Finton's Frolic: Jack Grealish Wouldn't Completely Solve Creative Issues, no Single Player Will
By Daniel Finton (Deputy Editor)
What up, Pimps?
Welcome one and welcome all to the Finton's Frolic right opinion zone. Today, I will be discussing how even signing the almighty Jack Grealish would not solve our creative conundrum. No sole creative player being brought in as a standalone signing in the department would.
There is no two ways around it, Arsenal is in a creative crisis at the moment. Despite having a relatively impressive front line and a solid defense for the first time in 900,000 years, now we completely lack what we've usually had in an abundance, creativity. Arsene Wenger practicaly fetishisized creative midfielders and was often times scrutinized for it. Now we see that there was some logic behind his controversial admiration. Yes, we lacked an anchor of a defensive midfielder for a long time, but hot damn, the Reds of London were far more creative then.
It seems like it was a century ago when the club possessed players such as Mesut Ozil, Aaron Ramsey, Tomas Rosicky, Santi Cazorla and Jack Wilshere simultaneously. Now, only the first on the list remains and he is a shadow of the man which the club first signed.
Now the Gooners are so starved for a creative outlet that many genuinely believe that bringing in one player will fix the issues completely. That is far from the case. In the recent episode of The Arsenal Cannon Podcast, the Senior Writer of this very site, Rob Worthington (Bertha) said that he'd like Emi Buendia and that one Hungarian guy whose name I'm too scared to try to spell. The guy who looks like a mixture between Clark Kent and Granit Xhaka. He's young and good at football.
While many may disagree with the personnel he stated he wants, I see where the man with the versatile name is coming from. The chief editor of this site, the bumptious, Brighton boy, Alfie Culshaw also agreed, we need more than one.
It makes me happy that some are aware that this issue is bigger than signing just one person. Even the ever-almighty, God sent, Grealish wouldn't be the antidote if he was brought in alone. Also, can I just say, I love Grealish and his superlative set of calves but y'all are taking it too far. This man lost 2-0 with his national team and somehow left the match with a chapped set of nads. Calm down. He's good, in fact, he's really good, but jeesh.
To be honest, this piece had little to do with Grealish, but I knew you freaks would click it if his name was there so... you've been clickbaited. Anyways, another shorty because I'm too busy with meet and greets and everything like that because we, at this massive site are celebrities so until next time, Toodloo...!
