Patience is a virtue when it comes to Arsenal. They have had to endure the belittlement of critics and fans alike. However, it is easy to see the progress being made at the Emirates.
Arsene Wenger knows it is a now or never moment for Arsenal, this surely will be his last season and more importantly his last chance to bring the gunners back to their glory days. The Frenchman has a squad of very talented players however he needs to add to his side.
If reports are true that he has been given the green light to splash the cash, then now is the time to do so.
For years he has not been under great pressure to spend due to his already outstanding squad, but old habits die hard as we have witnessed his arrogance to spend big in the recent years in the transfer window.
The one key aspect is to spend, and not only spend but to spend wisely. A certain Luis Suarez has been the talking point of Arsenal's transfer gossip. The Uruguayan was second top goal scorer in the Premier League last season.
His eye for goal and clinical finishing is just what the gunners require to boost their silverware hopes. Not only is he able to bag key goals but he has brilliant technique and skill on the ball which may fill in a missing gap in the North London side's depository.
Swiss defender Johan Djourou is the only remaining soul from Arsenal's last trophy winning season. But even he’s been shipped out on loan to Hamburg.
The signs are always promising for Arsenal every season, whether it be their 2008 2-0 Champions League win in Milan or reaching the 2011 League Cup final, but they falter time after time.
They boast a side of genuine quality—Jack Wilshere and Santi Cazorla could walk into any Premier League team—but are still missing that final component: a winner.
Wayne Rooney understands how to triumph, he’s served under the greatest winner of all-time in Sir Alex Ferguson and his experience can propel Arsenal toward success.
He needs a fresh start after enduring a difficult campaign last season, and the Emirates Stadium would be the ideal setting for him to get it.
His versatility means he could lead the Gunners line one week and slot in behind Olivier Giroud the next, interchanging with Cazorla and Theo Walcott as Arsenal ruthlessly dispatch their opponents.
They have goals in the side – with Theo Walcott, Lukas Podolski and Oliver Giroud contributing the lion’s share.
Their defensive record was among the best in the league last season. They have all the hallmarks to be champions once again, but just need to walk the walk next season.
Wenger has hinted how it may be his last year in charge of the side, and what best way to bow out than with a Premier League title 10 years on from their last?
