Once again it has been a negative start to the season for Arsene Wenger’s Arsenal side.
Yesterday’s defeat at home to fellow title rivals Liverpool was a stark reminder of how far off Arsenal are from genuinely challenging for the title, but with a lack of transfer activity, is it actually that suprising?
The North Londoners were booed off by the fans after what was a simply shocking display despite scoring three goals themselves. Yes, they had two inexperienced players at the heart of the defence, however, had the club gone out and strengthened in the summer, they wouldn’t have had such a disadvantage to begin the season with. This result not only highlights Arsenal’s lack of quality in their current squad, but suggests it could be yet another year of disappointment.
Arsene Wenger’s stubbornness in the transfer market increasingly looks like it is costing Arsenal dearly, and the fans will not put up with it for much longer as was clear the other day.
The move to the Emirates stadium a decade ago was meant to allow Arsenal to move forward as a club, but instead, they have stagnated and not shown any ambition whatsoever – that comes down to the board and Arsene Wenger.
In the past ten years, we have seen many different players come and go at Arsenal, yet the outcome is still the same with Wenger missing out on the league title year after year.
So, the question now is: What has to change? It’s simple, Arsene Wenger either has to accept that he must spend big to compete with his rivals or he step down as an Arsenal Manager come the end of the season.
We’ve seen results like this too often in the past few seasons and it’s now becoming a joke to say the least. The same mistakes are still being made despite it being abundantly clear to everyone as to where do the problems lie.
Regardless, two weeks of the transfer window remain, and it is now essential for Arsenal to bring in reinforcements, otherwise the end could be near for Arsene Wenger’s grand tenure.
