Last season ended with a bitter taste for Arsenal fans. Having been in the title chase for much of the season, it was harsh when late season slip ups against Wigan, Tottenham, and Blackburn left many wondering about what could have been if only a few results went differently.
Now this summer, Arsenal look to build after a promising campaign last season, and try to end their every extending trophy drought. Wenger would finally be given cash to spend to bring in new blood, and Arsenal would finally mount a serious title challenge, after falling short the past season.
However, now with only less than a month left in the transfer window, fans again have an all too familiar bitter taste in their mouth because in a summer that promised much, delivered far less. With rumors that Wenger had up to £45 million in his coffer to spend, many fans expected at least one big signing this summer, with a flurry of other players coming in as well.
So far Arsenal have watched as Eduardo, Merida, Senderos, Silvestre, Gallas, and most recently Campbell have all moved on from the club, and in return, only new boys Chamakh and Koscielny have come in as reinforcements. In truth, many, if not all those transfers were expected as the season ended, and Arsenal have yet to truly open their bank account this season.
For those that believe Arsenal are still in need of more changes, whether if be transfers, player's attitudes, or even coaches, here are 5 things that need to happen this summer, in order for Arsenal to mount a title challenge and end this summer on a high note.
