Who Do You Think Arsenal Should Sign For Next Season??
April 4, 2007 1:59pm CST
I have been totally dissappointed with how the 2006/7 season has shaped out for us gooners. It started badly then we were looking like we are back to our best. But the past month has turned our season upside down and its hard to believe this is happening to us. Nevertheless, i still believe we will be challenging for the title next season. But we need new players to help us achieve success. Who do you reckon we should sign and what can they offer us??

First of all it is Gunners and not Gooners... but I think the way the season has shaped you can definitely call them Goners!! I think the rot has set in from the back. The goalkeepers both need to be replaced. Almunia and Lehmann are simply not good enough. Lehmann is a good shot stopper, but his temperament kills the team at crucial moments. So he has to be shown the door. Next up, the back four don't have backups. So if Toure or Gallas is injured, we do not have quality backups. I don't know what has happened to Sanderos. He had an excellent last season, but this season has been awful again. Going forward, the midfield is beginning to take shape with Rosicky, Fabregas, Diaby and Hleb. But what is missing is the running down the left flank where Ljunberg used to be a big harassment for teams. Now with his pace going down, we need a replacement there. Up front, there are again no goal scorers apart from Van Persie and Henry. There needs to be good backup at front as well. So these are the areas that Wenger has to address. I would love to see the likes of Torres coming to Arsenal, but I don't see Wenger paying that kind of money for any player. Cheers! Ram

its not that we did badly this season but its just that the others did a lot better! the injuries did affect us a lot. the loss to liverpool this past week was a clear display of lack of experience. it was clear that the game was men against boys! so we need to take in some gud midfielders with a lot of experience. the choices are wide and so the question is too challenging. i wud go for someone from manchester or Essien.

2006/7 season is very dissapointed me also as i hope henry come back from his injury.arsenal give decent performance as henry injured almost one season.but i think wenger has his own opinion that to give young player have a experience. i don't think wenger will need to sign new player because current young player has a great potential in future.example, senderos,eboe,fabregas,wolcot,diaby,van persie.wenger will not spend to buy a million on a good player compared jose maruinho.here my sugestion for next season. formation 1-2-3-4 henry(st) rosicky/debayor(cf) flamini(LWM),gilberto/fabregas(CM),walcot/aboe(RWM) Gallas(LB),toure(CB),senderos(CB),Ebou) lehman(GK). thank you....

I too like all the other arsenal fans am dissapointed by the way they have shaped up this season. But i think it's just because henry has been sidelined for so long, the team were not used to playing this many matches without Henry. I would also like to see Torres playing here. I do believe that the team will make a comeback the next season just like a true gunner.

Luca Toni because he play well in the air and hold ball and he has stamina and strength that suitable for premier ship.second I think Miloslav Klose because he is perfect midfield is good so we don't change anything. defender,we need explosive center back because arsenal play fast and control game so defensive line is high then we need them . I think Lucio is answer.he has stamina,strength,flair, he can play like defensive midfield but better. Goalkeeper we need new face.like Craig Gordon,I think he can stop air attack.and comunication with defender is good too.

this question really make arsene wenger sweating all the night or maybe it can become his nightmare..what can i say, arsenal has no capable to sign any good young player or bring world class player into their team. they should find a way to solve their debt problem because of new stadium..and for now they can only use their young player which sometimes i cannot recognize them..i think they should bring samir nasri into their team.. (who's samir nasri? only god knows)

I share your sentiments about the disappointing performance of Arsenal absolutely-I think Wenger should take a vacation to South America and do the Scouting personally in Brazil, Argentina, Mexico for young talented players-I watch Brazilean and Argentine football a lot, it seems to me everybody in the field playing at anyone time is a star! Just hope that the ones he lands on do not behave like Trevez!

Yeah, it's so sad to see how Arsenal performed recently. Perhaps, there are many injured players this season. I was very happy watching the 3 matches against Liverpool previously, but it's really sad to watch the last week's match. I'll elect for these players: Henry (definitely), Van Persie, Fabregas, Gilberto, Gallas, Rosicky, Helb, Wolcott, Lehmann... Well, that's all I can remember at the moment. ^_^ I think they are good players.
