Oh Arsene Wenger, I do love you. You’re like a well drilled machine.
I said a month ago that Wenger would renege on his transfer policy the further we head into December. I think I said by the 12th we’d get some U-turn love.
Well, I think it’s begun.
“We will see what is there. We have a whole December to go first”
‘I rate the player, but we are not on the case,”
“We just said that Olivier Giroud is a great striker, so behind that we cannot buy Karim Benzema!’
“If you look at his [Giroud’s] record, I believe he has special qualities that are difficult to find.
“After, of course you want him to be efficient as well. Where he has improved a lot is his link play with the other players, and that’s very important in our team.”
We’ll get to January, Jack might be back… then we’ll have an internal solution, meshed in with Callum, which means when Coq comes back we’ll have far too many DMs and we’ll need to sell.
Maybe we won’t buy. Maybe Wenger is right.
I think Wenger might look to add to the front line in January. I think he needs to add some more pace into the mix and he needs to add a bit of experience. I don’t think it’s an exaggeration to say that this current Arsenal forward line is the least exciting in Wenger’s 20 odd years. Sanchez is the only player who really excites. Outside that, we have good, but we don’t have ‘blow it out the park’ great like we’ve had previously.
Even an Adebayor like player would be nice (good Adebayor). Maybe someone a bit more mobile.
Is there a young Di Natale out there please? I mean, there was a Draxler around in the summer, he’d have been nice. Who else has pace and dreamy skillz?
I don’t know.
We have a game agasint Villa on Sunday. I want to call it tough, but this Villa team is one of the worst groups of bottlers in the league. Which makes them dangerous. It’s games like these that we need to get super focused for. As Theo said after the Champions League game, sometimes we don’t give enough respect to the opposition. We have to focus on every game if we want to succeed and achieve the ultimate goal this season.
Right, that’s me gone. Have a great Friday night!
