The 24 players Arsenal have been tipped to buy in the past 3 days!

By Sir Hardly Anyone

Yes this is it, this is true, and no one can tell you any different.  In the past three days alone, websites, blogs and newspapers have mentioned 24 players in a grand total of 57 reports concerning who Arsenal are going to buy.

According to the consensus Arsenal need at least half a team replacing, hence the huge number of purchases.  However at the same time there is not a single word about

a) how to balance the 25, remembering that only 17 players can be foreign grown

b) how to integrate such a huge number of incoming players all at once

c) what such purchasing would do to Arsenal’s image in the footballing world and whether any players of merit would want to come to a club that was going to turn itself so upside down on such a scale.

d) why anyone would think buying players en masse is going to work, when we have been bringing new players in by the shedload since Mr Wenger left, and all that has happened is that we have slipped further and further down the league.

e) how Mr Wenger, in his most succesful years with two doubles and an unbeaten championship plus a European cup final did this with modest levels of purchasing, and indeed a fair amount of selling of players at a profit.

f) why we should turn our defence inside out when we have  the fifth best defence in the league and only conceded one goal more than Man U.  If we need one thing it is the way to get the goalscoring up.

No none of that is talked about.  Instead we are going to have an almighty list of players we are tipped to buy, so that the club can be criticised when it doesn’t happen.

Of course I can’t read every source to create this list, but these are the one’s I picked up in just a hour or so’s meander around the media.

And this season, for a change, instead of creating a list in order of the players I though we might do it in the order of the sources, just so we can see who, by the closing of the window (whenever that is, for as I mentioned before that hasn’t been sorted out yet) who has done the most to disrupt Arsenal and undermine support for the club.

So there we have it.  In the disruption stakes Football London, the obvious favourite, has, on its own, listed ten players that Arsenal are interested in signing.

And do remember, this is just the start.

Transforming the truth about Arsenal and football

  1. Either Darren Wells or Darren Bent are being less than honest in the Mirror whose headline states “Mikel Arteta warned he could be sacked if Arsenal do not win Europa League”.

    Reading the article is a total waste of time, as there is no mention of a warning within it, let alone the identity of the person issuing the aforementioned warning.

    Darren Wells is a “Digital Football Writer”. Darren Bent is an Ex-Spud. Not much expertise in evidence here.
