Podolski pushing even harder for Arsenal exit

Lukas Podolski is using his time with the German national team to get some proper playing time on the pitch, and also to voice his displeasure at being left on the sidelines with Arsenal. Now that he has been backed up by the Germany manager Joachim Low, Podolski has made it even clearer that he needs to get away from the Emirates.

“I’ve spent the last four months making brief appearances,” he was quoted as aying in the Standard. “I’ve had to wrap myself up warm in my winter coat with my hat and scarf on to watch the others playing.

“I would rather show Arsenal what I am capable if, but this chance to show what I can do is not being given to me.

“I want to play football for many years to come so am I meant just to say everything’s fine and sit my contract out?”

When asked if he may consider a return toGerman, he concluded: “Anything is possible nowadays,”

“You can’t rule anything out.”

Well you can´t get clearer than that, but can anyone see Wenger letting him leave in January?

    A big team can only keep an average player happy by letting him go!
    And don’t start on him having 100+ caps for his nation.
    Reus was injured but Prince Poldi couldn’t even get 100 minutes under his belt in the whole world cup.
    If Arsenal is indeed a big team as u all claim,then letting go of these average players is no big deal.
    After all which big team that we are competing with would be interested in him?Think!

      The flaw to your logic is that national teams rarely play players who don’t have regular play time in their own club teams, and Germany has one of the best national teams in the world so obviously they can pick and choose players according to talent AND form.

      Podolski is a good player, definitely not average but Wenger doesn’t know how to use him and doesn’t rotate players.
      As a result players like Podolski, Campbel, Rosicky and I am sure some of the youth academy players are joining the ranks of the disgruntled 1st team players who have seen enough of Wenger’s ineptness in every aspect of coaching the team.
      Wenger has lost the dressing room, his insane philosophy of running players into the ground and ignoring decent players because of his bias for certain under performing players is simply unforgivable.
      Now we see Wenger lashing out at players, Jesus he even had a go at Sanchez after the last game, man is a fool, he needs to go.
      What are possible transfer targets going to think about the current state of affairs? Can’t see too many of them wanting to come for fear of Wenger getting huffy with them and losing a year from their short career sitting on the bench.

      Maybe, just maybe – there is a corelation between Podolskis lack of playtime for Arsenal and Germany, as stated by Löw in the article this one is based on? It is true that Podolski is not the best left winger / striker for Germany at the moment, but that is only because of wenger. A disgrace to such a talented player.

      f*ck that – Draxler is not what we need now that we have Sanchez. We need a goalscorer, we need podolski. (Or Costa, but Wenger didnt really give a f*ck about him either this summer. Thanks a lot, mad prof!)

    When Ozil gets back from injury, he needs to get right down to it and focus and show what he can do and prove everyone wrong, it’s make or break for him now. Wenger must stop playing him out on the left, he’s just completely idle out there.

      If we are to belive the midia Ozil has to pull his sox up and work hard if he wants to attract big clubs to buy him.

    Why is there another article on podolski, we know and he knows he is not going to get much game time, do not know if he is going to be even be on the bench soon, we have already discuss his pros and cons. so i guess we will be saying good bye soon

    I blame Wenger for everything now; bad defense, not getting top striker, DM, fourth place every year, poor tactics, not winning trophies, conflict in Syria, Ukraine, immigration, deficit, al Qaeda and ISIS, climate change, etc.

    Its easier that way

    He has every right to be angry. Against Swansea, when we needed a goal badly, why didn’t we bring him on? What has Sanogo actually done for Arsenal Football Club to merit a start ahead of Prince Poldi? Cazorla has been on and off all season, surely Podolski could have managed one start in his place? SMH.

      Podolsky is good but when it comes to selection of players, I don’t knw y Wenger prefers these useless ‘good 4 nothing’ French players… They’re not strong, not consistent, not world class, mostly cost us crucial games and yet gets playing time……. Why on earth is wenger still holding on to Diaby,Sanogo…..

    And Rosicky, what was the point of his contract extension anyway if he wouldn’t play? If we’re leading comfortably, I see no reason why we can’t give fringe players like Poldi, Rosicky and Campbell some game time to keep everyone happy.

      Too many players in the same position and not enough in other, un balanced, Rosicky shoul know and exept at his age to be in a big club he will be a bench wormer and a bit player, he should be grateful.

    WTF is wrong with Poldi? He’s great when he comes on as a substitute and then u hope he can do much better when he starts buh dude starts and plays like his non existent. Anyways everyone deserves a chance once in a while.

    The problem with him is not his ability but his work rate. He says he wants game time but when he’s given the opportunity he doesn’t even break a sweat, i expect all our players to put in the same shift as sanchez, win or lose. Why’s one player (sanchez) the only person working his behind off every game while the others barely get into 2nd or 3rd gear?

    Less selfies and more work rate poldi
