I think you’re right.
We had a great squad, in fact possibly as good as most other teams in the PL, but we lacked the game changing players that every successful club has had, including us.
When we were at our most successful we had match winners like Henry, Bergkamp, Pires, etc, and it’s the lack of this quality that has seen us fall short every season at the Emirates.
I know there are other factors like injuries but the failure to bring in more than one or two of this type of player has cost us, not only trophies but the exodus of our only top quality ones.
Wenger had the perfect opportunity, a couple of seasons ago, to really make a statement and buy a couple of real top quality players, but for some stranger reason bought only a GK, and it’s that decision that has turned things against him.
He didn’t have to be like Man City Man U or Chelsea, all he had to do was show a bit of ambition and buy a world class striker and maybe a winger.
The lift it would have given the supporters and players would have been immense, and even if we hadn’t won the title, at least it would have given the club a buzz which we desperately needed rather than doing nothing and going stale.
It’s as if he wants to make it as difficult as possible, and to show the big clubs you don’t need to spend to be successful, and it clearly hasn’t worked.
