#59081 mwichmann : Hmmm, some results there that must be frustrating - Wolves 5-3 (when do Wolves score five???) and you had a difficult January with all those draws.

I know you're not at the end of the season yet, but it's never too early to take a look... the question is, with a big gap to Arsenal's level of performance this year, how will that gap be closed? Is the talent there but needs to grow a bit, or is there something particular that's missing in the squad?

Yes you're right some difficult spells this year. I hope I can win most of my remaining matches to keep the job. Nothing has been mentioned yet, but you never know with Abramovich. I have got to maybe look at better formations and tactics to utilise the strength I have in midfield : Hazard, Marin, Mata, Oscar, Asamoah. I am happy with the players brought in and am considering getting Fellaini & Kagawa on free transfers at end of season as well. Yeah so after the transfers this summer will look at some improved formations and tactics. Any suggestions are welcome ...

Very good story, especially in the first season winning both cups, and so close to the Europa. Not doing to bad in the league. Keep it up.

Thanks, yes i think this season was a bit disappointing though just with the League Cup, I need to win nearly all my remaining fixtures and try and get back into Champions League and hope I don't get sacked at end of season because 4th is still not enough sometimes.

So with Maroune Fellaini adding strength in midfield and Shinji Kagawa's touch of class going forward we have already improved the squad for the coming season spending just over five million. With Roman Abramovich's cash injection we now have 70 million Euros left to spend as a transfer budget and an extra 300kpw in wages to offer. We may be looking at another big signing this summer, very happy with the squad but seeing that the funds are available and will most likely not be carried forward to next season I am looking at my options. I am looking to make my mark in the Champions League this year and try and win the Premier League. Any suggestions as to what to do with the remaining transfer money are welcome, I am thinking of buying another striker to help rotate with Torres & Lukaku, as I think I have enough cover at the back and have a very solid midfield. Next update with Summer friendlies & more transfers up soon...
maybe even just leave that money for future transfers. just because u have $70m doesnt mean u have to spend it straight away .
having too many players on high wages can slowly eat away at your overall balance and send your club into debt :P .

well done in the past season eventually climbing to third

Thanks, I knew I had some easy fixtures coming up apart from Arsenal & Manchester United and I managed to knick a draw at United & full points in rest even against Liverpool. I think if I don't spend the money it will not be available for future transfers though! I am looking to complete another signing or two and maybe play about with the tactics a bit. So far have had a very successful preseason in the friendlies, will post an update later with more Transfer News & Friendly results, and even some info on the squad overall !
