The Arsenal Story so Far and What's Needed to Get Gunners Back on Track

abdul wadood sallouhContributor IDecember 17, 2008

Arsenal's story of inconsistency continues, as they drew with mid-table Middlesbrough this weekend, 1-1.

It's been a rocky month and a half for the North London giants, as they only collected 10 points from seven matches. Winning by 2-1 scores over rivals Manchester United and Chelsea, but also losing 2-0 and 3-0 to Aston Villa and Man city, respectively. Before that, beating Wigan two weeks ago, 1-0.

It is obvious that some rebuilding should be done in the winter transfer window, and recent reports have linked the Gunners with big names, most notably Serie A's Chiellini, Mexes, and Pato.

Although Chiellini has been linked to several English clubs, it is doubtful he'll move due to signing a new contract with Juventus; the latter two are also a doubt because Roma and Milan will have to be offered huge amounts to even consider selling their star players, which deeply goes against Wenger's transfer policies. Even buying any player wouldn't be certain as he recently stated that buying isn't always the answer.

Arsenal have their third match against a "big four" team this weekend against Liverpool, who have also won their two "big four" matches. Arsenal's overrated Adebayor recently stated that Arsenal should forget about their Manchester and Chelsea wins when they play against Liverpool, and shouldn't take victory for granted.
