Arsenal stuck with “disappointed” Bendtner, but where is Park?

On what was consider to be a pretty exciting day with the news and rumours of Mesut Ozil’s imminent arrival at the club, many forgot that what was meant to be happening in terms of players leaving the club and in fact, Arsenal have been left with what many consider as a massive blow on transfer deadline day with the news that we failed to ship out Nicklas Bendtner.

Bendtner has been touted to leave the Emirates stadium all summer, and was listed as one of the many many players we had as deadwood at Arsenal, however every single one of them managed to find a new club aside from two players Park and Bendtner.

If Arsenal fail on quality targets should we Panic buy squad players?

Arsenal have become rather prone to failing in the transfer window, so rarely does a summer or winter go by where Arsenal fans have a genuine smile on their face.

For the past few years Arsenal’s transfer windows have been full of disappointment. We lost Adebayor and Toure in 2010 and both were key players in our team. We lost Fabregas, Nasri and Clichy in 2011, again all three were key players in our team and arguably all top quality. Then last year we lost Robin Van Persie and so we were stuffed. Luckily we have bought some good players over these windows where we lost key names however none of them were up to the standards of their predecessors and so as fans we have been left with nothing but disappointment.

Arsenal to clear last deadwood – making room for……?

Yesterday Arsenal finally brought another player into the squad, with former Gunner Mathieu Flamini re-signing for the club on a 3 year deal worth £40k a week. And now the news could get even better with rumours suggesting the last remaining piece of deadwood (Bendtner aside) could be leaving the club for France.

Firstly my opinion on Flamini signing is a mixed one. Although I’m glad we now have another option to field and his experience will hopefully help us through the struggle, I am not particularly happy with the club making another free transfer and still not spending any money. What I also didn’t like was the fact, Arsenal were praising it up, especially on their twitter account, bombarding the fans about his signing as if we had just signed Messi or something.

Deadwood stage is coming on over the hill if Arsenal panic buy now!!

Just over a week and a half before the summer transfer window shuts and not only does Arsenal find itself lacking serious quality across the pitch, but it also lacks actual professional football players, with the club supposedly only having around 20 players available! It’s going to be a rough week and a half for Arsene Wenger and his management team, but if reports are believed to be true he may have pulled his finger out now after that 3-1 defeat to Villa, with speculation surrounding the club that several bids have been made and that we have negotiators flying to different countries now in order to speak with both clubs and players.

Bendtner and Park could play if Arsenal don’t get Suarez – Please No

If we can’t sell Park Chu Young and Nicklas Bendtner and also fail to buy a new striker, will this mean that we have to use these two deadwood strikers for the coming Premier League season? Now I’m fairly certain that a very small percentage of Arsenal fans will be happy with the thought of having to keep these two players on the books for another season and I would not be happy with that either.

Arsenal getting close to being Free of all Deadwood…now for some goodwood!

Despite what you want to say about Arsenal’s lack of incoming transfer business, and I’m sure those words won’t be positive, if you can overlook that for five minutes, you may be able to realise or reiterate that the club has done well in getting rid of the majority of the ‘deadwood’ listed players at the club.

I think this was always Arsenal’s main priority this summer and so that’s why we haven’t seen any transfer movement till recently. It’s a stupid approach to take, in my opinion, but seemingly is the path that has been taken and there’s nothing we can do now except reflect on what has gone before us and hope that we still manage to pull off some top quality signings.

Arsenal need to stop looking for value in the transfer market!

Arsenal’s prudent transfer policy has received plenty of plaudits since Arsene Wenger was appointed as manager in September 1996, but the ongoing lack of success at the Emirates Stadium has left many fans questioning the current state of the squad.

Two years ago Arsenal sold Cesc Fabregas to Barcelona and Samir Nasri to Manchester City and the ensuing chaotic transfer window dealings that year, have to a large extent, shaped the inadequacy of Wenger’s current squad.

Thierry Henry joins Arsenal injury list

Thierry Henry has only joined Arsenal on a six-week loan but it seems it is going to be a VERY eventful period for the 34 year-old Arsenal legend.

First of all he had his fairytale introduction by scoring ten minutes after he came on to beat Leeds, then came the sweary altercation with an Arsenal fan after the defeat to Swansea, and now it looks like he will miss the crunch game against Man Utd through injury.

The Mirror has an “Exclusive” (really?) that Henry injured his calf in training yesterday and is “struggling to be ready” to get fit for Sunday’s game, which is a bit of a blow considering the options Wenger has for cover for Van Persie.

Wenger Wants Reinforcements In Attacking Department

Arsenal’s manager Arsene Wenger admits that even though the Gunners have a large squad, they will have to visit the idea of making a few transfers in January.

The outgoings of Gervinho and Chamakh to the African Cup of Natons will also be a problem for the Frenchman who will lose two attacking players for a while.

“We have a big squad. To add players to our big squad, we will have to see how we can balance our books as well,” said Wenger.
