Arsenal Message Board
It is high time we invest in players now that we have a stadium to brag about. But who should we buy? It think for once that we need another clinicer striker, Klose will be excellent since he is a terror in the air. We also need a midfield general like our former captain Viera, a would say Reo Coker is perfect. And then a new No. 1 since Jens might leave, I say Boruc or Carson are the people. What do you people think we need to bring some silverware in te team.
we should definetely look to steal Carson or Foster away.
We need a left winger, MG Pedersen is perfect, he has the skill to be an arsenal player, maybe get wiltord back
We need a finisher to partner Henry up front, maybe look to get in som1 young, Robinho, he's available, but we will also need a Nistelrooy type player, we don't have any, maybe...Adriano if that is remotely possible
I agree that we dont need any more midfielders or strikers
We need one more backup in our defensive line and
seriously we must think about replacing Lehman with an outstanding goalkeeper. Almunia is good but not oustanding....
I have not seen much of Poum to judge.
I Feel that all we need is a wide player and a goalkeeper.
As far as the goalkeepers are concerned,i'm not sure if carson is the answer;i do however,like the look of the bolton 'keeper,he's 31(prime goalkeeping years) and he's a good shotstopper,not prone to 'madness'like lehman,who however comical,does not spread confindence in the back four.
Reo-cocker is DEFINATELY not the answer in midfield....He's similar to flamini...enough said.
We are crying out for some width....so a wide player who score goals would be good.
We have enough central midfield players,defenders and attackers....don't forget we have bendtner to come back as well.

We need a new keeper, but I don't think that we need a wide midfielder. What do you want him for, we don't have a single player in front of the back four who can head a ball!
What we need is at least one big & tall central defender (gooder header of a ball) to come in, because Gallas is so injury-prone, and none of the other, except Toure, can do the job well. Toure cannot do it alone! I think that is one of the reasons he seems to get so frustrated recently because he has been needed to patch up a leaky defence practically on his own- and he is also rather vulnerable to high crosses!
The right side of the defence also needs s/o who can actually stop the opposition from coming into the penalty area. At the moment, our defenders at this position could only basically delay the opposition from come in/crossing into the penalty area.
And finally, we DO need a STRIKER. Ever since RvP got injured, we have had no strikers- the bunch we have are really converted midfielders. Why do you think that we created 10-15 reasonable chances in the CSKA home game and could not score a single goal? I haven't seen bentner, but think he would stay and sign for Birmingham in the summer. I have Samuel Eto'o in mind.
One last word, whenever the opposition is attacking in our half at least 2 midfielders should be prepared to come back to help out the defence- 1 chasing the ball and delaying the oppo. attack, the other should go to the front edge of the penalty area to read the situation and be ready to help out. There have been so many occassions, esp on our right side, we only had one defender.
how about if we steal King & Lennon like the way we steal Campbell? lol... would be nice to see more outrage from WHL... lol... imagine the speed we have if we have Reyes and Lennon at our flank...
and I wouldn't mind taking in Carson or Foster, just as long as they are not another Richard Wright...

well we need etoo in my opinion, because we aint got any real goalscorers apart from henry and rvp, cause adebayor, baptista, walcott and aliadiere arent scoring we are making it hard for ourselves, also i think the diaby, denilson and fabregas are the future so we have no need to sign another midfielder, a keeper is a certainty, in the papers we are looking at jussi jaskellian however u spell him, i like to see carson or buffon to be honest
