So another transfer window has come and gone and Arsenal supporters in the Football Transfer Tavern have been left with mixed feelings.
Deadline day saw Arsene Wenger spend some cash on a new striker but not the one most supporters wanted.
When news broke yesterday morning that Manchester United had agreed a loan deal for Radamel Falcao, many Gunners fans questioned why Wenger had not made a move for the Colombian striker.
A proven world class striker, there is no doubt that the signing of Falcao would have topped last summer’s deadline day deal for Mesut Ozil and surely got Gunners fans predicting a season of either Premier League or Champions League glory.
As it happened, Arsene Wenger instead turned his attention to the man who had fallen further down the Old Trafford pecking order following Falcao’s arrival – agreeing a £16 million move for Danny Welbeck.
The England international’s signing has brought a mixed response from Arsenal fans given his poor goal scoring record in the Premier League over the past two seasons.
But we have identified five reasons why Welbeck will turn out to be a success at the Emirates Stadium – honestly!
