In an interview with, Wenger was telling us how hard they are working on making new signings and that he hopes to bring in ‘one or two’ new players.

I hope he did not really mean one or two as we need close to five new players this summer. We understand that it is not easy signing the players you want and that it takes time.

“We are working very hard on it,” he told “For me, the best thing is not to talk too much about it. The more you speak about things, the less chance you have to achieve them. The only thing that I can promise you is that we will work very hard and we have had some long nights to achieve what we want to achieve.

“I can understand [the impatience among the fans]. Believe me, I know all the clubs in the world and everybody needs the same players for the same positions. If there were an obvious choice, people would have already made their decisions. We are at the top level and therefore need exceptional quality to strengthen our side. I can understand that people say ‘you have money, just go out and buy’. But it’s not only that, we want to find the quality we need.

“I have said many times that we were very close to winning things last season, despite the disappointment we had at the end. I hope that provokes a response from my players. We were so close this time we want to come back and achieve it.

“My responsibility is first of all not to lose players and then to add and make us stronger.

“Let’s hope we can bring in one or two more additions of top quality.”

  2. gervinho,when will he be signed to the emirate and will wenger sign both samba and cahill

  3. MattinFlorida says:

    We need to GET RID of people: Almunia, Diaby, Denilson, Clichy, and Bendtner…in order (and maybe Chamakh at the break if he’s as god awful as he was from november on, last year).

    Until those people are gone, it doesn’t matter what we do on the buy side. Instead, we’ll keep most of that trash, and sell Cesc and Nasri. DAMN IT, WENGER!!!!

  4. Wonde says:

    If arsenal can’t keep their star players,they shouldn’t be expecting arrival of star players(to b honest i don’t know if there’re many fans that optimistic).i used to support arsenal,but, wenger frustrated me.i’ve joined chelsea.

  9. jazbo says:

    Dan, thank god you joined chelski, let’s hope rest of you stupid gits do the same.
    Christ I hate our supporters every end of season its’ the same old shit…Blah, Blah,Blah!!!!

    Gotta laugh, fans who cant even read and write properly telling a multi million ££ company, how to spend there money, like they realy know something the management dont,
    If you are a fan-support your club,If you dont like it go elsewhere.

  11. oldtimer says:

    Well done Dan great to hear youve left. This site 5 words ‘What a load of bolla@#s. Go write for Manure.

  12. Jazbo your the man, Den fuck off. I believe in wenger abiilty as a man and coach. We don’t need five players, all we need is three or two includin gervinho. Get work permit for Roy, sign cahill, get videl or mata. The talent is there, just need to focus. Wenger can beat spur,city,manu and chelsea with jack,rambo an emmanuel in our midfield. Lets go guys

  13. Marto-fab says:

    Do we really need Benzema? Which position will he fit in?

  14. GodKnows says:

  15. TrueWisdom says:

    We just need a new goalkeeper, tall strong defender, good defensive midfielder and maybe another striker

  16. UMOH EKWO says:

    Yes I agree totally. We need GP, two CD one SK and one LFB. Otherwise, the night mare continues next season.

  17. chukwu gerald says:

    aw, that is bullshit to me, is arsenal goin for top class players or average players all those players are average players, and we have too many of them right now, other clubs are goin for quality and we are goin for quantity, which way arsenal

  18. chukwu gerald says:

    it’s high time wenger do away wit all this players who are nt happy there and replace, and they shud learn how to tire players down with a loger contracts as other clubs are doin they are there doin nthin at the end of the day u will sayin the ve been workin tirelessly tryin to recruit players.
