Wenger: “I’m Always Thinking About Transfers”

By on April 26, 2011

Arsene Wenger Arsenal Manager Arsene Wenger looks on prior to the Barclays Premier League match between Bolton Wanderers and Arsenal at the Reebok Stadium on April 24, 2011 in Bolton, England.

As Arsenal’s title hopes gushed mercilessly down the drain, followed by all the blood, sweat and tears that have proven useless in a season full of disappointment, false hope and dejected fans sighing, “so close”, Arsene Wenger had some explaining to do. Fans were calling for new signings to rejuvenate a young, tired and injury plagued side, yet nothing was done and the club did not benefit, and those same calls will be heard again come the summer. But this time, Wenger will listen. He may be as stubborn as anything, but he will delve into a market which he has scarcely dared to tread in recent years – the football transfer market.

“We have the quality, that is for sure. We have to strengthen the squad where it needs and make the right decision on that front. It [transfers] is always in my mind every day.”

It must be astonishingly infuriating to see such fantastic young talents, whom he has nurtured and trained, and seen grow into professionals fail to deliver when for so long they looked so close to doing so. It must be even harder to know, that this team that has failed to deliver in terms of silverware, will bare the brunt of the fans frustration of the last 6 years and the emptiness of that trophy cabinet.

Wenger will do his utmost to keep any prices for players as sensible as possible in a market which values men at tens of millions of pounds. There is little value for the best players at the moment, but what would be invaluable is the joy that Arsenal would feel if they were to win a trophy with the help of some well established, top class leaders who can unite a young, but experienced side to success.

A failed title bid, a heavy defeat against the far better side in Europe and a Carling Cup final that went freakishly wrong, but Wenger is proud of what his Arsenal side have achieved this season:

“The team have had an outstanding attitude and will not be rewarded because of small things, but small things cost you.”

“It is frustrating because the team has produced the efforts.”

“We have to be realistic that it [the title] is very unlikely now, but we have to finish as well as we can.”

Wenger’s final words here resemble strongly in Jack Wilshere’s tweet after the terrible loss to Bolton on Sunday. Wilshere, who Wenger recently described as “the future of the club”

“Very disappointing yesterday but we are Arsenal we will not stop fighting….”

Tell me what you think!

    Wenger must change tactics on all fronts. He must have at least four experienced players in the team at every point. He needs to sign at least two experience possible tall CB, a midfielder (though they are abound in the present team), and an outstanding stricker. He must also change playing tactics, they cannot and should not keep attacking everytime. That is why they loose a 4-0 lead and almost loose the game. Sometimes one should defend but the defence team is not there. He must adjust the team and the playing tactics. The one way approach has not worked and will not as the other teams change.
