Arsenal in for striker transfer after Newcastle struggle?

Arsene Wenger would not say so of course, but he must have been very worried as he sat and watched his almost full strength Arsenal side struggle to make much impression on the goal of a ten man Newcastle team. The only good thing to come out of the game, to be honest, was the three points but if this latest toothless performance can persuade the boss that he really could do with another striker, then maybe the win will not be the only positive.

The home side were reduced to 10 men after a quarter of an hour but it really did not help as Wenger had gone for Walcott instead of Giroud, thinking that the game would be fairly open and that the England forward would be able to use his spedd and direct runs to exploit the space. Instead he was crowded out and Arsenal were unable to thread the through balls in to him.

We should have had a penalty before that red card and that would have made it a completely different game as Newcastle would have had to come out but that was not the case. We still should have been able to break them down but Giroud had little effect when he came on either, so surely the boss must see that we need to sign a striker. Is there really any doubt?

  1. Its true every football fan in the world knows that we need a striker not Giroud.You can imagine the last minute chance he wasted against New C.It was good that we were leading.If for instance New C.was leading.Then what Giroud did with only the G.K to beat.Some of could be in hospitals now.I thank God we won even if it was an own goal. Anyway, we need a good striker and another defensive midfielder as abackup.
