The Gunners boss has revealed that he expected the north London club to be busier in the transfer window, with the registration period nearing its close. Nowadays, I has concentrated my whole energy upon the FIFA 16 and buy fifa 16 coins.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has admitted his disappointment at the lack of business done in the January transfer window.
The Gunners did complete some business, managing to prize Mohamed Elneny away from Basel, with the Egyptian making his debut in the FA Cup win over Burnley on Saturday.
But Wenger, who predicted the transfer window could be the busiest yet, admitted to a news conference that Arsenal's window had been much quieter than he expected.
"The whole period was much quieter than I anticipated, the fact I'm here now shows we'll still be quiet," Wenger said, ahead of the Premier League match with Southampton on Tuesday.
"If possible, I would have been open to one more but there is a rarity of players."
Arsenal continued their impressive unbeaten record in the FA Cup on Saturday, defeating Burnley in their bid to win the tournament for the third successive time.
And the one player that Wenger did successfully sign for the first-team squad impressed the Gunners boss on his debut, though the Frenchman conceded their would be a bedding in process. Manage your team and buy fifa coins to upgrade your strength.
"His first performance was very good," Wenger said of Elneny.
"He made plenty of passes but needs to adapt."

Let's face it, your starting lineup might be great right now, but in ten years' time your players are going to be shuffling around slower than an OAP zombie. To stop your team becoming a squad of pyjama-wearing grandads, you need to invest in youth scouting.
The basics of it work like this: you hire a scout and tell him to go to a certain country and look for youth players. Nowadays, I has concentrated my whole energy upon the FIFA 16 and buy fifa 16 coins. Every month he'll report back and show you any players he's found, and - if you think they're promising enough - you sign them to your academy. When you reckon they're ready, you can then promote them to your first team.
This seems pretty complex on first glance: which is the right scout to pick, and where should you send him? What sort of player should he look for? And how do you spot the best players on his reports? Well, just follow these quick tips and you'll be well on your way to proving that you can win things with kids.
When it comes to choosing a scout, it can be confusing. Each scout has a rating out of five in both 'experience' and 'judgment' - but what do these mean? Well, a scout with good experience will have more players on every report, and he's also more likely to find the player type you're looking for - if you're searching for the next wonderkid goalkeeper, he's less likely to bring back a bunch of strikers. Secondly, judgment refers to the quality of players the scout will find, with higher judgment obviously producing higher quality players. While you can find top players with bad scouts, it's much better to buy a top-notch scout if you can afford it.
Once you've picked your scout, you need to decide where to send them. Not every country is rated equally, and some give you a better chance of finding great players than others. Brazil and Argentina have the highest chance of finding what the game calls 'platinum' players - youth players with the highest OVRs and potentials - so scout there first. It is actually entirely possible to find the next Messi in Australia (one of the lowest rated places to scout - sorry Aussies), but it's much harder than in Brazil or Argentina.
If you like, you can also tell your scout to look for a specific type of player, such as a pacey winger or a creative playmaker. Somewhat frustratingly, you can't actually search for a certain position (apart from goalkeepers), and different types will bring back players in several positions. So Defensive Minded will find you centre backs, full backs and defensive midfielders. Playmaker will find you central midfielders but sometimes wingers. Use a bit of lateral thinking and it soon becomes clear what each player type is likely to get you. Note also that by some weird quirk, searching for the Attacker player type won't actually find you any strikers - instead, try Physically Strong or Technically Gifted.
When players first appear on your scouting reports, they will have two stat ranges - Overall and Potential. The former refers to how good the player currently is, while the latter predicts how good he will eventually become. When deciding whether to sign a player to your youth academy, you should focus on potential - a player with a low overall (OVR) but a high potential will rapidly improve thanks to his strong future ability, whereas a player in the opposite situation will likely start out strong but quickly stall.
As a final note, other teams can also 'scout' their own players. When a player retires, he is replaced by what basically amounts to a younger version of himself, playing in the same division as the retired player (but not necessarily for the same side). Manage your team and buy fifa coins to upgrade your strength. These players are known as regens. Keep an eye out for high quality players who are on the verge of retiring - next season, search for young players of the same nationality and playing in the same division and you could find yourself a cheap future superstar.

