you're not 'screwed', you're just short a striker.
I understand your frustrations about certain gaps that never seem to be closed, but else you're looking good and did some good business already.

Ospina, Debuchy, Sanchez and Chambers have all been great signing but they are only replacement.

We really need a DM and striker, we could do with out a CB for now imo. We have been short a DM and striker for past few years and still not adding anyone.

I agree with Rapz. Unless we're extremely unlucky and Per and Kos get injured at the same time, I think we'll be OK at CB.
A real legit goalscoring striker and a DM is what we really need!

Whats more frustrating than anything is when Wenger brings up the striker situation he says we have Sanogo coming back. Who the hell is Sanogo? what has he done other than being injured every other day? we had some of the greatest strike force in history, what the hell is Sanogo going to do?

I am sorry that I am picking on Sanogo, I hope one day he becomes a Arsenal legend but for now Wenger is a mad man.


Sunday – Podolski off to Wolfsburg. Wenger $$$$$$$$$$$$$$
Monday – Giroud out for 3 months.  Wenger Mad  Mad  Mad
Tuesday – Wenger – “Podolski is staying at Arsenal”  Wenger Heart

Who did Sanchez replace?

Sanchez and Campbell have come in as additions.

Ospina, Debuchy and Chambers can be considered replacements.

No one said our business was done, Wenger's said just the opposite so I don't understand what the panic is about. I would if the deadline had passed lol.

Sanchez was suppose to be replacement for Podolski leaving but Giroud got injured.

We have basically the same amount of players as last year except half of them are injured already! So much for bolstering the squad.

Joel was Podolski's replacement. Sanchez was an additional signing.

tbh, we havent addressed our priorities this window..
at the end of last season what we needed was a CF and DM.. GK and RB as situation warrants..

Debuchy for Sagna and Ospina for Fabianski were very good deals..
not sure whether you consider Alexis as a CF.. i see him more as the direct dribbler winger who we needed to add to our attack..
DM.. will we ever get one ?

and with Giroud and Arteta injured now, may be it is just an reminder for Wenger to learn from last seasons mistake..

Yes, Campbell would have most likely taken Podolski's spot with Gnabry thereby guaranteed more time as he'd be competing with someone with less experience than Poldi.

But as it stands, we have two additions.

And I wouldn't scoff at our replacements just because players have departed. They're all younger than the players they replaced. Chambers has a much higher ceiling than Vermaelen and Debuchy is in his prime while Sagna is on the decline.

Ospina will also give Shez more competition than Fabianski.

I could imagine now that you didn't sign Manolas (who probably didn't like the idea of being 3rd/4th choice CB) you might get a DM that can play CB. That really should suffice on that front imo.

Assurances of regular first team football likely made the difference in the end. Roma is a very good club to be at right now, too.

Six days to go and three players needed. Can't see it, somehow. Think we'll see one come in and that'll be it. I hope it's a centre back as at least we can play Chambers in midfield.

Hope it's William Carvalho still. Chambers has proven reliable at CB, albeit in a short amount of time to judge him on.

I don't think a ST is out of the question but would prefer we sort the DM issue first. I don't know how confident I'd be of putting Chambers in midfield and switching him around too much, he's said he's enjoying CB.

Gustavo agent says player is staying with Wolfsburg.
Khedira staying at Real Madrid says Ancelotti.

Carvalho or nobody?

If it's one player we sign, I hope it's a striker. It's most important that we don't let Sanogo start games for 3 months, a defensive midfielder or backup centre won't win us games if we have someone like Sanogo start games for us.

If it's two players, striker and DM. Chambers can cover well enough as CB, better than Vermaelen ever did and we rarely needed him.

Are you linked with any striker?
Which striker could it be?

Does it really matter who? We could sign Shola Ameobi and call it an improvement Laughing

But yeah, we're not linked to many strikers because it will not happen, just wishful thinking from my part. Especially now that (apparently) Podolski is staying.

Two names that have come up since Giroud's injury have been Remy - £8mil clause, easy to get if we want him - and Welbeck, who's been allegedly told he can leave United. Eto'o's name came up, too, but he's signed for Everton.

Oh, and Falcao and Cavani, too. Don't know who they are, though.

I agree but am still hoping for a CF. I just don't think that Wenger sees a need for a DM in the modern game. Hasn't he even said that before?

I'm not sure he's said that but he's said, when directly asked if he'd sign a DM: "I'm not against that."
