vanpersie_1As we are heading to a new year, it finally seems as if we are getting closer to having all of our first team players fit and ready for selection. This is obviously a really good thing for the club, fans and the manager but it will also mean that the latter will have some serious decisions to make in the up and coming weeks.

ljungberg_1Alot of us have played championship manager, infact if you haven't played championship manager then your sad for not spending some part of your life stuck infront of your computer not knowing where the time has gone and not caring about anything else apart from who your going to buy in the summer.

It is clear that over the last year or so Wenger has been looking to add more fleet-footed players to the squad in the hope of producing a team more proficient at the counter-attack. This can be seen in the signings of Ryo Miyaichi, Wellington Silva, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Gervinho who are more suited to being played out wide on the flanks.

    So let me stop reminiscing of days gone by and let me focus on our Welsh wonder. Let me start off by saying that I think it is quite obvious that Aaron Ramsey is better in central midfield.
