Wenger must cure Van Persie hangover by spending big as Giroud & Podolski fail to shine

The Gunners need all the firepower on which they can get their hands before the window closes as new signings cannot be expected to fill the void left by the captain's departure.

The story is too old to be commented.

... after just 1 match, and Giroud only getting 30 minutes...

That said, I'd like to see Walcott as a center-forward, especially now that Cazorla has shown he has a great little through-pass to send someone clear on goal.

I'd say it's more important to get a quality replacement for Song instead.

Lol, relax 1 game into the season and now people think Arsenal will drop to second division......Give the new guys a few games to gel. None of them may score 30 goals a season but they can all pitch in a few to make up the numbers. The biggest worry for me is the defense, so far no real backup for Sagna and no idea who will be back up for Diaby(he will replace Song) in midfield.

Wenger is too damn cheap to even bother thinking of paying top money for players the till will obviously need to be competitive this season.

Arsenal are too concern on running a business than a football club.
