Lots of the fan comments after yesterday’s win over West Brom mentioned Arsenal’s need for another striker. Gervinho and Giroud both tried hard and did some good things but could have done better. We had to rely on two penalties to win the game but we had enough of the game to have scored a few times from open play.
Giroud, to be fair to him, never got a decent chance, but he cannot seem to fashion his own chances. Gervinho did some great work but seems to freeze at the last minute. Arsene Wenger will probably buy another striker in the January transfer window, but we already have a player who scores goals as well as creating chances in Theo Walcott.
Time is running out fast if Arsenal are to keep Walcott at the club, but rumour has it that they are still unwilling to compromise enough to persuade the striker/winger to stay at the Emirates. Even with his lack of games, he is the top scorer at the club. We have already sold one top striker this year, can we really afford to do it again?
