0-1 T. Vermaelen 7'
0-2 L. Podolski 15'
0-3 L. Podolski 42'
0-4 Gervinho 63'
Koln fans must be heartbroken At least Podolski paid respect by not celebrating
Now that's more like the Gervinho we thought we were signing last year. Let's hope he carries this form into the upcoming season.
did RVP play?
Yes he came on around 70mins and took the captains armband but looked unfit/lazy/not interested.
I don't know what to think about him taking the armband from the Verminator. Unless he extends his contract I don't think most arsenal fans will want him to keep the armband even if he stays for the rest of the season.
Podolski is a solid signing. We've got so many great wingers now, even Gervinho is showing some killer instincts, finally! All the new arrivals have fired up the squad. Hope Giroud gets even better and then we won't be needing a certain someone any more.
Cazorla and Podolski looked like they've been playing in the team for years. Giroud may need just a little more adjusting, but it shouldn't take more than a couple of more games. Maybe Wenger should give Chamakh another chance too. When RVP was injured Chamakh was playing well, but as soon as RVP came back he was benched, which to me completely destroyed his confidence. The rest of the team looke solid Today.Just need to make sure Walcott extends his contract make sure Song stays or get a replacement for him and SOME BACK UP FOR SAGNA.
Sagna's absence is the only thing that can really hurt Arsenal now, every other spot is almost covered up.
Podolski and cazorla are best addition who can benefit arsenal from their past experience.what makes them special addition is their usual hunger to win a trophy.
