All Quiet on the Arsene Front

As the clock ticks down to the end of this January transfer window one thing seems increasingly clear. It will be yet another quiet one for us.

Arsene Wenger has been dodging bullets for several weeks now at various press conferences today’s was no exception. He has distanced himself from David Villa, Mohammed Diame, Younes Belhanda. this coming after he flatly denied that we were “in” for Wilfried Zaha although weeks prior to this he said we were very interested. Maybe he wasn’t willing to loan him back. It has got to the point as a Gooner that I no longer believe a word of what comes out of his mouth. I am now making a promise to myself not to be gazumped by these transfer rumours. We have been linked with everyone and their Gran since the window opened.

The main thing that has riled me with Wenger recently is his constant delusion on our squad strength. he has said that Arsenal fans shouldn’t expect any miraculous deals to be done in this window. Sounds to me like he has firmly shut his chequebook locked it in a safe wrapped several chains around it, padlocked and dumped it in the ocean. another one of his genius lines was that he thinks we have 2 players for every position. is he delirious? don’t know what he has been dipping into his croissant lately but I could do with some of that. We are easily short of 3-4 good players. Our squad is down to its bare bones. For him to even suggest that there were/are not suitable players to bolster our squad for a decent price is just lunacy. I have listed a few below.

1, Lewis Holtby to Tottenham on a free could have bought him for probably around £5 million.

2, Yann M’Vila sold for a mere £9.6 Million to Ruben Kazan the sort of player we are crying out for.

3, Moussa Sissoko on the verge of a move to Newcastle would have been another decent acquisition

4, Wilfried Zaha £15 million which is nothing these days considering we have god knows how much just locked away under lock and key.

5 Hatem Ben Arfa, looks like his days are numbered at Newcastle would fit into our front 3 perfectly.

6 Adrian Lopez, Tricky Attacking Midfielder/ Forward available at around £10-£15 Million

7 Wesley Sneijder I don’t believe I have to tell anyone about this guy he would have added a hell of a lot of class to our attack.

They are just a few players that have been bought or are looking for moves. I just don’t think he was ever going be in the market for anybody, Whenever he was pushed on targets he would clam up and completely distance himself. I don’t expect any signings whatsoever another disappointing Window.