There are reports of unrest in the Bayern Munich squad with magazine Kicker quoting a player saying the atmosphere is "not good" ahead of Pep Guardiola's departure. Buy fifa coins and experience new charater you want.
Bayern are in rude health in the Bundesliga table with the Bavarian giants eight points clear and on course to win a record fourth straight league title.
But off the pitch, there are rumours Guardiola is losing the dressing room having announced last month that he will leave at the end of the season after three years in Munich.
The Spaniard has said he wants to coach in England next season, but wants to sign off with the treble of Champions League, Bundesliga and German Cup titles.
But Guardiola, 45, has come under pressure after centre-back Jerome Boateng last Friday became the 14th Bayern player to pick up an injury this season.
Long-term team doctor Hans-Wilhelm Mueller-Wohlfahrt abruptly ceased working with the team last season after an apparent fall-out with Guardiola.
The renowned doctor resigned after Bayern's medical staff was blamed for the 3-1 loss to Porto in the last 16 of the Champions League before the club was later knocked out in the semi-finals.
The current medical staff have struggled to get the likes of stars Mario Goetze, Medhi Benatia and Franck Ribery fit this season.
In December, France winger Franck Ribery picked up a fresh leg injury, just weeks after coming back from a persistent ankle problem.
Ribery should be back next week, but Bayern has only said Boateng will be out for a "long time" with fears the star defender could miss the next three months.
He is Bayern's third defender currently sidelined along with Benatia and Rafinha, while Juan Bernat and Javi Martinez have just returned.
Germany star Thomas Mueller joked the squad has a 'disease of the boot' after last Friday's 2-1 win at Hamburg saw Boateng become the latest sidelined player.
Another possible reason for discontent emerged when Arjen Robben admitted to Dutch television last month that he was 'annoyed' by Guardiola's decision to leave.
He is unlikely to be the only Bayern star irritated by the Spaniard going public about his departure with only half the season gone.
"I'm annoyed about it. It's a real shame," Robben told Dutch television station NOS with Carlo Ancelotti set to take over as Bayern coach next season.
Bayern host strugglers Hoffenheim on Sunday in the league, then face Bayer Leverkusen, Bochum in the cup Augsburg away, then play mid-table Darmstadt at home. Buy fut16coin can upgrade your strength.
They play Juventus in Turin on February 23 in the last 16 of the Champions League with the return leg in Munich on March 16.

BARCELONA: Barcelona coach Luis Enrique is concerned that Wednesday's Copa del Rey match against Athletic Bilbao could wear down his team ahead of its critical Spanish league game against Atletico Madrid. Buy fifa coins and experience new charater you want.
Barcelona holds a 2-1 advantage when it hosts Bilbao in the second leg of the quarterfinals. On the same night in the capital, Atletico will also seek its spot in the semifinals when it plays Celta Vigo after their scoreless first leg.

"The only game key to reaching the Copa semifinals is tomorrow's, who knows what will happen with the rest," Luis Enrique said. "I am worried about the physical wear and tear taking into account that Atletico is coming on Saturday. My team is fine, but these are both very intense matches."
Neymar returned to team training on Tuesday after muscle pain forced him to miss Barcelona's last game. But fever may sideline midfielders Andres Iniesta, Sergio Busquets and Arda Turan after all sat out of training.

