Arsenal, a club in turmoil

Tuesday, August 16, 2011

Lately, you can't look in the papers without seeing something about North Londoners, Arsenal. The problem for them is, the news has not been very good of late. Some might say Arsenal are a club in crisis, and I would have to agree.

We all know about Cesc Fabregas' high profile move back to him first club Barcelona, but to be honest that move was coming and any Arsenal fan who didn't predict it, was frankly, clutching at straws. With the sales of Emmanuel Eboue and Gael Clichy adding to the departure list, it's safe to say there is something not right in the Emirites stadium this summer.

Who is to blame? I don't think its problem with the board, otherwise we would have heard it from some source. Most of the blame has been put on Wenger, which in my opinion, is fair enough. He has been told over and over again where he needs to strengthen his squad, and instead he buys a mediocre right-back from Charlton, a 17 year old wonderkid who although screams potential, is not the finished article. His only other signing was Ivory Coast international Gervinho, who signed from Lille. A good player yes, but the type of player Arsenal need? No.

Perhaps the most worrying thing for Wenger and his staff is the astonishing lack of support from the fans, but can you blame them? Last weekend during their 0-0 draw with Newcastle a chant from crowd could be heard ''Please spend some money''. There was also some abuse for want-away midfielder Samir Nasri, with Arsenal fans letting there feelings towards his lack of loyalty to the club be known. Tonight's game against Udinese is perhaps one of the most important games of Arsenal's season. A two legged affair. Victory could win back the fans, defeat could see more empty seats at the Emirites for games to come.

So with Fabregas gone, Nasri seemingly destined to make a switch to Manchester (the blue side) and the fans getting sick of Wenger's procrastination in the transfer market, it's safe to say Arsenal are not having their best period. Your
move Mr Wenger, your move.

    Arsenal doesn't buy superstars instead they make them superstars. I guess financially they need to be more independent since the other sides have pockets full. Arsene should change his psychology now and buy a couple of superstars to play among the talented youngsters they already have.
