Wow finally the transfer window for this summer is closed. We can stop following all the rumours and start supporting our beloved Arsenal team. I am tired of all the transfer stories and finding player videos in youtube. No more youtube videos of Sami Khedira, Cavani, Falcao, Kostas Monalos, Sokratis papa——–, Nastastic, Micah Richards, Remy, Benders, Howedes, Reus, Morgan Schneiderlin, Vela, Drmic, Mario, Rabiot etc……….. etc….. That is a long list. Most of the linked targets have made a move in this transfer window. Our rivals has done a good job of buying some great players. As always Arsenal feeds us with transfers of surprise and shock.
Its always a mixed feeling supporting Arsenal. We defeat Barca, Bayern Munich, AC Milan etc… that makes us go mad and also get defeated by Birmingham, Aston villa or any other relegation fighting team to test our patience. Transfer window does provide similar moments to us. It always starts with a surprise and ends with frustration. Some of the things in the transfer window always leave us scratching our head.
Barca DNA moving to chelski was the most surprised moved according to me. Barca gave its academy graduate a fitting farewell.
Like I have mentioned in my previous posts. Arsene has a definite plan and acts early. Once the initial activity is done the whole club just trolls media & fans. Gervinho, Koscielny, Vermaelen, Sanchez, Chambers, Sanogo etc.. were all part of the team building process. The final hours are just looking for bargain deals without any plan. Please don’t tell me Mesut Ozil was part of our plan. In Last summer transfer window we failed with every striker target and also failed to land Yohan cabaye. Ozil was the response to fans after the Aston villa game.
In this transfer window the club has done really well to purchase some established players. Sanchez, Ospina, Chambers, Debuchy and Welbeck are all very good addition to our squad. Remember Joel Cambell and Podolski are still part of our squad. You might disagree with me. This transfer window was really a change of direction. Generally Arsene replaces outgoing players with some youth players. This window was not that case. We really bought solid players. We also shipped lot of deadwood.
Ivan – ” We worked very hard on transfers” – TADA I give you “Danny Welbeck”. Thank you very much Ivan Gazidis for your hardwork all summer. Its really hard to replace one of the most confident striker in English premier league. Finally our Arsenal Scout team, Ivan and Managers have found the right man to replace the Greatest striker on the planet. You have big shoes to fill young man. Many arsenal fans would be gutted to lose one of the hardest working professional even known.
Arsenal has done very well in this transfer window.
Have we done better than our rivals? – Nope
Is our team good enough to win the EPL? I hope so.
