Two words spring to mind – major reinforcement.

The January transfer window will undoubtedly be a very, very period for Arsenal FC. It’ll, in my opinion, determine whether we’ll take part in the prestigious Champions League next season or not.

To me, this Arsenal side is average. It’s a squad filled with players who are either world class or very mediocre.

Needless to say, it’s a very depressing time to be a Gooner. Our performances over the last few games have been disappointing and I’m utterly deluded that we don’t even put up a fight to challenge for the title. Losing is part of the game and I’m surprised we didn’t concede more than two today against a resilient Swansea side. They were by far the better team and deserved all the points.

We need top class additions to come in this winter and help us achieve our goals. If this doesn’t occur then a top four finish will more than likely beyond us this season.

It was good to see Thomas Vermaelen back to his best, and I hope he maintains his form. But we need to up our game drastically in the upcoming weeks.

If we are going to sign anyone this January then I hope we sign them from the Premier League. We need players who are experienced and determined to come in and strengthen our squad.

Let’s hope Le Prof we’ll act in a shrewd way after yet another poor result and display.
