Arsenal set to shine in Newcastle by Sam P
Striker or bust for Arsenal!! by JH
One of very few things Arsenal fans can agree on is that we need a world class striker, following the days of Wright, Henry, Van Persie, Giroud simply just doesn’t cut it. I believe a world class striker would have scored at least two vs Liverpool. Giroud managed none….
So now we can finally stop being bombarded by Arsenal transfer rumours linking us with a summer swoop for Karim Benzema. To be honest the stories were getting ridiculous, with so-called experts claiming the deal was done and that private jets had been booked to bring him from Madrid and other such malarkey.
It does not really matter who I or other Arsenal fans think should be in Arsenal’s starting XI to face Liverpool tonight, as Arsene Wenger will stick to his favourite line up for as long as possible until injuries or midweek games force his hand. There were no new injuries and no returning stars to affect his decisions today.
Liverpool’s Adam Lallana is getting ready to visit the Emirates on Monday night, and he thinks that Arsenal are going to have a hard time getting a result. The Gunners destroyed his team 4-1 in this fixture last season, but he is feeling in a cocky mood this time around.
What AFC will ACTUALLY do in the transfer market by Gooner100
I’ve read the comments and suffered the highs and lows. We’re buying Benzema, we’re buying Cavani, we’re buying Schneiderlin blah blah blah. It starts out as exciting, becomes annoying – and finishes as depressing.
Arsenal’s longest serving player, and also one of our top earners, Theo Walcott, looks set to be a peripheral bench-warmer this season unless Olivier Giroud suffers a long term injury. The England international has made it clear that he wants to be the main centre-forward, so it looks like Arsene Wenger has decided to punish him by not playing him on the wing alongside Giroud either.
Us Arsenal fans are continually deluding ourselves that Wenger will bring in a new superstriker to fire us to the Premiership title this season, even though Le Prof keeps making it abundantly clear that he has no intention of bringing in competition for Olivier Giroud and Theo Walcott.
