Bringing Gunners supporters to their feet with breath-taking pieces of skill and jaw-dropping goals, it’s players like these which have gained Arsene Wenger’s men worldwide recognition for playing some of the most fluid and attractive football on the continent.

Those who managed to thrive under no expectations.

All Gooners want is a little electricity, a smidgeon of unpredictability and a dash of je ne sais quoi. They want to see their valiant warriors fight for the cause, treating the crest like a badge of honour, as they lack horns with their opponent in a do-or-die battle for 90 minutes. Sick of having their hearts ripped from their chest by the latest ‘golden boy’ hopping to the next money-laden city – lately, it always seems to be Manchester – it’s fair to say that Arsenal supporters have been stung by certain fan favourites in recent history.

Will it be Welbeck or Sanogo?

When it was announced that Arsenal’s Olivier Giroud would be out until 2015 with an injury sustained against Everton; Gooners from all corners of the globe began either turning to God, tried positive thinking, wrote letters or began Googling the Good Samaritans helpline – all of these actions would’ve been born out of the realisation that Yaya Sanogo was going to being Arsenal’s main man in front of goal for the next four months.

Here are Arsenal's five biggest fails on transfer deadline day.

Arsenal reverted to type on transfer deadline day. After spending £42.5 million on Mesut Ozil a year ago and £35 million on Alexis Sanchez earlier this summer, manager Arsene Wenger put his chequebook away and stuck to his usual policy of financial stringency. That’s despite the fact his club clearly needed a new striker before tonight’s 11pm transfer cut-off point.

Arsene Wenger asking City to do him a defensive favour.

Having already been snubbed in his attempt to bring Radamel Falcao to the Emirates, Arsene Wenger is no closer to getting the striker he needs to bring in to cover the injury to Olivier Giroud. But he might well be a step closer to bringing in equally much needed defensive reinforcements, as he battles Everton for the loan of Man City’s Matija Nastasic.

Wenger says he WILL be active during transfer deadline day.

The last days of the transfer window are generally when Arsene Wenger springs to life, but this summer has seen the Gunners manager uncharacteristically active from the earliest days.

“I will be actively involved but on the last day of the window. I will of course be on alert until the last minute of the transfer deadline. You (the media) have decided that I have to buy strikers – I have not necessarily decided that!

Despite promising early signs, these players never quite cut the mustard for the Gunners.

With the 2014/15 transfer window so far seeming to be one of the more successful markets of Arsene Wenger’s Arsenal career in recent years, it’s easy to forget that the long-serving Frenchman has been regularly criticised over the years for buying players who turned out to be serious flops upon arrival at the club.
