Jesus out until March…Nketiah’s time? Nah…we need to get a striker in the transfer window but are the options?

First thing first…I think England will win against France, unfortunately for me…but England has the better team and we have some outstanding players so…

So Jesus got injured on his only start in the WC…What bad luck! Anyways, we hope he can come back stronger and soon…

Now we need a hard working striker but who?

  • J. David or Buchanan from Canada?
  • Osimhen from Nigeria?
  • Michail Antonio?
  • Raphael Borre from Columbia?
  • Tammy Abraham from England?
  • Lucas Holer from Germany?
  • Ben Yedder or Neal Maupay from France?
  • Osihmen from Nigeria?

So the search is on but really, we are gonna miss G. Jesus

    Here are the best young strikers, therefore more affordable than superstars like Ronaldo, but would any of them be available:

    Phil Foden
    Kai Haverts
    Jadon Sancho
    Moussa Diaby
    Florian Wirtz
    Mason Greenwood
    Vinicius Junior
    Justin Kluivert

    There is also the possibility of bringing back Giroud or trying Ronaldo, but it is always a risk and they probably wouldn’t accept an offer from us.

  2. RC78 says:

    Diaby is not what we need and Greenwood is about to be in jail…Kluivert couldn’t cut it in the French league. Foden, Sancho, and Vini are not moving. Haverts, why not and Wirtz not good enough…

    Now there is a new kid on the block: Goncalo Ramos. Had 2 good seasons and is now having a good world cup…

    Giroud is always welcome back

    2 osihmen I think it on only, I say give Eddie a chance none of them of the names above five me much confidence and raw one that do are having great season at there current club

    One thing Jesus didn’t score enough goals and Eddie is a greader player so hoping he can bag a few goals

  4. fred1266 says:

    What a weird list OMG especially since Greenwood has bin banished last I heard

  5. fred1266 says:

    Can’t see giroud movng mid season and havertz someone who can even score for their current squad

    Just give Eddie the chance

  6. JM says:

    Scoring load to be shared by every available matchday outfield player but especially the attackers (Ødegaard, Nketiah, Smith Rowe, Fábio Vieira, Nelson, Marquinhos) and (Saka and Martinelli when they return and recover from their World Cup exertions)

    I would get a veteran forward on a 6 month loan with option to purchase (if we are serious about competing for the PL title this season and not only getting a top four). Someone who plays similarly like Jesus, for example Gerald Moreno (of Villarreal).

  7. omgarsenal says:

    Fred 1266…….it isn’t weird at all, as it is intended to be an addendum to the original list as posted. All of these players are considered to be top strikers, but certainly AFC and Arteta are well ahead of us in terms of their transfer activities…we are simply engaging in idle speculation.

  8. LB says:

    Thanks for the post RC, it definitely needed freshening up. I can’t see past a loan deal when it comes to a striker but I do expect a wide player to come in.

  9. LB says:

    Am I the only one who thinks that Foden would cost more than Ronaldo, or am I missing something?

  10. LB says:

    Eddie is going to start against West Ham, we may as well get used to that.

  11. fred1266 says:

    Jesus hasn’t been clinical so we don’t need him to score much goals once he brings the workrate and link up play then we would be fine

  12. LB says:

    Bonus player……Martinelli will be starting against West Ham.

  13. fred1266 says:

    Welcome back saka and Aaron hopefully dey would be in West Ham game

    Saka is really a great player not sure why but he was sub but am glad cause I wanted French to win

  14. fred1266 says:

    Really happy for giroud should have score his first chance so glad he got a redo

  15. fred1266 says:

    Sad saliba hasn’t gotten a game, upamecano shouldn’t be starting over him

  16. LB says:

    Be careful what you wish for Fred, at the moment he is coming back in good health and that is the way we want him.

  17. fred1266 says:

    More importantly ramsdale starts against West Ham

  18. VP says:

    Croatia through to Semi’s again. I’m very happy and I think we’ll beat the Argies and then it probably will be a repeat WC final except that we win it this time😍

    Why take off your best player in Saka? Penultimate penalty kick and you hand it to a Spursy player🤦🏻

    Yes let’s go for Ramos or bring back Giroud

  19. fred1266 says:

    Yea I was also shocked saka came off, seriously don’t know how people still believe in Sterling

  20. F says:

    Anyone else heard we are interested in jao Felix APPARENTLY He wants out and to play in premium

    Dey want 100 euros but dey will allow him to leave on loan with guaranteed option to buy


  21. pbarany says:

    Arsenal don’t need a ST at all, as Jesus is not really useful on the wings (see Auba), and we don’t intend to switch to 4-4-2 or 3-5-2 when Jesus will be fit again.

