Arsenal FC are the laughing stock of the Premier League and a ridiculous joke. At the very beginning of this transfer window, that just closed late last night, it was stated by sources close to A that this would be the “greatest overhaul in the club’s history”. Really? Let us take a look at the recent comings and goings.
First the signings for players coming in:
Nuno Tavares joins us from Benfica – July 10
Sambi Lokonga signs from Anderlecht – July 19
Ben White joins from Brighton – July 30
Martin Odegaard completes move from Real Madrid – August 20
Aaron Ramsdale signs from Sheffield United – August 20
Takehiro Tomiyasu joins from Bologna – August 31
Now the ones who have left:
End of loan: Dani Ceballos returns to Real Madrid – June 30
End of loan: Mat Ryan returns to Brighton – June 30
End of contract: David Luiz leaves the club – June 30
Loan: Dinos Mavropanos rejoins Stuttgart – June 24
Loan: Matteo Guendouzi joins Marseille – July 6
Loan: William Saliba joins Marseille – July 15
Permanent: Joe Willock signs for Newcastle United – August 13
Loan: Lucas Torreira joins Fiorentina – August 25
Permanent: Willian leaves the club by mutual consent – August 30
Loan: Reiss Nelson joins Feyenoord – August 31
Loan: Alex Runarsson joins OH Leuven – August 31
Loan: Hector Bellerin joins Real Betis – August 31
With the exception of Joe Willock we didn’t really sell anyone. Willian – I’ll grant you that; he did something good for the club. He knew it wasn’t working out for him at the club or for the club and his salary was a stumbling block for the club. So he agreed to tear up his contract and leave for free. David Luiz’s contract ended. Who else have we been able to sell? Out of this list Guendouzi & Torriera look to be gone on permanent deals after the loan period is over. Maybe Bellerin as well.
This club has mismanaged the funds. At 150 million GBP Arsenal spent the most of all clubs in England and we haven’t addressed our weaknesses and are bottom of the league with 3 games played, 9 goals against and 0 goals scored. Shambles FC with a lightweight manager in Arteta and Edu who is crap at signing players. Useless!
