It’s taken years, but it has finally happened. It’s been long due but 2 consecutive trophies finally happened. Arsenal have added to their trophy cabinet and the true cracks underlying the glamor in the world of football financing and pricing are showing up. I’d in the past predicted a little bit what might happen if we have a stable squad and once the pricing game falls every team will face the consequences! Understandably, everyone (including me) thought we’d have injection of 2 or 3 more players to our squad – to ensure we contend for the Premier League as well as the Champions League – and not be exposed on injuries or dip in forms! Somewhere it has been fulfilled with the injection of a Petr Cech but yet many seem to be disappointed nevertheless!
We’ve done better than the last years but we’re far from what Arsenal is actually capable of producing. The funny part – we’re paying off the debts and are significantly stronger in cash positions than we’ve been in the past, yet some fans are troubled by the lack of transfer activity. Not harsh reality but it’s a sentiment, legends like Henry or existing directors like Lord Harris have publicly shared. Arsene Wenger has certainly been shrewd getting on Petr Cech from Chelsea but we’re really missing another 2 players in my opinion a centre-back and a player in the mid-field. There’s always a healthy debate I share with my cousin and another best friend on the need of a striker 🙂 – but then there’s never an end to it!
