Arsene Wenger, at last, splashed out big cash to improve three problem positions for Arsenal.
Granit Xhaka, Lucas Perez and Shkodran Mustafi were all drafted in to improve the options in central midfield, forward and defence as Le Prof looks to shift some of the pressure on his shoulders.
Despite spending big, this summer may indeed to be another case of ‘What If?’, in what is surely now a chronicle of similar tales across the latter portion of Wenger’s reign in charge.
With the two Manchester giants breaking records in the market this summer, the failed pursuit for the likes of Alexandre Lacazette could ultimately haunt the Gunners.
Much to the annoyance of the Emirates faithful in the Transfer Tavern, some of their fellow drinkers have constructed an eleven based on what the club could have had if Wenger wasn’t, you know, Wenger.
It makes pretty grim reading for the Gunners, to say the least.
