Arsenal fans all over the world woke up to hear the sad news of their mecurial and talismanic striker signing for Barca. In hundreds many a Arsenal fans are waiting to see how the club respond to this . Already many fans have indicated that if the club countinues what they have termed mediocrity in the transfer market as was the case last season, they were going to decamp to Barca.
This at a time Man U, Chelsea and liverpool are brazing up for the title challenge come next season.
Some even say that as it is, Arsenal might finish much lower that they did last season come the end of ne3xt season.
Like one fan said on the Naija Football Fans Forum today, the club lacks a sense of "self Preservation".
Truely it looks like a team about to self destruct. After the controversial exit of Dein, one expected that Arsenal would work hard to keep what is left of it's family. With Thiery leaving on the grounds of uncertainty of Wenger's future, it is only a matter of time before we wake up to the news that Wenger is gone. That it will become a vircious circle with different players asking out as soon as possible. Atleast we know players like Cesc Fabregas, Denilson etc have said they will play for Arsenal as far as Wenger remains.
I hope it dosn't get to that stage. If Arsenal must retain it's teeming fan base accross the globe, now is the time to take decisive action to convince fans of it's willingness to compete both in the premiership and in Europe.
