Up front we lose Theo as a potential central forward and that’s maybe where we have to look outside. But we hopefully have Bendtner back in three weeks. We are there for the opportunities but it’s very difficult at the moment.
Hoorah, Arsene wants a striker. So Theo is a striker, so why does he play on the wing, ah, I know, he’s a winger! Anyway, if the manager is truthing, we can expect to see a striker signed. Then again, he’s got a lot of history of teasing us fans when it comes to transfers but for once, I think he’s…… Who knows…
Clearly he tried to sign Ba in the summer and we are worse off now than we were then, so maybe there really is a good chance someone will be in before the end of January.
Why it’s taking so long I just don’t know but knowing how many other clubs seem to dislike us for some reason, well maybe that’s why.
Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti insists that striker won’t be Alvaro Morata though having played ten minutes in the Copa del Rey.
We have not changed our idea at all. Morata stays here and he has not told us that he wants to leave.
We’ll see on that one…..
More good news as Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain had a run out for the under 21′s last night and he’s back in the squad to face Aston Villa on Monday, the very same fixture in which he picked up his injury. Five months he’s been out. Where has that time gone eh?
More good news. Both Aaron Ramsey and Kieran Gibbs are very close to a return, in fact so close, both could be at least on the bench for the Villa game and Olivier Giroud and Mesut Ozil are back on Monday too, so all is looking quite positive…. …
Nicklas Bendtner though won’t be back in training for three weeks, but as much as it’s cruel for the player, his absence, together with Walcott’s should be enough to ensure we sign a striker…
Only 21 days left to make it happen….
That’s your lot for another day, have a good one.
