Pundit says Arsenal need to stop being ‘cheap’ and go on a huge spending spree

Posted by

After such a poor showing against Brentford in the opening game of the 2021/22 Premier League season, there’s not too much doubt that Arsenal still need to invest in this transfer window if they want to come anywhere close to reaching their goals by the end of the campaign.

Mikel Arteta will be hugely disappointed by what was a really flat performance from his players across the 90 minutes in west London, but with over two weeks still to go in the transfer window, he does have options if the owners are willing to continue to back his judgment.

That’s something that talkSPORT pundit, Jamie O’Hara, believes is a must, now.

Arsenal were outclassed at Brentford

“Arsenal are cheap, they just wanted someone to come in,” he said on talkSPORT’s Sports Bar Weekender programme.

“If they had anything about them, they would have gone and Carlo Ancelotti or Brendan Rodgers when they could. It’s cheap and shocking and the recruitment is no good.

“They should sign Kieran Trippier, pay whatever they want – even if it is £30million.

“PSG need to get rid of some players; go and get Mauro Icardi up front and then go and get Ander Herrera in midfield!

“It looks like they’ve just signed Brighton’s second best centre-half.”

Arsenal’s long suffering supporters will be hoping that something changes before they take to the field against European champions, Chelsea.

Their recent £97.5m purchase of Romelu Lukaku shows the gulf that currently exists between the two sides.

  1. Ok, I guess pepe for 80M, Auba for 80M, Laca for 50M, partey for 45M, white for 50M, Xhaka 35M is real cheap!!!

  2. Surely Arsenal is my club, the club is declining every season, same story, same promise, same game play every season, they can’t get deals done ohhh Arsenal…

  3. This is hilarious, so much for remaking the club. A middling defender, 2 backups and the same quitters hanging their heads. At this rate, it’ll take 20 years to “remake the club” I called it, Brentford 3, BLMFC 1. This was a loss all the way. Don’t worry, the European champs, then the English champs are up. 3 games, 3 losses, bottom of the table. Queue the planes with banners, Arteta out, Kroenke out, same old story. You thought 8th was bad? Prepare for bottom half, after next season, relegation. No quality player will sign onto this dumpster fire.

  4. Arsene Wenger was kicked out for this. Relegation battle is still far, but second half of table is surely achieved. This trend will not stopped until being relegated next season.
    That will be destined ending for greedy Arsenal fans, who called for A.W. out.
