Frank Warren is not ‘appy with transfer policy at Emirate Stadium
The legendary boxing promoter was honest in his assessment of the North London derby defeat insisting the Gunner’s need new blood. Warren exclaimed:
“It went t**s up. We need to buy some quality players. I was very disappointed with Marouane Chamakh in the game. He missed open chances and didn’t seem rugged enough for me. Sebastien Squillaci and the other guy (Laurent Koscielny) don’t come across as real quality players to me.
“Arsenal need to spend some money on players. The squad needs strengthening. For the last five years we’ve talked about youngsters coming through. A lot of the good youngsters have left us.
“For the life of me I don’t understand why we’re not capitalising on that. It seems every time Chelsea or Manchester United fall over, we never capitalise on that.”
Frank Warren has spoken for the majority of Arsenal supporters. In fact, he has simply reiterated what the fans have pleaded for a number of season’s. Nobody doubts the attacking verve of Arsene Wenger’s side, they remain a joy to watch with their bewitching movement and pin point passing. But there seems a lack of heart especially at the back.
While Warren might be a little harsh on the back four, the absence of Thomas Vermaelen is hurting the Gunners and better reinforcements than Sebastian Squillaci are needed if we want to compete for the big trophies.
