Wenger: January signing ‘unlikely’

142

Arsene Wenger has admitted that the chances of Arsenal making a signing in the January window are very slim.

Speaking to the press today ahead of tomorrow’s FA Cup clash against Coventry, the Arsenal manager said, “At the moment, we are not close to signing anybody. If something exceptional turns up of course we will do it, but it is highly unlikely.”

Whether that’s brutal honesty from the manager, or him playing his cards close to his chest is up to you to decide, but seasoned Wenger watchers will probably suggest it’s the former.

The exceptional deal Arsenal do want to do is Julian Draxler, but Schalke are unwilling to sell this month with an official stating, “It is nonsense to suggest we might consider selling him this winter. It will not happen.”

There have been suggestions that club officials met with the agent of Mirko Vucinic this week, but the sticking point there remains Juventus being unwilling to loan the player, and Arsenal prefer a short loan deal for the Montenegrin hitman.

A lot can change in the 8 days that remain of the transfer window, however, but for now, what we have we hold.

Hmm, am I allowed to be slightly disappointed despite the fact that we’re top of the league?

Shot_gunner
Guest

You are… But have faith, we have a strong squad that’s hard to beat at our worst and unplayable at best, I’m always an optimist so I started believed we had a chance of winning the league from the villa game.Even though we lost that game I saw the same strength we finished the league with last season. We since signed mesut ozil and mathieu flamini, we are consistently beating teams we’re supposed to beat.

All that aside we can improve massively, Ox and podolski don’t even have 5 league appearances between them, Cazorla just back to his best, Rambo who just had a months leave and returns just in time for the tough fixtures in Feb.

I’m also very positive because even though we have a series of consecutive tough games in March the spacing between the league games should only leave us really strained for the spurs game that happens after bayern away, we have a full week to recover for the the City and the Chelsea games.

Anyway have faith

Haha I’m sorry but I’m a pretty hardened optimist and I genuinely don’t believe that you thought we could win the league post-Antonio Luna!

The optimist in you should take note that if progress to the QF in the FA cup, it’s pretty likely that the game currently that weekend (Swansea at home) will be moved to mid week some time around the Chelsea game.

Having been indifferent to this transfer window, the Draxler connection (especially in Arseblog News), raised my exictement almost to the same levels as the Ozil levels. So yes disappointed to hear this rather than the “maybe we’ll surprise you”.

It’s always dangerous with the money bags that Chelsea & Man C are to leave such a public target unconcluded. Mata chase couple seasons ago comes to mind.

That brings me to Chelsea – cunts!

“If something exceptional turns up of course we will do it,”

Wenger keeps saying that but is he actually expecting a phone call like this – ‘Hello, Arsene, this is Rosell, I hear you’re in the market for a striker. Well, I have this lad called Messi…’

I don’t think we have the squad depth to win the league, and sooner or later we’ll run out of steam. I hope I’m wrong and eating humble pie at the end of the season, but unlike City and Chelsea, we’re only one or two injuries away from being derailed.

Rectum_Spectrum
Guest

we’re top of the league after suffering multiple injuries at any one time to top top players like arteta, ramsey, theo, chamberlain, giroud, TGSTEL, koscielny, gibbs, rosicky, cazorla, gnabry.

i think we’ll be fine.

Dr Baptiste
Guest

Didn’t City get derailed slightly when they lost Kompany at the back, conceded goals and only ended up 1 point behind us due to their strikers and AM’s hitting form.

Any team is going to suffer if they lose key players.

United are suffering from losing Rooney and van Persie.
Liverpool will suffer now if they lose Suarez.

and even with their supposed “depth”
Chelsea will suffer if they lose Oscar/Hazard
City will suffer if they lose Kompany/Toure/Silva.

It can strike any team, especially if you take away those that are driving the team

So, we should expect too see Draxler in Arsenal colors by the end of the week?! 🙂

Heroldgoon
Guest

We need a new striker Arsene, Relying on Bendtner could prove suicidal for our title ambitions. We are top of the league yes but the job is only half done and i’d hate to see us succumb to our own ignorance when the season ends. Simply need a new striker.

Chair
Guest

Yep, I fear that without strengthening we could come up short. The fixture list in March and April is scary.
Not necessarily a striker, but not necessarily not a striker.

nurle
Guest

Agreed. The renewed faith in Bendtner and all that is good. But as you said, we need a new kind of striker. Not the same big strong guy.

