Life is not what you would have expected it to be at the Grove, and it is definitely not what a Gooner wanted it to be with a little more than a month left for the transfer window to close.
I know Gazidis came out and said a few things regarding Wenger in the last AST meeting. He said that Wenger knows the problem. And that he knows what is wrong and what to do. Well, that was a pile of bull shit and quite frankly it was pathetic to see someone at the top level of the Arsenal hierarchy say this…
A simple stat that shows what Arsenal’s Achilles foot are the no of goals conceded in a season. I have always highlighted this fact in my posts and again I will do the same thing. 41 goals 2 seasons ago, and last season 43. In our last 10 game we won twice and lose thrice whilst drawing 5 games. And this was supposedly the crucial run in. Wenger promises a ‘busy’ transfer market, and we sign 2 players – Carl and Gervinho.
The defense is not adhered too. Has the club forgotten the reason for our downfall every season ? I honestly expected a new defender to be signed in early. That way he could be given ample time in pre-season and to adjust. I don’t want another Squillaci, and I am sure neither do you. So you understand my concern don’t you?
The club set supports hearts alight when the manager claimed that Benzema in an Arsenal jersey is ‘not impossible.’ Quite conveniently it was before the dead-line day as far as ticket renewals were concerned. Everybody is excited and goes renews their tickets. Mission accomplished!
I am geared up and ready for the news of Fabregas’ imminent departure to Spain. It took me a few weeks, but now I am ready. There are a few reports that Mata is signing for us. Well, that just makes Cesc leaving even more likely.
Wenger recently commented that he is looking for a defender. Right in the middle of the media reporting that we are bidding 20 quid for Jagielka. If you put them side by side, it makes no sense at all.
We have a few weeks till the season starts and a few more till the window closes. Let’s ‘hope’ there will be some movement in the Arsenal transfer market. Because if it remains the way it is, we are royally FUCKED when August 13 arrives…
‘Hope’- that’s our best defense, HOPE
