Danny Welbeck all set to destroy Man United again?

The ex-Man United winger Danny Welbeck has hardly set Arsenal fans’ pulsing racing since his arrival from Old Trafford, but he certainly pulled out all the stops when the Gunners beat his old club in the FA Cup quarter-final, scoring the winner in the 61st minute.

According to the Mail, Welbeck has now recovered from his knee injury and is now ready to play on Sunday, and with Olivier Giroud looking tired and listless in recent games, and with Walcott’s failed experiment as his replacement, the stage looks set for another triumphal return for Welbeck.

Arsene Wenger started the Swansea game with his fifth unchanged starting XI in a row, but the team surely needs some fresh legs for this crucial match, which could seal our position in the Top Three if we win or at least draw this weekend. Welbeck certainly proved his ability to handle the big occasion in our FA Cup win, and Wenger was full of praise after the match. “It’s never simple to deal with that situation mentally because you feel a bit more under scrutiny,” Wenger said on the official Arsenal website. “You feel the eyes on your personal performance a bit more.

“That’s why I think it was a very interesting night for Danny, because he kept it simple, he focused on the game and he scored the winner for us. I’m convinced that he has shown in that occasion that he’s mentally very strong.

“I’ve seen many players fail against their old club. He’s one of the few you’ve seen succeed, and that shows you there’s something special in him.”

Let’s all hope that Welbeck can turn it on again and prove once again that Van Gaal made a big mistake by letting him join us to make room for the underperforming Radamel Falcao!

  1. Why wenger keep playing ramsey out of position even if he is not fully fit,

    Play walcot or rosicky until he fully recover from enjury

    Whats the point of having big squad if their is no rotation (even against small teams)

    1. Because evidently he doesn’t rate Theo or anyone else to fulfill the RW role offering something offensive AND covering the RB who is young Bellerin. That in itself should explain to many why Theo IS expendable this summer despite his productive ability.

      1. I think wenger showing that we could play midfielder at that position, so he able to start jack when ramsey gets injured..

        I really think we should play with 2 pacey players,
        With welback upfront im fine with ramsey at RW

    1. 3 top,
      tippy tappers
      Zorla Ozill
      and Sancheckers
      Ramsey is the next
      so plays.
      This is now
      the Arsnal way.

      Worked since Feb
      so why now change
      just because
      we lost one game?

  2. Im supporting danny boy to return to his old house and bag a double against man u! Coyg!

  3. And the same dailymail reporting now that “Welbeck in doubt to face United”. You guys decide which news is true now. I think DM writers are not sure of their genders even, the way they report ‘news’.

  4. Van Gaal is not my kind of person but letting Welbeck join Arsenal was not a major
    issue. He is, in my opinion, not what Arsenal are looking for and Van Gaal knew it.
    Henry speaks like a manager of the future from his commentary box. He knows there is change in the wind and he wants to influence it. His blue print for a Arsenal is somewhat different to Wenger`s and it will take time so we mustn`t expect the too much too soon. Title is a few seasons away.

  5. Whilst the media and Man U fans are willing to kneel at the altar of LvG and are bending over backwards to make excuses there is no evidence this season to persuade the neutral to join in the worship. SAF would have never sold DW because of his high value as a squad player. LvG would never admit to any misgivings or mistakes but whilst DW may not have been a first teamer he was exactly the sort of impact player they could have usefully deployed this season for his pace and tenacity alone.

    As for Henry, all pundits are either ex-players who have dabbled with management and failed miserably (eg: Merson) or whom readily admit they lacked the bottle or conviction to give it a go (most of them fall in to that category). There is zero evidence that Henry would be any better than another Arsenal legend Tony Adams when it comes to football management. If the depth of insight is restricted to buying big and replacing half a team then it suggests a certain detachment from the real world machinations of football management. I could give that advice to every team in Europe that doesn’t win its league.

  6. Give the lad another year to settle with us. Maybe you guys would have preferred Falcao or Balotelli?
