Arsenal In Danger Of Being Left Behind

Published

on

Life after Arsene Wenger for Arsenal will always be as bumpy and rough as an average Nigerian road, it was something (the ride), majority of the Gunner’s fans dreaded but the exit of the French man is what they were looking forward to.

With his departure came with various names linked to the managerial position, of all the names Unai Emery was the chosen option.

With him came a fresh air of hope, optimism and fresh expectations having won the Ligue 1 with PSG and most especially the Europa League success with Sevilla, a feat he did three times with the Spanish club and although a back to back loss ushered him into the English Premier League but before long he brought stability.

His transfer before the start of the 2018/2019 season saw the intro of fresh legs bringing in Mateo Guendouzi, Benrd Leno, Sokratis Papastathopolous, Stephan Lichtstainer, Lucas Torreira and Denis Suarez in a 79 Million Pound spending spree.

While some of his acquisitions has made meaningful impact, some left alot to be desired nevertheless it indicated a likely new dawn when Arsenal can now go into summer transfer period with high expectations and then subsequently compete with the rest of the top six.

Having got into the finals of the Europa League finals where they lost 4-1 in a dissappointing performance to the London neighbors in Baku, the lackadaisical display by the players showed the kind of attention owner Stan Kroenke has towards on field activities. To the American, it is all about profit, business, while this may be true this is, Kroenke may just be running the club into an average club.

It was announced at the end of the season that failure to qualify for the UEFA Champions League would see the Gunner’s left with maximum 40 Million Pounds to spend in the transfer window.

As if the club’s situation is not funny enough, missing out on Champions league football for the third season running, the transfer fee in the kind of inflated market would barely buy one player talkless of boosting a squad where as much as five players may leave in the summer.

With the kind of success recorded by Man City, Liverpool, and Chelsea this past season in relation to the heavy spending by rival clubs, it is pertinent and Important for Arsenal to spend and spend judiciously lest they are left behind as other clubs evolve with the new trends.
