It’s fair to say a few Arsenal fans in the Football Transfer Tavern were somewhat underwhelmed with the deadline day signing of Danny Welbeck.
Whilst Manchester United were completing the signing of a proven world class striker, Arsene Wenger was paying £16 million for a forward deemed not good enough for the Old Trafford bench.
But the tune seems to be changing regarding Welbeck somewhat, after the 23-year-old’s display for England against Switzerland on Monday evening.
The ‘centre forward’ fired both goals as the Three Lions ran out 2-0 winners in Basel while giving Arsenal fans a taste of his finishing ability from that central area – where he is expected to feature for the Gunners.
Arsenal fans seem to have taken to the striker since Monday’s performance, so much so they have gone to the trouble of putting his face on a ten pound note.
Maybe they are trying to suggest he is ten times the player a certain Raheem Sterling is? Surely not..
