No signings in January?


To be, or not to be?

The boss has recently quoted on that he won’t be in the market for any players when the transfer window opens in January. The reason being cited is that we have enough depth and quality in the team, and thus, have no room for signings.

“We made nine changes [against Wigan] and we still don’t have Abou Diabyand Thomas Vermaelen, who are injured. Manuel Almunia and Sebastien Squillaci too.

“Then there are the players we rested like Marouane Chamakh. And Aaron Ramsey will be back in the squad [soon].

“I don’t know where to put the players. If you buy a player you have to give them a chance to play. Already we have international players who don’t get enough games.”

Do you agree with Wenger? Or do you think we need some more quality in the squad, urgently?

Should we get complacent after a victory over a substandard Wigan side at home? Or is our squad enough to win the league this season?

Please Comment.

    well we are one defender short on last year so there’s space for one. Almunia clearly has no future at the club, there is another. In Midfield we arguably only have 1 DM (don’t count Denilson Mr unreliable) so shop him out. Now we have 3 places, GK, CB, DM the three places we could do with strengthening!

    It is not a good decsion form the manage.If the problems of injured we alway have;start by next year what are we going to do.So for me i will think or want the manage or the management of the club to buy more6 player and stop playing with our chanecs of winning something this time.

    To be realistic and factual, we have depth in our team but some of our first team players need to be changed in the january transfer window If we have better offers on better players. If not I don’t see any reason why we should buy again considering the fact that Wellington Silva, Rio Miyachi and Ramsey are all returning back for January

    I do not agree with that decsion form the manage. He should sign in new players to help win something this time.

    wenger is spot one on dis one any players that are brought in will be at the expense of others personaly i would like theo to get loaned out and eljero eliah brought in for 8m what we lack is a PROVEN out &out winger ,walcott is not ready yet and all the rest of our players are make shift wingers i.e nasri rosicky arshavin .what we need is a deadly wide player who has trickery speed and can give the final ball as well as making darting runs outwide ,imagine cesc playn long ball over the top to robben or ribery !! imagine when teams park the bus so instead we jus target their full backs come on wenger dis team needs stars outwide add some flavour to the arsenal pot

    Lets just allow him do his job folks,not that he needs our permission atleast lets stop pestering him. what wenger has done would be appreciated once he goes. He can’t come out and tell everybody who he is after which would always skyrocket the price and the interestng aspect is once we find a talent people always think that if Arsenal thinks that he is good enough then he is good enough and they wait to draw a few more lucrative offers .
    Lets wait and see,I think that he would buy a CB if TV is not fit by january otherwise I agree with him. where is the place to fit a new buy?.
    People are always asking for a GK and DM. Fabianski has done a fabulous job,ok accepted he makes odd mistakes but who is not?,vandersar against West Brom,Reina against us ?.For me, as far as Gk is concerned it is settled,I guess wenger thinks the same. Should he now demote Fabianski to bench after a few good performances?,I don’t think so, after all he won the games at Wolves and Everton.
    As far as DM is concerned what do you all think Wilshere is doing?.Where to play such a frightening talent if we buy a new DM in january?. In attack we already have people whining about not playing.whatever one thinks of Bendtner he was the one who kept us in the title last year with his last ditch goals , can anyone deny that?.
    With Ramsey,Diaby and Vanpersie and TV to come back and wellington silva to join in january we have a frightening squad. And they are all like new signings,of course silva is, so just stop whining and enjoy the breath taking football our team plays and keep the faith because we are on course to something special this term

    I dont know what is happening to this old man… I will advice him to sign on mid fielder in January because all this players, they are going to tied when times come. Just think and dont be selfishness because you think you’re wise.

    The only signing we need is a strong tall experienced striker like Drogba or Schevchenko. Benzima would be great. Vela and potentially Bendtner and even Van Percy could be offloaded.
