Tactical Analysis: Where did it all go wrong for Arsenal?
The article is to show where Arsneal lacks at present and what Arsene Wenger shall do to bring the best out of the players and get the fans back in his own side. Arsenal have boosted their squad by adding Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez but still are not at the right end of the table and I suppose these are the reasons for their failure. Arsene needs to work his magic and make Arsenal a force to reckon in both Barclays Premier League and the UEFA Champions League.
It's been a busy summer for Arsenal and it looks as though Calum Chambers is going to be Arsenal's fourth official signing of the summer. Chambers is an exciting young talent with the versatility to play at RB, CB and CM and is England U19s current captain.
With the signing of Mathieu Debuchy to replace Bacary Sagna many thought the status quo would be maintained for Jenkinson and he would continue to be the understudy at RB for Arsenal. The signing of Chambers indicates that this might not be the case, although fans of Jenkinson are hoping Chambers is mostly being signed as a centre-back.
Reports today suggest Jenkinson may be on his way to Hull in a £3m deal however Sky Sports website has a video interview with Steve Bruce that mentions a loan signing which could be the ideal solution for all parties.
Jenkinson is a born Gooner and whilst it would be great to see one of the fans taking to the field every week, if the manager doesn't think he is up to it - or at least not right now - then it makes sense for the club to move him on. Sentimentality has no room in modern football and sadly Jenkinson might be a casualty of that.
If indeed the lovingly dubbed Corporal does move on this season then Arsenal have signed a superb player to take his spot in Calum Chambers. He hasn't played much for Southampton but the general vibe coming from Saints fans is they are more upset at the prospect of losing Chambers than they were Shaw. And if there is one thing Saints fans know better than most it is top quality young British talent.
Wenger is quote as saying Chambers is a gamble but a gamble he thinks is going to pay off and if you fancy a little gamble yourself you could check out the top casino games at Red Flush. Wenger's full quote on Chambers was
"He can play at centre-back, right-back and central midfield. I hope he will give us competition for the players in these three positions. He hasn't played many games, no, but the English players on the market in England are very expensive and at the end of the day I was ready to take a gamble because he is a player for the future."
Arsenal have made a real statement this summer with their transfer business buying up a mixture of experienced Premier League players, World-Class talent, promising British youth and viable competition in goal.
The Gunners were almost there last year for an epic double but injuries and results against title rivals ultimately cost them and they'll be keen not to make the same mistake again. With Sanchez, Debuchy, Ospina and Chambers joining an already insanely talented team it is hard to look past Arsenal for more silverware this season but if the past nine years has taught Gooners anything it is not to get your hopes up too high.
With everything going on it's bloody hard though!
