Although Thomas Vermaelen has declared that he is fully focused on getting Arsenal their first trophy in nearly a decade, the subject of his future will not go away.

Blame Wenger not Players by Ronny331
I think that Arsenal fans’ frustration must be shown towards Arsene Wenger and not the players. I’m getting tired of reading the criticism against our players. Every week it’s Giroud, now Wilshire and Arteta. I do admit during some games I get angry, upset, emotional and often vent at certain players. What we should do, however, is try and understand why they are playing poorly and what can be done to rectify it as a team/squad.
We all know that the priority for Arsenal in this January transfer window is a striker. Whether it be a player who can replace Theo Walcott while the England international recovers from his anterior cruciate ligament damage, or another player in the mould of Olivier Giroud.
