    Watford - Arsenal - Ribery

    I have to say that the thought of Franck Ribery joining us is quite exciting, however I also feel that we have enough cover at the moment in all areas.

    What is quite amazing to me is the fact that so many of our players are still young and with the inclusion of the young Brazillian Denilson I see great things for the future...AW really is a master of beautiful Football or close to it.

    So, with that said I believe that with the wind behind us after winning the last god knows how many, without complacencey we should win on Saturday by a good clear two goals.

    Arsenal 3 - 1 Watford

    • Stevemakie i agree that we will probably beat Watford(not sure what the score will be though).....
      As regards Ribery,i think that he's an ok player,but he plays with his 'head down' a lot so he doesn't spot a pass quickly enough in my opinion.Also i'm not sure where he would play in the team.Denilson is not your 'typical' brazilian player.....he's the type that breaks the play up and gets attacks moving.Similar to gilberto,edu and vieira...which can't be bad!!!

      Whilst it's always good to have a collection of good young players you also need four or five good experienced players as well.

      Good post though.

      • I agree nicky, ribery has not looked that great when i have seen him,
        he runs around a great deal but as you said with his head down
        Not a great deal of end product the only thing i can think is wenger is going to convert him to another position???
        Cos i cant see where in midfield he would fitt.
        I dont agree that he could replace freddie, crock seems to think that what he would be bought for