First 10 year of Arsene career were successful winning three premier league, 4 FA cups, and 4 community shields. During the time they won two doubles.
And the famous invincible side and one champions league final.
Now it was all going well for Arsene. Than came 9 years of trophy drought.
1. Departure of significant figures from the team. Nowadays, I has concentrated my whole energy upon the FIFA 16 and buy fifa 16 coins.After year 2006 most of the players were young and after having a good stint departed from the club ( club earned a lot from those transfers)
2. Not enough budget for the big money transfers.
Above reasons are because arsenal moved to a world class stadium with state of art facilities. The Emirates stadium. The pitch is one of the finest in Europe, the capacity is good and overall it was a very expensive built.
Arsenal took a loan of about $260 million. and the stadium costed around $400 million. Many of the sponsors like Emirates, Nike and other provided some funds.
but to overcome a amount that huge is a very difficult task. Mr. Wenger took the responsibility and manged the club really well in that period. He bought young players and sold the ones (players who wanted to leave) at a good price. Players like Nasri, fabregas, persie, clichy are few of them.
Keeping the standards with all those debts and players leaving is a mammoth ask.
Arsenal might not have won silverware in all those times, but there game never dropped massively. They finished in top four in all that years and also challenged the premier league in 2007-08 season. And reached the league cup finals 2007 and 2011.
As in 2013 it is said that arsenal have paid all the dept and are in profit of around 11.1 million pounds despite spending around 90 million pounds in transfer in two seasons.
During last two seasons arsenal have now won back to back FA cups and a community shield.(Another one is coming soon :P)
So overall Arsene have done quite brilliantly as an manger at the club
(though the silverware drought). Keeping the game which arsenal play intact for so many years I think he deserves a standing ovation.
Recently he said that he is building a team for the future. Bringing in Ozil, alexis, walcott,Szczesny,Gabriel, Gibbs, chabers,Jenkinson,bellerin,coquelin,Ramsay. So you can see most of the first team players are quite young and are great players.
Wenger have build a nice young core with experience around. The club is doing really well financially and hope next season the team challenges for the title.
If Wenger wins premier league next season, he will definitely depart on a high leaving a strong team with good financial condition for the next manger coming.
It will be his 20th season in charge in the premier league. Manage your team and buy fifa coins to upgrade your strength.So for me he is a club legend and the successful manager at arsenal.

Forget trophies won at big clubs, forget PR, specious stats and let's go back to first principles.
Imagine you have the brief to pick a first world team at random and you must ask one of these three amigos to occupy the managers office, regardless of which team you end up picking.Buy cheap fifa coins and enjoy game.
So out of the hat you might drop a top team from La Liga, The Premiership, Serie A, The Bundesliga, France, Belgium, The Netherlands.
Equally though you might pull out Elgin in League Two in Scotland, Rochdale, Malmo, Pescara, Carolina Railhawks or Union Espanola in Chile.
With such a broad spectrum of potential sides to manage I'd want Ancelotti precisely because of his ability to find the exact temperature of the challenges put in front of him and apply an appropriate and effective solution.
Firstly Ancelotti is a manager with sublime social skills. He is as likely to inspire a part-time playing journeyman as an international superstar. He is renowned as a manager that finds the correct level with players and people wherever he goes and that is both invaluable and essential if your canvas is the vast expanse 0f footballing ocean between the likes of Barcelona and Welsh side TNS .
Secondly, unlike Guardiola, Ancelotti will fit his tactics and playing style to the players at his disposal rather than the dictates of 'his philosophy'. He doesn't need a conveyor belt of identikit academy graduates, passing short, pressing high and dominating space without the ball. He can cut his coat according to his cloth.
Thirdly, unlike Mourinho, Ancelotti could flourish in the context of two 50p a mile scouts and a budget for part time wages and Bosman signings. As a pragmatic diplomat, Ancelloti wouldn't rely on chequebook diplomacy and feuds and ultimatums to force his way. And, unlike either rival, what he'd leave behind at a lowly club would be significantly better than the situation he'd inherited. Guardiola wouldn't get the time he'd require and Mourinho always leaves an unexploded bomb waiting in the hotseat for the next incumbent.
If we're arguing who'd have the best 10-year plan at a major club, who'd win a league title in three seasons at an ambitious, moneybags side then you could make a case for Guardiola in the first instance and then Mourinho in the second. No question.To get more fut16coin and improve your skill you can click here.If the test is a pure test of people skills, teambuilding and'football managership' or whatever you'd call it, then I am with Ancelotti. Every time.