InTheNorthBank
Guest

Is that really true though? The system we use now has been so effective – with Giroud bringing our midfield in to play. In my humble opinion, another big strong guy is exactly what we need – and Bendtner will do just fine. We already have a ‘different kind of striker’ in Podolski and, more often than not, he doesn’t look comfortable in that lone striking role. That’s no criticism of him; I’m sure he could be devastating in a two-man striking partnership (i.e. another system) but for us, he’s far more effective on the left. The same could be said of Walcott.

sciGunner
Guest

Of course Arsene knows we need a striker, in fact the whole world knows (may be except TGSTEL). But the real issue is the availability of good strikers who are willing to switch clubs mid-season (most people on the planet knows this too). There is no point paying 15-20 million for an average striker (who may not better than Bendtner) now, if we can buy a top class player for 30-40 million in the summer. Now please give every one a break.

bandi
Guest

That’s all very reasonable, but we can win the league this season. That hasn’t been the case for a long while, and who knows when we’ll have such a good chance again.

If paying through the nose is what it takes to have a real shot at the title, that’s what we should do. (I know, it’s easy for fans to say that)

Black Hei
Guest

Firstly we already have a real shot at the title. Take note that we are top of the table.

Secondly, buying a big name striker requires more than “paying through the nose”. I am sure if a BIG, really BIG, as in BIG striker is available, JM will be the first to grab em. They need a striker, just like we do. And we all know how disgustingly rich they are.

Gutbukket Deffrolla
Guest

It doesn’t matter how keen you are to spend big if big wants to stay where he is. You cqn want all you like, but if there’s nobody out there who wants to join us now, and whose club are happy to sell him, then we won’t find anybody. If such a player does exist then he had better see us as his dream team or he’ll just plump for the 280,000 a week on offer from any one of a half dozen other Clubs. You have to remember that footballers are not tins of beans, where there is an unlimited supply of the best brand. The sort of player you are dreaming of is unique and he expects unique wages at the best Club, and to everybody who isn’t a Gooner that means the richest Club.

If what I read on the the Daily Blogpost is true, then he was definitely in Valence to watch a certain player that we might not know of and it is unlike Wenger to travel across the continent to watch a player who he is not really interested in signing and whose club isn’t willing to sell. Keeping my fingers crossed and hoping for a pleasant surprise next week but if not, we will still remain top of the league atleast till we visit the saints. FOYS

I’m more surprised that they are willing to sell mata to rivals manure, but not loan Ba to us in the summer.

Chelsea have played united twice this year already in the league. Mata will have no effect on Chelsea now this season by selling him to united. However, united do still have to play both us and City. It’s a cunning move from the special cunt and the club of cunts.

Swedegunner
Guest

typical short-term thinking from oil-spoiled mourinho. he’s still going to play manure in future seasons, where Mata would probably love to show that douche what he could’ve had.

I hope he does sell, it will make beating manure even more satisfying when you imagine mourinho going mental watching it

Keep Calm kids.

Yes it would be nice to get another striker but it’s not the end of the world if we dont.
We have Bendtner, Giroud and Podolski to fill one spot, and we aren’t even that reliant on our strikers.

Hell, I think we could do a good job playing without one.

I’d rather we bought the player we want in the summer than panic now and pay over the odds for someone ordinary.

GoonerHiggy
Guest

Agreed. IMO it’s more important to tie down the top players we have and of course, Wenger. To me the bst news now would be that Wenger, Mert, Sagna and Rosicky have extended their contracts.

GunnerDareMACEDONIA

Pete I agree with you but we are still short one player, walcott absence is massive we are short of one more player like walcott to rely on scoring and assisting and helping giroud when he is not scoring.

Gutbukket Deffrolla
Guest

Who the heck can you think of that’s like Walcott? I can only think of the Ox. If you do come up with a name, you need to ask “does he want to move this week?”, “does he want to move to us this week?”, “does his Club want to sell him this week?”, and “does his club want to sell him to us this week?”. All four answered yes? Go for it, if you can afford him and if some rich team doesn’t gazump you first if word gets out.

Hope we don’t regret this. Would have been nice to at least get someone on loan.

Chrispy

January signing ‘Unlikely’…………. winning the league also unlikely too.

Cant help but feel we’ve missed a trick here if he doesn’t add to our thin squad. Bendtner was never the answer so why is he now? Theo out and much as I like Gnabry, he’s not going to replace Theo’s goals and assists.

I embrace the thumbs down coming my way but come on, when was the last time we had a chance like this to push on and really have a chance to win the whole thing?

Pete
Guest

Believe……

Rhid
Guest

If we end the season a few points of the top the dissapointment will possibly be greater than any of the last 10 seasons. That ‘what if’ feeling knowing an extra forward may well have brought us the extra 5-10 goals needed to nudge us over the line will be truly devestating.

Pete
Guest

This is assuming that there is a forward out there available for a reasonable price that is 10-20 goals a season better than giroud.

Considering Giroud has scored 9 in the first half, you are looking for someone that can score 14-19 goals in half a season. So Suarez or Ronaldo then??

