I'm frustrated but not surprised that Arsene Wenger hasn't added anyone other than Sol Campbell to this Arsenal squad.
Maybe I am slightly deluded but I honestly had the belief that Wenger would bring someone else in. I guess that from now on in the future I'll have to take his comments on signing players with a pinch of salt.
In fact I'd rather it if Arsene Wenger didn't mention his plans on buying players at all. I fail to remember how many times in the past I've heard Wenger say something that raises my hopes only to feel let-down when it doesn't happen.
I guess I should learn from my mistakes and not expect anything that comes out of Wenger's mouth to be gospel but I suppose that is what near desperation can do to you. Funny things.
The true fact is that we haven't brought anyone other than Campbell in and nothing can be done to change that now.
So what do we do?
I've spoke of my frustration but I'm going to support my team through thick and thin like a good supporter is supposed too.
I'm also going to judge the team in May. Like Wenger has asked. I'll do this because I love Arsenal and respect Arsene but I also believe that he has created a rod for his own back by saying this. Bit like his transfer remarks.
I'll wait to May and I hope that we have had success. I backed Arsenal to win the league at the beginning of the season and I'll keep with that prediction. I have to keep showing that faith despite little doubts beginning to creep in.
These little doubts are only beginning to show because of the fact that we suffer so many injuries to players in key positions but then again doesn't this always happen? I actually feel like I'm going over these things round and round again!
This current Arsenal squad, fully-fit, would win this league. But when is this squad ever nearly even 3/4's fit? Wenger could have rectified this by signing someone but he hasn't and we have to try to trust his judgement.
That is the key word here; Judgement. There will be a lot of that in May if we go trophy-less again this campaign. There will a lot of very disgruntled Gooners and I hope that Wenger is prepared for that.
The season is far from over and it could still be a fantastic year for us. A football season doesn't end in February, it ends in May. So save your judgement until then but Arsene Wenger better be ready because it might be harsh.
Keep it Goonerish..............
