Arsenal only have the Premier League to fight for, and that even looks like going to Manchester United, after going out of the League Cup in the finals, the Champions League after winning their first leg tie against Barcelona and their defeat in the quarters in the FA Cup.
So what went wrong this season? It is debatable what went wrong for Arsenal, from Thomas Vermaelen’s early surgery, one that looked to destroy their season early on, and so it has, with Koscielny making a practical joke out of himself and Squilacci looking like he hasn’t seen a football in his life.
Arsene Wenger certainly needs to step up and actually bring some ‘star quality’ into his team, his best recent signing being French midfielder Samir Nasri. Look at it this way, their two big signings have been Andrey Arshavin and Samir Nasri, both have became debatably huge properties at the club, improving every match, whilst the youngsters take years to break into the first team.
It’s time to sign players for Arsenal, and Wenger has to do that….. fast.
