Danny Welbeck has only been an Arsenal player for a month and some of that was taken up by his time with the England national team during the last international break. And most Arsenal fans and pundits have been reasonably impressed with his contribution to the cause so far.
Welbeck may have missed a few chances but he has scored a good goal and provided an assist, which for a player not used to his team mates and with not many proper training sessions to get used to them, that is not bad. But the former Man United forward is harder on himself and was a bit disappointed with his latest showing, against Tottenham in the north London derby, as he explained to Arsenal Player.
Danny said, “In the first half I was more of a threat, in the second I didn’t really feel like I did as much as I should have. I am a bit disappointed with that and I will work on the training pitch with the rest of the players and hopefully be involved much more throughout our games.
“It’s been very welcoming from the fans, the whole club and everyone involved with Arsenal and it is a great honour for me to be here. I am just looking forward to improving here and to making sure I give the best I can for Arsenal.”
I for one think he has got the right attitude and abilities to really thrive at the Emirates and we have heard a lot of praise coming from the likes of Mesut Ozil and Santi Cazorla for what he brings to the team. If he really is as determined to improve and succeed as he makes out, I reckon that Wenger will have found us a real gem. Do you agree?
