To show how far they have fallen at the start of this thread there were a couple of posts suggesting they might be able to get Pep in to replace Wenger.

Can you imagine the ridicule you would get if you even suggested that as a possibility now

Why do you think they need to invest in their squad now?

Lack of spending isn't the only reason they've fallen so far. But it is a significant one.
It's not a lack of spending, it's a lack of spending in the right places. Look at the contracts they forked out for Ozil, Luiz, Willian, etc.

Ozil no but the other players yes.

Starts from the top kroenke doesn't care about Arsenal and maybe when he does it'll be to late.

Took Glazers a year of Moyes to realise how much they mucked up in terms of spending.

When was the last time Arsenal had a genuine leader on the pitch? Vieira?
Yeah I would say so but we still had players with work rate at least. That’s a big factor. You could see the players looking bereft of any effort against brentford.

I recall how contentious this thread was from the outset, it’s been vindicated since. And never really thought the situation would plummet to where Arsenal currently find themselves either.

There’s been so many “firsts” and new “records” for Arsenal in the last year or two. From being defeated by certain teams, to the number of losses at home, number of matches failed to score in etc and so on.

To now be sitting in 20th after 3 consecutive losses, not even scoring a goal, it really is an unbelievably dire situation. With no immediate signs of abating it either, with the lack of footballing knowledge and experience at key positions across the club.
