Having started the premier league campaign in horrific fashion, Arsenal and the supporters are in utter shock. However, one person who thinks that everything is fine as always is their manager Arsene Wenger.
After the not so shocking loss against Aston Villa, Wenger has been coming up with ridiculous statements that make no sense whatsoever after what has gone by over the past few months. The best Arsene Wenger can do is keep quiet.
A day before the opening game, Arsene claimed:
“There are shortage of top, top, top players who are available”
Ofcourse, that is going to be the case when you have no serious intent of signing a top top player. Suarez was not even available, Liverpool always said that he is not for sale, yet Arsenal came up with useless bids, that too way below what he is actually worth.
Gustavo, Higuain other examples where only time was wasted. Nevertheless, top top players are still available, Wenger does not need to look far to know that. Their archrivals Spurs are still signing quality players.
Regarding why he has left it so late and not yet signed any big player:
“Less than two weeks is a long time and 75 per cent of things happen in the last 10 days”
Guess that statement only works with Arsenal and wait they have not even done the first 25 percent and we are into the last 10 days.
The last one probably sums it all up as Wenger said:
“I repeat many, many times that the transfer window should be over before the season starts because it is a little bit destabilizing once the season has started”
Arsenal supporters still have little or so hope just because there are few days left for their club to sign players. But well, only Wenger would know what he would have done if the transfer season would have ended a month back.
Perhaps, with a shorter summer transfer window, his excuses may weigh more. Now, Wenger must keep quiet and sign some top players to ensure that they do not suffer more setbacks.
