I can just hear it now, Arsenal do not need to sign nay more strikers, because Gervinho has decided to stay. While he’s at it, Arsene Wenger could also say that getting Andre Santos and Nicklas Bendtner back from their loan spells will be like signing two new players. Oh, and Abou Diaby might be fir sometime around Christmas, so we will manage until then and have a good end to the season, narrowly beating Tottenham into fourth place.
It’s a Win-Win scenario for Arsenal by AH
Although some people may slate the club for letting the deadwood players go for stupidly small sums of money, a lot of people will correctly recognise that although it hasn’t added much to our transfer chest, it does free up a lot of space elsewhere.
One of the big problems for Arsenal in recent years has been the number of players drawing nice, big salaries from the club and offering nothing on the pitch. Arsene Wenger and the club officials obviously don’t plan for this to happen, but it is a serious drain on the expenses, while at the same time driving your average Gooner up the wall and through the roof.

The last few weeks and months have been full of transfer rumours about players that Arsenal are apparently going to be signing which got me thinking about who is going to leave the club to make room for new players.
It has been a fair few years since Arsenal had a significant number of Brazilian players in the squad, the last time we had a decent contingent of Brazilians was in the days of Gilberto Silva and Edu. When those two players were in the team, we were extremely successful but that wasn’t because of them – it was to do with the team as a whole.
However much fans groups try, or Wenger calls for respect, there will be no doubting the feeling of many Arsenal fans about Robin van Persie when Manchester United come to the Emirates on Sunday. The Arsemal players, however, need to try to ignore what is going on in the stands and not get caught up in the emotion.
