Striker hope for Arsenal

https://i1.wp.com/static.guim.co.uk/sys-images/Football/Pix/pictures/2008/11/12/1226526716866/Jay-Simpson-and-Arsene-We-001.jpg?resize=286%2C171Arsene Wenger does have the choice of recruiting a striker for the time being before the January transfer window opens.

Jay Simpson – on loan at QPR – is Arsenal’s forgotten man but insists he would be more than happy to return home as an emergency fix for the Gunners.

Rusty attacking displays against Sunderland and Chelsea bared Arsenal’s lack of an out-and-out striker in the absence of Van Persie and Nicklas Bendtner with Eduardo and Vela struggling to lead the line upfront.

Simpson though, has been prolific during his spell at QPR and netted his eighth goal in 14 matches in a 2-2 draw with Coventry last weekend.

The 20-year-old was in bright form during Arsenal’s Carling Cup outings last season – scoring a brace against Wigan – and proved strong with his back to goal as a striker during his loan spell at West Brom later in the campaign.

“The goal (against Coventry) won’t have done me any harm and I keep in touch with the young Arsenal lads,” he said

“I know the club come and watch all my home games and they’ve got copies of my performances, but it is out of my hands whether I get recalled or not – it’s down to the staff there.”

“I want to play at the top level, so if this can help my development, then great. But they’ve picked up a lot of injuries at Arsenal at the moment and I’m confident I can score constantly in the Premier League.”

  1. Striker Wanted…where do I sign up?

    All jokes aside we need a striker really bad! I hope we can get one in January! The loss against Chelsea was a tough one to swallow. Wenger needs to get this right already. We’ve been biting our nails for so long now. When will this nightmare end. We need to get back to our winning/ dominating ways. We have been owned by Chelsea for a long time now.

    Our players on Sunday looked disinterested! Yeah, good passing but they did not step up to score and try to break down Chelsea’s defense. 2 games without scoring is not a good thing.

    I hope we can put this behind us and look what we are going to miss if we continue this sort of run.

    I believe!

    Go Gunners!

  2. jay would be good for us…..no money spent plus he is strong and tall almost 6ft. but a striker like toni would be great. tall and strong….if we get a good striker and yaya toure then we will be awesome… we need those 2 players to up our physical presence… we must try to win the fa cup too

  3. Randy, as much as I hate to see these kind of injuries I get a sense of satisfaction that we too can play physical! Boy does it make me feel good to know that what happened last Sunday was def something nobody saw coming! We are def up there with Chelsea, but most of the boys didn’t step up..PERIOD! Personally, we needed, Diaby and Bendtner for that game!

    Go Gunners!

  4. HAHAAHA….seriously we cant go out of the carling cup. Mr.wenger never prioritizes the F.A or carling. Carling is understandable but why the F.A cup. if we put a good team for the F.A and carling those 2 trophies will be a building block….and do well in the champions league. if he doesnt win anything this season then he may well quit…as players like fab will be gone.ps(IF WE HAVE TO WE SHOULD SELL HIM TO REAL).(I HATE BARCA).

  5. Probably Wenger is going to bring Chamakh to Arsenal in January, if Arsenal keeps losing in Competition…
