    Judging a player on one game is a bit silly tbf, he's definitely a £20mil striker who'll score us 20 goals a season easily. If you have **** like cleverly behind you what do you expect not exactly ozil cazorla and ramsey is it? That being said I'm not entirely sure we need a striker, if we keep playing walcott up top then I'd rather a proper RW to a striker, pedro or milner are good options tbf
    I wasn't judging him on one game otherwise I wouldn't of called him **** beforehand

    I don't blame him for todays game, but bearing in mind his price tag is £30m it would be ridiculous. He's a mid table player at best. Let's not forget Giroud can get 20 goals a season too

    sanogo and Welbeck had Alexis Ozil and Cazorla ffs. Benteke to Arsenal is the most ludicrous idea I've heard in a while. Hardly an upgrade on Giroud and yet people were so reluctant on bringing Mandzukic over

    nah you had plenty of players who played better than him.
    just because he scored a cracking goal, doesn't mean he instantly becomes the best performer on the pitch.

    Coquelin was excellent, Ozil had a great game, Cazorla had some kind of superpower today, etc...

    Mandzukic would've been great for you.
    Lewandowski would also be perfect but that will never happen unless Bayern bought a top striker in his place.

    Sanogo is a pine tree, he missed tap ins that a 5 year old could net in bro. No one is saying Benteke is/should come to Arsenal, I'm just saying with someone who has potential like him, he could be essential to our squad. His £32M buy-out clause is ridiculous. I was open to the idea of Mandzukic joining Arsenal btw.

    Benteke would be such a poverty signing, but not quite as bad as the Zigic rumours in January.

    Why hasn't he then, in 3 seasons? His record is so poverty considering the players around him

    FFS he's scored 19 whilst missing 3 months off the season? Pretty sure he scored around 23 the season beforehand too.

    How good the record is, is a different argument. My point is there's no reason to replace a 20 goal a season striker with another when we can buy better players..

    At £30mil no way would i want him but £20mil is a shout. He's arguably a safer bet than lacazette and let's be honest wengs would probably play him out on wing anyway I'd be happy be giroud and walcott, two solid goalscorers, plus either a winger or 2 or a winger and striker.

    He got 22 last season and 19 this season despite 3 months out. His game just doesn't resolve around goals, his hold up, presence and link up play has been an important contribution too. Let's not forget he cost £9.6M. He has a significantly better technical level than most premier league target men too

    Don't people normally mean league goals when they talk about a 20 goal a season striker? I mean 20 goals in about 45-50 games is hardly worth mentioning, it's the bare minimum for a top team's striker

    Glad some one else agrees. Zigic was after Giroud's injury during the summer window IIRC

    I'd much rather shell out that sort of money for a player like Kane/Lacazette than Benteke tbh. Even if they costed around £40m it's still much more value for money than the likes of £30m Benteke..

    I regret that we didn't go for Bony tbh, when Swansea wanted £19m.

    Well I assumed he meant in all comps and so did I. But like I said, I'm not saying his record is good/bad here, I'm saying it would be a stupid idea to replace him with Benteke

    Okay. Yeah you can do better than Benteke, just need to make your yearly big signing a striker this time

    I really wanted to get it this year, but I was working inconvenient shifts including weekends so I would miss a lot of the games earlier on in the season.

    Worth noting btw that Walcott's goal came from when he temporarily moved to the wing
