It’s the same old story at Arsenal.
A first half of the season flourish followed by second half mediocrity, has once more left the Gunner’s battling for top four football after looking so promising early on.
Arsene Wenger’s men had their fans’ believing a little longer than most campaigns this time round however, as it was only back in February, Arsenal beat now Champion’s Leicester 2-1 at the Emirates, in what many were predicting to be a title decider.
Instead of catching the wind beneath their sails and carrying that momentum forward, the Gunner’s have won only 4 Premier League games since, were knocked out the Champions League and forfeited their FA Cup title in what was a weak performance against Watford.
The acquisition of mega stars Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez had promised so much for the Arsenal faithful, yet while the pair have certainly improved the side, Arsenal still lack a cutting edge and a touch of quality that could push them on past their inevitable mid-season dip.
Fans have been crying out for Wenger to make more signings like those of the former Real Madrid and Barcelona players calibre, especially a world class striker, something the Frenchman’s side have oh so lacked since the departure of Theirry Henry.
Wenger can no longer ignore the cries at the Emirates, and former Monaco boss must spend this summer. Infact, Wenger’s job relies on it, as after almost two decades at the helm of the North London side supporter’s are becoming increasingly frustrated at the lack of success and refusal to spend.
Seeing names such as James Rodriguez – the young Colombia and Real Madrid midfielder – being linked with a summer switch to the Emirates is certainly encouraging, but there has to be more.
Arsenal fan’s at the Tavern have given us their summer wish-list of superstars, who could potentially follow James Rodriguez and propel the Gunners to title glory next season…….
