If we’re being really honest the malaise set in almost 13 years ago and it’s been a slow decline ever sense. Once Dein left any coherence at the top of the club left with him. Unsurprisingly our transfer record fell apart soon after. You can say arguably we didn’t have a window that added positive value after the one where we bought Nasri. Some of the stories from back then are horrifying. Like the club identifying Koscielny a year before we bought him but failing to pull the trigger, then buying him a year later for ten times the price he would’ve cost. Also the Griezmann saga where we were in and out several times, told him that we wanted him and stalled him to the deadline then suddenly decided against it. That’s ignoring the panicky moves for junk players we made like Park, Andre Santos, Elneny and Gabriel. A lot of the blame lies with Wenger but at the same time before Dein left we were decisive and hard negotiators. Think it’s no coincidence that after that we were a shambles. The chickens from these years of mismanagement have come home to roost. Club needs a purge of the upper levels.
