I know Wenger said he would buy early this summer and although he hasn’t bought yet (Sanogo aside) it is still only July the 7th.
I personally think he will still buy big and these are the players I hope he buys.
Higuain is the striker I want, not Jovetic who frankly does nothing for me, I also think he is one of those that no one had heard of until the papers linked us with him and his goalscoring record isn’t as good as Giroud’s.
Fellaini is the player I want most, he is the only one we could buy out of a contract (set fee) and is EPL proven, so by buying him we won’t have to go through waiting a season or two for him to prove himself like we do with most of Wenger’s signings.
I’m not sure who we should bring in at the back but we sure do need someone, Williams at 28 may be a little too old, I still like Mamadou Sakho or Matt Hummels.
I think that if Sagna is going to play like he did last year then we should let Jenkinson have a go, with Bellerin as his back up.
We really need a top keeper, like Pedro I would go for Begovic, I would also have Cesar. Chezzer I like and have no doubt he will be a top, top keeper, but like most young players, he isn’t ready yet.
I know I am suggesting Jenkinson with a kid as back up, but I like the speed we have at the back for going forward (and getting back to defend) on our quick counter attacks.
Add the above to our already good team and we become challengers, leave things as they are and we’ll be scrapping with Tottenham and Liverpool for 4th place.
As I have said on numerous occasions the fans deserve a title challenging team, they pay more than Chelsea, ManU and City fans, we make more money as a club and the financial shackles are finally off.
And never forget when Wenger was sucking in the credit for our move in the first place, he said it was needed in order to compete with the Mancs. Okay so lets now compete.
Last year we helped them win the league, let’s take it back off them this year.
I think we should make a bid for Cesc or Alcantara, both would make us the real deal and Barca can’t afford to keep the two of them, in my opinion of course.
If he chooses not to then the board shouldn’t offer him another contract, they have a duty to the fan base first and the number one target for any manager is either survival or silverware.
We don’t need to worry about surviving, we do however need to start filling up our trophy cabinet, that should be the number one priority, we have won nothing for 9 seasons now and that is no longer acceptable.
Mediocrity seems to be the norm for rewarding players at Arsenal, time to stop that with the management. £7.5mil a year is an awful lot of money.
Time to bring in the players that will see us compete again Arsene, this really is the last chance Corral, start negotiating, or get someone on it that can.
Have a great day Grovers, it has to be soon.
