of teams in the process of changing and rebuilding this summer and Wenger and his staff are going to have to work hard to achieve their targets. Will Arsenal really get the big players we need?

  1. i dont think
    higuain and jovetic are in our range price

    ilicic also is a quality player

    this time we r linked with great player

    wait until the last day of the transfer

    also we are unbeaten and the team will continue

    1. HIGUAN MAY BE IS NOT IN ARSENAL’S REACH.. BUT JOVETIC WILL BE AT ARSENAL NEXT SEASON..

      ILICIC IS GOOD , BUT HE’S WORKRATE IS QUESTIONABLE…HE IS INCONSISTENT N MOREOVER ARSENAL DONT NEED ANOTHER BOX TO BOX MIDFIELDER WITH WILSHERE,ARTETA,RAMSEY, ALL CAN PLAY AS BOX TO BOX

  2. the author is right when he says it is tough to be optimistic after seeing the signings in the recent seasons. Lets hope v r back to the top from next season onwards.

  3. JOVETIC IS A DONE DEAL…

    JOVETIC ISN’T A WORLD CLASS PLAYER YET..

    JOVETIC AND A DEFENSIVE MIDFIELDER IS NECESSARY.

    GONALONS, COPOUO, WANYAMA N RECENTLY THE EPL DM LINKED ALL ARE GOOD…
    I’D PREFER GONALONS THOUGH.

    A YOUNG CB FOR THE BENCH N A RB TOO…

    AND A GK
