Arsenal fans fume on Twitter as Wenger makes odd striker decision

Watching his stunning return to form this weekend, the Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern were once again chanting Danny Welbeck’s name after his injury nightmare. Two goals against Southampton had the Gunners in the bar dancing, with the England international providing a fresh sense of optimism to them, even despite their lack of activity on the transfer front.