Rhid
Guest

My comment applies to last summers window as well. Also, you have failed to understand what i’m saying. I meant 5-10 goals to our overall total, so this 14-19 thing is nonsense. I don’t intend to take anything away from Giroud, who has been fantastic. It’s that feeling of ‘we were nearly there’ similar to that felt in 2008 and 2011 that will be harder than ever to take IF we fall sightly short come the end of season due to a lack of firepower.

Black Hei
Guest

Sorry but I think your analysis does not hold water.

If you mean we sign someone like Vucinic, and he automatically guarantees us an additional 5-10 goals which translates to an additional 9-12 points? I don’t think so. We play with only 1 striker, having a backup striker is cover, not additional firepower on the pitch. What’s the point of having 3 strikers when you use them one at a time.

Consider the Vucinics, the Berbatovs and the Patos of the world and they are exactly in the same category as Bendter. A striker needing playing time. Only difference is Bendter has been training with us and knows the squad better than either of them.

If someone really solid is available, I think we would have grabbed him. Costa, Jackson Martinez, these blokes are stuck at their clubs, no way they will be let go. Rodrigo? He is a good dribbler. Sign him and you can forget about Draxler in the summer.

A few days ago I said that Wenger was only a 95% manager and got slagged off for it. This shows why I’m right. Sir Alex Ferguson would have made damn sure that we had an adequate number of quality strikers at the club; we wouldn’t have even started with just Giroud. Now Wenger’s crazy tactic of running Giroud into the ground will probably cost us the title. It’s crazy.

oh boy
Guest

Yes, The same Sir Alex Ferguson who made sure that his squad was so adequate that many ManU fans are now blaming him for not bothering about the midfield worries for the past few seasons.

Rad Carrot
Guest

Again, you’re right FG. But nowt we can do about it, unfortunately. Let’s try to keep the belief in the squad and pray to the gods of injuries that they pass over us this season.

Dr Baptiste
Guest

The same Ferguson that left Giggs as the go to midfielder for Moyes with Cleverly and Carrick?

The same Ferguson that basically left Vidic and Evans as the first choice defenders as Smalling and Jones have been awful, while Ferdinand is too old?

The same Ferguson that left United with Nani, Young and Valencia as their widemen?

You’re right, he would have signed some good strikers but shame about the rest of the team. Where are United now with their top strikers? Oh yes, down in seventh.

Fatgooner
Guest

“It’s not enough that I succeed: all others must fail.”

You idiots don’t get it, do you? Ferguson deliberately ran down the United side, and then insisted that the out-of-his-depth Moyes be his successor. This protected and enhanced Fergie’s his legacy. Just look at how great old red-face looks now.

Smart move, if you ask me.

the only sam is nelson
Guest
the only sam is nelson

that’s Demento, totally. Foreign manager who’ll come in and spend loads and win stuff, particularly the Champions’ League, making 2 in 18 attempts look a bit squiffy? No, thanks. Moyesie on the other hand. Ah, yes, “stability” (but no trophies). Ferguson’s history with the Magniers over Rock of Gibraltar essentially demonstrates he’s a sociopath who puts himself first and Manchester United a distant second.

Don’t know that i’d call it “smart” mind, more the cold calculated act of a psycopath. which is why AW will never emulate Ferguson, because he’s not a certifiable Weegie bampot.

Dr Baptiste
Guest

He didn’t sort out the midfield while he was there, and relied upon his strike force against some shocking defences. So to say he would have definitely sorted everything out and made sure we weren’t lacking is, quite frankly in my opinion, complete bullshit.

Ferguson got lucky with his strike forces and the weakening of opponents defences. It’s no coincidence that his teams struggled against our famous 5 and the invincibles defence.

He took a fucking huge chance with his legacy by not strengthening his midfield while he was still there and trying to win last year’s title. Are you sure you aren’t just making this up to try to prove your point?

SAF’s teams were always helped at crucial moments by the ref more than anything else – and it makes a huge difference. All teams knew it was nigh impossible to win at OT, and not because of pure footballing reasons, most teams didnt even try. SAF was a cunt, and i am relieved i dont have to suffer him again.

Arsene basically reads from the same script every transfer window. That’s his way of managing expectations amongst the fans.
It’s better he dashes people’s hopes now and surprise us with a signing later, than raise expectations and disappoint. #KeepTheFaith

AP
Guest

Or maybe fans should stop listening to transfer shite pouring from media outlets every transfer window and just accept whatever signings are made. Its not like they can do much more than that.

