    Who do we really need to make a difference?

    I agree about Mertesacker and I was one that welcomed the player as he was a big part in the German side and always delivered for them and we all hoped he would do the same for Arsenal.

    I guess the pace of international football is nothing like the premiership and he has been found wanting.

    The appointment of Monreal can only be good as it is competition for Gibbs and Santos will be gone in the summer.

    I think a defensive player in the middle of the park could have been brought in too either a holding midfielder or infact someone to challenge for a position in central defence.

    We have flare players and I am starting to see something in Giroud but its the defence that worries us all and needs attention.

    Despite where we end up this season Arsen will have to buy big this summer as he has publicly said they have the money to buy top quality players, something they haven't said before.

    If he doesn't buy the players to compete against the big spenders then everyone will know it's not the board who held the purse strings but in fact Wenger and the natives wont ne happy!

    I see a Central defender coming in next year as well as a top forward and possibly a Holding midfielder wihich depends on Arteta, Diaby and Ramsey and how they fare!
