At some point though transition must become fruition and this must commence next season.
I feel incredibly frustrated about our club, largely because I do not think that any of our rivals are that great, I know that ‘on our day’ we can beat all of them, but that day rarely comes.
What we do not have and what Wenger has consistently failed to address is an answer to beating teams intent on defending, Hleb will run at defences but he WON'T be terrifying them with both pace and skill as they all know that he can’t pass or score, whereas Ronaldo and Robben can. Walcott potentially yes, but he is far from the end product and Rocinsky and Freddie will not beat their man. RVP and Henry can beat their man, but the wide option is more reliable.
A healthy squad needs competition in all places, when I mention Cahill the reply is often ‘but we’re ok in midfield,’ well if we are, how come that our midfielders score so few goals?
I’m not convinced by many of our players, Denilson and Walcott are far from ready, the latter (even with his pace) rarely beats his man and passes poorly, Eboue has major defensive flaws, Hleb is just poor, Rocinsky is still waiting to mature and Ade’s goals to chances ratio is not particularly good, whilst Flamini is simply not the real thing. Expensive but crap Baptista must go, as should Aliadiere.
Then we have Freddie, once great, but now sadly fading away but always in our hearts.
For me the ONLY position where we are well covered is in defence (not goalie) yes, like the rest of the team they are a bit out of form, but I wouldn’t make too many changes there, maybe I’d play Hoyte more, but it is other areas that need to be addressed first.
So I would definitely buy a goalkeeper, I would buy a goal scoring midfielder ie Cahill (or someone similar), I would buy a wide player with pace who can beat his man and I would consider (depending upon how good Bendtner is going to be) buying a forward.
All of the purchases MUST be world class and quality, three world class players and maybe four. We cannot afford to have anymore players in this side that are ‘potentially good,’ we are too far behind the leaders to piss about buying unfulfilled youngsters, we need results.
