Arsenal's January transfer period vs match results: Wenger ruining his legacy?

February 1, 2013 By Abdullah Zubair
How many die-hard Arsenal fans are satisfied with Arsene Wenger’s performance during the just-ended January 2013 transfer window? A strong finish this season might save the coach again.
When the Frenchman was appointed back in 1996, Arsenal fans were bewildered as to why an unknown was given charge of one of the biggest clubs in England. They were soon convinced of his quality and sung his name collectively.

Wenger devised a policy on how he wanted to run the club and his tactics worked very effectively. He introduced a playing style which was pleasing to the eyes and is now replicated by many teams in the game.

His achievements were mirrored by the double capture of the EPL and FA cup titles in the 1997/98 and the 2001/02 seasons. Probably his biggest achievement and the cornerstone of every Gunner’s pride came in the 2003-2004 season when Arsenal went the entire season undefeated in the league.

Apart from silverware, Wenger is vastly responsible for the construction of the modern state of the art stadium, ‘The Emirates’. As well as the rebuilding of the former Highbury stadium into Highbury home, the duo is expected to benefit the club for long in terms of revenue.

Wenger has a terrific eye for talent, signing ordinary players and turning them into superstars. Examples include high profile names like Henry, Viera, Fabregas, Van Persie, Adebayor, Ljungberg, Kanu, Kolo Toure and the list can go on.

However, eight years without a title has made many ponder on whether Wenger should quit Arsenal to protect his legendary legacy at the club. It was only a few years back when the Gunners were at par with the likes of Manchester United as major title contenders. Things have now gone from bad to worse with Wenger now claiming that a top four finish is worthy of a trophy itself.

The Frenchman’s philosophy seems to be failing especially when it comes to his youth policy. Wenger had invested a lot in obtaining some of the finest talents throughout the globe and nurtured them into superstars.

However, the same players frustrated by Arsenal’s silverware drought opted for greener pastures. One can refer to Fabregas leaving for Barcelona or Nasri for Manchester City who finally fed their trophy hunger with their current respective club.

Meanwhile, Arsene Wenger did secure three quality players in the summer transfer window but it looks quite obvious that Arsenal need more enforcements to fill voids in their squad. The most recent example on the Gunners’ fragilities has been the midweek tie against Liverpool on home soil.

Arsene has failed to identify the lack of a physical defensive midfielder in the squad and has not made a move for a player in that position, even though quality players including Diame, M’Vila, Yanga M’biwa were available at bargain prices.

Although the Gunners were successful in obtaining Malaga full back Nacho Monreal at the 11th hour, Arsenal’s January transfer period on the whole could largely been seen as a failure. Where is this London club heading to?
