Troy Deeney Gives Honest Opinion On Arsenal, Their Fans React Angrily
Troy Deeney's got Arsenal fans talking... again.
Remember when he said Arsenal lack 'cojones'?!
Well, Deeney has given his honest opinion on Arsenal's current situation and fans are fuming.
He's now claimed the Gunners are way off the pace in the Premier League whilst saying they're six, seven or eight transfer windows behind the big boys.
"Everyone knows me and Arsenal don't get on too well," he said.
"Arsenal are probably about 6, 7 or 8 transfer windows behind the big boys"- BBC 5 Live Sport (@5liveSport) January 4, 2019
While there's been an improvement at Arsenal under Unai Emery, @T_Deeney says they're still a way behind the top sides.

Deeney added: "But I think there has a steeliness that has been brought in and there are goals throughout the team.
"They have different styles of play now and can play with the two boys up front that are always going to score goals and give you something to build on.
"But football works in six-month periods between transfer windows and they are going to have to go again.
"Look at how transfer windows they are behind the big boys. They are probably six, seven or eight behind the big boys. That is just being realistic.
"I know people are saying it is a massive improvement but that's only on what they had last year.
"But they are still behind the likes of Man City and United, not just in spending but in the quality they have brought in."
Needless to say, Arsenal supporters didn't take too kindly to his comments. Here's some reaction from Twitter:
Absolute nonsense. Where did all this crap talk come from. They should be competing within 12 months or they aren't spending wisely. Do fans deserve a 3 year wait? And that presumes nothing else changes in that time?- The Botwatcher2000 (@AndyBowers11) January 4, 2019

Arsenal have already been linked with players this window in the shape of Denis Suarez, among others, as they monitor new talent ahead of the second half of the season.
