Arsenal fans already have a great deal to thank these two former forwards for, with Thierry Henry and Dennis Bergkamp having played in almost 800 Arsenal games between them and scored well over 300 goals for the Gunners, picking up 17 winners medals in the process.
At the minute the tactics of Arsenal are pretty clear; get the ball to Mesut Ozil. Our creative genius is absolutely on fire this season and is proving all those pundits wrong that thought that he was not cut out for the Premier League.
When Arsenal bought Yaya Sanogo from the French side Auxerre three seasons ago, he was hailed as a hot young talent and was expected to flourish under Arsene Wenger’s tutelage. But after two years of doing not-very-much at Arsenal, he was sent out on loan at Dutch side Ajax, where it was hoped he would be learning from our past-master Dennis Bergkamp and manager Frank De Boer.
Arsenal now v Invincibles
This is completely off any topic we have discussed/debated on here recently, as I was just reminiscing about our incredible Invincible season. I was just looking at a few of our players from our current squad and comparing them with some of our Invincibles! To be honest we have had some great players between that squad and this one:
The French youngster Yaya Sanogo looked to be an incredible prospect when Arsenal signed him from Auxerre two summers ago. He was 20 years old, 6ft 4in tall, and had an excellent scoring record of 26 goals in 52 games for the French club.
