Arsene Wenger: His Arsenal Job Could've Been Made Much Easier Had He Signed These Players...

One can't help but think, had Arsene Wenger signed better players in the transfer window just gone, his Arsenal job could've been made so much easier.

The Gunners ultimately panic-bought players at the end of the window, signing unlikely targets such as Park Chu-Young, Andre Santos and Yossi Benayoun.
