There has been a lot of debate among Arsenal fans and talk in the football media about the striker situation at Arsenal. But for some reason the same can not be said of our big Premier League rivals Chelsea, despite them looking seriously short on fire power.
THE CASE FOR OUR STRIKERS by GOONER100
Dear Gooners, I write this in response to the clamour from many Arsenal fans on this site, half of whom believe we have no chance of improving our league position, unless we secure a ‘world class’ centre forward.
It seems as though Arsenal fans and everyone connected with the Gunners are not the only people who want to see us lift the Premier League trophy. I am not talking about the football media either, as there are not too many of them out there rooting for Arsenal and plenty, like the doughnut Adrian Durham, who make no secret of their dislike of all things Arsenal.
Arsenal’s centre forward issue. Part 1: The mythical “25 goal” man ..by JS
The last time I wrote a piece about Arsenal getting a boost from some of our rivals´players being out through injury, someone took a real exception to it and claimed I should not revel in any player´s misfortune. I can understand that but I want Arsenal to win and anything that helps that is good news in my book.
Why Arsenal Cannot Take Monaco Lightly! by AT
The majority of Arsenal fans will be very happy with the Champions League round of 16 draw after drawing AS Monaco and will also be quietly confident of the Gunners beating the Ligue 1 outfit to progress into the Quarter-Finals of Europe’s elite competition. While it is comparatively a much better draw considering we could have drawn Real Madrid or Bayern Munich like the past two seasons, the Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud has reminded us that Monaco will not be pushovers.
It is not just Arsenal Football Club and it’s fans that are having a hard time of it this season. It does not make it any easier to see Chelsea looking set to win the Premier League at a canter, of course, but the Gunners can take some small comfort that the likes of the spuds, Liverpool, Man City and Man United have all so far failed to take advantage of our own problems.
I was among the Arsenal fans who were not entirely convinced by one of the top transfer targets of the summer, Porto and Colombian international centre forward Jackson Martinez. It was looking like Arsene Wenger was going to finally firm up his interest, but that is now at serious risk after the Metro reported that Liverpool are planning a £30 million transfer bid in January to beat Arsenal to the punch, although that figure shouldnt be beyond our means nowadays.
