This time 7 years ago, Arsenal won their last trophy and it feels like forever ago. I remember us winning that trophy and how the excitement felt, the jumping up and down and celebrating. I miss that winning feeling so much, I miss seeing our players that happy, I miss the Invincibles, I miss the parade. I also hate getting stick from my Man u and Chelsea friends too.
Don’t get me wrong, I love Arsenal through and through. I am a positive Gooner…every season I am filled with excitement, optimism and hope that Arsenal are going to win something but after the season we have just had I am feeling a little less positive about the 2012/2013 season. If we had an exciting summer of signing new players and bringing fresh feet to the team then I’d definitely be more optimistic that a trophy will be ours next season, but its looking like we are just going to struggle through again with only one signing. Wenger has been quoted as saying this is going to be a ‘quiet’ transfer window for us. Something I think I along with a lot of other Gooners are in disagreement with. It’s been very clear this year that we need to strengthen our squad. One player being bought is not enough.
I think we’d all feel a little better about things if Wenger and the board were a little bit more communicative and reassuring with the fans. We’ve failed to sign Van Persie before the Euro’s and now we face another long summer of waiting to find out whether our best player is staying. A repeat of the Nasri and Fabregas transfer drama.
Wenger, Gazidis, Kroenke and Peter Hill-Wood are all failing Arsenal at the moment, something has gone terribly wrong between the manager, board and the club. Normally the best situation with a 7 year itch is Divorce…But who should we be Divorcing?