GreekTragedy
Guest

Maybe I have no right to complain given our current league standing but I really don’t think we can hold off Chelsea and City without a couple of new arrivals. A striker and a centre back would be wonderful but it’s clearly not going to happen and I just feel we could really live to rue the lack of activity in this transfer window. If injuries don’t go our way, I’m desperately concerned we may have to rely on the likes of Bendtner and Jenkinson – the latter I do rate but is just too raw and easily exposed to be expected to take part in a title push. We’ve already lost Theo, Podolski seems prone to niggly injuries, the Ox hasn’t been vetted as a first team reg and although Gnabry is playing well, I’m not sure he should be thrown in at the deep end at his age. God, I hope I’m wrong.

come on guys… this is Wenger.. when he says he is unlikely to sign anyone.. he will… just before the window closes… it will be like Monreal… practically pulled him outta his arse.. what is ‘likely’ to happen is Wenger will sign a couple of players which is unlikely going to cost the gunners more than couple mil quid… unlikely going to stay fit throughout the rest of the season and highly unlikely a name you guys would have heard before. Sounds too familiar eh ? Welcome to le prof’s mind.

If it is like Monreal then expect an injury next week to prompt the rapid signing of a player we always wanted to sign anyway…

I’m betting on nobody, because that is how Wenger likes to operate.

I know our chances of the title are good this year due to manure being crap, but why do most of you guys think this is a once in a blue moon shot, the current team would compete in an ordinary title race if you get what I’m saying.

This should feel like the beginning of a new era where we can go toe to toe with anyone for the next few years after the stadium move restrictions have been lifted. Instead it feels like we are trying to nick the title before the Russian and the Sheiks buy Messi and C.ronaldo.

Hehe Arseblog were u quoting hip hop rnb croonster Drake at the top there? Prob not. Anyway isn’t draxler amazing? I drool a little thinking about him, so I’ve had a bib sewn into my button down. Personally I’m surprised by his meager goal return this yr. from the looks of hit he’s got the pace, strength and technique to bag a hella lot more, aparentky wenger agrees. I think he’d make a great replacement for theo. Unproven blah blah blah yes, but if there’s anyone in the game with vision for potential it’s Wenger. And me.

Probably, AW see us can score goals from players who play off the CF and that’s how he’ll make use of his great bunch of midfielders.

You get the feeling that with like two good signings we could really consolidate and push for the title this season. What do we do? We seat on our hands and do nothing. I hope that doesn’t come back to bite us. We never seem to learn. We lose this golden opportunity to win the league and Wenger gives his usual cock & bull excuses, I’ll go bat shit crazy.

Virginia Goon

Arsene needs one More window to complete his vision since the addition of the big Ö. That’s my take on this, he wants to add 3 players, a man up front a winger, and possibly a central midfield defender from the rumors it seems. No big deal for me if he misses out this window, it’s been 8 years folks, 8 years, I’m willing to give this one more summer in order for this next wave of arsenal dominance to crash the premiership.

AP
Guest

Thats been my thinking since start of the season. This season is more like “lets see where we max out” kinds and we are overachieving right now. One can see that the squad is not yet complete in terms of composition and balance and Wenger is being very very picky with what he keeps going forward. Hence, many unneeded players have been discarded and the ones coming in are being chosen for very specific and calculated reasons. This season is more end of a saga than start of a new one, more transitional in nature. If Wenger stays, i am expecting to see him being ruthless next season onwards.

Gutbukket Deffrolla
Guest

Wenger said three seasons and this is the first. Running in 1st in January is pure bonus. We shouldn’t be too disappointed if we miss out this season (by a narrow margin) as we would still be riunning ahead of plan.

Yeah, I don’t believe that myself now I’ve written it. I’d be gutted. But I wouldn’t dream of blaming Wenger. January windows are not designed with long term team building in mind.

Possession
Guest

Oscar and Mata are the only two ‘number 10’s’ at Chelsea. Schurrle, Hazard and certainly Lampard, Matic, Ramires and Mikel are far far less effective in that position.

If Mata leaves and Oscar then gets injured ,
Chelsea are no longer title contenders,and it’s a straight fight between us and Man City.
I’m surprised that Mourinho has even contemplated it but his ego looks to have got the better of him. Cocky cunt.

Just want to know if other teams have just done away with their scounts and just wait for a report to surface about who we are interested in. If Jose once claimed Arsene was a voyeur, then I suspect that Jose taps Arsene’s phone.

Jose is a rude, arrogant, mildy intelligent man with a space program’s budget to spend on players that are already on the world stage, and a fine grasp primary school tactics, yet when he gets his inevitable success from this formula, people accuse you of being a hater when you simply ask him to not be a Keith Allen-lookalike dick who gives arsehole soundbites to his adoring journalist fangirls. But no, I have no real problem with him.

Loic Remy looks like a suitable January buy to me. Available for £16m (apparently) but a cash offer could probably get that down further, AW has been keen on him for quite a while and I reckon he’d be a pretty useful back up for the HFB.
