It is not a good time at Arsenal right now and Ian Wright is echoing my sentiments as he has writen in his column in The Sun today.
The former Arsenal striker believes that Arsene Wenger may leave the club as he faces the roughest month in his Arsenal career. The reasons this month will be tough are: star players are set to leave (Nasri and Fabregas), there are no new big name signings on the verge of joining the club, we already have injury problems before the season has started and we have tough games to start the season! Imagine we get dumped out of the Champions League by Udinese, how bad would that be?
These are really worrying times to be a Gooner but we have to be strong and continue to believe that we will succeed. One point Wright raised in his column which got me thinking is, How long will it be before Wilshere, Van Persie, Ramsey and Walcott decide they need to move? With the big names of Nasri and Fabregas wanting to leave the club and no other big names coming in, will these other star players also want to leave?
It is every players dream to win titles and trophies and if you are at a club that is not doing this then you may start to think twice and ask for a move to a club that will give you success. I am not saying that we can not achieve success at Arsenal but honestly, it will be tough for us to win this coming season especially if we do not strengthen our squad. Bringing in Gervinho, Carl Jenkinson and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is all good but are these three players capable of taking the club to the next level of winning trophies? I do not think so.
