This summer will be one hell of a bumpy ride, but don't Arsenal always do things the hard way?
Every year we are put through the transfer wringer. Players are linked with coming and going all summer but Arsenal and us Gooners seem to suffer most.
Expectations have been raised by Le Boss after his comments that players would be brought in within two-three weeks.
This hasn't happened for whatever reason and it should never have been said by the gaffer. It's not fair on us Gooners.
We have had our hopes raised and Wenger has failed to deliver to them. He should never have said that if it wasn't true. After all, we Gooners do have feelings! And right now I'm feeling very disappointed.
Are comments like this only made to help season ticket sales? It just a thought.
I must say that the English transfer market opened on June 1st so officially we couldn't sign anyone. But that didn't mean we couldn't agree deals to go through on that date. Look the Spuds, they signed Modric ages ago.
Players who play in the Euros will cost a fortune to sign if they have a good tournament and I think we should have done most of our business before it begins.
We can't compete in bidding wars and due to Wengers eye for talent, some managers wait to see who Le Boss targets and then make thier move on the same player.
I think we will sign players, I just don't know when. All I know it that we were promised signings and the club has so-far failed to deliver in the time they stated.
With players leaving and some not delivering, we need decent signings to reassure us we are going in the right direction. Hopefully Wenger will fulfill his promise to us.
Keep it Goonerish........
