Poll Results: Gooners Want Defensive Signings!

By on June 19, 2011

More than a week ago, I decided to put up a poll, asking fellow Gooners on the position that needs to be improved the most.  Here are the results, which wasn’t a shocker, in my opinion.

Which position should Wenger focus the most on improving?


As the results show, most Gooners (80%) believe that the Defence should be the position, Wenger needs to focus the most on improving. This is very understandable, considering the team’s obvious defensive deficiencies which cost the team important points last season, especially while holding onto leads (4-4 at Newcastle, 3-2 loss and 3-3 draw with Spurs, the 1-1 draw with Liverpool at the Emirates, etc.)


Defence has always been an issue for the Gunners in the past few seasons, and it needs to be rectified. With the news that Chris Samba is close to becoming a Gunner and Arsenal being hugely interested in signing Gary Cahill, it looks like Wenger has made improving the defence, a main priority.

What do you think? Do you agree with the results? What do you think is the position that Wenger needs to focus on the most? Please share your thoughts and opinions.

Cheers and take care,

    Tall holding midfielder PLZ. Not midgets like song/wilshere who will never win a header in a set piece. We only have two ppl who will win a header(CBs) and then we use a striker?

    It’s pretty clear that we need some defensive signings but a lot of our failings in that department last season, I put down to lack of confidence. Those of you who play golf will know the awful result of the putting yips. The total lack of confidence makes the player dread to see his ball reach the green.
    Once our back four regain the ability to deal with set-pieces, confidence will be restored. This should be obtained by the emergence of new blood coupled with intensive pre-season coaching.
