Its fair to say that this summer hasn't been the most stable at Arsenal. We've had key players of last season leave the squad and there is still uncertainty amongst some of the remaining players at Le Bosses disposal.
However the season is just around the corner and is drawing closer as we speak. Arsenal have been written off by most already. I'm not prepared to write Arsenal off.
Remember last summer? We were in apparent turmoil after the sale of Thierry Henry and were set to be replaced by the mugs down the road in the elite top four. It didn't happen, far from it in fact.
We launched an unexpected title assault that only crumbled in the last couple of months. We were so nearly there and I expect to be involved in the title race this season.
The squad is young, but is another year older and wiser. Last season's disappointments should give the players that extra hunger too.
I think we can win it, but only with a couple of players added to the squad. This is where Le Boss needs to learn from last season.
Last season we came unstuck because the squad was not strong enough in depth. We've lost some numbers that need replacing. I hope Wenger realises this (it seems he does) and rectifies it.
I think he will. I don't think our summer transfer activities are over yet and I imagine we will see the desired faces to freshen the squad.
The media need to learn to fuck off. Their constant articles about "Arsenal in crisis" are forever being printed. I've two words for them DO ONE. We are not the media darlings that Manchester United are because of jealousy. Plain and simple.
I need to learn at times to calm down and think before I write. Regular readers of my blog know I'm an emotional guy when it comes to Arsenal. Arsenal is my Achilles heel. Call me a cunt and I'm fine, but diss my beloved Arsenal and I'm a different animal.
I know there are Arsenal blogs out there that are better and that are written better than mine, but I write with my heart and always say what I think is best for Arsenal (in my mind anyway!)
The bottom line is this: Arsenal WILL win something this season as long as Le Boss signs a couple of players in key positions (centre midfield and centre back) The media can jog on, and I'm gonna calm down!
That's the lesson of the day!
Keep it Goonerish...........
