    What players do we need during the January window?

    What players do we really need during the January window?

    IMO
    1. A left back - when Gibbs is injured, which he often is we drop too much in quality with Santos and we should not play Vermaelen as left back given how often Gibbs is injured.

    2. Big midfield player - When Diaby was fit for a few games in the beginning of the season we had the benefit of his size in midfield and on set pieces. I think we need to accept that we can not rely on him and need to buy an end to end midfield player in the mold of yaya or patrick.

    3. Striker.

    • Do you think Jernade Meade can do a job as a left back better than Santos?

      Agreed that our midfielders are too small and physically not very robust. But, who would you realistically suggest that we could sign in January for this role?

      I am ok with the strikers department, but, instead, would like s/o with tricks and able to get past defenders 1-on-1.

      In addition, I would like Wenger to try hard to get Chris Samba, if at all possible. We missed the opportunity big time when he was available last time round.
