    IMO it's a consequence of this collective approach to both attacking /goal scoring & defending, without necessarily having the players suited to do either score or defend = it's the imbalance of too many creative ball players.

    Isn't that guy Sanchez?

    Two of those are loaned out, you can "see" them if you want. I've seen a lot of Campbell for Villarreal and he's been absolutely terrible, no way does he deserve game time here. His time is over imo.

    I think it would be easier to add goals via a WF/ST as IMO Aw wants to retain this current set up based around Giroud as CF.
    Given the choice I'd replace Giroud with Lukaku but still have goal scoring capability from elsewhere to compliment.

    I don't subscribe to the idea that our solution is based upon current internal options.
    Hell I'd rather play 4312 than rely upon Giroud as lone CF.

    and then there was 1????
    As I said earlier IMO the core issue is the collective approach to both attack & defence. Back in The Invincibles we had 3 primary/regular goal scorers in TH, Pires & Ljungberg, with both DB & PV adding in more reliably than our current options.

    that post was pretty much responding to this line,
    And about your post, I believe Wenger also share your view that we should be reliant to a single goal scorer but more focused on sharing goals evenly in our team.
    We clearly see the signs that Wenger learned (the hard way) whenever our 30 goals player left (or injured) our attacks were literally blunt, from Greedy and Judas departure.

    We are beginning to move back toward the times of Invicibles where goals are shared in our team almost evenly in comparison to the days of Cesc where we are reliant to the CF and AM to provide chances and goals.

    How about Schurrle? That guy looks like a German Walcott...

    I would have liked him before he went to CFC, but I don't see Wolfsburg being in any hurry to sell.
    I think he's better than Walcott - same for any number of players.
    IMO the 2 attributes Walcott has over many are pace & his runs ioff the ball. That said I think the likes of Lacazette can also provide this having worked as SS.

    Yeah IMO we dumbed down our capability far too much towards the equality of the collective post RVP = for far too long we were ****e and incapable of scoring goals reliably in the clinches.
    Walcott hasn't been able to stay fit long enough to be a reliable 2nd option, and Giroud wasn't reliable enough to be primary option, and the CM/AMs were/are primarily creators not finishers.

    Watched Bayer Leverkusen yesterday again. Not convinced about either Bellarabi or Firmino.

    My favourite additional goalscorer would be Griezmann.

    Is Higuain still banging them in?

    20+ this season and last. He's a goalscorer no doubt but I doubt he fits in Wenger's plans.

    He is good finisher can score 15-20 goals in the season without problem but every time i watch him with Napoli i'm not impressed with his all round game he just waiting in the box for the ball come to him unlike Giroud who try to create spaces for him teammates, the Napoli fans are not impressed with Higuain work rate this season.

    A quick check on Wikipedia would contradict this statement:



    I do not really see much difference. A similar range of goal scorers in both seasons. Most seasons there was always one leading goal scorer, one deputy with a solid 10+ and then a selection of players who chipped in a few goals (1-10).

    The exception is probably 2009/10 squad which was quite frankly a bit poor that year.

    Welbeck frustrates the life out of me, his natural attributes (speed, close control, balance, stamina) all top notch. But his decision making and predatory instinct is severely lacking. If Wenger can turn Welbeck into a goalscorer that'll be one of his greatest accomplishments IMO.

    That said, he turned shot-shy Cesc into a CAM who was capable of double figures, so maybe it's not that much of a stretch.

    Welbeck need to work alot in training with his finishing hopefully Wenger can make Welbeck better.

    I reckon there is a good fwd waiting to come out , lord knows his athletic ability is superior to just about anything in the league ,it's unbelievable . Cesc was actually quite prolific as a kid and top scorer at one of the junior WC's
    that Spain won .

    Yeah there's a lot to work with with Welbeck, his performances for England are testament to that, dude plays like El-Phenomeno himself. As for Cesc I had no idea! I just remember him being a kid here and looking for a pass every time there was an opportunity to go for goal himself.

    I suppose you learn something new every day :D

    I think this is it really, Wenger wants Özil to add more goals and he has been doing so and can continue to improve. Welbeck and Chamberlain need to improve their end product.

    All 3 of those happening is probably as exciting as a new signing.
