Ray Parlour spent 14 years at Arsenal, winning three League titles and four FA Cups (and one European Cup-Winners Cup and a League Cup!), so he is entitled to have an opinion about the club in my eyes.
And his opinion is that we should NOT be looking to bring our old captain Cesc Fabregas back to the club if we are really looking to challenge for the title next season. He thinks we should be concentrating on the forward positions.
‘The problem with Fabregas is where do you put him in the team?” Parlour said.
‘They have got very similar players to Fabregas – they have Mesut Ozil, Santi Cazorla, Jack Wilshere – if you bring Fabregas back where do you fit him in?
‘He was great for the club but forwards should be much more of a priority.
‘You look at Manchester City and Liverpool and they have much better forwards.’
it looks like Parlour doesn’t think that Giroud and Sanogo are as good as Suarez/Sturridge or Aguero/Dzeko. Surely you can’t be serious?
