No signings in January, is Arsene right?

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger

Arsene has come out to say that he will not be adding to the Arsenal squad in January. Since then there has been a chorus of criticism and disbelieve at his statement. However, I tend to agree with the Professor this time around.

The only positioning we had previously was in the goalkeeping department, and how we crave for a solid goalkeeper to shore up our defence. But since Fabianski came into his own, I don’t believe we need an addition in that department. Also I don’t think there is a keeper that is worth the money and would be willing to come to the Emirates.

All the goalkeepers we have been linked with previously like Schwarzer, Green, Lloris etc have all not been impressive so far. Each has made blunders and if we were to pay anything above the GBP2 million for Schwarzer, I would rather stick with Fabianski.

Elsewhere, I don’t see that we have a problem. In defense, Arsene has already brought in 2 players in the summer and I am sure he will not add another one in January. We are also bless with an abundance of quality in midfield and attack so no additions needed there.

So when Arsene says he is not buying anyone this January, I am all for it. Better to save the dosh for the next transfer window if Cesc leaves.

    No he is not right he is deluded a Keeper is a massive must and an english centre half is essential now as the latest two have the defending know how of an under ten footballer!

    How can you be blinded by Fabianski’s recent run of OK-ish performances?? Remember, this is The Arsenal! Your attitude is one of those who is content with fourth place finishes and mediocrity in a poor league where the law of averages says we will comfortably beat your West Ham’s and Villa’s of this world to maintain the status quo. This league is there for the taking and the signing of Given (atleast til the summer when Szczesny is ready to take his rightful place) allied with a solid def midfielder, could be what sees us over the finishing line and imagine how a (Carling) Cup victory would galvanise the squad in Feb!

    I have mixed feelings. Our Mid and Attack is okay, no immediate attention is required there, but our defense has been our chink in the armour this season. The irony is that, it is attributable to the 2 players who were brought in to strengthen it this summer itself. So I don’t anticipate any spending here.
    Hell, I would have preferred a Cech-esque No.1, but Fabianski has been nothing short of amazing, so it is fine for now.
    I think the only team wanting to spend in the winter would be Chelsea. 3 players get injured, they drop 11 points. And they talk about us relying on a few players 😛

    fabianski has shown what a great shot stopper he is but he hasnt demonstrated any dominance on crosses. A big opposition player in the box with a high ball lobbed in gives me the jitters.
    The centre back position is still vacant as well….vermaelen is fine but which one alongside him?
    none are the quality required for winning the main trophies.
    Too stubborn too much ego …wont change.
