Well, up until this point it’s been an all too quiet transfer season for us, and the frailties in Arsenal’s squad were exposed by Villa (and Anthony Taylor). However, we won’t go into that again, and this article will try and see why the summer has seemed incredibly anti-climactic thus far. .......Read the full article here
It just doesn’t get any better for fans of Arsenal Football Club does it? A board that has a business minded structure and a manager that is stingier than those that do their weekly shop at poundland, when it comes to transfer windows being an Arsenal fan just isn’t something to get excited about.
With just 18 days left before we reach 1st September 2013, Wenger needs to make several key signings to firstly improve our team, but secondly to make sure we have enough strength in squad depth. And the news that Luis Suarez’s future looks increasingly likely to now remain at Liverpool puts the nail in the coffin for the hopes and dreams of Arsenal this summer. .......Read the full article here
I can understand the frustration that has built up over the summer for Arsenal fans, as we have been linked with every player and his dog and then watched most of them sign for other clubs. But I cannot understand why so many Arsenal fans seem to think that Arsene Wenger is deliberately trying to pull the wool over our eyes, and that he is just looking for excuses not to sign any players and to save the club money. .......Read the full article here
The mood and opinions of an Arsenal fan seems to change so often, more often than any other football club I can think of. Take this summer for example, we started off in a mixed mood that was mostly good. Some people were a little frustrated that the players were celebrating finishing fourth as if we had won a title. Unfortunately in these times, that is the equivalent to winning a title for us now and it’s like winning the Champions League to the board. .......Read the full article here
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has made comments about the club’s young players today and said how they will have a big role to play this season. This sounds to me like a small hint at saying that this summer’s transfer business will be conducted as usual with no £50M strikers or any top, top players incoming.
It is becoming ever more clear this summer that Arsenal are struggling in the transfer market. We have been told that there is money to spend, and I believe there is. The problem seems to be, for Arsene Wenger and the Arsenal board, finding players to spend it on.
We don’t know for sure that Arsenal were seriously interested in most of these targets, because the only bid that has been confirmed is for Suarez. We can reasonably assume, however, that the interest in Higuain, Jovetic, Fellaini, Williams and Cesar had some basis in reality. There is a common factor in all of these transfer sagas, and with the pursuit of Suarez, and that is money. .......Read the full article here
Can we trust the people in charge of Arsenal any more? by Stefan
This is a question that I have pondered several times in recent years but I have asked it to myself more in the last few days than ever before. We really are in hard times as the glory days of the invincibles are gone and have been for some time. .......Read the full article here
At the start of the summer transfer window Arsenal were linked with hundreds of strikers, with names including Higuain, Jovetic, Villa and so on. However as the window has progressed we have seen Arsenal drop out of the running for each of these players and as a result seen them move to other clubs (or in Benteke’s case sign a new contract). Now I’m not necessarily saying that I’m too aggrieved at missing out on some of those players (as we all have our own personal favourites on which ones we’d like Arsenal to sign) but it’s the fact that we seem to be missing out on everyone that has angered me. .......Read the full article here
Has this transfer window been a failure for AFC? by AH
Already 8 weeks into this summer’s transfer window, the usual lack of action and business has happened at Arsenal and although all the outgoing players this time haven’t been our best players, like previous years, we once again find ourselves in the position where our squad is looking to be exactly the same, or even worse than the previous year as we approach the beginning of the 2013/14 Premier League season. .......Read the full article here
Wenger: “We are not close to signing anyone” by Ash
I’m afraid it’s bad news for Arsenal fans today, after Arsene Wenger has basically confirmed what was on all our minds. – This summer isn’t going to be any different than any other in terms of Arsenal’s transfers. The Arsenal fans were certain that after the end of the season and Wenger’s comments that we would see a change in attitude and ambition in terms of transfers from Wenger, Gazidis, Richard Law and the rest of the Arsenal board. But oh how wrong we were. .......Read the full article here
Over the last week or so there have been a lot of rumours suggesting that Arsenal were set to complete the signing of their first major player this summer in a move for young Brazilian midfielder Bernard. Bernard who plays for Atletico Mineiro was nothing more than another player with potential talent before the Confederations Cup this summer, but his performances over the course of the tournament claimed him a lot of plaudits and ultimately we now recognise him as one of the world’s upcoming superstars. .......Read the full article here
I know it is hugely frustrating for the fans that Arsenal have not announced any new signings other than the raw 20-year old French striker Yaya Sanogo. I can also understand why people are starting to wonder whether Arsene Wenger is actually going to spend the substantial amount of transfer money he is supposed to have, but it is not his fault. .......Read the full article here
