True Gunners want signings not apology


Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger issued an apology after his team's embarrassing 3-1 loss in their English Premier League opener against Aston Villa but who wants the apology? I want signings as a true Gunner.

Villa came and wiped the floor with us at the Emirates Stadium and all Wenger can do is apologise. What’s wrong with this once intelligent man?

“I want our fans to be happy and proud of their team and when we lost at home, I just have to be sorry. We didn’t manage to do it today but we have to bounce back and make them happy in the next game,” he said on ESPN.

After sneaking into fourth last season, one would have thought the Frenchman would finally heed the call from the fans to reinforce the squad.

Yes it is only one game but many of us real Gunners were hoping to get off to a better start, especially considering we were at home.

Yes, Arsenal had to play with only 10 men after Laurent Koscielny was sent off midway through the second half but Arsenal were already in trouble before losing a man.

We can blame the referee Anthony Taylor for his poor decisions and controversial calls that really cost Arsenal but the fact remains our team is just not good enough to challenge for honours. We lost to Villa, a team that spent the better part of last season flirting with relegation. That could only mean one thing, TEARS!

Yes, issuing an apology was a reasonable thing to do after such a poor showing, which is really unacceptable from such a big team.

With Fenerbahce coming up in the Uefa Champions League, I foresee another heartbreak.

The transfer window is an opportunity to improve the squad available to you. Thus far, Arsenal have squandered that opportunity.

Arsene Wenger is the person we bestowed as the custodian of our beloved club but his failure to reinforce the squad is tantamount to neglecting his duties.

I can bet the last penny in my pocket that all the 2 622 796 Arsenal Twitter followers will agree that we need to invade the transfer market to progress in the Champions League and at least win our second match of the league.
