We’ve spent £100m (give or take)
We’ve brought in players in all the positions that needed reinforcement. We have a top keeper, a world class centre back, a block of solid Granit in front of our defence and a pacey fox in the box striker, whose quick feet should compliment our existing strike force.
We have 4 shiny new players who can walk straight into the first team – 3 in their peak years and one a fantastic young prospect who is already well in advance of his years.
We’ve got rid of (and I hate this phrase) some of the dead wood.
We’ve done the decent thing and allowed young players who need time on the pitch to gain experience elsewhere.
All in all, I’m very happy with our transfer activity this summer.
There are eminent bloggers on this site who will say that had we concluded our business earlier we might not be 5 points behind the league leaders, or that we should have splashed out £60m on a worldie striker – I can’t argue against these points, we will know if these criticisms are justified at the end of the season.
Personally, I am optimistic and looking forward to the coming season with real hope that we can achieve something special. How do you view Arsenal’s transfer business? … have your say and vote in the poll below ….
