Frank McLintock has said Arsenal need to alter their transfer policy if they are to improve.
He said: "I think they’re a decent side, I don’t think they’re a great side by a long shot. You can’t lose about nine players in two years and keep coming up with a decent team it’s absolutely impossible.
"I don't want to be criticising Arsenal but I cannot understand this model that they use. They are so stuck in the trenches that they will not change it.
"You can see how it's only going to work against the club. And if they don't change it I think we will just start to become a lesser club each season."
McLintock added that he thought Arsenal were lucky to beat West Brom 2-0 at the Emirates after being awarded two dubious penalties. However, he said the win do wonders for the Gunners confidence.
