Arsenal fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern are still reeling from their North London derby disappointment and the most common response from our regulars in the tavern is that the Gunners simply should have bought better in the transfer window.
Arsene Wenger was linked with a host of top names but failed to land that key central defensive midfielder they need so much and Mathieu Flamini’s weekend mistake only compounded the misery coming from the Gooners in the tavern.
Not only that, but as one of our regulars points out, Arsenal have been struggling to keep hold of their top players in recent seasons, which leads our landlord to pull out this chart he found over the weekend.
Whilst the likes of Robin van Persie and Samir Nasri may have jumped ship, there are rather surprisingly THREE Arsenal players who are loyal to the club – well in terms of the footballing world obviously!
Theo Walcott, Abou Diaby and Tomas Rosicky have all been proudly wearing the Arsenal shirt since 2006 and are approaching having been at the club for a decade.
As our punters note however, it’s a shame only one of those players is really worth very much!
Have a look at the most loyal players in the Premier League for yourself!