League leaders Bayern Munich are looking for a winning start to the year at Hamburg SV tonight as the Bundesliga resumes after the winter break and coach Pep Guardiola starts his farewell tour that he hopes will end with more silverware.Nowadays, I has concentrated my whole energy upon the FIFA 16 and buy fifa 16 coins.
The Bavarians, eight points clear at the top of the table, are eyeing a record fourth consecutive German league title - a third under Spaniard Guardiola, who will leave at the end of the season after three years to join a Premier League club.
"We all want to go towards the same direction together and then hopefully celebrate titles together," Bayern striker Robert Lewandowski told reporters this week.
Bayern are the overwhelming favourites for the league title once more this season but it is still unclear what effect Guardiola's decision, announced just before the winter break, may have on their performances.
"Eight points are not a lot because if we lose then it is just five points (to second-placed Borussia Dortmund) and you can only make a few more such mistakes," Lewandowski said.
"That is why we have to be in top form from the very first game until the end of the season. We have to remain alert."
Bayern are on 46 points with Dortmund, who are travelling to fourth-placed Borussia Moenchengladbach tomorrow, on 38.
The Bavarians lost their only warm-up game after a winter training camp in Qatar, a 2-1 defeat to second division club Karlsruhe last week, with some critics arguing the team had not worked hard enough under the Spaniard during the break.
The players are quick to reject that defeat as part of preparations for the new year with the team in the running for a treble of titles, including the Champions League and the German Cup.
"Obviously warm-up games are different from competitions," said defender Holger Badstuber. "We know we can play better than that and we will finetune everything. On Friday we will be ready."
Bayern have played a near-flawless first half to the season, having won 15 of their 17 league matches and having lost just once.
Hamburg, who lost three of their warm-up matches, could be without top striker Pierre-Michel Lasogga and central defender Johan Djourou, with both racing against time to overcome injuries.
But Badstuber warned that even with these absences, 10th placed Hamburg were no longer the confidence-lacking team that needed a relegation playoff to stay up last season.
"We know it is not the Hamburg of the past few years. Manage your team and buy fifa coins to upgrade your strength.They have made up a lot of lost ground and are brimming with confidence," Badstuber said.
"It's never easy in Hamburg with that atmosphere in their stadium. We know what to expect."
Surprise package Hertha Berlin, in third place on 32 points, six off Dortmund, entertain Augsburg.

Papy Djilobodji has only played just one minute for Chelsea since joining the club in the summer from French club Nantes. Nowadays, I has concentrated my whole energy upon the FIFA 16 and buy fifa 16 coins.
The 27-year-old defender doesn
t seem to be in the first team plans of manager Guus Hiddink, and he is looking for a move elsewhere to get regular games.
According to reports from The Guardian, Djilobodji could join Werder Bremen on loan during the January transfer window.
The Werder Bremen chief executive, Thomas Eichin, told Bild: "We are in negotiations."
He hasn't played a single Premier League game, and his solitary appearance to date came in the Capital One Cup against Walsall in September.
Chelsea are looking to sign a striker in the January transfer window, and are monitoring Watford striker Odion Ighalo, according to reports from the Mirror.
The 26-year-old has scored 13 goals this season for the Hornets and has attracted interests from several Premier League clubs including Arsenal and Manchester United.
Ighalo has signed a new five year deal in September, but he admitted that he could yet be open to a move to a top club. Manage your team and buy fifa coins to upgrade your strength.
He claimed earlier this month that a potential transfer to Manchester United would be "a dream" for him.

A record 29 managers in the top four English divisions were sacked in the first half of this season, according to the League Managers Association's Mid-Season Manager Statistics report.Buy fifa 16 coins and build the best team to challenge players around the world.
Leicester's Nigel Pearson, Liverpool's Brendan Rodgers, Sunderland's Dick Advocaat, Aston Villa's Tim Sherwood, Swansea's Garry Monk and former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho were replaced in the Premier League, while 10 Championship managers were fired.
The statistics show that 29 managers were sacked between June 1 and December 31 last year, two more than the previous high of 27 by the same point in the 2014-15 campaign.
"We must continue to shine a light on this issue," said League Managers Association (LMA) chief executive Richard Bevan.
"With the hire-and-fire culture engrained within football, it's so difficult to survive for any meaningful length of time in order to learn your trade, learn from mistakes and experiences.
"Managers must cope with instant judgements and, often, success and failure are rarely that far apart."
The report was released as Scunthorpe boss Mark Robins and Orient's Ian Hendon became the latest casualties, with the figures suggesting the all-time high of 53 dismissals in 2001-02 could be exceeded by the end of the current campaign.
For those who have departed - 29 were relieved of their duties and a further five left of their own volition - the average reign amounted to just 1.58 years.
Of the four leagues, the Championship has the most dismissals with 10 managers parting with their respective clubs during the same period compared with six in League One and seven in League Two.
The figures contain depressing news for new bosses in particular with eight of the 29 dismissed having been in their first post.Click here to get more fifa 16 coins and improve your team.
