Fans around north London are in mourning this afternoon after Arsenal were relegated from the transfer window for their failure to sign a single outfield player during the allotted time period.
Reports have emerged of children and adults alike taking to social media calling for the head of manager Arsene Wenger after the club’s below par performance, which has left the club with an uncertain future.
“It’s devastating, it really is,” said Gary Moore of Hackney. “But really, it’s been a long time coming. We’ve had some flash in the pan performances in the transfer window in recent years but for the most part we’ve drifted near the bottom.”
“We knew eventually that Wenger’s stubbornness would cost us, but it still stings like heck,” added Moore.
The relegation means that the club will now have to go a whole four months of the football season without signing a player, though some fans feel playing matches may be a welcome distraction from the transfer window.
“It’s exactly what the club need,” said Jeoff Callaghan, Moore’s house mate. “It’s been a rubbish transfer window but the players can have a bit of fun on the pitch before the real thing starts all over again in January.”
At press time, manager Arsene Wenger had told reporters that he was “chomping at the bit” to get back out on the market and redeem himself in January.
