Convincing Win Over Fulham Ensures No New Signings

After the convincing win over Fulham, Arsene Wenger admitted that there were no “imminent signings” and that no-one will come in before the game against Fenerbahce on Tuesday. He also said he would rather focus on the upcoming matches and then see what will happen from there.

What is clear after we comfortably beat Fulham with some excellent counter attacking football, is that with 2 wins under our belts in the last 4 days, that Arsene won’t be forced into making any signings.

Giroud and Podolski are now scoring, Bacary Sagna and Jenkinson are comfortable playing in the middle and on the right of our defence and Aaron Ramsey, Tomas Rosicky and Santi Cazorla are all playing very well. Theo is coming into form and even Szczesny had a good game yesterday.

So it’s hardly surprising that Arsene is using these performances as an excuse not to strengthen the team or spend any money. After the frustrating summer and the debacle against Aston Villa, it seemed that Arsene was ready to finally splash the cash. We heard stories about Benzema and Di Maria possibly coming to Arsenal, as well as Yohan Kebab. But now it seems, they were just using those names to appease the fans.

Anyway, back to yesterdays game against Fulham. There were only 2 changes from the midweek game against Fenerbahce – Koscielny was out injured so Sagna filled in next to Mertesacker and Jenkinson came in at right back. Wilshere was rested and Podolski started on the left and it was clear before the game (if you follow his Twitter feed) that he was raring to go against Fulham.

And so it proved. He scored two really excellent goals and looked happy on the pitch. He’d been “linked” to moves back to Germany in the week but he looked fantastic yesterday. The lads followed their dominating performance in Turkey with an almost complete performance against Fulham, with the midfield of Ramsey, Cazorla and Rosicky looking particularly formidable.

The players are doing really well at the moment, but as usual the only worry is if we pick up any injuries to our midfield (well, to anyone really) and the question is do we have enough strength in our squad to cope for the whole season. I don’t subscribe to the notion that our first eleven can “beat anyone” but I do think it is a very good starting eleven. But after that, even Arsene Wenger has to admit we’d struggle.

  1. Wenger better sign some players or there will be an uproar at the Emirates,just because we turned over a turkish pub side and Fulham doesnt exactly make this squad world beaters.

  2. Arsenal is a good side….when the squad is fit & fired up,they can match any team…my worry is lack of squad depth,we need at least 3 quality players sandwiched with young talented prospects like Gnabry,zalelem,chuba..thin squad will not do us any good,we have so many cup competitions that will definitely put strain on our players,some of them will burn out..

  3. A win is a win. Stop being negative. Just because we won it did not give you a chnace to gripe gripe gripe. To hang yourself.
