January. Same message from the Boss, “we are actively looking but it is difficult”. Cobblers. There have been some excellent signings in January – Aubameyang, Arshavin, Reyes, Louis Suarez, Van Dijk, Walcott, Giroud, Coutinho, the list is long.
It comes down to money and contracts.
Of more interest is just where on the pitch Emery will be looking to improve the squad.
So far we’ve had talk of ……
Denis Suarez, a midfielder and presumably possible replacement for Ramsey
Yannick Carrasco, a Belgian left winger
James Rodriguez, attacking midfielder/winger, Galactico (seems a luxury player which is the last thing we need IMO)
All this talk of players for the front half of the team may just be clickbait, as that’s obviously where the sexy stuff occurs. Losing Danny W. also means that an injury to Laca or Auba may leave us short of experienced back up.
Surely our problems this season have come from a lack of quality in the back half of the pantomime cow? Clean sheets are a rarity and we never look comfortable holding a lead. Talking of Holding, losing him has put a big dent in the quality, composed side of our central defending and losing Nacho and Hector, the same with our full back options.
Where would you like to see Unai and Arsenal’s new super-duper purchasing team bolster the squad in the next three weeks?
