After yet another embarrassing opening day defeat and hard fought win over Crystal Palace, Arsenal fans are steeling themselves to endure another year of frustration as Arsene Wenger begins his annual summer fumble for players no-one else wants.

Although Wenger has improved his goalkeeping quality substantially with the signing of Petr Cech, it is now exceptionally clear that to have any chance of winning the title, they need to buy a central defender who can defend, turn and stay fit, a striker that can score, and a defensive midfielder to show Francis Coquelin how it's done.

Although many mangers would have seen finishing 14 points behind their rivals as an incentive to improve their squads, Wenger has again resisted calls for additions barring the much-hyped arrival of a 33 year-old keeper that their biggest rivals didn't want any more.

In the wake of West Ham's richly-deserved win, it is inevitable the Wenger will make a panic-induced foray into the transfer market. Will he buy another superstar like Alexis Sanchez, or pay £43 million for a Real Madrid reject who was schooled by a 16-year-old playing his first Premier League game?

The odds don't look good for Arsenal fans, who must already be resigned to another year without a real shot at the title. There seems to be no chance Wenger will buy another central defender, though Per Mertesacker could be replaced by Nelson's Column and there be no noticeable difference in mobility.

His annual love-note to Karim Benzema will again go unanswered and Arsenal, the seventh richest club in the world might end up again with a jumble of misfits and make-dos that will let down their fans once more.
