Heard that before? I think we all agree there is a need but this post will investigate a little deeper.

Let's look at the problem. We have been over-reliant on Giroud, little argument there but why have we been so reliant upon the Frenchman? Because our other strikers have been not performed this season?

Whoscored.com took an in-depth look this week at another end of season slump by the Gunners.

A couple of things stand out in the post.

Arsene Wenger made a decision a year ago that he wanted a small squad, and that decision is really coming back to haunt him. When Arsenal went to Bayern in the Champions League last month, they did not even have enough fit players to make up a full subs bench.

The news came that Theo had opted for the most risk free treatment for his ACL injury. It is also the treatment that will keep him on the sidelines for the longest time.

Theo will undergo a patella tendon graft which is thought to offer the best long-term guarantees after a gruelling period of rehabilitation.

I think it's fair to say Arsenal will approach this game in the right mindset, only too aware of how capable Villa's faster players (Benteke, Agbonlahor, Delph) are of causing damage. Ironically little time has been spent looking back at the opening fixture of the season which saw Arsenal convincingly beaten.

Hello once more, and welcome to this corner of what the downstairs staff inform me is called ‘The Internet'. I have no interest in the ghastly thing. I do not even own a ‘computer', whatever that is. I work much like Mrs Cartland, the dreadful pleb. I recline on a chaise longue, or perhaps in my favourite bath chair (Number 6), or perhaps in the bath.

Finding a new balance

It would have been difficult to believe, back in the summer of 2006, that 17 year old Theo Walcott would still be awaiting his World Cup debut after his 29th birthday. Yet that's the regrettable situation he finds himself in. On a human level it is impossible not to feel sympathy with Walcott. His progress might have been more laboured than some would have liked, but injury always seems to find him at the same time that consistency does.

Of course this weekend will seem interminably long because we have to wait until Monday night for our game against Aston Villa. At which point we'll likely be down the table a bit because there's no way that either Man City or Chelsea are going to drop points considering the easy fixtures they've got.
