This is truly the worst start that Arsene Wenger has had during his 15 year spell as Arsenal Manager, the last time they leaked 8 goals in a match was over 100 years ago. only 3 premier league games in to the season and they look like a team in big trouble.
They are breaking Premier League records by having 3 different players red carded in the 3 league games they have played so far, in previous seasons they have managed to get away with losing 1 or 2 of their big guns for a few games, because they had enough cover, but now, it’s just not possible .
Under the era of Patrick Veira and Co., Arsenal did have a reputation of a tough tackling team, able to mix it up with other teams, but not anymore. clumsy and tackling like headless chickens would be more like it.
With 2 of their most prized assets jumping ship from the Emirates only days before the new season, it is clear to see in recent games that nobody has the presence or the authority on the pitch to guide this team that is made up of a few old heads from last season, but mostly inexperienced young players being drafted in from the reserves to make up the numbers.
Giving the captaincy to Robin Van Persie has not worked, he looks a shadow of the player he was last season, Wenger has left it all too late, and with the sale of Fabregas and Nasri, every club knows they have money to spend, and have decided to bump up there asking price for any player Arsenal are interested in.
How many players could Arsene Wenger possibly sign within a few days???? And even if he manages to get a few players in, they will need to come straight in to the first team and adapt quickly. Wenger has made a huge blunder, and as an Arsenal fan its difficult to see one of the greatest managers of our modern time suffer like this.
