Arsenal slumped to a 4-3 defeat to Liverpool on the opening weekend of the Premier League, with a side bereft of first teamers.
Wenger knew his side would start the season without a number of players, but neglected to bring in fresh faces with Granit Xhaka the only player to head into The Emirates this summer.
Arsenal Fan TV was awash with fans pulling their hair out and cursing Arsene Wenger for yet another summer of inactivity, and our own Jason Cundy understands their frustration.
It seems every summer he has said the same thing as the transfer window flutters by with Wenger failing to do enough to turn his side from also rans into real contenders.
Speaking after yesterday’s defeat, Cundy decried the insanity at The Emirates as the same thing has happened yet again:
I predicted this would happen last week whilst on the radio and have been proved right, as Arsenal have yet again been found wanting.
Starting the season with Chambers and Holding at centre back when Mertesacker’s injury occurred weeks ago and Gabriel’s took place a week before the season kicked off, is criminal.
They have been linked with Mustafi and whilst it seems likely that they will bring him in, why has it taken so long to wrap up the deal?
They needed strengthening before the injuries yet Wenger has again sat on his hands, and now his side have duly been exposed by Liverpool.
It’s the same old story with Wenger and Arsenal, I’m bored of it and Wenger’s comments and the fans must be bored of it too.
Things have been freshened up at Old Trafford with Jose Mourinho and players, the same at City, Chelsea and Jurgen Klopp has breathed new life into Liverpool yet Arsenal remain the same.
It brings to mind Einstein’s definition of insanity – Arsenal doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.
