Arsenal are not scoring goals. The midfield is lacking in creativity and not offering good service to the strikers. We can’t buy goals at the moment. The Gunners need a solid target man and who ever though that Bendtner is one! Without Arshavin, Van Persie, Almunia, Fabregas, Nasri, Gallas & Adebayor the squad looks mediocre.
These are the thoughts that faced me as I watched a toothless Arsenal try to beat Sunderland. We’re talking Sunderland over here and not a big team. How can Arsene Wenger possibly believe that his team is capable of winning anything? Sure when they turn on the skillful passing game it’s sweet and the best thing in football. But when they are not on, the passing turns out to be boring. The only bright spot was that Andry Arshavin looked sharp on his debut. He almost scored twice in the first 15 minutes of the game.