    So it’s either Nketiah, and we cross our fingers that he delivers in the next couple of months or we sign a player who is equally useful on the wings as well as up front, so even with a resurrected Jesus he can rotate the winger positions with Martinelli and Saka.

    I don’t think any players would apply from RC’s post, Sancho, Diaby, Vinicius and Kluivert never played up front from OMG’s list. Foden would perfectly fit the bill, but City would never sell him, especially to Arsenal. So it leaves us with Havertz from OMG’s list, or Joao Felix (too expensive), Gakpo and Depay from the Dutch team. I would prefer to go with Gakpo, but I could live with no attacking reinforcements in the winter.

  22. VP says:

    pbarany “resurrected Jesus”, brilliant, however lets get through Christmas before moving onto Easter:-)

  23. LB says:

    Perfect, so Saliba doesn’t have to get involved in any of that parade nonsense and can be back for the restart of proper football COYRRG

  24. fred1266 says:

    Doesn’t matter cause he didn’t play so would have been back regardless

  25. RC78 says:

    I am so upset…2 final losses in PKs in the last 5 world cup VS 1 one win…I am still upset about 2006 and now 2022…The worse is losing to teams like Italy and Argentina…At least if you lose to England or Brazil, it makes it a bit less painful but these teams are annoying with vindictive players and fans…can’t take it…only silver lining is that some key players came through for France like Kolo Muani and M. Thuram…Anyways, the healing has started but would go faster if Arsenal won the league and PSG the champions league.

  26. RC78 says:

    A Team – Martinez – Hakimi, Romero, Gvardiol, T. Hernandez – Amarabat, De Paul, Modric – Griezman – Messi, Mbappe

    B Team – Livakovic – Acuna, Varane, Saiss, Molina – Fernandes, Rabiot, Bellingham – Gakpo, Giroud (or Alvarez), Saka (or Richarlison)

    Team of the tournament for me

  27. fred1266 says:


    U forgot to.mentioned Portugal euros

  28. RC78 says:

    Don’t remind me Fred…that was also agonizing…

  29. RC78 says:

    1998 – very good
    2000 – excellent
    2006 – agonizing and upsetting
    2016 – agonizing
    2018 – very good
    2021 – very good
    2022 – agonizing and upsetting

  30. fred1266 says:

    Watching those dates rc78 seems I might be the problem since I started supporting France after 1998

  31. LB says:

    Well that was a great game and a great result.

  32. fred1266 says:

    Nice to see arsene back at the Emirates as well

  33. Maxwell says:


    Come on. We’re all at it now. “Of course, I know Arsenal has no chance of actually winning the League this season”, while thinking, “Ohmigod, I can’t help believing they’re going to do it!”

    And it’s all Mikel Arteta’s fault – not to mention Bukayo Saka, Martin Odegaard, Gabriel Martinelli, Eddie Nketia, Granit Xhaka, Thomas Partey, Kieran Tierney, Oleg Zinchenko, Gabriel Magalaes, William Saliba, Benjamin White, Aaron Ramsdale. If I leave out ESR, Tomi, Jesus, it’s only that they’re not available at the moment.

    Firstly, they’re winning. This is what every supporter desires of their team, but so few of us experience on a sustained basis.

    But more. They are playing with such brio, such confidence, such pace, such touch, such control, one feels swept along on this tide of belief.

    They go 0-1 down to a soft penalty. No longer do we feel doom and gloom. We are happy that they will solve the problem. And we are proved correct.

    A couple of favourite moments from the West Ham encounter: foremost has to be when Saka bullied Declan Rice off the ball, then grabbed it from Odegaard’s toes to instigate the move that led to Martinelli’s goal; another involving Rice, when Martinelli forced a corner off Dawson, and the camera showed a desperate and exhausted Rice trudging back into his penalty area, looking round hopelessly at his inept teammates; everything that Ben White did – this guy is just so cool, so sublime, who one dreamed of being in the school playground, who exudes not giving a shit; everything that Martin Odegaard does, with his eye for a crucial pass and his twinkle toes and his non-stop effort; Gaby terrorising defenders; Eddie’s superb roll of Kehrer and unstoppable shot.

    Wow. Torn between ecstasy and waiting for the dream to crash. Is it going to be like this till May? I’m over seventy now, and not sure my heart can keep up, but still I hope so.

    Yea how saka bullied rice was amazing lol
