It is now about six weeks since Danny Welbeck has been an Arsenal player and the heavy fixture list, including two international breaks with England since he signed from Man United have meant that there has not been too much opportunity for Arsene Wenger to work with him too much on the training ground.
Add to that the fact that the 23-year old was very rarely used in the centre forward role before becoming a Gunner and you can understand why the manager has called for Arsenal fans to be patient with him, but Welbeck seems to have settled in to the club much quicker and easier than we could have hoped.
As an Arsenal.com report shows, Danny is really relishing the move to Arsenal and London and that, after the frustration of years being played out of position, if at all, by Ferguson and Moyes at Old Trafford, is perhaps the reason why the forward is already in the goals, with a very impressive seven from just nine games since he signed on the dotted line.
Welbeck said, ““It’s a bit different in London, because obviously I was born and bred in Manchester so that’s a place I know like the back of my hand.
“There were a lot of people in Manchester that I was connected to so it is a bit different coming to London and not knowing as many people. But I have got friends down here and my cousin has been working here for a few years now.
“It is a change for me but something I’m really looking forward to – starting a new adventure.”
It is a shame that Welbeck will not have the creative skills of Mesut Ozil to feed off for a while, because the two seemed to be developing a great understanding. However, Arsenal are hardly lacking on that side of things, with the likes of Wilshere, Cazorla, Alexis, Podolski, Ox and Rosicky. And with the pace of Theo Walcott soon to be added to the mix, I reckon that Welbeck will start to fill his boots on a regular basis. What do you think Gooners?
