Sure at the moment that looks beyond us, on current form at least, but I still think that there will be surprises for EVERY team at the top.
Its heartbreaking to look at the league table at the moment. We set the pace for so much of the season and at one time looked like we were going to run away with the title.
To see us in third place after being on top of the table for so long this season is almost soul destroying. But I don't think its a lack of experiance that has cost us this run of form and our place at the top. I think its a lack of squad cover which has been the main reason.
There can be no doubt that Arsenal have a match-day squad that easily competes with United and Chelsea. But when we have injuries or suspensions to these players our lack of cover from of the rest of the squad catches up with us.
Thats where the problem is and it means we have become too reliant on certain players and have been unable to rest people. Like United and Chelsea can.
As i've said, the title isn't beyond our reach, as yet. But I cant help but wonder that if Arsene was more active in the transfer market, then would we find ourselves in this position?
There can be no doubting the quality in this squad, its just the quantity that may be proving our current plight. With a couple more players added, mainly at centre back, wide midfield and a striker then this thin squad would look alot stronger.
This season will make this squad stronger whatever happens. I urge Wenger to keep his philosophy of playing beautiful football.
Just get out the cheque book, add a couple more players and this squad will reap the rewards its football deserves. I'm not talking major changes, just a couple of signings to boost the numbers in the squad. Heck, if u like Arsene, u could even sign someone us Gooners could get excited about!
Keep it Goonerish..........
