Does this striker have reason to wait for Arsenal offer?

Just Arsenal at related • 2 views
If Arsenal signed every striker they were linked with in the build up to this summer's transfer window, there would be no room for midfielders, defenders or a keeper in the squad. With Nicklas Bendtner off to seek his fortune and find out that nobody else shares his high opinion of himself, I think we [.

Bet you were thinking, Why couldn't we do this last month? You know thrashing a team that is by accounts much weaker than us. At least then we wouldn't have worried just a little bit that Spurs could have overtaken us had we actually lost to Fulham.

That is something we would never have imagined just before we played Barcelona.

Arsenal 4 (Rosicky 43, Fabregas 52, Vermaelen 65, Arshavin 85) Bolton 2 (Cahill 7, Taylor pen 28)

Say what you like about this Arsenal team, you can't deny the mental strength. Fighting back from two goals down on a night where all eyes are on you because of a) the lack of games elsewhere and b) the chance to go top of the league, is no mean feat, especially against a side out for revenge after the weekend.

Because he wanted to pick up his USB stick. Naturally, I didn't feel the need to chuck him out of the house straight away.

When one door is closed, another is opened. RVP's injury gave one of Eduardo, Vela and maybe even Walcott for now to stake a claim.

A mere two months after signing for Liverpool FC, Milan Jovanovic has publicly stated that he'll leave the club if things ‘do not sort themselves out'. With this kind of attitude (shared by certain other vacillating players) I would argue it is he who needs to sort *himself* out.

Jovanovic's comments were reported by The Press Association (A hugely reliable source).
