    David Bentley and Jermaine Pennant

    Bentley scores a hatrick and you want him back!!!??? Pennant is a scally wag who did not make the grade at Highbury because he had problems with discipline and he was not good enough, the same goes for Quincy. If they were good enough, they would be playing....just look at Adiby, 19 years old and straight into the team and our best player in the last 2 games. Walcott will get a chance and he will do us a job when Freddie(who suddenly is also playing well) goes. Wenger knows what he is doing and we are rebuilding, so just sit tight for a season and watch them go again!

    • Nice one David. It gets a tad annoying when so called fans start talking about how bad our manager is for letting certain players go, or that he's not astute enough to come up with a plan B. Nice to know that there are fans out there who understand what he's trying to do.

      • Hi bare2all.. I like your subtle insult. It sounds like you are actually dont totally disaggree with what I am saying.

        Wenger might be one of the best man managers and shrewd business man but even he gets it wrong sometimes. Even Mr Wenger will admit that himself.

        I am not saying he should not have let Bentley or Pennant go but those two will have been doing a better job (on thier current form) than some of those he has kept.

        Pennant being a bad boy is an excuse - if Wenger had given him more chance and perhaps read the riot act a la Mourinho to Cole then it might have been a different story.

        Bentley is English and tough enough otherwise he would not be flourishing at Blackburn. Jermaine's talent cannot be questioned as per his dribbling skills and crosses. Wenger does not value wingers and target men so it is understandable that he allowed him to go.

        However, his insistence on foreign talented nancies is now costing the club.

        Apparently, Hleb does not fancy the physical nature of the Premier League; the same with Reyes.

        The problem here is that since we managed to win by playing fancy footy it is hard to argue to much but things have moved on and opposition now know how to play Arsenal...

        Anyway, all managers make mistakes and all managers buy rubbish so it is not a big deal.

        But penny pinching and buying same sort of foreign players is a worry for me but if I am proved worng then fine.

        Now can someone tell me about Larsson. What is he good at?
