Premier League: Biggest 'what if' moments answered (2)

Published 2 Comments

What if Arsenal kept their stars?

What if Arsenal had managed to keep hold of agitating stars like Emmanuel Adebayor, Cesc Fabregas, Samir Nasri and Robin van Persie?

At one point or another, all of these players held to club to ransom, subsequently forcing Arsene Wenger to sell.

Coupled with the heavy debt of moving to the new Emirates stadium, Arsenal had a revolving door with world-class stars going out and nobodies coming in.

That fact has been to blame for the reason Arsenal have gone eight years without silverware but would it have been so different?

According to the simulation if Arsenal had kept hold of all of the above players they STILL wouldn't have won anything.

Their best performance would have been in the 2012/13 season when they finish third.

So Arsenal fans can stop blaming Ivan Gazidis' attempts to balance the books for the trophy drought and start pointing fingers elsewhere.
