This transfer window has been even more disappointing than usual for Arsenal Fans, with Arsene Wenger not only denying interest in all the rumoured targets, but even calling for the transfer window in January to be scrapped altogether.
This has finally got through to the press and the red-tops have even stopped making up rumours any more as they have finally realised what we all knew deep down anyway, that Arsenal are simply going to buy no-one despite having a whole team of injured players.
Wenger’s latest outburst said it all really. He said: “If the players come back, we are strong enough. If we do not have the players back, we will struggle.
“Football is not a supermarket where you go in there and say, ‘Give me a left-back, please. And a right-back and a centre-back.’ We have to find the players better than what we have.
“When Vermaelen plays left-back, finding a better left-back for me is difficult. Vermaelen has missed two games, maybe another game Sunday. You cannot every time buy a player when you have an injury. Where do you finish?
“England is bankrupt. The whole of Europe is bankrupt and everyone continues to spend like nothing happened.
“Arsenal are not bankrupt. We manage in a sensible way at Arsenal and that’s why we are not bankrupt. We try to spend the money we have.”
Funnily enough I DON’T see Arsenal spending the money they have, not even the massive profits that they made on their transfer dealings in the summer.
And as for not finding “players better than what we have”, I can name hundreds of players that are better than Chamakh, Squillaci, Almunia, Arshavin, need I go on?????
