Wenger: We’ll try to bring players in| Post-Newcastle thoughts.

Morning gooners! The Premier League kicked off yesterday and even though we have not had the best of starts, I’m just glad that the best series the world has ever seen is back!

I saw yesterday’s game and it is quite obvious we are still a few bodies away from becoming champions.

No, I’m not saying this team cannot win a trophy, but add 2-3 top class players to that team and we’ll definitely win trophies.

Whilst yesterday’s performance was unconvincing, there were a few positives. The defence was top drawer! Koscielny and TV5 were colossal and were equal to everything a very physical Newcastle side threw at them.

I particularly loved the duel between Kos and Ameobi, one in which the French man came out on top. Also, we kept another clean sheet. And we finally have a dominant goalkeeper in Szczesny.

One bad feature in the game was the manager being subjected to chants of “spend some f**king money” by the away fans. I won’t comment on whether what they did was wrong or right.

Everyone is entitled to his views and if some people believe that booing the manager is their adopted approach, fair play to them.

After the game, Arsene Wenger insisted he is not against spending to boost the team’s Premier title. And with the club set to receive around £60m from the expected sale of Cesc and Nasri, he made his stance known. Said He,

I’m not against spending money if the players we buy improve our squad. We must find them and we’re looking very hard, believe me. We have a very big squad and if some players leave, we’ll try to bring others in.”

While Le Boss did not confirm that Nasri is close to joining Man City, he admitted that there was danger of the club being seen as a feeder club if the current trend of selling best players continues.

Yes, we’re concerned by that because when you take players at 16, 17, 18-year-olds and play them in the Premier League, you need to be brave. You do it because you think they deserve it but also because you think the club will be rewarded when they are 23, 24 and they’re in a position to deliver.”

It is good to hear the manager admit that the team needs reinforcements. However, following the events of the past week, one knows more than to believe everything Wenger says.

As usual, let us know what you think!

  1. wenger try to brings 3 players pls

  2. i believe in wenger but his experiment will fail him if he didnt reinforce his team.

  3. arsenal need 2 great players in the midfield and 1 more defender.pls wenger act now.

  4. I trust in Arsen, but 2 new mid plays & 1 world class striker needed. Plz wenger hury up.

  5. By losing two great players then replacing them two possible good players who I’m gathering will come from abroad with no prem league experiance how is that improving on last year were going backwards what happens to the 40mill plus clichy money that’s the best part of 50mill before fab n nas money we need 3 or 4 top top signing to have any hope I fear for us if this doesn’t happen!!’

  6. Aminu shu'aibu-Anyigba nig

    if nasri must go, then u must b able to secure tevez, a creative player n a xperience defender.

  7. sign a quality a creative midfielder that will assist wilshere and a quality defender. that’s all

  8. Karl Karma Marx.

    This current set of player are not bad. Then if it is necessary for Wenger to add players to his squad, it should defence, cos Djorou and Sguallaci are prone to errors.

  9. I feel a little better on my statements about Kozzer now! Hopefully all the doubters out there will start to believe in him. The guy is Class!! Recall the moment Ameobi was outpaced by koz, so he fouled him not once but twice chasing the ball, the stupid ref let play on, Koz battled on forced ameobi wide and a pass back out of danger! top drawer! and amazing comittment. I would still like a defender as i have always said but i believe who ever comes in is going to be 3rd choice behind TV5 and Kozzer. great pairing. Unless Wenger is unhappy with Gibbs and TV5 heads to LB.

    The downside to the game is Aaron Ramsey, he doesn’t look confident out there at all. A premiership loan would be ideal but its just not going to happen. A creative player is needed so bad after that display. Rosicky is nothing more than a handy (ish) back up these days and Rambo needs his confidence back. I would have loved to see Mata, but doesn’t look like it will happen 😥 Jadson sounds promising. Someone else that looks amazing is Goetze from Dortmund. Just saw a replay of the Germany Brasil game and he outstanding! Song – Whilshere – Jadson/Goetze/Mata/someone like that in midfield is a huge improvement on the midfield we saw against newcastle.

    Huge game this week, i really really hope Jackie boy is back. I would start:
    Sagna Koz TV5 Gibbsy
    Walcott Arsharvin Gervinho

    That is a good side and with arsharvin in the middle much more creative. He was the only one that looked like creating and whilst he is a danger on the wing he disappears a lot too, hopefully a central role will keep him in the action (it is his preferred role). Udinese are not bad but i don’t think they are they hot either. We SHOULD take this tie but we need focus and jack whilshere would be a huge help!

    • Carmelo Pace malta

      good article mate,but 2 points i dont agree are in the starting eleven.i would play ramsey in walcotts place( i still cant understand how he’ll make the bench,let alone start for ARSENAL )and i prefare chamack for van persie

      • Ramsey on the wing? or put sharvin there?
        Does that mean you don’t rate walcott? come on the guy is a talent he’ll score goals again this season and with gervinho running all over the place there will be space and more direct play is required, hence we need a good cesc replacement.

        As for chamakh he’ll probably start cause RvP is suspended…i forgot!

  10. I believ in WENGER…
    We need to get the right player for the right price, a central defender,striker nd attacking midfielder can mk us stronger to contest for trophies

  11. Dont fcuking try, just do it!

  12. I hav sympathy 4 wenger coz no one now trusts him again but i still bliv he is an intelligent man.I do hope & pray he gets decent guys in coz d team is short,but he stil deserve some respect for what he’s done over years at arsenal,IN WENGER I TRUST.G4LIFE

  13. Abdullahi adeniji

    Hope he get cahil,jadson & rodallega

  14. i did say at the beginning of the pre-season that if wenger did not bring in players like samba , mata, cahil, in short ig players to strengthen the club arsenal will finish 10th on the league table, wenger should look in wards , they are players who is ready to play for us but they are been ignored because their wage bill .we can not afford to be a breeding ground for man city and other clubs.
