Hold up you Gunners… We don’t need a striker! Marco Reus is who we require… by CE
First off, I would like to congratulate the Arsenal team and coach for a sensational 2014/2015 season. Though the games against Monaco and our loss at home to Swansea left me thinking whether we are back where we started.
I think the team right now is in tip-top condition to challenge Man City and Chelsea for the league title. Every position in our 4-5-1 formation is being contested by at least two good enough or world class players. But ‘alas’, challenging and actually winning are two different things.
Squad lineup Analysis for 2015/2016
Goalkeeper (Oooooospina)–sub: (Szczesny)– Wishful addition (Peter Cech)
Centre-backs (The big German Merty and King Kos) — subs: (Gabriel and Chambers)– No required addition
Right-back (The speedster Bellerin)– sub: (Debuchy)– No required addition
Left-back (Monreal)– sub: (Gibbs)– No required addition
Defensive Midfielder (The Gladiator Coquelin)– subs (Arteta and Flamini)– No required addition
Centre and attacking Midfielders (Cazorla and Ozil)– subs (Ramsey, Wilshere and maybe Zelalem??)– No required addition
Wingers (Sanchez and Chamberlain)– subs (Gbnary)– Required addition (MARCO REUS!!!!)
Striker (Walcott) — subs (Giroud, Welbeck and Chuba Akpom)– No required addition
We really don’t need a new striker. If the boss does decide to get one, it should be a big upgrade to our current available strikeforce. ‘He’ should be able to score 30+ goals in the 2015/2016 season to give us that fear factor. That means a goal in every 120mins of play. I don’t see ‘washed-up Falcao’s brother Cavani’, Jackson Martinez or Lacazette doing that in their first season.
The only guy I see doing that is Benzema, but there is no way Real Madrid will let him go now Morata has ignored the comeback option. CR7 wouldn’t be deployed as the top Number Nine, he needs space to run with ball. Maybe if cry baby Benitez decides to get Aguero…
