A 30 goal a season striker and some defensive cover would be nice!

Ozil signing for Arsenal has really **** on the Spurs fireworks!

I actually think we are okay for defensive cover.

Sagna
Gibbs
Mert
Kos
Vermaelen
Jenks
Monreal
Flamini

Sagna can play CB, and Flamini can play fullback.

Re: The Arsenal FC Thread 2013/2014

Still painfully short of numbers. Need this Ozil signing to happen plus a couple of squad players.

According to the BBC the Ba deal is a definite no go.

A great player...not sure he was what you ultimately needed.

Not sure how you'll do with Giroud and Bendtner up front all season though.

I do think you could have done with a proper central defender. Still at least you've bought someone.

Walcott can go up front if need be. I'm sure we'll go for a striker in January or next summer.

Everyone needs a Mesut Oezil on their team
We did need a Suarez but it didn't happen. We'll be ok.
As for our defence, we were second best in the league last season which indicates to me it's the other end of the pitch we need to worry about more.

This is a Bergkamp level signing, the start of something big hopefully.

Re: The Arsenal FC Thread 2013/2014

Mixed feelings about yesterday. Absolutely delighted (& amazed) that we managed to pick up someone of Ozil's quality, but disappointed that we add a couple more bodies to the squad.

Hoping & praying that Mesut doesn't get injured on international duties (or any of our other players for that matter).
