Arsenal NEED More World Class Players – Former Invincible Speaks.

Its 10 years today since the invincible’s clinched the title further going 49 games unbeaten in what remains the best of memories for Arsenal and its fans.

Fast forward 10 years and the gunners are struggling to hang on to the fourth position in the league table after having top the table for over 20 games.

Former defender Sol Campbell believes Arsenal can become genuine challengers once again next season if they buy a couple more players who can “frighten” the opposition.

The Gunners were top but fell away badly since the turn of the year and are now in a battle for fourth sport as fixture congestion and injuries caught up with them.

Campbell who played a major role in Arsenal Invincibles championship side from 2003/2004 – believes with a few more high-calibre players for manager Arsene Wenger to pick from, there is no reason why his old team cannot last the distance in the Barclays Premier League title race once again.

Campbell said: “You have got to get to the stage where teams are frightened of you. You need options and they could do with a few more players who could frighten other teams with their playing ability.

“It will turn, but you need that cutting edge in your side. The board might have to put their head on the block and go for it and not be scared.

“If you spend money on a player and it does not work, you have to go again.

“Yes you can get players through scouting around the world, but ultimately these players are ready made and you have got to play top dollar to get them in.

“Arsenal need some more players who are ready-made and world-class. With everyone fit, I think they need another three players.

“Injuries have not helped Arsenal this season. Who knows, if Aaron Ramsey was fit, Theo Walcott did not get injured and Jack Wilshere played more regularly, you never know.

“They could be in a situation like Liverpool, who have not had many injuries.”
