Reports emerged in April that Arsenal players had expressed concern over the club's direction. Access to facilities, injury treatment, and staff levels were all major concerns. These issues were also thought to have contributed to Joe Montemurro's departure from Juventus. Arsenal chief executive, however, explained that the club has taken steps in June to address the concerns. The club has made investments across all levels. Jonas Eidevall, a new head coach for the club, was appointed. Additionally, the club announced plans to build a new women's soccer building at their London Colney training facility. Arsenal finished nine percentage points behind WSL champions Chelsea. However, Manchester United was able to beat Arsenal to third place. Manchester United qualified for Champions League. Arsenal has plenty to be happy about in the coming campaign. Forward Mead was pleased with the results and midfielder Nobbs said they were confident that the improvements will put them in a position to compete against the likes of Chelsea or Manchester City in the WSL. This season, it is available on ok Sports. Nobbs stated, "I think that it's obviously positive for us." "We as players are always striving to be the best and the game's progress has seen a rise in professionalism. "So Arsenal are pushing it - it is what we need and it's going to make us the best. Arsenal is here to support us.
Mead concluded that you can become complacent which can lead to other teams taking advantage of your position. "Chelsea Man City, their quality has kinda gone to the next level thanks to the investment they made in the game. "It probably came out last season. We as Arsenal players have the quality. However, with the help we will get, hopefully, it can propel us to the next level and allow us to compete in the WSL/Champions League."
The sidewall is 38 and came from Rosengard in Sweden. She had helped Malmo-based Rosengard reach the quarter-finals at the Women's Champions League. After first coaching men's football, Eidevall joined Rosengard as an assistant and then became the head coach. In 2013, and 2014, Eidevall won back-to-back titles. Henrik Larsson was his assistant at Helsingborgs. He returned to Rosengard in the spring of 2018, leading them to the 2018 Swedish Cup. This was their first league title for four years. The sidewall is yet to meet Arsenal's squad in person after he was forced to quarantine in London. He has however been in contact via video call with his players. The club is also looking for a head coach. They have signed Simone Boye Sorensen from Bayern Munich as well as Nikita Perrys from Lyon as notable transfers. Mead stated, "We have had Zoom calls with him both as a whole team, but we haven’t had the conversations that most players would prefer at the moment." "We've been working hard on his principles, with the coaches that we have at this time, and it's exciting. "I think he is going to bring that competitiveness out in us all. Simone's and Nikita's entry into the squad just shows that he intends to do well here, and he wants the players to push ahead now. "So it's exciting times in the future and hopefully he'll see us in the coming days so we get going before we start the season." Nobbs commented, "We want the trophies. But I'm sure he can do that for us." We've already strengthened our squad, with a few more than last season. "What we've seen about him over Zoom shows that he has very high expectations and wants us to train hard, win back the ball and I believe that's what our team needs. "We have all the talent, but I think that if there is a drive from him for competition and training it will only help us win."
