Wenger – I didn’t panic buy after Man Utd massacre

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.
