Our resident Arsenal fans in the Football Transfer Tavern have been wishing the hours away this week, hoping that time hurries up so they can put the wrongs of West Ham United at home right against Crystal Palace away at Selhurst Park this Sunday.
In what will be a tough game for Arsene Wenger’s men at one of the most vociferous venues in the country, Arsenal will need nothing short of three points to ensure they stay close to their title rivals.
Against West Ham, it was nothing short of an absolute nightmare for the Gunners whose fans had to watch Petr Cech uncharacteristically make two high profile errors that resulted in goals for Cheikhou Kouyate and Mauro Zarate.
It can’t get much worse for Cech who along with his team-mates would’ve received an absolute rollicking by Wenger following the full-time whistle last weekend you’d imagine.
Outside the fixtures themselves, Arsenal fans have also been torturing themselves over their club’s lack of transfer activity with the Karim Benzema rumours the only ones the club are really clinging onto right now.
For whatever reason, Arsene Wenger and Arsenal really do wait it out when it comes to transfers and compared to other clubs, they really are slow on the uptake and non-aggressive when it comes to the window.
So much so that we’ve managed to devise an entire eleven built out of summer transfer targets that are not Gunners players at present.
