We could not last the marathon last season and the main reason for that in my opinion was a lack of squad depth.
True, who could have foreseen the injuries that we encountered, we were damn right unlucky on that part, but when we have suffered with injuries, it's obvious that our squad gets stretched.
To the bare bones.
Now at the end of the season Le Boss stated his main aim was to keep the current squad together and add two or three players.
Well straight away that has failed.
Flamini has left and Hleb is desperate to leave. So already one down, maybe another to go.
So Le Boss needed two to three players, that is now three or four after the departure of Flamini.
If Hleb leaves, it makes the players needed to bring in a grand total of four to five.
Of the sudden it seems the progress that Arsenal made on Manchester United has taken a step back.
We needed more players, but are losing them.
Sure we have plenty of time to add to the squad, the summer is young and I hope that Le Boss shuts me up. I really do.
I love Wenger, but it seems that we took a step forward last season and straight away we are taking a step back.
When will Wengers vision ever be complete if we lose players every year?
We need continuity. We need to keep this squad together and add to it. Not take away from it.
I'm not saying we have or will become a bad team over night. Far from it.
And I hate to sound so pessimistic, but how can Le Bosses dream, and ours, become a reality if we have to be a work in progress all the time?
Because at the moment that what we are again. A work in progress.
I hope Wenger finds the answers, and I'm sure that he will.
Keep it Goonerish..........
